Popis

Zajímá vás jak, do čeho a kde investovat? Publikace v angličtině vám prozradí, jaké existují trendy napříč komoditami (obory) i regiony. Bude vás informovat o tom, v kterých světadílech ba podrobněji státech existují jací „akcioví tahouni“. Zda jsou v růstu, stabilitě nebo naopak klesají či nebezpečně kolísají. Seznámí vás s tím, jaké dnes existují indexy, zda investovat v Číně, USA či některém evropském státě apod. Index Investing is a comprehensive guide for everyone who wants to know their way through the jungle of indices and asset classes. This publication clearly explains stock indices, bond indices, currencies & interest rates, precious metals & raw materials, volatility & hedge funds. This is for the first time that a single book provides a detailed and systematic presentation of all major underlyings of existing investment certificates and warrants. Besides the widely known indices, the reader will have the opportunity to realize what lies behind such “exotic” market barometers as, e.g. “AMEX Gold Bugs” or “NIFTY 50, along with obtaining crucial information about the best certificates available. The aim of the present book is to make the readers familiar with 150 most important investment markets and to introduce them to optimal ways of investing in individual asset classes. Institute for Financial Market was launched at the end of 2007 as a research institute of the Faculty of Economics and Administration, Masaryk University.

CECE-EURO Index

Characteristics

After Eastern Europe had gone through political and economic changes,

Western investors, having recognized the commercial potential of formersocialist republics, became increasingly interested in the countries of the former

Soviet block. They had not been mistaken; competitiveness of these countries

remarkably increased in the following years, as they were flooded by foreign

capital and direct investments. Austrians were the first to start cooperation

with the former Eastern block after the Iron Wall had fallen. Therefore, it is not

surprising that the main stock barometer for the region of Eastern Europe is

calculated by the Vienna Stock Exchange. Apart from regional stock indices

– CTX for the Czech Republic, PTX for Poland and HTX for Hungary – this stock

exchange determines value of the CECE EURO Index which associates those

regional indices. The value of CECE EURO is quoted both in EUR and USD.

The index currently comprises of 26 companies. While constructing the

index, its creators attempted not to overestimate the importance of strong

regional companies. Thus the weight representation of individual countries

corresponds to their real economic situation. Therefore, Poland takes up 50

per cent of the index weight, the Czech Republic 30 and Hungary 20 per cent.

Sector structure is balanced as well. Roughly 85 per cent of the index value

is taken up by sectors which are exceptionally important for development

of these emerging markets. To be specific, we could name the financial,

telecommunications, and energy sectors. From what we have said so far, one

might think that a broad and thorough reflection of market situation is the most

important principle to be used in composition of the index. Yet, there seems

to be a more important one - the degree to which the particular economies

are open to investments. In order to readjust the index, the CECE board pays

attention only to shares with appropriate market capitalization. At the same

time, these must have a high liquidity. Thanks to their political stability, the

three countries fare well indeed. It is necessary to say that such a thing is not

very typical of transforming economies.

DJ STOXX EU

Enlarged Market Index

Characteristics

STOXX Ltd., a creator and provider of indices, takes its time! It was only

at the end of October 2004 that it reacted to the enlargement of European

Union. The DJ STOXX EU Enlarged Total Market Index is supposed to measure

performance of stock exchanges in ten countries which became members of

the EU on 1 May 2004: Cyprus, the Czech Republic, Estonia, Hungary, Latvia,

Lithuania, Malta, Poland, Slovakia and Slovenia. At the same time, this welldiversified stock basket is used as a universum for the DJ STOXX EU Enlarged

15 Index (a blue chip barometer for new European regions).

With this index which covers the whole market, STOXX Ltd. intends to cover

around 95 per cent of shares which are freely traded in the new member

countries. This is the reason why free float value of a particular company is

probably the most important criterion for admission into the index. In addition

to that, only equities are considered and traded. Those index members which

were not traded in ten days of the last three months stay out. The index offers

a Total-Market variant as well, and therefore, its value is increased by paid out

dividends. Readjustment of the index composition is carried out quarterly.

In mid-2005, the DJ STOXX Enlarged Markets Index comprised of 109

shares. Poland represented by 40 per cent, is the most important region for

the index. On the other hand, the contribution of, for example, Latvia is negligible indeed – only 0.2 per cent. In spite of all that has been said, the real

heavyweight comes from Hungary. OTP, the largest commercial bank in the

country, is represented by 14.08 per cent. Financial sector and its 33 per cent

clearly dominate the index. Being represented by approximately 17 per cent,

companies from the sector of telecommunications, energy and gas production.

The index performance can be traced back to 31 December 2002. This is

when the calculations of the EU Enlarged Total Market Index started at initial

100 points. Nowadays, the index has more than 200 points. During the same

period, investment into the Dow Jones STOXX 600 would yield a profit of ‘only’

40 per cent. It is not surprising that the EU newcomers are not allowed into the

barometer. Guys at STOXX Ltd are taking their time again!

WIG 20 Index

Characteristics

In the recent years, capital markets of the Eastern Europe have been the

greatest and brightest stars of the stock exchange sky. The Warsaw Stock

Exchange was one of those that achieved the greatest growth. One of the

oldest stock exchanges started to trade securities with fixed interest as early

as 1817. However, trading at the stock exchange gradually fell after the WWII.

Immediately after the Iron Curtain was ‘drawn up’ the first resuscitation

attempts started in order to pick up the threads of the stock exchange's

"golden times".

And indeed, the Warsaw stock exchange reopened in 1991 and brought off

a growth incentive for the young Polish economy. Three years later, the stock

exchange was ready to launch its WIG 20 Index. This index comprises of 20

largest and most liquid Polish companies which are represented in the index

according to their market capitalizations.

In the WIG 20, a single business sector can be represented by no more than

five companies. Composition of the index is reviewed every March; individual

weight representations are adjusted quarterly. In case of need, the index

may be subjected to exceptional changes, e. g. in case that trading with a

new share of adequate market capitalization is supposed to start. This Polish

index is calculated every fifteen seconds of the exchange trading day. WIG 20

competes with the Austrian PTX Index. However, PTX currently comprises of

only 11 companies, and is calculated on the basis of stock prices defined at

the Vienna Stock Exchange. Both heavyweights are represented by roughly

14 per cent. Polski Koncern Naftowy Orlen (the largest oil mining and refining

company in Central Europe) ranked first and is followed by KGHM, a producer

of copper and silver. The imaginary bronze medal glitters on the chest of

Pekao bank, and the unpopular fourth place belongs to TPSA telecommunication business group.

PTX-EURO

Polish Traded Index

Characteristics

Closely watched benchmark PTX-EURO Polish Traded Index showsperformance of Polish stock market in EUR. However, PTX was not created in Poland but by

the Vienna Stock Exchange in Austria. Austrians soon realized what their spatial

proximity to countries of former communist block could mean and thus theycreated the CECE index family. Apart from the Polish PTX index, this family consists

of CTX (Czech Republic) and HTX (Hungary). According to data from Vienna,

only standard stock companies with high market capitalization and liquidity are

included into these indices. In principle, all exchange barometers are calculated

both in EUR and USD.

The fact that East European markets are still in the ‘emerging’ phase of their

development is demonstrated on relatively narrow selection of companies

included into the indices mentioned earlier. In spite of the fact that Warsaw has

the second largest East-European stock exchange, the index and its mere 11

blue chips represents 52 per cent of the aggregate market capitalization and

approximately 44 per cent of all trades. The Polish “eleven“ thus represents a

concentrated form of the WIG 20, the national index.

This exchange barometer for Polish blue chips was introduced in April 1994;

however, it did not manage to succeed. High degree of selection in the PTX-EURO

Index goes hand in hand with creation of large units: four of the index members

take up approximately two thirds of the whole benchmark. Total market capitalization of EUR 25 billion is divided among several heavyweights. Telekom Polska

represents 24.5 per cent of the capitalization, PKN Orlen, an oil refining company

and a provider of a network of gas stations, takes up more than 20 per cent as

well. These two companies are followed by representatives of the financial sector.

Bank Pekao, largerly owned by Italian UniCredito, represents 15 per cent of the

index value. The centre of the PXT-EURO Index is created by PKO Bank Polski (13

per cent) and BPH owned by Bank Austria (10 per cent). Representatives of the

hi-tech sector occupy the bottom of the company ranking: Prokom Software, the

Polish competitor of SAP, is the absolute lightweight of the index. If investors intend

to put their money into Eastern Europe, they may very likely prefer a wider index

which focuses on the three companies: CECE-EURO. This index is diversified in a

much better way.

BUX Index

Characteristics

In Formula 1, Hungary has played and important role for a long time already.

The prestigious series of races made its debut in Budapest in 1986. It was

the first F1 race ever in a state from the Eastern Bloc. By its fast growth, the

Hungarian stock exchange somehow resembles F1. The leading BUX Index

doubled its value since the beginning of the new millennium. The real stock

exchange pyrotechnics was caused by Hungarian admission into the EU in May

2004. Since this historic moment, the BUX Index has gained more than 9,000

points and on 20 July it exceeded 20,000 points for the first time. Remarkable

performance indeed, especially if we consider that in 1991, the BUX Index

started with 1,000 points.

However, the engine of Hungarian rising economy has seized up a bit

recently. After the economic growth had reached 4 per cent in 2004 – the

highest figure in the past four years – it fell to 2.9 per cent in the first quarter

of 2005.

In spite of that, the country of Csabai sausages, Puszta and Danube soon

broke free from the manacles of communism and created an economically favourable environment. For example Audi, a daughter company of

Volkswagen, has had its factory in Györ for more than ten years, and presently,

it is the largest exporter and investor in Hungary. Though this Germancompany is not included in the BUX Index at all, its example is a symbol of the change

and rise of Hungary.

The market capitalization of the BUX Index is EUR 25 billion, which represents roughly 58 per cent of all companies quoted at the Hungarian stockmarket. The BUX Index is dominated by four companies out of twelve. Nearly 90

per cent of the index weight is taken up by Magyar Telecom, OTP Bank, MOL

oil and gas company and Gedeon Richter, a company producingpharmaceuticals. Out of these, it is OTP Bank that stands out with 32 per cent. This largest

commercial bank in Hungary concentrates on private customers; 60 per cent

of means invested into housing in Hungary were provided by this bank.

HTX-EURO

Hungarian Traded Index

Characteristics

The Hungarian HTX Index attracts attention not only by its relative performance, but also by its real gains. The same trend, however, could be seen

in all other barometers that focus on economies of new member states of

the EU. The HTX benchmark, calculated by the Vienna Stock Exchange, has

managed to more than double its value in the recent three years. Thus its

performance perfectly reflects changes in Hungarian economy. In 2004,

Hungarian economy grew by 4 per cent per year, which was slightly less than

in any other transforming post-communist states of Eastern Europe. However,

the current growth of Hungarian economy has surpassed economic growth of

original member states of EU. Hungary excelled in keeping the unemployment

rate down too; it oscillated around 6 per cent. It is remarkable especially if we

consider the fact that unemployment rates in new member countries of the EU

were by nearly 8 per cent higher.

Consistent privatization policies and general legal conditions set in such a

way that they do not hamper the influx of investments were the most important

factors that led to the success of Hungarian economy. After the privatization of

Hungarian economy had been finished, competition from new member states

of the EU grew stronger. Hungarian government initiated certain projects that

were supposed to compensate for the decrease of investment. Having done

this, the government attempted to promote the strategic location of Hungary

and attract research centres into the country. They also wish to stick to their

knitting, which is evident in the fact that Hungary once again focuses ontraditionally strong technological sector and IT.

Whoever wishes to invest in Hungary should be aware of the fact that the

HTX Index is not diversified to a large extent. It comprises of only 8 selected

companies. At the first glance, sector composition of the index seems to be

well balanced. Each of the four most important sectors (energy, telecommunications, finance and pharmaceuticals) takes up 25 per cent of the index

value. However, the four heavyweights, Magyar Telekom, Magyar Olay Gazi,

OTP Bank and Gedeon take up nearly 90 per cent of the index weight. This is

a logical consequence of the fact that only ex-monopolists have marketcapitalization high enough to enable liquid trading.

CTX-EURO

Czech Traded Index

Characteristics

Among all post-communist countries, Czech Republic stands out as an

excellent student of market economy. Governments in Prague managed to

turn an underdeveloped country into a modern society in 15 years. It was only

in 2002 that the Czech economy rested for a while, just to carry on growing.

Last year, Czech GDP rose by six per cent. The rising tendency is predicted for

this year as well.

Such positive development was mainly brought about by vast investments of

foreign companies. In 2005, total volume of investment reached USD 11 billion

and surpassed the record from 2002. However, we should bear in mind the

fact that approximately half of direct investment in 2002 was tightly connected

to privatization project of gas engineering sector. Though it may seem that the

Czech economy does not have any problems, lightheartedness is notappropriate. Unemployment rate in the Czech Republic is still fairly high and situation

of public budgets is quite tense. The state budget deficit has been reduced

recently again to approximately EUR 3 billion. The real indebtness rate (five per

cent of GDP) of Czech Republic is still noticeably higher than the average.

In spite of all that, the Czech Republic has performed exceptionally well,

which was reflected in stock prices. Since 2002, the value of CTX has risen

by more than 300 per cent and the barometer scored 1,500 points. The

Czech Traded Index is calculated by the Vienna Stock Exchange. The fact that

the index comprises of only eight companies can be viewed as potentially

problematic, as it certainly is not what is generally regarded to as ‘optimum

diversification.’ CTX is thus a perfect index for speculatively oriented investors.

Conservative investors are usually interested in East European CECE Index.

PX-D Index (PX Index)

Characteristics

Boom on East European markets had a positive effect on the Czech Republic

as well. Since 1 May 2004 when Czechs entered the EU, the domestic share

index PX-D has strengthened by more than 70 per cent. This market barometer

is published by Prague Stock Exchange. Emissions traded in the SPAD system

can be included into its basis; the number of companies included in the index

is not fixed. The index is calculated as a price index and currently, it shows

performance of nine Czech shares.

Great demand of foreign investors for Czech shares has been recentlyreflected in high volume of trade as well. In this respect, the Prague Stock Exchange

outperformed its Viennese counterpart. This is surprising only if wedeliberately omit the fact that in comparison to Vienna, Warsaw or Budapest, the Prague

Stock Exchange has lower capitalization. The market value of the Czech blue

chip index is approximately EUR 40 billion. To compare: only DaimlerChrysler

would weigh more.

Out of the current nine members of the index, it is the Erste Bank and ČEZ,

a representative of power industry that stand out. These two companies take

up almost 60 per cent of the index weight. Another important company is

Český Telecom, owned by Spanish Telefónica since July 2005. Besides those

blue chips, it was some smaller companies that stirred the stock exchange

in Prague. Thanks to superb sales channels, Zentiva, the leading domestic

producer of pharmaceuticals, has won itself a great position in Eastern Europe,

where sales of generic pharmaceuticals increase dramatically. Within a year,

value of Zentiva shares gained more than 100 per cent.

The perspective of the Czech stock market is supposed to be positive, yet,

it can hardly be expected to reach an overall growth of a hundred per cent in

the short run. A new main index named PX was launched by the Prague Stock

Exchange on 20 March, 2006. Its basis replaced PX-D Index which had been

dissolved after seven years of its existence.

ROTX (Romania)

Characteristics

Different countries have different customs. Should we judge from the ROTX

(Romanian Traded Index), we would say that customs in Romania are really

different to ours. Having been established in 2005 as a common product of

Vienna and Bucharest stock exchanges, the index has been in action for a

short time only. ROTX is a price index, the value of which is calculated both in

local currency and EUR or USD.

It is necessary to get accustomed to the conception of the ROTX Index. Whilst

membership in German DAX and similar market barometers is based onquantitative parameters in the first place, composition of ROTX is based on purely

individual consideration. The index committee considers both of the objective

indicators – market capitalization and stock exchange turnovers – however,

criteria such as sector affinity, negotiability or market attractiveness offer a lot

of freedom in selection. The ROTX Committee, which meets every threemonths, decides upon which companies will be included into or excluded from the

index. Examination and readjustment of the index composition is the common

interest of both Vienna and Bucharest stock exchanges. But there is apeculiarity here as well. Only companies quoted in a special watch list may be accepted

into the index. The decision about accession is made by the committee. Apart

from that, number of index members is not fixed either. Annually, the ROTX

Index comprises of only six companies, three of which take up together nearly

75 per cent of the index weight. In local currency, ROTX gained more than ten

times. Great expectations were decelerated by the European crisis caused by

French rejection of Euro-constitution and unsuccessful negotiations among

representatives of individual EU countries.
