IPOs

IPOs (Initial Public Offerings):

An IPO occurs when a private company sells its stock to the public for the first time to raise capital or money.

The money raised from an IPO can be used for various purposes, such as paying down debt, investing in the company's long-term health, research and development, expanding into new product lines, or purchasing fixed assets.

During the IPO process, the equity shares of private investors

convert into publicly owned shares of the new entity, and early investors may sell their stock once the company's shares begin trading.

The chief benefit of an IPO is to help the company raise money and gain access to the capital markets, allowing for expansion and increasing credibility.

Splits (Stock Splits):

A stock split occurs when a company increases the number of its outstanding shares of stock to boost the stock's liquidity.

In a stock split, the number of shares outstanding increases by a specific multiple, but the total dollar value of all shares remains the same.

Companies often choose to split their stock to lower its trading price to a more comfortable range for most investors and increase the liquidity of trading in its shares.

For example, if a company decides to split its stock 2-for-1, the number of shares outstanding would double, while the share price would be halved.

Old shares

Old shares refer to the existing shares of a company before a stock split takes place. These are the shares that will be exchanged for the new shares resulting from the split.

New shares

New shares are the additional shares that are issued to existing shareholders as a result of a stock split. The number of new shares is determined by the split ratio, such as 2-for-1 or 3-for-2, where shareholders receive a certain number of new shares for each old share they own.

VinFast has new plans

Date: 13.9.2023

In the fast-evolving landscape of the automotive industry, few names have emerged as resolutely as VinFast. Coming from Vietnam, this dynamic automaker has steadily risen to prominence, challenging the status quo and defying conventional wisdom. I found an article on Reuters, which said that they have great plans for Asia expansion.

Article said that VinFast has unveiled plans for a substantial expansion into seven additional Asian markets, with a particular focus on Indonesia. The company, primarily controlled by Vietnam's wealthiest individual, Pham Nhat Vuong, and affiliated with Vingroup, intends to invest approximately 1.2 billion USD in Indonesia over the long term. A significant portion of this investment, up to 200 million USD, is allocated for the construction of a new Indonesian plant, scheduled for operation in 2026, with an annual production capacity ranging from 30,000 to 50,000 units. Indonesia, being Southeast Asia's largest economy with a population of 270 million, is actively working to attract global electric vehicle manufacturers, primarily due to its rich nickel reserves, a vital component in EV batteries. Currently, electric vehicles constitute less than 1% of the country's total vehicle count. This forthcoming Indonesian facility will become VinFast's third, alongside its principal one in Haiphong, Vietnam, and a newly planned plant in North Carolina, set to commence operations in 2025. Since its inception in 2017, VinFast has consistently unveiled ambitious plans for global EV expansion.[1]

Very good news for the company in my opinion, especially Asia being one of the strongest EV markets in the world. Article also continued that in its filing, the electric vehicle manufacturer also disclosed plans to establish a foothold in several countries, including India, Malaysia, the Middle East, Africa, and Latin America, demonstrating a comprehensive expansion strategy targeting approximately 40 to 50 potential markets.

As for their stocks, VinFast is just a newcomer to the markets, as their stocks started publicly trading on 18th of August, so not even one month ago. Since coming to the market, stocks have provided a return of 11,75%, however, this number comes after the down trend.* The highest return they provided on 28th of August, when the price reached 82,35 USD per stock, or 122% return.*

I believe that there is big competition in this sector, however, they have very strong ambitions and plans. That is the reason I will closely follow their stocks movement.

Analysis of the strategic expansion of Amazon Web Services in Germany

As I am very interested in the technology sector, today I have covered the recent announcement by Amazon Web Services (AWS) (NASDAQ: AMZN) of a significant investment in Germany. AWS plans to invest €7.8 billion ($8.44 billion) by 2040 to expand its cloud computing infrastructure, specifically tailored for the European market. This strategic move is not only a significant commitment to expand AWS' global footprint, but also a proactive response to the growing demand for data privacy and localized storage solutions within the EU.
