DSE to Benefit from SADC Countries Linking Stock Exchanges

THE Committee of Southern Africa Stock Exchanges says it will explore technological ways of linking trading and order systems of Sadc stock markets, committee chairperson Mrs Beatrice Nkanza has said.

This would help to increase the effectiveness of Sadc’s 10 stock exchanges including DSE.

Other CoSSE members apart from  Dar es Salaam Stock Exchange of Tanzania are Botswana Stock Exchange, Malawi Stock Exchange, Stock Exchange of Mauritius, Bolsa de Valores de Mozambique, Namibian Stock Exchange, South Africa’s JSE Ltd, Swaziland Stock Exchange, Zambia’s Lusaka Stock Exchange, and the Zimbabwe Stock Exchange.

Mrs Nkanza, who is also the chief executive of Lusaka Stock Exchange, said the committee was working closely with various Sadc institutions to support development of regional systems, including payment and was expected to boost visibility of trading data and enhance its joint website.

The Dar es Salaam Stock Exchange (winner of The Best Sustainable Stock Exchange of the Year 2011, Africa” by the World Finance ) have joined nine other stock exchanges in the Southern African Development (SADC) to adopt a digital platform. This will hopefully increase productivity and efficiency for smooth functioning and growth of market operations in completing cross border transactions.

Technology is opening doors and is the basis for changes in investor behavior and expectations. Considering the number of companies in Dar es Salaam there aren’t anywhere as many listed on the Dar es Salaam Stock Exchange.

Through meticulous planning and a well thought out implementation of the process, there are numerous benefits to listing your company on the stock exchange. For example, it creates a market for the company’s shares enhancing the status and financial standing of your company.
You increase market exposure, public awareness and interest in the company along with your services and products. It boosts the companies’ corporate profile as there will be an added element of trust and credibility.

Trade at Dar es Salaam Stock Exchange Drops

HOPES for increased trade at the Dar es Salaam Stock Exchange (DSE) is now pegged on the reporting seasons for listed firms and banks’ interim financial results.

This follows the bearish mood the bourse exhibited in the last few weeks, where during the week ending last Friday turnover dropped by 755 per cent.

The Tanzania Securities Chief Executive Officer (CEO), Mr Moremi Marwa, said the market may as well correct marginally on more profit taking as second quarter announcements comes into play.

“Despite the short term weaknesses exhibited by the bourse,” Mr Marwa said, “we anticipate more activity in the coming week as the reporting season for listed companies and banks” interim results set in.”

The CEO said in the brokerage’s weekly market report issued over the weekend that they anticipated presence of foreign investors will continue particularly taking position in the NMB counter, though in small bits due to the general lack of supply.

The report shows that week-onweek turnover dropped to 243m/- from 995m/- equals to a slid of 755 per cent.

The activity levels also shrunk on lower local and foreign participation with shares traded plummeting to 186,496 shares or 896 per cent.

“Both indices witnessed a bearish week,” Mr Marwa said. The DSE all share index (DSEI) closed 0.02 per cent lower at 1,441.12 points.

The Tanzania Share Index (TSI) ended the week at 1,220.88 points a climb down of – 0.07 per cent, mainly pulled by CRDB that lost ground by 2.04 per cent to close the week at 120/- per share.

Zan Securities CEO Mr Raphael Masumbuko said the trend shows that the bourse trading normally picked up in the second half as investors have less obligation compared to the opening of the year due to end year effects.

“The trading normally picks up in July to the rest of the year, but we are not seeing that at the moment,” Mr Masumbuko told the ‘Daily News’ earlier in the last week. He added: “We are assuming the situation will normalise in the near future.”

Generally, the weekly report shows that banking sector moved 54 per cent of the total volume that exchanged hands during the week and 14 per cent of the market turnover.

Foreign investors’ participation during the week decreased significantly to 16 per cent compared to 79 per cent recorded during the previous week.

Foreigners were dominant in NMB which accounted for 51 per cent and CRDB 12 per cent of total trading on the banks counters.

The industrial and allied (IA) segments moved 46 per cent of total market’s activity and 86 per cent of the total turnover.

Dr. Mgimwa – Waziri Wa Fedha Tanzania akionyesha mkoba wa bajeti ya serikali kwa mwaka 2012/13

Dodoma, Tanzania:  SERIKALI imetangaza bajeti ya shilingi trilioni 15 kwa mwaka wa fedha 2012/2013.

Kwa mujibu wa Waziri wa Fedha, Dk William Mgimwa, pamoja na mambo mengine, bajeti hiyo imelenga kudhibiti mfumuko wa bei kwa kutangaza kutoa vibali vya kuingiza chakula kutoka nje, na kuwabana matajiri kwa kuongeza kodi ya bidhaa zisizokuwa za lazima.

Akisoma bajeti hiyo bungeni mjini Dodoma jana, Dk Mgimwa pia alitangaza kwamba Serikali imepanua wigo wa Kodi ya Mishahara (Paye) na sasa itawagusa wafanyakazi wenye kipato cha kuanzia Sh170,000 badala ya Sh135,000 ya awali.

Amesema, Serikali pia imerejesha mafunzo ya Jeshi la Kujenga Taifa (JKT) kwa kutenga Sh7 bilioni kwa ajili ya kuchukua vijana 5,000.

Dk Mgimwa amelieleza Bunge kuwa, Serikali imeongeza kodi za bidhaa mbalimbali, zikiwemo, bia, soda, sigara, juisi zinazoingizwa kutoka nje na kufuta msamaha wa ushuru wa bidhaa kwa magari kwa wote waliokuwa wananufaika na msamaha huo.

Alifafanua kwamba kodi ya vinywaji baridi imepanda kutoka Sh69 kwa lita hadi Sh83 na mvinyo unaotengenezwa kwa zabibu inayozalishwa nchini kwa kiwango kinachozidi asilimia 75, imeshuka kutoka Sh425 kwa lita hadi 145 kwa lita.

Wabunge wameelezwa kuwa, kodi ya mvinyo unaotengenezwa kwa zabibu inayozalishwa nje ya nchi kwa kiwango kinachozidi asilimia 25, imepanda kutoka Sh1,345 kwa lita hadi 1,614 kwa lita.

Dk Mgimwa amesema, kodi ya vinywaji vikali imepanda kutoka Sh1,993 kwa lita hadi Sh2,392 kwa lita, bia inayotengenezwa nchini kwa nafaka na ambayo haijaoteshwa, kodi yake imepanda kutoka Sh248 kwa lita hadi Sh310 kwa lita. Bia nyingine zote kodi imepanda kutoka Sh420 hadi Sh525 kwa lita.

Kuhusu ushuru wa bidhaa za sigara, Dk Mgimwa alisema, sigara zote zisizo na kichungi na zinazotengenezwa kwa tumbaku inayozalishwa nchini, kiwango cha angalau asilimia 75, kodi imepanda kutoka Sh6,820 hadi Sh 8,210 kwa sigara 1,000.

Alisema Sigara zenye kichungi na zinazotengenezwa kwa tumbaku inayopatikana nchini kwa kiwango cha angalau asilimia 75, kodi imepanda kutoka Sh16,114 hadi Sh19,410 na sigara nyingine zenye sifa tofauti na makundi hayo, kodi imepanda kutoka Sh29,264 hadi Sh35,117 kwa sigara 1,000.

Alisema tumbaku ambayo ipo tayari kutengenezwa sigara (cut filler) kodi yake imepanda kutoka Sh14,780 hadi Sh17,736 kwa bunda la sigara 1,000 wakati ushuru wa cigars unabaki kuwa asilimia 30.

Katika bajeti hiyo, Waziri Dk Mgimwa alisema muda wa maongezi (airtime) kwenye simu za mkononi umeongezeka kutoka asilimia 10 hadi 12.

Alisema lengo la hatua hiyo ni kuoanisha ushuru wa bidhaa unaotozwa na huduma hiyo katika nchi za Jumuiya ya Afrika ya Mashariki (EAC), kwa kipindi hiki ambacho nchi zipo katika Soko la Pamoja.

Alisema hatua hizo za ongezeko la ushuru wa bidhaa kwa pamoja, zinatarajiwa kuongeza mapato ya Serikali kwa kiasi cha Sh144,054.9 milioni.

Waziri huyo alipendekeza kufanyika marekebisho kwenye sheria husika za kodi ya matangazo ya Serikali yanayotoa msamaha wa kodi kwenye magari kwa walengwa mbalimbali ili kuweka ukomo wa umri wa miaka minane kwa magari hayo badala ya miaka 10.

Alisema magari yenye umri wa zaidi ya miaka minane yatatozwa ushuru wa bidhaa wa asilimia 20. Lengo la hatua hiyo ni kupunguza wimbi la uingizaji magari chakavu na kulinda mazingira.

Alitangaza pia marekebisho katika ushuru wa forodha, ikiwemo kufuta msamaha wa ushuru wa forodha katika vitu mbalimbali vikiwemo magari yenye ujazo wa CC 3000 huku pia ushuru wa forodha ukifutwa katika bidhaa nyingine nyingi muhimu.

Alisema katika kuhamasisha na kuchochea ukuaji wa sekta ya ufugaji wa nyuki, vifaa vinavyotumika katika ufugaji na kurina asali vimepewa msamaha wa ushuru wa forodha vinavyoingizwa kutoka nje ya nchi na wafugaji wa nyuki.

Alisema msamaha wa ushuru wa forodha kwenye migahawa ya majeshi ya ulinzi utaendelea kutolewa kwa kipindi cha mwaka mmoja.

Alisema kumefanyika marekebisho katika Sheria ya Forodha ya Jumuiya ya Afrika ya Mashariki ya mwaka 2004 ili kutoa msamaha wa ushuru wa forodha kwa wazalishaji wa vyakula vinavyotengenezwa mahsusi kwa lishe ya watoto wenye utapiamlo na watu wanaoishi na Virusi Vya Ukimwi.

Alisema kuwa katika Bajeti hiyo, pia wametoa msamaha wa ushuru wa forodha kwenye malighafi zinazotumika katika kutengeneza vifaa vya kufanyia uchunguzi wa magonjwa (medical diognastic kits) kwa kuwa vifaa hivyo hutozwa asilimia sifuri vinapoagizwa kutoka nje ya nchi.

Katika marekebisho hayo, utatolewa msamaha kwenye mitambo (machinery) na vipuri vyake vinavyotumika kwenye uchimbaji wa madini lakini hautahusisha vipuri vya magari vitakavyoagizwa na makampuni yanayojihusisha na uchimbaji wa madini.

Katika bajeti hiyo, pia umetolewa msamaha wa ushuru wa forodha kwenye vyuma vinavyowekwa kwenye kingo za barabara na lengo lake ni kutoa unafuu katika ujenzi wa miundombinu ya barabara.

Alisema ushuru wa forodha umepunguzwa kwa ving’amuzi kutoka asilimia 25 hadi asilimia sifuri ili kuwezesha mabadiliko katika teknolojia ya analogia na kwenda katika teknologia ya digitali.

Alisema katika Bajeti hiyo, pia ushuru wa ngano umeondolewa kuwa asilimia 0 badala ya asilimia 35.

Alisema Serikali pia imesamehe VAT katika mashine za kutolea stakabadhi (electronic fiscal devices), ili kupunguza bei yake na kuwezesha wafanyabiashara wengi kuwa nazo, kuhamasisha matumizi yake na hivyo, kuongeza mapato ya Serikali.

Katika eneo hilo, Serikali imeondoa VAT kwa vifaa mbalimbali vya kuhifadhia, kusafirisha na kusambaza gesi asilia ili kuongeza matumizi ya nishati hiyo katika sekta mbalimbali za kiuchumi, kwenye magari, majumbani na viwandani.

Wafanyabiashara ambao mapato yao hayazidi Sh3,000,000 hawatalipa kodi kuanzia Julai Mosi, mwaka huu. Dk Mgimwa alisema mpango huo umefanywa kulinda mapato ya Serikali.

Kabla ya msamaha huo, wafanyabiashara hao ambao mapato yao hayazidi Sh3,000,000 walikuwa wanalipa Sh35,000.

Marekebisho mengine ya kodi ya mapato ni kuwa wenye mapato kati ya Sh3 milioni –Sh7.5 milioni watalipa Sh100,000 badala ya Sh95,000.

Waziri Mgimwa alisema Bajeti hiyo imejielekeza katika Kukuza Pato la Taifa kwa asilimia 6.8 mwaka 2012 ikilinganishwa na ukuaji wa asilimia 6.4 mwaka 2011.

Malengo mengine ni kuimarisha miundombinu ya uchumi, ikijumuisha umeme, barabara, reli na bandari, kuongeza upatikanaji wa huduma za kifedha na kuongezeka kwa mapato ya ndani yatakayofikia uwiano na Pato la Taifa wa asilimia 18 kwa mwaka 2012/13 kulinganisha na mwelekeo wa asilimia 16.9 mwaka 2011/12.

Dk Mgimwa alitaja malengo mengine kuwa ni pamoja na kuendelea kudhibiti mfumuko wa bei ili urudi kwenye viwango vya tarakimu moja na kuwa na kiwango tengemavu cha ubadilishaji wa fedha kitakachotokana na mwenendo wa soko la fedha.

Malengo mengine ni kukuza mikopo kwa sekta binafsi kwa kiwango cha asilimia 20 ya Pato la Taifa ifikapo mwishoni mwa Juni 2013, sambamba na jitihada za kudhibiti mfumuko wa bei, kuboresha mazingira ya wafanyabiashara wadogo na wa kati, kulinda na kuendeleza mafanikio yaliyopatikana katika sekta za huduma za jamii, kuimarisha utawala bora na uwajibikaji na kujenga uwezo wa nchi kukabiliana na misukosuko ya kiuchumi na kifedha pamoja na kushiriki kwa ufanisi katika ushirikiano kikanda na kimataifa.

Kuhusu matumizi ya maendeleo, Waziri Mgimwa alisema itazingatia vipaumbele vya miundombinu ya umeme – mkazo ukiwa upatikanaji wake kwa kuongeza uzalishaji, usafirishaji na usambazaji na jumla Sh498.9 bilioni zimetengwa.

Tips for Investing in Initial Public Offering (IPOs)

Most people think Stocks investments is just eating a piece of cake. You do not have to be there physically to control your investments, you just browse daily or weekly on Dar es Salaam Stock Exchange site and manage your portfolio and your money multiplies.

Sounds so much Easier. In the days of dotcom mania, investors could throw money into an IPO and be almost guaranteed killer returns. Numerous companies, experienced huge first-day gains, but ended up  disappointing investors in the long-term. People who had the foresight to get  in, and out, on some of these companies, made investing look way too easy.

However, no investment is a sure thing. Investors could no  longer expect the double and triple-digit gains they got in the early tech IPO  days simply by flipping stocks. There is  still money to be made in IPOs, but the focus has shifted from the quick buck to  the long-term outlook. Rather than trying to capitalize on a stock’s initial  bounce, investors are more inclined to carefully scrutinize long-term prospects.
IPOs can be a risky investment. For the individual investor, it is tough to  predict what the stock will do on its initial day of trading and in the near  future because there is often little historical data with which to  analyze the company. Also, most IPOs are of companies going through a  transitory growth period, which are subject to additional uncertainty regarding  their future values.

WHAT IS AN IPO?

  ‘An IPO is The first sale of stock by a private company to the public. IPOs are  often issued by smaller, younger companies seeking the capital to  expand, but can also be done by large privately owned companies looking to  become publicly traded.’

 Even if you have a longer-term focus, finding a good IPO is difficult. IPOs have  many unique risks that make them different from the average stock which has been  trading for a while. If you do decide to take a chance on an IPO, here are five  points to keep in mind: 

1. Objective research is a scarce commodity 

Getting  information on companies set to go public is tough. Unlike most publicly traded  companies, private companies do not have swarms of  analysts covering them, attempting to uncover possible cracks in their corporate armor.  Remember that although most companies try to fully disclose all information in  their prospectus it is still written by  them and not by an unbiased third-party.

Search the Internet for  information on the company and its competitors, financing, past press releases,  as well as overall industry health. Even though info may be scarce, learning as  much as you can about the company is a crucial step in making a wise investment.  On the other hand, your research may lead to the discovery that a company’s  prospects are being overblown and that not acting on the investment opportunity  is the best idea.

2. Pick a company with strong brokers

Try to select a  company that has a strong underwriter.  I am not saying that the big investment banks never bring duds public, but in  general, quality brokerages bring quality companies public. Exercise more  caution when selecting smaller brokerages, because they may be willing to  underwrite any company.  However, one positive of smaller brokers is that, because of their smaller  client base, they make it easier for the individual investor to purchase pre-IPO  shares. Be aware  that most large brokerage firms will not allow your first investment to be an  IPO. The only individual investors who get in on IPOs are long-standing,  established (and often high-net-worth) customers. Of course in our country most of the brokerage firms aims at SELLING instead of ADVISING an investor.

3. Always read the prospectus

I have told you not to put all  your faith in it, but you should never skip reading the prospectus. It may be a  dry read, but the prospectus lays out the company’s risks and opportunities,  along with the proposed uses for the money raised by the IPO.

For example, if  the money is going to repay loans, or buy the equity from founders or private  investors, then look out! It is a bad sign if the company cannot afford to repay  its loans without issuing stock. Money that is going towards research, marketing  or expanding into new markets paints a better picture. Most companies have  learned that over-promising and under-delivering are mistakes often made by  those vying for marketplace success. Therefore, one of the biggest things to be  on the lookout for while reading a prospectus is an overly optimistic future  earnings outlook; this means reading the projected accounting figures carefully.
You can always request the prospectus from the broker bringing the  company public.  Get a professional to help you understand the prospectus because not anyone can read and understand the accounting information and statements disclosed in a prospectus.

4. Be cautious

Skepticism is a positive attribute to  cultivate in the IPO market. As i mentioned earlier, there is always a lot of  uncertainty surrounding IPOs, mainly because of the lack of available  information. Therefore, you should always approach an IPO with caution.
If your broker recommends an IPO, you should exercise increased caution.  This is a clear indication that most institutions and money managers have  graciously passed on the underwriter’s attempts to sell them stock. In this  situation, individual investors are likely getting the bottom feed, the  leftovers that the “big money” didn’t want. If your broker is strongly pitching  shares, there is probably a reason behind the high number of these available  stocks. This brings up an important point: even if you find a company going  public that you deem to be a worthwhile investment, it’s possible you won’t be  able to get shares. Brokers have a habit of saving their IPO allocations for  favored clients, so unless you are a high roller, chances are good that you  won’t be able to get in.

5. Consider waiting for the lock-up period to end

The lock-up period is a legally binding contract (Mostly 3 to 24 months)  between the underwriters and insiders of the company prohibiting them from  selling any shares of stock for a specified period.
The point here is that waiting until insiders are free to sell their shares is  not a bad strategy, because if they continue to hold stock once the lock-up  period has expired, it may be an indication that the company has a bright and  sustainable future. During the lock-up period, there is no way to tell whether  insiders would in fact be happy to take the spot price of the stock or not.

Let the market take its course before you take the plunge. A good company is  still going to be a good company, and a worthy investment, even after the  lock-up period expires.

The Bottom Line

By no means  I am suggesting that all IPOs should be avoided: some investors who have  bought stock at the IPO price have been rewarded handsomely by the companies in  question. Every month successful companies go public, but it is difficult to  sift through the riffraff and find the investments with the most potential. Just  keep in mind that when it comes to dealing with the IPO market, a skeptical and  informed investor is likely to perform much better than one who is not.

Happy reading and Go beat the Market!

Monica.
