The Financial Outlook for Personal Investors: The economics of football clubs
With the World Cup in full flow and Manchester United up for sale, Russ Mould of A J Bell looks at the economics of football clubs. Although Man United was worth $78m when it floated in 1991 and is, in theory, set to sell for upwards of $4bn, for investors of late it, and every other club, has proved a poor investment. Russ explains how modern football financing works, pointing out that, in good times, all the money seems to go to the talent.

The Financial Outlook For Personal Investors: Has Real Estate bottomed?
Russ Mould of A J Bell explains why interest rates are so important for property and why shares such as Real Estate Investment Trusts fall as the 10-year "risk free" gilt yield goes up. But many are on big discounts to net asset value (which may yet fall of course). Central banks are more worried about deflation than inflation, reckons Russ, and if interest rates are peaking, it may be worth keeping an eye on the sector, bearing in mind that there are many different types of REITS and lots carry a good deal of debt.

The Financial Outlook for Personal Investors: Markets and the Autumn Statement
Victoria Scholar of Interactive Investor takes Simon Rose through the main points of the Chancellor's Autumn Statement. Investors will want to take note of the changes to dividends and Capital Gains Tax. She points out that market reaction was fairly muted although the electricity companies' shares were incredibly volatile. As so often, these days, of course, much of what Jeremy Hunt had to say had already been well signposted in advance.

The Financial Outlook For Personal Investors: Dividend traps and the investing Holy Grail
Russ Mould of A J Bell looks at the housebuilders, hit by inflation, mortgage problems and dwindling demand with some cutting dividends. Pointing out the dangers of double-digit yielding shares, he wonders if the sector might be worth looking at soon. Although investors often go for growth or income, the Holy Grail, he says is a company that grows its dividend consistently, which will then produce both outcomes. How to find them? Do your homework with proper research.

The Financial Outlook for Personal Investors: US & UK interest rate rises & the latest from Sainsbury's
Richard Hunter, head of markets at Interactive Investor, updates Simon Rose on the latest 0.75% interest rate rises from the US Fed and the Bank of England's Monetary Policy Committee. As he explains, markets have reacted badly, more in response to the statements about the future, than to the rises themselves. He assesses Sainsbury's half-year numbers which show just how difficult times are for the supermarkets, with the discounters becoming ever more of a problem. Although the shares reacted positively, it is after a decline of around 30% over the last year.

The Financial Outlook for Personal Investors: Has normality returned to markets & are bonds worthwhile again?
Laith Khalaf of A J Bell tells Simon Rose that, to a large extent, normality has been restored to financial markets since Rishi Sunak becamse Prime Minister. Although the Autumn Statement has been delayed to November 17, the markets appear not be too concerned. Laith explains what the markets are expecting when the MPC meets next week and advises investors to keep an eye on bonds, which – although not beating inflation – are considerably more interesting than a year ago.

The Financial Outlook for Personal Investors: Contrarian investing after 14 years of mispricing money unravels
Russ Mould of A J Bell looks at the housebuilding sector and wonders if, in a tidal wave of bearishness, this is an opportunity for contrarian investors. He suggests bond yield proxies such as REITs are worth looking at. There are many types and, though offices may not fill again, the likes of supermarkets and online warehouses won't vanish. What we're seeing in the markets, he says, is the result of money being mispriced for 14 years and the encouragement of leverage and unwitting encouragement of complexity.
