Unemployment, Energy Sector, Ethanol Plant, Stock Thoughts: MER

Unemployment

Social Weather Stations (SWS) estimates unemployment rate at 24.6% .

I don’t get it. If that would be the unemployment rate then should we be at a recession?

National Statistical Coordination Board (NSCB) estimates unemployment rate this January at 7.2%.

I prefer to rely on NSCB data.

I am open for any alternative thoughts.

 

Energy Sector

Few take the energy security seriously. In the coming years, assuming the Philippine economy continues to grow; there will be an electricity shortage.

 

How will an individual investor play this opportunity? Invest long-term on stocks that are into electricity trading and electricity generation.

My opinion only.

Ethanol Plant

Gokongwei plans more power and ethanol projects in Negros:

Gokongwei is planning to do what ROX is already doing. Lol

MER

MER is seeking for more power?

Increase in electricity volume sold by MER means an increase in the revenue of MER.
