Welcome to the start of Week 25 of 2024. It’s going to be a fairly big one this week. Here’s what investors at home should be keeping an eye on.

Worth noting is that on Thursday, Guzman Y Gomez are expected to list on the market.

That listing is, in a word, controversial. Finance types in Sydney have all come together to value the Mexican fast food chain at $2.2B, despite it expecting to make less than $10M in FY25. Yes, that’s in AUD.

How exactly a company can be worth A$2.2B on earnings under A$10M boggles the mind and defies all common sense. By all accounts, most people perceive that valuation to be an inflated one that serves the purposes of managers behind the listing – not the everyday consumer.

Still, Guzman Y Gomez lets you walk out the door with a margarita slushy. There’s definitely value in that.
