Budget Blues australia

The australian budget 2009 is out, and as every budget does this one will to – “ Make some people happy and some people Not SO happy”. $22 billion is gonna be one of the big spens on infrastructure building.

Budgets can never be made to please everybody.So there will be the people who are pissed off and the people who are happy , and i do know the latter would surely be the pensioners. After all the hula bula going on in the media , 7 news , Channel 10 News and all other australian tv channels about the pensioners getting a raw deal and below the poverty line etc. they have managed to gets Rudd's attention and dealt a winner.

So how its gonna effect us normal people trading on the stock market and looking to make a extra buck. Well for one we know there is a massive amount earmarked for the infrastructure spend by the government . So whos gonna be affected by this.

One of my favorite stocks come to mind Leighton Holdings . i would be definitely keeping a close eye on this one and if i was you maybe getting some of these if i had some extra cash at the moment.

Other companies worth keeping in your watch list

  • Macmohan Holdings
  • Macquarie infrastructure fund ( Infrastructure funds )
  • Babcock and Brown infrastructure ( infrastructure funds )
