    • HNP was one of my frustrating experiences. I invested in 2009 around $26 a share. I sold last year around $29 for a small profit. I simply got frustrated with the dividend cutting & had doubts about Chinese bookkeeping.

      I obviously missed the run up since. But I sleep much better. Again, I just do not trust what is reported from Chinese companies, never mind what their government does in the background. I therefore refuse to invest directly in Chinese stocks until the corruption problems diminish.

      China will no doubt be a growth engine for a long time to come. You can have a significant corruption & still generate wealth & prosper. Italy comes to mind. But I plan on profiting here through North American companies that do business in China. Such companies have what China needs & know how to navigate Chinese corruption.

      That's why I invest in companies like Caterpillar, as opposed to HNP. Sure, I liked the idea of a company in its capitalist youth which serves Chinese energy needs. I though I could achieve significant wealth if I held for decades. But I got out after 4 years on the corruption factor.

      It's fashionable to predict a collapse in the US these days. But something tells me it is China & the Yen will have a true day of reckoning, sooner rather than later. There is just too much risk for me to be invested directly in Chinese companies...even HNP.

      Best of luck all.

      HNP (A.D.S.) might merely be echoing the sell-off in Hong Kong.

      Sentiment: Strong Sell

    • I can't find anything. What is more strange is the big hit it takes on the open over the last 2 days. Nothing more frustrating than seeing price changes, up or down, without an even remote reason.
