Now that I have outperformed Scorpio in terms of cleverness and sophistication I can with good consciousness contribute to this thread. Actually, I forgot one: If he was British or Australian, he would be an avid smoker.
Gurnee is excellent. He is most likely the driving force behind the buyback and in particular the dividend. There is no way a Chinese CFO would take care of international Investors this well. Also, he is a bridge over the cultural gap. Imagine having a conference call with the chairman. A nightmare. There are stocks were Gurnee is involved that have a much higher P/E than XIN. Theory doesnt hold up.
