  • I had hoped that Vanguard Funds including their ETFs were not the targets of the usual thieves responsible for manipulating stock prices. Watching VGK over the last few days as it jumps up and down from $59.20 to $59.75 day after day.....I can't even imagine whats really going on behind the scenes.

    Interesting idea, makes sense, in America's interest....obviously you'll never be in government nor will it ever be policy.

    I took a small position in VCLT today and own two other Vanguard ETFs. I was drawn to them for a number of reasons one of which was my erroneous belief that they were not subject to the same level of manipulation as other stocks. If you've read Dark Pools, and watch VCLT, VGK, BLV among others you can pretty clearly see the pattern. I suspect what you saw a few weeks ago was part of that same game.

    I'm thinking about starting a position in Telecom in the Pacific. I'm undecided between SingTel, Telstra or New Zealand Tel. My focus is dividends and some capital accumulation. Do you think Telstra is the best of the three?

    I have Time Deposits in both countries. In NZ I get 5.15% on a 5 year TD and Australia I seem to be only able to buy TDs of one year or less but I can still get 3.5% on 4-6 month terms. All this is down from the peak 5 years ago of 6.25%+ interest rates. I'm curious, on my $AU Time Deposits I pay the 10% non-resident withholding tax on my $NZ TDs I have no withholding at all. Are you NZT dividends subject to withholding tax.
    I've done pretty well with Australian Bank bonds and stocks, telecom will be a new area for me.
    I'm sure hoping you're wrong about the Hillary Clinton. Four years of no accomplishments, disaster after disaster in terms of failed policy and the usual Clintonesque corruption. But to be honest and I don't know maybe Romney would have been good....but I don't see any leaders or politicians that are capable of turning around this hollowed out train wreck that America has become.
