  • The perennial question? Given the all talk no action Federal Reserve and the continually evolving medical industry any thoughts on which of the three are a better choice if the priorities are first capital preservation, second yield and third return.

  • Anybody have any information on how regulatory changes in Australia might impact ANZ's expansion into Asia? Whether they might have to divest and sell off that part of the business and what the impact on the stock might be?

    Hi of the things that has kept me from buying any Chinese stocks goes back about a year ago when the SEC demanded audited accounting reports from the Accounting firms the Chinese companies were working with. And basically the Accounting firms told the SEC they couldn't provide the information because these reports were considered "state secrets". The SEC seemed to take the position that either the firms provide the required accounting information or be de-listed. Since then I've been waiting for something to happen. Do you have any insight into this?

    I'm also in the retirement camp. I owned PPL for a while and sold all my shares last year. Any concerns about all this talk about electricity usage going down, the impact of solar and wind and just the general trend of an industry that on one level seems to be struggling and looking to scale up in order to survive? The sub-text of all this is how safe are the dividends in the long term?

  • As much as I'd love to buy this stock I just don't see much in the way of new product either from Honda or Acura that is compelling enough to lift this stock to $40 or more. Though Honda sometimes confounds its many critics on the styling/performance front their many recent failures including the ZDX, ILX and RDX on the Acura side and CRZ and Crosstour among others on the Honda side seem to highlight a company more interested in telling consumers what they should want to drive then listening to what people say really want to own. Any thoughts?

    Its been curious to watch the sudden run up over the last few days. Anybody think its going anywhere or is it a pump and dump with prices settling back to $40 with the usual people (us) holding the bag?

    What do you expect from extortionists who have no respect for the law themselves?

    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.
