  • Bancolombia: Buy This Fast-Growing Bank At 5-Year Lows [View article]
    Ian, Thanks for the excellent article and the engrossing stream of comments that it generated. Well done.

    --> "As for me, I'm DCAing... not in Bancolombia per say, but by buying into companies in various country's whose currencies have fallen sharply against the dollar. "

    You mentioned that you are building a portfolio of foreign stocks. I would love to hear some other ideas. Thanks in advance!

  • Effects Of Withholding Rates And Foreign Tax Credit Structures [View article]
    Well it is not that simple. You can't claim all the withheld taxes. Suppose more than $600 were withheld by the foreign country on dividends paid. Then you need to file Form 1116 which is quite complex and you don't get to claim a credit for all taxes withheld.

  • Northstar Realty Finance: A 9% Dividend Gem That Long-Term Income Investors Need To Consider [View article]
    Thanks for the article. You wrote "lose money from the Federal...". I think it should be loose money.

    Also, what is the difference between mREIT and REIT? And how is NRF different from NNN or O or WPC?

  • Why Grexit Is Beneficial To Greece But Will Not Happen [View article]
    Thanks for your views. I understand that no-one knows what will happen :-) To me it appeared that this time Greece will indeed default and euro will fall in value (whether for 1 month or 1 year, no ideas).

  • Why Grexit Is Beneficial To Greece But Will Not Happen [View article]
    What do you think of a possible exit now? The rhetoric is increasing every day and especially with the failure of the latest talks in Brussels. Any opinions about a possible debt default by early March?
