    Ted,

    Thanks for taking the time to answer our questions.

    What is Mercantile's plan to stay profitable and keep margins strong considering the rise of low-cost internet banking?

    Michael,

    Your charts do indeed fit into our layout, albeit in slightly altered form (which I had unfortunately overlooked in this case - sorry). Going forward, your charts should fit in better.

  • Should One Invest in Unethical Companies? [View article]
    agreed - it's not so much whether they profit off of you - it's that through dividends and the like, you as a shareholder are profiting off of their business.

  • Sell In May and Go Away? History Says No [View article]
    SA,

    Not sure what's misleading about the title? If you read Hickey and Walters' analysis, it clearly explain why historically investors have been better off holding than selling in May, with positive gains occurring more than 60% of the time and the likelihood of significant gains more than double that of significant losses.

  • Rockwell Automation's CFO Jumps Ship, Sending Shares Lower [View article]
    The article's original title contained the word 'CEO' instead of 'CFO' - an editorial mistake on my part. Apologies to Rockwell Corp.

  • Interactive Q&A: Katie Jacobs Stanton, Product Manager of Google Finance [View article]
    In addition to the 3 already mentioned, Australia and Israel would be two other countries whose exchanges I'd love to see individual stock charts for.

  • Interactive Q&A: Katie Jacobs Stanton, Product Manager of Google Finance [View article]
    Katie,

    I use Google Finance as my first stop for all my financial research.

    I was wondering about charts for companies listed on foreign exchanges. I notice you have a decent number of the European exchanges covered as well as Canada however, as someone who is very interested in the Asian markets, that aspect of Google Finance is currently lacking. Companies listed in Tokyo, Hong Kong and Bombay would all benefit greatly from having charts directly on their stock pages, regardless of whether they also trade in the U.S. or not.

    All the best,
    Jonathan

  • New General Public License To Challenge Microsoft-Novell Linux Deal [View article]
    Dennis,

    Thank you for your comments. You are clearly more knowledgeable on this subject than I. The statements in question that you refer to are indeed from the Reuters article above. My role as author was merely to reflect Reuters reporting in as brief and accurate a form as possible. Your points above certainly add clarification and I thank you for that.
