  • Lloyds faces £1B tax bomb  [View news story]

    Another carry over from HBoS...... and lack of any Due Dilligence.
    All they had to do was open the books and read their exposure... But no ., Brown
    and his gang had them for suckers.
    When will the stock holders take the Directors to task for not looking after their
    fiduciary rights.....only in the UK.

  • The U.K. government has reportedly attracted proposals for its stake in Lloyds (LYG), including a £10B bid from a consortium led by private-equity fund Corsair, whose senior partners include former trade minister Mervyn Davies. The group could offer to acquire up to half the state's 39% holding at somewhere around Lloyds' share price of 64.63 pence, which would ensure the government broke even on its financial-crisis bailout of the bank. Lloyd's market cap is £46.1B.  [View news story]

    And Amazon have in themselves promoted and encouraged the actual publishing and presentation of new authors and books in setting up a devision named CreatSpace that gives excellent help and service to foster both education and writing.
    I know,they have been a source of both encouragement and interest to me in just writing.
    Some day all schools will" catch on' in a big way and raise the standard of education to their pupils through ebooks and pads.

  • ING Earnings Brings Netherlands ETF Into Focus  [View article]
    With the Iceland debacle out of the way and half the bail out money returned this could be a sleeper..
    At least ING is facing the facts of its position squarely with the investors and the world to understand and see.
    Not like the banks in the UK which are still hiding their disasteres in their CEO's office and Board Rooms...hoping against hope that any recovering economy is going to answer their problems.
    Feel confident that Ing will give investors a great financial return ..the only question is WHEN?

  • Sirius XM, Naked Short Selling and Market Reform  [View article]
    Naked short trading is an abomination to true investing principles..Its nothing more than turning the market inti a casino.
    Germany banned naked short selling about six weeks ago and are going from strength to strength.
    The SEC are dragging their feet on this issue...frightened to make a decision ..
    Based on truth in fiduciary responsibility...NAKED TRADING MUST GO.

    The Russian and SWISS hedge funds have exploited the market on this point.
