  • Five Reasons To Invest In India [View article]
    Thanks for the article. I am long INCO and INXX, and chose SMIN over SCIN. I'd be interested to hear your reasons for preferring SCIN.

  • Biotech Weekly: The XBI-IBB Performance Gap YTD And A Benchmarking Discussion [View article]
    I like your approach and the quality of your illustrations and argument. In the breadth of investment options in health/biotech/genome/... stocks, it is beyond my science knowledge and ability to do the voluminous reading to keep up with individual stocks in assessing which have and can maintain competitive advantages. Focusing, instead, on etfs seems more rewarding financially and involves less trading while better enabling me to sleep soundly. I chose XBI over IBB for its greater small-cap coverage. By investing, as well, in FBT, PBE, RYH, VHT, XHS, XLV, and XPH, I accept some overlap to gain reasonably comprehensive coverage of a field that no single etf offers.

  • Bank Of Nova Scotia Is A Safer Bet Than The Market Is Representing [View article]
    Canada's economy faces challenges, but I believe that prices for its good bank stocks fell predominantly because of unfounded investor fears. Stocks in certain countries and regions fall rapidly out of fashion and can come back into popularity just as fast. From time to time, we are advised to avoid investing in China, Russia, and emerging markets, and months later, analysts and business journalists fault investors for inadequately diversifying their portfolios to include these markets. Betting on Canada for the long term appeals to me, and I believe that Canada's bank stocks will regain and eventually exceed their former highs. I appreciate your thoughtful article. Long BMO, BNS, CM, NTIOF, RY, TD.

  • Berkshire to join euro bond craze [View news story]
    I think that you mean harsh and accurate rather than "nasty and self-serving." The truth hurts.

    I don't see anything significant in this posting that was not better stated in Buffett's letter.

  • Is India The Next China? [View article]
    Thank you for an impressively clear, perceptive, and appropriately qualified perspective of growth and hope for India's important economy. I also chose to invest in INCO as well as in INXX (infrastructure) and in SMIN (small-cap) -- areas I think will be keys to India's sustainable growth.

  • Berkshire Hathaway: High-Growth Stock? [View article]
    Thanks for a very good and perceptive article. In the eventual market correction, Buffett will be benefitting from his substantial cash holdings, huge insurance float, long-term view, and readiness to act while others hang back in fear in making Berkshire Hathaway substantially stronger with some great acquisitions.

    Not a single fact appears in this multi-statement posting. Is speculation replacing news on Seeking Alpha?

  • Why Healthcare Cost Reform Could Be The Greatest Stimulus Of All [View article]
    buyitcheap -

    A major problem in rising medical costs arises when doctors and the hospitals or practices for which they work order or promote expensive testing and procedures that are often not medically justified. If there were some way to remove government from the medical services equation, I suspect that costs would continue to rise, but patients' rights and safety might be further jeopardized.

  • Why Healthcare Cost Reform Could Be The Greatest Stimulus Of All [View article]
    You pose an interesting idea. Do you have a vision for calculating reasonable health care costs? How might we balance the prodigious time required and costs entailed in developing new drugs and research-based procedures against the need for more affordable health care?
