  • Big Trouble In Little Hong Kong? [View article]
    China has told USA to but out of the Pacific.They have a terratory dispute with every one of their neighbours, except the several they have already annexed. They have instigated no fly zones in the south china sea, and claimed terratory of other countries. They have invaded Vietnam several times since the USA/Vietnam war. Even trying to claim part of Kashmir? In addition they are investing large sums in developing a militarily capable jet engine and lowered the entry standards for the Army, thus creating Cannon Fodder. Their Military spending budget is rising by serious multiples and they are Cosying up to Putin. In addition they are now testing their new Air Craft carrier, which is a test bed for those to come. If anyone thinks that the long game planners in Behjing are ramping up to anything but war they are very very optimistic. (In my opinion, stupid as well) The Chinese have also said they will leave the UN if any judgements, like the Philiipines dispute, goes against them. My nightmare is a Russia/China Axis of evil.
    I am not selling my defence stocks as once Powder Puff Obama wakes up he is going to need to get ready.

  • Procter & Gamble: A Product Transformation Play And Increasing Dividends [View article]
    One more thing, Diamonds in the rough, I haven't heard what they are selling off yet, but they could become next years competition. I am long PG, however, it remains to be seen if they will grow going forward or just settling into a watching brief, sweating the assets and generally resintg on their laurels

    Er...... isn't Unilever a competitor? If you are looking at a worldwide company I would consider the rest of the world's competition. This is a bit like looking at GM and Ford without considering Toyota and Honda. How does Unilever's presence in overseas markets affect P&G?

    As an Insurance broker who used to work in the London Market, I personaly will not touch any insurance company who has significant casualty/liability exposure with a ten foot barge pole. There will be a need for the large cash pile in the future.

  • Which Bank Shares To Invest In: HSBC? [View article]
    I hold HSBC and SAN.I have had a good run with SAN,as just for once I got the timing right.The thing that everybody seems to discount with SAN is that they do not buy back shares. SO whenever there is a Dividend there are more shares in circulation. In addition if you do not take the SAN divi in shares you get hit by a 30% Spanish withholding tax. SO to realise the profit you need to sell. Fortunatley the spread is not great, but still dilutes the result a little. I have also had a good run with HSBC but if there is a dividend cut or a rights issue I will be long gone.

  • Santander Showing Signs Of Stability [View article]
    Slightly worried about the idea of implementing best practice in one territory across the globe. As many large organizations, and the EU have found, one size does not fit all.

  • Retirement Strategy: What I Will Do When The Market Corrects [View article]
    I faced this dilema and came up with the conclusion that as I am unable to time the market, and a drop often comes after a fall, I stay fully invested. I have been reading the next correction is coming articles for a long time now, so it is coming, but I will miss out out if I just sit on cash.

  • HSBC Has A Valuable Core Franchise, But A Lot Of Work To Do [View article]
    HSBC Hong Kong, while obviously performing well is only doing so because they are the best of a bad lot. If any of the other banks actually started to offer good customer service and products the customers, both retail and commerical, actually want the flight from HSBC would be very fast and very significant. So while I am watching HSBC and holding out for the bottom of the curve before buying more, I would dump my holding in a heartbeat if the HK isn't improved dramatically.
