  • PBOC cuts rates [View news story]
    Tai Yu,

    Asset inflation favors those haves and devastating for everyone else. Income inequality works as long as the "everyone else" have hope to own some of those assets. But how do you expect a salary men, say a IT engineer for Foxcon, to afford buying one of those apartments in a major Chinese city?

  • Chinese Stocks Soar: Why It Will Likely Continue Thanks To Management Led Buyouts [View article]
    plaza,

    I have been trading on MBO/LBO names for many years. Share prices are what investors are willing to pay. You can't blame the buyers for pricing the shares too low because there are other numerous reasons as: P&L transparency, risks, liquidity, uncertainty, management strength etc.

    Lastly, don't forget that MBO/LBO offers are sure money winners, Chinese or multinational names. A good percentage of the MBO/LBO falls through and most will crash afterwards other than those with higher offers. A few can be phony bids ... hence I only consider buyouts from big names and skip those with big price gap after the news.

    Good luck.

    Your chance to be called on the survey is about the same as hitting the weekly state lotto:

    The monthly Survey of Consumers is an
    ongoing nationally represen
    tative survey based
    on approximately 500 tele
    phone interviews with adult men
    and women living in households in
    the coterminous United States (48 States plus
    the District of Columbia).

    xamd,

    Don't believe NQ is legal to buyback shares before the Tack Fiori RIPO resolution. Meanwhile, $800 million to $1 billion has been amassed in Tack Fiori's books. My guess is the big boys believe that the deal is going to go through and NQ market cap will have to reflect a good portion of the Fiori capital.

    This morning, big news was on Twitter's restructure. Major reason is to increase user base and not so much emphasis on profit, which is opposite of NQ's dilemma.
