  • Oh Là Là! Looking For Dividend Yield? Explore France [View article]
    Uncle Pie is it not true that foreign ETFs listed in the US are bought and sold in US dollars and the dividends listed at Yahoo finance are the dividend received by the investor?

  • Oh Là Là! Looking For Dividend Yield? Explore France [View article]
    I was just comparing all the major European indexes that we can buy easily here in the US (FEZ, VGK. EWU, etc.) and their per performance is over the last year is very similar. So I guess the real question is "do you believe that and investment in Europe will grow, stagnate or continue falling?".

    Yiwen Nni do you not think that a diversified fund like EWQ is insulated from a strike against one or the other companies that might be in the portfolio?

  • Unveiling Herbalife's Earnings Disaster Shows The Pyramid In Collapse [View article]
    Rich G - what you say is the crux of the problem, the regulators don't always regulate. Herbalife and Amway should both have been declared pyramid schemes and shut down looooooong ago - so why haven't they? In my humble opinion the people at the top of the pyramid, the ones with money have greased the palms of the regulators directly or indirectly (such as members of Congress, etc.) and are virtually untouchable. You notice that the MLM schemes that get shut down are the smaller ones who probably can't afford to pay for the necessary influence those that count.
    I would not "hold my breath" waiting for FTC or any regulatory arm of the Government to address Herbalife or Amway in any meaningful decision.

  • Exxon: Please Lord, Don't Buy BP [View article]
    Hate it when a thread has a reference to Buffett BUT from
    Yahoo Financial:

    Buffett's Berkshire jettisons Exxon stake, filings show.
    - Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway Inc. eliminated its holding in Exxon Mobil Corp., exiting a $3.7 billion investment in the world’s largest energy company as oil prices fell.
    Berkshire had no holding in the Exxon as of Dec. 31, according to a regulatory filing Tuesday from Buffett’s Omaha, Nebraska-based company detailing its U.S. stock portfolio. That compares with about 41 million shares three months earlier. Berkshire also increased its investment in agricultural equipment maker Deere & Co. and disclosed a stake in 21st Century Fox Inc.

  • A Global Yield Comparison [View article]
    @thomaswhite I remember when the Chinese were complaining about the US debt they owned because of the weak dollar but now the dollar is the strongest currency in the world so why are the Treasuries worthless?

  • Baccarat profit dries up in Las Vegas [View news story]
    Great tale Howard, thanks.
    When I was younger and traveled I visited the casinos in Baden Baden, Germany and in Monte Carlo. I had read that the experience was quite different from LV and it was, no Levis and cowboy boots in those casinos. Baden Baden was so quiet you would have thought it was a science fair.
    Give me the noise and glitter of Las Vegas.

    robgra, how does that work? IMHO federal funding would even the playing field and maybe allow third party candidates. No Party would have the purse strings as there would be a mandate of equal funds to candidates. The real trick is to deny the evil RNC and DNC any federal funds or influence.
