  • Russia shuts down fifth McDonald's restaurant [View news story]
    It appears the chain will not be "stopped" but every store will be financially crippled until the losses far exceed the value of the assets.
    Russia and China have yet to impress me as viable business locations.

  • As They Do, Not As They Say [View article]
    I have problems understanding the future of inflation vs deflation when I look at the amount of excess reserves currently in the system and the resulting low velocity of money. Although these excess reserves are not currently affecting inflation could it be possible that they may be deployed by the banks in the future in an effort to increase their returns? If that were to happen, then the velocity of money would increase and inflation which has been sanguine suddenly rear its head quickly? What is the mechanism that insures these excess reserves are not going to be eventually used to increase business activity?

  • Venezuela reportedly will allow its state-owned energy company to form joint ventures with PetroChina (PTR) and Chevron (CVX) to manage $6B in loans designed to reverse declining oil output. Agreements have been reached on terms of a $2B credit from CVX for the Petroboscan venture and a $4B loan from China for Sinovensa. Similar deals may be in the works with Shell (RDS.A) and Repsol. [View news story]
    I would not want any company in which I have invested to do business in Venezuela. Venezuela's history is filled with examples of investments taken from foreign companies. The whole of Venezuela's oil industry is built from seized assets. Obviously these companies have not looked at the dealings of this country with respect to foreign investment. Or they somehow think they are smarter and stronger than those who have gone before.
    These investments will not turn out well.

  • Johnson & Johnson: A High Dividend, Low Risk Stock [View article]
    The concerns I have with this investment revolve around its difficulties in process control. When an operation loses process control it is not like you lost your keys, and can potentially find them in a minute. It is more like you suffered an injury that has affected your balance and can't ride a bike. After lots of physical rehabilitation you may eventually be able to ride a bike again, but it is not an overnight, or easily determined path.
