  • Sell Westpac, Australia Is The Same As U.S. Or Spain A Few Years Ago [View article]
    what about the booming energy export (LNG) currently underway in Australia which is said to bring hundreds of billions of dollars to the economy? and given the relative small population of the country the impact will be huge. Australian people is the 2nd wealthiest in the world only behind Switzerland and all those people only have a handful of cities they can choose to live in not to mention the new migrants flood in from all around world every year. in the suburb I live in there is 100 people looking to buy for each listed property in the area. I really wish price can collapse so I can own a property but it never happened.

  • Investors Are Missing Apple's China Opportunity [View article]
    you are missing the point here. it is all about products not apple vs andorid or anybody else. I am an apple products user back to the apple II era. I have owned all generation of iphone except Iphone 5. I have switched to galaxy note 2 and never looked back.

  • How Much Does Apple Make? A DuPont Analysis [View article]
    if ROE is meant to calculate how much return can be generated this period based on the money equity investor has in the company should we use total shareholder's equity at beginning of the period instead of using average equity? if you have 10000 in the bank receive 1000 dollar interest during the year your return would be 1000/10000=10% not 1000/(10000+11000)/2 = 9.5% right? unless there is significant increase or decrease equity during the period.

  • The New Nokia Lumia Range Of Devices - Has Nokia Finally Reestablished Its Premium Image? [View article]
    wait until Lumia 920 hit the chinese market. the deal with China Mobile is going to be huge for nokia. People will not give up their China Mobile phone number just because iphone (unicom only) looks prettier. Last time when I took the trip to Tibet I had to buy a unicom sim because my iphone and the iphone is almost useless through out the whole trip while my local friend's china mobile phone never had any problem.

  • Catching Falling Knives With A Pillow [View article]
    hi, thanks for sharing the idea. one question: what is the reason that you do a diagonal instead of in the same calendar month? what's your plan if the stocks don't start to decline until November put options expire?

  • What China Mobile Will Do With Its $50 Billion In Cash [View article]
    The cash is reserved to be put in use when Chinese banks go bankrupt. You should exclude all cash and short term investment from balance sheet of stated owned Chinese listed companies when make your investment decision. If you are naive enough to believe the management will act in the best interest of American investors instead of the party oh well.
