My crazy Trump play? Russian small caps ETF RSXJ November 9, 2016Posted by deminvest in growth stock, investment, Russia, Single stocks, Small Cal, Small Cap, stocks.

Trump will probably stop sanctions to Russia. Europe will follow.
Time to invest in the Eastern Superpower.
My play is on small caps, because anything else in Russia is an oil investment.
Too bad I won’t get dividends on that stuff.

I don’t care if Google was kicked out of China. Google still is a fast growing company, which is doing great now and which will do terrific if companies get back on advertising spending as the economy picks up.
Google is growing Revenue up 23% year on year, Earnings up 37%, has 26B cash, about 15% of its market cap.
Hate Ketchup, but love Heinz’s fat dividends! I’m buying 23 HNZ shares in 5 minutes December 29, 2009Posted by deminvest in Defensive Stock, Heinz, HNZ, investment, Single stocks, stock I own, stocks, stocks that pay high dividends.

Heinz yields 3.9 % dividends. I can hardly resist such juicy dividends, considering that, according to Yahoo finance:
- HNZ has a honest 16 P/E ratio.
- HNZ is supposed to grow its earnings. Next year P/E is supposed to go to 14. (more…)
I’m buying $1000 worth of Blackstone (BX) in 5 minutes November 19, 2009Posted by deminvest in Blackstone, BX, growth stock, investment, investment strategies, Single stocks, stock I own, stocks, stocks that pay high dividends.
Blackstone is a huge Private Equity fund.
They manage more than $ 90 Billion. Hopefully they manage that sum well. The company earns managements fees even if the value of assets they manage gos down. Forward P/E ratio is a reasonable 15. Main reasons why I buy BX is the fact the middlemen usually gain even if things go badly, the fact that if things go well they gain even more. Last but not least:
- Huge dividend yield: 8%
- Grrowing dividend yield: last year was just 6%
Growing dividends in a sinking economy looks nice. I bet that Blackstone’s managing fees will go up if the Economy continues it current recovery.

It is surprising how stupid the Internet is sometimes. There is no way to find simple informations, like basic data for stocks traded on itnternational markets.
I don’t want much, just a place where I can find P/E ratio, dividends, debts earning growth and sales growth for companies traded all over the World.
So far there is no such website. Google finanace doesn’t give decent data outside USA. On yahoo finance you canfind something only if you start digging into places like yahoo. fr yahoo.it yahoo.es or yahoo.de, but you need some understanding of foreign languages. The real disaster is when you need data about Japaneese, Russian or Chinese comanies. Then you’re lost into ideograms with no hope of understanding. Anyway yahoo finance usually has very little data even on its internatrional portals.
The best place I found so far is msn . I could find some data on msn.es, msn.fr … and so on. At least I could spot p/e and dividends. The problem of ideograms is still there, but I don’t think there is anything better than msn available
I sold 70 Vance Info (VIT) shares today: they’re 40% up since I bought them in May 2008 June 30, 2009Posted by deminvest in growth stock, India Investing, investment, my free stock, nasdaq, Nasdaq stock, Single stocks, stock I own, stocks, VanceInfo Technologies, VIT.

VanceInfo Technologies is a Chinese software house.
A year ago I bought VIT because it was Chinese largest software house. I considered that fact as a great advantage over Indian software houses, which ended up losing more than half of their value in a year . Maybe I was right (link). Maybe I was just lucky to hit a well managed software house.
Yesterday Tjey, one of my 3 or 4 readers, asked me: “[…] if you suggest book for novice trader what book would suggest to read and why”
First reason why It is hard to me to suggest such a book is simple: I never read a book about trading. I’m actually not a trader. All I do is:
- read finance.yahoo.com everyday,
- check my portfolio loaded on finance.google.com which gives news about shares I own,
- read articles about Economics in regular newspapers
- distrust financial gurus, economists, politicians, central banks, CEOs, bloggers, funds, whoever charges commissions, myself
- think with my own head, knowing there great chances I’m wrong
- buy $ 1000 worth of stocks every month and (more…)

Google, Amazon, IBM and Ebay will probably have advantages in a “Cloud Economics” scenario.
Microsoft and maybe Apple could be damaged.

A little bit late, but with all my courage, yesterday I placed my February buy order on Procter & Gamble (PG) March 20, 2009Posted by deminvest in Defensive Stock, investment, PG, Procter & Gamble, risky investments, Single stocks, stock I own, stocks, stocks that pay high dividends.

Yesterday I bought 22 PG shares at $ 46.79 each, spending a total amount of $ 1029.38. It is a risky time to buy stocks, but I go on with my strategy.
As I wrote Procter and Gamble offers good dividends and its products are simply what the World buys every week in Supermarkets.
Let’s hope this crisis ends soon. I’m betting that:
- P&G won’t fall much further, even if this crisis goes on
- PG shares will skyrocket as the economy restarts its growing
Amazing… three weeks ago I wrote that Meli was my worse move ever.
Today I hit my 40% up target, got my invested money back and kept my remaining Mercadolibre shares as free stock.
This is what happened:
