Investment Advice | 1-31-09

Here's a round up of what investment advisors are saying today:

  • Marc Faber on Asian stocks: "How you play this market depends on your time frame and objectives. If you want to build some exposure in Asia, buy high-quality companies that will survive. In Singapore, that includes Fraser & Neave, United Overseas Bank and OCBC, which is run by an American, David Conner. In Hong Kong, I like Swire Pacific and Sun Hung Kai Properties. Asian banks never understood CDOs [collateralized debt obligations], so they didn’t buy a lot… In Thailand, buy Bangkok Bankand, Glow Energy, and in India, Icici Bank and Infosys Technologies. Banks in Singapore sell for 1.3 times book. In Thailand they are below book and have relatively high dividends. If all these companies drop another 50%, which I wouldn’t rule out, buy more."
If you hear of any investment advice which you think is good, please post a comment. This roundup may be updated periodically, so keep checking back.

I am not commenting on who - if anyone - I think is right and who I think is wrong, but only summarizing what some of the top advisors are saying. In addition, you should check the links to make sure that the information contained herein is accurate, and to read any price or timing recommendations (concerning when to buy, sell, or short) of the advisors.

I am not an investment advisor and this should not be taken as investment advice.


  1. You really can't buy anything... No matter how good the company 76% of it's movement it determined by the market.

    You need a market neutral strategy now. IE, you must be at least partially short.

  2. All stocks are only worth what people are willing to pay for them. When the global economy collapses and people have to focus on real needs such as food and water, who is going to pay one cent for a stock?
