Best And Worst ADRs - Monday, May 22
2 months ago

not all ADRs are listed and the commentary therefore is very incomplete as it leaves out pink sheet ADRs which are often of very large companies which perform well.

they take longer than reading somebody's remarks and it is hard to skim. Videos also remind me of how newsletters are marketed, by holding the reader's attention by constantly delaying the details being awaited by the listener

Consider Diversifying Your Portfolio By Investing In Japan - Here's Why

why buy a fund, hedged or not to the yen, rather than a single stock with good growth of sales and profits regardless of the currency's moves?

War Is Declared - China Just Dropped The Warning Yuan
7 months ago

Overnight on Dec.6-7, there was a scary episode which showed what this might mean when the Chinese #renminbi fell sharply. It seemed like a deliberate devaluation to show Pres.-elect #Trump who controls China's exchange rate policy. But in the end, it turned out to be a fat fingers goof perpetrated Monday night by a UK money brokerage, ICAP plc. Here again we dodged a bullet, as for some years we owned the ADR, $IAPLY. But in fact the bullet dodged was by the whole world, because a deep renminbi devaluation could have caused a major international incident with the future US Administration, and a test of Trump's temper. Luckily it was just an error by markets.

how do you define services which seems to include railroads and airlines. Consumer goods runs from sneakers to autos. You did separate banks and insurance.

and while we are at it, how many pink sheet ADRs are in your universe?

Global Roundup: Roche, Vale, Novo Nordisk, Teva, Benitec Et Al
9 months ago

thanks for your reply, Mr. Hanshaw. The reason was that NVO reported good numbers but that then the new CEO also issued a warning that US profits would be lower in the 4th quarter. That took Novo down in its Danish homeland.

Then, as we all know, the FBI said it was looking into more Hillary Clinton-linked emails and the US market sold off. I was not on the job because I had to go to a cousin's funeral but I will be writing about Novo-Nordisk results and outlook on Monday when I am back at my desk.

The Bloomberg Businessweek article was about insulin used to treat children who have diabetes. The main reason I recommend Novo is that it is a specialist in other forms of insulin to treat old-adult-onset diabetes and also associated weight gain, a growth drug market not just in the US but also in many other countries which are now rich enough so people can over-eat foods that are not good for their health. The diabetes epidemic is most rapidly spreading in formerly poor countries with a taste for sweets, like Mexico, India, and even China.

So unfortunately for peoples' health but fortunately for Novo which is a specialized drug company whose products are mostly for diabetes the insulin and replacements market is growing fast.
