    Why don't you split your capital to buy both of them when they could not drop down anymore in this tsunami? So in the future and the worst case even one of them is in the hell, you can still feel not too bad when all of XAO cries tearfully.

    I believe it will be the time all of Aussies are in the hell financially if any one of them is in the hell. If everyone in the hell, the life in the hell is normal life. All are equal when no one has anything!

    Who can predict which would be in hell or heaven? It is the God not the genius here or there. Genius would be washed away sooner or later. Wise people should try all for what they want and leave rooms for their mistakes, shouldn't they?

    Buy two for average and enoughness(few like to do). Buy one for best result(usually not happen). Buy nothing(very popular now) since you are struggling in the hell.

    Damming! Why life is so tough to these poor traders who would be defeated in this IT great time sooner or later? Are they deserved?

    Hi Chris

    I have a preference for one over the other but it all depends on the investing method you use to buy shares.

    I use an investment method similar to that used by Warren Buffet.

    The full description of the investment method is shown on my website at the following link: Direct Share Investing - Warren Buffet Investment Method

    Kind Regards

    Hi Tropo

    Calling someone you don't know lazy is not good and I don't appreciate the comment.

    If you want to know, I like to delegate things I don't have time for.

    Kind Regards

    "Calling someone you don't know lazy is not good and I don't appreciate the comment."

    Classic...hahahahaa...
    You have got enough time to make posts here, but not enough time to read an interesting article ?
    Personally - I could not care less about appreciation of lazy people who pretend to be very busy and important!!

    "If you want to know, I like to delegate things I don't have time for."

    If you want to delegate "things", delegate them to someone else or the person who will tolerate you.
    Suggestion...under no circumstances do not try to fly, before you learn how to walk properly!!

    It is thankful to share some great thought from any articles. It is not wrong to ask more such as you own summery. If we want to share with our heart for profit not self-ignorance or -arrogance, why don't you give out your views or pondering out, of course if you like?

    We could read and ponder together if we just know we have one indirect goal, the financial independence, and direct goals to fix our own biases in the stock market.

    Don't let our irritating go too far, which will call its toll in our trading and investment. Tolerance, cooperation, compromise, and balance let us go forward. It is most important for traders since actually it is a zero-sum game. It is very difficult to let the zero-sum tilted for your long term profit.

    Sorry, Tropo, if my words irritate you too much. Please tolerate me and do hope you can get a lot of profit in a decade not a few days. If you could turn the dream become true, no words can hurt you. Never. LOL.

    So which one do you have ea preference for and why?


    I read it. It was semi-interesting.

    Personally I think capitalism will sort it out. Companies normally have a simple way of dealing with unions. They threaten to shut down the business and sack everyone - if that's a real threat negotiations proceed on terms that are good for both parties ala Qantas.

    The fact that most of the major miners have mines all over the world makes it easy for them to carry out their threat (obviously that wouldn't be their preference, but if unions get greedy that's what will happen).

    How much would you charge? Do you know it is not just to pour water over the car? Are you qualified for a sure good work? Could you send your resume out?...

    Haha.

    Based on the investment method I use, which is similar to that used by Warren Buffet, the focus is on earnings per share.

    Now one of the companies has more stable earnings - which one do you think that is?

    Cheers
