We might whinge about our institutions but at the moment we are travelling through the balkan region and i can tell you aussie is worlds ahead. This place still has a big hangover from the communist days and if you want corruption and poor customer relations just come here. The people and and places are wonderful but the way they are run leaves a lot to be desired. Just like the attendant that walks out of his booth at a border crossing and doesnt come back for nearly 15 minutes and just leaves a heap of vehicles waiting in line , then when he does come back he lights up a smoke first. Ours are worlds ahead, cheers mrbear.

Good old reliable banks charging the dead fees,at least they don't complain.

I couldn't care less who they charge as long as they remain profitable and pay out divs.

Half the fools in the country think they can do without banks,but I can see a lot of bleating as these people try to borrow money in the future and the banks will not hand it out as easily.

Maybe they would be happy if the banks and the country go bankrupt,they of course will still get their welfare check (they think )every fortnight.

I have had this conversation with a few welfare friends and to be honest I could not believe how dumb they really are.

They cannot comprehend that someone like me has to pay a heap of tax so the government can pay it to them.maybe they think they just print more of the stuff when it gets in short supply,cheers mrbear

The reasoning is simple early birds that a stock at it's all time low always rises providing the company is not a dog falling into the abyss and tls is not in this category yet so really you can bet with comparative safety a minimum 10-15% profit over the next couple of months,cheers mrbear

The reason early birds is 2.55 was the all time low so anything below that is a fairly safe bet.

It's only the banks being taxed again by the government and of course the joe average will be the ones that pay.

If the bank did such a horrible thing multiple times why is none of the multi million dollar a year employees facing jail time,i just see it as a cash grab and everything will be hunky dory and all the bigwigs will still get their multimillion dollar salaries ,cheers mrbear

The banking commission means nothing but a lot of smoke and drivel.

The core of the whole thing is that they are profitable and in the foreseeable future nothing will change,not like tls that is in a downward spiral of profit and div payouts.

Most traders I know treat this as a opportunity to add more, no different to bhp a short time ago when it was on the nose sharp players bought more and have been adding as it has risen and does not seem anywhere near its peak yet,cheers mrbear

Plenty of fissures already there as what i observe when i am there is blacks hate whites and the opposite as a rule. A lot try to sugar coat over it but the rule generally applies,we all know there are exceptions as i have talked to many moderate americans from both sides and trump calls it plain and simple as a rule. You either love or hate his style and here in europe all we see is what trumpy is saying and many say he is an idiot with a big mouth,maybe right but the north korean idiot is never criticised for all the drivel that sprouts from his mouth and actions from missle launches,etc,bears dont really care as i have no imput so whatever happens will happen,cheers mrbear

Dumped this dog today for 4.20,cost 5.17 less div no profit here and bought more wbc which is what I was going to do in the first place when I had this stupid thought to buy tls as I had not owned them for a long time and had a brain snap and bought them.

I find it good every now and then to get your backside kicked and it brings you back to reality to stick to what makes you money even though only a part percentage of the total a good lesson,pissed off dumb bears but everyone should buy into them as they are bound to make a new high now ,cheers mrbear

Hi wolver,the first time i have been brain dead enough to buy telsta for years and the dog has a profit downgrade.
I flipped the coin between westpac and telstra and thought maybe you have too much in banking but the throw was bad lucky only 1.5 percent of the total portfolio.

We all know the prices will correct themselves as they always do but when is the big question though I myself sold our residential properties ,the last one in 2010 and I only have industrial left.

I always play the odds and when you make 700% profit in 17 years time to exit and will never happen again,at least not in my lifetime.

Myself I don't like Telstra,used to trade them a lot when they were sub 3 bucks and would have made a killing if I just held them to the 5 buck level.

The business was the major player in telecommunications in aussie but now the nbn is the owner and Telstra is the same level as optus,etc so I cannot see where the pots of gold are going to come from to keep the share price rising,cheers mrbear

I would be very surprised if wollies sunk to these levels as they are disposing of the masters disaster and sure there will be a lot of red ink.

The market always looks to the future and sees any possible bright side as a reason to buy,not that I would buy just as I sold wesfarmers before they went exdiv and bought bendigo as I don't like their outlook though in hindsight I should have got the div and then sold and bought ben cum div,such is life,cheers mrbear

Hi early birds , when to buy and sell is always hard but here in brisbane the housing market is pretty stagnant. We sold our investment properties in 2010 and one returned 750% in 16 years profit and i play odds and those results will never happen again in my lifetime.
We invested the returns in the share market and have had great results , much better than if we left it in property and when the bulk of the baby boomers start to retire they will want to sell the investment properties to generate an income to live on , who is going to buy them , the young have no money and when interest rates start to rise it will make it harder.
Better to have fun than worry about investments.
The weather in brighton , england is a bit grey here today but still having a great time , cheers mrbear

After the 2008 crash history has proved that another one has never happened after a short time frame and this one is going to be no different and the banking sector will continue to ream the majority of the population for the foreseeable future and pay good divs and until the government change the rules they are all going to increase and I will be one that rides the wave to prosperity while many sit on the sidelines,cold hard facts,cheers mrbear

I have been there a few times over the last 5 years and it does have to be seen to be understood.
I went on a train from Tengu to Tianjin and over the 40 km journey there is unbroken heavy industry as far as the eye could see.
There was steel mills galore and a lot were rolling 150 thick steel plate,in this country bhp in its heyday would maybe have rolled a couple of sheets a year for the whole of aussie.
I have learned that all the figures cannot be trusted as gospel though as no one can deny that they are expanding at a mind blowing speed but how much is on borrowed money and on "real" money,time will tell,cheers mrbear

I should not laugh out loud I know but I have been doing this for a long time and to my memory NOT once have I read that we should be buying stock.
Why haven't we fallen into the financial abyss long ago and why are we having the usual downturn at this moment,because that is how the market works and while the companies we buy make good profits there is nothing to worry about,happy trails mrbear

Hi carsha,l myself cannot understand what drives people like buffet. He has made an enormous amount of money but to what end. I have no ambition to be like him at all,l am quite happy doing what i do now which is very little and loving it. Buffet has to turn up at the office whereas i can do whatever my heart desires and we bears cannot spend what i make eash year so i dont need to do any more,friends of mine do intensive trading yet they do not need the money,i think it is because they are bored or like the challenge ,cheers from china mrbear

The problem mookie is we are not really in a bull market.
We are just in a gradual recovery market after one of the most severe corrections on record.
A lot of people are looking for a crash but historically this does not happen after such an event.
A lot will say things are different this time but why I say,commodities had a huge run and are going though a correction ,housing will follow but on average our companies are making heaps and paying good divs.
Japan tomorrow for a few weeks hope the market doesn't crash while I'm away,cheers mrbear

Hi early birds,yes the yield of bhp,rio is good but I think their divs will be reduced with the falling commodity prices.
I own all the major banks though my biggest holding is cba though last week I reduced my holding in ben and bought more boq after their fall post announcement.
I thought it looked pretty good and as of this date has proved a good move though time will tell.
Big day today and more of the same over easter, I don't know if this little bear will survive it but what a way to go,catching up with big family parties,drinking too much and giving the grandbear cubs too much chocolate,tough life ,cheers mrbear

The thing I cant understand early birds is why would a fund manager tie up funds in a sector that is out of favor as much as resources are at the moment when you can have them in the financial sector that is having good returns and shows no sign of stopping in the near future.
I can remember bhp at 9bucks though and I did not buy into them till later in the cycle,hindsight,cheers mrbear

I think the Australian gov really believes in free trade and that it exists everywhere else in the world.
Hard facts are everyone laughs at our stupidity while they do the exact opposite,china and the usa are some of the worst offenders while making a lot of noise about everyone else doing the right thing,lambs to the slaughter comes to mind.
Go to china and try and start your own business or buy land freehold and see what happens,they do it all the time here and unless it is some huge figure involved our gov does not care.
When at some point in time we realize that we own so little of our country it will be too late and most of the food,minerals,etc will be sent offshore while we go without or pay huge prices,cheers mrbear

The problem is most amateur traders/investors ride a dog to the bottom but sell good stock too early.
If you were riding cba from the $5 start and adding on the way and collecting divs as well work out the math though there will be a time when it will be advisable to sell but not yet.
So simple but most people complicate it too much but the numbers in the account don't lie and as long as your tax bill is greater than the average wage you are doing above average,cheers mrbear

I do not think this company fair though,past histories tend to repeat themselves.

No crash in equities for a long time,correct me if I'm wrong it happened in 2008 and we are still recovering from it.
Some of us dumb arse traders could see the impending doom before the correction and sold.
Some of us sold property in the 2010 and bought banks and the end result is the tax man loves us and tears us a new ring,such is life.
The end result is that the figures in the accounts are much bigger than if we stayed in cash,and some days (like today) are just unexpected),cheers mrbear

Hopefully that will be right crooky,who really knows but for sure oil will not go away as a commodity in the near future and senex does not have large debt whereas santos is sagging under it's debt and I know which company I would like to hold.
Tomorrow maybe 25c or 35c but a quick trade if it hit 37 would be nice,but it doesn't really matter as I have done this for a long time and the odds of a trade like this paying off over 6 months is better than 80%,sure beats betting on the horses,cheers mrbear

If you had the balls to invest in all the small resource stocks that have been hammered of late you will either come out rich or broke,hard to say.
Bc might be worth buying at these levels if they don't go broke though I suspect rio or bhp are deliberately trying to send them broke by ramping up production to sell at a loss but I do know their mines won't stop producing over the long term and I am sure the larger companies are circling,cheers mrbear

Still all doom and gloom barra,tell me how do you ever make any money from the stockmarket if you do not invest in in and just sit on the sideline waiting for the falls but still to scared to invest.
As you can see all the stock I said is from solid companies that if the sky fell in tomorrow I would be happy to hold for a long time .
Yes our banks do make a lot of money simply because they price gouge most peoples anus out but not mine as I pay no fees nor borrow money and of course I realize that if everyone was like me there would be no profit but luckily they are not and from what I see they are borrowing more plastic money.
We also have the super driver as all that super money that the employers have to pay has to go to a home and everyone knows there is only gold,cash,property,or shares to invest in so limited market.
I am lucky as I don't care anyway as I don't work just fish,travel,playup etc and whatever happens barring a nueclear holocaust will not worry me and the other 1% of Australia,cheers mrbear

Ahh,all this doom and gloom yet this little bear has never seen his account so high ,record territory for sure.
Everyone worries about the us market too much,and yes I know if it collapses our market will not be impressed but historically the charts show this is unlikely after the fall of 08 the market recovery takes time though their market recovered it's losses very quickly it is not in the blue sky range yet and our good solid market is just purring along nicely with good profits from our companies and a slow steady recovery just what bears like.
I would only start to worry if our market started to boom too quickly and reach ahead of itself but that is not happening at this time.
I even bought some more cba just before div time and it is already well ahead of the buyprice not counting the div.
All the stuff dreams are made of,though I do not own many species ,only blue chip banks,wes and apa for the bulk,cheers mrbear

I have long since stopped trying to figure out why they rise and fall but I do know that when a company is on a roll and keep making increasing profit and divs the share price always heads up over time.
I even added some more last Friday as well as some of the other banks,cheers mrbear

There is always a time to sell stock wantmore,when it starts to go euphoric and you can always buy them back at a lower price.

Cash sure is not king at the moment in this market in oz.
Here we are in a poor part of the yearly cycle and even with all the negative overseas news our poor old market just shrugs it all off and even though people are still nervous they are not heading off to the bomb shelters but cautiously buying,happy bears,cheers mrbear

Hi joules,do you think if you accidentally hit the wrong price on an order and it was filled they would cancel your trade and give you money back if you lost,dont think so yet that is what happened but to a larger company that obviously has some pull not a private trader,cheers mrbear

I use comsec and I know about the orderly bit but if I put an order in at market and there is enough buyers to cover it the order should be filled.
As a private trader you are always behind the eight ball,years ago you might remember brambles opened at a great discount of $28 opposed to being $44 at trade the day before and promptly went back to $44 well I was one of the traders that had my order filled at $28 and thought,great,soon comsec rang and said they had cancelled all the opening trades and I could buy them at the market price then as a trader from some other broker had accidentally hit the wrong keys and was a mistake.
They then proceeded to withdraw that money and send me a confirmation order in the ensuing days at the lower price yet I did not own the shares and after a short phone call they gave the money back.
I did ask the question though that would you have forgiven me if I accidentally hit the wrong keys and refund any money I lose and of course no was the answer but I kept the certificate as a momento,cheers mrbear

Hi arty,trying to find out how the orders are filled is very difficult.
When you sell or buy a large stock,no worries but once I wanted to sell some dtl from memory a few years at market and I was going away for the weekend so I did not want the trade in limbo yet my orders did not appear on the screen nor was it filled so I rang them and their response was that the depth on the screen meant I would have driven the price down about 5% and I did not care about that but they said they would wait until enough orders appeared on the screen to fill the order at a higher price with no guarantee it would be filled on Friday.
The end result was my order was filled at the higher price so some person paid more for the stock than they should have so it certainly is manipulated to some degree,cheers mrbear

The truth is our market is slighty below long term value and the US is above,no need to go over a million figures,the market responds to greed and fear,never the truth.

Simplistic I know but the truth and if you worry about the right time you will never make money,just be a sideliner.

People are nervous and caution is needed but holding good solid div payers and profit makers is a sure fire way to make money,with a few gamblers for fun,cheers mrbear

The trouble is balance that when you listen to these brilliant people re ,joyce, you think they are superman and their wages certainly fit that classification but deep down they are nothing but vain schmucks who couldn't run a hot dog stand.

Their employees hate him and as the figures show he does not appear to be doing a good job ,though I am sure he will get a wage rise next year.

I admit I don't buy airlines or insurance companies but if they go low enough maybe it could be tempting,cheers mrbear

Ironic how we all have different views on the same subject.

I see our market as slightly below long term averages and most of our companies are making and paying good if not outstanding dividends compared to the rest of the world.

I see America as overvalued with minimal div payouts and our property market as massively overvalued and the media desperately trying to push it up yet the cold hard facts that in the next 10 years baby boomers that hold the bulk of investment property are going to be selling them for retirement and who is going to buy them until we die and our children inherit our wealth which will not happen for a few years yet,happy trails,cheers mrbear

Not a hope in hell,just a simple pullback after a stellar run.

The asx is undervalued to the majority of sharemarkets around the world our companies pay enormous dividends and make enormous profits overall not a worry in the world particularly when you compare it to the usa which has had a run to be believed yet their companies are making little profit.

I would be the first to admit a bubble collapse of the usa would affect our market but not over the longer term as our fundamentals are intact,happy trails mrbear ps we even managed to get rid of scott driscoll our state member today life is good

Alonso,sold my holding today.

I have been watching them for a while and they seem to be drifting down so I took profit today,not a bad company but just a slow bear at the moment,my costs are 60 odd cents base allowing for the split as I have held these for a few years and I sold half the holding when they were at 16 bucks before the split but as hindsight would have I was concerned at the capital tax bill for the year,should have sold them all of course,cheers mrbear ps bought wbc with the capital just before close

I don't want a weak aus dollar and all the self funded retirees I know want it a lot stronger so we can holiday overseas more.

We see Australia as a big mine and precious little else as all the manufacturing businesses close or start importing from china to survive,we say lower the dole,pay out less and stop taking it out of our pockets so us old boomers can spend more and look on the bright side that when we die we will transfer an enormous amount to our children to spend,should keep the country ticking for years,cheers mrbear

Kahuna I am pretty dumb I know but even old bears were smart enough to get out of the market before the correction ,my only mistake was to start buying in at 4200 points but I was lucky enough to make good profit and I sold all my residential property in 2010 before the correction we are having now,my statements can be verified from previous posts.

Sounds like a case of figjam I know but I don't really care as I have enough money to not work and travel the world as we like and I figure if an old dumb bear like me can do it ,it cannot be that hard but I admit to being jealous of your typing skills as I am an old 2 finger man and even my granddaughter runs rings around me,cheers mrbear

When you worry too much about what could happen you would never set foot outside your house.

Money is no different,save it in the bank and get pitiful interest and pay tax and in the long term inflation eats it up.

My view which is worth nothing is that we had the biggest rise and collapse in the sharemarket for many years,history shows the recovery takes time which is the phase we are in now and a crash is highly unlikely in the foreseeable future.

Housing had the biggest rise in living memory and we are going through the correction now and most probably will continue for quite a few years yet barring a few bursts here and there.

History shows that he who has no balls and sits on the sideline forever gets nowhere,i know some do crash and burn but most survive and prosper,like we bears,cheers mrbear

Yes chips and chrisps damn stupid I recon.

When I was in the usa we went to subway and they had a special on a footlong and chips but you received a packet of silly packet chips ,bears are pretty dumb as when I looked over the counter there was no deep fryer in sight.

We aussies call them a packet of chips or a portion of chips,seems even sillier,though in the usa they have never heard of sweet chilli ,plenty of ordinary hot stuff but I could not find any in the supermarkets yet I found vegemite in an odd one,cheers mrbear
