    QRE - BetaShares S&P/ASX 200 Resources Sector ETF

    Added to the SMSF this week, Resources are clearly out of favour (maybe the best time to buy?) but for a long term hold this low cost ETF gives a bit of everything in the sector which at some stage will come back to life, in the mean time a decent yield and with everything priced in $US a...

    MPL - Medibank Private

    Re: MPL - Medibank Private IPO But you can sell them (well from my understanding from talking to Commsec :confused: ), its on a deferred basis and you get the price they are trading at when you do sell, so on day one you could have sold at around $2-20 when they started trading, its just...

    Re: MPL - Medibank Private IPO So how come so many seem to be changing hands? From my understanding from a phone call yesterday to CommSec, im sure they said i could sell them but the trade wont settle until Dec 5th as they are trading on a deferred basis. You have to call the broker...

    MPL - Medibank Private

    Re: MPL - Medibank Private IPO Yes, me too, I looked in my account and was like, what the heck! Think it’s the scale back, I applied for the full $5K and they have sent back $296, so I am getting $4704 worth at whatever the price is. My guess is Comsec had a dollar amount to offer to clients...

    Broker/adviser, or do it myself?

    :2twocents You can go down 3 paths, you learn, learn, learn and no doubt make a few mistakes along the way or 2, you use a respected and trustworthy financial advisor or thirdly, use low cost ETF and either just monitor them or leave your money there for a few years as you learn all about...

    PAF - PM Capital Asian Opportunities Fund

    Added to the SMSF this week, well down from its float price of $1 a few months ago and sitting mainly in cash as it slowly builds a portfolio, next to no exposure to the Aussie Dollar, surely that’s done well? They recommend a 5 to 7 year investment timeframe that suits me:D

    Listed investment Company Directors, what do they do?

    Either me being overly sceptical and thinking this is a bit of a gravy train, or are these posts really justified and add value to company’s, seems there are more than a few people making a VERY good living from being on the board of multiple LIC,s. Noticed just today with Wilson funds (ASX...
