spank ham it may console you to know i have had the same experience with our mates at that particular establishment. that was when i first started out, at least its made me a little more discerning about who i listen to, and more importantly to be critical of everything i hear :)
i used to pay a lot of attention to our notorious newsletter but disregard it these days, i think it had a good run while things were coasting along but IMHO its shortcomings have become evident lately (regardless of wider market negativity).
i bought in at ~$22 before the share split, current price equivalent would of course be ~$2.20.
i can solely thank charlie aitken for starting me on the research path to that purchase, the man has a rare degree of insight and clarity of thought that i find rare in our mainstream media...
