Anyone do Investing in emerging markets here? I've been burned by a few South American players, but things starting to look rosier for long term players in China

Yep, own BABA, BIDU and also own the emerging market ETF VWO....should have pulled the trigger on Tencent earlier this year but will likely initiate a position soon. Basically AMZN, FB, and GOOGL equivalents at much cheaper valuations (for a reason) but I think they're all very good long term holdings

I'm also long on BABA. I keep increasing my position

Just a word of caution on BABA. It's up 42% on the year and the P/E is north of 100....I'm in it for the next 10 years+ and my cost basis is $76 so I don't care as much but for those thinking about buying for the 1st time, you may get a better entry point

Agreed. It, along with many of the late tech players, is overinflated at the moment. I just figure if I buy a few shares every two weeks over the next 6 months, the dollar cost average should work out. Right now my cost basis is $109, which is a bit high

I'm also long on NVDA and AMD. Not Asian companies per say, but by two stellar (IMO) Asian CEOs.

?? Haha with that logic Microsoft falls into the emerging market category - who knew?!

Never understood the whole “eat the rich” thing until now. Just spoke with a FSBO seller that is charging 2.5x what he paid for the house back in December, comparables in the same complex are hundreds of thousands cheaper.

I ask if he did any value adds and what he is using to justify the price and he goes “It’s close to the river and it’s unique” As if the entire complex with the same floorplan doesn’t also have those offerings. He’s holding on to an empty property for no reason.

Because the servicer of my former 401(k) is a dinosaur, they cut a paper check and mailed it to me to roll over my account into an IRA. Of course, they liquidated my account Thursday, meaning I missed out on $17k in gains yesterday plus whatever I miss out on over the next 2-3 days it takes to get reinvested.
