    Hey thanks for the reply, I'm thinking Long Term BofA, Conoco, Apple, Short term TSLA, TM
    I'm originally from Venezuela and currently my holdings there are producing more than my UBS resource management account even though they're literally 10 times smaller, not only that, but because the official Xrate is absurdly low, when I buy U.S. $$ on the grey market it ends up working out in my favour at a rate of ~ 30-50+% depending on the source

    B & A - not bad, consider JPM or MS as well as WFC
    TSLA and TM - TSLA is a dog, I think. I took a look at TM a while back, split my position with F and VLKAY (Ford and Volkswagen) instead. I wouldnt go with 2 car companies unless you have a lot of stocks. Also, fuel company + car company not very diversified.

    Consider a cyclical like K or PG. V even.

    Also, WY is a good play on a housing rebound. CTAS is a good play on the jobs recovery.

    Yeah but fuel co + electric car company (tsla) should be neg correlation. also tm is pretty dependent on hybrid sales.

    Any particular reason you prefer F? I was just looking at the stats. It is low compared to historical (positive) and has been quite stable for last 4m or so. I have looked at some of their upcoming models that I think could sell well..

    I was thinking that with current price of aapl some derrivs could be a more accessible option for those that don't have the change to get much aapl stock?

    Also anyone have anythoughts on STD, BBVA and TEF, I think they are extremely undervalued because of the current situation in Spain, (which I believe will recover with the new popular party technocratic style center right gov in power); without considering the HUGE presence these have in latin america.

    idnfl think that windows 8 will work out well this year so MSFT might also be a wise buy at this point in time

    Doh, good point. Anyway, Tesla is quite unstable still. Thats my reason. TM is not a bad play, just trades at a PE of 59 which is huge. I'd take it over Tesla for sure. I like F because its just so cheap. Its a slow grower though, thats for sure. I think its the best of American car companies. I chose the 2 I think will do best.

    AAPL derivatives are very volatile. Its a way to play the stock for sure and a worthy play.



    I own STD options and BBVA shares. TEF is a dog, me thinks. If you want to go EU banks, DB, CS, UBS are much more stable. STD probably has more movement in it. BBVA is slow moving.

    I'm making choices in relation to other stuff I own, so its not always a best of breed or growth play, one reason I went for F is because I had too many growth plays at the time.

    It might offend the sensibilities of the clothing lovers on the fora but seriously considering KORS on the recent pullback
