Business: Chinese Investment In North America – Infographic

Amid the global economic slowdown, 2012 has shaped up to be a healthy year for Chinese investment abroad. But not everyone is welcoming Chinese investment. In North America, state-owned enterprises (SOE), national security, market access reciprocity, and regulatory transparency are all issues to have plagued Chinese deals in recent times. But given China’s investment interest in the region, relative to other countries, are these concerns justified? As a virtual data room provider used to facilitate financial transactions, Firmex takes a great interest in deals and trends in the M&A space. Their latest Infographic takes a closer look at China’s investment abroad, and where they really rank in the North American market. And you might be surprised by the findings.

Warren Buffett Rebuffs Gold – Does nothing for any Economy

Warren Buffett hit the nail on the head. Gold is a useless investment. It just does nothing for anyone and does not produce anything. If everyone would invest in gold rather than in the economy, we all would still throw stones at each other.

Do you trust Goldman? Is it good for Facebook to be involved?

This morning I had a real interesting conversation. A friend called me and wanted to talk about his portfolio. While we were doing so, he came up with a few new companies he wanted to take a look at. When he mentioned them, I thought yes, those might be good choices for an investment. While talking, he brought up something I have heard before, but didn’t really took too serious. He stated, “there is too much Goldman opinion in the analyst’s view”. I asked, what he means by that and the answer is, while not entirely new, kinda interesting: “If Goldman comes up with an Analyst opinion or recommendation, you must do the opposite or stay away”.
