[sharechat] Jabba the Hut et. al.

From: RIL <>

Every time I get a paper up here you guys look more
and more like a third world colony.

So it comes as no surprise that the latest appointee
to the red cause makes Jabba the Hut look anorexic. We
now know where most of Restaurant Brand's profits have
come from. It must be of considerable concern to
investors the the appointee in question has joined
weight-watchers. Bail!

Moving right along:

Commsoft - this is a good stock and I think it will do
well. Unfortunately it is only listing on ASX so it
may be hard for NZ punters to get a look in. It will
do well if the current sky high technology stock
valuations continue.

The unusual SMR buyback strategy makes little
immediate sense unless SMR is short of cash. But then
why buy back shares?

Now an NZ export trade story for your edification. A
friend was looking into an export opportunity out of
NZ to the first world (UK). He rang the Tradenz
organisation for some information on tariffs and trade
assistance. Answer: no assistance and we'll send you
an invoice for the information if you want it although
it will take time as we don't have a database on this

Thank you very much but no thanks he said and rang the
Aussie equivalent Austrade. More than happy to assist
they said and we will give you the information free
and up to $200,000 assistance including recon. trips

So now Aussie has a new exporter and a few more jobs
with more to come.

Don't you Kiwis understand you are the most
disadvantaged player in international trade to begin
with and you still knee-cap your exporters.

Oh well, hay if I'm a Maori and I want to stop smoking
I get $19 million. 

Watching your national decline with interest from

Kind Regards
