Re: [sharechat] cah -- and what to buy?

If you want to make money buy good stocks that are out of favour with
everyone. CAH was one stock in 2001, although I might say "good"in this case
might be flattering. Remember 2 years ago WRI nobody touched it... reason
....bad management. Amazing now it has good management ..still has the same
type of people running it. I bought CAH in bits last year,( $1.50-$1.60)
mentioned on sharechat that 2002 could the year of the seems that
it maybe 2003. With cyclic stocks its a BIG gamble picking upturns as they
happen rarely and quickly..with many false starts, but when it happens its
huge ,e.g WRI.
CAH is a much different fish now than it was 2-3 years ago, so one can't
refer to the past results and compare with the share price
then....because....of their recent acquistions,and over extending their
financial limits,the management(Bad???? If the company fails-yes,if the
company makes huge profits-no) has gambled their business...if there is a
double dip in the paper & pulp commodity price CAH could be fatally
wounded...if the cycle turns up ...they make a fortune and the management
are heroes not zeroes.
If the NZ Herald figures are right (which I too many noughts in
the equation methinks), if the pulp & paper prices go up to the 1997 prices
CAH makes $3 billion more revenue. Remember the exchange rates were
different as our $ was alot higher then.  I am very sceptical about the $3B
but my 2001 homework did reveal that $0.5B profit (conservative?) at some
point in the near future can not be ruled out.........Hence the share price
increase some investors( there is alot of them.. 6M shares crossed
today ) can see the huge potential at the moment. Next week they might not
see it the same way and prices drop back as it has done this last year or
so.  HOWEVER..........It should be on everyones WATCHLIST......If pulp
prices keep rising upwards off the bottom of this latest cycle...expect to
see some fireworks in CAH.
Every dog has its day
