Chinese stocks anyone? I got some GSI earlier. How about these? I believe CHLN and YZC are state owned.

CHLN, YZC, ACH, EJ, YGE, CHTL.OB, and LDK while FXI is an ETF fund.

Sold my RODM on Thursday and Friday realizing a very nice profit. Spent some of the profit buying QGP. Very speculative but looks low and, at $0.75 (I bought at 0.63), is well off its 52 week high of $2.05. Looking to make $0.50 a share net of costs.

I was looking at YZC, but was wary of buying into a communist state owned stock. I decided on BTU instead, as they are the only major US coal concern with Chinese and Australian operations. Wariness aside, I do believe YZC to be a tremendous long term opportunity. Don't know anything about the rest of them though. Good luck!

That is a concern being state owned. Have you looked at some oil ones:

NEP
CBEH

No, I haven't looked at those. I'm mostly in banks right now, but energy is my next play when banks start to top out. I like HES, BP, SUN, NGG, BTU and ACI in that sector. Oil prices should be back thru the roof by next summer, with natural gas right behind it. After that, it will be home builders and building materials.

recently took my modest gains on:
FLR (Fluor Corp.. gov't services & energy)
IBM
DSGX (Descartes.. small logistical software company)

still holding:
WMT (Wal Mart)
TLT (20+ year treasury fund)

looking for some strong dividend stocks (maybe some of those Tobacco stocks?)
or maybe a low-expense bond fund.

If you dont mind the potential tax implications maybe a REIT or Pipline company I own ICR, KMP and TRP.

I took at look at KMP. High dividend, but $52 for a share of $1.14 earnings seems steep. I'm wondering why there is such a high premium. TransCanada looks to be more modestly priced. I don't know much about the pipeline industry, though.

I found an REIT under ICRLX, but no ICR. If it is the same one, looks like they buy various mortgage backed securities, and mortgage debt.

I'm something like 67% in money market right now, I need a little more risk too, and was thinking about buying some IBB (iShares Biotech ETF).

I'm looking at European banks, as they are still lagging behind after the recent big run up on US banks. I like BCS, LYG, DB and AIB.
