My stock portfolio

The Best Australian stock portfolio for 2008

In these volatile times what is the best stocks. where is the best option to bring in some $$ gains. do we start storing our cash in high interest savings accounts or gold stocks or is there still hope in the stock market. By the looks from recent shocks in the market , America is definitely heading towards recession more sooner than later irrespective of what the government can do to try save it from its fate.

Irrespective of what the reputed brokers and reputed financial consultants have been telling you that the china and India boom and growth will keep our stock market strong. Its not gonna happen and you will still keep getting margin calls if margin broking is your thing

The Recession scenario for 2008 will unfold like this

  • More Market volatility from sub prime woes in 2008
  • US entering recession Therefore less consumer spending ( less Chinese exports to US )
  • Less earnings for china from reduced Chinese and Indian exports to US thus slowing growth and income in these growing economies
  • Therefore reducing their buying and financial power in importing the needed resources from Australia

So forgets what all the broking pundits have been saying and belt up for some turbulent weather, they economy of growing countries like china and India will certainly be affected by recession in US , which will filter down to us here in Australia.

So what are my picks , what is my portfolio for these turbulent times. HERE ARE SOME STOCKS I HAVE PICKED WHEN THE MARKET CRASHED THIS JAN 2008


  1. LEI $43.10
  2. ANZ $25.67
  3. HVN $5.54
  4. WOW $29.32

  6. BHP $33.99
  7. MGX $2.26
  8. RHG $0.23
  9. BPT $1.25
  10. PLV $1.46

    Hi there!
    I would like to burn a theme at here. There is such a nicey, called HYIP, or High Yield Investment Program. It reminds of ponzy-like structure, but in rare cases one may happen to meet a company that really pays up to 2% daily not on invested money, but from real profits.

    For quite a long time, I earn money with the help of these programs.
    I'm with no money problems now, but there are heights that must be conquered . I make 2G daily, and I started with funny 500 bucks.
    Right now, I'm very close at catching at last a guaranteed variant to make a sharp rise . Turn to my blog to get additional info. [url=]Online Investment Blog[/url]
