Website news & MANDA updates

Website news
First of all, Dr. Kris wishes to thank Professor Pat for taking up the slack last week while I was on vacation. His two articles on the effect of adding gold to a diversified portfolio and his other article on the difference between compounded and average returns are not to be missed, especially for you long-term investors.

The second order of business is that the interviews I did at the Los Angeles Trader’s Expo last month are available for viewing. I did four short interviews and they are listed as links below the Blue Plate Specials on the right. Just so you know, Dr. Kris does not photograph well at all and looks infinitely better in person.

MANDA Portfolio Updates
The last trading day for Nova Chemicals (NCX) was July 6th. It was successfully acquired by Abu Dhabi’s state-owned International Petroleum Investment Company at $6 per share. The updated portfolio table reflecting this change is given below.

On July 8, AT&T (T) announced that it expects its acquisition of Centennial Communications (CYCL) to close in the third quarter instead of the second. The deal still needs the seal of approval from regulatory agencies.
