    20k US$ to spare

    If you had USD 20 000 just sitting in a bank doing nothing right now that you could spare what would you do with it? Apart from me giving it to you or spending it on (insert vice here).

    If you have a five year timeframe, I would invest in commodity stocks which are trading at attractive levels now. Pretty easy to double that money within 3-4 years IMHO.

    IF, your not to risk averse putting some money into Thai Air wouldn't be too bad an idea. Gov't owned (49%) hence a pretty good banking partner. Another might be Siam Commercial when the banks hit bottom.

    Picking a bottom is dangerous business but if your time frame is long enough we are approaching bottoms in both of those.

    Otherwise look for Preferred Stock in large multi-nationals. With the credit market drying up you should be able to get yearly divvies of between 6 and 9 percent on top of any actual rise in stock price.

    There you have it - lend it to Spin at an annual interest of 15-20% - you'd both be making a profit!

    Keep it in the bank. Make it a safe one - HSBC for example.

    Thats not true in the case of certain stocks which have already been beaten down 80% from just a few months ago and are trading at PE's of between 3 and 5. The risk of buying in at these prices is quite low now.

    Spin sounds about right, after the drops we've seen recently the downside risk cannot be high, esp on the big caps.

    what could possibly go wrong ?

    how many of these optimists on this board hold shares and are just wishing this is the end of the downward spiral.


    I suggest unless you are prepared to invest in primary food production somewhere - keep it as cash ( though I hope it's not GBP )

    and yet Apples sales have hit new highs as reported just today.. Green technology companies are the way to go, they'll take few more years to be really solid but it shouldn't be a short term investment anyway..

    Lots of good things even though SET hasn't seen its low and likely to break 450 with 420-400 also on the cards, but looking ahead I'd boldly tip LL (0.91) and SAM (0.75) - among several others - for doubling up or better within 2 years.
