Quess just issued 9% of itself to Amazon at 676/share. The stock has been very weak this year and looks very cheap. It closed up 9% on the day at 480.

Also a pro-market won Greece’s general election last week, scoring an absolute majority in Parliament over the incumbent left-wing government.

petec, thanks for the continued updates on the FFH investments.  Sometimes, the investments that are outside of North American are harder to follow unless I make a conscious effect.

Is anyone following Thomas Cook? I can't find a recent thread on it but it has halved over the last couple of months and was down 20% yesterday. Seems odd, even with the weakness in Quess.

This may be a reason. Thomas cook plc going into bankruptcy.

Shouldn't be. The two are unrelated apart from the use of the name. In fact the original TC going bankrupt might give TCIL the chance to buy the rights to use the name in India in perppetuity, which would be good.
