ARAY looking good...

walter said...

pradeep, you ever cross paths with MBT - russian telecom (i believe).

has had nice growth, chart kinda setting up nice...

Pradeep Bonde said...

Needs a high volume breakout. Has been a laggard.

Bill said...

GLDN, also a Russian telecom, has been on Pradeep's lists recently. There may be similar macro trends driving the MBT.

Leisa said...

I'll give it a go, Pradeep.

Pradeep Bonde said...

All these stocks GLDN, VIP, MBT and other telcos have ran up post earnings breakout couple of quarters ago (August Sept onwards). Some of them have more than doubled since then. So lot of good things are priced in. So I am not very excited by them unless they have very good earnings and breakout again.
They are more vulnerable to correction at this stage.

Leisa said...

Pradeep, have you read any of Gunter Grass's works? I have The Rat and the Danzig Trilogy. I've started both, but have finished neither.

walter said...

makes sense - so gotta find fresh meat...

telecom not so fresh

walter said...

you should name one of your scans "fresh meat"

"double trouble" has nice ring to it.

the name "episodic pivots" is kinda boring

Pradeep Bonde said...

Leisa

Walter
Out of your list I have read all books by
Sartre , read all books.

Gabriel Garcia Marquez,his recent auto biography (Vivir Para Contarla) is excellent , plus his last book Memories of My Melancholy Whores by Gabriel Garcia Marquez, was fun read. One Hundred Years of Solitude and Love in the Time of Cholera, two of my favorite books. Read several times. My favorite author.

Camus L Etranger (The Stranger) I must have read atleast 50 times till now. One of my favorite.

Herman Hesse
Prolific writer, I like
Siddhartha , Narcissus and Goldmund , The Glass Bead Game

well,
I think I'll never understand Garcia Marquez. I've only read Cien aƱos de Soledad and I'm still doubting there is a simple idea in this book. Of course the guy writes very well, but does he has something to say?. Needless to say
my native language is Spanish.

walter said...

magical realism in itself says enough... at least for me.

Semsons said...

some things in Sout America are what we'd call magical realism. Indeed, you don't need a big creative capacity to pass from realism to "magical realim".
It's funny, I meet some months ago a colombian girl who does not know how many brothers she has. She estimates, that they must be not least than 20, probably 30/40. His father is a lovely man that generates several children for each place he passes. jaja

Pradeep Bonde said...

It is at one level masterful metaphor about history of Colombia and much of Latin America.

The beauty about good, well crafted book is you can read so many things in to it. It is also a metaphor for life, futility of war, human struggle, ambition, love and so on.
