    Hot stock tip

    Nice work nomadic. Has anyone else been following this? Up another 3% last night. So it's pumped, I wonder when it will get dumped. There has been one very high volume day on Jan 16th when over 40 million shares were traded and closed at $6.81 then volume shrank to under 5 million. There are...

    $250k burning a hole in my pocket.

    Are you in Barcelona? If you're a stay at home mum not doing much except for looking after a baby then buy this place and set it up for Airbnb. Can you kick this tenant out? http://www.apartmentbarcelona.com/en/apartments-for-sale/barceloneta-beach-meer-groundfloor-for-sale-xi/1986/details/eur

    Wage disparity

    The fact is women are paid the same as men for doing the same job. You've been challenged dozens of times to give 1 (one) example but you cannot. If it was 'across the board' then surely you could name one? The reason you can't is because they don't exist. Even Forbes, your preferred source of...

    What is an acceptable gross/net yield now that rates are so low?

    Yeah, naa. You won't find an A grade property yielding 7%. Maybe they're non regional and considered 'metro' but I wouldn't say they're in good areas and are usually the ones which fall harder in a downturn. But good for you, I mean that. Body corp is $30pw but council rates are high because...

    What should happen after the execution

    This will go down in AFP history as the worst, or one of the worst mistakes they've ever made in tipping off the Indonesians. You can't get more stupid than that. They should sack all the keystone cops who were involved. Interesting the media has been quiet on those responsible.

    What is an acceptable gross/net yield now that rates are so low?

    I think their definition of non regional is different to mine. Sure you can get 7%+ yields but they'd be in areas I probably wouldn't consider. Agree with Deltaberry the best properties have super low yields but this is the trade off for A grade location with virtually nil vacancies. Maybe I...

    What should happen after the execution

    The drug victims are themselves because they can't control their addiction. Oh you're talking about robbery victims of addicts? Drugs are expensive because they're illegal. Decriminalize it and supply pharmaceutical clean drugs and you'll see huge improvements. That link has nothing to do...

    What should happen after the execution

    Massive difference between getting paid to smuggle drugs for financial benefit and molesting kids. There's no victims with drug use. People use them willingly and ruin their own lives if it affects their finances, health, employment, relationships etc. Nothing wrong with having some heroin...

    What is an acceptable gross/net yield now that rates are so low?

    No. I think the guys talking about getting 7%+ gross yields are buying in regional areas or places where cap growth is limited but I could be wrong. I'm not a property snob but I prefer to buy in blue chip areas, renovate and hold for the long term.

    On the other hand you should be pulling the trigger on your daughter for being such a loser. She has no-one to blame but herself.

    Wage disparity

    - people pay more to see men play tennis so it's fair they get a bigger pay cheque. - female actresses in their 20's get paid more than men but they generally have less pulling power so it's fair they get a lesser cut of the box office. - female super models get paid more than male models. -...

    what more can be down to rent a unit quickly please.

    If your agent is good he should be giving you feedback about what prospective tenants are saying, especially about the one that fell through. What is the feedback? Too overpriced, noisy location? You need to think like a tenant and see what the competition is. Do a search on realestate.com.au...

    Bali Nine

    It's helpful for those zombie sheep like yourself who say "well they broke the law so let's shoot them" without any consideration for their remorse and the benefit they provide others. Learn to think for yourself instead of blindly accepting the law is "correct". I said before the holocaust...

    Bali Nine

    One of you were saying all drug users (alcohol, caffeine, nicotine etc) are idiots and you'd personally shoot them in the heart for breaking the law. Yet you drink coffee which also affects your mind so it's hard to take anything you say seriously. If one of those mules was your daughter, I...

    Wage disparity

    The reason women are generally paid less than men is because if we're ever on a Titanic which starts to sink, it will be the women and children who get to leave first. Same deal in a hostage situation. This 5 minute video explains it better: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=imZ52DHBtug...

    What is an acceptable gross/net yield now that rates are so low?

    There used to be a rough rule of thumb which said the gross yield was 5% for houses and 7% for units. That was when rates were higher than they are now. Of course this was flexible depending on the suburb and location. So now that standard variable rates are under 5%, do you think a 5.5% gross...

    Chile

    Thanks Geoff, I'll do that and send you a PM when I arrive next month. Not all of SEA is dirty, unsanitary, corrupt and unsafe. The same could be said for LatAm but it's a gross generalization.

    Chile

    I'm not sure why you say it cuts out all of SE Asia? Cost of living is cheap in SEA and there's lots of English speaking schools (International) so maybe you're referring to health and safety? Chile is arguably the safest country in the continent. While it's not as expensive as Brazil, expect to...
