Greetings Carl,Walmart recently pulled up it's stakes here in Germany. It bought out a German firm called Wertkauf (1998 time frame) and attempted to establish itself here. After many lawsuits and underselling allegations / litigation, it finally stated it will sell out to another firm.ING - I don't keep up with banking per say, but I wanted to diverisfy a bit and am a member of the Stuttgarter Aktien Klub and it was what they term a "fallen angel". I bought it beaten down and it is up 65% since I acquired it two years ago. (good dividend)AEGON - is another beaten down stock in the insurance sector. They give a decent dividend and offer stocks instead of cash, which I take advantage of. They do a lot of private retirement account / insurance and I've also done well with them.Solarworld is a German company and I am un over 2,000%. I have taken my original investment out with some of my capital gain, but the bulk of the stock is still sitting, waiting for the next solar wave. As long as solar energy is subisdized here in Germany, the stock should do well. They have now obtained contracts in Asia, USA, Spain as well as other European countries. You'll find it listed in the "Tech DAX".One of my new purchases is Wire Card (German). Their web site is www.wirecard.de. They remind me of paychex. The company works with securing internet transactions and is doing well. They are about to be taken into the TECH DAX here in Germany.Cheers,Byrchaos
