Greetings Siemens Fools(all two of you)!Thank you Anibaldo for requesting this board, as I have been looking forward to Siemens listing in the US. I fear I am not terribly knowledgeable about the company yet. But I have begun my research. My 2000 Annual Report (year-ending Sept.) was requested today, and my printer is busy spewing out the 2001 Q1 Press Release as I type this.The reasons for my intrest in Siemens are several. I think European companies as a whole will benefit in the future, perhaps realizing greater gains than their American counterparts. The Euro still has room to grow, and I don't see Europe following the US economic slump. At least not to the same dramatic extent.Siemens appears very diversified, more General Electric than Nokia. Thus, I would think it would offer a bit more stability without too much sacrifice in growth.I want to diversify into several European nations. Currently, I only have intrests in Finland. I feel more comfoftable in nations like Germany or The Netherlands, with less governmental interference, than I would in Spain, Italy, or even France.I am still very ignorant in regards to this company, and I would appreciate help in learning. I will do the best I can. As I said, I've only begun my research, but perhaps I can offer up some questions.What exactly is Infineon, and why is it seperated in the Financial Statements?In what foreign(non-German) countries is the most growth currently taking place? In what business segments? Do we predict this to continue?US President Bush has stated he wants a stronger Euro. Should the Euro rise significantly(say 1 to 1 vs. the $), would this seriously impact revenues?Again, I'm sorry to offer more questions than answers, but perhaps creating a dialogue on some of these issues could draw a greater audience to this board.Looking forward to any response, and to learning more about Siemens.seansan
