Rkugler,

It looks like we're the only ones on this thread. I notice today that Kepco is back close to 8. My info (from DLJDirect) puts that at just about its 5 year low, although for some reason P/E information is missing. Nothing's on file with the SEC, no annual report appears to be available through my normal sources. I lived in Korea for about 5 years a while back and know that Kepco is the only show in town. If the won is devalued 25%, then they'll have to pay that much more for oil (Korea has no domestic fuel source) and the coming depression will no doubt depress energy demand, reducing profits. But it's down from 27 to 8. Hmmm. Investing this way reminds me of Clint Eastwood's famous line, "Do you feel lucky?"
