This may be a more foolish than Foolish question - but how the
heck does one invest in Samsung Electronics? After seeing the way
in which their products have improved in quality (from being the
cheap/unreliable basement to, e.g., LCD monitors of choice), I started
to investigate the possibility of somehow investing in their future.

However, when I try to find a stock symbol, for instance, I find
numerous symbols (3 distinct ones for "samsung electronics" alone, more if one searches on "samsung" only), but none of them really seem to be trading actively now and its not even clear what exchange they might be on (the Fool quotes page shows them as "Other OTC", presumably meaning some overseas exchange and show almost no information at all).

This suggests to me that they do not have ADR-type representation on a
US exchange and could only be bought directly through an overseas
exchange. But, if anyone has further information (or can suggest a
better Board to address this question to) - I'd appreciate it.
