No. of Recommendations: 2

I have decided not to invest in any of the above mentioned stocks for two reasons:

1. I do not fully understand how these companies work and what affects their ability to earn money.

2. They all seem to be highly leveraged (i.e. Total Assets / Equity in the region of 10 or above). Perhaps this is typical of all financial institutions, but since I don't understand any better, it makes them more of a speculation to me rather than an investment.
