Thanks for the thoughtful post.

It has been an interesting experience with GG. As for the Chinese stocks, I've lost money overall. Fortunately, I gambled on some non-GG Chinese small caps, and got out early with a profit. As you note, the business culture has been a tough lesson. I briefly lived and worked in Asia, but still chose to believe I had sufficient information (mostly from GG) to make good decisions. I was wrong. Good luck to those who are still sticking with the original investment thesis.

I've found the advisors to be smart and very good stock analysts. I will keep most of my GG stocks (8-10), as I see them as solid long term investments.

I'll miss GG. So far, I find MDP a very poor substitute.
