iBond application submitted

My views on the Hong Kong government's third issue of iBonds are the same as for the first two issues - they are a poor investment in general but better than leaving cash on deposit with the banks. My previous comments are here.

Needless to say, I expect the allocations to be as small as last time. If it required any more effort than a few clicks of a mouse, it probably wouldn't be worth it.

"Do not apply any strategy that you think will not work for your business."

That's really rubbish advice, as good as "Do not put on a pair of jeans if you are already wearing a pair of jeans".

Any views on Hopewell properties or on the new Langham listing?

@ J-D

Sorry, but I have not looked at Hopewell for a long time and haven't looked at Langham at all.

That sums it up nicely - better then cash, but not much else.

With the likely outcome of one or two lots each (HKD10,000 - 20,000). quiet frankly, it is too trivial to be bothered with.
