Has heartburn from its ABN Amro acquisition last June. Had another $2 billion write-down on CDO exposure and also had to sell assets to appease regulators. Scrapped the dividend and paid stock instead. This will create a huge dilution and earnings will probably be flat for the next couple of years. He sold his holdings.

Involved with the Royal Bank of Scotland in the ABN-Amro deal and took over the retail business in the Netherlands. They have to integrate this, which is a longer-term process and could hold back the stock. If they meet all their targets they will do well over a longer period of time.

Basically went down because of the takeover on the rights issue. 7% yield. With the ABN acquisition, they get the Dutch operations, which will be very good for them. Very limited sub prime exposure. A tremendous buying opportunity.

A Belgian bank/insurance company. Dividend yield of about 3.6% and interest rates are about 3.4%, so you are getting the same yield with the prospect of capital appreciation.

Starting to grow out in eastern Europe where the big growth is occurring. The euro has been rising faster against the US$ than the Cnd$. A nice natural way to hedge your portfolio. 4% dividend.
