    Temasek will be one of the biggest casualties. It took a 12 per cent stake worth about A$400 million last year, buying in when the shares were at A$7.30 only to see the stock plummet to 54 Australian cents before they were suspended.

    Correct me if I am wrong.

    It is in the news. I think it is alright.

    When you invest, sometimes you loose and sometimes you win. However if overall you are in the black it is still alright.

    I don't know the figure. However I think one has to look at the picture as a whole.

    In the current situation, the one who has the smallest loss is one the winners. Agree?

    Simple Logic.

    Win... You got no share.
    Loss... You got taxed more.
