Mr  Westminster

Any suggestions of which types of prime commercial real estate and where?

Hastings perhaps? Maybe a few packing sheds?

Only 50% gearing? Why not a bit more?

More profit that way?

cheers

Bernard,

I prefer to keep gearing at more conservative levels, but would go to 50% if the property was of very high quality. As for location, depends on whether we are talking office, industrial, retail etc. There are some very good industrial holdings in Hastings. Its a case by case analysis though really.

And may I ask what you would you do with your $34m if you won the powerball Mr Hickey

Many thanks.

Gearing not really my thing. Would love to live a debt-free life.

First thing I’d do is pay off my little mortgage (less than 1/3 of value of house we live in). 50% plus gearing sounds not all that conservative.

I’d keep my job!

Actually I’d probably invest a bit more in this little business we have going here. Growing fast already in a debt-free and profitable way, but there’s so much more we could do.

We’d love to employ a few more journalists, technologists and analysts here to keep the bastards honest.

And to have lots of fun talking about monetary policy, tax policy, investing theory, property markets, property markets and interest rates all day long.

And I’d put an awful lot in the bank. I wouldn’t put much in property.

And I’d even buy you a coffee Mr Westminster…

And a big bag of gummy bears for GBH

And a new pushbike for Powerdownkiwi

And a punching bag for Wolly…

Ah the fun I could have…

Need to buy a blinking ticket now…

cheers

    I can just see you bedouin down for the evening.

    Humming quietly “Ahab a dreammmm…..”

    I’m told some of them kept polishing their……lamps, hoping someone would send Aladdin.

    They’d have likely been dissappointed – bet he was a fakir. We need turban that kind of thing.

    aw shucks, Bernard, that’s nice.

    But a push-bike would need gearing, and we couldn’t go there…….

    And I just counted up, there are more than 20 here already.

    Nice thought though…..

    So true PDK….so true……When we were first married in the Puritanical Church we were so poor that in the abscence of furniture I had to sit on a spike…….when a friend inquired where my wife sat….she replied “I sit on Christov as two spikes would be an extravagance.”
