Rio Tinto

Q.  

Hi Gaurav, A few years ago I purchased Rio Tinto shares for $73.15 each. I have been sitting on them for sometime now with the hope that the mining sector will turn around. For the last few days, the market showed some of these signs with the share price of RIO closing at $62.87. As such, my question is: when do you think will be a good time to sell? That is, should I continue to hold the shares in the hope of selling the shares greater then $73.15 or should I be willing to sell them at a lower price. Regards, SD

Stocks to protect from inflation

Q.  

I am expecting increased inflation this year. It will likely be accompanied by, but not dependent on, a fall in the AUD. I would appreciate your ideas on which ASX shares will provide the best protection/profit from a general rise in the level of inflation. Many Thanks. Greg

Is Carsales' Australian business mature?

Q.  

Carsales has had some ordinary announcements of late re their Finance Company and iCar Asia. They have a 65% share of a business in Mexico. Donald's actions over the next few months are more likely than not to impede Mexico's economy. Could this represent another element for concern about Carsales more immediate results or are all of these things likely to blow away in due course. My impression is that the market in Australia is reasonably mature and Carsales profit improvements would come from overseas. Your views would be appreciated.

Portfolios following recommendations

Q.  

Hi Guys, I'm looking to build a portfolio heavily based on your Income and Growth portfolio stocks. I was just wondering why some of the companies you have listed in your 'buy/hold/sell' tab under 'recommendations', are not also featured as part of your listed portfolios? Are they more short-term trades rather than long term investments? Or do you have set weightings per sector so they cannot all be included? Thanks

CGT discount in SMA portfolios

Q.  

Hi there, I have a question relating to tax effectiveness. Based on history in your Growth portfolio, what proportion of the positions are held for over 1 year? I can imagine this is not a concern when making decisions to hold or sell but as you'd be aware the Capital Gains Tax for a typical 'individual' (ATO perspective) would be at a discount of 50% if a position is held longer than 1 year. Thanks
