Eureka Correspondence

Mortgage Choice and Origin.

Mortgage Choice

The Mortgage Choice share price has come off a lot lately and is still coming down. Is there any reason for this you can see? MOC is one of Tom Elliott's takeover stocks (My top three takeover stocks, October 7).

Tom Elliott's response: Thanks for your letter. I'm still holding MOC personally. I agree it's performed badly in recent times, but I still think CBA will either bid for the company or sell its stake to someone who will.

Origin

As a long suffering Origin investor - do you think they will ever bounce back or should I bail out and cut my losses?

Ian

Editor's response: Thanks for your letter. The team at Stocks In Value has recently offered some thoughts on Origin - Origin: The case to take up your rights (October 12) and Gas fired hopes for Origin (September 21).
