Emerging Markets: Venezuela Is High On My List

It's high on my list but I'm not good at timing. But I think there will probably be a better time later to buy Venezuela. But yes, it's high on my list.

North Korea: Kim Jong-un Is Making Dramatic Changes

North Korea today is where China was in 1980 or 81 and I wish I'd invested in China in 1981. 

The kid (Kim Jong-un) has only been there a short period of time. He was educated in Switzerland, so he knows there's another world out there. He's already making dramatic changes he wants to start over he doesn't want to live in North Korea. He'd like to live like they live in South Korea. So change is coming and usually when a country goes from that kind regime is dirt cheap.

North Korea: Sooner or Later, A Stock Exchange Is Coming

I only invest in publicly traded entities, they got to be listed somewhere. So no, I'm not gonna buy a highway in North Korea. There's no stock market in North Korea yet but they're learning. They've been sending guys outside of North Korea to learn about stock market, so it's coming.

Emerging Markets: Colombia

Q: How much time and effort are you putting into your research? Because you mentioned yesterday Colombia, you mentioned Russia, you mentioned North Korea.

A: Well, you should know about these countries because Colombia had a 50-year civil war that's come to an end and I have learned over the years that when a war comes to an end or a civil war there are usually astonishing opportunities.
