Carl Icahn is ruffling feathers over there at the moment, and it could be interesting. By teh way, do you also take into account currency movements when investing in overseas stock?

Hes wrong and will change his mind.

Otherwise:

Investment:

£ 10,000 of canned food in Zimbabwe

As interest appears to have died in this, can I suggest we cancel all bets made so far and start with a clean slate in November?

I am going to produce a table on 1st November.

I can only include people who have (a) joined; (b) followed the rules; and (c) provided an easily verifiable source for their investment price. If you haven't done so already, please post a note of the website where the latest prices are available.

I don´t expect to be on the table, but I am still doing very nicely transferring money across. About six weeks it was around 950 pesos per Pound. Today I transferred some more at 1100 per pound. If this continues I might take all my money across.
