KAZ is the ticker of Kazakhmys in London trading (KAZ:LN) and that of BMB Munai on NYSE Amex (KAZ:US). Whereas the latter company is rather obscure, the former is a component of the FTSE 100 and entirely non-obscure.

A recent addition to my list of calls is an "outperform" call on Rusal (486:HK, RUSAL:FP).


Rusal Considers Selling $500 Million of Ruble Bonds

March 17 (Bloomberg) -- United Co. Rusal, the world’s largest aluminum producer, is considering selling more than $500 million of ruble bonds to pay down bank debt and has offers from Russian banks to manage the sale.


Rusal, controlled by billionaire Oleg Deripaska, completed Russia’s biggest corporate restructuring last year and became the first Russian company to list in Hong Kong. The transactions cut Rusal’s debt to $12.9 billion from about $17 billion and tied most of the producer’s spending to repayment of borrowings.

Caspian Services (CSSV.OB) - $0.43 - outperform?

Interesting that Rusal listed in Hong Kong.  I see you have also green thumbed COSCO (1919.HK), China Construction Bank (939.HK), and Industrial and Commercial Bank of China (1398.HK) in that thread.

There are so many Chinese shares listed in the US I decided not to bother with the Hong Kong market. I do like the Australian market though.

I have never looked at CSSV. It is probably too "obscure" for me, hehe ...

Those "outperform" calls on the large Chinese banks have not done all that great so far.

The COSCO call was more or less part of a sector call. I also like Møller-Mærsk (MAERSKB:DC) and Hapag-Lloyd (TUI1:GR).
