in response to reader comment: Betting on Egypt

Michael,

Your lack of knowledge is overwelming. Here is the proof of that:

1- You said, I cannot see into the futrue!. My question is who are you exactly? or what do you do for living?Obviously, you have shallow understanding of finance and economics , that is why your eyes cannnot see what an economist eyes could see and I will not waste my time here to educate you about demographics or future economic trends. How could you say that investment banks cannot see or forecast through the future?Do you truely live on earth or have a minimal undestanding of how invstment banks works.Unfortunatly your view shows your major lack of understanding but yet you speak with such a pompus spirit.2- In terms of Egypt being desprate, do you see lately notice the visits by the crown prince to Egypt before and during the enaguration of the new Suze Canal?. For your info, Suadi's are realizing now that they cannot rely on Turkish president's to give them support and protections due to his problems inside Turkey.Not only they see that , but also are so afraid of improving relationship between Egypt and Iran.Would this visit and the stronger ties between Egypt and the GCC shows any desprate measure by Egypt?Do not you unerstand that Egypt is one of the major stability pillare to the GCC and the middle east in genral.Even Eureopean leaders , Russia and China are recognizing Egypt new role and increasing their economic and political ties with Sisi.

3-Obviously, you do not read Financial magazine to know that when I was telling you about the massive infusion of Cash , I was not talking about GCC financial support, but was talking about the tens of billions of dollars Western companies (i.e., BP, Simens, Coca cola, etc.......) committed to invest in the Egypian economies through binding contracts that were signed between them and the Egyptian govenemet.

4- Go and search for what were the most High return on investment Stoch markets in 2014. By the way I am talking about the present here not future since you lack the ability to see through the future. Cairo Stock market ranked #2 globally for the highest return on investment.

I can go on and on with my list, but rather not to waste more time than that.

Submitting....
