I NEVER feel compelled to recommend a stock but I have to say that in this market there is an outstanding number of bargains, Im saying right here that a buy and hold on MT at 17 dollars is one of the greatest bargains ive EVER SEEN PERIOD. BUY IT. BUY IT ALL. ITS soooo cheap. And it makes money hand over fist. If you genuinely want a good long term play for your portfolio you cannot do better. He guy who owns it Lakshmi is/was the second richest man in Britain. If I was the CEO of a company like BHP I would go hostile on this baby right now. Period.
