Interesting point- snip >That’s particularly significant since Chinese citizens have now risen to become the No. 1 source of international investment into U.S. real estate. They bought $27.3 billion in that asset class in the 12 months through March 2016, 27% of the $102.6 billion total that came from abroad into U.S. bricks and mortar.

P.S. Only in the USA- Just stopped by Ulta yesterday to pick up my last Christmas gifts. Urban Decay cosmetics for my daughters. Maybe Loreal will have to re-name the line. <G>

Happy New Year To All IN 2017 2016 SITT year in review. First Two hits on 2016 Top ten SITT list. Newport & TEX. Tex however was not completed. NEWPORT/ by MKS instrments. UNTD was taken out this year. However it ended up being a wash/ or small take under for myself. AMCC- Applied Micro Circuits was taken out. Along with HAR/Harmon INT. (not yet completed). Biggest losses this year were AVP & MCF. I sold out losing positions due to earlier booked gains. Biggest gain this year was CECE/Ceco int. Biggest loss was AVP from the remaining stake I held on to from the failed COTY bid. MY Biggest disappointment - selling my NVIDIA Corporation-NVDA way to early. Biggest surprise- was the % overall gain I achieved in a portfolio of over 30 stocks this year. This mainly due to having weighted positions in gainers along with Savvy option trading. The way this year started out . That's why it was a surprise. Some Of the biggest gains have been booked already. Sitting on 30% cash now.

P.S.

Thanks, I'm not expecting a repeat year like this past year, buy one can never tell. Best Computer I ever had was a Gateway. Money is one thing, but this was one of my high points.

P.S.

First buy of the new Year -RELY-REAL INDUSTRY INC

Very risky, but I like the latest complimentary acquisition. There's also interesting little niche of a skin care company about 10 million in sales. This company has ties to Sam Zell. Itel was a distressed company I once owned. He turned that around.

RE-CTG The company is stepping up their buy back plan. I'm stepping up to the plate also. Added shares today.

P.S.>The Plan enables shares to be purchased during an otherwise self-imposed blackout period between quarter-end and the reporting of the Company’s financial results. Under its existing plan announced in November 2016, the Company had repurchased a total of 317,253 common shares at an average price of $4.28 per share on trades settled through January 5, 2017, and approximately $8.64 million was available under the Company’s outstanding repurchase authorization as of that date.
“The decision to implement a 10b5-1 plan reflects our continued belief that buying back shares at the current valuation is an effective use of the Company's capital,” commented CTG President and Chief Executive Officer, Bud Crumlish.
