    You were bearish in Happag, you didn’t like it all your past comments in the company where unoptimistic, you were focus in the high debt of the company, until now that the market talked with the price of the share going X3, Now you change your view, but its late , already rallied x3, and i am happy i hold my position.

    Best WISHES!!!!!

      Many thanks for your comment, NJ. Good points.

      “You were bearish in Happag” – True

      “You didn’t like it all your past comments in the company where unoptimistic” – no really, you can easily tell the narrative changed this year.

      “you were focus in the high debt of the company” – True, and am still there

      “Now you change your view” – I haven’t!

      “already rallied x3, and i am happy i hold my position.” – and so am I.

      Very well done and good luck!

      Best wished to you.
