If I Were a Rich Man...

Er, woman.
But whatever.
I'd buy shares in Tim Horton's. I just don't see how this could ever be a bad investment.

One way would be if they have saturated the Canadian market but don't appeal to American tastes.

If I were you, I'd stick to politics. There is a big difference between a good company and a good investment.

If everyone thinks like you do, then the risk is that the price will be bid up beyond what the company can deliver profit-wise. Certainly that is what Wendy's is counting on. They will take your money now, while you take risk.

Possibly, but if you sell at the right time you do stand to make a tidy profit.

I think you could do well investing in Tim's. I think you could also do well investing in Wendy's.

A good investment until the Nanny State begins sin-taxing junk food to save us from ourselves (that is Big Government's next wave and that has already started), and to pay for the huge, bloated bureaucracy that is meant to save us from ourselves (obesity is okay in bureaucracies), then your investment is screwed. (Assuming that you haven't been sent off to a de-concentration camp by then.)

That's what everyone who bought Nortel said.

joan... people who bought Nortel at the right time and sold at the right time made a killing.

It's not about holding onto it all, it's about watching it closely and selling when you have made a good profit. :)
