Is there any way of buying Lukoil?

Anyone know if it’s being traded anywhere? Or what the perspective is if it’s going to be traded again abroad once the Moscow stock exchange opens?

I still have (maybe?) a position in them. Who knows if/when it will be tradable again.


OutOfLuck Oil?

I believe it will be at about 130, Rubles that is, so about $6.50 a share or minus 92% YTD.

Yeah, this was a smart buy. Can I interest you in a New York bridge?

One of my brokers has a warning banner in pink on the Trade page
“Important Update regarding Trading Russian Securities” with brief details indicating trading of Russian stocks and holdings is “VERBOTEN!!” (well, it says “restricted”, but I was attempting to capture the red triangle with a !, and “VERBOTEN!!” seemed more appropriate)


The closed-end fund “Central and Eastern Europe Fund” (CEE) is still trading on the NYSE.

It doesn’t work that way.

Direct or indirectly Putin gets the money. Any successful business in Russia pays the Piper and the Piper’s name is Putin.

So, any investment in a Russian stock is an investment Putin and his Oligrachs.
