New Terminologies Added To Asian Financial Lexicon
I was chatting with the usual bunch of piggy and doggy friends at Fusion Investor, and we were discussing the Vietnam effect. Somehow I managed to coin two new words for the Asian financial players. When you use the following new terms, please attribute appropriately (ahem):
Vietnami (~ tsunami) Definition: Stocks and market sentiment being caught up as collateral damage due to Vietnam's financial implosion.
Vietnamah (~ tnm, cantonese) Definition : When you are actually holding stocks directly impacted by Vietnam's financial implosion. For example, those still holding Gamuda, B Land, WCT, Scomi, Parkson, SP Setia.
