Commentaar:

Indien je niet voor dezelfde problemen wil komen te staan zoals met
AHOLD en Parmalat dan is het goed het boek te lezen KOSTOLANY'S
BEURSKRONIEK.

"Bovendien moet men bij teksten tussen de regels kunnen lezen en
ieder bericht overwegen wat erachter zit en of de informatie niet
misleidend is of ongeloofwaardig"

Wolters Kluwer is een prima onderneming, maar je moet wel uitkijken
dat je niet veel betaalt.

Het koersverloop van GETRONICS 2900 % en VERSATEL 1600 % kan WOLTERS
nooit evenaren.
