The Eastern ORTHODOX Church part 1 of 3
How old is the ORTHODOX faith? If you are ORTHODOX Christian, your religion was founded in the year 33 by Jesus Christ, the Son of God. It has not changed since that time. Our church is now almost 2,000 years old. And it is for this reason, that Orthodoxy, the Church of the Apostles and the Fathers is considered the true "one Holy Catholic and Apostolic Church." This is the greatest legacy that we can pass on to the young people of the new millennium.

Beating the market with buybacks
Six months ago, we invested in a portfolio of 24 stocks that we expected to beat the market using methodology outlined in the Review of Financial Studies. The list of the stocks was posted in April 2009 on the INSEAD knowledge website. Our methodology essentially involves buying shares of US-listed companies that announce open market share buyback programmes, and where it appears that the buyback is driven by the fact that the management believes its shares are undervalued.
