^uhh.. just let it be, that's the data he was able to gather. sheesh, i don't like it when fellow Filipinos sourgrape whenever issues like this arise.

well i'm sure you don't know as well that the current Philippine stock exchange arose from the merger of the Makati Stock Exchange and the Manila Stock Exchange.

i think investing to stocks today is not that profitable because our economies are being pulled down by the US recession, maybe excluding China and India..
