    Please don't fall into the same trap as the dinar holders. Just becaue it's cheap doesn't make it a great buy. It very well could be great buy, but tell me what the market cap is? What's the p/e? Price per share is totally meaningless without knowing a few other things.

    Not sure how I’m wrong since I didn’t really make any kind of claim.
    From your link….
    WesternZagro Price to Earning
    Based on latest financial disclosure the price to earning indicator of WesternZagros Resources Ltd. is roughly 42.5 times. This is 97.67% higher than that of Basic Materials sector, and 85.59% higher than that of Independent Oil and Gas industry, The Price to Earning for all stocks is 103.74% lower than the firm.

    Just my opinion, but that reads like they are bit over priced.

    I haven’t followed this too closely. But aren’t these contracts between the Kurds and WZ frowned upon by the Iraqi government? I believe the Central Gov in Baghdad claims they have the sole right to negotiate contracts and export oil and gas
