DOOM ON - Qatar Invests in Land & Gold
It has been rumored that wealthy investors from Qatar made a fortune shorting airline stocks before 9/11.

More recently, the Qatar Investment Authority (QIA) bought a 2 percent stake in French oil company Total, which is the 2nd biggest foreign oil producer in Libya, just before Operation Mermaid Dawn was launched. You may remember that Mermaid Dawn was the code-name for the "liberation" of Tripoli, which effectively ended Gaddafi's rule.

So, where is savvy Qatar putting its money now? Based on a recent CNBC interview with Qatar's PM, it seems that Qatar is becoming a "prepper." Qatar is investing in land & gold.

LAND
The gas-rich Gulf state has bought more than $5 billion or $6 billion of real estate assets over the last four to five months, mostly in the United States and Europe, Sheikh Hamad said.

GOLD MINING COMPANIES
Earlier this week Reuters quoted banking sources as saying Qatar Holding, one of the country's investment vehicles, was in advanced talks to buy a 49-percent stake in Brazilian gold firm AUX for about $2 billion. Qatar Holding subsequently issued a statement denying that such talks had taken place. However, asked about Qatar's intentions towards AUX, Sheikh Hamad told CNBC: "We're studying it. Still there is no commitment from our side." Details of the proposal need to be presented to the board, he added without elaborating.

Excerpt from WSJ story (see link above)

Qatar's sovereign-wealth fund has accumulated a 2% stake in French oil company Total SA over several months, according to a person familiar with the matter...

"(The Qataris) bought shares on the market, as they are astute investors," said the person familiar with the matter. "Since last summer, the share price increased quite a bit, so this was a valid investment," the person said...

Shares of Total have gained 33% since hitting a low point in August, and the company's market capitalization is slightly higher than €100 billion ($130.83 billion), making it the largest on the Paris stock market.

With a 2% stake, Qatar became one of Total's largest individual shareholders...
