                                                  MELBOURNE (Reuters) - Australian investors have plunged enthusiastically into the world's oldest profession as a Melbourne company became the globe's first listed brothel.

Shares of the bordello enterprise, which hired Hollywood Madam Heidi Fleiss to spice up its stock listing and touts itself as a recession-proof, five-star hotel, doubled on their first day of trading on Thursday.

if there was a meteor,
adrift amongst space,
set about on a collision course
not with Earth, but my face...

at what time i might,
be passed off like an old style
and by the meteor be smite?

                                                  My best advise would be to buy before it splits, look carefully at the spreadsheet before investing and be ready for wild fluctuations and gyrations before it settles down. It's usually hard for a new issue to penetrate a tight market but once successful insertion is achieved a quick upward spike on the chart will occur.
Initial over performance is often followed by a lull, look to this respite for the opportunity to inject new funds into derivatives.
Insider Tip: Do not enter this foray with a short position be prepared to go long.
