aspazia II????
donpietro I agree with a doubt of aspazia...

II answer - "any untrue" is really ok ? As we can read in notes "this standard does not rule out correct statements that some investments re actually guaranted in some way wit guaranted returns..... "
Slothrop Perhaps II is correct because it is misrepresentation to guarantee a "superior" return, but not misrepresentation to guarantee "a" return on a security (for a government security, for example).
treas i agree wid slothrop
sanyukta superior is the wrong word here thats y 11 too is included
Shalva Superior returns can't be guaranteed, there only is some probability to earn such return
kforcfa missed II, any statement that guarantees superior returns. thus if you state about guaranteed return on treasury stock its ok, and if you state about SUPERIOR guaranteed return its violation? is SUPERIOR the key phrase here?
krisscfa Slothrop... is correct
ilgibe Think about structured products with explicit guarantees on capital.
