Asian Pay Television Trust – from IPO price of $0.97 to $0.38. Dividend yield of 18.4%!

HSYT came to me again to say this motherhood statement: :"The time to buy is when there's blood in the streets.Go buy APTT. Drop a lot! Dividend yield 18.4%,  P/B 0.45!"Nice, worth a look! Except that this phrase sounds vaguely familiar...Rothschild or something.
