I am looking to diversify my share portfolio which is currently dominated by Australian shares, what international shares & technology stocks would you recommend?

I am 64 and looking to diversify my share portfolio, (which is currently dominated by quality Australian shares other than 5% of my portfolio in Berkshire Hathaway B shares) to include a greater allocation of international shares and technology stocks. I did have a holding in MHH but sold out. I am however concerned about the strength of the tech sector this year.

What are your thoughts on the Sydney Airport Entitlement offer? Is it worthwhile?

What are your thoughts on investing in the current Sydney Airport Entitlement offer? Is it worthwhile?

Not being overly knowledgeable on the art of shorting stocks, these few clarifications will help clear up information delivered within the table in the Saturday report
