A few years back, the Economist found that Australians are the biggest losers when it comes to gambling per capita.
Unfortunately, we aren't the biggest losers when it comes to weight loss, being the fifth heaviest male population on the planet according to Bloomberg visual data.
If you are feeling inclined towards a bit of a flutter - not that I'm an advocate - you can get $1.65 on New South Wales to win State of Origin II tomorrow night (ahem, I may or not be rolling over some small winnings from Origin I...).
If you're feeling a little braver you might choose to have a wager on Tony Abbott to still be the Coalition leader at the next election at $1.33, or perhaps even Malcolm Turnbull at $4.50.
But by far and away the biggest leveraged stakes of all at the moment appear to be happening in the world of iron ore.
It's been a heck of a ride for Fortescue Metals Group (FMG), one of the world's largest producers of iron ore, but with the iron ore price getting poleaxed, that chart is just starting to look rather ugly...
The PE ratio might appear cheap on the face of it but as at the last reporting period FMG had net debt of $8.7 billion, which is sitting against a market cap of now lower than $13 billion.
That's a highly leveraged play.
