  • Tesla: It's Time To Impress [View article]
    All Your Bases,
    I don't get it. What does Psalm 37:34 ("Rely on the Lord! Obey his commands! Then he will permit you to possess the land; you will see the demise of evil men.") have to do with armrests, cupholders, or car interiors?

  • Gold And Precious Metals - Caught In The Eye Of A Storm [View article]
    "Deflation does not discriminate, the price of all assets go down." Actually, deflation does discriminate, and discriminates quite dramatically. Gold, and to a lesser extent other real assets perform better in a deflationary event than paper assets. They may all go down, but the paper assets will lose much more in value. Gold doesn't have to earn anything in order to have value. In a deflation this is an advantage. Corporate earnings may fall dramatically, perhaps even go negative, and companies may even be at risk of bankruptcy in a deflation, affecting bond values as well as stock values.

  • Is Google Turning RetailMeNot Into Kindling? [View article]
    I just entered the search term "fast food coupons" into google and what did I see as the first link? www. retailmenot. com/ coupons/ fastfood

    The thesis of your article is null and void.

  • It Is Not Too Late To Hedge Against Stock ETF Risk [View article]
    Might be a good time to buy HDGE too. It's up 10.90% in the last month. But if you're brave enough to go 3x leveraged, then ERY is up 48.18% in the last month.

  • What's Up With This Crazy Stock Market? [View article]
    Expect higher commodity prices as soon as the dollar bubble pops, which it will.

    What makes you so sure that there is no crash happening in the next couple of months? The overpriced dollar has put the brakes on the global economy. US multinationals derive 40% of their earnings overseas. The strong dollar means those earnings are now going to look a lot leaner. The massive financial liquidity you are so confident of is drying up as we speak, or we would not be encountering the market turbulence we experienced this month.

    Interesting statistics. Where are you getting them? What do you mean "less than half of that wealth, is invested in anything that quotes prices in fiat currencies"? Intrinsically fiat currency is worthless of course. But money certainly trades against other money. What leads you to state that it has no price? Even worthless bitcoins have a price. And what do you consider a hedge against collapse?

  • Fool's Gold: The Perpetual Bubble [View article]
    James Montier's piece (linked to in this article) is no comfort for us in the current global economy. He insists that hyperinflation is not caused by money printing, but rather by shortages of goods. Well, in our current situation, commodities are trading down near their cost of production, and we will see cutbacks in production if those prices persist. This will result in the very supply shocks that Montier insists are the cause of hyperinflation.

    Have a nice day.

  • Commodities And The Dollar: This Chart Says It All [View article]
    The overpriced dollar threw the brakes on the global economy, and thus, global demand for commodities. I hope the FX speculators are happy, because obviously they have created supply/demand imbalances in most commodities such that we'll soon have cutbacks in supply and then shortages. This could well lead to hyperinflation.

  • Fool's Gold: The Perpetual Bubble [View article]
    Everything derogatory that can be said about gold can equally be said about fiat currencies. If gold is excluded as an investment, then you have to exclude cash as well. Furthermore, you would have to include all stocks that don't produce dividends, since they don't generate a future cash flow into the investor's pocket either. Add to that zero coupon bonds and bonds trading for zero or negative real yield. And of course, you also have to include every commodity, and every derivative that does not pay a dividend. Obviously your definition of an investment is very flawed if it excludes so many important investment classes.

    This article is no better than a troll piece designed to insult gold holders.

  • The Markets Believe 2015 Will Be A Bad Year For The Global Economy [View article]
    Eventually asset prices have to sort themselves out. The Fed has caused horrendous imbalances in the economy. Gold and oil must go up, and stocks and bonds must come down, and not by a little but a lot.

  • Falling Oil Price And Energy Stocks [View article]
    How is green energy "unproven"? You're going to wait until it dominates the market before you consider it "proven"? Why not show the same skepticism toward the obviously hyperinflated recoverable reserves numbers?
