  • If Runaway Inflation Is Coming, Why Isn't Gold Rising? [View article]
    Thanks to all those who pointed out the inconsistencies in the author's analysis.
    Hope those reading the original article will also take the time to read the comments - - without these, investors could be led astray.

    Keep up the good work, guys (& gals).

  • Colossus Is Weighing On Sandstorm Siblings [View article]
    If my memory serves me correctly, didn't SAND write down Asset valuations in each of the past 2 quarters, thus taking losses?

    And if so, these were prior to the Colossus event, which certainly looks like another impairment write-down for Q4.

    Doubt SAND slide has bottomed yet.

  • Sandstorm Gold: Does The Recent Pullback Present A Buying Opportunity? [View article]
    Appreciate all the informative comments above - - - just one question:

    Seems to me that SAND share price took some drops ahead of the Colossus event, when it wrote down some investments and took hits to its quarterly P & L statements (pls correct me if I am wrong here).

    If correct, then this Colossus event is just an additional straw on the camel's back. IMHO, SAND is near bottom, tho no telling how long it will take to recover.

  • Is There a Connection Between Stocks and the Money Supply? [View article]
    IMHO, all this money is pushing up the Dow to an unsustainable level:
    PE ratios too high
    MACD in bad territory
    Stock prices rising, but on declining volume.

    All in all, not a good omen.
    hang onto your contras

  • Is There a Connection Between Stocks and the Money Supply? [View article]
    These comments all lead to another premise, that of the PPT's activity:

    If it is true that the Plunge Protection Team is "supporting the market" - - - and since they do not publish their minutes, we have to assume that they might be doing so, sub rosa - - - then money supply is obviously growing from this exercise - - - and will continue to do so so long as Dow 10,000 stays as the support-level target.

  • Obama's Economic Policy: Another Bunt [View article]
    Not so stupid - - - give them enough time and eventually their ownership of our debt will allow them to control us (to a greater extent than they already do).

  • Daily State of Markets: Potpourri of Uncertainty [View article]
    All good points, Dave!

    Let me add one more on the side of caution:

    You said the market remains "data dependent" - - - and the fear for many of us is the fact that much of this data is produced by the government, mostly bureau(cracies) controlled by the Executive branch.

    Their ability to push out numbers (GDP growth, employment, etc) that impact daily investor attitudes, and then issue corrective revisions 3 months later just adds to the uncertainty that is keeping this market on its teeterboard. IMO, we can expect more roller-coaster 3 digit swings right up until the votes are counted in November.

    Maybe we should just widen the Tombigbee.
    That was the biggest boondoggle of its time, but few would remember it now.

  • Obama's Economic Policy: Another Bunt [View article]
    These short-term fixes, all political in nature, will never be enough to counter-balance the mounting number of negatives - - - those domestic ones already in sight, and all the others on foreign shores.

    Investors and traders had better prepare for a long dose of stagflation.

  • Faith in the Markets? It's All in the Numbers [View article]
    Good job - - - a crash MBA course in Corp Finance.

    When you expand this article, you might want to mention the use of Present Value and Discounted Cash Flow as other evaluation tools.

    Scott, this is a great read - - - won't win you any kudos from the talking heads (MSNBC, et al), but you have done a true service to the less-initiated who need just this sort of guidance.

    Keep it flowing.

  • 10 Reasons This Is Not a Sustainable Rally [View article]
    Until we get a confirmation from the President's Working Group for Financial Markets (aka the PPT: Plunge Protection Team) that it has not and is not buying and/or selling Index Futures or ETF's, or otherwise running funds into and out of the markets, there will always be a suspicion that manipulation is taking place - - - and that is not a confidence-builder.

    Pejavie,
    Wish I had a dollar for the number of times I have requested SEC to investigate this - - - but I guess silence was to be expected.
    After all, it is just another Federal Bureau(cracy), and they all seem to bend with the political winds that emanate from the Executive Branch
