  • Wayfair Doubles Down On Poisoning Its (And Its Partners') Customers [View article]
    question for Whitney Tilson: I presume that you bought items from Wayfair that were shipped to your NY office, right? Are those items subject to CARB2 restrictions? Under what jurisdiction?

    We buy products every day that have warnings on them that they contain products that are known to be carcinogens by the state of California - but we're not buying them in California, so it's not illegal.

  • Did COMEX Just Receive A Physical Gold Bailout From The Feds? [View article]
    it's so much worse than you think, James, as Avery's core base for his entire lunatic conspiracy rant is based on multiple misunderstanding on how the COMEX delivery process works. Amazingly, with almost 50 comments so far, his poor readers have no idea either, and think this is a "good" post! Shocking. sad. That's the state of precious metals blogging for you...

    Deliveries aren't made on some allocation basis in proportion to % of open interest: they're made at the choice of the shorts anytime during the delivery month. When Avery writes:

    "COMEX rules require that deliveries be assigned in proportion to the number of shorts a particular clearing member has open, for itself and its customers, as of the day the futures contracts mature. If the clearing member is delivering on behalf of a client, the gold is listed on the delivery report as having come from the member's "customer account." Even if JPM is engaged in proprietary trading and market-making at COMEX, it is virtually impossible for it to have ended up assigned to almost half of all deliveries."

    he is blatantly illustrating that he has no idea what he is talking about. As you wrote in your comment: this is fact - not something that can be debated. Avery simply doesn't understand how it works, so he goes off on a ghost story, complete with quotes from generations past, of course..

    It will come as a surprise to exactly no one who understands how the COMEX actually operates in the real world - not the goldbug fantasy world - that shorts who needed to make deliveries transferred gold from eligible to registered and did so. It's how the COMEX operates.

    your information is patently false. You cannot lie to the readers here and then tell them that they haven't done the research. you are making up numbers.

  • David Slays Goliath: Vringo Awarded Billion-Dollar Victory Over Google [View article]
    Kevin - aren't the NOLs small? from the most recent 10q:

    "As of December 31, 2012, we had approximately $55,000,000 in aggregate total net tax loss carryforwards ("NOL") for U.S. federal state and local purposes expiring 20 years from the respective tax years to which they relate (beginning with 2006 for the Legal Parent and 2011 for I/P). The Tax Reform Act of 1986 imposed substantial restrictions on the utilization of NOL and tax credits in the event of an ownership change of a corporation. Thus, in accordance with Internal Revenue Code, Section 382, our initial public offering, financing activities, as well as the Merger, has significantly limited our ability to utilize such NOL’s and credit carryforwards."


    "The deferred tax asset in respect of the remaining tax loss carryforwards has been offset by a valuation allowance as in our opinion it is more likely than not that the tax loss carryforwards will not be utilized in the foreseeable future."

  • Vringo Verdict And Future Royalties Against Google On Shaky Ground [View article]
    Alan, this is the half-a-billion dollar question: DOES the jury's award bear on future royalties.

    ie, will the Judge extrapolate a royalty base that the Jury used, as Dan surmised above, or will the judge be anchored toward the 20.9% number argued at trial.

    I don't know the answer, but I'd love to hear insights on it...

  • SLV Inventory Hits Record High [View article]
    Milwaukee - SLV accepts only London Good Delivery Bars - which is the standard for global silver. You can't just take bars from your basement and deliver them to SLV - they're not London Good Delivery.

    PSLV does the same thing by the way - London Good Delivery Bars -

    but in any case, I think that PEhlrich's reply to you below is spot on.

    Do you think that PSLV is a fraud too, just out of curiosity? because their prospectus has the same stuff in it. It's all standard.

    Milwaukee - of course I've read that piece from Jeff. He doesn't seem to understand how asset trading works. he writes:

    "Anyone can walk up to these bullion banks, at any time, hand them the prevailing “spot” price, and buy your silver ETF."

    huh? sure - anyone can buy my ETF - at the price I'm willing to sell it to them - which is up to me...

    but what's especially terrifying is that all it takes is for one person to write "BLYTHE IS PAYING 50% CASH PREMIUMS" and boom - it's accepted as fact, quoted by all the other silver bloggers who have no idea what they are talking about, and reinforced...

    Streetmoney, it's not surprising that you don't understand COMEX delivery procedures. The shorts have until the end of the month to deliver - that's how it works. Expiration is at the END of the month. the Shorts decide when to make delivery within that time period.

    It's clear from the way you quote SLV's change in inventory that you're a Harvey Organ disciple. Surely you understand that there are no cash settlements, right? That's another pipe dream made up by people who don't understand futures trading. See, the March future still trades. This gives traders a chance to close out their positions before expiration. Which is what happens every day, a little bit. Harvey doesn't understand that very simple concept, and makes up the RIDICULOUS assertion that JPM is paying off longs with huge cash premiums... ummm .yeah - right - because that makes sense - they'd pay $50 per ounce to close out a short when they can buy it back on the Comex for $35... right... THE CONTRACT STILL TRADES! get it?

    There's plenty of silver out there. If you read my article, you'd understand that. And oh - SLV doesn't acquire and ship any silver - but surely you understand that, right? The APs bring it to them.

    they largely do not ship any silver at all. They move it from YOUR pile in the vault to SLV's pile in the vault. Tom Lydon explained this today:

    donald, I explained that in my recent post:

    Sprott designed his purchase to take 10 weeks. he bought FORWARDS... then he trumpeted how long it was taking, yet that's how he designed it!

    Dallas -
    I stopped publishing my articles on SA because I decided that monkeys like you weren't worth trying to educate.

    I just wrote a monumental post about PSLV -

    but it's REALITY based - you probably wouldn't enjoy it. carry on.
