    Very true, but at the end of the day it has everything to do with the american consumer...ironic that the american consumer has everything to do with the price of tea in china so to speak...

    It is actually my personal money, and I have been correct basically all the way down. At current prices with old CEO gone, looked like a good spec play and needed a bit of tech and risk in the retirement portfolio to balance out everything - too heavy in non risk & commodity assets.

    Looking at it all wrong. The new breed out there is a hybrid of the two. Square - see website here: http://bit.ly/QXlGa2

    They do the processing and give you free equipment. Now if they manufacture those, it buys time but it is still a race to the bottom.

    I try not to speculate on takeover rumors or takeovers themselves...leave it for those far wiser.

    Obviously you do not read all of the articles or comments. Just because I am directing readers away from certain stocks you think option trader? And why would that be a bad thing? It shouldn't be. I'm a capitalist, bottom line. There is only one way to play the markets and that is to always position yourself to make money or at a minimum preserve your capital.

    And see OCZ comments...obviously bullish there if we are looking to buy...

    The oil price story is short term...and the comments are directed at the pullback we discussed would occur and has and we were pretty darn accurate with that call. We can agree on offshore drilling and yes NeoMaterials was a good buy for MCP, but you need to stop thinking that everyone is trashing your stock and look around. On valuation, even if the company earned $1 with everything going perfectly, what do you think the P/E would be? Yea it would depend upon the growth rate and margins but $13 at this point does seem kinda fair. Last thing regarding Molycorp is their touting of the HREEs. Look around and listen to those people who are a lot smarter than I and have much more expertise in the REE field and you will get an idea of how hard it is to separate these from the ore, the concentrates, etc. Not easy and no one has ever done it on the first try that I am aware of. It takes years to figure out the ideal set-up.

    I always try to remember to click that disclosure and it did change recently on our end when we submit articles, but also it has changed from the readers' vantage as well. I looked back at a few real quick and saw where those showed up in the tagged stocks under my article section that they were in fact disclosed - the new spot is not at the bottom but rather the top. That should help.

    We also have traded in and out of SandRidge and Kodiak from time to time, but not when we did not disclose we might in our articles. If we did not mention say KOG in an article that day we may still have day traded it. But if we mentioned it, unless we stated we were looking at buying it in the 72 hr window then no action was taken. SA has rules on that.

    If you desire dates on all of those transactions (pertaining to EVEP and GPOR) then I suppose I can look up and include those in an article at some time in the future. I would only include the date, price, type of security, related option information if an option and % change from that time though.

    That is correct, both are in our research pile and looks like the wrong name was grabbed off with the similar ticker symbols. FNV is the one similar to SLW and ANV is an actual miner. We are bullish nearly all things gold right now as well as silver and so far like what we have read on both entities.

    We state when we buy shares, and say when we are adding. Look at our comments on GPOR and EVEP which are the two stocks which we have bought recently via stock transactions and options purchases. If we may go long we disclose that in the disclosure when the article is submitted, but market events can change our thinking. We alert readers when we are looking into situations (like coal which you are most concerned with) but we do not buy every recommendation we we give readers. Right now we are heavily into the resources, and after that we shall diversify out. For example, we like Gap and Ulta but have not personally owned it. Recommended buying those and have been bullish for some time, but because capital is elsewhere just never allocated that way. Also, we have a large portion of our portfolio allocated towards foreign stocks, not really traded here in the US so that would not do anyone any good here.

    Never went long that one, talked about going long OCZ and then decided to wait and carry that one in the retirement account instead.

    Sorry article comes out BEFORE market open. But pullback today in PMs when we were looking and it has had a huge run-up (both the stock and silver). Pullbacks are to be expected and are healthy.

    I think it is a bit over dramatic to say they will never get an upgrade. But the ML upgrade is noted. We were not getting down on VVUS shares, just stating for those who send us queries that we have no opinion on the EU side of things (it is hard enough to keep up with the FDA, let alone others around the globe!).

    Chinese stocks scare me...I have both made and lost money in them, but with recent events just try to steer clear. Better safe than sorry.
