  • A Primer On Risk for the Closed End Fund Investor [View article]

    Thanks for the comment. We have to remember that GGN does not hold physical gold, silver, or oil. They just hold the miners and producers so in the recent sell off gold went one way (up) and the miners went the other (down) in price. Also as GGN writes covered calls they will cap their gains on stocks. So if they sold LEAPS on GG at $45 for example and the stock trades at $53 then they are all done at the $45 level and wont see anymore gain than that. I guess what I am trying to say is that an investment in GGN is not an investment in gold or oil. They are just an income vehicle that is related to that sector.

  • Salvage Operations in the Biopharma Wreckage [View article]
    Thanks for the reply Michael. Its all comes down to see if the FDA will buy off on the newly provided information. I know you are confident, but when you throw the FDA into the mix anything can and will happen. Trading at a $1.33 there is not that much risk and lots of upside potential, but I am just not ready to throw anymore cash into ARNA.

    combat snoopy,

    I also share your feeling about the FDA. Some of their decisions are questionable at best.
