    If speculators are buying gold to protect themselves if money becomes valueless, what difference does it make what price it is?

  • Gold: Where Are We Now? [View article]
    Nothing has changed in thousands of years of myths so why would an article from 2011 have to change. It is what it is, and those who are looking for direction may ponder it and have more choices on what to Be-lie-ve?

  • Pitney Bowes: A Good Buy Or A Bye Bye? [View article]
    It may not be a pretty picture right now but some of the best returns come from beaten down value stocks.

    There is a record 48,000,000 shares short, which means the shorts have to pay out the 8%+ dividend.

    If the company beats the estimates then they may run for cover and it could give an unexpected boost to the stock.

    At the current price of $17.60 there are a lot more riskier places to put money, as there are many "good" stocks that have run up, too much, too fast, in the past few months.

    I agree with your views with one caveat. If the whole market takes a big hit (which is looking more likely each day the market makes new highs) PBI may go below 17.35, but if it dips below that price on its own reports then as you say all bets are off.

    Perhaps, with PBI's low valuation, someone may come along and make a bid for them?
    They still generate enough cash for a predator to take them over? That said, never buy a stock solely on buyout possablities.

    There are no 100% safe investments ... just some are less riskier than others.

    Right on, the mailing system will be around a long, long time and even orders on-line have to be delivered to a destination. If PBI is earning over $2.00 in a slow economy, then when it picks up so may their earnings?

    57Seagull, PBI is not a stock to bet the ranch on and your small percentage is about the correct amount to not get too involved . It certainly a lot better bet than treasuries, for one quarters dividend of 2% is better that the 10 year yield on treasury bonds.
    PS; with a name like you have, do you spend a lot of time on the beach?

    Colin thank you for your reply. It is logic and reasoning that connects to our emotions that seldom works in the stock market or any other form of speculation. The gut cannot lie but accessing it & more importantly interpreting its feelings, can be a problem for anyone with a clever brain. Simplicity is the key that opens many doors of prosperity.

  • Hewlett Packard: Investing When The Risk To Return Odds Are In Your Favor [View article]
    VITX does not perform as I expected it to perform, so I advise taking your profit at $17.30 now and do not buy this one again ... IE except for experienced traders, who trade it short term, on a daily basis and understand the poor dynamics of this ETF.

  • Is It Time To Take Profits In Intel And Microsoft? [View article]
    They do a good job of dominating their sectors right now George. The macro view, may distort the micro view, in the short term and thus present a lower stock price.

    You make a lot of sense in what you say, however, all the news is out on Intel and I feel it has had its run for the time being.

    For the stock to move forward from here there needs to be a catalyst that will propel it forward. It's PE has moved from 9.5 to 11 and it may be a while before this can be expanded.

    Bear in mind, Microsoft and Intel are cyclical stocks that have cycles that go up and down. Intel has been on the up for two years and this quarter they lowered their estimates before they announced earnings.

    At this moment in time, I see too many forces that may hamper any significant move up. If my thoughts change in my empty mind, so will I.
