  • 70% Chance Silver Will Decline During March-April [View article]
    Quantum -- 70% is not 100%. What if silver rises 20-40% instead of dropping? For long-term investors, the biggest fear should not be seeing silver drop to $18, but missing out on a rally to $30 or $40. A L/T investor could save $2-3 by selling now and buying back later, but the risk is missing out on a $5-10 rally and then never buying back those positions at higher prices.

    Another way to look at it is that some investors have long-term positions that are held and trading positions that are flipped in and out of (as suggested by David Morgan).

    Up in the long-term. Even bears like Jeffrey Christian and the CPM Group believe silver will be higher in several years.

    Minus 7% if you only count the losing years.

    1.3% as you say if you consider winning and losing years.

  • Xinyuan Real Estate: 5 Things You Should Know Before You Buy [View article]
    In response to #1, I'd rather see the co. hire a foreign CFO instead of the locally-based professional. Gurnee was more than just the CFO. He was the spokesman who did the talking at the conference calls and the main contact person for foreigners who wanted to reach out to the company. This company needs somebody in upper management who can connect to the foreign investors. They don't have anybody like that right now.

  • Argentina Owes Silver Standard $75 Million [View article]
    I'll look into that, but I'm pretty sure they can't use the VAT receivables to offset or lower their corporate income taxes in Argentina.

  • David Morgan: The Silver Bottom Is In: Time To Hold, Add And Ride It Out [View article]
    Morgan also predicted silver would end 2013 at $26. And if I remember correctly that was lowered from his original 2013 target of around $40.
