  • The Sell-Off In Gold Has Become Plain Silly [View article]
    Ever heard of the Bank of International Settlements (B-I-S)?

    These private Banksters run the Banking Cartels from behind the curtains.

    They are the shadow government of the global economy that tells the International Monetary Fund (I-M-F) and the World Bank what to do and of course by extension the Central Banks; including ultimately the Federal Reserve.

    It is in fact ignored by mainstream that the price of gold and silver as well as the monetary exchange rates are controlled and set by the IMF, but somehow that escapes public scrutiny.

    Your playing a rigged game. The policy to destroy the global middle class was set in motion years ago. It makes perfect sense that when the middle class moved their wealth to commodities that these Banksters would invoke a shift in policy to steal that wealth wherever it was stored.

  • Zogenix Is Vastly Over-valued Even With FDA Approval [View article]
    Do you have any idea how many drug addicts would be willing to pay through the nose for zohydro?

    This drug will be the next oxycontin according to the critics.

    You forget the global market. The FDA does not rule the world.

  • Political Antics Won't Hurt The Markets - Republicans Better Beware [View article]
    Your "Green Eggs and Ham" comment regarding the pretend fillibuster gives you away. You became a boob headed talking point dupe when you made that comment from my point of view.

    The man talked for 21 hours and the liberal media focused on a very short portion of his talk when he was reading a bedtime story to his children over the television. Obviously you did not watch, or listen to any of the many hours he spoke truth to power; and of course the liberal media ignored all of it instead focusing on that to pervert all he said out of context.

    Republicans beware? Another tell.

    Obamacare a law because a Partisan Congress passed a law using constitutional due process suggesting Congress has never changed a law ever. You must be joking. A law advertised with lies from the get go that people were told had to be passed before anyone could see what was in it. A law written by insurance company lawyers.

    That was three strikes and puts you out of the game from where I sit in the stands.

    Your entire article stinks. Enjoy the penny you made having me waste my time.

  • Beware Buyers: 12 Reasons Why The Current Sky High Natural Gas Price Isn't Here To Stay [View article]
    I got in DGAZ @ $2.83 a few minutes ago. Great article.

    Even if by some stretch of the imagination it does go down further you risk missing the bottom if you never pick an entry. The upside is far too tempting at these prices.

    James Sutton, client portfolio manager of the J.P. Morgan Natural Resources fund, agreed, telling CNBC: "The level where we think the gold mining industry will struggle is $1,200."

    It will allow the big players to buy up the gold cheap and as well take over the companies with the best real estate for mining. A well engineered policy to grab yet another vast chunk of wealth from what is left of the global middle class.

  • How Much Should Twitter Be Worth And Should You Invest In It? [View article]
    I swear it is becoming increasingly difficult to tell the difference between shameless day/swing trade "Pump and Dumpers" and delusional TWTR investors suffering from "gold fever".

    No one in their right mind can honestly make a valid argument that TWTR is trading at this valuation because of some "down the road" potential given what we know about how this IPO was done with such a small float to make the stock easily manipulated. The steady stream of media hype to go with it tells you that some very influential forces are behind this pump and dump scam.

    The only type of person who would consider buying TWTR at the current price to hold long would have to be the type of person who would fall for one of those Nigerian e-mail scams.

    Everyone I know that is bullish about TWTR on StockTwits is glued to their trading platform all day every day making sure they are ready to pull the plug and dump the shares on a moments notice. Others are just day trading it.

  • How Much Should Twitter Be Worth And Should You Invest In It? [View article]
    The real reason that TWTR is trading at a premium has been mostly ignored. I only saw one analyst address it on CNBC.

    It has to do with the way the IPO was handled by the underwriters.

    Essentially the value of the stock is being manipulated and controlled on a temporary basis until the lock-up on insider shares begins to expire on February 15th.

    Evidently the arrangement was that they would keep the price of shares over valued to give the insiders time to dump shares at a premium. Since only 81 million shares were pumped into the public float keeping the price up is fairly easy. Especially given they are making it somewhat difficult to short shares. There are constant shortages of shortable shares available to sell.

    Have you noticed the insane spread TWTR trades at? The MM's are making a killing. Is it any wonder they would be more than willing to cooperate?

    Once upon a time a corporation called the East India Company pressed the English crown into taxing their colonists to protect their profits.

    Today the Insurance corporations are having the government force us to buy their product and calling the penalty for not getting it a tax.

    If you don't pay the tax they confiscate your home with liens and your tax refund check.

  • Grim Near-Term Prospects For Zogenix [View article]
    I don't own any shares, but I have in the past. Been following this one well over a year.

    A simple truth that neither the pharmaceutical industry, or government regulators with their abuse scare tactics won't admit to is that every one of the major tamper resistant drugs including Opana and Oxycontin DO NOT WORK.

    The new formulations to make them tamper resistant ruined their efficacy for legitimate patients. My own brother who was taking Oxycontin for years stopped taking them and opted instead for immediate release hydrocodone. He tried Opana first, but the new formula was no good.

    I personally think there is a better than 50/50 chance Zohydro will in fact be approved. You have to remember that the rest of the world's population are not as stupid as most Americans and even if it is not approved for sale in the USA it can still market it to the rest of the world. A recent change in regulations allows for that.

    As a for instance the Canadian Government has no intention of pulling the non-tamper resist formula's and plenty of the old versions will make their way across the border.

    Drug addicts and abusers always find ways to get their fix and even the new tamper resist formula's can be defeated. The FDA knows that for a fact and will factor that in to their decision.

    The new REM's the FDA put out is extremely strict and I do think it will be the tipping point for approval of zohydro. It was also the reason for the delay in my opinion.

    See for yourself.

  • Short This Commodity Next Week [View article]
    @ Rico Kastilani ... He is not shorting DGAZ. He is long DGAZ. You don't have to use margin anyway. Anyone who is holding DGAZ now is perfectly safe as the drop in NG prices will be soon, sudden, and massive. Bears are scaling in. The lower it goes the more they buy.

    You don't have to buy the entire position in DGAZ all it once. Divide the number of shares you want by 6 and buy in 6 different times as it goes down and back up.

  • Recent Gold Price Action Misunderstood [View article]
    The authors premise is completely without merit.

    Particularly China's joke down grade.

    It went down for a number of reasons.

    The massive dump of paper by JP Morgan and their manipulative cry for everyone to "sell sell sell"

    Even still it did not go down that much.

    When it went back up it was just recovering more, or less to the same levels it was before the meaningless movements during the shutdown.

    Many people merely took there money off the table to wait things out. I know I did.

  • Peter Schiff Has It Totally Backwards - Gold Is Not Going 'To The Moon' [View article]
    @ Robert Wagner; you said... if QE didn't generate inflation at its peak, it is unlikely to generate inflation with its ending.

    You sound like someone who hires a gopher to do your shopping for you. You evidently have not been to a grocery store these past 10 years. Presumably you don't ever pay for your gas at the station either.

    Gallons of Milk and Gasoline were $2 and $1 back in 2001.

    Now it is $4 and $3

    If that is not inflation due to a loss in purchasing power due to quantitative easing I don't what else to call it. Prices on just about everything have drasticly increased.

    The reality is that prices have doubled and trippled over the past 10 years.

    Not saying that gold will go any higher than it is. That is a whole different issue, but don't make your argument using a laughable premise that we have not seen any inflation due to the insane amount of money printing the FED has engaged in.

    Ending QE should cut down on inflation. What else it will cause that will negatively impact the economy remains to be seen. It is possible that the result will cause the FED to go back to QE. If that happens it is reasonable to conclude it will cause gold to start going back up. We simply do not know what is coming yet.

    A little known fact about the members and the relatively small number of employees of the Bank of International Settlements. It is written into international law that they pay no taxes to any government and they are immune from any form of prosecution for anything related to their financial policies and actions.

    They can do anything they want to do and not a soul on earth can do a darn thing about it. They are in effect above the law.

    It is a very interesting subject to delve into if you ever have the time.

    Members of the B-I-S are old money passed down from generation to generation. These are the people who gave us two world wars and probably every one in between and since.

  • Spyglass Resources: With A 15.5% Yield The Market Wrongly Expects Certain Failure [View article]
    @ highvoltage Again you may be right and you may be wrong.

    There is another high profile merger called Spyglass. They bought out MGM studio's. The golf course joke your talking about is irrelevant. It seems to me your a pissed off basher and your incapable of discussing the positive aspects of this merger because you got burned. You somehow blame Avenex and Pace management for ripping you off. Well both those companies BOD's are gone now.

    Buchanan and his management team who are now running the show did not screw you over. He does have a history of making investors money if you go all the way back to his time at Provident and follow his history.

    Bashers like to focus on his performance with Charger and point to his seeming failure over its last year to deliver, but ignore the fact that he was actually able to parlay Charger investors from owning shares in a tiny company that was in danger of going bankrupt into now owning shares in a medium sized company that pays a dividend.

    I think the fact that Buchanan was able to integrate Charger into this merger bodes very well for the future of Spyglass. It indicates that this management knows how to succeed and get themselves out of the worst of jams and back in the saddle.

    The fact that he did it at the expense of Avenex and Pace shareholders means nothing to new investors who want to make money. Buchanan's job was to protect the interests of Charger shareholders. Not Avenex, or Pace shareholders. Seems he did a good job. No reason not to think he won't do the same thing for Spyglass shareholders now that he is in charge.

    I was a Charger shareholder at the time of the merger. I am very happy with what Buchanan did. I have no reason to be unhappy that he is running the show now and furthermore I have every reason to believe my investment is in the hands of a guy that will do whatever it takes to succeed even if that means screwing over the shareholders in two other (now defunct) companies that I don't care about.

    It seems we have a CEO that is a SHARK and if he can eat up other companies to make his shareholders money then I say all the more power to him.

    Business is not meant to be "lovey dovey". It is a cutthroat world we live in. Investing in stocks is gambling. You lost. Get over it. Take a break until you do so when you come back in you have a level head that is not twisted with negative emotions over your losses. Focus on winning the next time and forget the loss from the last time.

    I hope everyone understands what a pump and dump is. The media is pumping NG in order to dupe retail into buying while the big boys make their exit. Will Natural Gas Prices Stay High? Media Commentary Misses The Point (again).
