  • Freeport McMoran: How It Trades Against Copper [View article]
    Yes, the company does have some gold assets. After all, the company's full name is "Freeport McMoRan Copper & Gold."

    According to the company, estimated reserves include 102 billion pounds of copper, 40 million ounces of gold -- plus some molybdenum, silver, and cobalt.

  • Platinum vs. Palladium: Which Autocatalyst Is Better? [View article]
    Rvantass, yeah I sort of figured that grey = white in the precious metals space. I was just being a bit sarcastic. I have heard that some silver is actually plated with rhodium to make it more "silvery," so I guess that's a "white metal," too. Richard.
