  • Concerned About A Market Correction? Here Are 5 Mitigation Tools [View article]
    Interesting article and some good points. I usually don't like leveraged ETFs, but will have to study for hedging strategy with TMV. As far as TVIX, that has been a poor hedge for a while. Volatility has not been as explosive as it has in the past, so TVIX has been pretty flat. And, as with all leveraged funds, it can go down quickly and there is always the threat of a reverse split. Why not go with something like SDS if the desire is a bear market fund?

  • Update: Westport Innovations Slashes 2014 Forecasts [View article]
    You indeed raised concerns over the summer about this stock. Any prospects of this company being bought, presumably for its intellectual property/developments?

    Nope, you pretty much pegged this one. Now its time for all of the SA contributors to step forward and support their cheers. And if not, perhaps they should retire from contributing....

    Agreed. A lot of angst has been generated in precious metals investing, so I wanted to be sure that was clarified. Any plans to review other ETFs? Or will you limit your review only to GLD and SLV because you refer to those funds in your articles? Thanks.

    Thanks for bringing these concerns about the GLD fund to our attention. Concerns about that particular fund have generated comments on SA for years. However, is it fair or even accurate to clump all of "these ETFs" together, which implies the inclusion of the other precious metal ETFs listed in the article header? Should we assume that all of them, including the IAU, the new OUNZ fund, SGOL, or even the Sprott funds have similar hazards? I think some clarification might be warranted. Thanks again.

    Thanks for an informative article. While I still have doubts about the competency of SD management, I appreciate your analysis and am hopeful that your conclusion is correct- that this stock will improve in time. I just hope that it is in my lifetime!

  • Chesapeake Energy: Barron's Thinks Earnings Can Double Over Next Few Years [View article]
    Thanks, Bret. Finally, some hopeful news about this stock. It has been in a funk for a while. Ex-dividend date is approaching (Oct. 13), so now may be a good time to add to my position. Long CHK.

  • New Low In Silver; Lower Low In Gold Still To Come [View article]

    Does SA track or rank articles according to the greatest number of readers or reader comments? I've got to believe that this article would be near the top of such a list.

    Please keep us advised. GLD seemed to have broken 119 with some conviction (presently at 117.50). If it does not rally above 123 as you note, then it is likely to remain down and perhaps go lower, yes? Which could lead GLD down to your 105 target range. Thanks.

  • Deere CEO: Corn Prices Will Come Back [View article]
    Dr. Duru-

    Please continue to keep readers apprised about this ETF. The "bottoming" process has been slow, and it is helpful to have someone else helping to keep track of it. Thanks.

  • The Time For Caution Has Arrived [View article]
    Bret-

    Always appreciate your articles. I agree that S&P just over 2,000 has presented resistance, so caution is in order for a possible pullback.

    As I add this to your prior articles and recommendations over the last couple of months, I conclude the following: take the present opportunity to sell high momentum stocks like TSLA and others that have made gains, and retain blue chips like AAPL. That makes sense. But what about the energy sector, whether oil (E&P, refining, drilling, etc.) or natural gas? They are down, hopefully approaching bottoms, and may be buying opportunities. And what about some of the biomed plays (the "shotgun" plays) that may not have played out yet? I'm curious how you are handling those in light of your present concerns of a market correction. Thanks!

    Thanks, John. I appreciate your reply. But I think you have noted a good investment strategy if I want to go long (or stay long, as is the case). The author of this article said she would provide a trading strategy based on "logic". I'm not seeing it.
