  • Chinese Housewives Vs. Goldman Sachs: No Contest [View article]
    I believe Warren Buffet's vehicle - Berkshire Hathaway - has never paid a dividend. By fishfryer (and others) criteria that means it's not an investment. Perhaps it's a barbarous relic?

  • What It Really Costs To Mine Silver: The Hecla Mining First Quarter Edition [View article]
    On billiejones' point, the other thing to bear in mind is that it's arguable (likely) that HL's costs were depressed in prior years due to its failure to adequately maintain the Luck Friday shaft. So, the extraordinarily high costs over the past year or so merely reflect underspend in prior years.

  • COTS Report: New All-Time High For Gold Shorts [View article]
    Cloud Expert,

    my understanding is that Germany did not request its gold back from the Bank of England, so there is no question that "England delayed". Germany requested all its gold held in France as there's no point in keeping it there (France uses the Euro like Germany) and I'm unaware that France had already acted - what's your source for this information?

    One can only speculate why the USA is taking so long to provide Germany's gold - the favourite 'guess' being it doesn't have it as it's been leased out and cannot be readily recovered.

  • Precious Metals Buyers' Guide, Part II: When To Sell [View article]
    In case readers are in doubt, the Goldline referred to is, I assume, not (a trading name of Baird & Co a reputable London bullion dealer).
