  • Gold's Double Whammy Is In Play [View article]
    If returns were 9.3% and nobody could buy what do you think the return would have been if indeed people could buy?

  • Goldman Sachs cuts Microsoft (MSFT -3.4% to $29.25) to "sell" from "neutral" and says there is an 11% downside to the software giant's $27 12-month price target. Goldman cites falling PC sales and not enough traction in tablets and smartphones as a reason for the downgrade, which comes a day after IDC said that global PC sales slumped 13.9% in Q1. [View news story]
    This isn't about a rookie analyst having poor timing. This is about outright manipulation of a stock.

    What's with the two day run up of MSFT right before dismal PC news and Goldman downgrade? Smells fishy to me.

  • Don't Be A 'Doomsday Prepper' [View article]
    what's wrong with gold as an investment? It's the perfect short against the US Dollar and is a bet that there is no end in sight to accomodative monetary policy.

    It really has nothing to do with doomsday although I'll take gold over paper if that scenario were to ever unfold.

  • The SEC lets Reed Hastings off the hook for last July's Facebook post about Netflix's (NFLX) monthly streaming activity. The agency, which had sent Netflix a Wells notice in December, says it's OK for companies to "announce key information" via social media, provided "investors have been alerted about which social media will be used to disseminate such information." [View news story]
    even if he lying?

  • It Can Happen Here: The Confiscation Scheme Planned For U.S. And U.K. Depositors [View article]
    Confiscation is far better than a tax. It might actually get the people of this country to wake up to financial fraud we have been subject to since banks and investment banks merged.

    Good article, I applaud you for writing it!

    It's really very simple. On a long term basis gold is the perfect short against the US Dollar. It has been

  • BlackBerry 10 Sales Estimates Are A Joke [View article]
    Your title is correct, however the joke is you and others who are making stuff up. I'll wait to get official figures from the company.

  • Gold: A 'Fundamental' Perspective Of Bottoming 'Fundamentals' [View article]
    Gold is strongly correlated to the dollar, plain and simple. Sentiment, supply and demand, and technicals only give guys like you something to write about.

    More bullish for BBRY than AAPL in my opinion.

  • More on Goldman's buy-the-dip short-term outlook for commodities: Crude oil is attractive because of emerging-market demand, limited OPEC spare capacity and relatively low global inventories. Brent futures should continue to show backwardation, and "substantial pipeline de-bottlenecking" in North America should support WTI prices. Gold is another story: It's a flat-out short, with prices rising before falling. [View news story]
    I have no doubt this GS buy the dip recommendation is in support of of a large customer who wants to sell a large position.

    I don't think his comment requires any more elucidation. The fact you couldn't get his point was exactly his point. Bravo!

  • Lessons From Microsoft: An Outlook On Apple [View article]
    Like I said, I am looking for a compelling reason. While we could sit here and argue over whether those products are better than Apples (yes there are two sides to every argument), the bottom line is none of them are compelling enough for me to spend money to upgrade from what I have today.

  • Lessons From Microsoft: An Outlook On Apple [View article]
    I think your perspective is a good one. You could have used Cisco or Intel instead of Microsoft in your example.

    And to jswieter's comment above. I agree with you that Apple used to make great products. However we haven't seen that in quite some time. I am a long time Apple fan, I love their products but I don't see a compelling reason to upgrade my Ipad 2 or my Iphone 4s. I wish there was, I really do, but there isn't. Furthermore my confidence that there will be in the near future is waning, something that pains me to say.
