  • Focus Graphite Is Highly Undervalued And Positioned To Profit From Rising Graphite Demand [View article]
    I have been in Focus for about a year. Price today is about where it was then. It's a bit thinly traded which can be a problem unless it takes off.

    I agree Warren is not quite as he seems. Ice cream eating slightly eccentric or ultimate insider? I will go with the insider.

  • Tasman Metals: At Just $1, This Is The Only Rare Earth Stock That I Am Buying [View article]
    Flinders was supposed to start production is month. It's stock has been rising for awhile for nice returns. Too bad about the merger it seemed a good fit.

    The run up and subsequent downturn seemed to coincide with the merger speculation with Finders. I've been a holder for about a year and it's in about the same spot. Hopefully I'll live to see the returns you speak of.
    What happened to the merger? Just didn't work out or something more nefarious?

    They seem to be aimed at some kind of "Urban Cool". Too bad they don't have jobs.

  • Plight Of The Fed Model [View article]
    Good stuff Trader,

    Hmmm ... Let's see if I got this right. Currently the top marginal rates are around 39% http://bit.ly/1idDavy . Executives can easily bump into that bracket. They are also compensated with stock options to give incentive to do well. Long term capital gains are at 15% http://bit.ly/1lS6h8x . Salary is only one part of the executives compensation http://bit.ly/1lS6hoN .
    All of these options has a dilutive effect on the stock. To counterbalance the dilution companies buy back shares supposedly with extra profits. With interest rates so low it behooves the company officers to borrow to buy back shares. The interest also has tax implications. So low interest rates and tax codes have distorted stock prices by the share buy back programs companies use to compensate executives. I also see a conflict of interest in that the directors that vote on the buy back plans are also the ones compensated by it. Am I wrong?
