  • Silver And Gold Miners For The Price Of A Lottery Ticket [View article]
    Find it xtremely difficult to make money in the mining sector and now understand when Warren Buffett once said he would not invest in commodity dependent equities. Supply/demand seems unpredictable and changes on a dime or a rumor constantly. Long Term we're going to be dead, while living I need more predictable outcomes.
    Sorry to be long AE, AUY, GG and NEM suffering losses of 30 to 60% and I thought I was buying bargains in 2012/early 2013.

  • Is It [Low D]? [View article]
    Funny, maybe - but it leaves Warren Buffett out in the cold altogether!

  • Invest With Smart Money And Management That Has Previously Rewarded Investors: Western Copper And Gold [View article]
    You mention Russ Beaty as the former owner of the Casino project. If it is such a promising prospective mine, why would RB sell and become a minority holder? He is one of the smartest guys in the mining business

  • Upstream Your Portfolio With 5 E&P MLPs Yielding 10% [View article]
    Very informative. Thank You. I've been investing in the sector for years. My concern now is: to many unqualified entities are pushing into the MLP sector. The Government will see a huge loss of tax revenue and intervene. Ala Canada in earlier years. All MLP's were disallowed and took a huge hit up to 80% on the exchanges.
    Also institutional money is increasing its stake, a warning sign for me. It is hard to exit the space after accumulating large gains due to the tax consequences. So, stay with it and let the heirs worry about it (easy to say at my age)

    One concern: when do you sell, where are the sell recommendations?

  • Will Genworth Financial Triple? [View article]
    Bought their long term care insurance 10 yrs. ago. Now filing a claim due to xtreme sickness convinced me the insurance is totally worthless should you ever need it. Thieves, Gangsters comes to mind. Exhausting and frustrating when you are unable to move on your own. I could not trust those people ever again.

  • Natural Resources Investor Sprott Resource Corp. Is Now A Big-Time Dividend Play [View article]
    Bought the IPO at C$ 2.50 and sold part at around $ 4. Dead money for the past 2yrs. is right. There were several unexplained short duration spikes early 2012 up to 4.70.
    The unexpected dividend announcement should stabilize price movements if nothing else. Smart mgmt. and asset mix, however I am never totally comfortable with this holding. Lack of timely info and lots of trading going on makes NAV hard to determine.

  • Crash Alert: A Toxic Mix Of Events Heading Into 2013 [View article]
    Cliff,
    I remember the times you were talking about specific investments like the Canadion energy trusts, MLP's etc. I followed you and made some good trades. It was fun. Now you are just trying to predict the future. Shouldn't we just stay with the facts and develop some good trades from it? Sorry I'll have to quit following. Simply don't have the time for this macro economic stuff.
    'Erstens kommt es anders, zweitens als man denkt' my grandma used to say. Smart woman.

    Cracker Barrel Chairman, Mr. Woodhouse just sold 63.5m shares = 20% of his holdings. Not a good sign.

  • This Week's Top 10 Market Movers: What Everyone Absolutely Must Watch [View article]
    Cliff, You're so right. The big question remains: where does one put
    his/her hard earned money to be protected from the oncomming trainwreck? Canada, Singapore, Skandinavia, others?
    Ag, Oil&Gas, Gold or maybe all of the above? I cannot believe what is going on in our beautiful country. As it now looks however - the disaster will continue. Obama bumper stickers outnumber Romney' by 2-1, at least where we live ( Pacific NW, USA)

  • Another Fast Growing Energy MLP For Income Investors [View article]
    Also curious: the GP of an MLP collects often huge fees ahead of unit holders. Should one not prefer MLP's w/out a GP, like say EPD?
    Second: with so many GDP's being created lately isn't there a chance the Govt. will make a change to their tax status as Canada did back in 2007?

  • Wealth Creators: Why Risk Buying Anything Else? Part Two [View article]
    Many Thanks for your fine writings. It is amazing how simple investing can be once all distractions (noises) are tuned out. Yours is the first articel I read on SA mentioning Value Line. It is my main source of info. since it reaches back 16 yrs. Surprisingly few stocks have a return of 100%+ in five years. you mentioned all my favorites and some new ones to research.
    EPD, CERN, I own for LT among others like NEU, TDG, PRGO, CF,NVO. Considering my age I"ve adopted a 5 yr. outlook

  • Why Cramer, Options Buyers And I All Love Hess [View article]
    Where else could Venezuela send their very heavy crude at a fair price? What % of net profit is contributed to this section of HES?
    Venezuela is the only reason I never purchased HES, even when I was tempted many times. Agree with the under valued story.

    Long: DE, CF, CIM, EPD, EW, PVR, SDRL - 60% cash
