  • 3 Reasons Why A New Bottom For Gold Will Likely Prove Elusive For Now  [View article]
    So I wonder if anyone is considering the correlation of a robust return to the housing market (read here "speculative investment") to a softening interest in gold, mining stocks, and gold indexes?

  • Coinstar (CSTR) and Verizon (VZ) will launch Redbox Instant in an invitation-only beta phase this month with an official rollout planned for next year. For $8 a month, users can stream movies and select up to 4 DVDs per month from Redbox kiosks. An online store will also offer movies for rental or purchase. For now, the service appears to analyst to be only a minor threat to Netflix (NFLX), although the potential for bigger things down the road remains.  [View news story]
    I believe that is streaming AND 4 DVD/month at kiosks. That said, streaming content is an issue and will take significant capital and time to catch up to where Netflix is already.

    Actually, Dr. Paul is a medical doctor who has chosen to use his time as a representative of the people of his state. While I appreciate your writings on economics and money supplly, I find your caricature of Dr. Paul outlandish, given his body of work. Which is surprising given your usual thoughtful assessment of market conditions.

    "demagogue", "appealing to the worst instincts", "nefarious conspiracies", "sort of Gospel"?

    I may not agree with everything he supports but out of all of the politicians-of-the-night he is one of the few who stands on his belief system and committment to the cause of equitable governance, rather than pandering to the wealthy Special Interests who have bought and paid for the votes of our "representatives".

    One last point: With Dr. Paul you know where he stands, and you know where he will be standing. Unlike the shifting sands promises of "Victory in Iraq" on one side, and "Hope and Change" on the other, Dr. Paul's stands are those that you can plant a flag in.

    I assume by what you have written that you believe should oil drop so too will the economy. Why do you believe that? Does that mean that because oil prices rose the economy did as well?

    Rather than viewing this relationship as an absolute how about simply acknowledging that in the absence of a major market profile change, such as the payment of a dividend, their is a relationship between cash & price. Not causal, but indicative. There are way stupider reasons for selling or buying than this; at the least this relationship would be a way to reduce the risk of an entry or exit point for the stock.
