  • QE ends, "considerable time" language stays for now [View news story]
    I wasn't saying that it was sad that 15B was a "tiny dot in the economy" I was saying that adding 15B a month to stimulate an economy that is apparently doing quite well doesn't make any difference.

    I was implying that the numbers have become so big that people forget how hard it is to actually earn a good living.

    It is "sad" to see that dealing in Billions means nothing these days we are working in Trillions... running deficits larger than any of us will ever be able to pay back, the only real way to start getting these number back into reality is to get inflation running at a much higher level, and that will unleash a whole new set of problems on the everyday working man/woman that our economy really relies on.

    When you read this statement it's sad that it is true. Does 15 Billion a month even matter... Somehow it doesn't.

    Huge news, I hope they are beginning the buyback today... If the earnings are good at weeks end we may not see these levels again.

  • 3 Out Of Favor Small-Cap Stocks Which Could Double [View article]
    EBIX should be a double from here, I wish they would buy back a ton of shares as this could be a opportunity not only for shareholder, but also for the company to increase earnings per share at a major discount... Possibly the best aquisition they could make is themselves.

  • Hysterical Selling Makes Buying Ebix Compelling [View article]
    Ebix is a growth by aquisition company. The revenue is largly recurring but the growth is mainly by buying out other companies. Over the last 2 years there have been a lot of hot water around EBIX and they have not been buying other businesses. The purchase a month or so ago was a good sign that they are getting back on track and I believe you will likely see another fairly major purchase in the coming months.

  • Precious metals soar as Fed stays dovish and Americans head into Iraq [View news story]
    Yes a little strange the big jump in Gold and Silver. I would have expected a bounce like this to be joined with a market drop or adrop in the $.

    I to wonder if this is another dead cat bounce or the start of something a bit more real, I can not see the idea of a civil war in Iraq being the reasoning behind this.

    I believe we are nearing the end of QE and people are now starting to load up the bets on either a drop int he Markets or they are trying to hedge the gains from last year.

    Either way, with the end of QE I believe you will see a new dawn of gold. Believe it or not no one was expecting gold to drop when QE3 began but it did. It dropped a lot, now with about 3 months to go until it ends, I think you will see the markets getting ready for what comes next. The end of the free money QE "PUT"

  • Gold sniffs $1,300 after FOMC meeting [View news story]
    Lets see if this sticks this time. I would like to see this hold for and increase to see some long term momentum for gold.

    When QE3 started gold took a turn down, most thought it was going to go up to infinity, now QE is ending and I believe you may see the opposite start to happen... Many would see this being bad for gold, but I would argue that this will be a big move up for gold as it is starting to signal the end of the risk free ride in the markets.

    This was a very bold move for gold, the question for long term holders is will this keep going or is it another dead cat bounce? My bet is on it continuing the ride up for a while, but I have been wrong in the past, and will likely be wrong again in the future (just dont tell my wife that)

    Ebix currently is one of the best examples of stocks with potential to double even in a bloated market.

    You are correct in saying that there is limited downside risk from here and potential for signifigant returns in the short term and really great returns in the long term.

    Thanks for the article. I am going to look further into it, but will wait for it to come back down before purchase (if I purchase)... If it doesnt come back, good luck to all who own.

    Just sold CHR.b on TSX

    Still think company is great, but I was up big on it and they have been in a range for a while now. Took my profit at this point, but still feel company is strong with a great dividend.

    BMO slashes 5-year fixed mortgage rate to 2.99%

    For sure the economy is not really getting much better up here... I am assuming it is the same to my south!
