  • MagnaChip: Very Attractive Risk-Reward - 58% Upside With Little Downside [View article]
    kl who are some of mx competitors? how are their competitors business performing?

    various manufacturing-related business practices that facilitated premature revenue recognition on unfinished goods, semi-finished goods, and inventory manufactured in advance that affected revenue and sales targets;
    various sales practices that resulted in overstated revenue for particular reporting periods, including premature shipment of products to and pulled-in orders from distributors and customers at quarter end;
    cash payments to certain vendors, using expense and capital expenditure accounts at the Company, that (i) the vendors used to purchase products from certain distributors; (ii) the distributors then paid to the Company for those products; and (iii) in turn were applied to aged accounts receivable;
    various improper inventory reserve accounting, non-recurring engineering (NRE) accounting, warranty reserve accounting and capitalization of repair expenses as capital expenditures that affected gross margins;
    improper allocations of selling, general, and administrative costs ("SG&A") that understated such costs and smoothed the SG&A-to-revenue ratio trend;
    improper deferral of outsourcing and free sample expenses that smoothed expense trends;
    improper revenue recognition on a gross rather than net basis for certain products and customers; and
    various undisclosed business practices and related concessions for distributors and customers (including credit limit increases, payment term extensions, provision of free samples, future discounts, and stock rotations), with distributor and customer consent, that affected the Company's sales.

  • Insatiable Demand For Gold And Silver From Both East And West [View article]
    One time event on the big discount for CEF? BS. Please show us the facts. Maybe u need to put up.

    <Your comments about the miners are completely disingenuous. Who cares how they run their businesses? As in any other industry, some will win, and some will lose.> so lets see your typical holding period is weeks or months?

    <<The entire PM mining industry is on life support because no one wants to buy what they are digging out of the ground. You seem to have missed that.>> The PM miners are on life support because of gross mismanagement across the board, a weaker pm price and overpayment of acquisitions.

    CEF has had discounts as high as 15-20% in the past. These large discounts usually occur when sentiment for pms are near or at rock bottom. Hint a good time to buy pm's.

  • Here's Why Gold Prices Have Been Declining [View article]
    If gold is not a store of value why did Nixon close the gold window in 1971? why not just trade it all way for all those redeeming dollars?
    The main idea is to buy valuable assets when they are extremely out of favor. That's how u increase wealth long term. Please king dollar keep going up and gold going down. King dollar vs ancient metal. Make my decision easier.
    Avi is right things peak at max complacency or bottom at max pessimism.

    <bondholders could choose to accelerate bond repayments under the bond indenture if the company fails to deliver its financial statements by Feb 14, 2015>

    anyone make an assessment with such dollar strength recently?

    shareholders probably would hope for a doubled down effort to resolve this soon before the deadline. an economic slowdown could hit the shares further like in'11.

  • Fairfax Financial's Prem Watsa - There Is A Large Disconnect Between Financial Markets And Actual Economic Fundamentals [View article]
    We are approaching Peak CBer lunacy. There is near unanimous belief becoming mainstream that CBers using easy money can do "whatever it takes" to solve our financial problems. Doing "whatever it takes" is dangerous. I am expecting the unexpected so do not be surprised that 90% of the population get some e-dollars transferred into their checking to spend or that food stamp card recipients gets triple the monthly allocation for a period of time. So any strong deflation may be short lived and will be followed by "Peak" Central Banker Lunacy. Having said this it would be wise to have more liquidity than normal now imo and also looking to purchase some gold or silver trying to catch a low. we can only hope it drops alot more for a real good purchase.

    Close to unanimous belief soon that money printing can solve all financial problems. we are approaching peak CBer lunacy.
    The mining industry is lead by mostly a bunch of capital incinerators. Most of them deserve to be put out to pasture never again allowed to burn up more shareholder funds.
