    AAPL hater. Personal bias.

  • Apple -7%; FQ3 gross margin tops guidance, China sales a strong point [View news story]
    Really? Going sideways to up is not going to kill any investors or traders unless they are reckless. Buying into stocks that could be cut in half on a bad report is definitely riskier. Yes they have been favored so far this year, but if the dollar gets weaker, sentiment could turn the other way.

    Is that what happened last quarter?

    If the previous quarter was so great, why couldn't AAPL even rally on that? I'm not making a bear case here, because I think the stock should've rallied on those numbers. The fundamentals for AAPL keep getting better, while the point of the "whisper numbers" is to cause a wash out in the overly leveraged retail traders by giving the institutions an opportunity to knock it down short-term.

  • Allied Nevada Gold files for Chapter 11 [View news story]
    Since I don't understand legalise, my best guess is that the bondholders were converted into shareholders, which diluted previous shareholders. Perhaps the company as finally solved its debt problems by giving bondholders 90% of the equity?

  • Will Gold's Spectacular Rally Continue? [View article]
    What do you think will happen to the economy if the Fed raises interest rates? We do not know yet if the "recovery" can sustain itself without additional QE. They are assuming price controls on interest rates alone are enough to "fix" the economy. The only thing price controls have been known to do is cause severe economic imbalances, which will eventually need to correct. The only reason gold isn't already $10,000 is that investors still have confidence that the Fed can centrally manage the economy through price controls and monetary inflation. Once that confidence is lost, there will be nothing stopping gold from going much higher. No one gets a free lunch forever, even if you control the world's reserve currency.

  • Caterpillar: A Buy Below $80 A Share [View article]
    I think it's a good buy here if you have a long-term horizon. It could bottom anywhere from here to the upper 70's. Boeing is not even in the same universe as Caterpillar. They are totally independent investment theses.

    Investing is always at your own risk. Bear markets are the best time for long-term investors to build positions. You think people should start buying at the top?

    Still lots of people who completely missed the move. Gold will keep going up until these doubters call for $12,000.

  • Did The Bear Market In GLD End With A Whimper? [View article]
    It'll be up another $100.00 before you even get out your checkbook. Then you'll be too nervous to buy because you'll think it's a top. Then it will go up another $100.00, and you'll buy. Then it will drop $50.00 and you'll sell. Then you'll watch it go up another $200.00 while you "stand pat."

    Yes, but what Jim Rogers isn't saying is that he is going to be buying a lot more if it goes above $1350 and even more if it goes above $2000. And he is probably even buying some at current levels as well.

    I'm sure he is keeping significant dry powder if such an event does occur, but so are many investors. That means there is significant pent up demand and will cause a dramatic short squeeze if/when it becomes clear that the market will not drop that low.

    If you don't think Jim Rogers is accumulating at these prices, I've got a bridge to sell you.

    Why would he announce to the gold bug community that he thinks $1200 is a good price to be buying? That would only drive up his own costs, and limit his opportunities to buy cheaply. Jim Rogers is a competitor of small investors in this market, not a friend.

    Rogers knows exactly what is coming down the pike. The clear evidence is that he moved his entire family to Singapore and has assimilated them into the culture there. He has been around the world and witnessed first hand the types of governments that destroy countries and the disastrous human toll it takes. He knows there is going to be financial and societal chaos in the US, and the West in general, in the coming decades.

  • My Reading Of The Financial Times On China's 'Turning Away From The Dollar' [View article]
    The goal for should be to conduct trade in a neutral currency, such as gold or silver. If China merely creates another paper reserve currency, the same abuses will take place and it will inevitably fail just like all of them have historically.

    I don't think the reserve status helps Americans who want economic freedom. It helps Americans of every economic class who want handouts from the government. Government now becomes all about favor peddling to auction off access to the international treasury, rather than creating policies that foster private-sector prosperity. The country that benefits from reserve status sows the seeds for its future economic collapse as it becomes unable to compete in a free market.
