  • S&P 500 Sector P/E Ratio Charts [View article]
    I will laugh when the markets sink like a rock. I would not even consider putting a dime into these markets at these levels unless to short them. I give it 6 months or less to a drastic pullback.

  • Hatteras buys mortgage servicer [View news story]
    Excellent move and buying more HTS. I'll gladly take the dividends of this stock long term in my portfolio. Right now, I think this stock is undervalued along with many REITs so buying more as I am long for the dividend and not worried about the price too much as I feel this is beaten down way too far.

  • Precious metals continue to sell off sharply, gold (GLD) -4% to $1,440/oz., the lowest level in about 2 years. Off 6.7% to $24.58, silver's (SLV) back to fall 2010 levels. [View news story]
    I am all in buying more silver at this price-I will take bars of silver ANY DAY over junk paper currency that is printed out of thin air at alarming rates like the US is doing.

  • Notwithstanding Friday's implosion, Barron's Randall Forsyth says gold looks undervalued, and pitches the precious metal as the anti-bitcoin: "It is incongruous that gold - money that can't be printed, just minted - would enter a bear market Friday." Calafia Beach Pundit disagrees. His next target for gold: $1,000. [View news story]
    If anyone thinks gold is not money-it is obvious they never lived in Asia. I'm American and lived in Thailand and traveled in Asia and I assure you it is used as savings and money.

  • The gold bear market/correction continues with the metal sliding to $1,537/oz., the lowest since last summer. Looking at a longer-term chart, gold has bounced off the low-mid $1,500 level a few times over the last 18 months.  A drop below that would break what the technicians like to call "long-term support." The pattern in silver is similar. GLD -1.6%, SLV -2.2% premarket. [View news story]
    The US Dollar going down, which it should under Comrade Obama and Comrade Bernanke would flip this whole thing on its head. I'll take physical over this paper tiger any day of the week.

  • Jaguar Mining Management Discusses Q4 2012 Results - Earnings Call Transcript [View article]
    I'm actually pleased reading this as a long term JAG owner that has read and heard so much pie in the sky, this actually seem reasonable. JAG's reserves are incredible, their debt structure is poor and their management is finally turning it around slowly so I see hope. That said, the downside of gold price would be crushing, but I see inflation on the horizion so that will help JAG and gold pricing.

  • Silver Forecast Is $90 In 2013? [View article]
    Unrealistic comment as the best traders in the world are not even 60% correct. He is not GOD, nor is he inferring absolute certainty as the amount of variables is literally infinite in nature.

  • Bullish Sentiment Declines [View article]
    Keep buying into this hot hair of a market. When the government realizes they are making too much money, they will tax the heck out of them let alone Obismal Care and watch the profits sink. The 2014 health care costs are going to DOUBLE. Mark my words-write it down, it is coming and that I have from a very high level Blue Cross executive. Keep drinking the Kool aid but for me, I will stick with hard assets and no more equities for me.

    Long silver and go physical. Washington DC does not know how to stop spending like a bunch of drunken sailors on liberty in a foreign port.

  • Sovereign Default Risk Plummets In 2012 [View article]
    VERY good point-I am sick of this US cheerleading which seems to be quite ethnocentric in nature. It is this "it can't happen to me" syndrome as we continue to make more debt. If a person made 50K a year and spent 70K year after year, would you continue to loan money to that person? Why does this not apply to governments when eventually the interest payments will overwhelm them?

  • Jobless Claims Make A Post Recession Low [View article]
    As a business owner that sells to businesses, we get a very good feel of the US economy. They are terrified, employees are working more, for less. As an individual, I see employees not looking, leeching off of government benefits and the ones that are sincerely looking are met with nonsensical low end jobs. This will not end well-Obama is the scum of the earth and the people will keep voting for their freebies as their entitlement mentality will prevail. The ones working will not wont to work and will join the freebie crown and this country will fall-it is only a matter of time. Don't trust my opinion, look at the numbers-they do not lie. Spending is up for the government like never before, revenues are down, interest as a % of GDP is skyrocketing, our currency is slowly falling and people are losing confidence. I have zero faith even in the government's own numbers-it makes me sick anymore watching. The last remaining people working are not getting motivated working as their money is going to the lazy people not looking for work and alleged disabilities to get more free money and eventually the working ones will not want to work. I hear it and see it loud and clear from my retail customers scamming the system. America has become a joke and their sheer arrogance will take this country down-the country I grew up loving. We are actually leaving the USA as I have extensively traveled and I see how crappy it has become and before anyone flames this, go travel a lot yourself and you will see we do not have much freedom here and our government is WAY OUT OF CONTROL IN A POWER BATH.

  • May is an important month for gold stocks, says Jordan Roy-Byrne, noting the yellow metal has seen important interim tops/bottoms then in nearly each year of its decade-plus bull run. It's possible, he says, May 2012 could mark an important bottom, a la 2005. Russ Koesterich adds don't take your eye off the ball - the Fed remains gold's best friend.  [View news story]
    We are actually leaving the US in a few years and I can't wait to be frank. I have traveled enough to see most of the world getting better while the US continues its drift down. I can't even change windows on my own home without a permit here, my business needs more paperwork daily with regulation and taxes while the government spends and spends on idiotic programs and rewards negative behavior. So much money is being spent than comes in, the arguement for physical assets to me is strong and PM's are small and compact :-)

    I would take nearly any physical asset of Dollars at this point. it is becoming clear the problem is not getting resolved and is only getting kicked down the road. I am long gold and silver-America has lost my confidence to stop their out of control spending.

  • Jaguar Mining: An Activist Investor Waiting To Pounce [View article]
    I am long JAG myself and large into the stock as my #1 holding and have owned it. Management has been a gross disappointment, but the assets of the company are HUGE. The 13D from Bristol is old news and why many shareholders have not seen it before defies belief. The fact is that the Board will get a bonus over $10 a share if the company is sold, so if they are offered $9.85 they might not be inclined to take it on behalf of the shareholders-THAT IS THE PROBLEM and has been the problem. Have any of you called investor relations or looked at SEC filing? I have done both myself, but again I have a large position in JAG, not $20K or the like. I fail to see why on earth this stock is this low-it is undervalued as can be and I have only added to my position. It is my thought that gold will continue to rise and the assets of JAG will increase, and yes someone will want those asests and if not management will be able to harvest the gold and turn a profit soon. Hell, hire me as CEO and I would work on % of NET profits with zero salary and I could turn JAG around (if I was not running my own company).
