  • Rare Metals Investment News Updates, Today's Edition (RareMINUTES) 050709 NEODYMIUM  [View instapost]
    Well, that all changed, didn't it? the aussies shot down the Lynas deal and at least one other. Now it appears the Canadians are clearly out front, especially Great Western.

  • The Rare Earth Security of Supply Crisis in Simplified Form  [View instapost]
    Now the Lynas deal is kaputt. Probably the same will happen to ARAF as happened to another small miner: quashed for security/defense reasons. GWMGF (scottrade) is still trading in the low thirties, and probably a steal. QSURF (Quest Uranium) around 2.80 and UCORE in the .80's. Jack's list of REE miners is very helpful and I'd suggest you list them all on your "watch" list. Also, these miners are looking for processing facilities and whoever has the technology to build these plants is going to boom right along with them for the next couple years.
    By the way Jack, who is most likely to fill the role of North American Process Facility owners/contractors?

  • Solar: Energy's New Growth Sector  [View article]
    Reading this article, and the subsequent posts, makes me realize how conservative in practice investors and columnists are addressing the alternative energy industry. Solar has taken a hit, but it will recover, brilliantly. Continuing technological advances will improve efficiencies and longevity. Contrary to what bartpr says above, it is no more difficult to call than a one horse race. The myriad forms of Solar and non polluting alternatives like wind,tidal, geothermal, geo/heat pump, and biomass energy generation are obvious. So why do I continually see only four or five names associated with these industries?
    If you are the least bit cognizant of the explosion of technologies and innovative materials in this world, you must realize that this is yet another industry sector where the little guy really can come up with the backyard/shadetree/garage discovery that changes the world. Save some investment money for these little longshot companies. Seeing that they survive and prosper is the best hedge against seeing sun and wind fall into the same monopolistic system of energy production and distribution that we are currently seeking to extricate ourselves from.

  • Is a Crash Impending?  [View article]
    Karl's comments about the banks' public misdirection of investment advices while they're accumulating stocks is right on the money. I have adopted the same strategy in the market as I have long employed when listening to the news: I assume I am being told precisely the opposite of the truth.

  • Santelli's Rant: A Watershed Moment?  [View article]
    Just another snivelling demagogue, standing amid the very institutions reponsible for the problem, with no proposed solutions. Rush and Lou and Fox are in the same boat with him. If only they would go down with the ship they're so intent on sinking. But, they're cowards who invoke the names of the founding fathers, though they themselves would have been little more than helpless pups in truly historic and desperate times, as they demonstrate right now, in their own words. And they are the first to call for the lifeboats to save their own sorry asses.

  • The Baby Doomers?  [View article]
    I remember, "Never trust anyone over 35".
    Later, "Never trust the government"
    Now, "Don't trust anyone."

    The one thing that seems consistent now is that all age groups have realized just how the "Over 35, quasi-governmental, self aggrandizing ripoff artists in the finacial sector" have screwed every age group to varying degrees, for a long forseeable future.

    I think hanging the term "Baby Doomers" by these two whippersnappers is simply a rejection that someone might have actually seen more, and known more than they do. Give'm 30 years and see what the think then.

    You don't learn much, until after you think you knowt all.

  • 2008 Was Bad - Will 2009 Be Worse?  [View article]
    I think we need to pick a number, a really big number, maybe 10,000. Let's reserve 10,000 beds in our prisons by releasing 10,000 petty marijuana possession criminals. Then we'll fill those beds with 10,000 of the most likely culprits responsible for this heist. The criminal base cuts across all sectors, so we need to look at everyone from the government (like paulson), wallstreet (like Madoff), and other financial institutions' governances. Then give them the same treatment as the pot somkers. Seize all their assets including their homes and cars, incarcerate them without bail, provide them with a public(unqualified) attorneyies and let them rot for a few years. In short, make international examples of them.
    It won't cure the current crisis, but it may provide some food for thought in the future. "Hey remember that Madoff guy from 10 years ago? Yeah he died in prison today."

  • Environmentalism May Face Major Setback in 2009  [View article]
    With the impacts of burgeoning population, reduced resources, finite real estate, and ever changing and declining environmental quality, it is obvious to the world, if not a few brain dead trolls, that we must be more frugal, efficient, and conservative with what we have, regardless . Even dogs don't crap in their own beds. We should be at least that smart.

  • Time for America to Fire First Shot in the EV Revolution  [View article]
    For the nay sayers here, read up and look around. 40 mile round trips are so , so , like not even in the ballpark,chaps. The real ranges with tne newer batteries are already well over 100 miles at full 100mph performance. Do a search for Electric Cobra, EV Racing, Tesla, or just about anything you didn't think was possible. And remember, the first car ever marketed was electric.

    Looks like a scare job to buy up a bunch of low, low priced stock...
    Maybe it worked when it got down to about 30 cents a share. This week it's about .74 on news that the Utah Geothermal plant opened up.
