  • Apple ruled not guilty in iPod DRM suit [View news story]
    FYI, Apple was found "not liable," rather than "not guilty." Guilty is a term used in criminal cases, not civil cases.

  • The 'Real' Reason Gold Will See $5000 [View article]
    Avi:
    Any thoughts on whether the mid-term elections tomorrow will have a negative or positive effect on GLD? It seems likely that the Republicans will take over control of the Senate. Does that bode well for stocks and poorly for gold or am I over thinking it? Thanks,
    Henry

    Thanks Liam. You probably did well if you bought them before the Fed Minutes came out at 2 pm EST.

  • Time To Buy The Dip In Gold? [View article]
    Thanks for your article. Looks like we are testing those levels now. Hopefully, this will be the bottom. Any thoughts on when the effect of the end to QE, which took place two days ago, will show in the economy? I've read that as soon as next week we might start seeing problems because of the lack of liquidity. What might that do for gold? Thanks again.

  • Commodity Deflation Gets No Relief From The ECB [View article]
    I agree with a number of the points you make, except that you're shorting gold. If you think the world is in for a recession, shouldn't that be good for gold as safe haven buying picks up?

    Liam:
    For lack of a better place to ask you a question, I'll do it here. A number of pundits (including Goldman) think that the market has not appropriately priced the end of the Fed's bond purchases, which will occur in October. Goldman very clearly thinks this will have a severe negative impact on stocks. Do you think that it will have the opposite effect on gold? Thanks again.

    The Scottish vote went our way and GLD still went down. Go figure. It has to turn around eventually, right?

    So, i don't get it. From all appearances, the Fed statement seems to be more dovish than most forecast -- they continued the "considerable time" language and Janet Yellen even says there is "no calendar date" when rates will rise -- but the price of gold still falls of the table. What gives?

  • Asian gold demand slumped in Q2 [View news story]
    I'm not sure i see why this is taken as a negative for gold. It says that China cut its buying in the past sense, which should be reflected in historical prices, not prices going forward. This also suggests that Asia buying should increase going forward. I would assume additional demand would be a good thing.

    Do you have an opinion about what the Fed meetings this week might mean for GLD?

  • Proof Positive That Vringo Is Dead Money [View article]
    So the proof positive that VRNG is dead is that the company did not issue a press release? Sounds kinda thin . . . .

  • American International Group Inc declares $0.10 dividend [View news story]
    This is an extremely misleading post. Normally I'm a big fan of Seeking Alpha, but this is beneath you. No mention whatsoever of the fact that the prior dividend of $0.22 was in 2008 before AIG collapsed. The truth here is that AIG just reinstated its dividend for the first time in almost five years. This is good news. Calling it a "54.5% decrease" in bright red letters is deceiving and bad form.

  • ConocoPhillips: The Best Investment In The Energy Sector? [View article]
    Am i missing something? This sentence doesn't seem to make any sense: "Ten years ago, the stock was trading at around $19 and one could buy 500 shares for one thousand dollars." Wouldn't 500 * 19 = $9500? As far as I can tell, COP has never traded anywhere near $2/share. I like your article, but the entire premise of the last three paragraphs seems mistaken.
