  • Gold Showdown: Mining Stocks Vs. GLD [View article]
    It definitely varies. I have found that smaller, mom & pop type coin shops will pay at least spot. The bigger chains are going to try to screw you a little more.

    Also the premium depends on if you have Eagles/Krugerands or some generic mint rounds. I see generics going for spot, with premiums added for the name brand coins

  • 3 Stocks Trading Around $3 That Could Be Poised To Double [View article]

    Closing older, poorly-performing locations could be part of a consolidation as they ramp into this new business model. This could actually be a positive for the company.

  • Gold: The Worst Inflation Hedge Ever [View article]
    "So then what the (bleep) is gold? It's clearly not an investment, and it's clearly not a hedge. What gold is is a fear asset."

    Gold is money.

  • With Amazon, Stop Paying For Mediocrity [View article]
    It will revert on P/E yes, everything does. But it doesn't have to be due to a fall in price.

    Could be that Amazon doubles earnings and then they have a much more reasonable P/E. (granted the price coming down seems much more likely)

  • U.S. District Judge Lucy Koh has granted Apple (AAPL) a preliminary injunction on U.S. sales of Samsung's (SSNLF.PK) Galaxy Nexus phone, which it co-developed with Google (GOOG). The ruling comes two days after a preliminary injunction was granted on sales of Samsung's Galaxy Tab 10.1. A recent William Blair report claimed the Galaxy Nexus has been Verizon's #3 phone in June. An Apple patent covering unified voice and text search drew the injunction.  [View news story]

  • If Arena's Lorcaserin Is Approved, Buy Vivus [View article]
    Smarter to bet both ways. These pharma companies are perfect for straddles at the money or you can bias them long/short. Looking to do that on VVUS after I close my already profitable play on ARNA.

  • Is Social Media The New Dot-Com Bubble? [View article]
    You're forgetting Siri and other busts Apple has purchased.... They aren't immune to overvaluation, just more focused on their core products.
