  • WWE Network, Like The Starship Enterprise, Boldly Going Where No One Has Before [View article]
    I am bullish on this stock and strongly might start a position in them. They have made aggressive change I don't see no dividend suspension or raise very soon because number one the yield isn't that high and it's not paid out at a very high level. Some might argue the dividend is at risk, but it's not I believe that their net income will change to be positive if they continue to innovate and ways to attract consumers.

  • Alamos Gold - An Opportunity To Buy A Company That Can Triple Near-Term Production [View article]
    I just bought some shares, I feel like Alamos is undervalued. Yes, they did have a lower production of gold from their mulatos mine, but I still their they have a chance to be very high gold producer. They have a lot of cash on their balance sheet, and no debt and is doing a great job being a shareholder friendly company. Due to my research, turkey is in the top 20 for producing and huge consumption of gold. The ceo saw turkey as in opportunity to put these two projects into production after they get approval from EIA. They have a project called quartz mountain in the u.s. that they bought from sea bridge gold, which Oregon one of the main states in the u.s. that has a lot of gold. It can be huge for Alamos. I predict that the gold production at Alamos will increase when they put those get those projects into production. They are a way much better investment than Kinross gold, iamgold,and Eldorado gold.

  • Wendy's: Looking Mighty Expensive [View article]
    I am long Wendy's. Wendy's was a left for dead stock. Wendy's has made a great big turnaround and I extremely impressed with their turn around. They have taken strides to innovate their products and it's the best. They have very good food and they come out with something new. They are way doing better than burger king and mcdonald's when it comes to product. Mcdonalds might have better balance sheet,but not better product or innovation compared to wendys. They are taking market share from mcdonalds and burger king. I also agree with ajg2 they are taking market share.

  • Update: Helen Of Troy Earnings [View article]
    . Based on my research, management of this company doesn't know shareholder value. Using debt(loan) to do a buyback to create shareholder value, it doesn't mean it's a shareholder friendly company. Constant Buybacks can also intrinsic value, which means that it can make the price go up and add more to the investors return so that the price of the stock can look attractive to new investors, but it can cause the stock price to decrease also.

    They used debt to finance the previous company they acquired named kaz. This new company( healthy brands) it hasn't been revealed - did they use a loan or extra capital budget spending to acquire this company.

    Another problem with this company turnover ratio with employees, if a person looks on glass door few people like the company but majority didn't due to work long hours no rest.

    In my opinion, I would avoid this stock.

  • AT&T: Time To Be Greedy? [View article]
    I strongly time to jump ship of at&t. Maybe a very high dividend yield and payout ratio, I am extremely bearish on this company due to their very heavy debt load,which it continues to grow. I strongly believe their dividend is at jeopardy right now. The ones who are in it for the dividend don't see it coming, but it's in great danger row.Besides, the dividend is what's upholding the company.

  • Silver Wheaton Gets Streaming: Why Management Doubled Down On Solobo [View article]
    I sold Silver Wheaton because they do have a enormous amount of debt over their shoulders, which there might be a great possibility they might suspend their dividend also. They diluted their shareholders to terms of trying to attract more buyers into the stock. Even though they have a good amount of streams but they are slowly moving out as an only silver streaming producer. I recommend Callinan royalties over silver Wheaton. I like callinan royalties way better than Silver Wheaton because it's a growing royalty stream company with no debt and very shareholder friendly that pays a dividend. I own Callinan royalites , which it 's very undervalued and Silver Wheaton is way overvalued.

  • Investors Have No Choice But To Own Gold After This Latest McKinsey Chart [View article]
    What is the big fuss about gold? Firstly, I respect the people who don't do or invest in gold because we don't see the same way about the shiny coin or gold stocks. I shall make my point about gold.

    Before going to make my point, I invest in gold stocks not because politics and crap like that! I invest in it because I understand the uses for gold and it's on a heavy demand.

    First off, I strongly disagree that gold doesn't have any uses! Gold has more uses and value than one thinks it does!

    Gold has the heaviest uses in semiconductor technology. Semi-conductor companies value the uses of gold in this type of technology. The reason being for it in this field because gold is used as wire bonding so that it can make inter connections with with integrated circuits on a printed circuit board in order for the device to be smooth.

    Also in this technology field, gold is used as in this built as memory chips in computer, if you look inside of your computer you will see micro-chips inside off, that's gold inside the mirco-chips and sometimes are on the sides of those chips.

    Uses for gold in semiconductor technology is still increasing due to increasing ideas and innovation in this field. The demand for gold will increase a whole lot in this area. We all have to admit that technology is growing at fast rate and will continue to grow.

    Gold is used also in a majority of cell phones! Gold is as very small mirco-chips so that the circuits because so that it can resist corrosion inside the device . Crack open your iphone or a small cell phone , there are very small gold mirco-chips mostly on the sides or in the middle.

    For the dental industry, dentist use gold for dental filings. This reason why they recommend and value it it for filings, crowns, bridges because it's a chemically and nonallergenic. Dentists especially use gold for filings because it upholds filings very well.

    Now, gold is also used for glassmaking also believe or not. The reason being for gold used in glass making as production for climate changes. It means that gold is coated into the glass surface keeps the building temperature inside cool whenever it's summer time, and stayed warm when it's winter time.

    If a person will look at buildings in cities as Los Vegas, Nevada, or Austin,Texas, or in Detroit, Michigan. They have golden windows on some buildings in those cities. There might be more cities I might not be aware, but I do know they're in those cities

    The aerospace industry as a use for gold for building space ships. Gold is used to lubricate mechanical parts, which it conducts electricity and coat the insides of space vehicles to protect people inside from infrared radiation and heat.

    I am going to stop here with the uses of Gold. Gold isn't a hoarded metal,like I said earlier it has more uses than most people think it does.

    If gold didn't have no value, or wasn't type of demand ,or not used for anything, the price of gold wouldn't move up at all- right! Now if you still think gold is not valuable, why not go into the semi-conductor technology field where they use it , the aerospace field where they use it, the dental field where they use it. Gold is very valuable to these top fields because it plays an important role to them. It's just like when a person looks at a stock, if it didn't have no value, don't you think the stock won't move up. For example, Walmart's stock, which has a lot of value or overvalued so to say! Why do a lot of investors value it? Number one,they know that a lot of people love to shop there! Why? The reason because people value and buy those products and after purchase the product, it is used! Why a lot of people value walmart because it has majority of products that people are mainly shopping and looking for .

    The truth about the price of gold! when the demand is getting stronger, and the production of gold is getting less or when gold miners find it harder to find. That's when the price going consistently goes up. When the demand is getting less for gold, it can be for a period of time, or for a short period of time. That's when the price of gold goes down. What also can drive the price of gold down, there is more production of gold from producers that is higher than the demand.

    My view on gold coins or bullion, I am not going to say that the u.s. dollar isn't replaceable, which it is! Who knows what the world's currency will be, and what corrupt politicians got up their sleeve? In my eye, it's unpredictable? I don't really know honestly what will be the world currency will be in the future? Overall,if a person has better knowledge or has evidence and see the signs that gold will be the reserve currency and be used as the money of exchange to purchase products, goods, and other items then they have a right to hold gold. It doesn't hurt to own gold bullion or coins.

    Gold bullion is a real asset. In the past, it was used as the money of exchange to purchase products and goods! Today, it's not the medium of exchange all over the world that most people or investors argue that it doesn't produce no value, it could go back that way to purchase goods?

    I do think Gold stocks will be the investment to be in rather than oil stocks! Gold is the way to go! Not oil!!!!

  • Update: Claude Resources Reports Strong Q3 Earnings [View article]
    I agree with darp. As a shareholder of claude, I think that claude is on the right track. Even though neil is resigned, I think that the company is on a very strong turn-around. They have been focused on paying off their debt, which has been their first focus to put in display. The santoy gap is right on schedule as they are getting closer to production. They did the right thing to sell the madsen project so that their balance sheet can get back into place. I believe that the management has the best interest in the shareholders. I believe after they accomplish their objective and finish paying off their debt and have more free cash flow they will start paying dividends.

    out of the 3 gold miners that I own, I think this one will outperform all the gold miners.

  • Despite Negative Press, Zynga Has Long-Term Potential [View article]
    Ok Slimmy Hendrix. even though I am not here to argue with you, but I will provide my thoughts like you asked of how they are positioning themselves to create value to which it won't still overall matter to you. The first thing that I saw about Don Mattrick was doing as CEO, the layoffs occurred because he was looking to bring in a new talent of employees, not ones who aren't into the job, this is was the first part of the process of the positioning themselves.

    After that process was cleaned up, Don Mattrick and the company realized that facebook (Farmville) doesn't bring in heavy revenue for the company, nor they can't rely on Farmville to be their big hit of game. This lead to a transition to start moving to work online games that they believe people will like. This is the second part of the process.

    Moving forward and their focus online gaming to create value, now nfl showdown, it was a free game app, not was an app for sale! The free game app was as a test to see what did people like and don't like. If you look closely at the reviews on google play and itunes, the ranking was 4 out 5, which is not bad. Moverover, A lot of people liked nfl showndown app, but few didn't due to technical issues.

    Overall in my belief there will be another nfl showdown later on because they wanted to see what did the people liked and didn't like so they can improve on the game to make it better. This is another part of the position of how they are creating value.

    The second part of positioning themselves to create value is the next free game game words with friends, a lot of people loved that game,look at the reviews on iTunes. Even though this game wasn't a big hit. that game was right 4 1/2 out of 5 in apple tunes store. This should tell you a lot a lot of folks value this game. Zygna is doing the same similar thing with words with friends.

    After the licensing and permitting rights of looney tunes from warner bros, Zynga saw some value with those characters from the gaming field to bring value to the consumer. so it shows that , if you look at Zynga's launch of Looney tunes, it's going in the right direction. You might ask how is this? The Looney tunes games are getting a lot of good reviews from consumers from the google play, and iTunes store, which the rankings was 4 1/5. This game is very hot start right now and won't be surprised if it gets in the top 5. This another game that is creating value to comsumers

    I can continue, but it won't prove my argument to you. Zynga is still creating value. Mattrick and the management of the company has done a good job to get the company going in the right direction.
