    Since I made a request for PGM stocks from an author who has declined to answer, I did my own digging. This site should help those interested in PGM companies.

  • GE to Close Its Only U.S. Solar Panel Factory [View article]
    Old Wizard: what does the Energizer Bunny's access to a steady, readily avaiable supply of Lithium have to do with Solar Panels?

    To my knowledge, Lithium is NOT an ingredient in the process.
    Tellerium, maybe that's what you mean? FSLR is the only company using it, again to my Knowledge.

    But since you know so much about it, please name just One Solar Panel Maker using Lithium.

  • Bubble, Bubble, Toil and Trouble [View instapost]
    Reality VS Perception of Reality

    The longer the downturn in earnings, the Greater the PE ratios in the stock market Indeces. The Lower the competition from Interest rate levels, the greater the involvement in stocks which have the expectation of Growth against the Backdrop of Low levels of return from Interest rates.

    Its going to be Perception and the Guidance of it by Analysts. Reality won't play a part for a few Qtrs. What happens to the earnings of Oil companies when they begin to be compared to the 4th and first qtrs?

    Next year a large part of the Obama Infrastructure Sitimulus begins. It will be spend, spend, spend. Earnings will definitely increase dramatically from that alone,

    This is why I discount the W scenario. The Stimulus will be real. It was geared to come into play before the 2010 Elections.

    So if there is going to be another hit in the 10% range, it will be within the next 4 Months. My guess is that it will begin within the Next few weeks.

    Profit Taking, Mutual Fund redemptions to payout dividends, Tax loss selling, Porfolio and Hedge Fund attempts to lock in gains can all lead to a drop back down to the Low 9,000 level on the Dow.

    HTL: How much of the move was the removal of Ragnarok from the equation?

    The SPX will reach some level and go sideways as it waits for Earnings to catch up. It will find some sort of Trading range as it waits.

    Most of the real Dogs have been replaced within its structure so that the overall earnings have already improved without actually improving. The Big majors have their home in this Index, this means International Currency exposure and Increased Earnings on conversion. The Labor force has declined and is unlikely to be replaced for years. The Bottom Line will continue to benefit from it.

    Can you imagine what the Earnings comparisons will be year over year In 2010. Analysts will take the Fourth Quarter of 2009 and extrapolate over the next 12 months. They will have a field day.

  • Gold's Cousins are Outperforming [View instapost]
    Palladium is cheap relative to platinum. Tata car sales exceed production. I believe that Fiat will enter the Indian market as well with a Sub-$3,000 car. These cars will require Catalytic Convertors. I can't see the usage of a metal which is 300% higher, so I can easily see Palladium playing Catch up against platinum.

    If you add in the ongoing Power problems in South Africa and if Russian sales are really out of the way, then Mark's prediction will occur sooner than later.

    Mark, are there any other Miners with Plat/Pall predominant exposure?

    I want to leave a Legacy for your dearly departed. A legacy for Internet Posterity.

    The Problem "rocks" has is his inability to quote any of my "attacks" back to me while I can "cut and paste" all of his comments directed at myself and females in general, in black and white in my Insta.

    After all, I'm a Mindless, Deranged Cat. Everyone Agreed.

    So be it.

    Hot Richard: Since you love it so much, why don't you include the "eff" word in every comment you make from Now On.

    Hot Richard: I'm not arguing, I'm showing you exactly what he said. If you Include the Personal Abuse in his latest post, It is just a continuation.

    Pray tell, how many languages is the American "eff" word translated into?

    I have Never called him names.

    But, Then I see you are concentrating on one aspect and Condoning the Abuse itself. Very, very nice.

    You have chosen to ignore his lie and the latest " "I did a Search..."

    What do you have to say regarding those comments?

    Sorry about the Treasury Aspect, I was really only looking at the Commodity and stock Markets which seem to be drawing the Greatest number of Bubble Cries.

    I Have Yet to see anyone Define what a determines a Bubble but I have seen Bubble Cries all over the place.

    Lets say the SPX returns to 1200 by year end. Will it be in a Bubble or still 30% below its highs of 2 years ago. I consider its Collapse to have Been a Bear Bubble But Apparently, I'm alone on this.

    While I was gone, he did exactly what I said he would do. And you bought it, just like I said you would. His comments include the following:

    "What I'm seeing here is a single-participant back alley cat fight where one deranged cat is fighting with itself."

    A very Gentlemanly Comment.

    "Freya accused me of saying "when the females are gone". I went to
    the trouble of visiting all 57 pages of my comments, and using the
    search feature "control F", searched every single one of my 823 comments
    for any occasion where I might have typed the word "female". I think
    you can guess exactly how many times it came up. ZERO! I did the
    same thing for the word "gone".

    This comment is still there in the response of another female reader, The Original was deleted at my request because of the Included Obscenity. It was included in my Insta which I deleted as part of my Truce.

    "This is where I'd normally insert the eff word.

    I should never have used the full spelling of that word. I was bad and I admit it. And I sincerely apologize to all who were offended, both male and female. Why females only should be offended is beyond me. Males can equally be offended. But I certainly haven't been offended by some of the similar things I've seen written by others. Neither was Freya."

    A Gentleman never spells out that word in mixed company. He does so Normally. I don't bother to "Comment" on its use or similar uses, I just report Abuse as I see them. Poof, Gone. Why bother to lend credence with a comment. All of the Comments which included the "eff" word were deleted.

    "My children, who for some reason Freya felt necessary to bring into one of her mindless attacks"

    Yes, I wondered whether his daughter would appreciate seeing The Eff word in her Father's comments and said so.

    This is the Comment he can't Conveniently find and the Comment I asked him to show his daughter, the One I had deleted so his daughter wouldn't be exposed to it: In Lower48's comment stream:

    On Nov 03 12:13 PM Albertarocks wrote:

    He Never retracted his first lie:

    "One time Freya left a comment that ended with ????

    I thought she was saying: "Remember that one Albertarocks?" Where I come from, that's what ???? means. It means "do you remember?" It's rhetorical"

    This is a Lie. I never left a comment that ended with "????". EVER, to anyone.

    So Now I'm a "Deranged" Cat. I'm "Mindless" because I don't believe in seeing or having others see these "Normal" words he likes to use.

    I lost a Lot of Money, But I brought a lot of money to lose. For the Next 16 months, my immediate losses will result in Comped Air/hotel stays in Las Vegas with offers coming in every month to a different location. (always for two).

    I've never purchased "Designer" apparel but 2 items which I never would have even considered buying are coming in the Mail as Gifts, Geez, $700 bucks for a purse and wallet, free. All charges at the Hotel, Waived. We charged everything to the Room, including $100+ room service and breakfasts.

    I went in with a Plan. I wanted to reach a certain Level of Play. Why? Because I'm retired now and have the time to go to Reno or Canada or Vegas. Now I can pick and choose where and when and I do not have to make Air/Hotel reservations. I just call my Casino Assigned Host. Poof, pack your bags honey, 4 nights at the Casino of your choice, Free, 2 Free Shows included. I'm going to love it.

    The Wedding was Great, Held at the Oldest Catholic Church in Vegas. The Reception after was held at a Country Club way outside the City. The left for Hawaii the next day. Talked to them after they arrived, They said it was cloudy and raining. Vegas was sunny and warm. We charged the Call to our room. I loved it.

    Back to work.

    HTL: This is a total Flier, Money you can afford to lose. But I put it into the same realm as some of the REEs. To me its all about assets. They have some good ones, I'm willing to wait until NATUF is "discovered", maybe longer.

    If you take a look at the chart pattterns of the REEs prior to Discovery, you will essentialy see a Flatline. I look for Volume spikes with little or no movement in the stock to give me advance warning.

    Sometimes they occur shortly before a move, sometimes it can be many months, Hence the Flier aspect, I've done this before and been burned before. No Guts, No Glory...just as long as you realize that your Guts may be lying there. If you can't afford to lose it, do Not Buy it.

  • Political Forum? Investment Forum? [View instapost]
    Triple: You've made me a happy camper indeed, I've seen that Dragon before, somewhere, that's why it caught my Eye.

    I sometimes end a comment with "Its Hammer time.", this is from Drake's Hammer's Slammers series. Lusterbaden has started collaborating with Ludlum on the Bourne Series. Ever hear of the Horse Clans?

    I could just go on and on.

    Anyway, I don't mind the political comments in general, I do Mind when I have to dig through them to find an idea. Especialy, if there is commentary on the Investable from others that I might miss just because there are so many political comments inbetween.

    When everyone gets going, questions are missed, answers are missed, responses are missed.

    Sure Geopolitics are involved, but China's intentions are Plain, they have spelled out what they are up to. The only reason I watch them closely, is to see what sector they could be after next. China is going to do what is Best for China.

    They just issued around $12 Billion in Yuan Bonds, I do not know if they are actually in Yuan or USD denominated.

    I have to see what Maya wants, will be back.

    TraderRob: The Goal of a perfect society would be for machines to do All of the work so that the rest of us could be fed and cared for by the Government.
