  • Why Gold Is Going To 1500, Not 1000  [View article]
    "During the past four months I have progressively accumulated substantial long positions in funds of commodity producers near their lows. My largest positions are GDXJ, VFWPX, KOL, XME, EWZ, REMX, SLX, RERGX, RSX, VGPMX, TNRPX, TRIEX, FCG, TAN, GDX, and NLR, in that order, with by far my greatest concentration in GDXJ and with recent notable purchases of KOL, REMX, and SLX." -Steven Kaplan, September, 2012

    "From my largest to my smallest position, I currently own GDXJ, KOL, XME, SLX, GDX, REMX, SIL, COPX, SCIF, GXG, GLDX, RSX, VGPMX, ECH, EWZ, IDX, BGEIX, VNM, ZJG (Toronto), PLTM, URA, and EPU. I have significantly reduced my total cash position during the past three months in order to increase my holdings of the above assets. - Steven Kaplan, September 2013

    " I currently own GDXJ, KOL, XME, GDX, HDGE, SIL, COPX, REMX, EWZ, RSX, IDX, GXG, ECH, GLDX, URA, VGPMX, BGEIX, VNM, ZJG (Toronto), PLTM, EPU, TUR, SOIL, EPHE, and THD. In the late spring of 2014, I sold all of my SCIF which had briefly become my fourth-largest holding..."- Steven Kaplan, September 2014

    " I currently own GDXJ, KOL, SIL, XME, HDGE, COPX, GDX, EWZ, RSX, REMX, GLDX, URA, FCG, IDX, GXG, VGPMX, ECH, VNM, BGEIX, NGE, RSXJ, PLTM, EPU, TUR, SILJ, SOIL, EPHE, and THD. In the late spring of 2014, I sold all of my SCIF...." Steven Kaplan, November, 2015

    Yes, Mr Kaplan, we get that SCIF was a winner. Good call.

    "We have likely transitioned to a severe bear market which could last until the end of 2014" -Steven Jon Kaplan , April 2012 (S&P was under 1400)

    "THE RALLY FOR COMMODITY SHARES IS FAR FROM OVER"- Steven Jon Kaplan, September 2012

    "we are likely to experience a severe two-year equity bear market beginning in late 2012 or early 2013"- Steven Jon Kaplan, October 2012

    "Since May 2012 I have been progressively accumulating long positions in funds of commodity producers into pullbacks and especially whenever they are forming higher lows" - Stevan Jon Kaplan, November 2012.

    "I STILL LOVE GOLD AND SILVER MINING SHARES" -Stevan Jon Kaplan, October 2013

    "Since May 2012 I have been progressively accumulating long positions in funds of commodity producers whenever they have been most disfavored. I completed selling many funds of general equities which I had bought near their important low points in 2012, and which I unloaded on a gradual basis from January 28, 2013 through May 3, 2013."-Stevan Jon Kaplan, December 2013

    "I recommended that readers purchase the shares of gold and silver mining companies and their funds including GDXJ, GDX, SIL, GLDX, and SILJ. As it turned out, all of these bottomed nearly simultaneously on November 5, 2014, and have since formed bullish patterns of higher lows." Steven Jon Kaplan, December 2014

    It's not looking very bullish for NG. I think most are in agreement that there is no logical reason to buy at this time. Sounds good to me. I am loading up with April futures.

  • Is The Market Reaching A Top? All Signs Point To Yes  [View article]
    Most everyone agrees that the market is over valued. That is the problem. The majority can never be right for very long because if they were, that would be the end of the game. The stock market has become much less about investing and much more about taking money out of the pockets of the many and putting it in the pockets of the few.

    Here in Canada, food inflation is over 20%. I don't give a shit what the government 'official' statistics are as they are doctored to the point of being meaningless.

  • Natural Gas: The Gaping Axe Wound Opens  [View article]
    It is tough to be bullish on NG over the short term, given the very high storage situation. The extreme contango of the three front months makes it prohibitive to speculate on the triple leveraged UGAZ, double leveraged BOIL, or even the single leveraged UNG. The decay from contango issues will be a killer.

    The safest 'bet' on natural gas is a play would be the beat up NG companies via the etf, FCG. That said, FCG will not do well in the event of a stock market crash that takes everything down.

  • Is It Finally Time To Buy Natural Gas?  [View article]
    The safest way to 'play' NG, is to buy FCG. I personally have done well with UGAZ but it loses value quick in a sideways or down market, due to contango issues so it's not for a buy and hold investor.

  • Fiery Waterfalls Into A Valley Of Green  [View article]
    Eric, the market is acting in a very irrational manner. For example, Amazon reported a profit this past quarter of 17 cents per share (at $500) and the stock soared and is now over $600, up nearly 94% YTD. If I was holding AMZN stock, I would make sure that I had one foot out the exit door. Amazon has a market valuation of 286 billion (shareholder equity is a paltry 12 billion). That is beyond ridiculous and yet there is no shortage of analysts that have no problem justifying the price.

    There are about a half dozen high flying stocks that are keeping the S&P elevated. Meanwhile the Russel 2000, which is representative of retail investor crowd, is down 3.6%, YTD. The old saying "what is wrong with this picture" is very appropriate in describing the current state of affairs.

  • Nascent Stock Market Rally Gets Corporate America's Support  [View article]
    A $600 stock (AMZN) makes 17 cents a share and that is something investors should be excited about? The company's liabilities are going up faster than it's assets. There will be a day of reckoning. Amazon demonstrates very well all that is wrong with the stock market.

    Snoopy says "I made 12% and exited the short before the bounce". Wow, how did you know the market was going to bounce? Given your bearishness, why did you not hang on for the big one?
