  • Gafisa: One Of The Cheapest Stocks In The World [View article]
    So far there is still good volume most days, someone is interested in buying this one, in fact, the last few days have seen price move.

    I am thinking this one is in accumulation mode.....

  • What Does The Year 1941 And Gold Have In Common? [View article]
    I am glad to see that people are starting to learn to look at charts instead of expecting the predictions.

  • New Gold: There Is A Lot More To The Story [View article]
    Valuations are probably troublesome today as the market is spotty. Once Gold is at $2,000 there will be many lovely reviews.

    Between today and the $2,000 price is a need for solid cash flow to hold it all together.

    If cash flow is satisfied this deserves a serious look. IMHO

    My thinking is that Gold will bottom at some point and then begin a long run north. That will greatly benefit people who decide to get into this situation soon.

  • The SPY-TLT Universal Investment Strategy [View article]
    Frank, Thanks for sharing this most interesting idea.....

    One question which may lead to a second question haha

    Did you do walk forward testing?

    and if you did do walk forward...... Which software are you using for all of this...?

    I see that a couple other people did some backtesting and that they are getting similar results to yours..

    I am more interested in the name of the software.

    Thanks Frank!

  • What To Do When Your Energy Stocks Are Getting Hammered [View article]
    mike904 LOL Canada to merge with France..

    I have some serious concerns re the Canadian economy, so much has been devoted to Oilsands.

    Canada has high per capita debt and no great influx of manufacturing jobs.

    Fibs are a metric as is the 200 ma or the 89 ma. Many institutions use ma's, many analysts use ma's and many people use share price as part of their evaluation and decision making.

    All of those are from the past prices....... and decisions are based on expectations which are subjective.

    Whether you use Fibs or the price or its derivatives, it could be a crap shoot as we , when measuring, do not really know the emotions of the market next minute.

    Who really knows in advance as to who will jump in with a massive buy order and move the market..?

    All we can do is evaluate with whatever tools we have and make a decision based on what has happened up until now.

    Oil is cyclical, perhaps the increased use of oil during a price downturn will firm the price. Economies are going to function better with a lower price, people will drive their cars more. The demand will rise.

    Today, we do not know where the bottom is for the price of oil, however, within a few weeks it will appear and then decisions can be made.

    Investors will be looking to bolster their positions as the price firms, the smaller companies will move higher and the producers will be fine with their cash flows.

  • Best Russell 1000 Tech Stocks According To Greenblatt Principles: Oracle Corporation [View article]
    I wonder if Oracle is not overbought by quite a bit There appears to be some divergence between price and oscillators, someone purchasing today may be exposed to a loss.

    The stock is getting close to the resistance area of the 2014 high and the stochastics show it as overbought.

    I suggest waiting for a while to see what really is going to happen with price.

  • TransGlobe Energy: A Wonderful Company At A Wonderful Price [View article]
    David... I like your approach looking for the downtrodden and abandoned. I can see great potential for this firm with its new alliance and ownership. The receivable may or may not be recovered but this company is positioning itself for the next upswing in the price of crude.

    Often, when a resource stock gets into this price area we see accumulation and perhaps an underwriting and promotion which would repay your patience handsomely. I just think that Caracal (and other friends) will not let this go much lower without starting to accumulate a greater position.

    Please write more articles about your interest in the laggards and the deadbeats, there is huge money in these for the patient investor.

    I am glad to see Yahoo get aggressive with search, however, I feel that the Google search is delivering far better results at this time, so Yahoo may see many people change the search.

  • Inside Deep Value Territory With Universal Corporation [View article]
    Price seems to have bottomed now and is rising a bit, we will have to see if preice retraces and then starts a climb. Other than that, this could start a period of accumulation.

    Now that there has been some bad news and people have lightened their positions may make this an ideal time to be long.

  • My Favourite Value Stock: AGCO Corporation [View article]
    Looking at a monthly chart, I can see that this one is in a time of decline and accumulation, perhaps a good idea to monitor it closely as it is bound to turn north. It has been sagging gently for a little more than a year and is probably about to appeal to many people.

    It is slowly building a base which may take a few months, ultimately it will climb. The last time this one had a decline it built a base at $38.00 and then proceeded to $63.00. We may see it base at $38.00 again or $39.00 and then the upward move will commence.

    I think this article may have appeared at just the right time for investors looking for a buy.
