    ‘Wrong Again’

    “Traditional hawks who had wanted to stick to standard monetary-policy instruments in the wake of the worst financial crisis in 80 years have been proven wrong and wrong again,” said Jack A. Bass, “Instead of inflation and moral hazard as the feared result of some non-standard policies, the euro zone is getting ever closer to deflation.

    The worst isn’t over yet as for gold after prices erased this year’s gain.
    “Gold is more responsive to the near-term growth momentum in the U.S., rather than long-term inflation concerns,” Damien Courvalin, a Goldman analyst, said . “Interest is lower in gold than it was say 18 months ago.”

    Get Out Of The Oil Patch, Get Out of Dry Bulk Shipping – New Paradigm Update
    It is human nature to look for bargains - and destroy your portfolio as you gather losers into what used to be a ” nest” egg.
    Look at Seeking Alpha and count the ” analysts” saying Dryships ( DRYS) is going to turn – how none forecast the sub dollar level it now enjoys.

  • Should You Sell DryShips? A Value Investor's View [View article]
    I have indeed been in and out of DRYS and am disappointed at how the Company management never misses an opportunity to shaft the shareholders,. There is a stream of " Why DRYS Should Be Higher " leading some portfolio money to suffer yet again - " hope " overcoming experience. My point is " hope "is a poor basis for analysis especially considering the trajectory of the Baltic Index, the continued building of new capacity and the ( comparatively) sluggish China economy.There are too many much better sectors and companies available.

  • Should You Sell DryShips? A Value Investor's View [View article]
    I appreciate the thoughtful analysis but the sector is best left until a turn is confirmed. The Baltic Index - now a mere 10 % of its high had retraced to 200 before falling again below 1000 and taking portfolio profits down with it.
