  • Update: Sandstorm Gold Initiates Stock Repurchase Program [View article]
    Yes to heavy dozers and the like in open cast mines, but using generators is hardly a cost effective alternative to mains electricity (mines are hardly here today, gone tomorrow) and underground, the big ore movers are conveyor belts or ore cars, and it's one of the last places where you'd want diesel fumes.

    Whatever, such collaborations rarely amount to anything useful.

    You are right, SJ, but it's a pity the price doesn't reflect the "previous generation" components BBRY use; had it done so, maybe those customers of the local supermarket might have looked twice at the first (of two) Z10s they had in, instead of flicking straight past it. Who's going to pay premium for the products of what's generally viewed as a "has been" company?

    "decimation" GE? I'd state nonadecimation (if there is such a word) would be nearer the mark!

  • BofA lower as Moynihan warns on trading revenue [View news story]
    Tell that to the idiots who find things on the web, and swallow them hook line and sinker. As for the quote, if Jefferson ever said anything like that, it was most probably a jibe at Hamilton (the man Burr killed, and arguably the main instigator of America's form of capitalism; Jefferson was more in favour of an agrarian society). Bear in mind, too, that people who seek high office (and none of those guys were forced into it...) see themselves as going down in history, and so tend to work very hard at coining deep seeming and memorable quotes. Try getting hold of a dictionary of quotes (mine, published by the Cambridge press, is excellent) and checking out what all these people came up with (Adams was particularly impressive); people don't make such assertions in normal conversation.

  • 3 Reasons Why Bank Of America Is One Of My Top Picks For 2015 [View article]
    Woah, HW; "I sold a big portion of my BAC in mid 17s not because I do not believe BAC cannot rise further" means you believe BAC cannot rise further (if I've got my "not" count right)! Would you like to restate that?

    Which fuel is that, MT? I imagined electricity is the most used in mines, which means there are many steps/middle men between that and oil, which means long delays in the price dropping (if ever) to reflect falling oil prices.

  • Update: Sandstorm Gold Announces Share Buyback Program [View article]
    Speaking for myself, I've no use for gold or mines either, but streamers have high beta, which makes them interesting in terms of trading potential, hence my following of SAND.

    You haven't read Gore Vidal's "Burr" then? I'm no expert on the period, but the rampant self interest he reports among the so-called founding fathers, ties in with what I've read elsewhere (like quotes from so many of them exclaiming astonishment that, among other things, the constitution survived the first session). It's a good read.

    Well they could have bought into Aurora, I suppose, but the buy back makes more sense to me!

    HS did it the right way, then; I question the sanity of anyone who does otherwise, unless of course they are planning on cashing in lots of stock options? That's hardly managing to improve shareholder value!

    I spotted Gazprom too, and it seems ridiculously cheap, but it's not necessarily the right time to buy; if the rouble continues to fall against other currencies (especially the $) which seems likely, and oil prices continue to drop, which also appears likely, it might be better to wait, but with finger poised over the button, so to speak. It's really down to how long you plan on holding; the Russians' seeming indifference to their plunging economy, and Putin's increasing popularity, can't last for ever, and I'd expect Gazprom as an entity to outlive him...

    Ortiz said. "I'd like to think the opposite. As we become more intelligent, as a race we become kinder and more peaceful and treat people better,"

    Not very observant, is he?
