  • Platinum Is On Sale And In A Deficit: How To Play It [View article]
    Hi Chris,

    I'm very new to investing, and I've been keeping an eye on your articles for the past couple of months to help guide me. Unfortunately, I bought SLV,GLD, and IAU about two months ago and, contrary to all reason, I've watched them drop. So it goes! I'm still confident they'll go up in the long term, which is what I'm in for.

    It does make me worry though when I hear you reference platinum's historical pricing in relation to gold, and see that gold is actually trading /higher/ that platinum currently. Your conclusion is that platinum is undervalued, but couldn't it just as well be the case that gold is well overvalued? I hope not! Can you help me understand what you're basing your conclusion on?

  • This week's Oracle OpenWorld (ORCL) conference had 50K attendees, whereas's (CRM) recent Dreamforce conference had 90K. That's one more reason observers are wondering if Salesforce and other cloud vendors are stealing Oracle's thunder, in spite of Oracle's efforts to keep up. "CIOs are feeling guilty if they don’t do anything around Salesforce," a Piper analyst wrote recently, while adding resellers have observed a "continuous talent flow of executives from Oracle to Salesforce."

    Actually, it was held at the Moscone Center (West, North, and South campuses), and 7 other venues within about a 15 minute walk of Moscone: The Hilton Union Square, the Grand Hyatt, the Intercontinental, the Palace Hotel, the Novellus Theater, the Yerba Buena Forum, and the Esplande.

    It was big. I'm not sure it was 90k big, but then most of the sessions I went to were in just two of the 10 venues. It's something to look into in any case. (Benioff seems pretty slimy to me.)
