  • "We think that Apple could be on the brink of driving a major leveraging up," writes JPMorgan's Mark Moskowitz in a voluminous note defending the stock. He believes the company will take on $15B-$20B in debt and bump the dividend yield to 4%. As far as operations, Moskowitz expects an earnings beat this quarter and upward pressure on estimates for 2013. AAPL +0.9% premarket. [View news story]
    Is it possible AAPL board knows something us mortals don't know....I.e. perhaps they're waiting to buy stock back at 375 if Apr 23 earnings are worse than expected by mkt.

  • Market Mis-Pricings: Buy Apple, Sell Ketchup [View article]
    Interesting arguments. Next question: why is AAPL mispriced? Isn't the market ALWAYS right? Why are the bears right and the bulls wrong. We've all read the bears' and bulls' arguments , and both have valid comments.... but the stock is still languishing for the past quarter at these 'unrealistic' levels.

  • Don't Be Fooled, Gold Will Soar In 2012 [View article]
    Description of FIAT:
    an arbitrary decree or pronouncement especially by a person or group of persons having absolute authority to enforce it the king ruled by fiat.

    Government control fiat currency but cannot control the price of gold... If they try, it goes underground....

    I'd rather own gold . just think of the USDOLLAR depreciation in the last 60 years or Nixon's gold at US$ 35 and yesterday's @
    US$ 1600.

  • Enthusiasm for Gold Continues to Wane [View article]
    agree with Analyste de Boston. Gold is up in US$ because the US$ is going down!!!!!. Check GOLD in Swiss Frs.... it's up only 6% in the last 12 months whereas GOLD in US$ is up over 30%!!!!!! in the same period. As long as one keeps printing the US$ bills and increasing debt, there is only one way the dollar will go, and that's down... against what? Gold of course.

  • Market Correction on the Horizon? Use Caution Going Forward [View article]
    Assume the worst outcome... study the previous crashes/crises.... and watch the great opportunities on AUG 3rd... it always happens and this time it will be no exception. These financial dramas are the norm now, and we better get used to them.

  • Why We See Gold Going Lower Long-Term [View article]
    Let's not forget that SILVER has outperformed GOLD in US$ terms over the last few years and no one seems to comment

  • Why We See Gold Going Lower Long-Term [View article]
    Let's look at history: since when have people been attracted to Gold? Lets call it 5000 years... give or take a few centuries....the USdollar was established in 1792 I believe.... food for thought.
    Where is it written that the dollar is the currency benchmark forever?
    And furthermore, is there anything, and I do mean anything, that can replace gold as a benchmark for currency or value ? Maybe Old Masters, Picasso's, Warhols?

  • Gold: A Bad Investment and Getting Worse Part I [View article]
    In BARRONS the other day an interesting remark was said at their roundtable, quote:
    At its 1980 peak of $850 an ounce, gold represented 3% of the market capitalization of global equities, bonds and money-market assets. Today it is 0.6%. The price has a long way to go.

    this is certainly food for thought

    5000 years of gold history cannot be ignored. There has to be a
    benchmark for paper currency otherwise how do we value one dollar or one euro or one pound or one yen. So far there isn't any
    other instrument or material or asset that can replace gold as a
    measurement of value against paper money which can be printed
