  • ADM Getting More Than The Usual Benefit Of The Doubt [View article]
    A company that shows up in these discusses is Solazyme that is IMO a biotech company. They are described as developing nutritional oils among other products. Is there any merit in this company in connection w/AMD? Thanks

  • China Announces That It Is Going To Stop Stockpiling U.S. Dollars [View article]
    Thanks Michael for the article. Saw some of this yesterday from Reuters, I think.
    US Petrodollar has been undermined for sometime now with side deals between China and Brazil, Russia, Australia, etc. using the yuan, reale, ruble, etc. instead of US$.
    China is strategic & dumping US$ buying oil, mineral rights, gold, companies, etc worldwide including US investments.
    Do you see any value in a CNY or CBY play on the yuan? What about equities in oil and minerals business worldwide?

  • Thoughts Concerning The U.S. Dollar [View article]
    IMO a dramatic decrease in the value of the US$ will occur suddenly rather than a smooth downward slope caused by external factor(s) mostly out of US control. A point in time at which there is a lack of confidence and/or faith in the US$.
    It is evident that China, Australia, Europe, Russia, Brazil, India, parts of the Middle East are acting through third party agreements to exchange export and import payments around the US$ especially the usual US Petrodollar.
    Question: How do US citizens residing in the US prepare for this? Stock, bonds, real estate, gold, silver, other metals, oil, etc? Thanks.

    PS I have not read your prior articles, so you may have already answered this question.

    Thanks for your article. The challenge seems to be confidence in government plus solvency is the issue rather than liquidity.
