  • Gold (GLD) futures jumped nearly $40/oz. to log their biggest one-day gain of the year, supported by physical demand, prospects for easier global monetary policies and a weaker U.S. dollar. Today's rally brings gold's recovery to ~50% of losses from the selloff that began ~$1,560. Silver (SLV) enjoyed an even bigger bounce, rising 5.7%, but it needs a lot of catching up to approach historical gold/silver ratios. [View news story]
    I'm looking for Gold to fall to $700-800 level this summer. Silver to catch up to 16:1 ratio. That would be $50. Where are the HUNT Brothers when you need them?

    Wow, I'm buying more on dips and waiting just a few months. What a wonderful drug for cancer patients who have no hope left.

  • ServiceNow: Analysts Say Buy But Insiders Rush To Sell Big [View article]
    Isn't it terrible that investors are actually scared to get into the market?
    It used to be that people were willing to buy a little share or two or ten and they would watch it go up up up. Now, the market has been so crazy the last five years, I'm actually waiting for the market to dip deep again.

    So I'm watching on the sidelines. Waiting for a large dip and improving economy. Don't get me started on politics...

  • Why Are Investors Excited About Ariad? [View article]
    I trust Goldman and Sacs about as much as I trust any shyster on the street. Remember they- Goldman - Cramer's pet company - were involved heavily in the Obama let's print millions and the Housing bust, etc. We Americans have an itty bitty memory. It sounds like a great company. I would rather have the chance for bleeding ulcers than die by not taking the drug. Look at your aspirin and Tylenol fine print. That's scarey, too. Just saying.

    I am still very excited about the drug and since I used to be a drug rep back in the 70s I know about the negative crap that's printed. I sold a #1 drug in its class and it had horrible reviews at first. I went to the ER last month and got some generic med on my visit. The silver bullet has yet to be found. Buy ARIA.

  • Precious metals go into the tank on chatter the G-7 is set to issue a statement in which all will pledge to get along with regards to currency devaluation. The G-20 meets in Moscow at week's end. GLD -1.2%, SLV -1.5%. [View news story]
    I'm with Tampat, another buying opportunity coming. Ask China and India to stop buying Gold and I'll listen, maybe.

  • Gold slipping in the wake of the Fed's even easier policies doesn't surprise Uri Landesman, who sees a dramatic correction ahead. The metal performs best as a "flight to quality," he argues, and the Fed moves take that bid away. His downside target next year is $1,400/oz. [View news story]
    BernAnke and the Gold fake out means nothing to the entire world like Brazil, China etc. Gold will win out and GLD will follow real gold sooner or later because they buy gold like you do.

    I got out above $315 but I think if I can grab it near $250 it's a steal.

    Clinton, your picks here are wonderful. Thanks for sharing. In fact two of these are ones I already owned for the same reasons you stated. They are just oversold and "tossed out". I like NAT and QCOR in your list.

    With the current unstable market, I AM that pig in shit and I hate to admit it but violent swings are the norm now for me and I'm getting used to it a little bit.

    OMG, I can't believe I just admitted to that!
