  • Denison Mines: An Investment in Uranium's Growth Potential [View article]
    ( has the same problem as ( only worser. There's no trade volume. The problem with no trade volume is that if the stock goes up and you decide to get out, there may be nobody to buy it. Your stock may drop back down to the previous low or even lower and you have no way out. It could be very frustrating for you. Now ( has an average 1.8mil trading vol. They are on the upside with an est. target of $6.14. I think this could be a long hold. Between the three, ( appears to be your best bet, if I had to choose between the three. At this point it's time to do the due dilligence to see if it's worth the gamble since I am not familiar with the company. 1.8mil cannot be all wrong, somebody's betting on something.

  • Is the Emerging Market Bull Run Over? [View article]
    And Hampster, there are people are out of work and can't find jobs or don't want to work. But why would this mean that the stock market should come to a halt? or even be financially affected by the companies and people who do want to work? When you say: "Seems strange that with such high unemployment, people are trying to make a quick buck".

    Also you say: "And putting money in the stock market is the most risky of investments." how is it considered a risky investment when in order to purchase any stock, due dilligence is the mode of the day?

    Another thing you say is: "The other strange issue is that the rich aren't snapping up all these foreclosed homes as hoped" There's too many homes to buy and renovate with the hope of flipping them. But in some areas this is being done. If I was still young and had the energy, I'd do it too. But instead settle for the stock market because of it's easy to read and figure out how to support a growing market.

  • India Markets Monday Wrap-Up: Volatility Plagues the Indices [View article]
    Until we get Bio-Diesel cheaper than gas or get the Lithium market affordable and used in our vehicles, Oil prices will continue to rise.

    The Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) was formed to control the price of oil, and essentially worked as a cartel. Oil price has undergone a significant decrease since the record peak of US$145 it reached in July 2008. On December 23, 2008, WTI crude oil spot price fell to US$30.28 a barrel, the lowest since the financial crisis of 2007–2010 began, and traded at between US$35 a barrel and US$82 a barrel in 2009.

  • LDK Solar Sends Sales Guidance Soaring [View article]
    LDK is up over 300%yr with a 6.1mil trading vol. and a $.30 spread. Over 1.5b market cap looking strong. Excellent day trading opportunities and good for a long hold. LDK is solid.

    Here's a clip from another author: LDK Solar (LDK) recently provided Q4 and 2011 guidance as follows: For the fourth quarter of 2010, LDK Solar expects to report revenue in the range of $870 to $910 million, wafer shipments of 615 to 620 megawatts (MW), module shipments of 160 MW to 165 MW, in-house polysilicon production of 1,900 MT and 1,910 MT, in-house cell production between 26 MW and 27 MW, and gross margin between 25.0% and 27.0%. The Company’s prior guidance for the fourth quarter was revenue of $710 to $750 million, wafer shipments of 580 MW to 600 MW, and module shipments of 120 to 130 MW, in-house polysilicon production between 1,700 MT and 1,900 MT, in-house cell production between 20 MW and 23 MW, and gross margin between 24.0% and 26.0%.

    A nominal $890 million in revenue and 26% gross margin suggests $231.4 million in gross profit for Q4 2010.

    Most others I've read about in this industry are LDK Long.

  • LDK Solar's Q4 Guidance Implies Solid Performance [View article]
    IAM Phree - There have been others than don't agree that LDK will last the year. I have no idea where they get their information. What you have stated in your article is what I've found in my research. Good job for confirming it.

  • Evergreen Solar Gets That Sinking Feeling [View article]
    If you want an equity position, you gotta buy a solar/pv system made in China so you can get the incentives our government offers you. Go figure.

  • 8 Stocks You May Profit From Shorting [View article]
    Nope Yngvai, as I mentioned in my post, I sold out and am on the sidelines now just monitoring. Cost averaging down on this one is a losers bet. Now on (SLW) where there's silver and gold backing and a parallel to its cost value, I would agree that there are other/better ways to monitor its stock value. when silver goes up,(SLW) stock value goes up.

    I've also held long on Lynas. I feel Lynas has much more potential and a better portfolio than (MCP) which I feel has been inflated too long. I don't see another $61 stock unless the hype simply doesn't go away, but even if hype continues, it's still hype. Tuesday will be an interesting day for (MCP). As soon as it finally tanks, Lynas is sure to soar.

  • Cramer's Stop Trading! It Doesn't Matter What Intel Says (1/14/11) [View article]
    Currently staying away from commodities markets until Wednesday at the earliest. Right now watching Coals, Oils, REE's and Rails. I also have a few other diversified markets that I watch when commodities vegetate. When one is down, often another is up.

  • Two Indian Stocks Defying the BSE [View article]
    (MRO) looks very good, but using the charts, you think it's ready for a serious adjustment?
    (VPHM) how come there's such a difference between sales growth & income growth? but with only 647k vol trading, looks like it may be challenging to profit from this one.
    Concur Technologies, looks good but again low volume trading only 386-569k.
    (FISV) again looks good but less than 1mil trading, but certainly bears looking into.
    (ENTG) now this is what I'm looking for, looks solid, almost 1.7mil trading vol. doubled in value in the last year and inexpensive to play with.
    (CDNS) even better yet. Solid movement, 6.5mil vol trading, up $3 for the year, market cap 2.36b good upside.
    (SLB) up over 50%yr. good vol trading, over 118b market cap.

    Thx for some good Tuesday watches. I need to shuffle things up a bit since the commodity market is taking a beating. Thx. Jeff.

  • Time for Investors to Take a Serious Look at Lithium [View article]
    Lynas Corp (, the Australian rare earth element mining company, announced it will accept an offer from China Non-Ferrous Metal Mining Co to provide A$252 million of equity capital in exchange for a 51.6% equity position in Lynas. As part of the deal, China Nonferrous will provide guarantees to help Lynas secure financing from Chinese banks for two loans worth $104 million and $80 million. Lynas said the second loan is not needed immediately but is to be made available at the request of its board.

    I haven't had the chance to read just how much ( has been affected by the recent flooding in Australia. Here's the whole article:
    but I continue to find it interesting that China has their hands in almost every natural element.

  • Denison Mines: An Investment in Uranium's Growth Potential [View article]
    Good article Michael: I've been watching (DNN) but I prefer (CCJ). The best reason I can site for this is the volume trading and because of its unpredicatability (at least I can't predict it) I don't buy long. Of all the Uranium stocks you list, these are my two most favorite to watch. I have been long on (CCJ) for about 2 months now. As has been mentioned in other articles, Cameco Corporation operates as a nuclear energy company. The company operates through three segments: Uranium, Fuel Services, and Electricity. The Uranium segment involves in the exploration for, mining, milling, purchase, and sale of uranium concentrate.

    And this is what I look for in (CCJ) articles just what you said: "These legacy contracts protect both Cameco and their customers from the large shifts in pricing of uranium. Cameco is able to do this with a very low cost of production."

    I invest in (SLW) for the same reason. Good Article.
