    I guess the one thumbs down was from Maher? Just guessing. I didn't do a thorough study on the matter and I have not posted these findings in my blog either. O, and I didn't charge for this research either.

    CCME looks interesting. I do extensive investing in China including CHGS, CBAK, XING and SHZ to mention a few. But CCME looks like it would fit into my profile of purchases just right. Very good article. Worth watching, thx.

  • Quest Rare Minerals: A 'Real' Rare Earth Element Market Player to Watch [View article]
    Some general information on REE's REO's; Question becomes who will be able to mine, market and sort out their REE's at a better price to those actually using it?

    The use of rare earth elements in modern technology has increased dramatically over the past years. Rare earth elements are now incorporated into many technological devices, including superconductors, samarium-cobalt and neodymium-iron-boron high-flux rare-earth magnets, magnesium alloys, electronic polishers, refining catalysts and hybrid car components (primarily batteries and magnets).[8] Rare earth ions are used as the active ions in luminescent materials used in optoelectronics applications, most notably the Nd:YAG laser. Erbium-doped fiber amplifiers are significant devices in optical-fiber communication systems. Phosphors with rare earth dopants are also widely used in cathode ray tube technology such as television sets. The earliest color television CRTs had a poor-quality red; europium as a phosphor dopant made good red phosphors possible. Yttrium iron garnet (YIG) spheres have been useful as tunable microwave resonators. Rare earth oxides are mixed with tungsten to improve their high temperature properties for welding, replacing thorium, which was mildly hazardous to work with. Many defense-related products also use rare earth elements as enhancers. For instance, night vision goggles, rangefinders, the SPY-1 radar used in some Aegis equipped warships, and the propulsion system of Arleigh Burke class destroyers all use rare earth elements in critical capacities.[9]

    REE's have been recently advertised as hype stocks. But the more you read about them, In my opinion, they are more attractive in the marketplace than gold, silver or any other precious metal. They are being used, sold, inventoried and now advertised. I look at the next 2-3 years of successful trading with them with their profits only on the rise. I don't think there is a bad REE stock. There are only better ones. I also think that REE's & Uranium are both going to be on our watch lists from now on having now gravitated to the forefront of the marketplace.

    In order to make any significant dent in the marketplace, UURAF will have to increase their volume trading and their spreads. $.03 is not going to make anybody money. Trading at $.70 is cheap enough to buy and put on the back burner, but isn't there a better way to make more $$$ quicker? If a trader bought at their recent low during mid Dec. 2010 when it was $.45 he would have only made $.25 during the entire last month, when other trades would have netted him twice that in one day? Unlike other REE's stocks, there appear to be no moving spreads to work.

  • Agnico-Eagle Mines Still Lagging Well Behind Gold [View article]
    In your comment: "we are disappointed to see it languishing at $69.76. Back in April 2008, Agnico was trading in the $70-80 range and gold was trading below $1,000.00/oz; now here we are with gold prices at roughly $1,367.50 and Agnico can't manage $70!"

    I am in agreement with this. I have been watching AEM for months waiting to see it break out, but do a chart on their last few months performance and it's bleak to disappointing. Yet their statement: "We are pleased to announce a 256% increase to our longstanding dividend. As we continue to grow our gold output and increase cash flows over the next several years, our goal is to further increase our dividend yield. Furthermore, we expect our operations to generate sufficient cash flows to fund our internal mine expansions, the development of the new Meliadine mine project and investments in other growth and exploration initiatives."

    How could AEM management make this statement in light of their performance? It almost seems political. It should be, "We're doing pitiful, so somebody hire Pelosi to make it sound that we're doing great dispite the facts."

  • 2 Standout Companies Among Junior Rare Earth Miners [View article]
    All REE's were relatively slow moving today. Lots of trades, but spreads remained pretty tight. Only $4.40 MCP spread with 8.4mil trades. Lynas only had 977k trades with a $.10 spread. CHGS 1.7mil trades with a $.42 spread. CHGS' high was the same as the open $3.78. SLW had a lot of action today but ended on the downside. Those that held on and sold at the high did quite good. All in all it was a pretty quiet day for the stocks I watch.

    Looks to me that 4-5 years would be a minimum.

  • Rare Earth Stocks Are in a Bubble [View article]
    Most of this authors arguments is old information that for some reason some keep banging the bell trying louder and louder to convince the world that REE's are not worth what people are willing to pay for it. There are enough mining companies out there that are solid and financially backed for one reason, their product has value and people are buying it. Whether or not their stock price goes up or down may simply be economy usage related rather that hyper-over zealous stock traders responding. I give the traders more credit than this.

  • Will Gold Tumble as Mining Revs Up? [View article]
    I'm not sure if we all vote gold to climb so we can convince ourselves that we made a good purchase and know what we're doing, or if the rest want it to drop so they can tell everybody, "I told you so!" Either way, it's the 2nd best show in town.

    SLW silver market is right now the best show in town. Climbing 20 dropping 10, climbing 30 then dropping 50. Up and down the scales. Spreads after 90 min of trading $2.30 with over 10mil trades. very exciting.
