  • Yongye May Be Poised for a Rally [View article]
    JelleV, every one of your comments on seekingalpha has been in defense of a Reverse Merger fraud. (CHBT, YONG, SCEI, etc). It is crystal clear that you either 1) have no business commenting on SeekingAlpha, as you are clueless or 2) you are part of the fraud. My guess is #2. Your silly statement that BEA has a "lack of knowledge" about YONG obviously means that you have not read his article about the company, or have read it and ignored it.

  • China-Biotics: Executing Solidly on Growth Plans Means Great Things to Come [View article]
    Sean, where have you been? Certainly if you thought CHBT was a great buy at $8.50, you must think it is an incredible buy at $5/share. Ha! Guess the fraud pumping gig isnt working out too good for you, so apparently you have left the stage.

  • Chart of the Week: XIV Celebrates 6-Month Birthday [View article]
    Bill, thanks for your article. I have had a short position in VXX for some time, as I think it is product that was DESIGNED to decay over time to zero because of its persistant negative roll yield. I was very happy to have come across XIV a few weeks ago which seems to be an inverse mirror of VXX, which in theory then, should rise to infinity over time (or to very high levels over the ETN's lifespan), because of a persistant POSITIVE roll yield. If you look at a chart of XIV and VXX on the same graph, it is pretty amazing at how negatively coorelated they are. I have read the prospectus for XIV, and am really trying to figure out the risks in buying XIV for the long term. There will obviously be huge short term risks during volatility spikes (i.e if a nuclear bomb goes off, XIV could lose most of its value), but I cannot figure out why XIV will not continue to go to higher highs over time (even in the intermediate term - perhaps years - after a nuclear bomb goes off, or there is some other catastrophic event) when volatility returns to normal. Yes, if you buy this ETN you are taking on the credit risk of Credit Suisse, but what are the other risks that you can see.? I was thinking that if the value of the ETN got too high (lets say that XIV went to $10,000 -intial price was $100), then the obligation of Credit Suisse to the holders of this ETN would be a very high $10 billion (based on a $100 million offering), and that would be a risk that CS would not be able to pay . But, my understanding is that Credit Suisse hedges their obligations, so they would effectively not have a loss in XIV, and would still profit from the daily fee they charge on the ETN (which is minimal compared to the possible gains of the ETN holders) regardless of the price of XIV. I know the prospectus' of all velocity shares ETN's say they will likely go to zero over time. I do think that is true, EXCEPT for XIV and ZIV, which both have persistant positive roll yields.

    In theory it seems possible to get double digit returns over the lifetime of this ETN, which would be extraodinary. But the way I look at it, the ETN is structured in such a way (just as a short VXX position would be) as to mimic offering insurance to those investors hedging against volatility, and there can be alot of money made off of insurance policies, by the issuer of those policies. VXX can only go down 100% over time, but XIV can theoretically go up much more, which is why I like it more than a short position in VXX. Would those types of returns be your expectations over time?

  • Why Synergy Pharmaceuticals Could Go From $4 to $40 [View article]
    Good article JA. Watched SGYP's last presentation earlier this year, and doesnt seem like they will have any revenues from Plecanatide until 2014/2015, but seems like a tremendous amount of potential for the company and worth the wait.

    Also, CLSP still owns approx 50% of this company, so are you still as bullish on them as well?

  • Giant Interactive: The Cheapest Stock in China [View article]
    I thought that GA would be a long term hold for me, but I did a 180 today and sold my entire stake today in the company because of this article:
    Perhaps the tone of the message is skewed by the Chinese-American translation, but for Yuzhu Shi to introduce Chinese nationalism into the controversy between Alibaba Group and Yahoo, and to call Jack Ma a "patriotic maverick" (whatever that is) concerns me.

    There appears to be a business relationship between Jack Ma of Alibaba and Yuzhu Shi of GA.

    The whole issue could be innocuous, but with all the problems that Chinese stocks listed on US exchanges have been having, and with thousands of potential stock investments out there, a statement from GA's CEO with an Anti-American/Japanese flavor is enough for me, an American shareholder, so Im out.

    I made a very nice profit and I thank JA for introducing me to the company, but I want no part of a company with a CEO who would say these things.

  • Giant Interactive: The Cheapest Stock in China [View article]

    I think we can say objectively that GA just had an excellent quarterly report. Even after the run up after hours to $9.80, take out the $4/share in cash, and the stock is selling at about 8-9 X 2011 earnings. Not bad for investors after already pocketing a nice dividend earlier this year. We will have to see what they say on the conference call, but I dont see a reason to sell here. Thanks James.

  • The Silver Correction Is Over, Next Stop $62 [View article]
    Michael Anderson?? Glad to see you came out of your cave, after relentlessly pumping those "crap" Chinese RTO frauds like CCME that recently stopped trading, while at the same time ridiculing anyone who knew, correctly, that CCME was a fraud. Do you really think you have any credibility left to even make a comment on SA? I mean, it really doesnt get much worse. You were self servingly pumping a fraud that was clear to anyone with common sense. Where is the apology to SA readers and your followers? You just pump CCME, it gets exposed as a fraud, gets delisted, and then you move on with no comment?

    Sorry to the author and readers of this post, but jokers like Michael Anderson should be called out.

  • 6 Reasons I Am in TBT and Cash Now [View article]
    Cant say I understand what is happening.
    Inflation in the US surging.
    Inflation around the world surging. Foreign banks are tightening or sending signals they will be tightening.
    Gold, silver and many other commodities at new highs, seemingly everyday.
    US debt on negative credit watch.

    Yet, investors continue to pile into US bonds. The two year at 2.05% is strange, with 5 year inflation expectations around 3%. Why would anyone buy? Or is just the Fed buying?

  • Three 'Short-Proof' Chinese Stocks [View article]
    Strange, strange, strange PR. Seems like the company is distancing itself from the CEO, yet the CEO owns 30.9% of the stock.

  • CCME: Accusations About Inability of Deloitte as Auditor Debunked, SEC Filings Correct [View article]

    Shouldnt you have prefaced your conclusion that "Accusations about the inability of Deloitte as an auditor debunked. SEC filings are correct" with "In my opinion"? Clearly it wasnt a fact as your statement made it appear to be - it was your opinion. And your opinion was horrifically wrong.

    Your declarative statement is analagous to the Catholic Church saying: "Accusations of Galileo dubunked: Sun revolves around the Earth."
