    The stock (E) is down 0.27% today in Europe, as the news (above) reaches the markets. I have about 2% of my portfolio in ENI, and would like to see a better yearly performance (Currently at 12% YTD in Euro terms).

    [I've heard that argument before but not seen any credible data. Do you have any evidence that GLD is not what it is claimed to be?]

    Try GLD's own prospectus.

    [ of the safest and easiest ways to trade gold is through an ETF. The fund managers buy and store the metal for you...]

    Are you sure about real gold being bought and stored "for us" by managers of the ETF "GLD"? I am not!

  • Eric Sprott - Gold Could Move Up 500% From Current Levels [View article]
    The 10-year treasury bond's yield today being 1.648%, it would take 142% to 265% increase in order for them to offer the levels you refer to as being "mere 4-6%". How many more Americans do you think would be left jobless and homeless on the streets should you (or Mr Volcker) try that kind of a "mere" increase today?

Along with announcing a Dec. 14 Chinese iPhone launch on Friday, Apple mentioned the iPhone 5 was available in 47 countries, a number that disappointed some. But with supply constraints lifting, it looks like the company will support close to 100 by year's end. Shares +1.1%, following tech higher. (PR[View news story]
    47 in Afghanistan, or Australia? Bangladesh, or Brazil? Cuba, or China? Djibouti, or Denmark? Germany, or Ghana? England, or Estonia?

    No wonder retail investors ignore most of the numbers (and the charts, and the MA's) coming out of analysts who want to play the numbers as they want!

    [..remember the trailer next door was going to cost millions one day...]

    No, I don't! It must be one of those "Only in America" things.

    There's a BIG world outside the USA with its own investment traditions and assets, gold being a respectable one.

  • The Gold Price Tumbles But Don't Worry [View article]
    And then, manipulators in the media talk about a "gold bubble(???)" judging by the number of goldless gold certificates GLD or silverless silver certificates SLV in circulation.

    I added 10kg (321oz) silver bullion last week. Getting it has been more difficult than carrying it.

SLW is growing production at a 70% rate, he says, noting much of the expansion has begun and is anchored by low-cost assets such as Penasquito in Mexico and Pascua-Lama in Chile and Argentina. [View news story]
    Good news about SLW (and HL, and physical silver) is good for me.

  • Apple (AAPL) roundup: 1) The iPhone 5 models meant for China Unicom (CHU) and China Telecom's (CHA) networks have received the final clearances needed from Chinese regulators. CHA has already begun taking pre-orders. 2) A Dutch court has ruled some older Samsung hardware infringes Apple's rubber-banding patent, recently invalidated by the USPTO. 3) The delayed iTunes 11 might finally arrive today. 4) With the completion of its new spaceship-like Cupertino HQ pushed back to 2016, Apple is building a new campus in nearby Santa Clara. [View news story]
    Let's digest the China news until one of the resident full-time AAPL haters here on SA will come with the usual "But Steve is dead" line. Never fails!

    Apple earnings and shares will climb until 34 August 2015 lunchtime but then will sink to $ 106.73 in the afternoon. 35 August 2015 will open even lower if it rains! Tim Cook doesn't know it but we do.
