  • 6 Stocks Under $5 That Look Undervalued To Cash Flows [View article]
    Hecla HL is the buy of the year as well as North American Palladium PAL. Truly undervalued & I've been saying it since the plunge.
    The problem also lies with such light volume as investors are just not buying. I would be cautious in the upcoming weeks and HDGE your portfolio with any downturn in the market with an SDS SDOW SPXU SH DXD EUO I think we will see M&A Activity in the GDXJ GDX GLDX space.
    The next will also be NANO & STEM space with the PFE BMY SNY
    More will follow. They use this BS about uncertainty but business is as usual and PAAS just bought MFN & we may see some in the REMX REE space. UXG has had a great run SA is a great buy. As far as Mid Tier HL is the best of breed and have been around a long time and one of the only companies that are paying a dividend.

  • Silver: Historical Upside Potential [View article]
    I think Silver both technically & fundamentally is poised for breakout as the chart you Show which also displays the great accumulation period.
    Both Short & Long Term I believe SLV PSLV Physical Silver is the most undervalued Precious Metal & has been going up on Chinas Finance Minister has openly accused the U.S & EU for surpressing the price of Precious Metals.
    This was in a Forbes Article and they believe Gold should be 5000 per ounce & Silver should be 600-930 per ounce depending on Demand.
    Long Term I would not doubt this considering what happened with Palladium when Ford just swept in and PALL has never been the same.
    There is not a single Corporation who will want a supply chain disruption & the thinner our electronics are is the more PSLV being used.
    If Gold does reach levels per ounce that are to expensive you can & most likely would see the Historic levels come back to that ratio.
    The U.S had the largest strategic stockpiles of SLV in the world which is all gone.
    It's encouraging to see SLV going up on it's own accord and if you have a long term outlook Silver in my opinion is the BUY of THE CENTURY.
    Do not trust everything you hear on CNBC
    China is making Currency pacts with Countries Japan, Brazil, Russia, even the U.K. Their goal within less than 10 years is to become The World Reserve Currency.
    The Chinese Government is encouraging their people to buy Gold & Silver. This is what may be checkmate.
    If we loose Our Status as The World Reserve Currency we will see a devaluation in the USD that would likely have GLD & SLV truly go parabolic & do what China wants it to do.
    All year in 2011 I wrote blogs of Chinas Government buying Gold quietly. China is now the 2nd Largest Holder of Gold in the World just behind the U.S.
    Call them what you want but they think long term & we have a Government that is Broken & Corrupt ALL of them with their own Agendas. Senators, Congress are not subject to rules of Insider Trading and you can read the book "Throw Them All Out" it has names of Politicians that were buying options on SQQQ FAZ QID etc. During the financial crisis. It makes me sick & they are KILLING America.

  • The Remarkable Rise In The Price Of Silver [View article]
    Silver is trading at or near 100 Day MA with an upside to at least touch 35 over the short term. It's remarkable how it has been trading with base metals and yet if you have a Long Term Outlook it's it the most undervalued as a Precious Metal.
    As Industrial use Japan & the U.S. Are looking for alternatives in Rare Earth Elements and are testing boundaries with Silver.
    To many people use the correlation of The Hunt Brothers Scenario which was manipulation. Not to say that Chinas Finance Minister has openly accused the U.S & EU for surpressing the price of Precious Metals.
    This was in a Forbes Article and they believe Gold should be 5000 per ounce & Silver should be 600-930 per ounce depending on Demand.

  • Why Gold-Related Investments Are Slowly Becoming Worthless [View article]
    Gold will continue to go up and at the very least prices are going to be here and stabilize for NOW.
    What is amazing is your a BABY BOOMER. As clueless as they come (no offense)
    This is not the days of Reagan, Get Over It! Brazil is not a 3rd World Country, China makes NYC look like Gotham City.
    Different time and Era, we have a rotting Infrastructure and China hacks into our Computer systems everyday for fun.
    Why does this have to do with Gold?
    Economics 101- I'll take you back to your 3rd grade class of simple Supply & Demand. They do not even have enough to support the amount of Money in the ETFs.
    Imagine that. They do not allow audits, they do not allow anyone to view the vaults. They just give a print out of the Tonnes.
    I wrote my article ALL last year that China was buying Gold quietly as they can.
    Now they are the 2nd largest Holder of Gold in the World.
    They are talking USD out of the system. They know our every strategic move.
    Chinas Finance Minister openly accused the U.S. & EU for suppressing the prices of Precious Metals & Gold should be at 5000 dollars & Silver should be 6-930 dollars depending on demand & Gold on Debt.
    WE HAVE NO GROWTH!
    China is making deals around the world to become The World Reserve Currency & they are executing with Precision.
    They are Opening their own Precious Metals Exchange in June 2012 so they can buy in their own Currency.
    They have more InternetUsers than we have in our Entire Population
    They will have their problems but they will also have their solutions.
    The World has changed & We lack Leadership.
    One needs to step back and evaluate because China in making Stratgeic Alliances as we flounder & fight over a 4 % tax hike.
    Never mind education, Innovation, R&D after all who needs that. Were Americans. Wake Up. This is a very Ignorant Article. Never Under Estimate your Competition.
    I worked on Wall Street at Morgan Stanley and All you need to do is look at the chart of the dollar since we went off the Gold standard & our DEBT and it is in perfect symmetry and the fact is we are surpressing the dollar. This is no Secret. I do not believe the notion of fiat currency and all with go to zero and you can only thank that for technology otherwise it may have been possible.
    On top of it ALL over 800 new regulations a year go on the books for the past 20 years because our Country is being Run by a Bunch of Lawyers. What do you think our Senators, Congressmen. Women did before that go into the power vacuum in DC? Stay at home cooks? A Doctor?. How do you think they got to this seats. Dr. Ron Paul is probably the most qualified and understands the Monetary System better than anyone including our own President BUT we get sold and people go for the Pitch & Charisma. That is a Statistical Fact
    I am with Warren Buffett that they should have tee sand if they go over spending3% of GDP. They are OUT!
    There needs to start to be accountability otherwise we will have our own Greek Tragedy! Only ours will be much worse because we can lose our Status as The World Reserve Currency. That is what is at Stake. Where will Gold be Then?

  • Wild Gyrations In Commodities And Gold [View article]
    Great Article. The first Baby Boomer to understand that this is simple Economics 101 of Supply & Demand.
    I'm Generation X & the BIG difference in investing in today's markets is as long as "The Status Quo" where today we have REAL iceos who come & go and run Americas Largest Corporations with NO Accountability.
    As a Financial Advisor myself it's just as important to look at management who may have a great team and great performance in a stock for a few years.
    I would recommend and have said many times people have to look at their portfolio in shorter durations.
    The long term problem I see despite the fact the S&P has had no REAL GRASS ROOTS Growth.
    Americas Corporations that have no globalized have also began something that nobody is seeing as the short term profits will lead to long term losses.
    This is called "The Law of Diminishing Returns" where American Companies are giving up their most Precious Commodity which is their INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY.
    Ex. GE signs a deal with China to manufacturer a product for 1 or 10 BILLION they will never see The China Syndrome come back and make that same order. Now multiply that with ALL the U.S. & EU Companies as you cannot discount European Engineers as some of the best in the World as well.
    This will come back to haunt.
    Commodities such as Gold Silver Palladium & Platinum will become simple supply & Demand.
    There was an recent article as the SLV & GLD ETFs even come into question as they will not allow an audit or see the vaults and imagine if people who owned these demanded their Gold & Silver in physical bullion it would be parabolic.
    CEF is the Central Fund of Canada so for those who invest long term into these precious metals if you invest 10,000 dollars they simply buy 5,000 dollars in Silver & 5,000 in Gold.
    More over with the new usages they are finding with these Metals is increasing over time.
    I say it before & I'll say again, I know when I'm 65 in 30 years I do believe that metals no matter what will be worth more than today. Although you loose the power of compounding interest one must always be diversified.

  • SLV GLD & The USD UUP USO "The Year of The Dragon" China Opens Their Own Precious Metals Exchange in June 2012 [View instapost]
    China Scheduled To Open Their Own Precious Metals Exchange so they can buy Gold Silver Platinum Palladium & all Precious Metals in their own Currency. They are laying groundwork to become The World Reserve Currency. They signed Currency Pact with Japan & Brazil to try and rid themselves of the USD
    In the meanwhile who's to say what GLD & SLV This move may have the Miners from the SIL GDX GDXJ NUGT & DUST which are starting to hold some of the metals on their balance sheets along with Cash. China is working aggressively to Become The World Reserve Currency & the U.S is at risk over the next 10 years or Less if we do not Invest in our Nation & Our People Both Private & Public Sector Need A National Smart Grid Infrastructure Project. Secure Our Energy Needs & Clean Our Own Backyard

  • Low-Priced, High-Potential Stocks That Look Ready To Soar [View article]
    Great Article. The UUP which is the USD bull index still has key supports and as long as low rates, high deficits, political gridlock many analysts scratch there head on Gold.
    We are in A New World & even if Precious Metals do not go up although I believe GOLD will hit 2500 in 2012 but assume they stay at these levels and im wrong and Gold is at 1500 most of the companies with good management, little to no debt these companies are going to still have great quarters and revenue growth.

    I do NOT trust China, June 2012 they open their own precious metals Exchange so they can buy Gold Silver Palladium & Platinum in their own Currency.
    They are taking very strong measures to become The World Reserve Currency & the New Japan China Currency pact is designed to do just that
    They signed a deal in Afghanistan for OIL & they are really pursuing influence throughout the world.

    This ties to Gold & Silver & even Rare Earths which just had a huge run. REE almost doubled this week.
    I do believe we may see a correction in Gold & the risk trade will be on in the DIA SPY QQQ for the 1st and MAYBE 2nd qtr although we have seen a HUGE rally already. DIA up 11% in 3 months.
    I'm all about any improvement in America but the last jobs number was a joke!
    People only read headlines & not the underlying issues.
    I'm not a gold bug but holding gold & silver as a long term investment is a preservation of wealth.
    There are many miners that have outperformed GLD & SLV and made quite a bit.
    Most miners have a higher Beta so you need the stomach for volatility & for those who want the exposure to the entire sector can go into SIL GDX & GDXJ. Then there is NUGT 3x Velocity Bull Miners & DUST which is the Bear inverse 3x as well in the mining group.
    There has been a disconnect with the USD UUP or UUPT & USO / OIL which maybe temporary.

    These stocks jumped right out of the gate this last week which was the first week of trading in 2012 & waiting for pullback. The USD is still the most liquid market throughout the World and we may see massive inflows into the dollar if we have the EUO which is the Euro Short that I recommended over 2 months ago in my older stock talks along with the miners back in November & I recommended SWC PAL REE but rising dollar may hit Gold.
    Again we are start to seeing a disconnect and most of. The Reagan Era guys are scratching their heads & just coming to terms with the fact that there are other countries in the World.

    I think you should also look at HL Which is one of the very few that pays a dividend.
    I use to work on Wall Street at Morgan Stanley and I hope we can get a pullback. It seems risk trade is on and technically we are in bit of bear territory so I'm a bit more cautious.
    Either way prices for 2012 on GOLD SILVER PALLADIUM PLATINUM are volatile but look to be stable for 2012 which means profits for miners.
    We need to watch the Eurozone & China. If China gets hit commodity stocks along with the market will have a pull back.
    What people do not understand is China will have their problems but they will also have their solutions. They are the 2nd largest Economy in the world with a revised annual GDP for 8% for 2012 which dwarfed that of Japan.
    They should not be taken lightly & that may add to the catalyst of the rise in Precious Metal Prices. In Forbes Magazine a few months back the Finance Minister of China openly accused the U.S & EU for surpressing the price of gold and it should be at 5000 an ounce and silver should be between 6-900 an ounce depending on demand given all the fiscal deficits we have & unfunded liabilities.
    One day will come when China no longer needs to rely on us or need to buy our debt.
    Another HEdge is ticker HDGE and gor Gold there is GLL which is more volatility that bets on GLD going down.

  • THE STATUS QUO HAS TO GO - Americas Tipping Point [View instapost]
    President Eisenhower saw this coming & warned us to "NEVER let our Corporations sway our political interests & views in Our VAST INDUSTRIAL MILITARY COMPLEX" 50 + Years Ago he saw this coming & this was he's outgoing speech. Now 50+ Years later & LOOK where we are & Look at What We Are Witnessing.
    Our Government is Broken & Dysfunctional. They argue over 4% tax increase with NO discussion of Education, Innovation, R&D which is what made America great along with manufacturing.
    Steve Jobs an American Icon who will be in Our History books actually worked with these components & that's what we are missing.
    The CEO of Dow Chemical said it best is the people who are manufacturing & making these products are going to be the ones who make the 2nd, 3rd, 4th generation of products!
    Our Government is putting 800 NEW laws on the books every year for over 10 Years! Do the math & they wonder why they are not seeing International Investment & we have had an inefficient government policy making.
    Many countries are trying to get out of the dollar.
    The S&P has gone nowhere in 10 years, in fact Art has brought a better return than stocks. It was on the Kudlow Report.
    We NEED to get off OIL & we start manufacturing again and use some type of Model of Germany and build upon and look at our BIGGEST PICTURE.
    WE ARE LOSING MARKET SHARE!
    Ex. Boeing, GE signs a multi Billion Dollar Deal with the Chinese it will only be ONCE. You will NEVER see it come back again because China which is the market we all want to be in saves themselves 100s of Billions in R&D and got Modern Technology for Pennies on the USD. This has given then a great foundation for their Innovation & Education. The best part is they are getting U.S & EU technology which is the best of both worlds. Do not discount European Engineers.
    This is called "THE LAW OF DIMISHING RETURNS"
    Unless Corporations Unite or relocate their short term profits will lead to Long Term Losses & The worst part is we have REAL iceos who are running Americas largest Corporations who pinch pennies for their quarterly earnings with absolutely no accountability & at this point the Real Founders of these Corporations are rolling in their graves and they should have a Fidicuary & Moral Obligation to Invest in the place whence they came is The United States of America.
    If this Status Quo Does NOT Go Their will Eventually be a Revolution.
    We have CORRUPTION between our Politicians & Corporations right in ALL of our faces that is KILLING America and its People. AA is under 10 dollars and US Steel is at 25-28 dollars, GE at 18 etc. Believe me the list goes on. That is "The Law of Dimishing Returns"
    Do you think Jeff Immelt cares about America?
    Do you think Larry Ellison cares about America? Although he did get back Americas World Cup in Yacht Racing.
    I have not seen one patriotic Billionaire do our contribute anything in the U.S. where they created their wealth for the exception of Warren Buffet investing into FSLR. KKR has even dipped it's toe into Renewables
    We need A REAL GAME CHANGER & DO THE IMPOSSIBLE & Common Sense Solutions!
    That's what America was all about yet I have yet to see anything great happen.
    Now we have the can't can't do attitude. If the status quo stays in my opinion buy GLD as preservation of wealth because America may never be the same.
    Buying Gold & Silver Miners this year and I think you would do just fine. Picking investments is easy. I out did Paulson & Soros. They just use other people's money. Give me a Billion and I'll show you some returns.

  • Americas Resource War - The TRILLIONS in Future Losses is Yet To Come [View instapost]
    Americas Corporations & China. "THE LAW OF DIMINISHING RETURNS" Chinas Motives & actions send a message loud & clear. They have the BEST of BOTH worlds with U.S. & EU technology. Do not count out European Engineering. Anytime any of these Corporations sign a Multi Billion Dollar Deal I assure it it will be ONCE for that specific product & contract and these Chinese will just re engineer it and sell it to other suppliers and they saved themselves much more in BILLIONS of USD. Then they invest into their own innovation & engineering. They are doing everything they can to take out the USD & no longer will need to rely on us. THESE ARE SHORT TERM PROFITS THAT WILL LEAD TO LONG TERM LOSSES! We have real iceos that are running Americas largest Corporations with NO accountability. This should be duly noted and taken with the most SERIOUS view. It can be our Demise. This is for the Future of Our Nation. For AMERICA!

  • A Simple Formula For The Fair Price Of Gold [View article]
    This is the CRAZIEST chart I can ever see & you want to go back 200 years where their was slavery so free labor would make any country the wealthiest on the planet. Then you forget about only 50 years or so until the stock market crash of 1929 which then follows the Great Depression.
    After than we had WWII which not by fault but made this Country SO RICH. Who do you think was selling metals, concrete, cars, parts, planes, infrastructure and it was President Eisenhower who is the only General of the 20th Century That was President of The United States of America.
    His outgoing speech was not playful but a WARNING SIGN. You can YouTube it and his outgoing speech warned us and he created the word and said our Vast "INDUSTRIAL MILITARY COMPLEX" and that we should never let our political views lie with Corporate Interest as it would surely can be our demise.
    HERE WE ARE. Corruption has never been so in our face on BOTH sides of the isle with their BS organizations & BS Foundations that is KILLING America.
    I did not know this till today that our Politicians are creating an average of 800 Laws a Year for the past 20 Years! This will without any hesitation or mental reservation dampen growth in our Nation.
    We have record corporate profits without jobs. Average Americans productivity has gone up 45% because now 2 people have to work since wages are flat from 1980 but the rising cost of fuel, food, taxes, consumption of many other goods have gone up & quality of life goes down so divorce rates have been going up and has become a norm.
    In order to create an article you must know history. I am not a gold bug but I was a broker and trader in futures and commodities at Morgan Stanley.
    Why don't you pull up the chart of the dollar and the rising debt which in theory gold should be much higher.
    Many countries are trying to get out of the dollar. The S&P has gone nowhere in 10 years, in fact Art has brought a better return than stocks. It was on the Kudlow Report.

  • Can Gold ETFs Push To A New Record High In 2012? [View article]
    There are way to many bullish factors in GLD. It still has not kept up with inflation for one & there are many wild cards.
    Although the GDX GDXJ and NUGT Miners are down in 2011 we can see much M&A Activity. It takes years from Exploration to production and is more cost effective for buyouts.
    Gold has turned into an asset class even though Paulson sold 35% of his GLD & Soros said he sold all of his GOLD twice this year.
    Iran launching test missiles they got from China who got their technology from us. America is loosing influence and credibility throughout the world & new alliances are being born.
    Nobody mentioned the fact that the huge move in the USD UUP & UUPT brought down Commodity prices and barely moved the needle on OIL
    Lack of American Leadership & I do not care for party politics. I care for AMERICA! And there has been no Energy Policy not only for Americans but for National Security , Consumers & Corporations alike. We should not switch fron one liquid Gold to another as our grand old plan but Nat Gas, Solar, Wind, Hydro, Kinetic energy should ALL be on the table which would increase corporate profits & consumer spending that would help cut our long term deficit.
    Companies like LMT BA GD GE need strategy for U.S. Interest. When Boeing, GE Lockheed, General Dynamics sign a multi Billion Dollar deal with China it will only be ONCE for that specific product and NEVER to be seen again.
    China will re engineer & are investing in their technology & Innovation.
    ALL of this has to do with GLD. The SPY has gone nowhere since the 70s because Corporate Profits are at record highs so why would jobs not be at record levels?
    Our quality of life has been diminishing & American Productivity is up 45% with wages flat since 1980 but the cost of living along with food, energy,oil taxes have all gone up.
    Since the debasement of the USD you can see the HUGE rise in debt so the value of the dollar has decreased.
    Within the next 10 years or less we may lose the status of the USD being the World Reserve Currency.
    The BIG Catalyst aside from the China & Japan not using dollars and China laying out their Mid Term ground work.
    June of 2012 China is opening Their own Precious Metals Exchange so they can buy GLD SLV PYHS PSLV in their own Currency to take out USD and buy in their own Renbimini and the Yuan. This may change the course as China has been quietly buying Gold in 2011 and cutting back Silver Exports by 5%.
    Moreover their Finance Minister has accused the U.S. Of suppressing the price of Precious Metals and given outstanding debts throughout the world and all the liabilities Gold should should be at 5000 per ounce & Silver should be between 6-930 per ounce depending on demand.
    The Time for Politics is OVER!
    I don't care if your a dem , reb, ind, etc.
    America is at a tipping point & the day we loose status as the World Reserve Currency our dollar will be worthless & China will no longer need us then it will cost $10 per gallon at the pump that will turn to stagnation, deflation & inflation. They talk about China slowdown & Property Bubbles. China will have their problems & they will have their solutions. They are the 2nd Largest Economy in the World & their slowdown projection was revised to 8% GDP which is still strong and dwarfed that of Japan.
    China hacked into Americas largest OIL & GAS Exploration along with Energy & Mining companies, They planted bugs in computers & data servers for Government Computers and they know our supply chain to tap into Americas Secrets which was all on the news. They are selling bad,used,military equipment to Raytheon RTN which puts our soldiers at risk and they just hacked into the U.S. Chamber of Commerce & The F.B.I last week This can all be seen on YouTube or google.
    China FXI The YINN & YANG should not be taken lightly
    Their actions and motives speak for itself. They even study our own History Culture and use some of our old CIA Tactics. All recent this year & all on the news.

    Within 10 years or less IF we smarten up & get rid of the Corruption between our Corporations & Lobbyists and these politicians HAVE to go. They should all have capped terms so new young fresh minds can get together & we dont have to worry about putting the Full Faith & Credit of The United States of America over some old guys with old beefs between each other.
    They are KILLING America!

    Kapitall- you do much research. How did American build the Hoover Dam in 1936 which now produces over 4 BILLIONkw of electricity yearly & 70+years later. A QUANTUM LEAP in Technology between solar, wind, hydro, kinetic, etc Energy can we not electrify the United States. We need our OWN Manhattan Project. I can give you stock picks all day long as well. The market is not buying much in fundamentals but more on emotion. Americanindependenceen... did a study that if we covered 3% of Arizonas land mass we would electrify AMERICA! What are we waiting for. Even if the brainiacs are off you put wind turbines along the coast and you can look into the ETF KWT GEX PWND FAN and see their largest positions and take it from the top.
    We are loosing our influence in the world. We played the dollar trick today and all commodities went down except for OIL.
    New alliances are being born and the geopolitical landscape is changing which has a lot to do with my investment views.
    Aside from that we need to take some REAL LEADERSHIP & change course for the WORLD to look to us for that leadership.
    China is stealing Americas Largest Corporations Precious Commodity. It's their INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY. Then you get to the basis. It's The Law of Diminishing Returns.
    U.S. Steel classic example,they, GE , BA will begin to lose market share. Stock valuations are cheap but where's the growth. The answer is it's being STOLEN.
    when GE or BA or RTN who should be embarrassed of the all sChina new their supply chain better then they did and study us to a tee.
    Understand this when these companies signed a Multi BILLION dollar contract for specific products it will only be ONCE. There will no other contract on that product because Immelt at GE who has no stake and is a iceo with no accountability will do the deal for short sighted earnings that will in fact lead to Long Term LOSSES.
    Niall Ferguson, Paul Krugman, Thomas Friedman have spoke about this.
    We are asleep at the wheel while China just hacked into the U.S. Chamber or Commerce, our largest Oil & Exploration Companies, the Pentagon and I do not doubt there are listening to every single agency from The White House,to the Senate, Congress,the CIA, NSA, probably NASA and they are getting the best of our technologies.
    Not only are the getting American Innovation They are also getting All of the EU Innovation as well and anyone that takes them lightly has already lost.
    Never under estimate an opposing force and their actions speak for themselves.
    BOTTOM LINE- Can you research our small cap companies with their most advanced technologies and bring it up front to GD GE RTN BA to only be made here.
    Look what China did to HEV. They signed a deal as the company was desperate for cash, they had advancedNanotechnology in their batteries and took their Intellctual Property. The stock tanked!
    There will be more to come if we do not sign an agreement with China. They want their terms, their ways with little to no compromise on top of hacking us everyday.
    Actions speak louder than words.

    I'm the one that writes on Twitter and never fails. The Market will get propped up so when people get their Retirement Savings Accounts, 401k statements etc. It won't look as bad so the masses feel more comfortable to spend. It never fails and increasing consumer confidence. The market has rallied at the end of every month. This week is very thin so can be volatile
