Trading GDX

Like many here, I think it is matter of time before this sector gets a big run.
In the meantime, look at a 2 year chart of GDX: it is on a cycle of dropping <21 and peaking >24. I'm in for my second round right now, buying at ~21 [more]

Re: PVG

My wife has often told me that not everyone has lived in NYC over 15 years and can actually take offense at sarcasm or criticism - two barbs of intellectual discourse that were considered the norm and an art form at my alma mater, Columbia [more]

Re: PVG

Perhaps Pos, but these guys are no fools. If they chose a method for estimating achievable grades that was favorable to them but perhaps not the best method for their property (something only obvious to someone with geological expertise) - that, in [more]

Re: PVG

This gives me more respect for the expertise of the Angry Geologist whose comments I have posted here before and which led me to sell my shares:

Re: SA....an update of sorts....

This got a chuckle from me.

It makes me think of my big potential 10-bagger - ATC.V

Re: Not-so-virgin olive oil

My understanding is that an olive oil can only be certified extra virgin by expert tasters. In the USA there are no laws that prevent any olive oil from being called extra virgin when a certified panel of experts has not tasted [more]

Re: Pretium reports 3Q results

The last time I read "Angry Geologist" was a link from here and the writer for the publication was decidedly skeptical of the ore grade. This time much less so.

I think his main problem is the methodology of the [more]

Re: Pretium reports 3Q results

The biggest remaining unknown now I guess is how the grades look over the fourth quarter: I'm expecting 15gpT or better. Maybe much better. The bulk sample comparing actual to calculated grades that they did before will not necessarily be [more]

Re: Contrarian heaven.

Only problem is that I have held these same beliefs frequently over the past several years.

Since I now rarely buy individual miners, I look at my investments in GDX and GDXJ which I have long held and add to in times like these.

As a shareholder in BRK, I think I will go have a steak with Heinz 57 sauce...

Re: BRK vs SPX

I have not read all your posts about Dollar Tree, but it seems to me they have no moat. Around my parts we have Family Dollar and Dollar General stores, and it also seems the big boys like Walmart, Target, etc could move hard and fast [more]
