All good things DO come to an end. This board has jumped the shark. I can't point to any one post/thread but somewhere, some time this winter the SLW board fell from its glorious heights. GLTA I hope there's a reversal soon.
Personally, I sold my SLW in Nov and bought CLCT which reinstated its dividend. The stock has doubled from that point and just increased its dividend again by 20%. In my mind, it is a leveraged play on metals as it grades rare coins. Yield 8.5%. Unit growth of 30% based on the unit counter on the PCGS home page. I mentioned this stock back then and 1 or 2 folks bought in and have done nicely.
Dbtunr: I traded this stock alot over the last few years. I did big dollars in business with them having sport cards graded by PSA. The only concern that I have is the larger PSA division. Value will tank again if the markets weaken. Also older sport cards are getting rarer, so less are being graded. Today sport cards are printed like the FED with few worth grading.
ESPECIALLY that creep YDM! Who needs someone up all night posting distillation of commentary from half dozen boards or that stupid economic calendar or distillation of entire world markets in a headline in a post I can read in five seconds! All that insight just interferes with my once a month blather about Oblamma, pot and invisible gods!
Yeah, this board has gone to the dogs. YDM is just a symptom.
I think there hasn't really been much movement in silver for a while, lots of smoke, but not much fire. If the long predicted silver default ever happens then the board will come back with a vengeance.
