I owned SLW, sold at $34.80. Bought back when it dipped and have a full position again since last week. My post was NOT to insinuate selling.Far from it. My post was to (in jest) poke fun and also make sure we all know, there are other, additional shiney metals out there, and certainly in GOLD miners, coins etc.
I am playing gold with 2 funds. For quite a while. Van Eck and Oppenheimer Spec Min. I will be adding another fund, TBD. I owned gold coins. I own the stock GOLD for 2 years, but have lightened that load as I am duplicating it in my funds. I stopped trading and am holding.
