Gold is starting to act better and seems to either be less manipulated due to spotlight on the fraud and corruption of the Fed and bullion banks or else the market (BRIC nations mainly) is simply overrunning them and they see the end is in sight. In any even, what we need now is for EGO to have a solid quarter, which they have not had in YEARS. We have had misses, problems, sketchy acquisitions and general lack of any real positive news other than fanciful projections. NOW is the time to have a great production quarter and come out with very, very positive guidance to show that all the actions of the past have had meaning and will finally, finally, finally produce some REAL results. Come on guys - show us what you are made of.
ed schindler - You are correct! This is a function of management and leadership. It has looked in past quarters as if they really did not have a handle on financials and forecasts. True, they do keep costs down, but they certainly have a hard time understanding future business.
