Who knows? It's a crazy market now. Vista's investment in MIDAS alone was worth 110 million when Fred became CEO (in 2012), and I think it will get Vista 150 million by the time they are acquired. So, from my perspective, this is an incredible steal at these prices.
My thinking is that gold will gain a few dollars, hopefully pass 1400 and push 1500, as the "government shutdown" continues, if it does for a couple of weeks. Im not sure why gold isn't up today, as nothing was done and the dow/s&p are way down today.
