    I'm looking at historic 25-year charts for many-all gold stocks, and they are all trending-off such historic lows. Yeah, many could characterize the past x5 years as "bubble" years in gold, "so-and-thus", but I would argue that, unlike bubble pricing, where valuation is trumped in favor of an irrational euphoria, gold prices however deserve every bit of thei $1k to $2k march; Albeit, a little heady in the ferocity to march that far that fast, the underpinning of gold's ascension are well in tact, imo.

    Liquidity proffered by the Fed, to the tune of $5-trillion. Market trading at record highs! Seriously! In the day, Markets used to trade according to fundamental strength of the US-world economy, not the Fed's magic wand. These past x5 years or so, the Market has reacted to "Fed speak", as if they are the driver of the all important US consumption. The Fed has forced money into the Market by suppressing yield the world over. This can't/won't last forever, and if the Fed is ever proved to be impotent, especially when the Market retreats, that's when people will scorn bit-coins and virtual society (twitter, face-book and all these digitally based economies) and come face to the reality of our situation: China overtakes the US as the world's biggest economy, the recent stock-market bubble is thoroughly popped, b/c the Fed is powerless to inject another $ trillion or so to inflate the bubble (does no-one find it totally scarey that the Fed, not the broad-based US-consumer is the driver of this record-high Market?), serious US-climate driven drought causes severe food inflation (already seeing this, 1lb of Kroger brand butter is now $4, along with a gallon of milk!) Severe beef challenges, as West Texas turns from cattle to fracking, taking precious water resources away from agriculture!

    We are living in a absolute fantasy, imo But aside from all this "doom and gloom", just looking at 25-year charts for gold-Co. stock should give hope here. Hmy is severely und

    Sentiment: Hold

    I find Scottrade much-much better, and I laud them for having a nice, Java-base streamer, something AMTD took away from us, even though we protested loudly and vehemently! AMTD deserves ZERO retail business!

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

    From all the short-gold algorithms! Yeah, I don't easily forget their "all is well with the economy call". Gold to $1k, b/c the economy will show strength, and inflation will be muted. But that fairly tale is BUNK! Look at this mixed-bag, Fed-induced bubble-like B/S going-on! Inflation picking-up selectively (pound of butter now over $4.00 and Milk at $4.00 a gallon!...Oh yeah, I forgot, we must exclude "food-and-energy"! How about that 10-year note! It has lost -5% of value in the last 2-days! What a screwed-up pot-luck of data points! I don't buy-it, this record-high market, while the masses reel and wonder where the jobs all are! We've even gotten to where we cheer the latest and greatest employment numbers as good, b/c the participation rate is so negative that we've essentially removed millions from the equation! But it is/was a lie all along. Big-money's aversion to pain sought the succor of the mighty Fed, and it's $5-trillion dollar stock-market bubble-pump....Did you buy-in the scam? When's the last time you've seen a record high stock market when the underlying fundamentals (i.e. people with good paying jobs and plenty of disposable income) is this diminished. Yet, how much longer can they keep the charade going? There will be a true price to pay for inflating a Market that should never have been where it is, based on how it got there! After all this, it has become plainly evident that the Fed, the stock Market, and those that wish to feed the lie, are more than deceivers, they are enablers of a mass pain to befall us all, when the show can't go on any longer! Ask yourself this, what kind of paper would you like to hold, when the Fed is powerless to save the show any longer? The answer lies in the 10-year, where you are seeing folks scrambling to buy this bond, at this paltry percent! It's sick man, SICK!

    My thoughts EXACTLY! He needs to be SUPER-PURGED, a la flushed! This has become a penny stock under his behest, and not only that, but his ANC-dealing has resulted in an SEC investigation that has never ended, and he's gotten paid millions-upon-millions for his carnage at GFI. The guy is a BUM for us investors, and when I have more time, I'm starting a grass-roots campaign to have him FLUSHED! Sick performance, sick!

    Coach is "too much its own" to lay itself down for the new, upstart MK; hich btw, will lose it's fashionable appeal, a lot sooner than Coach has. But imo, Coach's problems are temporary, b/c they are an iconic brand, with lasting, staying-power, that is unique from the other, more, "flash-in-the-pan, currently trendy, MK". Coach is a purveyor of fine leather goods, and is much more than their "symbol", unlike the flashy MK, that just happens to be "the hot brand" right now.

    All imo!

    Sentiment: Hold

    I agree, he should be held responsible for acts he instigated, from invading Crimea, to covert support for eastern Ukrainian separatist, now involved in a criminal cover-up. Can you imagine being a Dutch family who has lost loved-ones to this crime? And the world isn't acting decisively against this aggressor? Putin's idea of "return to glory" cost innocent people their lives, and we must stand-up and defend against this aggression and crime, with severe penalties and repercussions. Europe and Chine must look elsewhere for there energy needs. Russia must be treated like a pariah state like Iran or North Korea in the world's eyes, until they can join a "league of Nations" and act as a leader of order and human dignity. For now, they are little more than a rogue state with nihilistic, narcissistic aspirations from a megalomaniac leader. All imo.
