Shanahan optimistic about Revett future
another long read and talks about Rock Creek. Looks like some news will be had early in 2014 with some mining work in 2015
who cares about the little guy? Seriously, GOOG, PCLN, etc all do fine with little guys. Splits are stupid. They increase costs for the company (shareholder mailings, proxies, etc). No split
good info. So how does a company burning so much cash survive until these other engines come on line? CDTI doesn't have 2-3 years to wait. BOD should cut loose any management types earning too much cash that are underperforming. The CEO comes to mind. Make a BOD member the interim CEO until they get cash flow positive.
who cares? Seriously, I don't get it. PCLN, GOOG, AAPL, etc have all done fine without splits. Why does anyone still care about this? It's just an added expense for the company to admin this and makes it more expensive for their share buyback program
I've literally recvd thousands in some of these lawsuits. the biggest was MP3. Sometimes people don't bother filing out the claim forms and their are millions to distribute with few takers. I think the smallest claim I ever got was $50. Considering the paperwork took less than 30 minutes to fill out, not a bad pay off.
not included in the above article snip due to space constraints was the Chinese Panda release from last month. I have to admit that I did not not that foreign coins were released early. This really should smooth out earnings.
not in January. Maybe this can help PCGS smooth out their grading and make December a stronger month
The Coin Analyst: 2014 World Silver Bullion Coins Offer Potential
By Louis Golino on November 21, 2013 9:30 AM
Unlike American silver eagles which are always issued in January, many world bullion coins are released during the final months of the preceding year.
For example, the Perth Mint rolls out its Lunar bullion coins and Kookaburras around Labor Day. The Koala coins are usually released a little later in the fall. However, this year some of Perth’s bullion products were delayed, including the silver Koalas and the ten ounce silver Lunar horses. Bullion dealers are now starting to accept pre-orders for these coins, which will be available in a couple weeks.
The Perth Mint’s press officer, Makeila Ellis, provided the following explanation for the recent delays in the mint’s bullion coin program: “This situation has arisen due to our factory being incredibly busy at this time with strong demand for both bullion and numismatic products. To satisfy existing demand as quickly as possible, we are again operating 24 hours a day, five days a week with double shifts on the weekend.”
Ms. Ellis also said that the 5 ounce bullion silver Lunar horse coins will be released next year.
kook 14 The Coin Analyst: 2014 World Silver Bullion Coins Offer Potential Perth’s Lunar bullion one-ounce coins have a mintage limited to 300,000, and typically acquire strong premiums after several years have passed, but it also depends on which Lunar sign is on the coin. 2012 Dragons, for example, have done better than 2013 snakes.
Institutions take tax losses by Oct 31, as that is the end if their fiscal year. Individuals sell now. If you want in one the "January effect" you need to sell now to buy BEFORE end of year (after the 30 day wait)
hit a high of $17 before ex-div, then a low of $14.70 after ex-div. 50% of that loss would put resistance at $15.85. We just broke through that on the upside. Insider selling took us down. Backlogs still strong. Coming into the busy season soon.
do u really blame them? Market up over 20% this year. what has IDSY done? Promised a lot but has not delivered. BOD should claw back all bonuses and awards. The executive compensation is just egregious.
end of year tax selling. if you have a loss, why not sell now and take the tax break? Buy back (or not) in 30 days at basically the same price.
the guy sure is showing faith
Honda Accord wins Green Car of the Year

green car of the year honda accord hybrid
The Honda Accord was named this year's Green Car of the Year. It comes in gas, hybrid and plug-in hybrid versions.
NEW YORK (CNNMoney)
The Honda Accord was named Green Car of the Year in an award ceremony Thursday at the Los Angeles Auto Show.
The Accord is a mid-sized family sedan that is available in hybrid and plug-in hybrid versions as well as fully gasoline-powered versions with four- and six-cylinder engines.
"Mainstream buyers have long found the Accord a popular choice because of its efficiency, functionality safety and value," Green Car Journal editor Ron Cogan said in a statement. "With the addition of exceptional hybrid and plug-in hybrid versions to the already fuel-efficient Accord line, Honda (HMC)'s Accord becomes an even more compelling choice."
The Accord Hybrid gets EPA-estimated 50 miles per gallon in city driving and 47 on the highway. (Hybrid cars often get better fuel economy in low-speed city driving than in highway cruising.)

The Accord Plug-in gets slightly lower city and highway mileage than the non-plug-in hybrid but it can go 12 miles on a charge before using any gasoline, according to EPA estimates.
Even gasoline-powered Accords are very fuel-efficient for their class. The V6 gets 34 mpg on the highway while the four-cylinder gets 36.
