what a bunch of losers posting here. Anyone want to talk about MO?
Great stock. cigs, e-cigs, cigars, smokeless, wine. SABMiller stake is great too. They get over $1B/yr in dividends and exposure to beer and coca cola bottling. SABMiller is the worlds largest Coke bottler.
last year by mid-December, the 30 day coin cert rate was under 120K. Now over 202K. Looks like we are within 1% of last qtrs numbers so far. Will know more in a few days. This will be a record December qtr
ahhh, so now the guy who was telling everyone it was going to $5, $10, $15, has now taken the stance that management is lacking. Hey genius, management didn't do anything to spur this run up. It was all a P&D article. So don't blame management for the fall.
I envision you living in a single wide, watching a tv with rabbit ears, and eating canned beans and cabbage. I bet reality is not that far off.

U.S. Mint to resume selling platinum coins
1:10 p.m. CST, March 5, 2014
The U.S. Mint said it will resume selling its American Eagle platinum bullion coins on March 10, ending a four-year exit from the market, due to renewed interest from investors and dealers.
The U.S. Mint will offer the platinum bullion coins at a 4 percent premium over the spot price. Only 1-ounce coins will be sold, the Mint told authorized dealers in an email on Tuesday that was seen by Reuters.
Tom Jurkowsky, U.S. Mint's director of corporate communications, told Reuters the Mint notified its authorized purchasers about the platinum coin sales on Tuesday.
The Mint has built up an inventory ahead of the coins going on sale, the email said.
Michael Kramer, president of Manfra, Tordella & Brookes, a major U.S. coin wholesaler in New York, said dealers have already received significant advanced orders following Tuesday's notice.
"We have already sold 1,000 of them without even trying," he said.
The Mint stopped producing platinum bullion coins in 2008 as collectors and retail investors bought fewer coins after prices soared at the start of that year. Interest turned to gold coins as a safe-haven investment later that year at the height of the world economic crisis.
over $100K in last 30 days. Don't know what happened but this will have a negative effect of 1c off GAAP EPS
Coin certs are trending higher than last year. Will have preliminary qtr numbers in 2 weeks.
showed 4 pallets of green monster boxes (500 coins/box) sitting in the grading room. That is a huge amount of coins sitting in their warehouse waiting to be graded. I could not find the pic on their site but someone in the PCGS precious metals forum saved it and posted it. Could be yet another reason why the stock has been moving up. It's a highly visible thing to everyone who works there
In August of 2011, just before the stock went ex-dividend, there was a huge volume and price surge to $18.80 which was hit during the day. it closed over $18 that day, went ex-dividend, and then sold off slowly every day after that. I sold my stock on that surge day. There was hardly any shorts in the stock back then. If this can get above $18.80, look out
Prior to that, the last time the stock was this high was 2005 for a period of a few months.

(CNN) -- If you've ever complained that the trolls junking up online comment sections are a bunch of sadistic psychopaths, you might be onto something.
An online survey by a group of Canadian researchers suggests that Internet trolls are more likely than others to show signs of sadism, psychopathy and "Machiavellianism": a disregard for morality and tendency to manipulate or exploit others.
"It was sadism, however, that had the most robust associations with trolling of any of the personality measures," says an article by psychologists from the University of Manitoba, University of Winnipeg and University of British Columbia. "In fact, the associations between sadism and ... scores were so strong that it might be said that online trolls are prototypical everyday sadists."
Sadism is a tendency to take pleasure in other people's pain or discomfort.
well, u missed a nice run. even with continual insider selling it is going up. The insider selling window closes in 2 weeks.
CLCT is up 50% YTD so there won't be any tax loss selling from longs. However, there are over 500K shorts who have just been crushed this year. Will they be throwing in the towel and covering between now and year end?
So I just re-read the PR. It said the EPA certified and expanded the system use back in October. It's friggin mid-December. Why am I just hearing about this now? What happened to Reg-FD? Maybe this is why the CEO was canned.
At this rate, we should get added back to the Russell 2000/3000 indices in May. That's means about 600K shares in buys for those indices.
