Sentiment: Strong Sell
If global peace and financial security conditions deteriorate.... Then a 2 to 3 bagger by 2015. A 2X by 2017 is a good conservative long term view. Downside risk is low compared to upside. Silver won't disappear like bitcoins, bankrupt companies etc... FDIC fails to prop up failed banks.....etc
Good detailed article, The massive global monetary stimulus which resulted in 10's of trillions of global debt will be the rising tide for precious metals. Silver Wheaton: Future Expectations Are About To Reverse
"Conclusion 2014 seems to be a much better year for gold, silver and Silver Wheaton so far. With positive ETF flow data year-to-date, which has been mostly responsible for falling demand for gold in 2013, the situation might be stabilizing and reversing, with the prices of gold and silver finally trading above their 200 day moving average lines. This bodes well for Silver Wheaton, which will benefit from recovering gold and silver prices in the future. ***As the massive global monetary stimulus eventually translates into higher precious metal prices, Silver Wheaton's share price might easily double from the current price by 2017. Based on the last two year's P/E range, Silver Wheaton may have 20% short-term upside left.***"
IMHO being short here is extreme danger. The banks & wealth fund would not line up with a fraud. Major upside with the "go shop" provision. Downside limited.
Buffett Might Like This 20% Merger Arbitrage Play
"On March 27, 2012, the company announced that it had received a nonbinding "going private" proposal at $13.50 per share from Zhongpin Chairman and CEO Xianfu Zhu. The company formed a Special Committee to evaluate the bid, and remained largely remained silent until November 26, 2012, when Zhongpin announced that it had entered into a definitive merger agreement with Zhu and a group of insiders that own 26% of the outstanding stock. According to the November announcement, the deal has been approved by the board, the buyout group has arranged financing ($85 million equity investment by China Wealth Growth Fund I, L.P. and a $320 million loan from China Development Bank Corp.), and the deal is slated to close in Q1'13."
The deal had a "go shop" provision that was originally set to expire on January 25, but was just extended by the Special Committee to February 8.
Sentiment: Strong Buy
Value Line 10/26/2012 report indicated a 3rd qtr. est = .52 on 445m revenue. "HOGS has focused on selling more of its higher-margined chilled pork and prepared pork products. We look for these drivers to persist in the coming quarters. Thus, we believe the company is still on track to record share net of about $1.80 this year." 2012 Book value is estimated @ $15.25... So will we here about the $13.50 CEO buyout???? Been about 6 months.... or is the deal DOA?

EDU is 2.43% of the fund.(As of 7/18/2012)
PGJ is down 4% since the revelation.
See> Why PGJ Fell 4% Tues, As China ETFs Rose http://finance.yahoo.com/news/why-pgj-fell-3-tues-162225566.html
"PGJ showed up in the No. 4 spot on IndexUniverse’s worst-perfomers list Tuesday because New Oriental Education (EDU), which has a ** 3.72 percent weight in PGJ, revealed Tuesday that the Securities and Exchange Commission was investigating its financial statements, according to a report published by Bloomberg News."
So which is it, 3.72% of the fund or 2.43% of the fund?
The 1.3% error could signal a buying discount IMHO...
Attorneys retained are serious "heavy hitters"
Zhongpin is not "playing around" IMHO
Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld LLP
"international law firm headquartered in Washington, D.C"
"In 2010, the firm was ranked as one of the nation's top 20 corporate law firms"
"Overall, the firm has more than 800 attorneys in about a dozen offices, mainly in the US but also in the Asia/Pacific region and Europe."

yes, good news!
Hogs management and BOD have followed through on all their disclosures.
They have foiled the shorts many times. $13.50 a share is the ceiling unless some deep pockets bid higher.... either way, good news for today...
very informative, once translated.
Once the insider trading issue is settled, buying 25% growth for a P/E of 6 creates a real value investment. The CEO's offer to go private @ $13.50 = a P/E of 8.... He knows it's a steal! The source of funds will know it's a bargain as well. IMHO
"Question: Can you give a vision. For example, in 2015, our total slaughter capacity, supporting farming and downstream production can reach how much?
Wang Feng: We can continue to maintain annual growth of about 25% in the next 3-5 years."
I agree. The majority of shareholders will decide to accept/reject the $13.50 offer.
Also it would possibly be easier for another US corp to submit a competitive offer. Hogs is not a ADR as many may think...
