If U are really 69 you should be collecting social security....unreal "gains" with absolutely no risk! Right?!
It's only a matter of time.
To see how reactionary, short-sighted and (to be blunt) dumb the majority of society has become is actually quite disturbing. If this blows over in less than a couple of weeks--which I think there is a good chance it will--my point will be proven. That being said, the biggest problem is how to invest in a market full of "fund managers" and "joe six pack" "investors" like this. One day coal is bad, then it's good. One day oil sucks and then natural is the future...but then they're both good. Solar is not feasible, but then neither is wind energy..but wait...yes they are--they have to be. Silver is where to be..nope, maybe not...because there was an earthquake--maybe gold--nope, that's bad too. So basically it looks like the market has become (even more of) casino. If you can predict the next row of cherries (natural disaster) you have a slight chance of winning..but then again...maybe not!! Starting to like my odds at the Blackjack table better......
Yikes--by the looks of this even "owning" shares of GPL stock won't mean much of anything---unless they plan to pay future dividends in silver!!
Agreed...somewhat...but that's like saying New Orleans was caught off-guard by a severe hurricane---or communities along the MS river were surprised by flooding. Kind of silly if you ask me. People nowadays just seem to think that bad things just don't happen anymore--especially to THEMSELVES!! Weird.
I just have to say....if the Japan thing has ANY effect on Uranium prices I have lost all faith in humanity. It seems that all people care about/can focus on anymore is immediate gratification. Hey, I have a great idea...let's build a nuclear power plant on a fault line!!!! Yeah...OK...that sounds great!! All sarcasm aside, it's a serious situation that needs to be resolved....however, why ohhh why...would you not take earthquake precautions when you're in JAPAN?????????? I/we can only hope that this does not put a damper on the single..without a doubt..BEST...way to generate power to an ailing US economy!
We all have problems--at least he has the guts to try and do something about it. Tax cuts for businesses bring and keep business to your state. Businesses = jobs = money = consumer spending and tax revenue = an improved economy in your state. But then again, maybe he shouldn't worry...because, after all, things really are getting better...just look at the S&P today and then watch it tomorrow....especially if the day of r@ge comes to fruition. But that's OK, if oil goes up to $200, we can just print more dollars! Right..hello?? Is this thing on??? Go Panter!!
I'm expecting a run up into earnings and then...POP! Shale oils are doing great (right now) but you're right, timing is everything....blink and you'll miss it--and be left with dust.
Good thoughts--I think at this point I'd be "chasing" MDW and could get lucky--or burned! Minco it will be--hopefully on a pullback....
I currently own some shares of GST (T B Pickens owns quite a bit as well, which is why I bought it!)....but am not happy with how flat it has been with all of the action in oil lately. I know it is more of a natty gas play but still...it seems like is should be rising faster than it has. I'll hold out for another week (maybe) but think that shale oil may be a better bet for the near and long-term future--but worry that SSN has run up too far too quickly. What do you all think? Thanks in advance.
Which is the better "buy" right now? I'm a little worried that MDW has gone up too fast and I'll miss a good entry point...however, MGH may take a little longer but still seems to have great potential. What do you all think???
I'm admittedly VERY green to the Precious metals game but decided that begging for a 1% rate on a CD for my "slush" funds was ridiculous so I decided to take the the plunge with a few K. I sold GPL today for a tidy (well, 3 figure at least) little profit and am looking for something a little more "stable" with more or less guaranteed growth--assuming gold keeps rising...which, I'm thinking it will. In your opinions, does CGR meet these requirements?? Also looking at UXG, EXK, and SLW (probably too safe)....
