"Buy when others are selling and when out of favor". Mid $20s seems minimum objective for GDX even on just a bear market rally. Nov-Jan traditional strong months for gold & silver.
"Buy when the crowd is selling". The lunatic QE by the Bank of Japan is another reason.
Sentiment: Strong Buy
Best fiction story teller in the world--worth every penny :)
I'm on the side of tolerance captchip. Unfortunately, many people like sheepdip are still in the stone age.
Why is it "liberal" to support human rights? I'm just worried that there are so many people out there who do not support equality, and it may impact sales. I hope I am wrong, but it seems realistic to expect some impact.
I agree completely with your statement, but unfortunately bigotry is still widespread in the world, so the impact on Apple sales may not be helpful. What concerns me is what happened at J.C. Penny when they used Ellen in commercials, and a bigoted "million moms" boycotted and sales plunged. Has anything changed?
I hope you are right that it won't matter, but controversy rarely is good for sales.
I support gay rights and think its a non issue. But many idiots like the "Duck Dynasty" crowd think it is an issue. You don't think this will matter for sales?
If you think it helps sales & is not a distraction, buy.
If you think it hurts sales & is a distraction, sell.
Honestly, judging from what I see, I'm leaning sell. i hope I'm wrong.
I don't see how it helps. As far as I'm concerned, Mr. Cook can live any way he likes, and I have no problem. These things are private, but now Apple becomes a "controversy" stock and unfortunately this may hurt sales in some parts of the world. Does anyone think this will INCREASE SALES? If so, speak!
Sure looked like a key reversal day & buying climax in bonds, didn't it? Do you think there will be a low volume retest of those levels in rates? If so, that could be the final signal to get out of bonds. It seems that it would take a huge deflationary event to break those lows of the 15th, and if that happens we prob. get more QE which as you correctly say is bearish for long bonds when it is announced.
Interesting that the dollar rallied today--I guess the end of QE wasn't discounted in currencies, especially if ECB initiates QE as Fed ends it. I still think the Germans will drag their feet on allowing Draghi to start QE, but I could be wrong on this.
All opinions sought, including Merenkov whom I do respect. My own take: coal stocks might be buys for a rally, bonds I'm not sure--if the market believes that the GOP will bring financial discipline, perhaps a case can be made for bonds.
Buyers scarce acc. to Santolli.
