    This certainly sounds plausible especially since the market hasn't show any signs that it will pull back significantly yet. The supply & transportation sector is a good indicator of this and it has only gotten busier.

    This is not a surprise at all. MSFT has massively advertised every major product release as any company should be doing. How much of this advertising translate to sales is a more interesting subject to discuss.

    As I feel this is still an outstanding issue of GLD, I will repost this here. Feel free to verify this for yourselves:

    Did anyone try calling the GLD hotline at 866-320-4053 and asking for any numerical details on GLD's insurance? I reached a representative that told me to look at the prospectus but I am sure the prospectus doesn't give any numbers or percentages to how much of GLD's physical gold is insured. The prospectus only vaguely mentions HSBC holding some kind of insurance policy for GLD. This representative proceeded to feign ignorance when informed of this and said they were just the "marketing agent" for GLD. What kind of marketing agent doesn't know such basic information about a product they are marketing? It seems like they are deliberately hiding information from investors.

    I remember there was a well documented visit by CNBC's Bob Pisani to GLD's gold vault. This visit was organized by GLD's managing groups to prove the existence of GLD's gold but the gold bar held up by Mr. Pisani had the serial number ZJ6752 which did not appear on the most recent bar list at that time. It was later discovered that this "GLD" bar was actually owned by ETF Securities. I've always suspected GLD of gold hypothecation but saw no real evidence until that visit. The lack of insurance is incredibly convenient for bullion lending. Of course bullion lending is something these representatives outright deny. Are they lying through their teeth?

    GS seems to be doing better holding onto its gains these days. If this continues, we'll be seeing even better multiples fairly quickly.

    For dead money, MSFT makes and holds on to its gains pretty well. Seems like MSFT isn't dead just yet but I do agree that MSFT is losing whatever market share it had in mobile. I recall reading an article about one of their executives lamenting how late they entered the mobile industry and how much this has hurt their chances of success.
