in this bubble market a catastrophic drop in sales or earnings makes the stock drop less than 2%
look at caterpillar today for example 12% DROP in sales and it;s down pennies..
so if you are expecting this to drop you are going to be disapointed it is far more likely to soar and
blow you out of the water if anything is better than expected...
Think what this means to filter sales...

New Fed “Monetary Dove” Puts Job Growth First
However different their roots, Yellen and Fischer have similar outlooks on the role of the central bank.

Yellen has been a vocal supporter of the fed’s activist role in supporting the economy through monetary stimulus, and is largely seen as a monetary “dove” – that is, she appears to consider unemployment a greater concern than inflation.
They will never truly stop the taper already you see first time claims spiking philly fed and home sales less than expected they said they are going to maintain this until well below 6.5% unemployment rate this will never happen you have to read between the lines...
This is why Helca is barely budging with a 43 dollar drop in gold prices as the smart money is buying it..
You will see I am right and you will remember I told you this.
As Warren Buffet Said:
If something you want goes down in price be **happy** because you can buy **more** with a given amount of money. This is true of Hecla the lower it goes the more I will buy because unlike a tech stock or some other company GOLD and SILVER are not going to ever go out of favor and I will have more shares when it does rise.
You posted about the 2.65 price a few months ago and you were right on target.
I am curious also to see if it breaches. A big selloff could temporarily depress the price but how much more is hard to figure. Upside is so big imo that you need to take some position or you may regret a big pop. Averaging in would probably be good just in case. I got most of my shares at the 2.74 to 2.80 level so I am pretty comfortable. I may buy more after Jan 1 for next years IRA

Faber says: "My sense is that at the present time, the US market is relatively expensive compared to foreign markets, especially to European markets and to emerging markets. On a cyclically-adjusted P/E [price-to-earnings] basis, it is actually going to return very little over the next seven to 10 years.

2. Best shorts for 2014: Facebook, Tesla, Twitter, Netflix, and Veeva Systems
Faber says: "If you look at the entire market, some stocks are not terribly expensive and some stocks are very expensive. It's like in year 2000, not every stock was overpriced. At that time, the NASDAQ was grossly overvalued but, say, resource shares and so-called 'old economy' companies were relatively inexpensive or absolutely cheap. In the present instance, I think that stocks like Facebook, Tesla, Twitter, Netflix, [and] Veeva Systems are grossly overvalued and that the basket of shorts in these stocks will return you at least 30% next year."
3. Best longs for 2014: Gold, gold shares, and Vietnamese stocks
Faber says: "Given all the money printing that is going on globally – and not just in the US – and given that the total credit as a percent of the advanced economies is now 30% higher than in 2007 before the crisis hit, I think that gold is a good insurance."

"I'd rather buy something that is reasonably priced. And, I think gold shares are very inexpensive. So a basket of gold shares I think next year could easily appreciate 30%."
"I think the Vietnamese stock market, which this year was up 22% [and] which is not bad for an emerging market, will continue to go up."
I would use this opportunity to load up on the shares today.
The fed has temporarily distorted the markets for Gold and Silver but they won;t be able to do it much longer and the rising claims proves the money printing will never stop.
Look for gold to rise from here on in as well as silver.
Lets see if I am right again..
downside for hl is nil that is risk is extremely LOW it will go down any more
but UPSIDE is **HUGE** currently 2.76 lets see if I am right again !
"But in a move likely meant to fores tall any sharp market reacti on that could undercut the recov ery, the cent ral bank also said it "likely will be appropriate" to keep rates near zero "well past the time" that the jobles s rate falls below 6.5 p ercent."
Here is the que stion for you that tells it all:
Do you ever see unemploy ment below 6.5% ?
If not then the money prin ting will never end..
It's that simple folks.
Buy the pullbac k in gold and silver now silver at barely 20 oz gold at 1230 and hecla at this price level a real ba rgain when money printing is goi ng to go on fore ver isn't it ?
Seasonedspec are you seasoned with Garlic ?
and by definition this printing must dilute all dollars you or anyone else holds
gold and silver will always end up maintaining their store of value
if they bought android or windows phone thumbs up...
Be honest !
