Silver Wheaton is up over 100% in the last 12 days

December 17, 2008 – Comments (4) | RELATED TICKERS: SLW

So Silver Wheaton is one of those stocks I bought recently after reading blogs and pitches from fellow CAPs players and thanks for that.  I didn't get in at the bottom but I'm up over 50% in less than a week.  The stock seems to have a lot of momentum from out of nowhwere.  If you put any faith in RSI measres though SLW now seems pretty overbought with a rating of 88+.  I guess my questions for those who are much more in tune to the wide world of mining is do they expect the upward drive to continue?  It's easy to get greedy and hope that your stock that you bought for less than $5 will turn into a multi-bagger it'd also be a shame to piss away the quick gains I've already aquired in very little time.  The current P/E looks to be around 17.75 which to me seems a little on the high side.  It doesn't pay a dividend that I can tell so growth is all it's got.  I was wondering what people's realistic expectations for this stock are over the next year.    [more]



France hates Constellation Energy arbitrage plays

December 03, 2008 – Comments (2) | RELATED TICKERS: CEG.DL2

So Warren Buffet was going to indeirectly buy 100% of Constellation Energy Group for $26.50 cash.  I bought some CEG shares at $22.75 to take advantage of this.  I figure Warren Buffet is a safe investment in a sea of uncertainty and I'm not going to scoff at an easy 16.5ish% gain + another 2-4% in dividends for a few months of holding a stock.    [more]
