Bubbles Bubbles Everywhere: The Next Asset Bubbles Ready To Pop

June 29, 2009 – Comments (17)


Most People think they have seen enough asset bubbles to last them a lifetime. Even Mark Haynes The CNBC anchor has this mentality and he has been covering the financial markets for ages. Not that I think CNBC is great to begin with, in fact quite the opposite, nor do I think anything of Haynes. That being said even the so called "professionals" were and will be in for a rude awakening. He had Peter Schiff on as a guest in 2006 and looked at Peter as if he had four eyes for saying "Their was a housing bubble" (which turned out to be oh so true).
          What made Haynes reaction interesting was when he went on to say to peter "you expect me to believe there is another bubble, these things come around once in a lifetime". Well who looks stupid now? Way to go Peter, give it to the man.  [more]

In my opinion there are currently 4 kings of the biotech world. These include Genetech (which still retains their name despite roche buying the remaining shares), Amgen, Celgene & Gilead. But there is one, the only which I have an interest in, other than Amgen (for Desonaub for colon cancer), that warrants some big time attention. Carl Ican ever began buying shares until he realized there were no changes to made.  [more]

June 17, 2009 – Comments (3) | RELATED TICKERS: AEM , AUY , EGO


Unfortunately for mining giants like Barrick, Newmont, Anglo, Goldfields and a few others, they hit peak prodcution when gold prices were in the doldrums. The must layout relatively large capital to replace old mines via searching for new mines or the more practical method of aquiring those already in production. Don't get me wrong, I think there is money to made here, but I like the next generation of miners a whole lot more.  [more]

Will The Real PEG Ratio Please Stand Up

June 11, 2009 – Comments (2)


Something got lost in translation when investors adopted his PEG ratio. You average investor defines this ratio as the next 3-5 years growth in earninigs divided by the TTM P/E ratio.It is considered ideal if this is <1, the lower the better. It's not that I don't think this could be useful assuming you possess superior forecasting abilities, but more often than not, I see everyday investors (that which knows little to nothing regarding equity valuation) take this ratio to heart and put a incorporate this into their decision making.   [more]

Current Reserve Ratio For Precious Metal Miners

June 11, 2009 – Comments (0) | RELATED TICKERS: AUY , JAGGD , AEM


A reserve ration is the enterprise value ((current market price * shares out) +debt - cash)/ The current net asset value (Sale price- cost of mining) * Proven Reserves). This is one of many metrics to guage valuations, relatively speaking of course. This is trick to use with emerging juniors as they expand proven reserves by triple digits year after year until the reach the mid-tier stage. In short, the lower the valuation , the more attractive it is (all else equal). Here are a list of the current ratios. There are also many variations of this, some better some worse, so please don' t take this as gospel.  [more]

Current Market Conditions..

June 10, 2009 – Comments (0) | RELATED TICKERS: SLV , GLD , UDN

Althouth we are starting to hear cries this recession may be dissapating, nothing could be further from the truth. Industrial output is declining at an accelerating pace. GDP was hogwash due to the fact gov't spending is included in GDP (all of which was printed of course). The trade deficit narrowed once again indicating a decreased of imports. Meanwhile Unemployment is hovering around 20% if measured as it was in 1980.   [more]

Tarp Funds Paid Back: Just a drop in the bucket

June 09, 2009 – Comments (2)


The 700 billion in TARP relief, which the majority has now been paid back, is so miniscule, it is hardly worth mentioninig. I personally though they would have been paid back relatively quickly, which was obviously not the case. The federal reserve injected over 800 billion into the banking system (which i believed and still do it was solely to cover future loans losses).  [more]

The Case For Hyperinflation: Echoes From The Weimar Republic, Zimbabwe & Latin America

20th century hyperinflations i.e Germany, Various Latin American and the most recent example in Zimbabwe, all shared one important characteristic: Debt To GDP averaged 52%. In 2010 The Ratio will be 45%! We are bankrupt people!.... We have managed to hang on due the irrational confidence in our paper money, but that is barely hanging on by a thread. Even in GDP rebounds immediately to mid single digits, it is impossible to make a dent in the national debt.   [more]

I expect the majority who read what I'm about to write will call me crazy, but the few who understand the true nature of the coming currency crisis might find this interesting. Okay for the layman I will just outline the broad austrian theory for the general framework of a free banking sysytem.   [more]
