Wild Ride in Auction Rate Securities Bond Market - AP

March 31, 2008 – Comments (2)

As the next step in this unfortunate process, we can expect an uptick in the numbers of municipalities claiming outright insolvency, and requiring emergency assistance from... guess where... the federal government.  Most state balance sheets are similarly strained, and certainly won't be able to bail out entire municipalities.   [more]

OMG!! Fed to Seek Broader Oversight Powers!! :(

March 29, 2008 – Comments (6) | RELATED TICKERS: JPM , BSC.DL , MER.DL2

Lest we forget... the Fed is not a government agency, but a consortium of private banks!!!  So now a state-sponsored banking cartel will be regulating the very markets that have made them so very wealthy all these years!  This is starting to look more and more similar to the events of the Great Depression.  [more]

Gold going to $2,000

March 25, 2008 – Comments (5) | RELATED TICKERS: GLD , IAU , CEF

The article pasted below is from SeekingAlpha.com, written by James West.  While I don't agree that the $2,000 mark is the very next step, as that would seem to suggest that it will get there without any further corrections or sideways trading, I wholeheartedly agree with the price target as a conservative long-term target for gold sometime in the next 2-4 years.  Here is a link to an article I published on the topic, so you can know my view as well.  [more]

The Fortis Hedging and Financial Gold Report

March 07, 2008 – Comments (4) | RELATED TICKERS: ABX , IAG

Before you buy a gold miner, check this report to see its hedge position... it's a very important factor in projecting cash flows going forward.  In general, companies have been scrambing to buy their way out of hedge positions, but some have done better than others.  Barrick Gold, for example, has a large hedge position at extremely unfavorable prices compared to most competitors.  As I pointed out in a January post, Barrick execs sold massive quantities of company stock recently, and this left me wondering why.  I now suspect it could have something to do with these unfavorable hedge positions.  [more]

What's driving inflation higher? See continuation of M3

March 07, 2008 – Comments (2)

M3 is the broadest measure available of the total number of dollars out there, but the U.S. government ceased publishing the statistic in 2006.  If the extrapolated data on this chart are correct, then it's clear why they stopped publishing M3.  Again, I am not endorsing the accuracy of this data, and I have not looked closely at how Mr. Williams arrives at his data... I just came across the site and found it interesting.  [more]
