May 26, 2010 – Comments (52) | RELATED TICKERS: CEF

Some of you might be wondering why PHYS is down more than 7% intraday today on an up-day for gold, and the reason is that it's a gift from gold gods. :P  [more]



Helping You Find Relative Strength Dry Bulk

May 26, 2010 – Comments (12) | RELATED TICKERS: DSX , DRYS , NM

For as long as I've been writing about dry bulk stocks here at The Motley Fool, I have consistently heralded Diana Shipping (DSX) as the best in her class, and added Navios Maritime (NM) and Genco (GNK) as bastions of relative strength within a severely impaired industry. I have consistently expressed concern for both Eagle Bulk Shipping (EGLE) and Excel Maritime Carriers (EXM) on the basis of their oversized debt burdens and more aggressively counter-cyclical growth initiatives, and I have never ceased in trying to warn investors away from DryShips (DRYS) as a speculative play unfit for the risk-averse portfolio.  [more]

Not that gold and silver need new industrial applications to emerge in order to reach the $2,000 / $50 price targets I have forecast, but it certainly doesn't hurt.  [more]

The Near-Term Outlook for Gold and Silver

May 18, 2010 – Comments (23) | RELATED TICKERS: AZK.DL2 , GDXJ , SIL

When investor confidence in the state of sovereign debt throughout old guard economies remains this tenuous and volatile, and for as long as the JP Morgan's of the world are able to keep their ponzified hold on the bullion market limping along on whistleblown crutches, forecasting the near-term movements in gold and silver will remain extremely difficult to do with any degree of certainty. Sometimes, the technical picture is so clear as to overcome these challenges and permit a fairly reliable call in one direction or the other, but even then the success of those forecasts relies upon the absence of trajectory-altering events that are truly impossible to telegraph. In short, forecasting near-term movements remains a crap shoot, and not one that I consider worthy of betting any significant amount of real capital on. For that reason, I continue to remain long and strong with more than 80% of my precious metals allocation at any given time, and engage in opportunistic profit-taking and (hopefully) subsequent repurchasing at slightly reduced costs. Any and all investors who do not feel as though they have their finger on the pulse of the precious metals market are encouraged to solely partake in the buy-and-hold strategy, but since not all investors are yet fully invested to their desired allocations, I continue to provide my outlook at key junctures alongside qualifying statements like these regarding the inherent uncertainty therein. My aim in doing this continues to be trying to help Fools seeking additional exposure to find their best entry points.  [more]

Now Do You Understand Gold?

May 11, 2010 – Comments (33) | RELATED TICKERS: GOLD , CEF , AUY
