Yours Truly on NPR



October 23, 2008 – Comments (13)

Hi Fools,

I have a secret for you... I like gold as an investment here.  :)  What's that? You already knew that about me... well some people are still finding this out about me.. like people who listen to NPR in Minnesota.  :)

Here's the article on the Minnesota NPR website,and below I will attempt to embed the audio file... if the embed doesn't work, please simply go to the link and click play on the audio file near the top of the page.

Too bad she didn't use more material from our extended interview.  :)

Nice Cameo,

Tell your boss's at the fool you want some ad revenue for that spot.

Just wondering, Why does she sound like a voicemail system? Enunciation is one thing, but sounding like a speak and spell is another.

I'll definitely listen... I've noted about 6-7 interviews on NPR from people I've had discussions or observed only on the internet.

I switch between CD's and listening to NPR all the time when driving. I find nothing else on the radio to interest me aside a few talk shows... Between my CD's and NPR I freak out different people in different areas when they see the 20-something year old guy behind the wheel...

Making waves are we Chris ? :) :) LOL ( Of the acoustic variety at least)

Incidentally, I think a lot of people are discounting that the only voracious consumer of Gold in the world ( the populace of India) have a thing called the Festival season ( Festival of lights) where it is customary to buy gold for the new year - and its the peak consumption months for Gold.

At around $700  - people would be getting prices from end-2005/early 2006 - it would be interesting to see.

My personal feeling you may very well see a near term rally in gold. I am seriously thinking of DGP and AEM ( In addition to my CEF,GLD and AUY,HL) positions.

Let me know your thoughts.

I bought some NXG recently. At 64 cents, it is difficult to resist.

Nice.  I'm worried about gold in the short term, silver as well.  The huge deleveraging means all assett classes are being sold.  I bought DBP right before the big selloff yesterday.  Was afraid to buy more on the gap down, and missed a great opportunity.  why why why?

Congrats Sinchi!

your voice was not what I imagine you'd sound like. Kinda funny you never can tell that sort a thing off the interwebs.

Makes you wonder about internet dating sites and whether they truly work.

There's a funny story there, actually. First of all, I had been writing all day... talking to no one... so my vocal chords were far from warmed up... I sounded like I had just woken up.

Secondly, the one thing the interviewer asked for was a quiet setting for the call... no sooner did we start the interview than my teapot starting howling that annoying siren. I sorinted to the stove to shut it off, and for the next minute or so was breathing heavily... 

I don't think that recording sounds the way I normally sound.  :)

Motleyanimal... be careful with the little guys here... I think AEM is right when they tell Bloomberg there will be a surprising string of outright failures of some of the juniors. Unless the sector reverses soon, several juniors will fail. 

Fools.... please.. stay away from DGP and DBP here. I have a very small position in DGP, but am planning to sell the moment it gets back to my cost basis. Those instruments are derivatives based, and they WILL fail. 

At $700, we're sitting right at the industry average all-in cost of production. If prices remain here or go lower, projects will start getting shut down left and right... bankruptcies will file in, and subsequently the price will be bolstered. Gold CANNOT stay at these levels... people are paying $900 or more for 1-ounce coins and sizable premiums for bigger bars... at some point investors on the CRIMEX will take delivery of bullion and take advantage of arbitrage.

How does it feel to have your voice in there with Cramer's - a chill up your spine or some type of gaging reflex? And now it's on the web forever. Maybe a great grandkid of yours will find it someday - cool.

Hey Sinch! That was great! Yeah, I agree with Tasty. As weird as it is, that is not how I would have pictured your voice. I know that is just a dumb statement, becuase it begs "well, what would you have expected?". And I have no answer .. :)

Yeah, good call on DGP. I have a little of both DGP and SLV. And I don't like the paper gold/silver aspects. I am trying to play some of the volatility, but it is really not worth it. I will eventually turn them into some more CEF holdings. And probably like you, that is and will always be my biggest holding. :)
