This catches me off gaurd like that hook you never see coming. But Hecla announces today that it will be aqcuiring Aurizon Mines for CAD$796 million. Sinch once wrote, maybe it was last year, that Hecla had not aqcuired any juniors, unlike Yamana, and a s a result had not progressed in teh recent years as it shoudl have to stay competitive with the likes of AUY. Well, its better late than never. [more]
I was thinking about getting shares of FAZ sometime this year as I suspect our economy may take a southward dip. I was told by a Fool to not buy such 3x ETF's unless I intended tohold them for a few days otherwise I'll lose mymoney. It got me thinking, "What the heck are these investment vehicles?". So, I was hoping I coudl some of you to chime in and help me understand these 3x ETF's. I figure anything I get here can compliment what I find on the i-net. [more]
I'm in a quandry andhoep you Fools can help me out. I'm stuck between reducing my $/share value in either GPL or BRD, but not both at this time. Reading their Q3 reports, however, does not help me decide. I didn't listen in on their phone conference either :(. Any input out there between who they think is better?
