On Microblog: Project Prophesy- at least Jim Rickards stopped calling for the death of the dollar. But I just listened to a long winded
Let me throw in my thanks to all who came before me and exposed (or should I say de-classified) this Jim Rickards guy as the BS artist he probably is. I read the whole transcript and figured out that he was selling an options scanning service, so, being an[...]
On Alex Green's "Single Stock Retirement Plan"
I suppose that you could retire on this one stock if you: 1) buy 500,000 shares now then sell them in a few years and, 2)live in a rusty old trailer. *sigh*, just another bull&%$# teaser.[...]
On What the heck are "Alpha Contracts?" Can you really "Lock in $52,000 with just 4 clicks of the mouse?"
Whoo boy,ya gotta have some big brass ones to start monkeying around with junk bonds, or even anything BBB rated these days. As soon as the Fed ratchets up interest rates, whatever you're holding will become virtually worthless overnight. Of course, Zack S[...]
On Looking into Sjuggerud's ad: "Stocks That Nearly Every Wall Street Firm Will be Forced to Buy at 3:59pm on May 31"
As a subscriber to Sjuggerud's newsletters, he's definitely pushing KBA, and Ping An. Taking their advice, I have shares of KBA and Tencent, and you probably should as well. Naspers should also do well over time. But all of these are long positions, so I w[...]
On What's "The Netflix of Medicine" Being Teased by Technology & Opportunity?
Being an optometrist, I know a lot of people will never give up the face-to-face encounter. In the eye care sphere, online refraction technology is coming. And there are a lot of stupid optometrists who think it will never be allowed to happen, but it will[...]
On Ask a Stupid Question...
I love the part of the world where you live. But, did you freeze your nads this winter? And, yeah, I'd like to know if Harsimran Singh is mostly bogus. I have his service, have done some of his wacky option trades, profited on some, others not so much.[...]
On Looking Out for Your Own Wellbeing
I'm an optometrist, sort of the PCP of eye care. In my practice, I take care of everything my patients need except surgery (due to statute, not knowledge). Some states, like Massachusetts, are so over-lobbied by specialist MDs that the optometrists there c[...]
On What are "Trump Bonus Checks?"
Y'know, hucksters like Mike Burnick give the investment industry a (deservedly?) bad name. Even though I get tons of teaser emails from Stansberry and Dent research, they are less hyperbole and more substance than this kind of crap. Speaking of which, any[...]
On "If I had to pick one stock.... World’s No. 1 Stock When Gold Booms" teased by Dan Ferris
I think it is their company policy, as it is with Dent research and others. They all have this "72 hour rule" whereby they must wait 72 hours after making a recommendation before they can buy whatever they are recommending. That said, it's possible that th[...]
On "If I had to pick one stock.... World’s No. 1 Stock When Gold Booms" teased by Dan Ferris
Being a subscriber to the Stansberry products, I can say 100% that it is indeed Sprott. I bought some shares a month or so ago, and they are up 13 1/2%. I'll probably buy some more, but no way am I putting my whole nut in one stock. Even Porter Stansberry [...]
On Casey: "March 31, 2018: New Legal Ruling Will Send Gold Higher Than Bitcoin"
Gee, it seems to me that if the Indian government succeeds in getting the populace to start buying and selling each others' gold jewelry, flooding the market with new gold, that is, increasing the supply but not necessarily the demand, will cause the price[...]
On Microblog: nick hodge outsider club
It would seem that Midal Gold (OTC: MDRPF) is a likely suspect. Ever since this guy starting teasing and hawking it this "50-cent" stock is now around 72 cents. Its 200 DMA is around 69.5 cents. O would consider throwing a couple hundred bucks at it if it [...]
