This is a late continuation of the predecessor thread titled: “Gold, Silver, and Hard Assets…FALL 2017”…from which, I quote: “Everyone makes mistakes and I make more than my share.”  Well, I nailed that one. In 2018, overall my picks were not successful.  Many of the mining speculations were duds. Plus the commodity price landscape was […]

Thoughts About Hurricane Matthew The whole experience of the storm is a perfect analogy with what we are faced with in our financial lives. The idea of an economic storm approaching is a common metaphor or simile that is used by many writers and observers. But is strikes me as something more than a metaphor. […]

WHY HELICOPTER MONEY IS BETTER THAN FED EASING The term “helicopter money” has been used to suggest direct cash subsidies to the population as a possible method of monetary stimulus. It was s sardonically suggested as an alternative to Quantitative Easing (“QE”), as it is currently practiced through bank and institutional monetary mechanisms. QE is […]

The US government and the hedge funds really missed it in the last financial crisis. In 2008 Iceland went bankrupt because they had external debt of $50 billion dollars. Hey, the US Treasury should have just fired up the printing presses for a few hours and bought the whole darned country. When the next crisis […]

Recently there has appeared economic policy discussions about NEGATIVE INTEREST RATES. This is the first time in my life that I have ever heard of this concept, and I know of no historical precedent for it. It seems to be a theoretical construct of policymakers who are desperate to ”stimulate the economy” and are following […]

Was watching this morning very closely…anyone notice the flat-top Dow pattern from about 9:45 to 12:15? Never saw anything like it, on a five minute chart there would be fallbacks that would top out precisely at 18191.10, lasted about three hours…anyone got an idea how or why this could happen ??

$CLLS Talk about excitement ! One of our biotech wunderkind has taken the lead in the race to improve the cold storage performance of sliced potatoes ! Cellectis is not only trying to fix human genes, they now have the genes of innocent plants in their crosshairs. First potatoes. Then they’ll go after soybeans, corn, […]

Hi Eveyone, I saw a chart on aluminum price and supply, and it looks like reduced stockpiles have not yet affected aluminum prices. Does anyone have a POV on this, and what might be good plays on aluminum, assuming one believes prices are going to go up soon ?

BIOTECH IN A Dr. KSS-LESS WORLD Welcome! The purpose of this thread will be to discuss, identify and follow small or mid-cap biotechs that have credible scientific platforms , big potential target markets, favorable qualified second party medical opinion, and significant stock appreciation potential in a one-to-three year time horizon; and to create and track […]

CALLING FOR BORON BIGFOOT $ANAC Gosh I really need this…anyone else got toe fungus ? ANACOR was approved last fall for selling us a topical treatment for toe fungus based on boron chemistry. Don’t laugh, they said 35 million Americans suffer from toenail fungus. And it is often on more than one toe. Anacor specializes […]

OK Gummies. I give you an in-house teaser in a new sector. Look, we gotta diversify from biotech, gold bullion, and 770 insurance plans. So here we go. With oil prices down, airlines should benefit, right ? Well, for the foreseeable future, there is ONE airline that is going to have a huge competitive advantage […]

Hi Gummies, Before joining Stock Gumshoe, I read a teaser on a company that can convert natural gas to gasoline and other products. I did not subscribe to the teaser service, But did a little my own sleuthing, and I would like to share what I found and get some informed feedback from anyone who […]

Does anyone have opinion or insight into Cellectis and its potential ? Have found very little opinion or analysis available on this company, apart from their website and a few terse press announcements (Pfizer and Servier agreements, gene splicing patents, decision to offer securities in the US) and dense technical explanations of their approach to […]

I think so. The sticking point, in my estimation, is the initial exchange rates between dollar, Chinese yuan, and gold. This is at least a number negotiation. the Chinese love gold (so do the Russians and Saudis and Indians and a lot of other people), [...]

The SDR is a soft prelude to loss of sovereignty. If you don't control your currency, the guy who does owns you. The Europeans were hoodwinked, going to the euro was the first step in losing control of your country. The EEC is the Empire of the Rothshchild[...]

I think so. I'm not a lawyer, but I believe Trump already has the legal basis on several points. It is even in the Constitution, which states that the CONGRESS shall control the currency; and Article I Section 10 says that "...no State shall make an[...]

A gold-backed reset would AVOID "official" US bankruptcy. What it would do would be to devalue the dollar. The debts could be met, but the value of the dollar will decline. This is not an unusual occurrence in the grand scheme of things, such deva[...]

This type of company, I think it is best to buy and forget about it. They are almost impossible to follow on a week to week basis...there is usually no news and it is a long-term long shot. It's not like a miner who may hit a rich deposit at any moment...y[...]
