Thoughts on Platinum Stocks?

Many annalists are bullish on Platinum and there is a straight play on the price with PPLT. I would like a leveraged play so looked for a miner EFT which holds global platinum miners and refiners. I looked at PLTM but the float is so thin that purchased in small lots, commissions would kill profits […]

RGDO

Is gumshoe running fo cover on Dr. KSS and RGDO. Took the day off and just lost 60% on RGDO. Probably more by monday. Is it time for DFr. Kss to KSS his *ss goodby?

ADHD

Saw the symbol and decided to check it out because I have 68 years of un-medicated experience and one year of severe symptoms that Alderol doesn’t work to help. For those who don’t know, ADHD really is a lifetime disease which most people self medicate with booze, sex, food and risktaking. Also, it appears associated […]

Average is fine. these were selected from my long term safe acount so not expecting dramatic movement, As mentioned Think my bet is close to the original RGDO is doomed. But only time will tell and I have been wrong before and missed many opportunities. [...]

Just to give you a sporting chance, I would wager that PLTM (platinum miners), STON (graveyards) and even KOL (coal miners) outperform RGDO if my over analysis is correct. Of course as to the original terms you have to be present in person to collect as do[...]

you are correct about small miners being a big risk. I have refined Myron's recommendations and refuse to buy thinly floated penny stocks. However he does quite well with his larger stocks (UUUU) and industry overviews (Uranium). You are probably right on [...]

Of course all investment decisions are personal but your note did make me review my position when I dumped all biotechs on July 7th. RGDO is up about $0.13 and my CLDN would have been down $3.50 and DRTX down about $4.50. By forcing me to remember why I [...]

Thanks Les, the article is exceptionally long and if I still held any interest in biotechs, I would read it more carefully. Even on a fast read, I saw several symbols that were mentioned in posts on Biotech. It is a good read for the scope of fraud in the [...]
