Motif Investing

Has anyone tried this? A search on Gumshoe turned up nothing, but I saw articles on Motley Fool’s site as far back as 2012, pushing this. It enables you to choose your own stocks to create what is like a self-tailored ETF – you can include up to 30 stocks (and ETFs), for a single […]

On Microblog: GOLD BULL INVESTMENTS FOR THE NEXT LEG UP...June 2016
For peace of mind, look at putting a good chunk into SGDM (major miners) and SGDJ (juniors), ETFs designed by the Sprott gang including Rick Rule - they have a stellar record and are highly respected by Myron and most of the gummies who invest in PMs. S[...]

Ben, HN is the one who started the conversation on Turkey, and I think whoever starts and helms a thread should be the cop/shepherd who decides how much veering off topic is enough or too much. That said, your shepherding and helpfulness across all the art[...]

Very good, thanks for posting. We should keep in mind too that the baked-in assumption when describing "peak" minerals is that advancing technology won't keep up with declining accessibility. Any major breakthrough that drastically reduces energy costs is [...]

Frank, as long as HN himself occasionally wants to comment on world events I think it's fine for us to follow his lead, especially in a week like this last one. Global instability is directly related to PM values anyway. The problem with the "politics and [...]

The UN is pathetic. NATO is the closest thing the world has to the long term solution - a formally established, permanent coalition of free nations intent upon continuous expansion by invitation only. Member countries would be required to uphold a true uni[...]

HN, should you ever want to start a discussion about your other (and favored) form of tangible wealth, real estate, I'd be subscribed to it in an instant. I was involved in property management for a few years long ago, and formed the opinion that it's done[...]

Using your stock mkt profits at least partially to keep accumulating physical PMs? Great, but be careful. The quote below is from a great column today by Sir Charles Vollum, the fellow who operates pricedingold.com - the column is also an excellent overvie[...]

I recall hearing that pension funds are still required to hold massive quantities of gov't bonds, since the funds were designed to be as "safe" as possible. They'd best think about adjusting that conventional wisdom, because right now the fund managers are[...]

For those who don't already follow Sprott's Thoughts - today's is very good. Investment banks are often cold and reckless but not stupid - most know that PMs = great security/insurance for themselves, not that they're likely to promote that fact to investo[...]

Thanks Frank for identifying a fundamental we must keep in mind whenever attempting to analyze PM mining stocks, or as in my case, just trying to evaluate the analysis of others. Your point has clarified a few things for me.[...]

On Friday File: Brexit Thoughts and a few nibbles
A few years back some University professor seriously proposed dividing the U.S. into two countries, one progressive and one conservative. So what you post as humor/sarcasm is one of the "great" ideas of our progressive intelligentsia - no wonder the curren[...]
On Friday File: Brexit Thoughts and a few nibbles
I decided both Donald and Hillary are idiotic, just on different issues. Thanks primary voters who have given us what may be the worst choice in U.S. history. I expect this election to create loads of uncertainty and unrest and have far more effect on our[...]
On A New Look for Stock Gumshoe
Very kewl site upgrade! Having a laugh though at your line - "sorry to spring the new design on you, but this is generally a pretty quiet time of year hereabouts" - then tonight markets go NUTS over-reacting to Brexit. So unexpected, the polls were so wron[...]

Anything which weakens confidence & investment in the U.S. dollar tends to quickly result in higher PM prices, especially gold, which is why it's impossible to completely ignore politics in the matter. I agree with Vince's non-partisan analysis of the effe[...]

On Microblog: Golds next bull run? What to buy?
Hi gard, I'm guilty too in going off topic with politics and whatnot, we just have to try and control ourselves! But there's a thread created by Alan for "anything goes", most anything you want to say, someone should give you the link to it if they haven't[...]
