5 Ways To Manage Your Stocks In Gold

Gold, both in the form of a commodity and asset, has dramatically improved in value since 2008. Essentially, the value of these precious metals have doubled in a very short period of time. A handful of reasons play roles in the fast escalation of the price, such as slowly improving industrial demand. However, the key […]

Gold, oil & 44 Bars per Minute

“Girls love to spin.” — Wayne, Dance Instructor, Howard County Parks and Rec. I’m taking dance classes at the local Parks & Rec. with a stunning brunette, which is why I’m shuffling my feet around on Sunday nights at eight. The crowd is mixed; twenty-something hipster couples and old guys who have difficulty with their gig lines. The instructor is a cross between Wayne Newton and Telly Savalas: a black silk shirt, shaved head, and a nose like an organic potato. He sucks his microphone like a lollipop and spits out a steady stream of advice: “One, two, hook the toe, slide back, twirl…” Chick magnet The chicks love him, of course. And heck, I was even having a good timeďż˝— right up until Wayne Savalas swished over during the break. My H1 was in the parking lot. It’s shiny, yellow, and chews diesel like a Mongolian wrestler at a yak roast. Wayne obviously saw me pull up and feels he should enlighten me about his new Chevy Volt getting 60 miles per gallon… And why would I drive something that sucks up so much gas and destroys the environment? I told him that I was fully invested in oil explorers. And with the trouble in the Middle East launching my shares, I could drive a Semi for life… Brent Crude ETF (BNO) Yes, he said, but is this more of a trade on the Arab revolutions, or does it have more to do with the destruction of the dollar? Wayne pointed out that the dollar/euro has hit a four-month low and seems to be heading lower. Down she goes What is most concerning is that during this particular period of global uncertainty, the

How to Buy Yukon Gold Stocks

Filed in BP, Ford, Gold, Gold Exploration, Gold Market, gold-stocks, Lear, New Gold, o, target by on February 18, 2011 0 Comments

For the past few weeks, I’ve been urging investors to take a close look at a quality gold exploration companies working in Canada’s Yukon Territory… But with so many Yukon gold stocks to choose from, it can be difficult for investors to determine which companies deserve the most attention. And that’s exactly why I put this article together for you today. For the first time ever, I’ll be publishing some of the guidelines I’ve been personally using to buy Yukon gold stocks. The very first thing investors should know is that the Yukon gold story is just getting started. Last year, nearly 80,000 new gold claims were staked in the Yukon. But this represents only 4% of the Yukon’s total land mass. There is still plenty of staking potential. In 2011, however, it’s very likely we’ll see several companies make big gold discoveries. In an average year, only about $20 or $30 million is spent exploring for gold in the Yukon. Now that the price of gold is breaking record highs, about $100 million is spent in an average year. But in 2011, the Yukon Geological Survey estimates almost $330 million will be spent for work programs and drilling this summer in the Yukon. With so much exploration going on, someone will no doubt find gold. Almost 20 million ounces of placer gold have been taken out of the Yukon Territory over the century. The Yukon overall has the biggest placer gold signatures in the world — meaning there are very large sources of gold in the Yukon from whence this gold sprang. Geologists generally agree that the source of the placer deposits is typically 10 times larger than the amount of placer gold discovered in an area. In the case of …

The Miracle of Regenerative Medicine

Tall, dark, and handsome… Dr. Anthony Atala is not a guy you could easily mistake for Dr. Frankenstein. Yet, in his white lab coat, Atala is doing exactly what author Mary Shelley wrote about so long ago. A mad scientist in his own right, he is busy growing body parts in his Wake Forest lab. A finger here, a bladder there, Atala is currently growing dozens of different tissues. And from heart valves to muscles to ears, his Institute for Regenerative Medicine is literally about to turn the world on its head. Working at one of the world’s largest research facilities dedicated to regenerative medicine, the modern Dr. Frankenstein is adamant that his research will one day replace diseased or damaged tissue using homegrown replacement parts. After all, as Dr. Atala often pondered, “A salamander can grow back its leg, why can’t a human do the same?” Now, some twenty-four years later, that notion is no longer just a wild hypothetical; it’s a feat of modern science, stripped from the pages of a 194-year-old novel. Today, regenerative medicine stocks are the companies to watch as this amazing new technology unfolds. The promise of regenerative medicine Take the story of Claudia Castillo, for instance. In 2008, this 30-year-old mother of two became the first patient to receive a whole organ transplant without the need for powerful anti-rejection drugs. Damaged by a bout of tuberculosis, her entire windpipe was repaired with a replacement part created with the help of her own stem cells. And given the choice between losing a lung or becoming a guinea pig for a radical new medical technique, Castillo chose the latter — becoming one of the pioneers for future regenerative surgeries. Her life these days is not only back to normal… She recently called her doctors from a nightclub to tell them she had been out dancing all night. Before the ground-breaking surgery, Castillo could barely climb the stairs. Claudia’s story is just the beginning… In fact Dr. Atala’s team is currently working on re-growing over 23 different organs including the liver, heart, kidney, and bladder. Along the way, they have conquered a number of milestones in the field. From the website , these firsts include: Developing biological strategies to enable certain human cell types that were previously thought not to be expandable outside the body to be grown in…

The Incredible Shrinking Middle Class

The Incredible Shrinking Middle Class

Here’s a copy of the chart of the day.As you might have suspected, the rich get richer while everyone else basically gets to tread water. The article that follows once again drives home a point I have been harping on for years now: The Middle Class in a state of terminal decline. And when it vanishes for good, America will be a very different place. If you ask me, in a lot of ways it already is…. From CNNMONEY by Annalyn Censky entitled: How the middle class became the underclass “ Are you better off than your parents? Probably not if you’re in the middle class. Incomes for 90% of Americans have been stuck in neutral, and it’s not just because of the Great Recession. Middle-class incomes have been stagnant for at least a generation, while the wealthiest tier has surged ahead at lighting speed. In 1988, the income of an average American taxpayer was $33,400, adjusted for inflation. Fast forward 20 years, and not much had changed: The average income was still just $33,000 in 2008, according to IRS data. Experts point to some of the usual suspects — like technology and globalization — to explain the widening gap between the haves and have-nots. One major pull on the working man was the decline of unions and other labor protections, said Bill Rodgers, a former chief economist for the Labor Department, now a professor at Rutgers University. International competition is another factor. While globalization has lifted millions out of poverty in developing nations, it hasn’t exactly been a win for middle class workers in the U.S. Factory workers have seen many of their jobs shipped to other countries where labor is cheaper, putting more downward pressure on American wages. “As we became more connected to China, that poses the question of whether our wages are being set in Beijing,” Rodgers said. Finding it harder to compete with cheaper manufacturing costs abroad, the U.S. has emerged as primarily a services-producing economy. That trend has created a cultural shift in the job skills American employers are looking for. As a result, the disparity between the wages for college educated workers versus high school grads has widened significantly since the 1980s. In 1980, workers …

Out of Egypt: Protests are Headed for America

Don’t think that what happened in Egypt can not possibly happen here. Because the truth is when a big swath of the population is no longer served by the festering status quo, they wake up one day and decide not play ball after all. And once that faith is lost, it is gone forever. I actually think we are much closer to that moment than most people would think. You see, I work all day in an office full of 20-somethings. They are a diverse bunch. They’re smart and they work hard. But the one thing they all have in common is they are stuck on a ladder with no where to go.  Buried in debt from student loans and various other sources, they are trapped in time unable grab the next rung. Among them the most common refrain is: “I can’t” They would like to further their education…but they can’t. They would like to buy a house…..but they can’t. They would like to buy a car….but they can’t. They would like to have children….but they can’t. There’s more to the list…but you get the picture. Of course, when you look at their list of wants you realize that what they want is no different than what everyone else has wanted at one time or another. The difference is in their world it’s a lot harder to attain—if not impossible in some cases. The reason for this is pretty simple: The cost of their dreams can’t be met with their incomes and adding more debt for them is not much of an option . Everything single thing on their list and then some simply costs too much. As a result, they go without. One day I suspect they will take to the streets. By the way, here’s a great video I found this morning on zerohedge.  It’s your life according to the government… The status quo cannot possibly be maintained.

Dividend Reinvestment Plans

Filed in BP, dividend, GOld juniors, Gold Market, o, shares, target, Yahoo by on February 9, 2011 0 Comments

As the old fable reminds us, it’s not always the hare who wins the race. For as savvy dividend investors surely know, it is the tortoise who prospers in the long run. That’s because the tortoise knows that income investing allows you to win two ways: first, with a cash payout; and second, through price appreciation. And the best part is you don’t exactly need to be star trader or marker timer to reach your financial goals using this strategy… You just need to be patient enough to push through the volatility onward to the higher ground. Of course, seasoned dividend investors themselves have known this for years. That’s why the truly rich don’t spend their days glued to the financial news like a bunch of lemmings. They realize that while most investors think trading is where the action is, investing in high-yielding income stocks is just as rewarding — provided you are smart enough to stick to a steady and persistent pace. In this style of investing, less truly is more. The Rule of 72 Because the biggest component behind this investment strategy is time — time, the greatest equalizer of them all. The secret to this approach is in the compounding effect that Albert Einstein once called “the most powerful force on earth.” In fact this force is so powerful that I think the government is deliberately keeping it from you. I say that because if the masses actually knew the income this compounding could deliver, they would immediately demand an end to Social Security as we know it. Why is that? you ask. That’s where the Rule of 72 comes in. The Rule of 72 says that in order to find the number of years it takes for you to double your investment at a given rate, just divide the yield into 72. For example: If your are earning a 9% dividend on your investment, it only takes eight years to double your money, and roughly 13 years to triple it. This compounding effect arises when your dividend yield is added to the principal, so that from that moment on, the interest begins to earn interest on itself. Over time, that process can add up to a small fortune — even with very modest investments. ~~SIGNUP_WD~~ The Retirement Blueprint By using this simple but powerful strategy, you can build a $270,000 nest egg in just 35 years by contributing as little as $100/month. That’s basically the cost of a cable bill, and it would yield a 525% gain — a market-beating average of 15% per year. And it’s easier to come by than you think… Let’s say you had saved $1,200 and started with an investment in one of my favorite dividend payers, Abbott Laboratories (NYSE: ABT ). That initial investment would buy you 26 shares of ABT at today’s prices, each one earning a dividend yield of 3.8%. Over time, that specific example would earn you a $270,000 payday as long as you simply reinvest your dividends, add a mere $100 a month to your account, and the underlying stock appreciates just 5% per year… Not bad. Here’s…

Load up on Food ETFs…

Filed in BP, commodities, euro, GOld juniors, Gold Market, o by on February 9, 2011 0 Comments

It’s time to load up on more food ETFs, like the Market Vectors Agribusiness ETF (MOO). The USDA just reported even more inventory cuts for agriculture commodities, including corn, wheat, soybeans, sugar and rice. Couple that with last week’s Food and Agriculture (FAO) of the UN Food Index report, and food-related ETFs are likely to rocket even more, according to Briefing.com. Just last week, the FAO reported that the food price index nailed new all-time highs for January. According to Briefing.com, “ The Index rose 3.4% from December, averaging 231 points in January. This is the highest level (both in real and nominal terms) since FAO started measuring food prices in 1990. Overall, prices of all monitored commodity groups registered strong gains in January, except for meat, which remained unchanged.” Even better… “Unusual weather in 2010 hit many areas of the world, including Russia, the U.S. and many parts of Europe, which has cut inventory levels in many agriculture commodities around the world to multi-year lows. Overall, many commodities have seen notable inventory reductions including corn, wheat, soybeans, soybean meal, soybean oil, sugar, rice and coffee. Palm oil and cooking oil inventories have also fallen notably. Overall, there are both supply and demand factors driving

Fear the Reaper

Fear the Reaper

It’s been a hell of a run. The economy is back on track. A new survey from the National Association for Business Economics suggested that jobs were coming: The number of economists who saw hiring by their firms increasing over the next six months was 42 percent, compared with 7 percent who expected to lay off workers. The NRI of 35 was the highest in the 12 years that the question has been asked. Some talking heads are suggesting the economy grew 3% in the fourth quarter of 2010. Companies slashed costs, became mean and lean, and drove profitability to record levels. Intel — one of the companies I told you to buy two weeks ago — just said it was buying back $10 billion in shares. Ben Bernanke has been pumping up liquidity to drive the stock market higher. His plan has worked to perfection… The Dow only goes up There is only one trade on right now. Group-think means the trend is your friend. “Don’t fight the Fed” is the mantra bleated by the sheeple. The blind squirrel investors have found their nut and assume there is another one just over there, ready to be eaten. This of course, raises my contrarian hackles. Take a look at this chart… Barry Ritholtz over at ritholtz.com had a great point when he wrote: At 90% gains, this market has run further and faster than any previous rally. Indeed, in just 20 months it has far outpaced every other rally’s 24 month record by some 50%; the next closest gainer was 65.7%. That does raise some cause for concern short term. The market has never gone so far, so fast as it has in the last two years. After a 90% run, which is a more likely scenario — that the Dow goes up another 90%, or that it corrects? Small caps lead Not only do small cap stocks (under $300 million market cap) lead over the long haul, but they also lead the way out of recessions. These are the smaller, quicker companies that are able to adjust to the economic landscape, and fast to roll out new products. T. Rowe Price found that in the 12 months following the previous nine recessions, small-cap stocks gained 24%, versus 17.6% for the S&P 500. Merrill Lynch reported that in the 18 bear markets since the 1930s, small caps gained an average of 41.4% in the 12 months after the end of the decline, compared with a gain of 32.4% for large caps. It has been true with this bounce back, as well. Small caps have been on fire until last week. As of Friday, small caps were down 4% for the week and 1% for the year… No more bailouts to states Another reason to think about taking some profits is that there are no more bailouts coming. The majority of 2008’s stimulus package went to the states. This equals about $400 billion that the states used to keep running…
