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 …

How Savings and Investment Increase an Economy’s Output

Filed in BP, Debt, deflation, economy, interest-rates, Lear, o, silver, Spot Gold, target, US Dollar by on February 14, 2011 0 Comments

Everyone who has held a job and a bank account understands the potential benefit of postponing consumption today in order to enjoy greater consumption in the future. However, many people — if pressed — would explain this increase in saver’s income by an offsetting reduction in the income of a borrower in the economy. This is certainly a possibility. For example, if Bill (the borrower) forgets his lunch money on Monday, he might ask his coworker Sally (the saver), “Can you lend me $10 and I’ll pay you back $11 tomorrow?”  If Sally agrees, then it is clear that her $1 in interest on the personal loan was paid out of Bill’s reduced income for that month. In other words, if Bill’s take-home pay that month were $5,000, then he would actually only have $4,999 to work with, because of his $1 expenditure in “buying a loan” from Sally. At the same time, if Sally’s normal paycheck were also $5,000, then this particular month she would actually have $5,001 to work with, after earning $1 in providing “lending services” to Bill. In the scenario above, what basically happened is that Bill financed his consumption with an “advance” made by Sally. On the Monday morning is question, …

Dividend.com Weekend Edition – “Ground and Pound Your Way to Investing Success”

Filed in dividend, Gold, Gold Bullion prices, o, recession, target, ubs by on January 23, 2011 0 Comments

Well it’s finally here and as I wait to watch two big NFL championship games this afternoon, I wanted to write a piece about what it means to be consistent and not slack off if you are going to build your own “championship” nest egg/portfolio or whatever the goals are you’d like to reach. When I was younger and still in school, I was fascinated by successful business people and what they did to build their fortunes. What fascinated me was how many were able to get to unimagined levels without college degrees or family fortunes. Many zeroed in on an area they were passionate about and worked to be the best at what their profession/industry was. They would not be denied! What many people fail to realize is that as an investor you can also achieve tremendous success without needing to worry about not being on the same level financially with Wall Street professionals. The idea of investing in quality dividend stocks is a simple one. You have the beauty of compound interest acting as the “wind at your back” propelling the value of your portfolio higher. There are several things you have to remember to keep doing, including funding your account every month so money can be ready …

Goldrunner: Has Gold Topped? Nope, You Ain’t Seen Nothing, Yet!

A Gold Bull Market is much like a bucking bronco in the Old West – constantly trying to buck investors out of the saddle – as many in the Precious Metals universe are calling an intermediate-term top for Gold. Some are even suggesting that we have seen the final top in the Historic Gold Bull. We have a completely different view maintaining that we are very close to the juncture where Gold starts another rip higher into May or June. Let me explain. Words: 908

This special report is courtesy of TheStockAdvisors.com . “Bloomberg recently reported that China has recorded two straight months of reducing its holdings of Japanese debt; t.his suggests that the Japanese yen has reached the point where it’s become too ‘strong’ for its own good — or at least for China’s taste,” says global stock specialist Keith Fitz-Gerald . The editor of The New China Trader explains, “Considering China has become the world’s de facto financier, we’d be wise to pay attention.

Market Wrap-Up for Dec.17 (BMO, MI, ACN, ORCL, MA, V, more)

We’re happy to announce our new Dividend ETFs section on our site today! We want to bring our subscribers a roster of ETF options for anyone considering a bit more diversification and exposure to international markets. We do not currently rate the ETFs, but do give readers the trend direction to follow. The data will be updated each day, so be sure to check it out. Also, Tom and I just wrapped up our “Top 3 Market Themes of the Week” video , so be sure to give it a look. Lots of good stuff! Some good news came out this morning for investors, as it appears the Bush tax cuts are well on their way (as we figured they would). This is one less worry for the markets at this point, but with the upward price action we have seen the last 19 months or so, any worries have been easily handled by investors. At some point this could change and it would mean the investing climate could get trickier. We’ll be sure to keep readers posted as to when we see the potential danger signs. We swapped two new names on to our recommended list this morning, while removing two previous recommendations. Be sure to check out the post if you did not read the e-mail alert we sent out this morning. Interesting news out today from Bank of Montreal ( BMO ), which is looking to acquire former TARP recipient Marshall & Ilsley ( MI ). It is a bit of a strange move for the Canadian banking play to want to buy one of the more struggling bank plays, with other banking companies in the same market cap range that are acting better from a stock price performance standpoint. Investors are none too happy, with BMO shares finishing down 7%. On the earnings front, investors cheered results from Oracle Corp ( ORCL ) and Accenture ( ACN ). These former recommendations are still on our radar and we are watching both stocks closely. Some investors were surprised there was no rebound today for credit card plays MasterCard ( MA ) and Visa ( V ) following yesterday’s big drop on debit card fee concerns. Looking ahead to next week, earnings will continue to be light, with notables such as Darden Restaurants ( DRI ), Nike ( NKE ) and Walgreen Co. ( WAG ) set to report. Be sure to catch up with our latest watchlist updates, including the new

Boost Returns with Select Dividend ETF (DVY)

Filed under: Newsletters , ETF Investing “With conventional income investments like U.S. Treasuries, CDs, and corporates paying puny yields, investors need to consider dividend-paying stocks as a core component of an income strategy,” notes Ian Wyatt . The editor of The 100k Portfolio explains, “One way to do this is by purchasing the iShares Dow Jones Select Dividend Index Fund ( DVY ), which is the oldest and largest dividend-focused ETF. “The S&P 500 as a whole is currently yielding a healthy two percent. And the ten largest dividend-paying stocks in the U.S. have an average yield of four percent.
