The Screaming Fundamentals For Owning Gold

Updated 2014 edition
Friday, April 4, 2014, 9:44 AM

This report lays out the investment thesis for gold. Silver is mentioned only where necessary, as a separate report of equal scope will be forthcoming on that topic. Various factors lead me to conclude that gold is one investment that you can park for the next ten or twenty years, confident that it will perform well. Timing and logic for both entering and finally exiting gold as an investment are laid out in the full report.

The punch line is this: Gold (and silver) is not in bubble territory, and its largest gains remain yet to be realized; especially if current monetary, fiscal, and fundamental supply-and-demand trends remain in play.

Have We Reached Peak Wall Street?

An argument its dominance is in decline
Monday, March 31, 2014, 7:14 PM

Though the mainstream financial media and the blogosphere differ radically on their forecasts—the MFM sees near-zero systemic risk while the alternative media sees a critical confluence of it—they agree on one thing: the Federal Reserve and the “too big to fail” (TBTF) Wall Street banks have their hands on the political and financial tiller of the nation, and nothing will dislodge their dominance.

But what id Wall Street’s power has peaked and is about to be challenged by forces that it has never faced before? Put another way,what if the power of Wall Street has reached a systemic extreme where a decline or reversal is inevitable? » Read more

Weather Is 1,557% More Harmful Than Helpful To Corporate Profits

Or so we're being told
Wednesday, March 26, 2014, 8:55 PM

It's just another day in the spin factory so let's have some fun with it.

Lately 'bad weather' was cited as the reason that Walmart and FedEx earnings were disappointing.  If it isn't 'one-time' charges that happen every quarter being removed from reported results, it's the weather being blamed for somehow hurting operations. » Read more

Why 2014 Is Beginning to Look A Lot Like 2008

The similarities are stacking up
Wednesday, March 12, 2014, 12:06 PM

Does anything about 2014 remind you of 2008? 

The long lists of visible stress in the global financial system and the almost laughably hollow assurances that there are no bubbles, everything is under control, etc. etc. etc.  certainly remind me of the late-2007-early 2008 period when the subprime mortgage meltdown was already visible and officialdom from Federal Reserve chairman Alan Greenspan on down were mounting the bully pulpit at every opportunity to declare that there was no bubble in housing and the system was easily able to handle little things like default » Read more

Are You Crazy To Continue Believing In Collapse?

That it hasn't happened yet doesn't mean you're wrong
Wednesday, March 5, 2014, 5:16 AM

It’s nerve-wracking to live in the historical moment of an epic turning point, especially when the great groaning garbage barge of late industrial civilization doesn’t turn quickly where you know it must, and you are left feeling naked and ashamed with your dark worldview, your careful preparations for a difficult future, and your scornful or tittering relatives reminding you each day what a ninny you are to worry about the tendings of events.

Persevere. There are worse things in this life than not being right exactly on schedule » Read more

The Stock Market's Shaky Foundation

Crumbling fundamentals in both the short term & long
Wednesday, February 26, 2014, 8:21 PM

According to the stock markets in the US and in Europe, the world’s economy is not just in good shape, but is in the best shape it’s ever been

The S&P 500 hit an intraday new record high of 1858.71 on Feb 24, 2014, and is now 18.6% above the peak it hit in 2007, a moment everybody now recognizes was heavily overvalued.

A nearly 19% gain above the prior all time high is an enormous and unusual event.  Surely there must be an equally compelling story and loads of fundamental data to support such a bull market? » Read more
