    Henry Blodget Rises Again

    I read Business Insider every day, great stuff and easy reading! Henry seems to be getting in 'trouble' all the time.

    I'll answer my own question: http://blogs.barrons.com/focusonfunds/2012/07/12/ignore-todays-noise-in-sprott-silver-fund/?mod=yahoobarrons&source=email_rt_mc_body&ifp=0 "The Sprott fund is down 3.8% in mid-Thursday trading at a time when the iShares Silver Trust (SLV) is up 0.3%. What gives! You ask. Sprott priced a follow-on offering of 18.1 million shares at $11.05, for proceeds of about $200 million, or $230 million if underwriters exercise their over-allotment option. Judge the offering by its relationship to the net-asset value, which stood at $10.71 as of yesterday, or a 7.2% premium to the market value, according to CEF Connect. The offering priced at 3.2% above last night’s NAV. In plain English, Sprott turned some of the fund’s premium into cash it can use to buy more silver in the future. And it got a better price for the shares than the value of the underlying assets." Ended up buying a teeny bit more at $11.01! AGQ actually closed the day up 0.68%

    How on earth has PSLV dropped 4.3% today whilst AGQ is only down 1.7% !?

    HSBC to Hang Seng? I think HSBC are amongst the safest out there of the global banks.

    Surely silver will follow a similar route? I was hoping not to have to go in and out of gold/silver too much.

    I started averaging in (small amounts) on Tuesday. Wish I knew when it would stop falling. There seems to be a lot of bearish sentiment floating round which is good, but gets me thinking I should be waiting until silver nudges below $27 before buying in bulk. I wish I understood options, so I'm going to have to give the calls and puts game a miss. Can you recommend any good books on options for lower intelligence people like me DrBubb.

    Hi do you still have positions in AGQ?
  13. His son just released a statement on The Harvard Crimson.. lol http://www.thecrimson.com/article/2012/4/24/bo-guagua-statement-to-the-crimson/
  14. Schools are a big reason as well for property taxes. Slightly annoying as I don't have any children! "Outlook for the Busted U.S. Housing Market, Cheapest Prices in 40 Years" http://www.marketoracle.co.uk/Article34045.html
  15. A few REIT's I am watching are: Chimera Investment Corp. Udr Inc. Home Properties Investors Real Estate Trust (heavy insider buying relatively recently) Agree with DrB that all look too expensive right now. IRET perhaps is the only one which is not at such a high, but the company fundamentals are not as attractive as the other three.
