What goes around comes around. See post 1, ReplayRandall. Maybe this is the start.

I see some nice selling in the early weeks of January as more individuals sell some of their big gainers now that the 2018 tax rate will be lower.

We should all welcome this as some great companies are close to their high price in intrinsic value. I've raised money recently too and will be lock and loaded and ready to buy some great companies again that will invariably be oversold.

Good luck, good health, and good returns to all at PA in 2018.

Half way in and still less than 2 cents



Amazing how the best stock in the world can go unnoticed for so long.

Don't own a single share of SFOR (and probably never will.)

That said, sometimes it is amazing just how long it can take.

For instance - look at the max chart for Amazon:
https://www.google.com/search?q=amzn...hrome&ie=UTF-8

Very little movement between 1999 and 2009. Then up 20x from there.

Not to be confused with Warren Buffett...I held on to Amazon from 2001 to 2008.

any stock that you have made money on is the best one in the world. i bought into the stock @ .007, sold most of my shares over .02 and am still holding 3 million shares that don't owe me anything and holding for a possible ride.

the guy can make fun of me or the stock, i gave it out right on these boards before it moved north. anyone could have bought it and made money on it.

the next stock that Alton Kelsey posts on this board will be the first one that i know of.

just for the record i still have another stock that i gave out quite awhile back that hasn't done anything for 6 years that i still love. MUX. this stock is very heavily shorted right now and has less than 3 weeks to replace the borrowed shares. it also needs the price of gold and silver to make some type of a move.

Sold my MUX a while back, and bought into TNDM - made a 4-bagger so far. Red hot stock that Kramer missed and won't touch now.

Hate to break it to you but there was tremendous movement during that period.



Guess you had to be there. You can't look at a long term chart on a big winner like 'Zon and see the early action clearly. If you want to see the price movement you'll have to zoom in on those years only.



SFOR long and strong. Look at that long term chart. It's a widow maker.

that thing is a rocketship with a nice chart. MUX not going to do much without the pog running. RGLD is one that is bucking the trend for now. its a royalty company with a big market cap and very few employees.

Just got FDA approval for a new device. Big move yesterday into today. Somebody's got to come up with an artificial pancreas.

Another favorite bash of mine, gold, touted here by some as a must buy, getting torched.

Shiny rocks have some weird appeal to the reptilian brain.

God knows, Iíve debated the gold bugs here ad nauseum. When the world nears itís end, apparently it will magically save whoever holds enough of it.

Iíve never gotten the attraction. Irragable farmland makes sense to me as a collapsed economy commodity Iíd want to own. I wouldnít trade that for a pile of magic beans which is apparently how most gold bugs see their hoard.

Itís been a terrible investment for any reasonably long horizon.

People who buy gold are like people who buy Trump.

Am I getting warm?

its great to see people so negative on precious metals. net longs in gold just hit a 3 year low after this past quick smash in price.

in my world i love it, and i love Trump as well. i suspect the people that were wrong about Trump getting elected are even more wrong when it comes to gold.
