    The problem is that the economy is changing SO MUCH and SO FAST that it pays to look at non-dividend payers and dividend growers. The reliance on the old value sectors -- Consumer Staples, Energy, Finance, etc. -- could be a "value trap."

    I thought there was a threat here that I created or posted on where I discussed financial markets and also posted research. I'll see if I can re-start that and if you guys want we can schmooze on the markets over there....:D

    No doubt, as well as the dominance of US versus World. I still believe a balanced portfolio of US and world, along with value and growth, is prudent. I just chafe at bad financial reporting. I find most of it to be half truths at best. No one knows the future, but at least be truthful and educate properly.

    There is also an interesting article about the physical metal "shortage" at Seeking Alpha - https://seekingalpha.com/article/4334005-gap-paper-and-physical-gold-and-silver-will-close

    The problem with this good delivery bar [GDB] squeeze in gold is that the central banks have huge supplies of GDB's and may step in to stabilize the market -

    The Hunt brothers were able to [temporarily] squeeze the silver good delivery bar market because there was no huge supply of silver GDB's anywhere.

    SA has some good articles (and the Comments section are great). I used to write for SA.

    The problem is that many are just talking their books, especially the Gold Bugs and those bent on quasi-conspiracy stuff.

    That said, this particular piece on the "shortage" looks prettty well thought out.


    Also, lack of information relative to today (no CNBC, no internet, no PC's at home, etc.).

    We now see these squeezes in tech stocks like TSLA ! :D

    Temporary shut-ins don't affect price too much.

    Great discussion! Thanks for the insights.

    For myself, I bought some raw gold eagles and maple leafs, as well as pre-1933 slabbed gold coins and modern gold proof sets, when gold was between about $1,200.00 and $1,500.00. I am breakeven on everything with gold at about $1,600.00. This includes some $1.00, $2.50, $5.00 and $10.00 coins that I bought for 2 to 8 times the bullion value.

    I have no plan to sell, but I'm hesitant to buy more now, except for some pre-1933 gold coins that aren't too effected by the bullion price.

    I see my collection as a hedge against inflation, and there's a lot more coming with the $trillions being created in just a few months.

    I'm not banking on inflation, my coins/bullion are insurance against anything that happens alongside $10,000 an ounce gold.

    I could give a rats ass about gold moving to $2,000 or even $2,500. Could be there in a few years if jewelry demand picks up from China and India and central bank selling abates.

    Exactly! I agree totally, I hope all this quantitative easing don't turn our money into Zimbabwe bucks! :D Whatever the case, gold will gladly remain the King of the Mountain! I just bought this 1/4 ounce coin set off of the bay, I won it in auction $492 and change, but I'm not worried about it at all! Just delivered to me today! It's definitely one of my most expensive coin sets but that's okay, I think I'll end up okay! Guess you could say, I'm betting on it! :cigar:
