Chris Temple 0

  A few semi-hysterical folks in the media (especially those who detest the U.S. president) warn that Trump is starting a full-fledged trade war that will crater the global economy.

Chris Temple 0

Now THIS was “Gold Suppression!”

Chris Temple 0

I regularly call out the carnival barker types among the "Pied Pipers of the Gold Bug Echo Chamber" for putting out utter nonsense at times as they frantically fight over a shrinking audience of well-meaning but impressionable investors who appreciate gold's historical role. One of the dopier story lines for…

Chris Temple 0

I for one find it MOST gratifying that the Hildabeast has recently been hoist on her very own "The Russians Are Coming!" petard. But that said, much of what you have heard about that Uranium One scandal involving the Clintons is an exaggeration. Still, a silver lining could be emerging;…

Trump’s Neo-Mercantilism is NOT Populism!

Chris Temple 0

(Posted February 1, 2017) -- FINALLY, in a Financial Times piece this morning, I saw the broad economic trade/policy provisions of President Trump correctly identified.  Whereas elsewhere this major newspaper (and most of the rest of the media) have INCORRECTLY described as "populist" what Trump is pushing, he is instead…

The Sarepta saga continues. . .

Chris Temple 0

Generally, I do not make known to anyone other than paid Members the specific ETF's and stocks I recommend; at least until well after they have first had a chance to act, and usually not even then.  But the ongoing story of Sarepta Therapeutics (Nasdaq-SRPT) is more than an investment…
