Just Another Day In Paradise

Jeez-Louise. I feel like I'm ready for another weekend and it's only Tuesday morning. But all is not lost...yet.

Wake up, O sleeper. Rise from the dead

As people begin to awaken from their slumber—awakening from a dream that all is well, that the economy is recovering, that the government statistics are correct and employment is improving—these people are seeing a grim reality that is not pleasant to look at. No wonder they want to stay asleep.

One year later, I thought it would be worthwhile to check back in on this investing thesis to see how these picks and sectors fared and to discuss what we might learn from their performance over the last year.

Waiting For Tuesday

Of course, maybe everything will be fine. Personally, however, there are a number of things that I would rather do than be short paper metal over the upcoming 3-day weekend:

  • Be waterboarded
  • Give birth
  • Prepare for a colonoscopy

We don't normally have podcasts on Thursday but today's action in the metals and global events demand this brief update.

A Frank Discussion with Jim Willie

As we approach another 3-day weekend, it was time to check in again with The Golden Jackass. Of course, I plan to make this a public thread on Friday after Vault subscribers have had some time to give it a listen first.
