TFMR Podcast #9 - "Ranting Andy" Hoffman

213

Yesterday, I had an opportunity to speak with Andy Hoffman of Miles Franklin Precious Metals Investments. If you not already a fan of the daily "Ranting Andy" blogposts from Miles Franklin, you likely become one after you've listened to this forty-minute podcast.

Brash, bold and insightful, Andy combines his expert analysis with a New York, tell-it-like-it-is attitude. The result is some of the consistently best PM analysis on the internet.

Do the best that you are able...

A retired and wise bond client named August use to say to me, " young feller just do the best that you are able, with whatever it is you happen to be working with and the rest will take care of itself"

Happy New Year

Thanks, ClinkinKY

I guess being number 1 is the best I can hope for since Turd will always be number 2.

Sorry Ferd

If you hadn't been responding to me you probably would have been first. You'll always be Number 1 in my book:)

New Thread

I got third. Very intoxicating achievement for one who doesn't get out much.

@ ClinkinKY

As a follow up on my reply to your question of last week, I ordered my Krugs and ASE's from Provident on Friday 12/16. Paid by wire same day. Items shipped from Lavon, TX on Tuesday 12/20. Received in Houston, TX area on Friday 12/23 - one week after order placed.

Just a guess but it may be that they are back-ordered from their supplier in getting their hands on the ASE's for your order.

@Fr. Bill - Just read

@Fr. Bill - Just read your post from last night - great stuff. Some people are given the "job" to spread the word. They are the "speaking" prophets (versus the "seeing (future)" ones). It is the lousiest of all the spiritual gifts - the one nobody wants and the one most religious leaders hate. If God this gift to a person, life sucks and there's nothing much you can do about it. Just do what you are lead to do and try to find consolation in other places. Re-reading Isaiah and Jeremiah along the way helps.

O.T. But ...

I asked last week about ordering from Provident, Gainesville, APMEX etc and eventually ordered 100 ASEs from Gainesville. Bank wire transfer was made the same day (12-21-11) and confirmation was received later in day. They are showing an expected shipping date of 1-4-12. Is 14 days the "usual" wait for shipping? Thanks in advance.

this week

not much volume to speak of--gold hanging around 1600 and silver 29

action starts again next week and I bet we see PM all over the place until we get some direction from something like USD, or QE.

With Sears having troubles, tie that to Best Buys troubles and I'd have to think retail sales and profits will be hard pressed to be good this year.

HUI can't get traction

Us too

Stop by the Speakeasy for a drink some time. It's been quite of late, but if the metals and miners ever get moving we bring in a lively crowd.
