Top Stocks Selling Below Cash

If you are looking for very cheap stocks, you may want to look for stocks that are selling below cash per share. What this means is if you take all the cash a company has and divide it by the number of shares, you get the cash per share. There are actually over 60 stocks out there, discovered by WallStreetNewsNetwork.com, which are trading below that cash amount.

The following are a list of 11 stocks, all with market caps over $400 million, which are trading way below cash per share, therefore, with a Price to Cash per Share [PCS] ratio of way below 1. Keep in mind that many of these are foreign companies, many have high debt, and many are in struggling industries. Financials are based on several sources, but should be investigated before investing in any of these stocks.

Mitsubishi UFJ ( MTU ) is a financial services and banking company based in Tokyo, Japan. The stock has a price to cash per share ratio of 0.208 , with a PE ratio of 11.7 .

Gov Bank of Ireland ( IRE ) is an Irish banking and other financial services firm. The stock has a price to cash per share ratio of 0.218 , with a PE ratio of 0.95 and a PEG of 0.09 .

Dear Trader,

Gold at the moment is perplexing to a great many traders. To many it was a shock when gold recently traded below the $700 an ounce level. So the question is, what happened to the $2,000 an ounce target that most gold bugs were calling for?

In my just released video, we explore that question and look at what we think will be this markets next move. You might find our analysis and conclusions rather surprising.

Enjoy the video!

Guest Article: Lessons Learned from Second Life

Lessons Learned from Second Life
By Dr. Tracy Tuten,
Author of Advertising 2.0: Social Media Marketing in a Web 2.0 World


Virtual worlds give participants an opportunity to be whoever they want, wish or hope to be. With a custom designed "avatar," you can look, behave and speak any way you want. It's your "second life," after all.

Brands, however, don't have that luxury. They bring established reputations and perceptions into a realm where everything is new and anything goes.

The "Wild West" nature of virtual worlds frightens brand managers schooled in carefully crafted and controlled messages, and Second Life indeed chased many away.

But with technology -- and especially social media -- becoming more and more pervasive in consumers' lives, virtual worlds will get a second chance. Here's how to capitalize on it.

Second Life and other virtual worlds have enormous branding opportunities. In terms of social media, virtual worlds really are communities in the most literal sense, and it is the level of interaction and engagement that creates such a strong platform for branding. Some brands (like Vodaphone) have found ways to develop interactive spaces in world that intrigue and engage prospective customers. For these brands, virtual world marketing is much like participating in a sponsorship: the presence is valuable if there's a good fit between the space, the target market and the brand -- and if the brand can find a way to add value for those visiting the space.

For some brands, though, virtual worlds are not the most friendly of communities. They may find that other forms of social media marketing are better suited -- or at least simpler to manage (particularly if the virtual world in question is Second Life)! Here are a few factors that can help you understand "why" . . . or "why not."

Ease of Use
Second Life is complex and user-unfriendly. Time magazine called it a case of Fortune 500 companies trying too hard to be hip. A recent report from Forrester suggests that marketing in virtual worlds is still too complex for broad adoption as a business strategy, but that this is likely to change in the next five years. Complexity is an issue, not only from the marketer's perspective, but also from the consumer perspective. It is one of the primary characteristics that can slow the rate of adoption for innovators. Some virtual worlds are easier to learn than others; Second Life is likely the most difficult to learn.

Software Requirements
Second Life, and some other virtual worlds, requires users to install its software. Software installation could be a deterrent to growth beyond the innovators and early adopters already a part of the virtual world phenomenon.

Number of Active Members
Second Life, for example, does not have the reach that other online advertising venues garner. Despite the claim of millions of residents (with continual growth), under a million are active and engaged.

Opportunities for Negative Response
Residents of Second Life are known to dislike and distrust big brand promotion. "Griefing," vandalizing and harassing in world, is a common problem for brands. Linden Labs takes a hands-off approach to managing griefer attacks, relying instead on resident governance. How bad can griefing be? A helicopter crashed into a Nissan building, starting a fire that left a couple of dead bodies, and American Apparel customers were attacked by members of the Second Life Liberation Army armed with virtual guns.

Accuracy of Results Reporting
Second Life offers publicity and the value of free media impressions as social and other media cover new developments. However, no distinction is made between positive coverage and negative coverage. When the media attention is negative, such as reporting attacks on customers, the publicity does not build brand equity.

User Security
Aside from the security from griefers, Second Life has struggled to provide security to the real life people behind the avatars. In 2006, hackers obtained credit card information for some residents.

User Capacity
Second Life's infrastructure limits the capacity at some events. Your brand might do a phenomenal job of planning and executing a relevant brand experience with an outpouring of enthusiasm, only to find the system crashes when more than 70 avatars are present at a time.

Number of User Interactions
Of course, capacity concerns are only an issue if things go well. Spend some time walking or flying around Second Life. It is filled with exquisitely detailed representations of real and fantasy locations. Yet seeing other avatars is rare unless one is spending time earning free Linden $ (the currency of Second Life) at Money Island.

Tie-In to Real World Sales
Some brands have sold digital versions of their products. Toyota, Reebok, Adidas, and Dell are all examples. No brand has yet announced success at using the in world branding site as a direct response tool for real world sales. Bob Tedeschi, in his article entitled "Awaiting Real Sales from Virtual Shoppers," explains that brands experience little measurable influence on real world sales that can be tracked to virtual branding efforts.

Number of Media Outlets
There are still a limited number of Second Life media outlets and advertising opportunities (beyond supporting retail space, experiential facilities, and events). NPR and Reuters are there, along with the AvaStar newspaper, but for brands accustomed to buying ad space in hundreds of television networks, consumer and trade magazines, and national, regional, and local newspapers, this is not a rich media landscape. Ad inventory will develop over time. A "MetaAdverse" network has been established to provide in-world billboard advertising.

Scalable Branding Initiatives
It is difficult to gain economies of scale in branding initiatives. One cannot lower the average costs of products by making mass amounts of products, and there are no huge media buys to lower the costs of advertising.

Design Costs
There are expenses to brand building in Second Life. Linden Labs sells land and then requires ongoing maintenance fees. Those are minimal compared to the design expenses brands encounter. Alex Veiga points out that brand building requires artists, designers, writers, and marketers to develop all aspects of the brand's identity in Second Life. Scion City, a Toyota initiative, took about 10 weeks and probably cost in the range of $100,000. Importantly, brands that enter Second Life must be committed to operating there. It does no good (and in fact could harm a brand) to have a presence there that is not manned, managed, and leveraged towards accomplishing the brand's objectives.


In open worlds, economies are free markets. Brands are welcome to compete and the spoils go to the brands with the best strategy, the best targeting and the best engagement propositions for their target audiences (mindful, of course, to ensure the strategy is suitable for the virtual culture in question). The brands with the wherewithal to strategically plan a social media marketing campaign will also know to commit to the campaign and to provide ample time for the strategy to work prior to making judgments of success or failure and redirecting resources to other marketing executions.

In other words, they'll understand and capitalize on why . . . or why not.

Quote of the day from a fund manager:

'This is worse than a divorce... I've lost half of my net worth and I still have my wife..'

Forest Gump Explanation of the Economy

This is an email that has been floating around the Internet.


Mortgage Backed Securities are like boxes of chocolates. Criminals on Wall Street stole a few chocolates from the boxes and replaced them with turds. Their criminal buddies at Standard & Poor rated these boxes AAA Investment Grade chocolates. These boxes were then sold all over the world to investors. Eventually somebody bites into a turd and discovers the crime. Suddenly nobody trusts American chocolates anymore worldwide. Hank Paulson now wants the American taxpayers to buy up and hold all these boxes of turd-infested chocolates for $700 billion dollars until the market for turds returns to normal. Meanwhile, Hank's buddies, the Wall Street criminals who stole all the good chocolates are not being investigated, arrested, or indicted. Mama always said: 'Sniff the chocolates first, Forrest'.

The MacWorld Expo Apple Stock Correlation

I started writing about the MacWorld Expo Apple (AAPL) Stock correlation back in January 14, 2007, in an article called the 'MacWorld Expo Apple Stock Price Indicator' which I have been following for years. This is the stock trend which has historically shown that the price of Apple Computer (AAPL) stock increases as the San Francisco MacWorld Expo convention approaches. My previous articles described how in the previous five out of the last six years, Apple Computer stock has increased by at least 8% and as much as 37%, measured from November 15 to the last day of the Expo in January.

What causes this to happen? Probably strong year-end sales of Apple products from holiday shopping, anticipation and release of new products to be released at the Expo, and the heavy promotion of the MacWorld Expo which is indirect stock promotion. As I mentioned in a previous article, 'the product buzz created the stock buzz'.

The following table shows the results since 2001. A few notes about this analysis. For the 2008 Expo, the stock was down slightly, although on January 15 at the beginning of the conference, the stock closed higher than the previous November 15 date. This just looks at the 'effect' of the MacWorld Expo in San Francisco, not New York or Boston. If a date fell on a weekend, it was moved to the next business day to determine pricing. All prices were adjusted for splits and all returns rounded to the nearest percent.

11/15/2001 ...... 9.73 ..... 1/11/2002 ..... 10.52 ....... 8%
11/15/2002 ...... 7.97 ..... 1/10/2003 ...... 7.36 ...... -8%
11/15/2003 ..... 10.56 ...... 1/8/2004 ..... 11.50 ....... 9%
11/15/2004 ..... 27.62 ..... 1/14/2005 ..... 35.10 ..... 27%
11/15/2005 ..... 62.28 ..... 1/13/2006 ..... 85.59 ..... 37%
11/15/2006 ..... 84.05 ..... 1/12/2007 ..... 94.62 ..... 13%
11/15/2007 .....164.30 ..... 1/18/2008 ..... 161.36 ... -1.8%
Average Return .................................................. 12%

By the way, Apple was one of my screaming buys.

Keep in mind that past performance is not a guarantee of future results. No recommendation is expressed or implied.

Book Review: Conspiracy of Paper

A Conspiracy of Paper: A Novel was first recommended to me by a young history professor. When she first told me it was a historical novel, my first thought was "uh-oh, gag me with a bookmark". But I decided to give the book a try because she said it involved the South Sea Company, considered to be the first major publicly traded stock. Much to my delight, I really enjoyed the book and highly recommend it.

If you like Sherlock Holmes, financial history, mysteries, and the stock market, you will like A Conspiracy of Paper by David Liss. The book takes place in the early 1700's (way before Sherlock Holmes, but it has the same Doyle style) in London, and the main character, Benjamin Weaver, is about the closest thing to a consulting detective at that time; he is actually an ex-boxer, a retriever of stolen goods, and a "constable-for-hire". The plot involves the South Sea Company and the possibility of fake shares in the company being circulated, and the activity around Exchange Alley, the "stock exchange" of the era. There are two murders that Weaver is investigating, one he was hired to solve, the other is the murder of his father.

This historically accurate novel has several sub-plots weaved through the novel. If you want a great enjoyable read, or you are looking for a gift for the financial history buff, then A Conspiracy of Paper is for you.

Highest Yielding Stocks Going Ex Dividend Mid November

Investors occasionally use a stock trading technique called 'Buying Dividends,' which is the technique of buying stocks before the ex dividend date and selling the stock shortly after the ex date at about the same price, yet still being entitled to the dividend. This technique generally works only in bull markets.

If you are interested in buying dividends, there are many stocks in many different industries to choose from. In order to be entitled to the dividend, you have to buy the stock before the ex-dividend date, and you can't sell the stock until after the ex date. The actual dividend may not be paid for another few weeks.

All of the following stocks have market caps over $500 million, and yields over 4.5%.

The Student Loan Corp. (STU) Ex-dividend date: 11/12/2008 Yield: 12.64% .

CIT Group Inc. (CIT) Ex-dividend date: 11/12/2008 Yield: 12.16% .

Deluxe Corporation (DLX) Ex-dividend date: 11/13/2008 Yield: 10.47% .

Highwoods Properties, Inc. (HIW) Ex-dividend date: 11/13/2008 Yield: 7.89% .

TOTAL S.A. (TOT) Ex-dividend date: 11/14/2008 Yield: 6.93% .

International Paper Company (IP) Ex-dividend date: 11/13/2008 Yield: 6.05% .

Astoria Financial Corporation (AF) Ex-dividend date: 11/13/2008 Yield: 5.99% .

Eli Lilly & Co. (LLY) Ex-dividend date: 11/12/2008 Yield: 5.62% .

Shaw Communications Inc. (SJR) Ex-dividend date: 11/13/2008 Yield: 5.11% .

Principal Financial Group, Inc. (PFG) Ex-dividend date: 11/12/2008 Yield: 4.84% .

Highest Yielding Income Partnership Stocks over 8%

Income partnerships, generally known as Master Limited Partnerships or MLP's or US Income Partnerships, are investments that are similar to income royalty trusts, except that they are structured as limited partnerships. MLP's have certain advantages over regular stocks with high dividends. There is no double taxation because the income is passed through without being taxed at the corporate level. Also, they can pass through tax deductions. However, there are a couple issues you should be aware of, that make them different from income trusts.

For example, income partnerships don't send out 1099 forms, they send out a Schedule K-1 Form, and the income is reported on your tax return differently from regular dividends. In addition, you should never, ever put an MLP into a retirement plan because of the UBTI or Unrelated Business Taxable Income problem, which could put the tax deferred status of your retirement plan in jeopardy, based on what I understand. MLP closed end funds should not be a problem. However, since I am not an accountant, please discuss MLP's with your accountant or CPA for clarification, before investing in MLPs.

Most MLP's are generally involved in pipeline businesses, usually oil and gas, and usually have very high dividends. Here are some with some high yields.

Terra Nitrogen Company, L.P. (TNH) a Sioux City, Iowa based company producer and distributor of nitrogen fertilizer products, has a yield of over 16.9%. They distribute anhydrous ammonia and urea ammonium nitrate solutions. This New York Stock Exchange company has a P/E of 6.

Atlas Pipeline Partners LP (APL) is a Pennsylvania based company natural gas distributor with approximately 7,900 miles of intrastate gas gathering pipelines, that yields 16.5%. They have a forward P/E of 7 and a PEG of 2.56.

Rio Vista Energy Partners LP (RVEP), a producer of oil and natural gas, yields 16%. Earnings have recently been negative.

Teekay LNG Partners LP. (TGP) is a marine transportation company which yields 15%. They transport liquefied natural gas, liquefied petroleum gas, and crude oil. The stock has a forward PE of 9 and a PEG of 1.99.

Ferrellgas Partners LP (FGP), the propane distribution company, has a yield of 12.3%. This Overland Park, Kansas company distributes gas throughout the US. The stock has a P/E of 40 and a PEG of 2.88.

Another high yield partnership is Energy Transfer Partners L.P. (ETP) which has a payout of 9.8%. The company is in the business of transporting and storing natural gas through its pipelines. The stock, which trades on the NYSE, has a P/E of 9.

You can find an Excel spreadsheet list of over a dozen master limited partnerships, which can be downloaded, sorted, added to and changed, at WallStreetNewsNetwork.com.

Top Stocks for Day Traders

Beta is one measurement of risk. Beta, also known as the beta coefficient, measures how the expected return of a stock is correlated to the performance of the stock market as a whole. A positive beta, such as a 1 or 2, means that the stock usually tracks the market in general. A zero beta means that the stock price is not correlated with the stock market at all. And a negative beta means that the stock tracks the market inversely.

A beta of 1 means the stock tracks the market directly, e.g. 1% up in the market means 1% up for the stock. The higher the beta, the more riskier the stock, yet the greater the return potential. For example, if the stock market increases by 3%, a stock with a beta of 2 should increase by 6%; in other words, twice as much. So for day traders, high beta stocks may be the way to go.

The following stocks have betas above 2.5, PE ratios less than 20, PEG ratios less than 1, and market caps greater than $500 million.

GrafTech International Ltd. (GTI) The stock has a beta of 3.1 It has a PE of 5.3 and a PEG of 0.49 .

United States Steel Corporation (X) The stock has a beta of 2.8 It has a PE of 4.2 and a PEG of 0.62 .

DryShips Inc. (DRYS) The stock has a beta of 2.8 It has a PE of 1.1 and a PEG of 0.01 .

Guest Article: Shedding Light on Dark Marketing

Shedding Light on Dark Marketing
By Dr. Tracy Tuten,
Author of Advertising 2.0: Social Media Marketing in a Web 2.0 World


Dark Marketing is slowly making its way into the advertising lexicon, and for good reason. Rock bands like Nine Inch Nails and burger giant McDonalds (MCD) have unleashed its brand engagement and reinforcement capabilities with results marketing chiefs can cheer.

But, for many in the industry, the term is still more likely to conjure an image of Darth Vader opening a bag of Cool Ranch Doritos instead of what the concept delivers: legions of brand enthusiasts actively participating in an artfully designed and carefully executed brand marketing campaign that spans countries and continents.

It's powerful stuff.

Here's a brief primer, and, for brands that can, a "how-to-market darkly" checklist.

Let there be Light

Dark Marketing isn't sinister, but it borders on covert. At its core is the alternative reality game [ARG], a complex, creative and purposeful scenario that brings brands to life.

ARGs are interactive narratives that comprise fiction and nonfiction, mystery and detection and scripted and unscripted activities that invite participation. The games unfold on (and are made possible by) multiple forms of traditional and online media. ARGs may use telephones, e-mail, outdoor signage, t-shirts, television, social networks, music, blogs and more to introduce an engaging storyline, motivate behavior, reveal game clues and advance the narrative in ways that hold player interest.

Take, for example, Microsoft's (MSFT) "I Love Bees" campaign used to promote the launch of Halo 2, a hit video game. It's a great illustration of how ARGs go under the radar of traditional marketing to rally consumers to the brand.

Microsoft launched the game by FedEx-ing (FDX) jars of honey to several Halo players. A few days later, the promotional trailer for Halo 2 referenced a Web site, ilovebees.com/xbox.com. The Web site provided lists of pay phone numbers, GPS coordinates for the phones and times when each listed number would be called, driving the curious to find the phones and answer the calls. The calls delivered additional clues that advanced the ARG, promoted Halo 2 and reinforced the brand.

From the start of the game until its conclusion (with players earning a preview experience of the Halo 2 game), players and observers visited the I Love Bees Web site for updates on the narrative and new clues about the game. Independent Web sites and forums sprang up, generating game theories, conspiracies, storylines and, of course, marketing buzz.

Not for Everyone

ARGs work best for brands with target markets that enjoy the aspects of interactive, social games with online components. Commenting on why "I Love Bees" was so successful for Microsoft, James Hilton, creative director for AKQA, the agency that developed the ARG, said, "It worked well for Xbox because its audience is inclined to investigate further, hack into sites and solve problems." There must be a good fit between the brand, the meaning the brand wishes to communicate, the target market and the story and plot that anchor the ARG.

After determining fit, roll up your sleeves. ARGs demand substantial work -- from initial conception through planning and execution. Further, because the storyline can change depending on response from players, ARGs require agility, quick writing and responsiveness from game architects (known as puppet masters) through the game's conclusion.

Additionally, if player response takes ARGs in unintended directions, marketers charged with tightly controlling brand meaning may find themselves taking unwanted risks.

Finally, compared to some marketing options, an ARG's reach can be small. For example, measures of Audi's success with an ARG referred to reaching 500,000 people. A display ad on the MySpace homepage, for example, could have reached millions. Of course, the attention and involvement components are entirely different for these two examples, and it is important to consider the entire range of benefits and disadvantages associated ARGs and other marketing activities.

Getting to the Dark Side

ARGs engage brand enthusiasts, drive publicity and create buzz. They allow brands to tell their stories creatively, interactively and virally. If you're ready to give one a shot, follow these guidelines:

* Have a story to tell. ARGs are first and foremost an interactive story that should be captivating, dynamic and inviting.
* Ensure that there is a clear match between the brand, the target audience and the notion of an interactive game.
* Plan, plan, and plan more. Begin by assessing how the ARG can facilitate accomplishment of the brand’s marketing goals. Then figure out the back story (the pregame narrative), the primary narrative, and the forward story. Perplex City (http://seasonone.perplexcitystories.com/story.html) offers a detailed overview of its architects' planning process.
* Reveal the story narrative over time using obscure clues and messages that will require player interaction to decipher the scenes.
* Include plot lines that are nonlinear and can be revealed sporadically. The development of the narrative must not be predictable and must not rely on a linear unfolding of events to make sense.
* Design a story that will enhance the sense of reality in the story. Players should not be reminded of the game but should be invited to make the game part of their reality.
* Utilize a variety of media, and carefully design game elements to leverage the characteristics of the delivery medium. Past ARGs have utilized code on T-shirts and posters, Web sites identified in video trailers, posts to blogs, e-mail, text messages and mass media advertising.
* Be prepared to change the direction of the narrative in response to player input and response to past clues and events.
* Commit to the ARG and its management. ARGs take time and continued involvement and management as the story unfolds.
* Consider an agency with ARG experience, including 42 Entertainment, Mind Candy and McKinney & Silver.
* Measure the effectiveness of the ARG based on the objectives for the promotional campaign, not just according to game participation.


As TIVO, iPods and the Internet continue squeezing traditional advertising methods, dark marketing strategies will become a bigger part of the mix.

And for marketers that get it right, this dark side promises plenty of sun.

Book Review: Advertising 2.0

It is rare that I find a non-fiction book that is hard to put down, but Advertising 2.0: Social Media Marketing in a Web 2.0 World by Tracy Tuten, is one of those books. Whether you work for a large company or have your own small business, whether you have a product, service, or web site you are trying to promote, this book is well worth reading.

This book goes into extensive detail about all the various ways to advertise using Web 2.0, with many, many examples. I thought I knew a lot about advertising, but I was unaware of such advertising content as cCGM, CFM, CGM, CGM2, and CSM, which the book covers in easy to understand language. The author also talks about how Friendvertising can be done on the social networking sites, not just the big ones, but the lesser known ones such as Dogster, Gather, and Xanga.

She even covers advertising in virtual worlds, social news media, consumer provided brand folklore, and even alternate reality games and social games.

If you are looking for concise and complete coverage of advertising in the 2.0 Web world, get the book Advertising 2.0: Social Media Marketing in a Web 2.0 World. I highly recommend it.

Guest Article: Fear

Video Lesson: Fear

"The only thing we have to fear is fear itself."
Thus spoke Franklin D. Roosevelt 75 years ago.

Looking back on Roosevelt's speech in 1933, 4 years after the infamous crash of '29, he was referring to the economic conditions of the time -- better known as The Great Depression. In essence he was saying that if we can't shake our pessimistic economic outlook, it will be tough to turn things around.

The question is... are things different this time?

http://www.ino.com/info/252/CD3111/
&dp=0&l=0&campaignid=3


The answer is yes and no. People are still fearful of what the future holds and they have very little confidence in the economy. The big difference between the crash of '08 and the crash of '29 is that we now have India and China on the world stage. Back in '29, both of these countries where not on the radar. In fact India was under British Rule.

Both India and China's economies will suffer with the turn down here in the US. They are now going to have to generate their own domestic consumption patterns for the goods and services they formally sold to the US. This is going to be hard to do as so much of their economy is based on exports which are evaporating quickly.

The fact of the matter is that the markets are extraordinarily turbulent. We do not expect, even with the worldwide bailout, for things will be rosy again anytime soon. However, that does not rule out some extraordinary trading opportunities in the markets. This is a time for rational thinking. It is also a time to eliminate fear from trading.

There is no need for fear in one's trading plan if you're running with a diversified program that has proven to be successful over time. What I mean by overtime is not just the last six months, or six years, but over a long period of time I mean as much as 30 years.

When you have a program that puts the odds on your side, you can trade with confidence knowing that you're going to lose some small skirmishes in the market, but overall you will make money based on your own trading decisions.

The MarketClub's "Trade Triangle" technology approach has proven successful in all types of markets, including the one's we are in now. I've put together a short 12 minute video to show you how we have fared in three different markets using this technology.

For a percentage of you, this video will be an eye-opening experience. There will also be some of you that are successful traders using your own system, and there is probably no need to watch this video.

Trading should be an unemotional experience. If you are trading for the excitement, odds are you're going to lose. If you are trading just to say that you trade, you're probably going to lose. If your trade for any other reason than to make money, you're probably going to lose.

The possibility of successfully trading any market is out there. This video will show you how our unemotional, time tested approach to the stock, future, forex, etf, and mutual fund market will put the odds in your favor that you are on the right side of these extraordinary trading times.

Book Review: The Power Broker by Stephen Frey

If you want to read a riveting novel with about seven plots and several sub-plots that is investment related, you should check out Stephen Frey's The Power Broker: A Novel. The book is about a manager of an extremely large equity fund, a bizarre secret organization of businessmen, an unexpected SEC investigation of a portfolio company, the Las Vegas mob, a new NFL franchise, and most interestingly, the Democratic nomination of an African American for president.

The book is copyrighted 2006, which means that it may have been written in 2005 and 2006, but definitely 2006 at the latest. Barack Obama didn't even announce his candidacy until February 10, 2007. Did Stephen Frey have a premonition? Anyway, The Power Broker is a great read.

You might also want to check out the review of one of Stephen Frey's other books, The Day Trader.

Guest Article: Is Gold Ready to Skyrocket?

Is gold ready to skyrocket?

Hi, this is Adam Hewison. I have just finished a new video on gold that I would like you to see. This new video deals with some of the strange events that we've been going through the past two or three weeks, or in some cases several months.

http://www.ino.com/info/251/CD3111/&dp=0&l=0&campaignid=3


I know most of the gold bugs have been disappointed that their favorite yellow metal hasn't skyrocketed to new highs. Some people said that we'd hit two to three thousand dollars an ounce when gold topped the one thousand mark a few months ago. I'm not sure that we will see levels like that, but the reality is, we could be seeing more interest come into this market which could push it higher.

In this short five minute video, you will get to see how well our "Trade Triangle" technology has done in the gold market. I will also show you when I think gold should hit its peak.

This is an educational video that is meant to inform you on the dynamics of the gold market and how it can help you improve your trading and timing in the future.
