Daily Market Wrap – Wed 6 Jul, 2016

Chris, Doc and LPG recap the markets

No, folks, we didn’t forget about the Fed Minutes…they were a “nothing” and don’t change the fact that the Fed is frozen. Beyond that, we discuss today’s turnaround for stocks and oil. . .and Europe’s banking mess.

      Hello Franky,

      Hope all’s well.
      I think you are writing here/following up based on my last comment to you… Am I correct ?

      In my last comment to you (monday last week), I didn’t write “You worry too much Franky”… but I wrote:
      “When it comes to precious metals you worry too much FOR ME Franky.”
      (the quote is from this interview: http://www.kereport.com/2016/06/27/big-al-doc-lpg-opine-brexit-time/ ).

      These words from me were in response to your advice to me: “Buy same real gold Man baed think’s are coming !”

      So what I meant by “you worry too much FOR ME” is that you don’t need to worry about me buying real gold, coz I’m good on that front.

      Hope I am clear now, and apologies if I didn’t express myself clearly in the first place.

    Angela Merkel is in a catch 22 dilemma, but it does not matter in the long term, because she is out of a job next year.
    She will try to do the minimum necessary so that failing banks do not bring down DeuscheBank until after the German elections, but she cannot appear to allow Germans to bail out the EU to stop disintegration, because she still has hope for the election next year (false hope, IMHO)
    Germans do admire resolve and strength shown by their leaders, however.

    Dear Mr. T.
    Thank you for some very interesting editorials.
    I read an interesting theory regarding the S&P and DJ.
    These indexes contains more stock-buy-back than any other index in the world. And therefore they do not behave like other indexes… And here comes the interesting part: An important reason for the companies to buy back stocks is that it a way to bring back profits to the US from abroad, with out paying tax.
    If possible, I’d like to hear your opinion on this argument.
    Best Regards.

      Temple says:

      Andreas — very good point. It’s been well chronicled that big buy backs in the recent past have boosted per-share earnings, etc., even if gross company-wide earnings have stagnated. And it’s why the stock market — even the Dow and S&P — have slowed down, with the level of buy backs having started to decline. There’s just not enough organic, legit earnings growth on its own to push stocks higher.

      As for the tax angle, not sure about that. . .

    Hi Doc,
    Youve stated many times that this would be a big U shape recovery in gold. That doesnt appear to be playing out.

    • On July 6, 2016 at 5:58 pm,
      RICHARD (DOC) says:

      Doc Fan, you’re totally correct—-I do know one thing, this will be a long second leg up. The move higher as far as gold and the PMs is still more grinding up then 2009.

      • On July 6, 2016 at 6:02 pm,
        RICHARD (DOC) says:

        I might add that if we correct here for a couple of months we’re still in somewhat of a U-shape. However, it looks more and more this move may continue slowly up–we’ll see.

      There are number of positive Gold stories now flowing on the main-stream media. It is interesting that after years of bashing Gold & Silver, that the investing universe is watching the metals again.

      Look at some of the articles on Bloomberg:

        Of course, not every talking head on the main stream media is so bullish. George Gero is brought in to make the bullish case half way through the video. It is a real treat whenever George makes it onto the KER.

    My Calico shares are halted at present, but I was expecting something to happen on July 7th based on their press releases that today was the day of the merger.

    MATTHEW – Thanks so much for posting that article a few weeks back from Jayant Bhandari, where he pointed out the arbitrage between the share price in Calico and the share price in Paramount Gold.

    Because of reading that post, I acquired my shares in Callico at $.086 and they closed yesterday at $.1293 (which I believe was still undervalued since the calculation for the conversion is .07 X PZG {2.12} = $.1484 current value. Sometimes a stock will trade at a discount to the conversion ratio, but Jayant was spot on a few weeks back about the arbitrage. This was a no brainer easy 50%+ gain in 2 weeks and I posted on this a few times thus far. I hope others were also able to capitalize on this lay-up of a trade.

      While I’m doling out Thank You’s to KER contributors, I wanted to thank BRIAN again for his post about a month ago on Sabina Gold & Silver (SBB.TO) (SGSVF) on the day when they ran into the permitting snag.

      I had been waiting and waiting for a good entry into that stock, and I knew investors would over-react to that news. I mentioned this a few times on here on KER that this would be a nice snap-back trade. I picked up shares a few times in the $.89-$.83 range and trimmed most of them back yesterday in the $1.10-$1.12 zone. Now I’ve got a cost basis at $.67 on a small core position and can enjoy the ride, and weather any pullbacks. Brian – thanks again man!

      Update to post above. Now the Calico shares would be valued at (PZG @ 2.57 x .07 = $.1799). Gadzooks!!

        Excelsior says:

        Sorry the quote kept changing when I was posting that. PZG went from 2.54 to 2.57 so that post came out weird.

        Let’s just use the $2.55 that PZG is currently trading at (multiplied by the .07 conversion rate) = $.1785 per Calico share. They closed yesterday at $.1293, but are on hold today, because I believe they are going to convert over to PZG shares today or tomorrow? If anyone else has any shares of Calico that already converted in your trading platforms as a confirmation please let me know.
