Recapping the Fed minutes, Apple’s $2 trillion valuation, and gold’s continued volatility

August 19, 2020

Mike Larson joins me today to first comment on the Fed minutes that were released earlier today. The focus is on the concept of yield curve control which the minutes showed was discussed but is being put off. We then connect all the easy money policies to the market cap of Apple which just exceeded $2trillion. Finally I have Mike comment on the high volatility in gold.

    The danger with AAPL is that with a P/E ratio of 35,in any general market correction or an economic turn down, it will be hard to maintain earnings to support this historically high ratio.

      Aug 19, 2020 19:37 PM

      That’s right, if earnings collapse, the stock would become much more bubbly even if the price stayed the same.

        Aug 19, 2020 19:23 PM

        The volatility in gold is full on. Looks as though the Buffett news has already been digested and priced in. As long as we dont see a fresh downwave too far past last weeks low then this will just serve as solid consolidation. Albeit with abit of a wider trading range.

        Aug 19, 2020 19:34 PM

        Ding dong Rogers…No news review……

        Yeah…but did David become a gardener???

    2020-08-19 10:48 ET – News Release

    Mr. Daniel Kunz reports


    Prime Mining Corp. has released results from the company’s continuing surface sampling exploration program on the Los Reyes project, which continues to show outcropping surface mineralization consistent with the subsurface historic drilling results, this time from Noche Buena.

    Surface trench NB-4490N returned 42 metres at 1.93 grams per tonne gold and 25.7 g/t silver. Based on area mapping, trench NB-4490N has an 18 m estimated true width (etw). This trench included a nine m interval (four m etw) with 7.46 g/t Au and 98.1 g/t Ag.

    I’ve been listening to the DNC convention on radio, and for the most part just wanted to puke at the amount of open-faced outright lies.
    e.g. mlost recently they were taking about family values and the strength of Jill Biden,who will continue to teach, if Joe wins the Presidency.

    Yet Jill Biden is the person who stole Joe from his first wife and bust up that marriage.
    Then they talked about Trump inheritting a booming economy….all due to Obama-Biden. WHAT UTTER CRAP. The U.S. economy was in the toilet, because jobs had gone to China. Just continuous lies all the time so far.

    Aug 19, 2020 19:13 PM

    More peaceful BLM protestors…they ran out of people to attack so they went after a helpless racoon…

    Trump cannot indict anyone. Indictments can only issue from a Court Ordered Grand Jury that has jurisdiction over the matter, either at the Federal or State level.

    Aug 19, 2020 19:01 PM

    Which calls for patients. Looks like every Tom, Dick & Harry that has missed the JR rally so far, has another buying opportunity

            Jerry, small paul is one creepy little shit. He’ll go back two weeks to post something against you. He’s done it with me numerous times. He brings ZERO value to this site.

            Aug 22, 2020 22:50 AM

            No one said that on here. Jerry is making false accusations.

            Aug 22, 2020 22:25 AM
