(#331: Wed 10/28/2015 6:12 PM EDT)
Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton looks unbeatable for the Democratic nomination. Running against a GOP candidate espousing the end of Medicare and Medicaid, putting a large number of troops back in Iraq, deporting 11 million people and taking insurance away from millions much less reducing Social Security benefits will deliver a Goldwater sized defeat in next year.

"Experienced investors know to look for opportunities where the selling is overdone, and the asset is misunderstood,"
A Golden Age
Financial Advisor Magazine
“We’re only about 25% of the way through this bull market,” says James DiGeorgia, publisher of the Web site Gold and Energy Advisor (www.goldandenergyadvisor.com), based in Boca Raton, Fla.
DiGeorgia cautions, however, that when interest rates rise or gold breaks through $3,000 an ounce, it’ll be time to reconsider. “You can’t just buy it and stash it away and forget about it,” he says. “On a quarterly basis, take a fresh look at where things are.”

Los Angeles Times
March 7, 2011
Reports of intensified fighting in Libya propelled oil past $118 a barrel in Europe and to nearly $107 in the U.S., the highest levels since September 2008, with concern growing that the disruption in Libya's crude-oil production could last longer than initially expected.

Reporting from Los Angeles and Washington——
and tsunami that slammed northern
knocked out car plants and steel mills, stranded thousands in offices and at Disney's resort in Tokyo, and pummeled financial markets in Asia and Europe. But the biggest effect on the world economy may yet come in further roiling oil prices that already have cast a pall on the global recovery. That's because the 8.9-magnitude temblor forced the shutdown of a number of Japan's oil refining facilities as well as some of its nuclear power plants. The loss of substantial refining capacity in the world's third-largest economy is likely to inject more volatility into gasoline prices — raising the risk of even higher pump prices for American motorists….
Gold and silver gain acceptance as portfolio components
March 25, 2011
(Source: Pittsburgh Post-Gazette) By Tim Grant, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
March 25--Gold prices keep setting new record highs -- they did so again Thursday at $1,447 an ounce -- and
are becoming cautious about investing in precious metals that have been gaining value for more than a decade.
But despite an 11-year winning streak for both gold and silver, advocates make the case that the limited supplies of metals vs. the almost unlimited supply of traditional currency make them worthwhile investments despite the lofty prices....

The popular if often altered saying is from William Shakespeare’s “The Merchant of Venice”. “Gilded tombs do worms enfold,” Shakespeare warned. These days silver prices are whizzing upward even faster than gold, which makes the commodity seem like an investment no-brainer….

Commodities fall, gold rises to record on credit-downgrade anxiety
August 9, 2011
Investors on Monday largely ignored the fundamentals of various commodities and instead focused on the downgrade of U.S. credit as a reason for sending oil and grain prices down while pushing up the price of gold.
