Don’t tell me what’s manipulated, tell me what’s not.



Jeff Legan

Hi Larry, (Clean)Water. But I believe it is next in line for manipulation. We only treat 20% of our wastewater in the world (around 80% in America). The rest is dumped back into the environment untreated. A penny stock I am invested in has plans to mimic the way people invested in the oil and gas industry (MLPs, or Master Limited Partnerships). It has never been done for treating water. Unfortunately for me, I cannot get into that investment directly (you need to be accredited, I am not), I had to buy their common stock (the best deals are always… Read more »



You got me on that one – I have no clue


I’ve been invested for decades in a little Water Company you might have heard of.

ABEV Chart is looking interesting at the moment


It’s the real thing. 😉

Hi Senza, I looked it up on Yahoo Finance. It is interesting. It reminds me of a penny stock I purchased in 1996 called CIFRA. It was the largest department store in Mexico at the time. The Merrill Lynch guy told me it was $10/share last year, it was around $1/share now. I told him I wanted to buy that one! He was not expecting that. I worked for a department store previously, that is why we were talking about department stores. I had this idea that the Mexico consumer was 20 years behind us. Just like department store shares… Read more »


Your overly suspicious Jeff, I made 2 separate statements: 1. I owned KO for decades. 2. I was running a “beverage” screener on FINVIZ and noticed that ABEV had an interesting chart, price and as you stated a dividend as well. I have no investment in ABEV Honestly, I’m surprised to find any stock interesting in these markets. Your correct we do have some things in common – when I was learning stocks I loved to bottom feed and buy penny stocks – I even learned to trade by day trading penny stocks and sub penny stocks. That’s also how… Read more »

I was just asking for an explanation. As I mentioned, I noticed the discrepancy. I want to know if I can trust what you say so I needed to hear your explanation. I am a straightforward person , so when I have a question, I ask it. Thanks!


SENZA and Larry,

The American Eagle 2022 One Ounce Silver Uncirculated (Burnished) Coin West Point (W), to be released June 1st, has a listed product limit = 160,000 and currently data-available is 119,100. Here we go again because the Mint previously announced the product inventory for this coin sold out through Enrollment Program ordering (and it originally had a product limit = 175,000). So who knows what the final mintage/sales figure will end up being. Likewise, look at how the 2022-W American Proof Silver Eagle mintage changed from original product limit = 300,000 to final sales/mintage = 673,987.


Thanks Rich,

Your data is priceless – I’m a collector and 160,000 just isn’t collectible product.

The hunt for scarcity continues

Accelerated sales of silver bullion makes perfect sense, in my opinion. The economy is very topsy-turvy and people want a hard asset that isn’t overwhelmingly expensive. That makes silver bullion the perfect option.


Silver bullion is a thoughtful gift idea for the holiday season. If you have someone who is hard to buy for, consider gold bullion as a gift that will TRULY be a special surprise.
