Venture ALERT:  Ready To Conquer Last Year’s High


  1. Jon, what’s your thoughts on VVN? It’s been moving up on higher volume the last couple days. I think they are in the cobalt and lithium space also.

  2. Sameer, VVN may turn out to be a very good “speculation” with promoters getting hold of it but it’s not my cup of tea…the Cobalt Camp will separate the men from the boys, and VVN is one of the boys…the 25 million shares being issued for the property they’ve picked up should be a red flag to any investor IMHO…

  4. Note to readers – final technical issues are being addressed today related to last Friday’ server crash, so “look” of site is somewhat off at the moment but all content can be accessed. We appreciate your patience and understanding as we restore all site function and the proper look.

    Comments section is working fine. Just a few more tweaks and everything will be humming again!

  5. Oh! By the way (regarding the market averages), i failed to mention that “inflation” is a powerful force for driving stock prices higher. You may recall Zimbabwe was one of the best performing stock indices in the world not too long ago.

    Rising inflation in the states… seems to be a question of when, not if, so that could keep things going, at least on paper.
