Apple and Google Declare War – Here's the Secret Winner

Resident tech guru Michael Robinson and I are both big science-fiction fans. Michael likes traditional sci-fi stories, like those of Robert Heinlein and Isaac Asimov. My sci-fi interests are more focused on “Golden Age” radio dramas, “pre-code” comics, and old movies and TV shows… like The Twilight Zone and The Outer Limits.

And when Associate Editor Cris Skokna joined our team a few months back, Michael and I were so pleased to discover that he was a sci-fi guy as well that I jokingly dubbed the three of us as “The Trilogy.”

And the other day, Cris told me a story that I absolutely had to share with you…

  • Newmont Mining (NYSE: NEM) Stock Will Shine Again The Future of Gold Prices

    Owning some gold has long been a part of the Money Morning investing philosophy. After all, gold offers some insurance against the dollar-debasing policies of the U.S. Federal Reserve.

    One of the easiest ways to acquire the yellow metal is to buy a gold mining stock such as Newmont Mining Corp. (NYSE: NEM).

    At first glance, investing in any gold mining stock looks like a lousy idea. Over the past year, nearly all gold mining stocks have plummeted along with the gold prices - but much further.

  • Gold Prices Down This Week, But Big Money Stays Invested

  • Gold's Shocking New "Pick and Shovel" Play Ever since humans realized the intrinsic value of gold, we've constantly searched for - and perfected - ways to find more. From early methods like panning and trenching, to lode prospectors hunting for rock outcrops and veins, to the invention of drill bits... In modern times, we use increasingly sophisticated tools and techniques, such as seismic sensors, magnetometry, and gravimetrics to help locate potential gold deposits. But, after thousands of years of digging for gold, the low-hanging fruit's already been picked. Most remaining deposits are becoming increasingly difficult to find, and increasingly low grade. Now, a surprising, brand-new gold prospecting tool may be in the offing - one that's far less technologically demanding, and much less invasive. It seems nature itself has found a way to extract gold from the ground. Take a look at this picture...

  • How to Prepare for the 17% "Supertax" “You never let a serious crisis go to waste… It’s an opportunity to do things you could not do before.” –Rahm Emanuel The once unthinkable is quickly becoming probable. At some point in the next few years, your assets could well become the target of a “Supertax” as high as 17%. Last week, we talked about the need to buy “out of print” assets to protect our wealth from brazen government seizures. I explained that quantitative easing (QE) was likely to get bigger, not smaller, and that you needed to become your own central bank. The truth is, the writing’s already on the wall. We’ve seen it happen. Cyprus’s “bail-in” cost numerous bank depositors more than 47% of their capital. Poland’s “pension reform” saw private pensions raided to help lower the government’s debt-to-GDP ratio. And Spain plundered its Social Security Reserve Fund to keep buying its own risky debt, when no one else would. Dangerous precedents are being set, with chilling regularity. More than ever, you need to be prepared… Read More...
  • "Democratize" Gold and Give the Government a Black Eye We all know that, so long as the Fed keeps the printing presses on, the risk of a worldwide currency crisis gets even higher. Gold, of course, is the timeless hedge here - for all the reasons you and I know. But are we truly prepared for a currency crisis? Much of the gold in the United States is owned by big institutions: the Treasury, the Federal Reserve, and bullion banks. So, if a currency crisis hits, their 8,900-ton hoard won't do us a bit of good. But there is one country whose "democratic" approach to gold ownership will allow its people to survive a currency crisis, literally, in fine style. Not only that, but this country's people are giving their government a whopping black eye for its heavy-handed ways in the process. Here's what's going on there...

Here’s what’s been dragging gold down...
  • Time to Buy These "Out of Print" Assets From the Editor: We've been tracking this threat for years, ever since Keith Fitz-Gerald brought it to your attention back in January 2010. Today, Resources Specialist Peter Krauth weighs in on some recent developments in this story, because three of the commodities he covers can protect you. The Fed can't print these things... Here's Peter:
    Central banks may have foolish policies, but central bankers are no dummies.
    They know exactly what they're doing. They even comprehend a few of the implications, too.
    Which is why it's interesting that some American central bankers have suggested doing away with the debt ceiling altogether.
    Famed investor Marc Faber recently said, "The question is not tapering. The question is at what point will they increase the asset purchases to say $150 [billion], $200 [billion], a trillion dollars a month."
    Faber expects the Fed's current QE4 to become "QE4-ever."
    That could mean years of money printing and ultra-low rates.
    Even bond king Bill Gross recently chimed in his latest monthly outlook that "The United States (and global economy) may have to get used to financially repressive - and therefore low policy rates - for decades to come."
    Either way, don't depend on the Fed to save you. You can save yourself
