I sold my shares over a two day period and have reaped my largest ever gain on a share. My decision was based purely on my own circumstances and assessment and in no way was I 'manipulated' by the market. Obviously, I accept some people may have been, but i'm sorry to say, that's just the way things work - it's a brutal world. My decision may turn out to be a mistake, but the gain was so significant I simply couldn't risk it. I wish all of you the very best of luck with your holdings. This has been a very special and unique ride.
iceberg "now you've bought the shares" erm...I've held the share for a very long time and I'm a long way from being negative. If I was, I wouldn't hold - I'm not that stupid. It's simply a case that I happen not to share the view of a long term future as an independent company. If that makes me "negative", so be it.
Bamps, earthling is correct. SOLG will never remain independent. BHP have been constrained by an agreement not to act in a hostile manner - this agreement expires on October 15th. It's inconceivable they will not buy what is the largest copper discovery for years - and that doesn't even take into account the gold, silver and multiple other concessions. Not without its risks, but a great deal of value to be had if the predictions from brokers, corporate financiers and the industry are to be believed.
not possible the large recent purchases are in fact being undertaken on behalf of GDXJ and are being warehoused until next week? It has never made sense to me that any organization would announce in advance that they were going to be in the market for large numbers of shares on a particular day.
a reasonable seven figure holding here (not in Jerry's league) and have just tried a dummy sell. For the first ever, in any share I've owned, I was given a price for the full amount in a single transaction.
Let's hope so Max. Sometimes it's easy to forget the sheer scale of what we're sitting on and in truth, the company hasn't been very successful in getting the message out. I have no wish to re-ignite the SOLG vs GGP argument, but the comparison between the two companies in terms of market perception is simply vast. Unfairly so, in my opinion.
