I say things on Twitter


The top three most visited IKN posts this week are... reverse order:

Lots of posts got plenty of hits this week. In fact after checking, the 5th placed this week would have been #1 last week. Anyway, to the list. " reverse order":
Third Place: "McEwen Mining (MUX) and the magic of accountancy". Man, did I ever get feedback on this one!  1) No, I am not passing judgment on MUX, its stock price, its future or whatever else. 2) Yes, I do "have a freaking clue" about company accounts, thanks for asking. 3) Yes, I know what MUX did to get that result. If you cannot handle that the post is 100% factually correct, it is not my problem. If you think that your paragon god of mining Rob McEwen is too honest, upstanding and truthful to use every trick in the book in order to avoid paying corporate taxes, you really should not be investing in this sector at all.

Second Place: "As usual, Rick Rule is 100% correct". Why a post that states the obvious should become popular is beyond me.

First Place: "Plateau Energy (PLU.v): Real journalism 1, Business journalism 0". I think it fair to say that...

...investors in PLU.v do not read much in Spanish. Which begs the question as to how they do their independent DD into a company with a flagship asset in Peru. Surely they don't just take the management, IR department and hired gun anal ysts at their word....? Nah, surely not!
