first_imgFrench service provider Free has been voted best ISP in a customer satisfaction survey of the country’s operators, coming out ahead of rivals including Orange, SFR, Numericable and Bouygues Telecom.Free won a 94.5% satisfaction rating, ahead of Orange with 87.4%, SFR with 86.9%, Numericable with 85.7% and Bouygues Telecom with 80.5%. Free won approval for its launch of mobile services in competition with established players as well as for its installation of consumer equipment and services. Cable operator Numericable was highly rated for its TV and internet services but lost points for poor online assistance. However, all customers that churned from their existing service providers, with the partial exception of Orange customers, were extremely dissatisfied with the way the process was handled.The monthly magazine 60 Millions de Consommateurs surveyed the views of 5,000 internet subscribers for the survey.last_img read more

We have closely monitored the adoption of a wide range of OTT services with specific interest in games consoles and have been impressed by the amount of content now consumed this way,” said All3Media’s SVP of digital and business development, international, Gary Woolf.“Our primary digital business continues to be licensing programmes to international broadcasters and major video on demand partners. What is exciting for us is that his service allows us to offer a wide range of great quality content that doesn’t fit the needs of those services directly to new audiences developing direct consumer relationships and enhancing opportunities for our content to be discovered.”All3media service will be showcased on the Easel TV stand at IBC, on stand 4.C88.last_img read more

first_imgDuring 2014 roughly 750 TV series and TV films were in different stages of production for Russian TV, up 18% compared to 2013, according to Moscow-based KVG Research.The research firm said more than half of these productions were broadcast on Russian TV last year, while the country’s three leading content producers – Channel One, Russia 1 and NTV – produced 60% of the titles.However, KVG Research said that “niche channels” also started to intensively produce TV series and films, creating 30% more content last year than in 2013.Overall, 62.5% of Russian production was for TV series and 37.5% for TV films, with melodrama the most popular genre for series and detective titles the most popular for films.The figures follow recent changes to Russian media legislation that bans advertising on pay TV channels that don’t broadcast a content mix that is at least 75% locally produced.Under the new law, programming that is 50% funded by Russian entities or individuals will qualify towards the 75% quota.last_img read more

Gold Stocks Move in Extreme Cycles You can make

0 Comment

first_img Gold Stocks Move in Extreme Cycles You can make a fortune in the gold market. But you must understand market cycles. Gold stocks move in extreme boom and bust cycles, more so than most other markets. Contrast that with “noncyclical” businesses, like those that sell toothpaste or laundry detergent. Demand for these types of everyday items is steady whether we are in a bull or bear market. Demand for natural resources like gold is highly cyclical. Just like with oil, investors pour money into gold miners during boom times. A gold stock might soar 500% over a three- to five-year raging bull market. Then collapse 90% in six months in a nasty bear market. Similar to what we’ve seen over the past five years. From late 2011 to late 2015, gold fell 42%. It was a nasty bear market, sending companies out of business and delivering huge losses for investors. While the fall in the price of gold was drastic, the fall in gold mining stocks was even worse. Over that same period, the NYSE Arca Gold BUGS Index—the gold mining stock index—fell 83%. So as you can see in the following chart, gold mining stocks (shown in blue below) fell at twice the rate of gold (shown in black). Dickinson Mines $6.88 $27.50 299.7% Newmont Mining Corp. (NEM) 141% Hecla Mining $5.12 $53.00 935.2% Giant Yellowknife Mines $11.13 $39.00 250.4% AVERAGE 322.5% Green Light… Just a few months ago, the US National Institute of Health approved a proposal for the first human trial of a brand new medical breakthrough… A Nobel Prize-winning biologist called this new breakthrough “a real game changer.” The MIT Technology Review described it as, “the biggest biotech discovery of the century.” Now the tiny company that invented this medical miracle is expected to go public (IPO) this Tuesday, October 18… Click here to learn more. —   Returns of Producers from 1979 to 1980 – In the chart below, we charted the major cycles for gold stocks from 1975, when gold again became legal to own in the U.S., to the present. Eight distinct cycles played out during this time. Dome Mines $78.25 $154.00 96.8% Company Price on 12/29/1978 Sept. 1980 Peak Return Recommended Links Newmont Mining $21.50 $60.62 182.0%center_img Campbell Lake Mines $28.25 $94.75 235.4% Agnico Eagle Mines Ltd. (AEM) 103% Yamana Gold Inc. (AUY) 215% Homestake Mining $30.00 $107.50 258.3% Editor’s note: Today we have a special gold essay to share from Casey Report editor E.B. Tucker. As E.B. explains, gold stocks move in extreme cycles…and they’re currently preparing for the next boom. And this boom may be the biggest we’ve seen in our lifetimes… By E.B. Tucker, editor, The Casey Report You can make 5x, 10x, or even 27x more money in gold stocks than in gold bullion. And the best part is that you don’t have to buy options, use debt, or perform any complicated trading strategies either. And it only involves a little more risk than buying gold bullion. But the potential upside is massive… Gold stocks aren’t much different than any other type of stock. They just happen to be shares of companies that produce gold. These companies mine the ore that contains the metal and sell it to refineries. The process is similar to oil or any other natural resource in the ground. The reason why gold stocks perform better than gold is simple: They offer leverage to the gold price. That’s why the returns can be spectacular. The word “leverage” usually means borrowing. That’s not the case at all in the gold market. If you aren’t familiar with the concept of leverage in gold stocks, here’s a quick example of how powerful it can be: Say the price of gold rises from $1,300 to $1,400. That’s roughly an 8% gain. If you own physical gold, you’re up 8%. Now, say a mining company owns a million ounces of gold in the ground, and gold is trading at $1,300. The value of the gold in the ground isn’t simply $1.3 billion (1 million ounces x $1,300/oz.). Instead, the gold in the ground is worth much less than that, because it will cost a lot of money to extract. Say it costs the company $1,250 per ounce, all-in, to mine the gold. At a gold price of $1,300, the company has a potential profit of $50 on each ounce of gold. However, if the price of gold rises only 8% to $1,400, the company’s profits per ounce increase by 200% ($1,400 – $1,250 = $150 profit per ounce). This small move in gold can cause the stock price to increase 40%, 50%, or more. This is why a small increase in the price of gold can cause a gold stock to soar many times that amount. It’s happened before… A History of Gold Market Booms Below are the historical returns for gold producers during four separate cycles when gold boomed: 1979–1980, 1981–1983, mid-1990s, and 2001–2006. These are not hypothetical returns. They are real. First up, the king of all gold bull markets: 1979–1980… Gold more than tripled during this period. But gold stocks more than quadrupled. Company Gain Barrick Gold Corp. (ABX) 138% However, that’s only the average. Some companies fell even more. Now the gold market is changing course. As we mentioned above, gold prices are 26% higher this year. The Market Vectors Gold Miners ETF (GDX), which tracks the performance of all the major gold producers, is up 115% from its January low. But certain gold miner stocks are up even more. The table below shows how much several big gold miners are up over this year. As you can see, Barrick Gold Corp. (ABX) is up 139% since January 19. Meanwhile, Yamana Gold Inc. (AUY) is up 215%. China hoarding gold in advance of secret December 31 action? Dear Reader, It’s no secret China is stockpiling gold at a head-spinning pace. But few know why. Or just how much gold China is sitting on. The answer will shock you. Click here to see. Randgold Resources Ltd. (GOLD) 65% This wasn’t the only time gold stocks soared… From 1981 to 1983, gold producers returned over 70% on average. And this happened in less than two years. Companies like Agnico Eagle and Campbell Red Lake climbed over 120%. And Sigma shot up 73%. These profits stemmed from a mere 10.8% rise in gold. There was another boom in the 1990s. The average gold producer went up more than 200%… Cambior rose 124%. Kinross Gold returned more than 190%. And Manhattan skyrocketed over 760%. All while gold only rose 8%. Then another big boom hit from 2001–2006. This one rivaled the boom of the early 1980s. Gold returned 158%, while the average gold producer gained over 400%. Newmont shot up 270%. Gold Fields soared over 500%. And Goldcorp returned over 800%. As you can see, an increase in the price of gold (even a small one) can lead to huge returns. Gold 214.0% Gold stocks have been in the second-deepest bear market since 1975. It’s even worse than the selloff following the 1980 mania. In other words, this is an incredible opportunity. Gold stocks are preparing for the next boom. But you don’t just want to buy any gold stock… It’s important to pick the best gold stocks. Because not all gold stocks perform the same in a cycle. Like in any other industry, the stocks of stronger companies will go up more than those of the weaker ones. And there is a small area of the gold market where gold stocks can go “vertical.” It’s here where investors can make 10x, 20x, or even 50x their money. Regards, E.B. Tucker Editor’s note: Right now, there’s an urgent gold catalyst you’re not hearing about from the financial media—and it’s creating an extraordinary one-time opportunity for investors who get in before an estimated $3 TRILLION flows into one tiny sector of the gold market. In short, you’ll want to circle December 31 on your calendar now. Never before have we seen so much money poised to disrupt the gold market…virtually overnight. You can learn all about this catalyst—and how to access the secret gold trade that could return 27x your money—by watching this brand-new video.last_img read more
