i'm not a gold bug, but long-term i do believe in gold. Barrick or goldcorp are mainstays in many portfolios, imho.
there was recent insider buying in barrick. Regent is a good ceo imho. Stock may currently be hurt by bad publicity over africa barrick.
ABX is an absolutely perfect candidate for selling out-of-the-money call options. I recently rolled over july 50s into a mix of january 50s & 55s.
my cost base in barrick is CAD 35.32. I will be rolling this up slightly - normally i try to keep cost base no more than 15% lower than market, because of the options - so i will be buying 2-3 more lots when prices seem on the low side, then selling the same within a short time frame as prices rise a bit. However i'm not inspired to do this today. What would trigger the manoeuvre is a thumping downward crack in gold - actually a sharp rise in USD - but i don't see this any time soon.
