    My Mentee yesterday wanted to buy two "blue chip" stocks yesterday.  I suggested that she do them as paper trades.  So I will assemble a paper portfolio here - using this morning's prices.

    Here are her two ideas, plus one of my own (AGI).

    BLUE Portfolio
    PortB. :  # shs : price : PValue:   Pct.
    CASH : ——— : ——— : P1,060 :   1.1%
    AGI    :   5,500 : P6.00: 33,000 : 33.0%
    AC.    :        45 : 732.0 : 32,940 : 32.9%
    SMC. :      330 : 100.0: 33,000 : 33.0%
    Total: Starting: Last: P100,000: 7/15, about 11am

    I am going to update this BLUE CHIP Paper Portfolio, to see if it outperformed the PSEI index

    BLUE Portfolio
    PortB. :  # shs : 07/15: value :   Pct.  :  09/25 :  value : % chg.
    CASH : ——— : ——— : P1,060 :   1.1%:   -- -- -- : P1,060 :
    AGI    :   5,500 : P6.00: 33,000 : 33.0%: P7.06: 38,830: +17.7% - DrB’s pick
    AC.    :        45 : 732.0 : 32,940 : 32.9%: 692.5: 31,163: - 5.40%
    SMC. :      330 : 100.0: 33,000 : 33.0%: P98.5: 32,505: - 1.50%
    ==========> : 7/15: 100,000: ====>: 9/25: 102,499: +2.50%, thnx to AGI
    = PSEI Index> : 7/15:    6,017 : ====>: 9/25 :   5,839  : - 2.96%

    Only AGI was up.  That was DrBubb's suggestion.

    It is hard to beat the market averages.  In this case by buying an undervalue stock when it was oversold, it was possible for the paper portfolio to beat the index by 5.5%


  2. HOW MANY WARRANTS? = 17.71 Million @ C$2.75

    + CGC Shares: 2,222,222 special warrants sold at an issue price of $2.25 (1.11Mn wts)

    2,222,222 new shares + 1,111,111 new warrants, with strike price at $2.75. Expiry: until July 29, 2025. Caldas Gold may accelerate the expiry date of the Warrants after July 29, 2023 in the event that the closing price of the Common Shares on the TSX Venture Exchange (or such other exchange on which the Common Shares may principally trade at such time) is greater than CA$2.75 per share for a period of 20 consecutive trading days

    + CGC Gold-linked Debs: $83.1 Million with 200 wts (at C$2.75 strike) per $1,000 Face / (so US$83.1 Million = 16.6Mn wts

    (footnote on CL's hldg.: 30k + 300k x200= 60k : 90k x$3= C$270k)

  3. Will CGC BREAKOUT?  Or slide...

    Now that the placement shares sold at $2.25 -wts, start trading?

    Q4 2020 revenue was $92.9 million compared with $108.8 million in the same prior year quarter. The decrease was primarily driven by declines at Wildbrain Spark, resulting from changes in "Made for Kids" content policy made by YouTube and the negative advertising impacts of COVID-19, as well as Consumer Products-Owned revenue, which were also impacted by COVID-19. These declines were partially offset by higher Production revenue. Fiscal 2020 revenue was down 3% to $425.6 million vs $439.8 million in Fiscal 2019, primarily due to decreases at Wildbrain Spark and in our Consumer Products-Owned business.


    Globe says Wildbrain seen to have "turned the corner"

    2020-09-25 08:30 ET - In the News

    The Globe and Mail reports in its Friday, Sept. 25, edition that RBC Dominion Securities analyst Drew McReynolds says Wildbrain's fourth quarter results brought "a turning point on visibility." The Globe's David Leeder writes in the Eye On Equities column that Mr. McReynolds removed the "speculative risk" qualifier from his "sector perform" rating. He reiterated his $1.50 share target, which exceeds the $1.18 consensus. Mr. McReynolds says in a note: "We believe the company has turned the corner on a period plagued by execution challenges, a sooner-than-expected shift in content demand and a levered balance sheet following major content investment and M&A. We continue to have greater confidence in execution under the new management team and see the potential for upside in the shares in a successful turnaround and de-levering scenario. While we remain patient for more attractive and/or timely entry points balancing the lagged impacts of growth initiatives with ongoing COVID-19 headwinds and still high leverage, we are encouraged by the progress to-date." Elsewhere, CIBC World Markets analyst Robert Bek upgraded Wildbrain to "neutral" from "underperformer" with a $1.25 share target.

  8. Gran Colombia Gold to spin out Zancudo project to ESV

    2020-09-24 17:10 ET - News Release

    Zancudo comprises a historical silver-gold mine (the Independencia mine) located in the Middle Cauca gold belt. Gran Colombia acquired Zancudo in 2010 and completed a 14,000-metre drilling program carried out in 2011 and 2012.

    + ESV will issue 27 million common shares to Gran Colombia
    + 6.67 Million shares: at a price of 45 cents per subscription receipt. Gran Colombia intends to subscribe for $3-million of the concurrent financing.
    = 33.67 Million x0.45= $15.15m

    ESV chart : soon to be: Denarius Silver


    Mr. Mike Davies of Gran Colombia reports


    Gran Colombia Gold Corp. has entered into a letter of intent dated effective Sept. 23, 2020, with ESV Resources Ltd. to spin out its interest in the Zancudo project to ESV. Gran Colombia will also subscribe for $3-million of subscription receipts in a non-brokered private placement being completed concurrently by ESV as described further herein.

    Serafino Iacono, executive chairman of Gran Colombia, commenting on the news, stated: "In light of the bullish outlook for silver, we see the acquisition of an investment in ESV as a tremendous opportunity to participate in a new vehicle that is turning its attention to becoming a silver-focused company looking to offer its shareholders exposure and leverage to the precious metal. We also see the spinout of our interest in the Zancudo project as an opportunity to create value for our shareholders in this undervalued silver-gold asset. We will be providing in-country operational expertise to ESV to advance their projects in Colombia, including an exploration program planned for the Guia Antigua project following completion of the transactions and financing by ESV."


    Project spinout

    The Zancudo project consists of a 1,052-hectare mining concession area located in the Titiribi mining district in Antioquia, Colombia, about 27 kilometres southwest of Medellin. Zancudo comprises a historical silver-gold mine (the Independencia mine) located in the Middle Cauca gold belt. Gran Colombia acquired Zancudo in 2010 and completed a 14,000-metre drilling program carried out in 2011 and 2012.

    In March 2017, Gran Colombia signed an option agreement with Iamgold Corp. for the exploration and potential purchase of an interest by Iamgold in Zancudo. Under the agreement, Iamgold was granted an option to acquire an initial undivided 65-per-cent interest in Zancudo by incurring an aggregate of $10-million (U.S.) of mineral exploration expenditures over a six-year period, subject to meeting specified annual work commitments during this period. From 2017 through 2019, Iamgold has completed a total of approximately 16,224 metres of drilling at Zancudo and has incurred over $4-million (U.S.) of its exploration commitment. However, due to COVID-19, Iamgold has suspended its drilling program thus far in 2020. Iamgold was also granted an additional option to acquire a further 5-per-cent undivided interest, for an aggregate 70-per-cent undivided interest in Zancudo, by completing a feasibility study within three years after exercising the first option. Upon exercise of the first option or the second option, as the case may be, the parties will form a joint venture to hold Zancudo, to advance the exploration and, if feasible, to advance the development and mining of any commercially exploitable orebody.

    Under the terms of the spin out transaction, ESV will issue 27 million common shares to Gran Colombia in exchange for its interest in the Zancudo project. In addition to any escrow restrictions imposed by the policies of the TSX Venture Exchange, all common shares issued to Gran Colombia will be subject to a voluntary pooling arrangement from which one-quarter of the shares will be released on each of Dec. 28, 2020, March 27, 2021, June 27, 2021, and Sept. 27, 2021. ESV has also agreed to be bound by the terms of the option agreement with Iamgold.

    ESV private placement

    ESV has announced that it has also signed a letter of intent with 1255269 B.C. Ltd., a company not related to Gran Colombia or any insiders of Gran Colombia, to concurrently acquire all of the outstanding share capital of the Guia Antigua vendor. The Guia Antigua vendor owns the Guia Antigua project, which encompasses the exploration, development and mining rights to a 386-hectare area located in the eastern part of Gran Colombia's Segovia mining title focused on the high-grade silver-gold Guia Antigua vein, which falls outside the areas associated with Gran Colombia's mining operations and exploration activities.

    As a condition to completing the acquisitions of both the Zancudo and Guia Antigua projects, ESV has announced that it intends to complete a non-brokered private placement financing to raise up to $7-million through the issuance of up to 15,555,000 subscription receipts of the Guia Antigua vendor at a price of 45 cents per subscription receipt. Gran Colombia intends to subscribe for $3-million of the concurrent financing.

  11. If this story is fully true, the slimming down of POGOs will be a huge deal for the PHL Property Market

    Chart >> EROSION is showing


    (from viber chat):

    "PRICE EROSION:  Maybe the "POGO EXODUS" story is fully true. Property stocks are beginning to show erosion. 

    MEG slid back under P3.00, down 2.7% to P2.91"

    Pogo exodus seen to empty more than a tenth of Metro Manila offices, condo units

    Joey Bondoc, senior manager of property advisory firm Colliers Research, told the Inquirer on Wednesday that “in case all Pogos leave, we will see a double-digit office vacancy in Metro Manila.”

    “As of the second quarter of 2020, Pogos covered an estimated 11 percent of total leasable office space in Metro Manila, or about 1.34 million square meters,” Bondoc said. “In the second quarter, office vacancy in Metro Manila stood at 5 percent. Hence, if all Pogos leave, we will see a 16-percent office vacancy—leased space by Pogos plus vacancy as of the second quarter,” he said.

    Bondoc said the last time that Metro Manila suffered double-digit vacancy in office space was when the Asian financial crisis left 12 percent of offices vacant in 1999 while their lease rates dropped by 16 percent.

    ”We are seeing the impact of slower Pogo absorption on lease rates,” Bondoc said.

    . . .

    He said as a result of “dampened demand for condominiums,” his company expects developers to be “more aggressive in offering bigger discounts and offer more flexible payment terms for pre-selling residential projects.” Discounts could range from 10 to 15 percent of total contract price.

    “In the secondary market, which covers completed units, Colliers is projecting average prices to soften by 13.8 percent in 2020,” Bondoc said.

    For Bondoc, “business districts that mainly cater to Pogo firms are likely to feel the pinch for the remainder of 2020.”

    The idea of trading MCD/ McDonalds against JFC/ Jollibee came to me last week, and when I looked into it, I found there is presently a great set-up, so I jumped in to my first trade last night, starting with the Short side in MCD puts

    MCD / McDonalds Corp*... 10d : JFC-10d : MCD: $214.90, JFC: P138.10, 64.3% MCD

    Then MCD slid with market, closing at $214.97.
    The MCD puts closed at 8.30-8.60= 8.45 Mid.
    (Puts are already up 43%, while I was sleeping)
    Nicely in profit. Will aim sell half at $12 if poss.
    And keep the other half as a “free” hedge,

  14. DO YOU TRUST in those Trusts?

    Ron does ! Or so he says : Here


    Ron, what do you think of this comment?:
    "I think we should all face the probability that a Magical RV is not coming.
    Sure, there may be some shifts in currency values, like the drop in the Pound we saw after Brexit. But I do not think there is going to be a big currency change which will suddenly put money in everyone's pockets. Where would that money come from? If we shook down the Rothschild family and distributed their $1 trillion or whatever among the 7 billion on the planet - that's only $143 per person. It would take a long time to sell off their assets, and then distribute it. Is this amount spread over 5 years, that's $28.57 per year, going to solve your problems. I don't think so."



    You have no idea how much wealth there is in various trusts, like the St. Germaine Trust for example. There is sufficient wealth to make everyone a millionaire, including the children. The earth is not over populated, it is simply poorly managed. If we were all empowered with true knowledge, everything could change quickly.

  15. "Jason: On a practical level, the private currency exchanges have been delayed due to hackers hacking into banks and changing codes that are needed to release the funds. This not just cabal, this is a battle going on at the Dragon Family level...."


    Haha. that's hilarious!
    Anyone who has ever worked for a bank, will know how silly this sounds.

    Bizarrely, they seem to keep using this limp excuse when there are RV "delays"


    "Energy vibration" in the money?

    That's even more ridiculous - this whole thing vibrates with personal greed, and nothing else

  16. O'Keefe gets his chance to defend himself and all I see is Max was right all along.....screaming and yelling to subvert the questions doesn't make O'Keefe right, only proves his guilt. Start at the 15:00 minute mark, I'm disgusted with this government shill :angry:


    Ken O'Keefe Responds To The Claims His World Citizen Contract Is A Pyramid Scheme.


    I listened, and posted this comment:


    Ken is his own worse enemy here. He jumped in with an aggressive tone, and accused RA of being a "shoddy journalist" That's not smart; since Richie's audience would be expected to be on the host's side, and not wanted him attacked. I think Richie started off somewhat negative, but was trying to be neutral, and if KOK has not been so aggressive, this might have gone much better. What Ken seems to have on his side was some evidence that he did not buy land with the money and protected the funds. Why did KOK not steer there? It is curious

  17. Well done to Cleve!


    Ron simply will not accept the rather truthful and gentle criticism he gets from Acore


    Would he prefer to deal with THIS GUY's less gentle remarks, as he

    calls Ron "a 400-year old man acting like a 13-year old"


    paradoxman316 is really pissed off at God - and dammit, he wants answers!



    youngster Omni-Eros sees through him easily: "you're just upset because you do not have a big share of the wealth"

    "Stop pretending to be a humanitarian, because you are not!"


    Meantime, your friend here (FriarN) seems to have acquired a strenuous critic in Merlin.

    Here is a part of the discussion (with her?) from RVD's channel:


    photo.jpg merlinhadninelives

    I have been inundated with the Friar making comments to me about Ron. The Friar defends himself on his Acore forum, not exactly an inability to defend himself on a public forum. Yes, Friar said to me in a comment that many of you attempted to help Ron financially when he was strapped in Austrailia and Friar says Ron spit in your faces.... his terms not mine.

    I have experience with people who have had strokes and serious medical conditions. I see nothing positive about attempting to have Ron carry the cross of the Friars accusations, nor bear the attempts to nail him to it (stop Ron in Friars words), just to have those empathetic to Rons physical challenges and heart surgery recovery not notice it as an attack upon a weakened (flesh and blood) body. In fact, Ron isn't even fully recovered and I am amazed he survived the heart surgery, the eviction from his house and stroke.... just to have the Friar endlessly accuse him is: predatory.

    Be logical for a moment and get away from the pots and kettles mind-bait. Friar is blocked here. He sends me many messages and I respond clearly. It is the Friar instigating, so it is rather interesting that you make Friar sound as the victim of a kitchen where he's the chef, chooses his ingredients, does all the cooking and serves up whatever he dishes out about Ron.


    photo.jpg Friar Newborg
    Weird. Merlin, you ignore so many things that Ron has done: lied, stolen from banks, been negligent in paying takes, taken expensive medical care and NOT PAID for it. You are full of compassion for this wrong doer?. But you have none for me, who is merely guilty of seeking the truth. I find this to be very strange. Are you simply ignoring Ron's transgressions, or are you prepared to actively defend them? I am sure you would be welcome to do so on Acore. But I am not allowed to defend myself from accusations on the public forum here. That is simply unfair. In the corrupted way you handle things, you remind me of FBI Director Comey. Do you think Ron is above the law, and above basic principles of fairness?

    photo.jpg merlinhadninelives

    Friar, I do not bite for mind-bait. I remind you of the FBI Director? Thank you, I handle things in a corrupt way? Flattery is fickle. Are you a knight in shining armor or what? You are so generous in defamatory misinterpretations of those who pray for Ron, that if you stepped in it you’d slip and fall… and then, somehow, you’d blame it on him.

    Do I think Ron is “Above the law? No. He answered any and all bank charges against him, appeared in courts for years on end. He was arrested for no driver’s license and jailed… he was evicted and lost his only home. Do you call that above the law? Have you become lost in your own maze of accusations against him?

    “Seeking the truth” differs from avenging the conclusions you project. Ignoring Ron’s prolonged illness, stroke and severe heart surgery while placing stress upon him deliberately by stating that he is a liar, fraud, delusional or a promoter of scams, is no different than continually hitting him where he is already wounded with the intent to do harm. I find your motives to go far beyond truth seeking... and into a vigilante mode.

    Now that you mischaracterize me, I see your heart knows not why the Son healed many nor why His workers, seek not transgression and faults in others but wellness and the grace to allow them the space to align with harmony, peace and truth for have we not all transgressed? Lest one error be magnified as us vs them, forgetting the grace of forgiveness.


    photo.jpg Friar Newborg

    My final word on this here follows: You have chosen the wrong "victim" to defend. (Using his illness as an excuse, you did not see through? Really?) Ron does not defend himself well, because what he has done is indefensible. His arguments quickly fall apart, and he has nothing to do but delete comments and ban people. You are still here, because you have fallen for his lies. But you are part of a fast-shrinking tribe, Good luck to trying to live happily in a has-been's delusionary dream. And don't forget to switch off the lights when you eventually move on,

  18. RON's SAD CYCLE of Hope and Depression, The Stages defined


    From under today's Video:

    9-2-16 – GOD IS ENERGY … AND MORE!


    May I comment? Define Troll, and then I shall answer if I am one.
    If it is someone who disagrees, and sometimes dislikes what Ron says, then I am one of many:
    18, and now #19 on this thread.
    But guess what, I rarely vote Like or Dislike at all these days, and then maybe 1/3 of the time that I do vote, it is thumbs up.

    To be accurate, I would like to see Ron move on to something more positive, rather than criticizing God when he is not getting what he wants.


    But maybe Ron is too old to change, and we will just see him running through his same Old Cycle of:

    + finding something new that is too good to be true,

    + swallowing the Hopium, promoting it beyond its reality (without doing any research),

    + banning those who warn him it is a scam, and then

    + watching it come crashing down. And then at the last stage,

    + he will blame God, rather than himself, for any failure.


    Is there anything more to learn from RVD? Probably not. That leaves me as one of those who just come here for some odd entertainment, rather than possible enlightenment. Meantime, Acore seems ready to move on to more interesting Dramas than Ron's sad cycle of Hope followed by depression.







    Aug 29, 2016

    I can not believe those people spent that much time and effort to debunk Ron wow crazy man.

    What the puck is wrong with these people? Are they mentally insane? You have criminals running USA country, killing people ,starting wars, destroying entire countries,and you are on Ron.s case over a stupid 250 k holy shit ...
    Why the puck don't you people get on the bloody criminal banker's shit?
    Ten's of thousands of people get ripped off buy the criminal government every bloody day,and these people spend over a year discussing Ron's shit?
    I do not know what the hell to say?
    tell these people to go after real criminals that steal from everyone every bloody day.
    Just try to carry cash in your car and drive through a check stop , see what the hell happens to your money.



    Friar Newborg

    It is all about learning Discernment. After some months of watching Ron and the lies and delusions, people sharpen up. But I think most of the 40,000+ views on that thread on from people now moving on, RVD has become very boring, and soon we will abandon him, and his views will drop further

  19. Who dislikes Ron's videos?


    When I woke up and signed on, I saw this:

    58 views / 4-likes, 13-dislikes

    But not to worry. Ron says: "Over half of those dislikes are from one person" - I think he means the Friar



    Here is the absolute Truth, which I would swear on the Bible, or a stack of Bibles.


    ONLY 1 of those Dislikes came from me, and that includes Friar Newborg, and all the other names I use.

    Please, someone give this message to Ron: The Friar says his is not trying to push the dislikes up on your videos.

    If you get a stack of dislikes, it must really mean that a large number of listeners are not liking that particular video.

    Please accept the Truth on this and stop demonizing me. You should accept the reality of how your message is being received.


    Here's an old message, with other sentences blaming "the Hong Kong group" for negative things, that are untrue




    Hey, Ron, it's time you manned-up, and accepted some reality, painful as it may be for you.

  20. IT CONTINUES.... As I try to STOP RON (from lying)


    (Merlin, picked up my comment, and reposted it in the public part of RVD's Youtube channel):

    I received this message from Friar Newborg 7:08 AM Look, I am no fool. But apparently Ron is. If you or anyone with a working brain, was told by a bank that they would forgive your debts, if you allowed them to sell an asset, would you get that IN WRITING? Of course you would. So would anyone. But RVD says he did not, I don't believe him....We cannot easily see through all of the crimes and lies of Hillary. But we can see through those of Ron, and maybe we can stop him, even if we cannot stop Hillary.
    Well, how do you intend to ‘stop Ron’? Finally, you admit your motive.


    (I responded as follows):


    Friar Newborg

    Will you post this response too? (The above is somewhat out of context.) Before you read my response, consider that RVD has said hateful things about me, and Acore. Do you think he has a right to get angry, and I do not? Here's my response:

    I want to STOP RON from lying and misleading his audience. And I want to stop Hillary from running for president. I will probably stop neither one. But with Ron, I have some chance... by getting the Truth in front of people. I imagine that the many others who post on Acore have a similar motivation.


    ... RVD's whining continues too


    8-30-16 – GOD IS LOVE! REALLY?


    Published on Aug 29, 2016

    Probably the first Bible verse I ever memorized was John 3:16 – For God so loved the world... Until they stole my non-mortgaged home in February of this year, I believed it. Since then, I'm not so sure. With the loss of my home I questioned many things, except for one thing. I still believe in God as a personal being. If God is not personal, then personhood is not real. In that case, life has no meaning, at least for me. There are days I just wish I could go away and forget ever having existed. Earth, though it could be wonderful, is a hell-hole run by demons who think nothing of violating the prime directive: Do not violate the free will of another. Would love allow this gross violation? If so, it's not very loving. I do not consent to living in this demon-infested world. I want the loving world promised.


    He tried to steal a loan from the bank, and when the bank stopped him, he lost faith in God's Love??

    Frankly, I think he has lost his memory (about what really happened), or his sanity

  21. IS Ron like Hillary?


    (Am I crazy in making this comparison? ... from a Youtube exchange with Merlin):



    +Friar Newborg Hello Friar. You say Ron calls you liars and your group calls him a liar. Your group relies upon documents, but were not there when the bank promised Ron certain things nor were you there when Dr. Mary was mislead. ...Nor can you resurrect the, dead banker who lied to them both.

    Your perspectives are on papers, mine are on Dr. Mary feeling she made a mistake with the bank, then passing before she could correct her error which is what Ron inherited...
    Friar Newborg
    Hmm. I cannot say what Dr Mary's actions were. But we know from the legal documents that RVD borrowed $256,000 from the bank, secured by her home and that Ron gave his address as the same place. He has told us that he used that money to buy the House in Melbourne FL, and the could not repay the loan. Later the bank foreclosed on the house and got $220k for it, Ron tells us. How much of that money when to reducing RVD's debt, we do not know. But the bank went on chasing Ron for unpaid debts. Eventually they got court approval to attach their lien to the Melbourne house.
    +Friar Newborg No, you can't say what Dr. Mary's actions were, nor can you say what the bank assured Ron of one-on-one. Nor does the bank look on solid ground taking ten years to finally evict Ron... they waited until he had heart surgery and the 'gap' they needed to go through with things as he immerged from the hospital broke and 'online' appeared vulnerable. Timing is interesting isn't it. Which is exactly why I do not judge Ron and think it would be appropriate for you Ron bashers to back off and call it a day.
    Friar Newborg
    Look, I am no fool. But apparently Ron is. If you or anyone with a working brain, was told by a bank that they would forgive your debts, if you allowed them to sell an asset, would you get that IN WRITING? Of course you would. So would anyone. But RVD says he did not, I don't believe him. We have caught him in so many lies, why believe anything from him?. For me, he is no more honest than Hillary Clinton. And based on the fraud I see in his signed mortgage document (he said he owned the property free and clear - he did not), Ron belongs in jail too. I will not give him a Free Pass for being ill, anymore than I will give one to Hillary. RVD loves to play the victim, accusing banks and those who disagree with him (like Acore) of all sorts of things. Again he reminds me of Hillary. We cannot easily see through all of the crimes and lies of Hillary. But we can see through those of Ron, and maybe we can stop him, even if we cannot stop Hillary.
