A Look at Arnold Schneider's Large Homebuilder Positions as Positive Housing Market Data Emerges
In November, pending home sales increased 7.3 percent from October and 5.9 percent from November 2010, their highest level in 19 months, according to the National Association of Realtors. Lawrence Yun, NAR chief economist, said, “November is doing reasonably well in comparison with the past year. The sustained rise in contract activity suggests that closed existing-home sales, which are the important final economic impact figures, should continue to improve in the months ahead.” U.S. foreclosures also decreased 14% from last November. The positive news is slightly dampened by other data showing that home prices were down 3.4 percent for the year as of October. Read more...

Golden Star Continues to Lose Ground
At the end of 2013 I wrote about Golden Star Resources Ltd. (GSS)’s troublesome future and gave several reasons for my bearish stance towards the stock. A small market, high geopolitical risk in some of the countries the firm operates, along with overexpansion in times of fluctuating gold prices gave tune to the massive shedding of shares by investment gurus. Five months have past since I last considered Golden Star’s potential, and everything indicates the situation has not changed. More...

Gurus Cut Losses and Shed Their Holdings of Golden Star Resources
Mining for gold might seem like a lucrative business, yet the industry also entails a large portion of risk, especially for small-tier miners such as Golden Star Resources Ltd. (GSS). The fluctuating price of the commodity, along with the geopolitical risks involved in mining in African nations such as Ghana, are just two of the obstacles the firm is facing. In addition, as one of the smallest gold mining firms in the industry, with a market cap of just $122 million, Golden Star has had a very difficult time financing its latest expansion projects. With share prices tumbling towards all-time lows, gurus such as Steven Cohen, Chuck Royce and Arnold Schneider have already sold out their positions in the troubled firm. More...
