GSS is the only precious metals stock I have left, and it was a nightmare to find out today that it had earning yesterday and was down over 14% and today the drop continued. Look at GDX, the precious metals ETF. It’s going up just fine without me, while I take nearly $1000 loss on GSS today in my trading account (I have more in my IRA account.) Tell me I have incredible amount of bad luck. How the heck do I shake it off?!
In general, it is safer to go with ETF than individual stock, with the exception if you’re going short.
