But How Wrong I Was?

The IPLA also exempts foreigners from having to pay real property tax for up to two years if the land they purchased is undeveloped and the investor begins developing it during that two-year period. Historically, Australia has been seen as a very mining-friendly country, but a recent proposal to change tax rules in that country has sent some major ripples through the sector. One of the biggest risks that go along with investing in mining stocks is the risk that sovereign governments will change the rules midstream. As I have mentioned before, every investing decision only has a 60% chance of getting it right. I don’t really see much to blame Lexicon for, as the clinical data that have been presented have been pretty consistent (if not a little better than expected) and the launch of Xermelo has gone well. In the case of Lexicon Pharmaceuticals (NASDAQ:LXRX), a seemingly good initial launch of its first drug Xermelo is being greeted with little more than a “oh, that’s nice … what else ya got?” by the market.

If you’re thinking of putting your money in to something you will want to liquidate in the next five years, don’t choose antique silver unless you wish to speculate on the price of silver. The Credit Crunch has had many far reaching effects, but for most people with a little expendable cash, one thing holds true: putting your money in the bank yields little return.

Oil and gas that was considered technologically or economically off-limits only a decade or so ago is now routinely extracted (thing about the shale gas plays, horizontal drilling, and fraccing). As geologists get better tools for finding oil and producers get better tools for extracting it, a lot more oil and gas is going to be available than we currently might expect. Gorelick also talks a lot about the role of technology in oil and gas extraction. What’s more, with clinical data on sotagliflozin (“sota”) more or less in hand for the Type 1 indication and a long wait for Type 2 data and/or FDA action, there’s not a lot to really get the excitement going. Even so, with not a lot of mind-changing data on the way soon, it may take some patience to hang on through these doldrums.
