Every why hath a wherefore

The top three most visited IKN posts this week are…

…in reverse order:
Third Place: “Barrick / Randgold and a Mark Bristow quote. It was The Randick Week on the blog and while just four posts were directly related to the merger (three others semi-connected), three of those take the gold, silver and bronze position this weekend. This one got hits because what with last weekend’s scoop, mainstream media decided to pay attention to the blog for a nanosecond and quote bits and pieces, this one and its “probably the start of M&A action rather than an isolated incident” got picked up.

Second Place: “Some more photos of Randick* (ABX) CEO Mark Bristow with animals he has killed. And yes, a CEO’s private life activities are fair game when they are abhorrent as this. Be clear that from now on, by owning shares in Barrick you give a tacit pass to a big game hunter who shoots wild animals for fun.

First Place: M&A in Tier One and Tier Two precious metals miners: The two most obvious targets“. This one was also picked up and distributed by several large circulation media channels, which is why it made the number one spot I suppose. My two cents on my two choices, feel free to come up with better ideas.
