…in reverse order:
Third Place: “Do not feed the animals (from IKN351)“. This was the rant against the scamfest of “optionality” that was the intro into last week’s edition of The IKN Weekly, an out-dated idea now being pumped at you from people with large mouths and large bags who are mentally stuck in the last cycle and don’t realize that a soufflé doesn’t rise twice.
Second Place: “Three more things about IKN’s Tahoe Resources (THO.to) (TAHO) / Lake Shore Gold (LSG.to) (LSG) deal talks exclusive“, which although containing its own information was no more and no less than the follow-up post to the week’s main event on the blog…
First Place: “Tahoe Resources (TAHO) (THO.to) in late stage talks to buy Lake Shore Gold (LSG.to) (LSG)“. No surprises. This post on TAHO Thursday evening may turn out to be the year’s most viewed post, not just the week’s, going full viral, moved the market (a 14% arb between the two stocks is a very solid reaction), caused a trading halt in LSG and exactly the sort of denial-that-isn’t-a-denial from the company in its subsequent NR (which nobody believed, because on re-start of trading LSG went higher not lower) that we anticipated. All that because of the simple fact that it’s a genuine scoop with 100% factual information.
