Article Submission Guidelines
Silver Stock Report
by Jason Hommel, September 8, 2007
I have a support staff of one, who handles credit card billing. I also have the help of my brother, who has updated the look of the site. My brother, who supports free market principles, is also running for Congress in the 4th district of California. See terbocongress.org Also, Iíve hired a programmer, and a writer, and a few others to help.
Iíve been reluctant to hire an editor and a staff of writers, however, because I wanted to avoid overhead costs. But also, it seems that it would be difficult to find quality writers who know enough about all the free market principles that Iíve presented over the years, and who understand what is going on in the gold market and current world markets, and who also know enough to write up the many good exploration companies that could use some coverage.
Then I realized that the typical way that most media is created might not be fully aligned with free market principles. I think I could provide better quality reports if I allowed anyone to submit an article, according to the guideline in 1 Cor 14:31.
This isnít about me. Principles and ideals are more important. I should not restrict the delivery of good content to you, my readers, but rather, encourage it.
The big difficulty I had was to discover the free market standards to apply. And so, here they are:
Benefits to you for submitting an article:
You need not share our views on all topics, but you if you want to write against one or some of our views, we are less likely to publish your article. And if we do, we reserve the right to refute what you are saying, in the nature of a good discussion.
Biblical Capitalism is our free market ideology.
The nature of the Articles we publish are often forward-looking. "What may the future hold?" Or, "How can we positively affect the future?"
So, here are our Biblical views on Future events:
1. We believe the best end time view is the Pre Tribulation
Rapture; that Jesus will take his faithful believers to heaven for 7 years
before returning with them.
Our Political positions (Biblical Capitalism):
1. Cannot be anti- immigration. (We favor free and
unrestricted movement of people.)
Our View on precious metals (Biblical Capitalism):
1. Precious metals are a long term buy and hold; we never call
tops for metals prices.
Specific Investing guidelines (given current market conditions):
1. We do not favor oil investments. We do not believe in
Peak Oil, nor Global Warming.
Form guidelines (what I've found that works best):
1. No hard vocabulary words. (say "smart" not "intelligent");
define unusual or industry terms.
Style guidelines (what I've found that works best):
1. Must be useful, practical, profitable information for the
Terms and Conditions (what I've found that works best, and is fitting
with the precepts above):
To write up a stock, it would help you the most, and you are most likely to have the most success convincing people, if you follow the following format, presenting the information in this order:
1. Company name & Ticker symbols.
What is the company story?
For early explorers:
1. What are they exploring for, and what is the reason or indications for expectation for success? Near what mines, what historic production, what work done so far?
2. If beginning drill results are known, what is the length, and grade? And what is size of the area that they hope to find minerals where they are exploring?
For mid stage explorers:
1. If known, what are the resources in the ground: total ounces of silver/gold, and/or pounds of zinc, copper, etc. and grades. If possible, what are the expected production costs? Many of these things are only known after extensive drilling and feasibility studies.
2. If known, what are the expected annual production estimates? How many ounces/pounds produced each year, and at what cost?
What are other reasons why you feel the company will be a success, and yet, explains why the share price is too cheap for the company fundamentals? For example, is the company new? Is it a recent acquisition? Poor marketing? Overlooked metal?
If you write up one of my stocks you MUST include the following two
pieces of SEC required disclosures:
