    Just got a hot tip from a relative in the mining game. He rarely comes forth with them and his last one was a ripper.

    Anyone know anything about POL?

    obviously anyone who makes a decision on the basis of this post is an idiot and deserves to learn a lesson ...

    Yes - the question is how much.

    That chart shows pretty good growth interrupted by last few weeks turmoil. I guess the question is whether it will continue the earlier pattern.

    The tip first went to my Grandma when it was under 30c. I didn't get wind of it that time I am afraid. I did very well last time he recommended Portman to me but that was going back a few years. I told another close relative who immediately bought $150K worth and proceeded to double it based on his respect for my uncle's opinion. I nearly died when he told me what he had done, I was a small player then and was quite pleased to turn $10K nto $15K :rolleyes:

    I am not usually one for hot tips but this is different - to me. To you guys it is a tip from a stranger and worthless :cool:

    Have fun today.

    of course. Part of which is seeing if you characters here know anything or have any opinions!

    The stock has risen from 25c. in May to 74c. recently therefore a 200% rise. I think your tipster is a bit late in his recommendation! :(

    Investors are fleeing to blue chips aren't they? The herd may not go after speccies for a while.

    so until they are ripping minerals out of the ground, can I safely lablel this one as "speculative"

    But are you investing or gambling?

    Yes you can safely say this is speccy and buy hoping for quick growth.

    But even BHP was this large once. If you like the story you may feel this is worthing keeping. But I don't know much about it hence the question.
