    Just goes to show .. most people don't understand what they are investing in.

    Here is a clip from Canada's BNN (Business News Network)

    Watch it.. look at the valuation the analyst has regarding coper prices alone.

    Also.. the second stock he mentioned is a diamond play in Canada that is pulling up huge drill results from near the surface (PGD on the TSX)

    Another similar diamond play that hasn't bolted yet but has results from the same area in testing as of friday is DDN (Tsx Venture Exchange)

    I own all three. PGD ran from pennies to over $4 recently and DDN may do the same.

    Ivanhoe should be an easy double as a long term play.. but there may be some pull backs along the way.

    Take Care!
