Some fun statistics for those who invest using relative value.

  1. Every 3 cent move in Intel (INTC:US) is greater than the entire market cap of Miramar Mining (MNG:US)

  2. Every 1.5 cent move in GE (GE:US) is greater than the entire market cap of Nevsun (NSU:US)

  3. Every 5 cent move in Microsoft (MSFT:US) is greater than the entire market cap of Cambior (CBJ:US)

  4. Every 25 cent move in Procter and Gamble (PG:US) is greater than the entire market cap of Eldorado Gold (EGO:US)

  5. Every 16 cent move in Exxon Mobil (XOM:US) is greater than the entire market cap of Agnico Eagle (AEM:US)

  6. Every 35 cent move in Pfizer (PFE:US) is greater than the entire market cap of Goldcorp (GG:US)

  7. Every $4.00 move in Google (GOOG:US) is worth more than the entire market cap of Pan American Silver (PAA:T)

  8. Every $0.75 cent move in Coke (KO:US) is worth more than the entire market cap of Kinross Gold (KGC:US)

  9. Every $0.10 cent move in Cisco (CSCO:US) is worth more than the entire market cap of Crystallex (KRY:T)

  10. Every $0.16 cent move in Dell (DELL:US) is worth more than the entire market cap of Golden Star (GSS:US).

I wonder if I started up a hedge fund that shorted the 10 most overvalued stocks like on this list and bought the 10 gold stocks listed how I would do?

Buy all the gold you can carry.
