In his From the Horse’s Mouth (http://www.stockhouse.ca/blogs.asp?page=viewblog&blogid=245) blog, 3cpxbro reports about company meetings and investment conferences. The Victoria Resource Corp (TSX: V.VIT) General Meeting (http://www.stockhouse.ca/shfn/article.asp?edtID=20060) was covered in great detail.

Reporter Robert Arber noted that the Minera Andes (TSX: T.MAI) BullBoard was returning to fine form, thanks to a fresh batch of contributions from chartmaker (http://www.stockhouse.ca/shfn/article.asp?edtID=20056) gabrielgray (http://www.stockhouse.ca/bullboards/userview.asp?usernumber=1301018).

For a discussion unclouded by acrimony (http://www.stockhouse.ca/shfn/article.asp?edtID=20070), Reporter Arber suggested looking at the Vero Energy (TSX: T.VRO) BullBoard.

StockHouse staff listed the Top Five (http://www.stockhouse.ca/shfn/article.asp?edtID=20065) posters, Boards and articles for the week.

What’s the next big development for Canadian oil sands operators? At least one poster is suggesting that Canadian Oil Sands Trust (TSX: T.COS.UN) could be snapped up (http://www.stockhouse.ca/shfn/article.asp?edtID=20067) by a buyer, but others on the BullBoard played down that buzz, according to reporter Sean Mason.

Danny Deadlock updated regular readers of his Microcap Monday column about three favourite stocks. Among them, the microcap speculator said that his oil and gas services (http://www.stockhouse.ca/shfn/article.asp?edtID=20050) company pick, High Arctic Energy Services (TSX: T.HWO), could see significant gains in the next six to twelve months, because it had survived the broader market sell-off without testing new lows.

Microcap Spotlight featured an interview with the Lakota Resources (TSX: V.LAK) chief executive, who spoke about the company’s prospects at its East African properties (http://www.stockhouse.ca/shfn/article.asp?edtID=20053).

Precious metals got multiple mentions on StockHouse this week. Steven Saville noted that gold’s recent strength (http://www.stockhouse.ca/shfn/article.asp?edtID=20058) has occurred in partnership with reduced liquidity in the markets.

An approval for a new AIDS drug (http://www.stockhouse.ca/shfn/article.asp?edtID=20063) is great news, but will not have a significant impact upon shares of Pfizer (NYSE: PFE), said Leon Hamerling & J. Paul in their weekly column.

After a long dormant season for the initial public offerings market (http://www.stockhouse.ca/shfn/article.asp?edtID=20066), things are finally heating up, wrote Jon Ogg.

While traditional energy shares have been on fire of late, Greg Silberman noted that prices for uranium companies have backed up sufficiently to be worth a second look (http://www.stockhouse.ca/shfn/article.asp?edtID=20068).

There are three stages of a bull market in resource stocks, wrote Doug Casey. The key to future profits is choosing well managed, well financed companies with mineral properties in the right areas at a time when the markets are still climbing a wall of worry (http://www.stockhouse.ca/shfn/article.asp?edtID=20072).

In this month’s Global Speculator, Troy Schwensen wrote that precious metals shares are most likely to appreciate in the near term. (http://www.stockhouse.ca/shfn/editorial.asp?edtID=20074)

Confidence is fine for most folks, noted John J. De Goey, but stock pickers suffer from a crisis in over-confidence, (http://www.stockhouse.ca/shfn/editorial.asp?edtID=20073) which is not bourn out by the research.
