Going Going Gold

May 4th, 2016 By Alfred Adask

Again, it's too early to say for sure, but it certainly looks as if the price of gold has hit a turning point that augurs well for rising prices for the balance of 2016.

Given Theranos' board, it isn't difficult to determine that securing contracts with the DoD has been a part of their business plan for some time. It's also not hard to see why military contracts are such a plum prize for a medical technology company with questionable products.
