5% Net Short Real Money Pro($)

Company notes that global shipments were much better than expected. Strong consumption and replenishment of distributor inventories, help raise demand to more than 61 million tonnes, a significant increase from the previous record. This year highlighted that demand can sometimes catch you surprise and it's important to be ready. Estimating what portion of that increases consumption growth versus inventory replenishment is unfortunately not a perfect sign. Company knows some distributor restocking took place. An important part of that was out of necessity given many buyers began the year with very low levels. But the company also believes that meaningful growth in underlying consumption occurred. For 2015, the co sees global Potash shipments more closely reflecting consumption of 58 million to 60 million tonnes. As the company looks into its specific markets, the co believes conditions remain supportive. Potash's North American order book is in good shape, it provides reasonable visibility to the spring season. Company is now shipping against our winter-fill commitments and are encouraged what it believes is good movement of product to the farm level.

POT, Gold and Yahoo! Real Money Pro($)

Gold down $17 today. I am a $121 buyer of more GLD. Yahoo! (YHOO) was a successful Kass Katch in 2014, making a quick $5 to $6/share. But because of my Ali Blah Blah trepidations, I would not try to bottom pick Yahoo! at current prices (even though it is $3.50 lower).
