Antal Fekete: Barrick's executives bail out ahead of shareholders


12:20a ET Thursday, September 20, 2007

Dear Friend of GATA and Gold:

Concluding his four-part series "Peak Gold," hard-money economist Antal Fekete notes that Barrick Gold's two top executives just sold a lot of shares in the company even as they were predicting a big decline in worldwide gold production and a corresponding rise in gold's price. Fekete says this is a repudiation of Barrick's hedging practices and shows that Barrick's crew is getting in the lifeboats before their passengers, the shareholders, do.
