Back Water Gold is a movie made in 1970 and relative to productions in the 2000’s looks it, however the message does not change. The premise of the movie is there is gold below the seas, particularly in the Caribbean Ocean. In the 1500’s Spain became the richest country in the world because of the gold and silver flowing from Mexico and Peru. The Spanish continually built larger ships to carry the gold and some sank in the seas. Not every day is a calm beautiful day in the Caribbean, sometimes storms come up and move the boats towards land where the coral ripped holes in the bottoms and ships sank.
One such ship was the focus of the movie – people had done research from journals to possible routes, to when storms came forth and what should happen. Everyone has a different theory and as it was 500 years plus, over the course of time the seas changed, coral forms and the land is a little different. If you went under water, it may be dark and ship wrecks not obvious to the divers. When a ship sank with gold because the value of gold has gone up the shipment is worth a great deal of money. This leads to good versus evil, those who want the money for themselves and those who wish to share the loot. In the movie, those who are on the evil side, kill people who get in their way or perspective partners. In the movies those that are on the good side eventually win. In most movies of the time, those that fit into a bathing suit are good looking.
Linking to dividend paying stocks, if you buy these stocks and hold them for a number of years, the money is deposited into your account on a regular basis. No need to fight good versus evil, no one has to die, but as time goes on you are wealthier.
There are more questions than answers, till the next time – to raising questions.
