Where Was Gold One Year Ago?

January 30, 2018 By: Dudley Pierce Baker Founder – Editor http://CommonStockWarrants.com http://JuniorMiningNews.com Where Was Gold One Year Ago? January 30, 2018 One year ago I wrote this piece below and it is an interesting perspective on where we are today and where we were one year ago. I did update the articles below for current content but I did leave the one article, Turbo Charge Your Stock Profits With Stock Warrants, which is an interview that I did with Kerry Lutz of Financial Survival Network. Today, gold closed at $1339, versus, $1194 so it has been a good year for gold. “January 30, 2017 Current Markets I still see the possibility of gold heading back down to the $1168 to $1180 area but as I write we are up 6.20 to $1194. I’ll admit this would not be much of a decline, but I am hoping to get some orders executed which are placed just below the market. We see the likely scenario that gold, silver and shares/warrants continue higher. so you need to be rapping up your buying soon. I see many promotional pieces for other newsletter services touting a small (unnamed) oil and gas company and an (unnamed) gold company. I can read between the lines and actually know the names of these companies and more importantly that those two companies have long-term stock warrants trading with over 4 years of remaining life. These newsletter writers do not tell you about the warrants and perhaps they do not even … Continue reading

Investors keep flocking to gold, push metal to three-month high

February 9, 2017 Cecilia Jamasmie (Image: Shutterstock.) Gold prices climbed Wednesday for a fifth-straight session as geopolitical uncertainty ahead of European elections pushed the metal to its highest price in about three months. Holdings in the SPDR Gold Shares ETF rose 8.3 tonnes to 827 tonnes as of Tuesday, the highest since Dec. 20.Bullion was last up at $1,242.20 an ounce, after hitting $1,245.40 earlier in the day. This means that, so far this year, the precious metal has gained more than 8%. In contrast, the ICE U.S. Dollar Index has lost about 1.9% even though it traded slightly higher on Wednesday. Meanwhile, holdings in the SPDR Gold Shares ETF rose 8.3 tonnes to 827 tonnes as of Tuesday, the highest since Dec. 20, according to data compiled by Bloomberg. Investors remain worried about the potential implications of a French presidential election that remains too close to call. Far-right candidate Marine Le Pen is gaining momentum by vowing to take France out of the euro zone and hold a referendum on European Union membership if she wins. At the same time, US President Donald Trump’s political agenda and his team’s comments on the undervaluation of certain currencies keep rocking markets. … Continue reading

Q&A: Legendary executive Rob McEwen talks about gold mining in golden times

DERRICK PENNER More from Derrick Penner Published on: August 4, 2016 | Last Updated: Rob McEwen, self-described chief owner of McEwen Mining Inc. VANCOUVER SUN Legendary mining executive Rob McEwen knows a thing or two about gold-mining companies, having built Goldcorp Inc. into a powerhouse producer before stepping down as chairman and CEO in 2005. Now, he’s working on building up his next venture, McEwen Mining Inc., with mines in Mexico and Argentina just as gold has hit a rebound. The Vancouver Sun caught up with him at the recent Sprott Natural Resources Symposium to talk about his views on where the rally is going: Q: With your firm, you take the title chief owner. Why is it important for you to spell that out? A: I think it’s very important that people running companies have skin in the game, they have something at risk. They don’t just get a big salary with lots of options and have no investment in the company. It makes you focus on what’s the most important thing a company should be doing, that is building the value for every other share owner of that company. Q: The price of gold is up 25 per cent from its trough, the S&P/TSX Gold Index has bounced back more than 100 per cent, many people have read a lot about the uncertainties out there that are driving this. What’s your view on what got us here? A: There are a number of factors. One, the expansion of money supply by countries … Continue reading

Add Some Stock Warrants To Your Portfolio

March 17, 2016 By Dudley Pierce Baker Editor and Founder http:CommonStockWarrants.com Folks, the resource sector is preparing to blast off, again. You will want to be on board as there will be many companies and stock warrants having spectacular gains of 500% to 1000% and more. Don’t forget that you do not want a portfolio loaded down to nothing but stock warrants. I would suggest having a maximum of 5% to 10% of the value of one’s portfolio in stock warrants, possibility slightly more if you are extremely bullish as am I. These stock warrants will be on companies which you like and which have great assets and management and at least 2 years of remaining life before expiring. There are enough interesting stock warrants trading and in our databases which should have you drooling to get started, but  don’t wait too long as I believe we are heading to $1400 gold very soon. If you have received a coupon code from me in the last few months this would be the time to use it. Alternatively, you can use the coupon code of gold and receive 50% off of either my Silver or Gold Subscription, monthly or annual. If you are interested in my Lifetime Subscription, please contact me at support@commonstockwarrants.com and put Lifetime Subscription in the subject line. Look forward to having you join me soon, Dudley Pierce Baker http://CommonStockWarrants.com  … Continue reading

European Investor Olivier Tielens: In a Sideways Gold Market, Explorers Offer the Most Upside

The Gold Report: After flirting with $1,300 per ounce ($1,300/oz) in January, gold has fallen to around $1,200/oz. What happened? Olivier Tielens: Deflationary forces are still leading the game. There’s a 50% chance that we may go to a new low, very probably the final bottom, and a 50% chance gold will trade throughout 2015 in a tight range. TGR: A few years ago, gold rose tremendously after the U.S. Federal Reserve began quantitative easing (QE). Since then, further rounds of QE from the Fed and, more recently, massive QE from Japan and the European Union have not buoyed the price of gold. Why not? OT: QE is not working. Europe is in a depression. The velocity of money continues to decrease and is now lower than for decades. People are hoarding cash, and that’s deflationary. Zero and even negative interest rates continue, and that could help gold because even though gold doesn’t pay interest, at least bullion owners aren’t losing money by holding it. Inflation will arrive after confidence in the central banks fades. Investors will then want out of the U.S. dollar and into gold. When will that happen? Nobody knows, but it always comes like a thief in the night. Or we could have another black swan event, but this is less likely than in 2008 because the powers that be have learned from that, and there is now so much liquidity in the system. TGR: QE and zero interest rates are not helping gold, but they … Continue reading

Where is the Smart Money Going in Mining? Lawrence Roulston's Answer May Surprise You

The Mining Report: When we last spoke in June 2014, you said that gold at $1,250 per ounce ($1,250/oz) was a reasonable baseline price going forward. Do you still believe that? Lawrence Roulston: Yes. Actually, the fact that gold has remained at this level while the U.S. dollar has become so strong is very significant. My preference is to pay less attention to the gold price per se and more attention to specific gold and silver companies that are good investments in their own right. This means companies with smart management teams that are expanding resources, advancing projects toward production, increasing production or doing other things that add value. As the gold price eventually moves higher, such companies will realize bonuses on top of what should already be an attractive return. “Asanko Gold Inc. is on the list of likely M&As in 2015.“ TMR: In the last two years, two independent phenomena have occurred simultaneously: companies have greatly reduced costs, and, as you mentioned, pretty much all currencies have lost value against the U.S. dollar. Taken together, how much has this improved the condition of miners outside the U.S.? LR: In particular, Canadian and Australian miners have benefitted greatly: a 20% boost on the revenue line, which has led to an even larger boost of operating margins. As a result, many companies that were struggling two years ago are now much healthier. TMR: We hear often that it is difficult to impossible for mining companies to raise financing in the … Continue reading

The Resource Maven Tells Investors How to Take Advantage of a Rising Happiness Index

The Gold Report: You have doubled down on your declaration that “Nov. 5 was the bottom for gold and gold equities.” What makes you so certain? Gwen Preston: The primary reason is fundamental: supply and demand. Demand for gold remains strong despite headlines about exchange-traded funds liquidating their holdings. Physical buyers are buying a lot of gold. These include the central banks of China and Russia, countries pushing for an alternative to the U.S. dollar for international trade, and individual buyers in India and China, people who have long believed in gold as a store of value. The latter buy when it’s cheap, which has resulted in $1,200 per ounce ($1,200/oz) becoming a real bottom for gold. Every time the price falls toward $1,200/oz, the Shanghai premium—the extra amount that buyers in China are willing to pay at that moment to get their hands on an ounce of gold—spikes. “Pilot Gold Inc. has been able to keep its treasury pretty full.“ Meanwhile, gold supply is starting to shrink. Producers let costs climb out of control during gold’s bull market. When the bear market came, they then had to cut costs. New mines and mine expansions were deferred or canceled and output from higher-cost operations was cut back. We have reached peak gold—we will never again produce as much gold as we’re producing now. TGR: What are the other reasons in support of your argument? GP: The second reason is that, even after expenditures were reined in, the all-in sustaining cost … Continue reading

Jeb Handwerger: A Surge in M&As Proves that Gold Is Back

The Mining Report: You’re fond of the saying, “As January goes, so goes the year.” Given how gold performed last month, up 8%, what does this tell you about the rest of 2015? Jeb Handwerger: Going back over the last 100 years, the statistics are on the side of the sector that outperforms in January. And this January, precious metals and junior miners have taken off, breaking out against all major currencies. Gold bullion outperformed all other currencies, and it’s also beginning to break out against the U.S. dollar. The gold price broke above the 200-day moving average versus the greenback, which many observers see as an indicator of the medium- to long-term trend. Since then it has pulled back to the 50-day moving average, which should act as support as it is begins to slope higher. “Integra Gold Corp.’s Lamaque is one of the highest-quality assets in Quebec controlled by a junior miner.“ We’re seeing a big increase in mergers and acquisitions (M&As). In November, Osisko Gold Royalties Ltd. (OR:TSX) bought Virginia Mines Inc. (VGQ:TSX). In December, Coeur Mining Inc. (CDE:NYSE) bought Paramount Gold and Silver Corp. (PZG:TSX; PZG:NYSE.MKT). In January, Goldcorp Inc. (G:TSX; GG:NYSE) bought Probe Mines Ltd. (PRB:TSX.V) for $440 million ($440M). And in uranium, Uranerz Energy Corp. (URZ:TSX; URZ:NYSE.MKT) and Energy Fuels Inc. (EFR:TSX; UUUU:NYSE.MKT; EFRFF:OTCQX) merged. All this tells me there’s been a sentiment change. Probe and Paramount were mentioned in last year’s interview as takeout candidates. TMR: Gold ended the month over $1,275 per … Continue reading
