Dundee Capital Markets’ Matt O’Keefe Calls Out Seven Mining Rerating Opportunities

Matthew O’Keefe, vice president and senior analyst with Dundee Capital Markets, says big gains—50% or greater—in mining equities can come when stocks get rerated. That typically happens when explorers make a significant discovery, developers turn into producers, and producers become even bigger producers.
