Definition Of A Stock Warrant

Several years ago in New York at a Hard Assets Investment Conference, a newsletter writer with over 30 years in the business, asked me, “Dudley, what is a stock warrant?” After regaining my composure, I responded just like I am addressing you, by defining a warrant and why you should be interested. By definition, a warrant is a security, issued by a company, giving the holder the right, but not the obligation, to acquire the underlying shares, at a specific price and expiring on a specific date in the future. This definition is very similar to stock options or LEAPS, (Long-Term Equity Anticipation Securities) except that warrants are actually issued by a company, whereas options and LEAPS are created/written by investors. Warrants are traditionally issued in connection with a company’s private placement or equity offering as additional incentive to get the deal done. Warrants are mostly a matter of common sense and arithmetic, so let’s not make this complicated. Stock warrants can be issued by companies for as little as 1 year or for 5 years or more. Obviously, the longer the term of the warrant (time until expiration) the better your chances of great success. However, just because a stock warrant has a 5 year life does not mean that you must hold the warrant for 5 years. With trading warrants you can buy the warrants one day and sell them the next day. Exercising a warrant should never be one of your considerations, as it makes no sense … Continue reading

The History Of Stock Warrants

Warrants have literally been available for investors for many decades but yet are very under appreciated and overlooked by most investors. As far back as the 1920s many large companies have had stock warrants trading, AT&T, Goldcorp, Bank of America, General Motors, Ford Motors and Agnico-Eagle Mines, among hundreds and hundreds of others. My extensive knowledge of warrants goes back to the 1970’s and my fascination with the writings of Sidney Fried and The R.H.M. Warrant Survey, a hard copy newsletter and a popular financial newsletter during the 1950s, 60s and 70s. (Fried, 1949) Sidney Fried passed away in 1991 at the age of 72 and to the best of my knowledge, his service stopped in the late 1970s or early 1980s around the time that options began to trade on the CBOE. Sidney Fried’s first book, ‘The Speculative Merits of Common Stock Warrants’ (1949) is a rare and timeless educational tool for warrants and is the core of knowledge used by me in my service. Since 2005 I have used this cumulative knowledge of warrants which I learned from the ‘master’ to educate and assist investors around the world and I have collected all of the writings of Sidney Fried. Even though these works are old, the information is timeless and only the examples used are out of date. One quote from Sidney Fried which I have used many times at investment conferences is very appropriate here: “With potential profits and losses so great it a source of wonder that so little understanding … Continue reading

What’s The Fascination With Football? Pre-Game or Post-Game Reading Suggestions

I get it, today is the big day for football fans but when the markets open in the morning thoughts return to which markets are hot and which are not. We have some great articles below for your reading and yes, I am bullish on the commodity/resource sector as are others. It seems reasonable that this is the time to be an aggressive investor in this sector for the next few years. Late comers will be paying substantially higher prices for shares/stock warrants, but it is your choice, now or later. Look at this chart from our friends at CaseyResearch.com, which should motivate you to be invested now as the entire commodity sector is at its lowest in decades relative to the S&P500. For me, there is only one way to play this ‘game’ by investing in quality junior mining companies and/or long-term stock warrants trading on those companies. If you are not familiar with stock warrants, you can receive The Stock Warrant Handbook for FREE by visiting, http://CommonStockWarrants.com along with more freebies. As well, many investors are finding great opportunities with warrants on the U.S. stocks in other sectors, bio-techs, pharmaceuticals, banking, blank check companies, etc. Remember that only 25% or so of my personal portfolio is in stock warrants, the balance are common shares in the junior mining companies and I am on the hunt for new additions to my portfolio.There are many interesting opportunities in stocks as well as the stock warrants available today, so if you … Continue reading

Why Commodities Are Poised for Their Biggest Rally in 50 Years

By David Forest February 2, 2019                         Justin’s note: Today, we hand the reins to Casey Research’s in-house commodities expert, David Forest, who says commodities are primed for an explosive bull run. In fact, as you’ll see, this could be their biggest rally in 50 years… and now is the time to take advantage. Read on to get all the details, including a “one-click” way to get exposure today. By David Forest, editor, International Speculator It’s the most important chart in the resource space today… And it’s telling us that commodities are primed for their biggest rally of the last 50 years. Why is this the best setup for commodities in half a century? • Take a look below… The chart I’m referring to tracks the S&P GSCI – which tracks prices for 24 commonly traded commodities – relative to the S&P 500. We’ve labeled a few important events on it… When the blue line on the chart is rising, commodities are getting more expensive relative to the S&P 500 – a good proxy for the U.S. stock market. When the line is falling, commodities are getting cheaper relative to stocks. As you can see, when commodities are at historic lows relative to stocks [green circles on the chart], it’s been a great time to buy. For instance, two entry points for investors in the past were in 1971 – after we went off the gold standard – and in 1999, at the … Continue reading

Get Ready For The Next Big Upside Leg In Metals And Miners

February 1, 2019 We recently closed our GDXJ trade for a 10.5% total profit with our members.  We are preparing for a lower price rotation over the next 45+ days that will allow us to plan for new long.  Our research indicates the metals/miners should enter a downside price rotation over the next 45+ days as the US stock markets continue to rally.  Give this expectation, it is important to understand how we are timing this move for our members and attempting to take advantage of strategic trade deployment. With Gold recently breaking above $1300, many analysts have been calling for a continued breakout move to the upside as well as a massive market correction in the US stock market.  We’ve been calling for just the opposite to happen – a pause in the metals/miners near this $1300~1320 level. If our analysis is correct, a renewed capital shift will continue to unfold over the next 30~45 days where foreign capital will move into the US stock market (including technology, financial, medical/biotech, blue chips, mid-caps, and others) as global investors chase the safety and returns of the US Dollar and the US stock market.  This process of deploying capital into the US stock market will relieve upside pressure in the metals/miners for a brief period of time – resulting in a price pullback.  Our expectations are that the GDXJ price will rotate back below $31 and likely target a support level near $30.50~30.65.  This is near where we intend to look … Continue reading

Are Global Stock Markets About To Rally 10 Percent?

ARE GLOBAL STOCK MARKETS ABOUT TO RALLY 10 PERCENT? January 14, 2019 Technical Traders Ltd. is issuing new analysis which indicates the US and global markets may be poised for a dramatic upside price swing over the next couple months.  Recent events have driven asset class values to new valuations that may change the dynamics of markets for a few months.  Prior to August/September 2018, many traders were fearful of the expectations of the US Federal Reserve, Global Trade Issues and the US Elections. Combine this with the end of the year liquidity issues and the threat of a US government shutdown over the wall funding and we have almost a perfect storm brewing for uncertainty and fear. Now, it appears, our custom global market indexes are showing signs that a bottom may have formed over the past few weeks and that the global equities markets may be poised for an upside move in the range of +10% to +20% over the next 2-4 months. “What changed over the past month?”, you might be asking?  Valuation levels have changed.  The chart below is a Weekly chart of our Custom Smart Cash index.  We use this as a measure of global equity market valuation and to determine if and when pricing levels are changing in terms of total market capitalization.  We can see from early 2018, the global markets peaked and began to move lower.  Even though the US markets pushed higher throughout this time, the total global markets continued to … Continue reading

The #1 Reason Silver & Silver Stocks Will Explode Higher in 2019

By Jeff Clark – Published on January 3, 2019 VRIC 2019 Featured Speaker: Jeff Clark The world is filled with toppy markets, financial bubbles, and bloated debt levels in virtually every segment of society. And it’s all taken place within a global monetary system where, for the first known time in history, all currencies are fiat. This financial and monetary cocktail has pushed risks high, and not for just investors but citizens. It’s crucial that gold and silver comprise a meaningful portion of one’s asset base. Given the nature of similar crises in the past, they will not only preserve purchasing power but are likely to lead to extraordinary capital gains. And of the two metals, silver has the most explosive potential. Why it’s Important: There are many reasons why silver tends to outperform gold. But there’s one major factor that is set to make the silver price scream higher in the next bull market. I’ll point it out in my talk, “The Silver Slam-a-Rama: The #1 Reason Silver & Silver Stocks Will Explode Higher.” The investment opportunity: In a soaring metals environment, silver equities have the potential to provide extraordinary gains, especially coming from such a historically low undervaluation. And some silver stocks are set to rise the most. Don’t Miss Out: This is an incredible time to come catch Jeff Clark at The World’s Largest Resource Investment Conference that happens only once a year. Register for VRIC before it’s too late. … Continue reading

Silver Starts A Breakout Move Higher

SILVER STARTS A BREAKOUT MOVE HIGHER December 31, 2018 Watch Silver, folks. This quiet shiny metal is starting a move that could be very foretelling of global market concerns and risks. Early on December 26, 2018, Silver broke through recent resistance, to the upside, with a relatively large 2.8%+ upside move. Why is this so important to traders? Because Silver is the “sleeper metal” that is typically the last to react to global economic concerns. Once Silver starts to move to the upside with a renewed bullish trend, we believe this move would indicate that bigger players are starting to accumulate Silver as a safe haven for future economic concerns/crisis events. This Daily chart of Silver shows the December 26 upside breakout move. We can clearly see the breakout above $15.00 and the historical resistance just below $15.00. This move is extremely important in the context of the total risk play that has recently played out through the past two months. Take a look as how quiet the Silver market has been over the past few months. Take a look at how Silver reacted only moderately to the recent market selloff and Fed statements. There was no real “fear” exhibited in the metals markets or in Silver over the past 60+ days. Yet, today, there is some real fear that is playing out in the price of Silver. This next Weekly Silver chart helps us to understand the total scope of this move and what we could expect to see … Continue reading
