Contrarian investor Rick Rule shares his winning strategies

Published by Resource World on July 5, 2017 Interview by Ellsworth Dickson As attendees of resource investor conferences know, Rick Rule, President and CEO of Sprott U.S. Holdings Inc., often speaks to standing room only crowds. His dynamic presentations usually go against the grain of the usual ways of looking at mining stocks. Resource World was fortunate to catch him for this interview as he is often on the road. RESOURCE WORLD: When you were attending the University of British Columbia, did you have a plan laid out for your career? RICK RULE: Yes – but I didn’t follow it. I wanted to become a taxation lawyer focused on natural resources. RW: Weren’t you studying mineral economics there? RR:         My interest was natural resource finance in mineral economics but I was in the faculty of commerce. My view was that UBC had a compound degree that gave you a Bachelor of Commerce and a law degree and so my initial idea was to become a lawyer specializing in international natural resource taxation. RW: What was your first job related to the resource sector? RR:         I had substantial success as a speculator. Owning a bar in the financial district of down-town Vancouver gave me unparalleled access to information. Building on that success, I became securities licensed. RW: I’ve heard you say to your audiences at presentations: “Be a contrarian or a victim.” Can you outline your contrarian philosophy and how investors can make it work for them? RR:         Absolutely! There’s no … Continue reading

Nasdaq Closes At High – The Stock Warrant Handbook

Dudley Pierce Baker The Nasdaq Market continues to hit new highs almost on a daily basis. The Nasdaq is a diversified index but includes many biotechnology and pharmaceuticals companies. Many companies on the Nasdaq have stock warrants trading which can provide investors with much more upside leverage as well as a much lower cost than buying the common shares of those companies. In my recently published book, “The Stock Warrant Handbook”, Your Personal Guide To Trading Stock Warrants, I refer to market timing as an essential element in your investment decisions. “…The market trend, i.e., bull market, bear market or trending can greatly determine your level of success. If you will, think about as a child getting on and off of a merry-go-round. When to jump on and when to jump off can be challenging and scary. Likewise, your timing with investments as to when to enter and exit your positions with warrants will determine your level of success….” For a limited time, I am providing FREE copies of my book, which can also be found on You may download your free copy on my website. … Continue reading

May 7, 2017 What I See Next For Gold and Silver Still lots of divergences in the markets with the Dow and S&P 500 trading at their all time highs and gold, silver and junior mining shares tanking. There is surely ‘something here’ for all investors and particularly for those interested in long-term stock warrants.

Now back to gold and silver…… From the charts below I see that gold and silver are still holding above long-term support and both are either at are very near ‘oversold’ when looking at the technicals. I therefore, believe that we have either bottomed or will bottom very soon. On Friday, May 5th, we actually had shares as measured by the HUI above increase while gold and silver continued to decline, perhaps, just perhaps this is the sight of a bottom.

✅ DJIA Near Highs and Gold Springs Back to Life

March 19, 2017 DJIA Near Highs and Gold Springs Back to Life Good Sunday Afternoon, This week the DJIA closed at 20914 near the highs giving support to U.S. stocks and the warrants trading thereon. Gold as well sprang back to life after the Fed announcements and closed the week at $1229. Silver            $17.41 Crude Oil      $49.31 Copper           $2.69 USD              100.37 In our opinion the US Dollar has put in place a major top on the weekly chart we show below. The negative divergence is easy to see with the USD heading up but the indicators diverting to the downside. Of course, all of this with the Trump administration basically talking down the dollar. Over time this will no doubt impact the U.S. markets and should be a positive indicator for the future price of gold and commodities, we shall see. My preference is to ‘play this game’ with the junior mining shares and/or stock warrants. However, many investors are finding great opportunities with warrants on the U.S. stocks in other sectors, bio-techs, pharmaceuticals, banking, etc. Let me assist you with finding these opportunities and increasing your gains as I am on a roll with some monster gains over the last few months, yes 1,000%, and 2,000% PLUS gains. Remember that only 25% or so of my personal portfolio is in stock warrants, the balance are common shares in the junior mining companies … Continue reading

How To Buy Shares and Stock Warrants On Canadian Companies

How To Buy Shares and Stock Warrants On Canadian Companies January 31, 2017 By Dudley Pierce Baker Most of the readers here are interested in the resource sector which includes the junior mining companies as well as oil and gas companies. My opinion is that we will see a very positive tone for the next few years for gold, silver and copper and look for substantially higher prices with many great opportunities for investors. Since most of these resource companies are Canadian companies the issue for some investors is ‘how to buy the Canadian shares or perhaps the stock warrants on Canadian companies?” Also, I frequently receive emails asking if the traditional brokerage firms will trade the warrants? Allow me to clarify this situation for all investors: Canadian Citizens You are probably asking what is the big deal? Canadians can easily purchase the shares and stock warrants trading on Canadian companies through their brokers, no problems here. U.S. Citizens Most of the Canadian shares and about 60% of the stock warrants trading on the Canadian companies have been assigned U.S. symbols which facilitates the trading in the U.S. Most Canadian companies frankly do not really care if their stock warrants trade and it is up to a U.S. market maker to establish a market (not the company) and assign a symbol for trading. The stock warrants on the Canadian companies are not and will not be registered in the United States, however, this is not a problem. Investors are … Continue reading

A Great Subscriber Story With Stock Warrants

December 10, 2016 By: Dudley Pierce Baker This week I heard from a subscriber to our services with a great story. I am leaving out their names but otherwise this is their words…… “…We want to thank you also for having such a website.  A little story, and you can share it with your readers if you like, but we stay anonymous:  In July we vacationed in Nova Scotia.  A taxi driver saw my bandaged knees and told us about Cannabis.  Until then we thought it was BAD stuff, a vice.  We learned from him about Rick Simpson, and our eyes were opened to the truth about this healing plant.  Our history in investing has been poor, and we lost almost everything in 2008.  We continued investing, but continued doing poorly.  We liked warrants, we had done a little with them successfully.  Then in July after our vacation we found your site, and your new warrant at the time was OGI.wt  —  since then we have (on a small budget) made over $20,000 on that one warrant, with a little money, going in and out.  We learned about the other big Canadian cannabis companies, and bought into them:  Mettrum, Canopy, Aphria.  All have kept going, thru thick and thin, Brexit, election turmoil, etc. We thank the Lord for leading us to the taxi driver, and soon after, to Dudley!  Regards,,,,” It is always great to hear back from happy subscribers. If you are not a current subscriber this would … Continue reading

Achieving 2,000% Gains In Todays Market

December 10, 2016 By: Dudley Pierce Baker Contrary to the performance of gold, silver and mining shares, this was a great week in the markets for me and for those subscribers following me. Our objective is to be involved with companies which have the opportunity to deliver 500%, 1000%, 2000% gains or more, either by owning the common shares or the stock warrants on those companies. My Gold and Lifetime Subscribers get to see everything that I own and what I do basically in real time. So what happened this week? I want to share with you two actually examples of our gains and performance. First is Northern Dynasty Minerals, TSX:NDM, which closed at a yearly high on Thursday, December 8th. I have chosen to invest in the Warrant B, TSX:NDM.WT.B which gives the holder the right to buy NDM at a price of C$0.65 until 10 June 2021. The warrant B was issued in June 2016 in connection with a stock offering and I was able to buy a nice position for C$0.165. This warrant closed at C$1.87 on Thursday and opened at C$2.00 on Friday before selling off on the day. Thus over 1000% gains were achieved in less than 6 months. Personally, I am maintaining my position to take advantage of further upside in the shares and warrants but my followers and subscribers could have easily achieved these gains and sold if they wanted. Another great position for us which I have shared with subscribers for … Continue reading

Doug Casey on the Coming Collapse of the World’s Biggest Economy

Doug Casey on the Coming Collapse of the World’s Biggest Economy By Nick Giambruno Nick Giambruno: The entire European Union is looking shakier by the day. Donald Trump’s victory—which shocked Europe’s political and media elite—gives Eurosceptic parties, the Continent’s populists, even more political rocket fuel. What’s your take? Doug Casey: The Social Democratic, Christian Democratic, Socialist, Communist, and similar parties have ruled Europe since the end of World War 2. They’re all pretty similar in that they promote massive welfare benefits, strong labor unions, large state bureaucracies, very high taxes, strict regulations, and an atmosphere of Cultural Marxism. Then, every few generations, the voters react and install a “fascist” regime. These keep most of the socialist characteristics, but tend to be supported by, and friendly to, Big Business. That, and they add on nationalism, xenophobia, and militarism. The last time this happened was in the 1930s. In those days it was spurred by the Great Depression. This time it will be spurred by the Greater Depression, plus massive waves of Muslim migrants from the Near East and Africa. So I expect to see more neo-fascist political parties everywhere. Oddly, the Europeans can’t seem to imagine a libertarian alternative of private charities, limited government, minimal taxes, an unregulated economy, and intellectual/psychological freedom. It’s another reason the Continent is a sinking ship. Incidentally, people think of these countries—Italy, France, Germany, and so on—as though they are fixtures in the cosmos. But they aren’t. In their current forms, they’re all newcomers on the stage … Continue reading
