Three (3) Companies You Need To Know About Now!!!

Hello Investors, Dudley Pierce Baker here. I am the founder and editor of Common Stock Warrants and Junior Mining News, both with a long history of success in the investment community. These are crazy markets……Dow and S&P hitting highs, Bitcoin going parabolic (but for how long) while the resource sector continues to languish in the doldrums. As a contrarian investor it is simple to know what to do, ‘you must be buying the resource sector NOW’. In my weekly audio for my Gold and Lifetime Subscribers, I frequently speak about my top 3 positions, each of which I expect to 10 Baggers, meaning 1,000% PLUS gainers.  Position #1 is in the green space and a recycler of great interest to investors in cobalt, nickel, etc., and selling for only C$0.28 as I write.  My #2 position is a Canadian Oil & Gas company now strategically positioned in Mexico, yes, that is correct. A management and advisory team that will blow your mind and selling for only C$0.29. My #3 position is a gold company which will soon be changing its name and headed by a billionaire and backed by many of the big names in the resource sector. Selling for only C$0.92 and has around C$100 Million cash. I am excited about all 3 of my top personal investments and while I expect each to be a giant winner, if only one of these companies performs to my expectation, I will still be a huge winner and you can too. … Continue reading

Is Gold Waiting For the Winter Solstice – Dec. 21-22

Will it, or won’t it – break out or break down? One of the several newsletters that I personally subscribe to sees the upcoming Winter Solstice, December 21 -22 as the turning point for gold and we ‘may’ decline to the $1250 area before the turn takes place. My subscribers know who this is as I mention their name frequently and suggest they also subscribe to his letter. Join me now before my audio on Thursday and learn more. Unfortunately, patience continues to be the name of the game (but not for long) while we seek out new investment opportunities at the current low prices in the resource sector. YOU MUST BE A CONTRARIAN in order to make money in the resource sector and I know it is difficult to buy into some of these low priced shares, but do you homework, look at charts and always evaluate the insider positions. I would never buy any shares in any company without knowing what the insiders are doing. In my services, I provide a link to the current insider activity to assist my subscribers in making good decisions. For those Gold and Lifetime Subscribers which have access to my personal portfolio they will also get my comments in my weekly Thursday audio. 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 … Continue reading

President Proposes $922 Million FY18 Budget for USGS

President Proposes $922 Million FY18 Budget for USGS Budget Focuses on Core USGS Science and Efficiency Release Date: MAY 23, 2017 Budget Focuses on Core USGS Science and Efficiency President Donald Trump today proposed a $922.2 million Fiscal Year 2018 (FY18) budget for the U.S. Geological Survey.  This highlights the Administration’s commitment to increasing efficiency across the federal government and science supporting national objectives and priorities.  The President’s proposed FY18 request reflects a savings of $137.8 million in appropriated funds from the FY 2017 CR baseline and a continued commitment to the bureau’s core mission. “President Trump promised the American people he would cut wasteful spending and make the government work for the taxpayer again, and that’s exactly what this budget does,” said U.S. Secretary of the Interior Ryan Zinke. “Working carefully with the President, we identified areas where we could reduce spending and also areas for investment, such as addressing the maintenance backlog in our National Parks and increasing domestic energy production on federal lands. The budget also allows the Department to return to the traditional principles of multiple-use management to include both responsible natural resource development and conservation of special places. Being from the West, I’ve seen how years of bloated bureaucracy and D.C.-centric policies hurt our rural communities. The President’s budget saves taxpayers by focusing program spending, shrinking bureaucracy, and empowering the front lines.” The request ensures that the USGS will continue to focus on conducting leading-edge research and providing impartial scientific data to key stakeholders and decision-makers to help promote stewardship of public lands … Continue reading

Trump and a New Gold-Backed Dollar

Trump and a New Gold-Backed Dollar By Nick Giambruno On August 15, 1971, President Nixon killed the last remnants of the gold standard. Since then, the dollar has been a pure fiat currency, allowing the Fed to print as many dollars as it pleases. Removing the US dollar’s last link to gold eliminated the main motivation for foreign countries to store large dollar reserves and to use the dollar for international trade. At this point, demand for dollars was set to fall… along with the dollar’s purchasing power. So the US government concocted a new arrangement to give foreign countries another compelling reason to hold and use the dollar. The new arrangement, called the petrodollar system, preserved the dollar’s special status as the world’s reserve currency. In short, the US government made a series of agreements with Saudi Arabia between 1972 and 1974, which created the petrodollar. The Saudis would use their dominant position in OPEC to ensure that all oil transactions would only happen in US dollars. And the US would guarantee the House of Saud’s survival. It worked… for a while. The petrodollar filled the void after the US severed the dollar’s last link to gold as the main prop to the dollar’s status as the world’ premier reserve currency. So far, the petrodollar has lasted over 40 years. However, the glue is losing its stick. I think we’re on the cusp of another paradigm shift in the international financial system, a change at least as fundamental as what … Continue reading

CAN NEW PRESIDENT MAKE THINGS BETTER FOR THE PEOPLE?

Where is this economic boom that Former President Obama and his administration had taken so much credit for? The Obama Administration, with the assistance of the Federal Reserve and Company, deliberately kept the U.S. economy from creating any growth at all.  The money that flowed from the Federal Reserve, over the last 8 years, had a direct pipeline that flowed only into Wall Street Investment Banks. The American people were sold this false bill of sale that “Quantitative Easing” was going to make lending money to “Main Street America” easier to access. They promised that there would be a boost in hiring which would, in turn, increase aggregate demand and thereby reflect a newly stimulated economic growth! This QE effectively down-sized the middle class into minority status.  The largest growth has occurred within the low-income category.  Despite the stock market reaching near all-time highs and real estate bubbling over once again, there are now 45 million Americans on food stamps.  This number is at an all-time high.  People are feeling poorer today than ever, and with sky rocketing real-estate prices those who do not own a home cannot afford to buy anymore! This massive disconnect is expanding exponentially. The velocity of money is the number of times that currency is turned over to purchase domestically- produced goods and services.  One can see, as in the chart below, that the velocity of money has been steadily decreasing.  There are less transactions occurring by individuals in our economy.  One can see that … Continue reading

Investors Are Pouring Into Gold

By: Luzi-Ann Javier February 2, 2017, 10:17 AM CST February 2, 2017, 2:17 PM CST The Federal Reserve has emboldened gold bulls. Prices and trading volumes surged Thursday on call options giving holders the right to buy bullion at higher prices. On Wednesday, investors poured $413 million into SPDR Gold Shares, the largest ETF backed by the metal, recouping almost half of the money that exited last month. The Fed, which kept interest rates steady this week after a two-day meeting, gave little clue on when it might next tighten monetary as officials grapple with the uncertainty created by a new presidential administration. Policy makers in December telegraphed three rate hikes for 2017. Gold prices have rebounded about 6 percent this year, helped by a weaker dollar and demand for the metal as a haven, after posting the worst quarterly loss since 2013. “There is no imminent concern of a Fed rate hike, and that gleams the green light on for the metals to move higher,” David Meger, a director of metals trading at High Ridge Futures in Chicago, said in a telephone interview. “The weakening dollar and the lack of concern of a Fed interest-rate hike, and slightly higher inflationary numbers in the market, all support the precious metals.” Gold futures for April delivery advanced 0.9 percent to settle at $1,219.40 an ounce at 1:41 p.m. on the Comex in New York, after touching $1,227.50, the highest for a most-active contract since Nov. 17. Call options giving holders the … Continue reading

How every commodity performed in 2016

Visual Capitalist | Jan. 8, 2017, 2:50 PM Iron ore and zinc were the best performing commodities on the face of the planet in 2016. Iron finished up 81%, its first calendar gain in four years. Meanwhile, zinc shot up 65.7% on the year as major zinc mines shut down, and supply stockpiles dwindled. Courtesy of: Visual Capitalist 2016 Commodity Performance It was an up and down year for commodities, but things ultimately finished in the black. The S&P Goldman Sachs Commodity Index (GSCI) climbed 10.1% on the year – it was just enough to edge out the S&P 500, which ended 2016 with a 9.5% return. WINNERS IN 2016 The biggest winners on the year were base metals and the oil and gas sector. Here’s how base metals did: Base Metal Q1 Q2 Q3 Q4 2016 Iron Ore 37.0% -6.2% 6.3% 31.1% 81.0% Zinc 20.0% 13.1% -3.2% 26.1% 65.7% Nickel -3.1% 13.9% 11.9% -5.0% 17.3% Aluminum 3.8% 7.2% 1.4% 4.0% 17.3% Copper 0.1% 3.9% -0.5% 13.1% 17.1% Iron ore and zinc were the best performing commodities on the face of the planet in 2016. Iron finished up 81%, its first calendar gain in four years. Meanwhile, zinc shot up 65.7% on the year as major zinc mines shut down, and supply stockpiles dwindled. Oil and gas also posted a major comeback in 2016: Energy Q1 Q2 Q3 Q4 2016 Natural gas -17.0% 53.3% -2.7% 28.0% 58.5% Oil (Brent) 0.6% 35.1% -1.2% 13.6% 52.4% Oil (WTI) -3.2% 37.3% -2.1% 11.4% … 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 http://CommonStockWarrants.com 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

Deutsche Bank – The Meltdown Crisis

Posted Sep 29, 2016 by Martin Armstrong Ten of the large hedge funds are withdrawing from Deutsche Bank. What must be understood here is that Deutsche Bank is the main clearing house for trades in Europe. The problem the hedge funds have is where do they move for clearing? Short-term, they can move to New York or London. With over $60 trillion derivative book at the Deutsche Bank, the government is totally incapable of even understanding how to deal with this crisis. We are looking at a major crisis in confidence. Merkel is simply out of her mind to adhere to this insane policy of a bail-in. How can hedge funds stay with clearing at Deutsche Bank when she takes this position that would set off a catastrophic global meltdown. It still appears that Merkel will have to blink. Once people realize this is the real crisis, then the German debt market should turn down rather hard. The pressure is clearly building based upon how my own phone is melting down. This illustration based upon IMF data, illustrates the global contagion. I “BELIEVE” that Merkel will be compelled to blink. We may see an announcement this weekend at the latest where she must address this issue. The implications of a global contagion go far beyond Germany. Investors in Deutsche Bank are obviously looking to Merkel and whether or not she will step up to the plate here. DB shares have plummeted more than 50 percent this year. The prospect of bailing … Continue reading
