Your Best Opportunity For Wealth Creation

You can call me lucky if you want, I don’t care. I am only out to become wealthy in the next two years. If you choose to sit out this coming rally you will have no one to blame but yourself, but don’t tell your spouse as they will  surely disown you, if you miss this opportunity. This is Dudley Pierce Baker, the editor of http://JuniorMiningNews.com and http://CommonStockWarrants.com and I believe we are on the verge of a major move up in the resource sector. Timing is everything in the markets and the timing seems to be on our side for resource investors. The next two years are being talked about now by several newsletter writers and even by Jim Cramer (CNBC) as an excellent time to being investing in the precious resource sector. In a few years, some investors will think they are smart as heck when if fact they are just lucky to have been invested in the resource sector at this particular time. So, timing will prove the expression correct, that ‘it is better to be lucky than to be smart’. The important take away for you as an investor is that the stage has been set (bottoms are in and bases built) and the next two years may well present investors with an explosive rally in silver, gold, copper and possibly uranium. Simon Constable writing for TheStreet.com, Why It’s a Good Time to Invest in Copper has an interview with Jim Cramer on Freeport-McMoRan: Prices Are Exploding.

Worried About Rising Rates?

Worried About Rising Rates? I Believe this Strategy Could Be the Answer March 21, 2018     With interest rates continuing to creep up, there’s a changing of the guard at the Federal Reserve. In my travels and during conferences, I’ve spoken with many fixed-income investors who wonder how they can best prepare for the uncertainty these changes might bring. I’ll share my favorite idea below, but first, a few words on the new head of the Fed, Jerome Powell. The U.S. Senate voted in January to confirm Powell as the next chair of the U.S. central bank, and I don’t believe I’m alone in seeing his appointment as a political compromise. Although he has vowed to stay the course with former chair Janet Yellen’s cautious rate hikes—something President Donald Trump was in favor of—Powell is a skeptic of financial regulations. To be clear, he’s expressed approval for some of the Fed’s oversight of the financial market, but he’s also pointed to areas where he thinks regulation may have become too burdensome—especially to small regional and community banks. In his November confirmation hearing, he said he supported “tailoring” regulations to fit the institution. This is a welcome and refreshing change in thinking. If you recall, during one of her final speeches at the Jackson Hole symposium in August, Yellen defended the strict, broad-based financial regulations put in place after the financial crisis—Dodd-Frank included. But as I shared with you this week, Congress and President Donald Trump are now working to … Continue reading

Frank Holmes: A Tsunami of Selling in Gold Miners Is About to End

BY COLLIN KETTELL ON JUNE 14, 2017 Editor’s Note from Dudley Pierce Baker http://CommonStockWarrants.com Frank Holmes does a great job of explaining the situation with the GDX and GDXJ. The selling pressure should be coming to an end soon and friends, it is time to be invested in the resource sector, NOW. Frank discusses how the GDXJ became just a buying index with no separation of value and little understanding of who was doing well fundamentally. The re-balancing has created a large uncertainty with five billion dollars initially moving into the space and now three billion dollars leaving it. This will affect many of the small and mid cap producers. The investment money is being reallocated to the big names like the Barricks, the Newmonts, and the Goldcorps of the world. You should use this as an opportunity, as some of these stocks have been sold down indiscriminately even though they are reporting phenomenal fundamentals. June 16th is the last drop date for names that will be sold, look for opportunities to buy in afterwards and towards the end of the month. You want to be selective and look for those stocks with higher profit margins and high returns on invested capital. His analysis shows that a lot of shareholder value has been destroyed by companies increasing their shares. Only a few companies protected their shareholders wealth, and the large capital flows into GDXJ has tended to cover for those that did not. Wesdome and Klondex are two companies that … Continue reading

Vancouver Conference – Frank Holmes – Rick Rule – Articles

First, a special thanks to Bob Moriarty of 321Gold.com for sharing with his readership, The Stock Warrant Handbook. In my opinion, the recent Cambridge House Writers Conference in Vancouver was a huge success. I would estimate over 1,000 investors attended the two day event with many of the newsletter writers in attendance. It was great to get to visit one-on-one with Rick Rule and Frank Holmes. As well as conversations with Brent Cook, Nick Hodge, Mickey Fulp, David Morgan, Joe Martin, Greg McCoach, Ellis Martin and others. I had dinner one night with a group hosted by John-Mark Staude, President of Riverside Resources, TSXV:RRI. The tone of the conference was very positive and most are of the view that the next few years should be very favorable to our resource sector. I also took the opportunity while in Vancouver to visit with representatives of Stockhouse.com and Stockwatch.com both companies which I use their services to assist me with my services. So as an investor, ‘what are you going to do’? As a contrarian, this is obviously the time to be investing in the resource sector and the Dow and S&P 500 continue to trade near highs. 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, biotechs, pharmaceuticals, banking, etc. Remember that only 25% or so of my personal portfolio is in stock warrants, the balance are common shares … Continue reading

Is India the New China?

        Is India the New China? By Frank Holmes CEO and Chief Investment Officer U.S. Global Investors A “slow-growth trap.” That’s how the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) described the global economy yesterday in its latest Global Economic Outlook. The group sees world GDP advancing only 3 percent in 2016, the same as last year, with a slight bump up to 3.3 percent in 2017. Catherine Mann, the OECD’s chief economist, urged policymakers around the world to prioritize structural reforms that “enhance market competition, innovation and dynamism,” as monetary policy has been used alone as the main tool for far too long. The longer the global economy remains in this “slow-growth trap,” Mann said, the harder it will become to revive market forces. This is precisely in-line with what I, and many of my colleagues, have stressed for months now. To push the economy on a high-growth path, we need structural fiscal reforms, both here and abroad. One need only look at the global purchasing managers’ index (PMI) to see that manufacturing conditions have been slowing for the past several years since the financial crisis. The PMI in May registered a 50.0, which Markit Economics describes as “lethargic” and “low gear.” click to enlarge U.S. manufacturing also saw further weakness in May, with its PMI reading falling to 50.7, more than a six-year low. The eurozone’s PMI fell to 51.5, a three-month low. Meanwhile, the Caixin China General Manufacturing PMI came in at 49.2, still … Continue reading

Your Video Recording of Casey’s GOING VERTICAL Is Ready

Click here to watch GOING VERTICAL  ((http://vertical.caseyresearch.com/go/uicpp-2/CSW)) Dear Reader, Franco-Nevada co-founder and chairman Pierre Lassonde has been buying mining stocks for his own portfolio again since last October: “[The] gold stocks—just like in 2001—are at absolute rock bottom. In fifteen years, they have not been so low. So I think there’s a historical opportunity, a once-in-a-generation opportunity, right now.” And Rick Rule, founder and chairman of Sprott Global Resource Investments, says in a few years, “people will call this the good old days.” What they—and the other six guest stars of Casey Research’s just aired online event GOING VERTICAL—agree on is that it’s time to prepare your portfolio if you want a shot at vertical gains once the mining sector recovers. Even the major gold producers are so undervalued that they could rise 150% – 200%. But the best of the best junior miners, the survivors of the bloodbath, are poised to generate returns of up to 1,000% or more.

Could Apple Buy a Third of the World’s Gold?

February 27, 2015 By Frank Holmes CEO and Chief Investment Officer U.S. Global Investors Is there anything Apple can’t do? First it revolutionized the personal computing business. Then, with the launch of the iPod in 2001, it forced the music industry to change its tune. Against initial market reservations, the company succeeded at making Star Trek-like tablets hip when it released the iPad in 2010. And in Q1 2015, a record 75 million units of its now-ubiquitous iPhone were sold around the globe. The smartphone’s operating system, iOS, currently controls a jaw-dropping 89-percent share of all systems worldwide, pushing the second-place OS, Google’s Android, down to 11 percent from 30 percent just a year ago. As you might already know, the company that Steve Jobs built—which we own in our All American Equity Fund (GBTFX) and Holmes Macro Trends Fund (MEGAX)—is history’s largest by net capitalization. In its last quarterly report, Apple posted a record $75 billion in revenue and is now sitting pretty on a mind-boggling $180 billionin cash. Many analysts believe the company will reach a jaw-dropping $1 trillion in market cap. So what’s Apple’s next trick? How about moving the world’s gold market? iGold This April, Apple will be venturing into the latest wearable gadget market, the smartwatch, joining competitors such as Samsung, Garmin and Sony. All of the models in Apple’s stable of watches look  sleek and beautifully designed—just what you’d expect from Apple—and will no doubt be capable of performing all sorts of high-tech functions such as receiving text messages, … Continue reading

What the Strong Dollar Does to Yellow and Black Gold and Why We’re Seeing Green

Editors Note: This is still a very timely read based upon what has been since October 2014 to the price of the USD, gold and oil. October 20, 2014 Frank Holmes The United States is doing better than it has in years. Jobs growth is up, unemployment is down, our manufacturing sector carries the rest of the world on its shoulders like a wounded soldier and the World Economic Forum named the U.S. the third-most competitive nation, our highest ranking since before the recession. As heretical as it sounds, there’s a downside to America’s success, and that’s a stronger dollar. Although our currency has softened recently, it has put pressure on two commodities that we consider our lifeblood at U.S. Global Investors: gold and oil. It’s worth noting that we’ve been here before. In October 2011, a similar correction occurred in energy, commodities and resources stocks based on European and Chinese growth fears. But international economic stimulus measures helped raise market confidence, and many of the companies we now own within these sectors benefited. Between October 2011 and January 2012, Anadarko Petroleum rose 58 percent; Canadian Natural Resources, 20 percent; Devon Energy, 15 percent; Cimarex Energy, 15 percent; Peyto Exploration & Development, 15 percent; and Suncor Energy, 10 percent. Granted, we face new challenges this year that have caused market jitters—Ebola and ISIS, just to name a couple. But we’re confident that once the dollar begins to revert back to the mean, a rally in energy and resources stocks might soon follow. Brian Hicks, … Continue reading
