‘Blank-Check’ Companies Are Hot on Wall Street. Investors Can’t Ignore Them.

By Nicholas Jasinski Jan. 17, 2020 5:14 pm ET   Note from Dudley Pierce Baker of CommonStockWarrants.com Our interest in blank check companies is simple – every blank check company (SPAC) has a stock warrant trading with a 5 year life and the clock does not begin until an acquisition/merger is completed. There are currently 67 blank check companies currently trading and in my databases. Many potentially great opportunities. ______________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Some big-name initial public offerings last year were panned for not having a profitable business. Yet more than a quarter of the offerings were of companies with no business at all—by design. These were special purpose acquisition companies, or SPACs, also known as “blank-check companies.” Their goal is to raise money from public and private investors and then identify an acquisition target and buy it, typically within two years. SPACs raised $13.6 billion in 59 IPOs last year. Should you be investing in one of these companies? The pitfalls can be numerous, and not all SPACs are created equal—but investors should not completely ignore this growing segment of the public markets. Richard Branson’s spaceship company Virgin Galactic Holdings (SPCE), fantasy-sports website DraftKings, Twinkie-maker Hostess Brands (TWNK), and restaurant chain TGI Fridays are among companies to merge with SPACs in recent years. There are currently 71 SPACs on the market seeking targets, according to data from SPACInsider, a website devoted to research analysis and data about the industry. SPACs can designate a target industry or geographic region, or go public as generalists with no specific … Continue reading

SILVER – Should Investors Lower Expectations?

By Dudley Pierce Baker CommonStockWarrants JuniorMiningNews While investors have watched the price of gold performing very well and recently trading over $1600, silver has lagged and lagged badly. This begs the question, are we overrating or expecting too much from silver and our silver miners? Quite the contrary……… Two other analysts that I follow are saying to be patient and that silver will be catching up soon, really soon. Below I give my opinion on how to invest in silver, if these analysts are correct that higher prices are coming. Chris Vermeulen at TheTechnicalTraders.com sees the possibility of silver trading upwards of $90 – $95 per ounce within the next 24 months. A move of that potential is surely worth waiting for, is it not? In this recent article by Chris, SILVER TRADERS BIG TREND ANALYSIS – PART II “…Remember, the current disparity level is just over 200% between Gold and Silver.  If Gold continues to rally higher and Silver attempts to break higher, attempting to narrow the disparity level, then Silver will (at some point) enter a near parabolic upside price move above $36 to $40.  Our researchers believe this may happen before June or July 2020….” Clive Maund – January 13, 2020 writing on Silver-Phoenix500.com: Silver Market Update “…Silver’s recent rally looks diminutive and stunted compared to gold’s, but that’s normal at this early stage of a new bull market, when silver typically underperforms gold due to investors being risk inverse, with silver being perceived as more risky … Continue reading

The Real Gold Bull Market Is Yet to Launch

        Editors Note from Dudley Pierce Baker – CommonStockWarrants.com “Marin Katusa and his team do an excellent job of marketing and presenting the views and justification for the continuing bull market in the resource sector. I basically agree with all of their views. I would suggest and I believe that Marin would agree, that investors should consider stock warrants which might be trading on any of the companies being considered for investment.” The Real Gold Bull Market Is Yet to Launch The gold market has always moved in cycles—from dramatic boom to overnight bust, and eventually back again. So far in this “boom,” gold has barely risen 20% from its floor. That’s not even close to the minimum required to qualify for a true “bull market” over the past century. The smallest gold run-up in the past 90 years was 45% from 1930-1933—more than twice the current gain. The other rallies were far, far bigger: from 1972-1974, the rally yielded a 100% gain. From 1978-1980, another 100% gain. Then from 2007-2010, a 67% increase in the price of gold. The point is this: when gold is ready to rise, it takes off. Every single one of the years in the date ranges above saw an increase of more than 20%. What some investors might see as slipping backwards may just be the cycle getting ready for its next natural advance. So if you’re a subscriber to my Boom-Bust-Echo theory, then you know the gold rally has barely just begun. The biggest profits still … Continue reading

Supercharge Your 2020 Resource Portfolio

        Editors Note from Dudley Pierce Baker – CommonStockWarrants.com “Marin Katusa and his team do an excellent job of marketing and presenting the views and justification for the continuing bull market in the resource sector. I basically agree with all of their views. I would suggest and I believe that Marin would agree, that investors should consider stock warrants which might be trading on any of the companies being considered for investment.” Katusa’s Investment Insights January 3, 2020 Supercharge Your 2020 Resource Portfolio By Marin Katusa The resource sector had a big year in 2019, capped off with a stellar final quarter. I hope everyone’s portfolio capitalized on it. I know the Katusa’s Resource Opportunities portfolio did. Below is a chart which shows the performance for major commodities for 2019. You’ll see it was a tale of 2 worlds. Niche metals like vanadium and cobalt took it hard on the chin. Meanwhile oil, soft commodities, and precious metals rocketed higher. Gold finished up 19% for the year. It was the best annual return for the yellow metal since 2010. Gold producers are leveraged to gold prices. It means that when gold prices go up, producers commonly go up significantly more. The same can be said with the downside, falling gold prices mean crashing gold stocks. This year, however, it was a tale of the former. Gold put up a stellar year and gold producers rocketed higher. Below is a chart which shows the performance of junior gold producers, mid-tier … Continue reading

Precious Metals Companies And Stock Warrants

December 25, 2019 By Dudley Pierce Baker Founder – Editor Common Stock Warrants Junior Mining News Happy Holidays To All and perhaps an idea for you heading into 2020. There are many stock warrants trading on companies in the Precious Metals sector. Perhaps you remember the name Precious Metals Warrants which we founded in 2005? That was a great name at the time as resource companies and stock warrants on those companies did well, very well. That time is here again as I anticipate soon, that gold, silver and mining shares and of course the warrants trading on those shares to rise substantially creating many 500% and 1,000% gains, perhaps much more. In 2013 we changed our name to Common Stock Warrants as expanded our stock warrant database service to include all warrants trading in the United States and Canada and in all industries and sectors. Many of my subscribers are primarily interested in the resource sector and currently there are many warrants trading on companies in the gold, silver, oil & gas and uranium space. Some are begging to be bought at current prices. Subscribers to our Gold or Lifetime Subscriptions have much more information at their disposal, with access to my weekly audio and to my personal portfolio, “A Look Over My Shoulder”. I follow the views and technical analysis of Chris Vermeulen at The Technical Traders and suggest you also visit their website and consider a subscription. I look for 2020 to be a banner year for the … Continue reading

GLOBAL WARNING

GLOBAL WARNING October 17, 2019 by Egon von Greyerz “Sic Transit Gloria Mundi” (Thus passes the glory of the world). This phrase was used at the papal coronations between the early 1400s and 1963. It was meant to indicate the transitory or ephemeral nature of life and cycles. As we are now facing the end of a major economic, political and cultural cycle, the world is likely to experience a dramatic change which very few are prepared for. Interestingly, the peak of economic cycles often coincide with the peaks in climate cycles. At the height of the Roman Empire, which was when Christ was born, the climate in Rome was tropical. Then the earth got cooler until the Viking era which coincided with the dark ages. THE PROBLEM IS “THE ECONOMY STUPID” AND NOT THE CLIMATE Yes, of course global warming has taken place recently as the effect of climate cycles. But the cycle has just peaked again which means that all the global warming activists will gradually cool down with the falling temperatures in the next few decades. The sun and the planets determine climate cycles and temperatures, like they have for many millions of years, and not human beings. The climate activists are spending their efforts on the wrong issue. The big disaster looming for the world is not climate change but “the economy stupid” (phrase coined by Clinton). So let’s instead look at the real coming disaster that the world needs to focus on and a number of … Continue reading
