Hedge Fund Managers Pour SALT on U.S. Stocks, Look to Europe

click to enlarge Now, however, some are wondering if Trump, embroiled in numerous scandals, will finish out his term. A few SALT presenters even uttered the “i” word. Jim Chanos, founder and investment manager of Kynikos Associates in New York, told the packed auditorium that he believes the market hopes Vice President Mike Pence will become president. Investors are seeking deregulation and tax cuts, plain and simple, Chanos said, and the “more stable” Pence is seen as having a better shot at delivering. This squares with reports from British gambling and betting company Ladbrokes, which announced last week that Trump is now odds-on, or highly likely, to Europe is back on the map. That was one of the main takeaways last week from the SkyBridge Alternatives (SALT) hedge fund conference in Las Vegas, where $3 trillion in assets was represented. Speaker after speaker touted European equities for their attractive valuations … Continue reading

How to Bulletproof Your Portfolio, Part 2

By Alexander Green In my last column, I discussed the many uncertainties facing investors today. Just a few things that no one can predict with any certainty are economic growth, inflation, currency values, commodity prices, scientific discoveries, technological breakthroughs, bull and bear markets, election outcomes and future legislation. That’s before we get to possible bolts out of the blue: a major terrorist attack, a hedge fund blowup, war in the Middle East, an epic natural disaster (think California quake, the big one), a crippling cyberattack, or something we haven’t even considered. For all these reasons, it makes sense to take 10 proven steps to bulletproof your portfolio. In my last column, I covered the basics: saving more, asset allocating properly, rebalancing annually, and avoiding the siren song of the economic forecasters and market timers. Here are the final five steps that will wrap your nest egg in Kevlar… 6. Cut … Continue reading

Stock Life Cycles and Maximizing Profits

Source: Clive Maund for The Gold Report 05/22/2017 Technical analyst Clive Maund describes the life cycle of stocks, and pinpoints the stage in the cycle that is optimal for investment. Stocks are like living things. They are born, grow, mature, age and decline and then die, or are reborn, which reflects the fact that the companies on which they are based do likewise. This should not be so surprising since companies are comprised of people. Whole industries come and go as a result of the evolution of technology and changing fashions. A simple example of this is provided by the music industry, where first you had vinyl, then cassettes, then CDs and now the industry is moving to downloads, with vinyl making a niche comeback. If you as a company had insisted on continuing to produce music on vinyl or on cassettes, you would have gone the way of the … Continue reading

Is the Gold Correction Over?

Source: Rudi Fronk and Jim Anthony for The Gold Report 05/22/2017 With confidence in the post-election “Trump inflation trade” waning, Rudi Fronk and Jim Anthony, cofounders of Seabridge Gold, set out their thesis for the end of the current correction in the gold market. On balance, we think the gold correction is over. There are still some small flies in the ointment; the gold stocks are underperforming gold. . .a negative divergence that is often a sign of weakness. . .and the speculative positioning on Comex is neutral rather than bullish. Silver is underperforming when it usually leads to the upside. On the plus side, the spot gold chart looks good at this point. The price is now above both the 50 dma (50-day moving average) and the 200 dma. The 50 dma crossed above the 200 dma last Wednesday for the first time since falling below it back in … Continue reading

Drilling begins on property adjacent to 125,000-oz Kyrgyzstan gold mine

By analyst By Andrew Topf Kenadyr Mining (TSXV: KEN) has started drilling the South Zone of its Borubai concession in the Kyrgyz Republic, hoping to capitalize on the property’s close proximity to a gold mine that in 2015 was opened by one of China’s largest gold producers. Vancouver-based Kenadyr said last week that initial drilling is designed to intersect an area which was previously drilled in the former Soviet republic between 1970 and 1990, and which found significant gold mineralization. “We look forward to retesting this area, to confirm the high grade results reported from previous drilling”: Dr. Alexander Becker, Kenadyr’s CEO According to a project page on its website, 81,838 metres of historical drilling has been done on the 164-square-kilometre Borubai license, with several large gold anomalies which have yet to be tested. Kenaydr drilled reverse-circulation holes in 2016 to confirm the previous exploration work. “The South Zone is … Continue reading

Kinross sells White Gold District properties for approx. C$60 million

By analyst By Andrew Topf Map of White Gold Corp’s properties in the Yukon, courtesy of the company. Kinross Gold (TSX:K,NYSE:KGC) has unloaded all five of its properties in the Yukon White Gold District to newly formed company White Gold Corp (TSXV:WGO) in a cash and share deal worth around C$60 million. The origins of the arrangement go back to December 2016, when Agnico-Eagle Mines ((TSX,NYSE:AGM) announced it bought a stake in thousands of mining claims in the White Gold District originally owned by Shawn Ryan, the Yukon prospector whose unique soil sampling method turned him into a millionaire almost overnight. Agnico Eagle, which owns half of the Canadian Malarctic gold mining operation in Quebec and also has the Meadowbank open-pit gold mine in Nunavut, northern Canada, bought 19.9% of the shares in a new company, White Gold Corporation, for $14.52 million. “The acquisition adds significant exploration potential to our … Continue reading

This Week on Wall Street: Trump Impeachment Worries Spook Equity Markets

By Samuel Taube Let’s be frank. The phrase “Trump impeachment” probably makes some of you very happy – and some of you very angry. That’s fine. I’m no pundit, and it’s not my job to challenge your political beliefs. But it is my job to help you navigate the financial markets in these unpredictable times. And whether you love it or hate it, the phrase “Trump impeachment” is getting a lot of usage in the lead-up to ex-FBI Director James Comey’s testimony in the next few weeks. It’s clearly on the minds of many investors. That’s why the three major U.S. equity indexes plummeted Wednesday amid concerns President Trump’s legislative agenda will be drowned in scandal. Should you follow the herd and panic-sell your stocks because of the chaos in Washington? Absolutely not. If anything, you should stay calm and do the opposite. As we’ll see below, the last two … Continue reading
