A Corporate Debt Crisis Is Underway… And Nobody Cares By Justin Spittler Investors no longer give a damn. That might sound harsh, but when things are this backwards, you have to tell it like it is. You see, I read something recently that disturbed me. I had to pinch myself to make sure I wasn’t dreaming. It was an article I recently stumbled upon in Bloomberg. In it, the author explained how U.S. companies are issuing debt at breakneck speed. You see, U.S. companies have already issued more than $360 billion worth of investment-grade bonds just this year. Corporate America is now on pace to issue the most investment-grade debt in the first quarter since 1999. I don’t have to remind you how that ended… But here’s the really crazy part… Investors are lining up around the block to buy these bonds. If you read yesterday’s Dispatch, you know where … Continue reading →
How to Double Your Money 94% of the Time… By Justin Spittler Editor’s note: Today, we’re taking a break from our usual commentary to share a must-read piece with you. In the essay below, International Speculator editor Louis James pulls the curtain back on a money-making phenomenon. As you’ll see, this strategy has generated average gains of 133%. More impressively, it works almost 100% of the time. This is the first time we’ve shared this powerful secret with our readers. We hope you find this essay as eye-opening as we did. What would you say if I told you of an investment strategy that more than doubled your money within two years, 94% of the time? First, a confession. I’m about to tell you something that’s rather obvious. The phenomenon is well known. Despite that, I never did the math before. To my knowledge, no one has ever bothered, but … Continue reading →
I love to follow and listen to the legendary newsletter writers and analyst and am amazed that they tell investors some of the facts, but rarely all of the facts which investors need to know to make the best decisions.
Doug Casey was recently interviewed by Peter Spina of GoldSeek.com and SilverSeek.com and the complete interview below is around 20 minutes.
What caught my attention immediately was comments on two of the companies that Doug commented on favorably. These two Canadian gold companies have long-term warrants trading.
Why the hell would you not bring this to the attention of investors?
Good chance that he doesn’t know either.
As a subscriber to my CommonStockWarrants.com you would have immediately asked the same question. If you didn’t already own the stock warrants in either of these companies you could have at least considered them and would have access to all the particulars, i.e., expiration date, exercise price, current valuation (Undervalued, Overvalued or Fair Value), etc.
Many newsletter writers and analyst are good at bringing out the Macro picture for investors, BUT, if you are looking for and considering new investments you need more details and ideas.
Something to think about….

Five Ways to “Crash Proof” Your Portfolio Right Now By Justin Spittler The U.S. economy is running out of breath. As you probably know, the U.S. economy has been “recovering” since 2009. The current recovery, now seven years old, is one of the longest in U.S. history. It’s also one of the weakest. Since 2009, the U.S. economy has grown at just 2.1% per year, making this the slowest recovery since World War II. Last quarter, the economy grew at just 1.1%. We won’t know how the economy did during this quarter until late October. But we don’t expect good news, and that’s because signs of a stalling economy are everywhere. • They’re in the job market. The U.S. economy created 29,000 fewer jobs last month than economists expected. • They’re in corporate earnings. Profits for companies in the S&P 500 have been falling since 2014. • They’re even in the price of … Continue reading →
This Important Chart Shows Why Gold Could Hit $6,000 by 2019 By Justin Spittler Editor’s note: Today, in place of our usual market commentary, we have another important essay for you from International Speculator editor Louis James. Last week, Louis explained why it’s not too late to get in on the big gold boom right now, saying “I think we’re all about to make a pile of money.” Today, he shows you just how high gold could go as this bull market gains momentum. As you’ll see, right now is the ideal time to own gold stocks… Dear Reader, “You’re crazy, buying gold now!” That’s what one of my students said to me in the summer of 2008. I was teaching one of my seminars on entrepreneurship, that time in the Republic of Georgia. Gold had risen for seven years and was trading around $800 per ounce. This student was … Continue reading →
Why Doug Casey Thinks We Could See $5,000 Gold By Justin Spittler One of the world’s biggest central banks just swung its “sledgehammer.” On Thursday, the Bank of England (BoE) launched its biggest stimulus package since the 2008–2009 financial crisis. It cut its key interest rate to a record low. It started “printing” money again. And it announced a new “funding scheme.” The BoE launched this massive easy money program to soften the blow of the “Brexit.” As you probably heard, Britain voted to leave the European Union (EU) on June 23. The historic event rattled Britain’s financial system. The FTSE 100, Britain’s version of the S&P 500, fell 3.1% on the news. It was the worst day for British stocks since 2008. The pound sterling, Britain’s currency, plunged 8%, its biggest one-day drop on record. In the aftermath, many analysts predicted Britain’s economy would take a serious hit. Some … Continue reading →
Weekend Edition: Doug Casey on “Brexit” By Justin Spittler Editor’s note: It’s been a month since “Brexit”…the historic event that wiped out more than $3 trillion from the global stock market in two days. But what happens now? Today, Casey Research founder Doug Casey breaks down what the decision means for Britain…and how it foreshadows some big changes in the world at large. On June 23, the UK had a referendum in which 52% of voters opted to leave the European Union. I applaud Britain for leaving the corrupt, costly, and dysfunctional EU. It may be the best thing that’s happened to Europe since the end of World War 2. And, I think, it signals the start of some major new trends. In principle, the idea of the European Union sounded good. All the signatory countries joined a customs union so goods and people could flow freely. The idea was … Continue reading →
Doug Casey on President Hillary Clinton… World War III… and the Deep State By Nick Giambruno Will Hillary Clinton win in November and ensure the Deep State stays in control? I recently sat down with Casey Research founder Doug Casey to discuss this. Doug is a former classmate of Bill Clinton and has met him several times, including once at the White House. Doug shared his insights on why a Clinton win could accelerate the onset of World War III. We also touched on how Donald Trump will destroy the Republican Party… and why it’s a good thing. I think you’ll find our discussion insightful. Until next time, Nick Giambruno: There is a popular conception that only the “best and brightest” go into government. I think this is a sacred cow that needs to be slaughtered. What’s your take, Doug? Doug Casey: It’s a real problem when a pernicious myth … Continue reading →
The Blind Leading the Clueless By Jeff Thomas (Gregory Mankiw, an economics professor at Harvard, interviews Federal Reserve chief Janet Yellen.) Most of us watch television. In part, we seek to be entertained, but, additionally, we often seek to be enlightened as to “what’s going on.” In a difficult era like the present one, in which some of the most prominent countries are experiencing the onset of an economic crisis, virtual cartoon characters are competing as choices in political contests, governments are becoming increasingly rapacious and a police state is developing rapidly, it’s not surprising if the average person questions, “What on earth are they thinking?” Well, there’s no shortage of media exposure to answer that question. Today, there are a multitude of channels offering 24/7 “news,” from which we may hope to glean some insight as to what the leaders of the world are thinking. Yet, in spite of … Continue reading →
By Justin Spittler Bonds are no longer assets. They’re liabilities. You might find this hard to believe. After all, most folks think of bonds as a safe way to grow their money. For decades, you could make a decent return of 5% or more in government- and investment-grade bonds without risking big losses. Not anymore. These days, most bonds pay next to nothing. Some have negative interest rates, which means owners must pay interest on the bond instead of earning interest. If you own a bond that pays a negative interest rate, you’re guaranteed to lose money if you hold the bond to maturity. And yet, folks are lining up to buy these bonds. Dispatch readers know we’re in this mess because governments have gone mad trying to “stimulate” the economy. Central banks have cut rates more than 650 times since the 2008 financial crisis. Global rates are now … Continue reading →
