Signals for the Coming Crash in Stocks and Rally in Gold

Signals for the Coming Crash in Stocks and Rally in Gold- David Brady,CFA(19/09/2018) By David Brady, CFA Sept 19,2018 The U.S. imposed new tariffs on China this week that were close to the worst possible scenario, despite mainstream media comments to the contrary. The fact that China responded with nothing more than 5-10% tariffs on $60bln of U.S. imports soothed the markets, and stocks rallied. The mistake being made, however, is that China is unlikely done retaliating just yet, and there is likely more to come. What is clear is that neither side is willing to back down in this trade war, so it is probably going to get worse. This is why I still see a risk of higher USD/CNY (despite recent comments from the Chinese Premier to the contrary) and lower Gold prices ahead. The bigger question is: when does it all end? When does Gold finally bottom … Continue reading

September 19, 2017 By Dudley Pierce Baker   Rick Rule – You Want A Piece of Rick Rule? or perhaps more correctly, How to Invest in Rick Rule If you have ever attended a resource conference in the United States or Canada you must know the name Rick Rule.

Resource Sector – Time to Sell or Double Down

Resource Sector – Time to Sell or Double Down?

I believe most would agree that the resource sector presents the most challenging investment climate for investors.

Timing is everything as you buy and sell and frankly, you better get it correct or at least very close to correct. Entering the market buying shares or stock warrants in mining companies too early sets one up for great disappointment and periods of depression. You might look up and see your positions down 10%, 20%, 50% or more.

The seasoned investor knows this game and while we do not like it, it is sometimes part of the process of investing in this space. This is truly an art, so to speak, of picking your preferred companies and time the entry of your buying.

Why do we continue to invest in this space is a frequent question. The answer is simple in that when we succeed in picking the correct companies and the markets are in a bull market, great gains of hundred’s or thousand’s of percent can be achieved.

Today, gold, silver and shares are being sold by investors, begging the question is it time to sell or double down? For me, the answer for investors is to be patient, (even with your losing positions). If you sell now your loses are real with no chance of those large upside gains in the future. It is an individual decision whether to double down, but in my opinion, if you still like the companies in which you have invested, it makes perfect sense at this particular time.

Even most of the best companies shares have sold off in this market decline, sort of ‘throwing the baby out with the bath water’ theory, but don’t allow yourself to be part of this philosophy. Be smart, hold tight and/or buy more shares and/or stock warrants in those companies which you like and see great upside potential.

One of the most savvy investors in the resource sector is our friend, Rick Rule. Rick in this month’s issue of Resource World gives his opinion of this very subject and it is a great read for all investors.

Contrarian investor Rick Rule shares his winning strategies

Today the markets are presenting resource investors with a true contrarian investment philosophy, this is not the time to run.

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 in the junior mining companies and I am on the hunt for new additions to my portfolio.

There are many interesting opportunities in stocks as well as the stock warrants available today, so if you not a current  subscriber, LET’S GET YOU STARTED NOW.

The next several years, 2017 – 2020 will see some exciting times in the PM sector and I am looking to make
a fortune. Do you want to follow me? Let’s have some fun and make money together.

Rick Rule: I Am Too Wise To Call A Bottom In Mining

POSTED ON OCTOBER 26, 2015 BY COLLIN KETTELL Is the bottom in? Rick has seen too many cycles to answer a question like that. Despite the many claims, truth is, nobody knows yet. But his previous call for a potential capitulation in October is likely off the table. Mr. Rule has dedicated his entire adult life to many aspects of natural resources securities investing. In addition, to the knowledge and experience gained in a long, successful and focused career, he has a worldwide network of contacts in the natural resource and finance worlds. As Chairman of Sprott US Holdings, Mr. Rule leads a team of earth science and finance professionals who are experienced with resource investment management. Talking points of this week’s interview – • Is there more upside or downside? • How a US dollar rally will impact the latest rally in miners? • What type of move off the … Continue reading

Your Video Recording of Casey’s GOING VERTICAL Is Ready

Click here to watch GOING VERTICAL  (( 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 … Continue reading

Rick Rule on slow junior mining stocks

The Daily Bell

Rick Rule

Introduction: Rick Rule, founder of Global Resource Investments, began his career in the securities business in 1974 and has been principally involved in natural resource security investments ever since. He is a leading American retail broker specializing in mining, energy, water utilities, forest products and agriculture. Rule’s company has built a national reputation for its specialist expertise in taking advantage of global opportunities in the oil and gas, mining, alternative energy, agriculture, forestry and water industries.

Daily Bell: Thanks for spending some time with us. Let’s revisit and update some questions from previous interviews with you. Provide readers with a bit of background. You began as a broker. When did you go out on your own and why?

Rick Rule: I guess I really and truly went out on my own in 1991 when I formed my own brokerage firm, which was called Global Resource Investments. To avoid liable and slander charges, I won’t talk about all the experiences that lead me to believe that I could only trust my clients to myself rather than to other firms. It suffices to say, I decided I could serve my clients better on my own than in any other prior arrangements I had with financial services providers.
