Catching Up On A Sunday …Are You A Contrarian?


First I would like to share with you the news, that our sister company, Junior Mining News, just hit 5,000 followers on Twitter. A giant milestone for sure. Help us to keep growing by joining us on Twitter.com and at JrMiningNews.

As gold continues to languish below $1300 we remain optimistic on the upside potential of the resource sector.

Do not allow these times to put you to sleep.

There are many great opportunities which I see everyday and always wished I had more monies to invest. All investors and newsletter writers have this same problem, we can not buy everything or recommend everything.

Many of the positions that personally own, I would like to double up or triple up at these current prices. Some of these can be called ‘project generators’.  Project generators, own the properties but joint venture with other resource companies to perform the drilling and spending of monies. This greatly reduces the risk for these ‘project generators’ and in the next couple of years I see these companies being 10 baggers. But you need to own them or be buying them now.

If you decide to wait and buy high, you have just given up on the possibility of achieving 10 bagger potential.


YOU MUST BE A CONTRARIAN
 in order to make money in the resource sector and I know it is difficult to buy into some of these low priced shares, but do you homework, look at charts and always evaluate the insider positions.

I would never buy any shares in any company without knowing what the insiders are doing.

In my services, I provide a link to the current insider activity to assist my subscribers in making good decisions. For those Gold and Lifetime Subscribers which have access to my personal portfolio they will also get my comments in my weekly Thursday audio.

For me, there is only one way to play this ‘game’ by investing in quality junior mining companies and/or long-term stock warrants trading on those companies.

If you are not familiar with stock warrants, you can receive The Stock Warrant Handbook for FREE by visiting, http://CommonStockWarrants.com along with more freebies.

However, many investors are finding great opportunities with warrants on the U.S. stocks in other sectors, biotechs, pharmaceuticals, banking, blank check companies, 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.

ONLY CONTRARIANS WILL SURVIVE

Posted on November 3, 2017 by Egon von Greyerz We are currently standing before one of the most unique and frightening periods in history. Never have there been so many extremes in so many different areas. In the last 100 years everything seems to have developed so much faster, including population, technology, inflation, debt, money printing, budget deficits, stock, bond and property prices, crypto currencies etc. All of these areas are now in an exponential growth phase. The final stage of exponential growth is explosive and looks like a spike that goes straight up. A spike for a major sample like global population or the Dow never finishes with just a sideways move. Once a spike move has finished, it always results in a spike move down. It seems that everything in the world is developing much faster today like computers and mobile phones or robots. The world assumes that this … Continue reading

Analysis: NAFTA Is Dead — Act Accordingly

 

 

 

BY VINCENT LAUERMAN – 

 

“’Tis he who fight and run away. Live to fight another day.”

Lyric from song “The Heathen”

Bob Marley, TIME magazine’s most influential artist of the second half of the 20th century

The North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) is dead. Unreasonable demands by U.S. trade negotiators, obviously at the behest of President Donald Trump, recently put the final nails in its coffin. The Trudeau government now has a choice. It can accept this reality and make the best of a bad situation or it can fight the inevitable and risk a Trump trade tantrum. The latter would likely have a far greater negative impact on the Canadian economy, and our oil and gas industry as well.

President Trump has made it abundantly clear that he wants to ‘tear up’ the NAFTA treaty with Canada and Mexico, on the campaign trail and since its renegotiations began on August 16. But Canadians and Mexicans should not take his NAFTA stance too personally, as there are numerous international treaties, agreements and organizations that he does not seem to like.

Since being inaugurated president on January 20, Trump has implemented U.S. withdrawal from the Trans Pacific Partnership and UNESCO, and decertified the Iran nuclear deal despite the International Atomic Energy Agency and all other parties to the 2015 Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action claiming Iran to be in compliance. President Trump does not like to let facts get in the way of his ‘America first’ agenda.

On October 17, the chief negotiators for Canada and the U.S. traded barbs at the joint news conference in Arlington, Virginia at the end of the fourth round of the NAFTA renegotiation. Canadian Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland accused the U.S. of deliberately attempting to undermine NAFTA by adding a number of ‘unconventional’ proposals over the last two rounds of talks. “In some cases, these proposals run counter to World Trade Organization rules,” Freeland said. In response, U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer said: “Frankly, I am surprised and disappointed by the resistance to change from our negotiating partners on both fronts.”

But according to one non-U.S. official at the talks, Lighthizer and his team have been ‘sheepish’ in presenting their more extreme trade proposals, and they say, “We don’t have any flexibility on this.” These proposals include: a sunset clause that could end NAFTA after five years; an end to the binational trade dispute mechanism; the dismantling of the quota system for Canadian dairy; a requirement of at least 50 per cent U.S. content for automobiles produced in North America; and strict Buy American rules for the U.S. government.

The cost of a straightforward collapse of NAFTA would be substantial for Canada, but not catastrophic. Based on a preliminary estimate by Dan Ciuriak, now associated with the C.D. Howe Institute, an end to the trade pact would ultimately slice 2.5 per cent from the country’s economy, with the initial shock possibly worse presumably due to disruptions to integrated North American supply chains.

On the relatively bright side for a rather perverse reason, natural resources have become an increasingly large part of Canadian exports since the turn of the century, while Canada tends to be the preferred supplier for such products into the U.S. given our transportation cost advantage — NAFTA or no NAFTA. According to The Conference Board of Canada, the average value of Canadian exports declined from $964 per tonne in 2001 to just over $800 per tonne in 2012 (adjusted for inflation), reflecting a relatively large increase in the export of bulk commodities.

In contrast, if the Trudeau government decides to fight back it could lead to a messy NAFTA divorce, substantially increasing the cost to Canada if notoriously vindictive President Trump decides to punish us with additional tariffs, quotas and other trade barriers.

Prior to the NAFTA renegotiation, Derek Burney, one of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s key trade advisors — harkening back to an age prior to the U.S. Shale Revolution — said that Canada was willing to use our oil and gas exports to the U.S. as a ‘trump card’ if the Trump administration plays hardball. The end result of such an approach would likely be a big bullseye on our oil and gas industry, at a minimum, since there is a huge difference between hardball and no ball.

Instead, the Trudeau government should take this ‘opportunity’ to further deepen U.S.-Canada energy relations. U.S. Energy Secretary Rick Perry made it abundantly clear in the months prior to the start of the NAFTA renegotiation that he would like Canada and Mexico to forge a North American energy strategy with his country. Mexico is becoming an increasingly important market for U.S. natural gas and petroleum products, but Mexican Economy Minister Ildefonso Guajardo has indicated that his country’s ‘Plan B’ would intentionally avoid importing American goods in retaliation for a NAFTA collapse.

In this case, Canada could easily appear the good neighbour while serving our own interests by ‘guaranteeing’ the export of our oil and gas to the U.S. market. The Trudeau government could even offer to do so on a proportional basis in case of emergency — in line with NAFTA’s current ‘proportionality clause’ – in return for a guarantee to not tax or otherwise impede our energy exports, including electricity.

Besides encouraging the Trudeau government to deepen our energy relationship with the U.S., and to not use oil and gas as a bargaining chip, the Alberta government should do all in its power to push TransCanada’s Keystone XL pipeline forward as quickly as possible in an attempt to keep the project from being caught in NAFTA or post-NAFTA crossfire.

Both the federal and Alberta governments strolled into the NAFTA renegotiation with a great deal of naivety. Prime Minister Trudeau regularly referred to it as a ‘modernization.’ Yes, there are aspects of modernization included in the negotiations, such as a new chapter on digital economy, but mostly the renegotiation has been a case of President Trump taking Canada and Mexico to the woodshed to advance his ‘America first’ agenda.

At the start of the NAFTA talks Alberta Minister of Economic Development and Trade Deron Bilous said that Canada’s oil and gas industry has nothing to worry about because U.S. lawmakers understand the importance of an integrated energy market. He may be right, unless the Trudeau government gets it wrong again, and President Trump decides to retaliate.

To conclude, it is best the Canadian government minimizes the negative impact of a NAFTA collapse today, and wait to rebuild trade relations with President Trump’s successor tomorrow.

Junior Mining News Agrees With Hedge Fund – Paulson & Co.

        Nicole Mordant #COMMODITIES SEPTEMBER 26, 2017 / 1:40 PM Hedge fund Paulson & Co declares war on poor gold mining returns (Reuters) – New York-based Paulson & Co, led by longtime gold bull John Paulson, called on Tuesday for the world’s biggest investors in gold-mining stocks to form a coalition to tackle miners’ “dreadful” performance. Speaking at the Denver Gold Forum, the industry’s top annual event, Paulson & Co partner Marcelo Kim launched the blistering attack on the sector, saying the hedge fund was looking for fellow founding members for a body to speak out on issues including high executive pay, cozy board appointments and value-destroying mergers and acquisitions. “If we don’t do anything to change, then as investors we will continually be disappointed with shareholder returns and the industry will slowly dig itself into a hole of irrelevance and oblivion,” Kim told a packed room … Continue reading

How To Recycle A Lithium Battery – A Buy Recommendation TSXV:AMY

Almost daily we hear stories out of the automobile manufacturers, Ford, Volvo, General Motors, and of course, Telsa, giga-battery factories, etc. of the ongoing evolution of autos going to lithium ion batteries in the very near term. The advantages are many………. However, I see virtually nothing in the press about how all of these lithium ion batteries used in the autos will be recycled. Is everyone overlooking this critical issue? I know of only one company that is on the cutting edge of this recycling issue and can be bought for pennies. This company has presented at numerous investment events and has had attracted a lot of interests from some of the big players.

Do you really want $5,000 to $10,000 gold?

Dudley Pierce Baker Guadalajara/Ajijic, Mexico email: support@CommonStockWarrants.com website: www.CommonStockWarrants.com It’s Time to Buy Gold as Insurance. Investors in the resource sector are starting to lick their chops at the prospects of $5,000 to $10,000 gold within the next few years or perhaps sooner. Mining shares and especially the junior mining and exploration companies should soar in price with many 10 baggers, 20 baggers and more. However, do you really think gold is going to $5,000 just because? Will we really like what we see in the world? Probably not. This old world is getting pretty scary right now with the world political events, the North Korean situation, the U.S. Dollar declining, etc. Yes, I do believe that we will see $5,000 plus gold and yes, we should all make many, many dollars from our investments. Remember that most of the big boys, Frank Holmes, Rick Rule, Doug Casey and others always preach … Continue reading
