Look at These Big Capital Gains in Gold and Silver Stocks

Big Capital Gains in Gold and Silver StocksGold and silver prices are going up, and it’s a great time to be back in the precious metals sector. Gold and silver stocks corrected significantly, along with spot prices this year, and a lot of value developed among the best stocks in the sector. Both gold and silver prices were due for a correction; gold more so than silver.

Gold and silver stocks corrected significantly more than the percentage change in spot prices and then, like magic, the entire sector turned around on a dime, due to the market’s hope for a third round of quantitative easing (QE3). And while the global economic reality is beginning to set into the minds of investors, the fundamentals for both gold and silver continue to be excellent.

No matter what happens to the U.S. economy in 2013, the U.S. dollar is very likely to be under continued pressure because of all the fiscal headwinds. While no policymaker will admit it, a weaker U.S. dollar is exactly what the Federal Reserve wants, in the hope of stimulating exports and keeping liquidity high. And, as we all know, a weaker U.S. dollar compared to other benchmark currencies is a boon to gold and silver prices. The U.S. dollar outlook is the biggest near-term catalyst for higher precious metal prices. There are so many other fundamental factors that favor $2,000 gold and $40.00 silver, and Wall Street is starting to jump on the bandwagon.

We just had a great new entry point for new positions in gold and silver stocks this past summer; countless good mining companies hit 52-week lows, as the entire group was virtually abandoned by institutional investors. (See “Gold Stocks Becoming a Great Value in This Market.”) The stock chart below illustrates the sharp turnaround:

  • The Two Most Important Pictures Investors Will See This Year

    Within the next 90 days, a new economic catastrophe will be headed our way.

    It will blindside most Americans. And this time, the government and the Federal Reserve will not be able to help.

    It will cause a surge in personal bankruptcies and massive layoffs. It will make the recession of 2008 pale in comparison.

    It will crash retirement plans: I'm talking stocks, bonds, maybe even your own bank account.

    To get a firsthand look at what we're so worried about now, a catastrophe that has already been set in motion, I urge you to...

The recent price reversal in gold and silver stocks is a good reminder that resource stocks are an attractive group for traders, and you really can buy low and sell high if you get the timing right. Below is the stock chart of IAMGOLD Corporation (NYSE/IAG), a gold company that recently experienced a 50% capital gain since July, based on the market’s new positive sentiment:

Today’s stock market has an underlying strength to it, and there’s a different tone in the marketplace. Investors are buying stocks at this time based on renewed hope for the future. Hope that QE3 will somehow work; hope that things won’t get worse; and hope that corporations can squeeze out some earnings growth. When this party ends, I believe gold and silver will stand-alone with strong price resilience. Gold and silver prices are going up.

The Great Crash of 2014

A stock market crash bigger than what happened in 2008 and early 2009 is headed our way.

In fact, we are predicting this crash will be even more devastating than the 1929 crash…

…the ramifications of which will hit the economy and Americans deeper than anything we’ve ever seen.

Our 27-year-old research firm feels so strongly about this, we’ve just produced a video to warn investors called, “The Great Crash of 2014.”

In case you are not familiar with our research work on the stock market:

In late 2001, in the aftermath of 9/11, we told our clients to buy small-cap stocks. They rose about 100% after we made that call.

We were one of the first major advisors to turn bullish on gold.

Throughout 2002, we urged our readers to buy gold stocks; many of which doubled and even tripled in price.

In November of 2007, we started begging our customers to get out of the stock market. Shortly afterwards, it was widely recognized that October 2007 was the top for stocks.

We correctly predicted the crash in the stock market of 2008 and early 2009.

And in March of 2009, we started telling our readers to jump into small caps. The Russell 2000 gained about 175% from when we made that call in 2009 to today.

Many investors will find our next prediction hard to believe until they see all the proof we have to back it up.

Even if you don’t own stocks, what’s about to happen will affect you!

I urge you to be among the first to get our next major prediction.
See it here now in this just-released alarming video.
