If There Ever Was a “Buy Low, Sell High” Play, This Is It

By Thursday, February 13, 2014

Only Place I See Value in this Stock Market TodayWhen it comes to investing, history has taught us one very important lesson: ideal buying opportunities are formed when there’s significant pessimism towards an investment. In other words, to make it really big, you need to have the guts to buy an investment when everyone else is selling it…when it’s completely out of favor with the majority of investors.

If Gold’s a Bad Investment, Why Is This Country Buying 150% More of It?

By Wednesday, January 15, 2014

150114_PC_lombardiI see more negativity towards gold bullion these days than ever before. And the more pessimism I hear and see, the more bullish I get on the precious metal.

After a bull market in gold bullion that lasted 12 straight years, 2013 was the correction year for gold bullion. It was the year that “separated the men from boys,” the investors from the speculators, when it came to gold bullion…. Read More

Two of My Favorite Gold and Silver Stocks

By Wednesday, October 9, 2013

gold stocksIf there ever was an environment illustrating how risky and tough resource investing can be, the current conditions for gold stocks are the textbook example.

Resource investing is a risk-capital only endeavor. When it comes to equities, resource-related stocks should never make up the core of a long-term investment portfolio. In almost all cases, even the fastest-growing, best-managed gold stocks still perform commensurately with the underlying spot price.

U.S. economyAs gold bullion prices declined in the period from April to June of this year, so did silver prices. And just like gold bullion, the bullish case for the white metal’s prices continues to build.

Demand for the white precious metal is not just robust; it is rising. The chart below compares sales of silver coins at the U.S. Mint in the months of January to July of 2012 and … Read More

Have Gold Stocks Bottomed Out?

By Wednesday, August 21, 2013

Gold Stocks BottomedOne basic rule of economics states that when the demand increases for an item and supply for that same item declines, its price usually increases. Let’s apply this to the gold market today.

Demand for gold bullion is exuberant. In spite of the decline in the price of the precious metal, we are seeing the continual buying of gold, not only by consumers, but also by central banks—the most conservative … Read More

Why the Prediction I Got Wrong Back Then Is So Vital Today

By Monday, July 15, 2013

stock market crashBack in late 2011, I created a widely circulated video that included six predictions. I hit it on the head with five of those predictions. But the winners are not what are important to my readers today; it’s the prediction I didn’t get right that’s vital now

Back then, I said the U.S. dollar was “dead” and wouldn’t go anywhere. I pointed out that if it were not for the … Read More

Is Now the Time to Ditch Gold or Buy More?

By Thursday, June 20, 2013

Time to Ditch Gold or Buy MoreAs many of you know, I’m not keen on the near-term prospects for gold at this juncture. The metal, while still viewed as a safe haven for some, is no longer on my buy list.

Yes, central banks are buying gold, but so what? The supply of the yellow ore continues to be ample, and demand really doesn’t appear to be doing anything.

In mid-April, I was bearish on gold … Read More

By Wednesday, April 17, 2013

Is Gold’s Near-Death Crisis Over-ExaggeratedCommodity prices have been heading lower on the charts.

In fact, it has been an awful few days for gold as prices plummeted, failing to hold $1,500 an ounce.

Prices dove right through support at $1,400 to $1,385.62 on Monday—the lowest level since 2011.

The shiny yellow ore is in a bear market. Down 27% from its magical peak of $1,920 in September 2011, it has been nothing but turmoil … Read More

Should You Buy Gold Stocks Right Now?

By Friday, February 1, 2013

Should You Buy Gold Stocks Right NowThere is a serious problem in the gold mining business these days, and it’s not because of the stagnant spot price. Costs are going up industry-wide, and it is making buying gold stocks much less attractive.

Gold prices have been in consolidation for about a year and a half, and I feel they should experience an upward breakout later this year. But cash costs per ounce are going up, and … Read More
