Spot Gold Is Going Down, But Attractive
Stock Market Opportunities Are Going up

By | May 14, 2012

precious metalsThe stock market and a number of commodities are in correction and this is no surprise at all. I want to repeat my view that all kinds of solid, growing gold mining companies are becoming very attractively priced right now and, as a sector, it’s worth putting gold stocks on your radar screen.

It’s a bit too early to jump right in with the spot price of gold likely to … Read More

Best Play for 2012: The Gold Mining Stocks

By | December 14, 2011

Over the past three trading days, gold bullion has lost roughly $100.00 an ounce. This correction is good medicine! The speculators who got into gold late are being taught a lesson. The weak money is leaving gold. This is exactly the type of healthy correction in the 10-year bull market in gold that I’ve been waiting for!

10-year Strategy of Buying Gold Stocks When Gold Bullion Moves Lower in Price Still Working

By | November 18, 2011

There is one strategy investors have (or at least this investor has) been following for 10 years to make money in this treacherous market. The strategy is quite elementary. Every time the price of gold bullion moves down three percent, I like to go in and buy more gold-related investments. This strategy has worked for 10 years and I still see the opportunity continuing in buying gold stocks when the yellow metal has sharp, one-day corrections.

Investing in Gold with a Spot Price Near its Record—Time to Buy High & Sell Higher

By | November 10, 2011

In turns out that gold stocks are resuming their upward price trend in an environment where the spot price is ticking close to its all-time record. Gold stocks are the place to be if you’re a stock market speculator and if you believe that investing in gold will be fruitful in a slow growth environment. Nobody can with any real expertise predict where the spot price of gold will trade in the future, but all the fundamentals continue to line up. Investing in gold is something that I really believe in.

Precious Metals Mergers About to Take Off

By | October 21, 2011

Gold bugs are feeling the pain, as precious metals continue with their slower-economic-growth correction. As well, the prospect of action on the Europe debt crisis is tempering the marketplace’s appetite for gold futures. My view is that gold and silver continue to represent some of the most attractive assets going forward over the next several years. We’re in a market where new trends take a long time to develop and we’ll likely see the spot price of gold trade around $1,600 an ounce for quite a while yet.

Answered: Can I Still Make
Money Buying Gold Now?

By | October 19, 2011

Most investors likely fall into one of these three categories: They likely haven’t bought gold investments yet and they are thinking it may be too late to get in. Or they have bought gold investments and they are wondering if they should by more at these prices. Or, like me, they take as many opportunities as possible to buy more gold investments each time the price of gold bullion pulls back.

Gold: Getting Ready for
the Coming Correction

By | September 2, 2011

I’ve learned many things about investing over a career that has spanned 30 years. One of the biggest lessons is that not a single investment goes either straight up or straight down. When an investment is rising in price (bull market), there are usually dips and corrections on the way up. Just look at the long-term secular bull market in stocks that started in the early 1980s and ended in 2007—there were many times stocks “took it on the chin” during that 25-year bull market run.

The Best Bet in Town—Resources—Getting Ready for the Big Squeeze

By | August 29, 2011

The key in this bear market with stocks is to stick with resource stocks if you’re a speculator. I like large, blue-chip companies that pay high dividends for long-term investors. For risk-capital equity traders, the best action remains with gold stocks, and some of the best value now is in oil.

The Only Asset Worth Betting on—You
Guessed It! This Story’s Just Getting Started

By | August 12, 2011

If this is the decade of the commodity, then the single most attractive area for equity speculators remains the gold-mining business. The entire industry is swimming in cash, while spot prices and physical demand for precious metals remain strong. Gold, silver and copper have been holding up exceedingly well, as the rest of the stock market corrects. And it isn’t just the store of value argument or the so-called haven status of gold; the fact of the matter is that the global supply of the commodity is relatively unchanged, while demand (particularly from India and China) is going up.

New Higher Margin Requirement
for Gold an Investor Opportunity

By | August 11, 2011

After months of patient waiting, the gold stocks came to life yesterday. Right across the board, whether it was junior or senior gold producers, the stock prices of gold companies were up sharply Wednesday. Hopefully, my readers have been following my guidance and seeking refuge in the gold-mining companies. Since the spring of this year, gold bullion prices have been rising sharply, while gold stocks stood pat. I have been writing that the leaders of the gold bull market would shift from the actual bullion to the gold stocks, and that’s what started happening Wednesday.
