Based on cyclical analysis, technical analysis, fundamental analysis, and portfolio analysis, Petrov says the bottom for gold could be in already, but most likely will be behind us within one to seven months. That’s early to mid-2014, now rapidly approaching.
We first introduced Brazil Resources Inc. in the fall of 2012, when we applied Casey Research’s The Eight P’s of Resource Stock Evaluation to the company. We’ve decided to revisit this company, look at its progress over the past six months and explore some of the upcoming catalysts BRI has in store for the next 12 months.
The markets are tyrannically cyclical, every sector out of favor eventually returns to favor again and vice versa. That law of sentiment is as immutable as stock prices ultimately reflecting underlying corporate earnings. Based on today’s still-battered gold prices, a 0.511x HGR would put the HUI at 731. This is 157% higher than it was in the middle of this week even after recovering 3/7ths of its gold-panic losses!
Where are we in the bear cycle? Is the bottom in or could it get worse? As counterintuitive as it seems, it is only in times like these where seeds are being planted for once-in-a-decade future profits.

Founded in 2004, Silver Wheaton (SLW) is what is known as a metals streaming company. For SLW viewed overall, once one takes the time to review its business model, that business model is comparatively easy to understand. SLW can be said to be a different form of royalties company.
Rick Rule explains that the junior and exploration mining sector looks not very promising. His research framework reveals how to pick the winners. For investors, this all boils down to risk management, as only ten to twenty percent of the companies will do well.
This article presents the outlook for investing in resource markets in 2013. We consider Sprott Global Resource Investments the most respected company in resource investing. That’s why we bring the view of Rick Rule and Mishka Vom Dorp in this article. Rick Rule believes that junior markets overall will go (much) lower. He expects that 80% of the 4.000 junior exploration companies are non-viable. They will attempt to reach their intrinsic value, which is zero. Occasionally, however, we will witness pretty dramatic escalations. In addition, Rick Rules expects all sorts of amalgamations in the coming 24 to 36 months.
In order to satiate the world’s growing hunger for silver, a lot of pressure has been placed on its supply chain. And with total annual supply recently exceeding 31k metric tons (1.0b ounces) for the first time ever, the suppliers of this white metal have so far made a valiant effort to meet demand.
