Gold And Silver Stock Picking Is Key To Success

Gold And Silver Stock Picking Is Key To Success

It’s not an understament to say that gold and silver stocks are historically cheap. The correct way of looking at it, is to measure the value of the leading gold stock indexes by one ounce of gold. Below are long term charts of two gold stock indexes: the HUI and Barron’s Gold Mining Index. They are both measured in gold based on the spot price of September 7th, 2012. Chart courtesy: Goldchartsrus.com Both charts tell the same story: only on exceptional occasions during the current powerful gold bull market have we seen such low valuations of gold and silver stocks.

Investors Preparing For QE3 As Gold and Silver Skyrocket

Silver (SLV) is breaking out past $30 and the trend is moving higher as the Fed signals that they are now ready to pull the trigger and boost the economy possibly as early as the next Open Market Meeting in the middle of September.  Silver is regaining the 200 day moving average on a breathtaking move.  Even though we have the general equity markets at record highs, economic conditions all around the world are not showing evidence of a recovery…yet.

Gold-Stock ETF Rising

Gold-Stock ETF Rising

As gold enters into a season of fundamental strength and what should be a powerful new upleg, there ought to be rekindled interest in gold stocks. In fact, if gold indeed rallies the gold-stock sector will likely see a much-more-powerful upleg than the metal considering how oversold it’s been. And one of the first places investors will go when they are drawn to this sector is the venerable GDX Gold Miners ETF. GDX was the first gold-stock ETF when it was born in 2006. And with net assets of nearly $8.0b, today it is the largest of its kind. GDX’s strong correlation history with gold has made it a popular […]

Gold in Stock Bears

Gold in Stock Bears

With the odds for a new stock bear growing, prudent contrarian investors are looking for bear-resistant destinations for their hard-earned capital. Plain old cash tops the list, as it will not only preserve wealth but increase its relative stock buying power as the markets grind lower. But why merely sideline capital if it can still be grown even during a stock bear? Gold has proven its ability to thrive in such markets. Last week I wrote an essay on the rising chances a new stock bear is looming. This primarily has to do with the bull-bear cycles. The stock markets endlessly march forward in a series of alternating bulls followed […]

Why Stock Selection in Gold Mining is Paramount

Why Stock Selection in Gold Mining is Paramount

As we alluded to last week, there is an overflowing amount of evidence that both the metals and the shares have bottomed. Price action, sentiment indicators and fundamentals more than confirm a market bottom. Does this mean the market is ready to zoom much higher? Not necessarily. The sector must contend with some overhead supply as well as repair technical damage that caused a loss of both short and long-term momentum. Once the market forms higher highs and higher lows then its momentum can start to build. Until then, investors have some time to figure out which companies could be the big winners of the next cycle.By now, speculators and investors […]

Silver Undervalued

Silver Undervalued

After being sucked into the general commodities correction, silver has been relentlessly drifting lower since late February. But this weakness has forced the white metal down to a very bullish place technically. Silver is now quite undervalued compared to prevailing gold prices, its primary driver. Thus it has great potential to rally mightily in the coming months to regain much lost ground relative to gold. Silver is a fascinating commodity that has won a fanatical following among traders. It is extremely volatile, with big spikes or plunges always possible. This makes it irresistibly alluring to speculators, who alternately pile in to ignite huge rallies before running for the exits to […]
