Treasuries, Gold, Oil and Stocks with Rick

Rick joins pinch-hitting host Chris Temple to discuss the markets as we begin this holiday-shortened week.  While crude oil may be in for more trouble, Rick generally sees the upward momentum for Treasuries and gold — and even U.S. stocks — continuing.

    We all recognize that bond cycles can be 30 to 40 years long, but all things do change.

    How can a debt problem be solved by adding more debt?
    Ultimately can this not have to lead to a monetary collapse?
    We have never had a reserve currency in history create seemingly unlimited money, but how can this not finally lead to inflation?

    I know money velocity is low, but can it be kept low as central bank balances grow?

      Since fiat currencies are just money substitutes (claims on wealth but not wealth itself), Goodman’s equation is a great one, in my opinion. However, I base my investment decisions on more than just an asset’s nominal valuation so I would look at other valuation relationships as well.

      Gold is not cheap now in real terms but since it is very cheap relative to the dollar (and USD denominated debt), it will remain my first choice for savings/wealth storage.

    Aurcana has been on the move lately. It is good to see them started to get re-rated and for the marketplace to wake up to the opportunity of their fully permitted and build TX mine, now that their restructuring is complete.

    Aurcana Corporation (AUNFF)
    0.3481 Up 0.0892(34.44%) 12:38PM EDT

    Maybe the marketplace is starting to follow up on these turnaround stories like Aurcana, Jaguar Mining, Alexco, Nicola Mining, Aureus, and Luna Gold. I love getting in these sleeper stocks early when everyone has left them for dead, but forgets about the real value tied up in their assets. When the marketplace finally does evaluate their idled projects, permits in place, and infrastructure on site, then their share prices can jump substantially on that “Ah Ha” moment.

    • On July 5, 2016 at 10:27 am,
      CFS says:

      I agree, Excelsior, there are many stocks that have had tens of millions of dollars spent on exploration, that went down as the tide went out, and which will rise disproportionately as the tide comes back in.

      • On July 5, 2016 at 10:47 am,
        Excelsior says:

        Absolutely, there are many great exploration companies that have been thrown out with the rest of the sector, but what impresses me about the companies listed above is that they actually have infrastructure built, and have fully built mines or mills that are on standby waiting for higher prices. They were sold down way below their peers just because they put projects on hold (rather than continuing to mine ore at a loss). In the interim, these companies have trimmed the fat, optimized recovery rates, and are ready to rock n’ roll when prices come back.

        I expect many will pop substantially when they announce they are going back into production. In Alexco’s case they also have the environmental business, Jaguar has operating mines – but still has the 3rd mining complex on standby, and Nicola Mining just starting tolling ore from other mines, but still has it’s mine on standby. Luna Gold and Aurcana were producing from their mines, but put them on care and maintenance when metal prices dropped…..but now that metals prices are creeping higher…… (as far as the restarts it’s not a question of “If?”; it’s a question of When?)

            Apparently I’m a day behind you with my excitement, because many of my stocks in the OTC were up very nicely today, (because of the catch up to primary tickers from yesterday). Maybe tomorrow both sets of tickers will be green at the same time….

        0.1640 0.1317 0.1567 0.1817

        Sandstorm’s royalty partner Luna Gold (OTCPK:LGCUF) has entered into an exploration agreement with large-cap gold miner AngloGold Ashanti (NYSE:AU), a $6+ billion gold miner which is the third-largest gold miner in the world based on production volume, as it produced close to 4 million ounces of gold in 2015.

        AngloGold will explore the greenfields mineral claims (1,702 square kilometers) surrounding Luna Gold’s past-producing Aurizona gold mine in Northern Brazil.

        Under the terms of the agreement, AngloGold has the ability to invest $14 million in exploration expenses over a four year period, including a minimum of $2 million in the first year; if it spends the full $14 million, it will earn a 70% interest in the minerals claims.

          Nice. Thanks for the update on the AngloGold Ashanti JV.

          Yes, I felt good with Sandstorm having their back,and most don’t realize that Sandstorm has already turned a profit on this transaction. Initially Sandstorm took it in the shorts when Luna had challenges at the Aurizona mine, but after restructuring things, they came out just fine. Nolan Watson discussed this in some interview with Kitco at PDAC, and clarified their position and belief in the project in the mid to long-term.

            Marc Leduc, President and CEO, stated, “We are very happy to have one of the largest gold producers in the world, AngloGold Ashanti, join us in this exploration project. This clearly demonstrates the outstanding geological potential of the greenfields claims. In the current difficult market of the gold industry, AngloGold Ashanti has committed a considerable amount of funds to our exploration areas and our prospective ground. We are happy to team up with AngloGold Ashanti who have considerable exploration experience in similar Precambrian geological
            terranes and an outstanding track record as one of the best mine operators in Brazil.”

            He also added, “This exploration agreement will also allow Luna to focus on the redevelopment and restart of the Aurizona Gold Mine while maintaining a significant exploration program in the greenfields areas.”

Most of the restaurants and businesses we went to in the downtown were under 5 years old and they were gutting the old buildings, renovating, and doing new build outs on about 20 other commercial spaces on Kings street. There were about 7 cranes doing construction projects on Friday, so I believe it will emerge in the next 5-7 years with a new identity.
