    MGN- It’s a shame this property got bogged down in 10 years of go nowhere permitting & landmines. The shareholders did not make out at all on this deal, Al, management was way to passive and the shareholders got hammered. David Morgan was touting MGN in 2002 at less than $1 and 14 years later, not much difference.

      I know nothing about the company, but that is hardly a fair comment.

      From the beginning of 2002, when as you say David Morgan was touting it, it rose from $0.05 to $9.70 in 2004, and $10.10 in 2006.

      From the low in 2008 to the high in 2011, it rose from $0.48 to $4.43. Since then, virtually every mining stock was a dud until Dec 2015 / Jan 2016. Since it’s Dec. 2015 low, it’s risen from $0.112 to a high of $1.62, currently $1.54.

      Plenty of opportunity to make a lot of $$ here, whether the quality of management has been good or bad.

          GH:

          Exactly right. If you don’t learn to take profits when you have them, the only other alternative is to take losses when you have to. MGN is a perfect example of the cycle of mining stocks. It went up and it went down. It went up again and it went down again. They all do the same thing. Trick is to buy when cheap and sell when dear.

          You can’t marry them, you have to trade them or get forced out.

            We have not really experienced monetary cycles of short duration in the US.
            Clearly Zimbabwe and Argentina have. The US economy is still one of the better economies and currencies, but I wonder if the US Dollar also see a cyclical behavior in future.
            Global debt is expanding so much, I wonder how much longer it can be serviced and whether we will start to see rotation between currencies, and thus cyclical monetary behavior.

            With banks issuing ever increasing credit defaults without sufficient reserves, we are going to have a significant problem in the future. Perhaps talking about a monetary cycle is incorrect in its name…..not so much a cycle as a collapse, or partial collapse.
            It worries me that neither Presidential candidate economically competent.
            Trump uses bluster and promotional salesmanship in his business deals or takes chapter 11.
            Clinton uses fraud or bribery or blackmail in her business deals. Neither inspire confidence in me or, judging by opinion poles, the majority of the population.
            It appears that many are considering precious metals, with no counter party risk as safety insurance. But the value of anything is usually determined by supply and demand and available money. In a collapse, where money is lost or disappears, what happens to the perception of the value of precious metals?
            Will there be enough people wanting to buy precious metals, when people who have lost money in a stock market or bond market collapse, are selling what they have in gold and silver to meet their other debt obligations or just to live?
            Diversification seems to be the safest bet.

        Hecla stole from MGN. No one mentioned abou taking or not taking gains. I can assure you since entering the sector in 1999 thanks to David Morgan & Puplavas Financialsense and most of all to the Don McAlvany Intelligence Advisor and a local CMT teacher, I’m 380% in the green in that sector and 264% since October 2015.

          You’ve had some awesome trades this year Marty. Keep up the great work.

          As for MGN, they languished with permitting and legal concerns for years, and finally came out and poked their head above water to catch their breath, and then got acquired by Hecla. Hecla has been in acquisition mode, but has been very aggressive about it. Just look at the stink with their Dolly Varden takeover, were DV felt like Hecla was backing them into a corner, hadn’t done a proper valuation, and was blocking their financing. They did a poison pill financing just to put a stop to it.

          I will say, over the last few years Hecla has continued to consolidate some of the better properties, and as a result, they have filled their pipeline of projects moving down the road the next few years. However, as you mentioned, the deal wasn’t so hot for MGN shareholders.

          It’s still a buyers market though, so if I was a Mid-tier with the means to do it, I’d buy up as many undervalued companies as possible over the next year, before they do more capital raises or have too much more share-price appreciation. I believe we’ll continue to see a number of mergers as the space consolidates for the multi-year bull run, especially if we get a fall pullback where the acquiring company can get the exploration or development company on sale.

          Cheers!

    Big Al, Cory,

    Thank you for brining Avi back. His technical views are extremely valuable – for whoever wants to spend the time to listen and try to understand his thought process.

    As you know, I often exchange w. Avi, so hopefully, many listeners will ALSO benefit from his current views.

    Lastly, I find it to be a very good idea to interview him on a late Friday afternoon (EST) as opposed to Thursday (often) in the past.

    My 2cts, and thanks again.

        Hello Bonzo,

        Hope you’re having a pleasant WE.

        1) Re: GDX, just keep an eye on the 29 level and 32.5.

        2) Re: OR and TAHO.
        a) I don’t “follow” them per se. However, I’ve owned OR in the past. Very skilled mgt.
        If gold goes where I think it goes in the next 3 yrs – disclaimer, I don’t need it to go to $2000 – then OR shareholders will do well from here, imho.
        b) TAHO, I’ve never owned it (never “took the time” to look at it).
        FWIW, it was recently (a few days ago) recommend by Casey Research in their CRI publication.
        As highlighted by Incakolanews in the past 24hrs (http://incakolanews.blogspot.fr/) TAHO has seriously underperformed the XAU over the past 2yrs. So sometimes, the underperformers catch up with the rest of the sector (capital rotation).
        Irrespectively, if silver goes where I think it is going in the next 3 yrs (translation: mid $30/Oz) then, imho, new TAHO shareholders at current prices are likely to do well.

        Hope this help.

        Best to you,

        LPG

They look like a very fine company too ands I bought a lot more this year@15. OCANF looks like a great company too and I bought more of it last week.

          Princeton Professor Shows How Easy it Is to Hack an Election in Just 7 Minutes

          A professor from Princeton University and a graduate student just proved electronic voting machines in the U.S. remain astonishingly vulnerable to hackers — and they did it in under eight minutes.

          In fact, Professor Andrew Appel and grad student Alex Halderman took just seven minutes to break into the authentic Sequoia AVC Advantage electronic voting machine Appel purchased for $82 online — one of the oldest models, but still in use Louisiana, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and Virginia, Politico reported.

          After Halderman picked the hulking, 250-pound machine’s lock in seven seconds flat, Appel wrested its four ROM chips from a circuit board — an easy feat, considering the chips weren’t soldered in place.

          Once freed, Appel could facilely replace the ROM chips with his own version “of modified firmware that could throw off the machine’s results, subtly altering the tally of votes, never to betray a hint to the voter,” Politico’s Ben Wofford explained.

          Appel and a team of other so-called cyber-academics have hacked into various models of electronic voting machines in order to prove to the public the equipment is ridiculously bereft of security. Together with Ed Felten, Appel and a group of Princeton students “relentlessly hacked one voting machine after another … reprogramming one popular machine to play Pac-Man; infecting popular models with self-duplicating malware; [and] discovering keys to voting machine locks that could be ordered on eBay.”

          Their efforts have gone largely ignored for 15 years.

    On June 5, 2014 when the ECB officially announced that the rate on its deposit facility would go negative, we posted “NIRP Has Arrived: Europe Officially Enters The “Monetary Twilight Zone.” However, while NIRP has already led to a dramatic upheaval across Europe’s economies as a result of a perfectly “unexpected” surge in the savings (as we warned would happen last October, and as the WSJ “discovered” last week) one key aspect of this “zone” was missing for the past two years: banks charging negative rates to ordinary, retail depositors.

    However, after a two year wait, this final piece of the NIRP puzzle was revealed when earlier this week, Raiffeisen Gmund am Tegernsee, a German cooperative savings bank in the Bavarian village of Gmund am Tegernsee, with a population 5,767, finally gave in to the ECB’s monetary repression, and announced it’ll start charging retail customers to hold their cash.

            It seems to me that they would owe $1.1M since they already paid $1.2M. But even if it’s 2.3, the company is so undervalued in this environment that I do not think it will matter.

            Scorpio is a little like Impact Silver in my book – it’s an explorer first and small producer second.
            IPT went from about $8M to over $100M this year and Scorpio stands to do return a multiple as well. It trades at 1.5x cash flow while many peers trade at ten to twenty times that (IPT trades at 28x).

    Do you really want clinton as the next President?
    Finally the real reason FBI had no charges/Sick & Disgusting
    The agents at the FBI are livid that Comey did what he did. They are claiming there was more than sufficient evidence to bring several indictments against Hillary Clinton. It wasn’t a slam dunk case, but it had more than a good probability of a conviction for Hillary Clinton.

    Lynch and Obama made it clear to Comey that if he pressed for an indictment, he would be taking the Democrat nominee for president out of the election. If he failed to get a conviction he would be facing charges of tampering with and changing the outcome of a federal election, to which he would be facing the rest of his life in prison, and Obama and Lynch, as well as others, would see to it that he did.
    Now you know why he presented his case the way he did and why it was so obvious he was reluctant to not press for an indictment. Hillary’s statement to the FBI was intentionally given without a court reporter present or without any recording of her testimony to prevent her from having any further exposure to legal charges like perjury. If she lied to Congress, they have no written FBI deposition to confront Hillary with. This was set up to let her walk without fear of being charged with giving False Testimony or being charged with Obstruction of Justice. This is what those in the “legalese world” call a “Straw Man” legal charge. (It is a charge designed to make someone appear innocent of the charges!)

    EXAMPLE: Bill beats up Shirley at their home. Bill is arrested for “Felony Spousal Abuse”. Bill’s lawyer gets the charges dismissed because Bill is not married to Shirley! (They are only “live in boyfriend and girlfriend”.) Bill walks out of court totally exonerated of the charges thanks to a technicality! The twist in the case is the arresting officer knew all along Bill was not married to Shirley because the officer and Bill are old fraternity brothers. The officer intentionally charged Bill with something he knew would not stick. Bill would easily have been convicted of Assault and Battery, but he was not charged with that! This is what is known as the “STRAW MAN” charge. It is how you make a guilty person appear innocent.
    This is exactly what was done with the Hillary Clinton case! If she had been charged with ”Destruction of Government Documents,” she would have easily been convicted, because she admitted to doing this! Instead, she was charged with “Mishandling Classified Documents” which has wiggle room for reasonable doubt regarding Criminal Intent! I think citizens are finally fed up with the Clintons and the cesspool of corruption that is our current government.

    Real Americans are ready to take our country back. All of these years of corruption have taken a toll on American lives. Citizens opinions of a lying White House, a corrupt Congress, the “pay to play” politicians, the legalese lawyers and lobbyists, big overspending “welfare mentality” government, the “looking for a loop hole” justice system, the lying media, and our censored educational system with an agenda to dumb down the next generation, is at the lowest point ever. Hillary is on the wrong side of every issue.

    The British Exit from the EU (Brexit) is just a small sign that real citizens of civilized nations are ready to take their country back. They are sick of the results of open borders and globalization led by power hungry elites.

    Hillary Clinton has no character or integrity. She is an arrogant, condescending political elite who is only interested in lining the Clinton pockets with donations to the Clinton Foundation (wink, wink) from PACS, lobbyists, and foreign nations that buy access and favors. The Clinton Foundation is nothing more than an operation used to launder money for the Clintons and other politicians involved in illegal activities. The Clintons are able to use the information of those participating to obtain cover for their activities, or blackmail those who are laundering money through them.
    Just count the number of politicians who arrive in Washington with nothing, but leave as millionaires and billionaires. Did their votes serve in the best interest of their constituents or did they only benefit themselves? If the representatives of your state fall in this category, then I suggest an investigation be launched.

      The problems with Hillary and the corruption surrounding her should be no surprise to anyone at this point but Plato was obviously a fool himself. The majority is clearly made of fools so if they were to take his advice and take an interest in the affairs of their government, being ruled by fools would be unavoidable. Ever wonder why Hollywood puts its stars up to getting you to vote in those silly “public service announcements”?

      Plato also said: “When there is an income tax, the just man will pay more and the unjust less on the same amount of income.”

      Plato served the state, not the people and not philosophy.

        Well Matthew,

        You can’t win them all. Its got to be a huge gut punch to realize that someone that you admired so much, and who appears to be so intelligent on market matters are stunningly completely oblivious to hard truths and reality in the political and criminal realm.

        All in the name of running cover for a deviant minded criminal that just happens to wear a dress.

        Stick a fork in it, with the prevailing mindset that is so deep seated, there is no saving it. The Communist/Marxists blueprint and subsequent endgame doctrine that Hillary and Obama give their allegiance too have been written about for Centuries. The details are all in print form.

        They’re just three months away from pulling the curtain back to expose the next phase of the “Hell Raiser” sequel.

          Vortex, I really don’t think I can win 10%, let alone “them all.” (Lol)
          Only education can correct the tendency to hold inconsistent beliefs. Intelligence alone is usually not enough – as 90%+ of the world’s population has proven.

    Did you see Hillary’s 2015 tax declaration for speaking fees that were paid directly to the Clinton foundation? Almost all of her charitable donations out of her speaking engagement were made to the Clinton foundation, so whe could tax tax deductions. Over 95% of her “charitable” donations went to her foundation, which pays lots of her real expenses.
    Living the high life without paying her fair share of taxes. What a deal!

      Oh wait DFS,

      When Hillary gets into office the United States can finally have its Marxist utopian moment as taxes are raised from the general 50% threshold for anyone with two nickels to rub together to a beautiful 75% across the board.

      Oh, it will be a magnificent utopia……..more third-world 80 IQ immigrants, more taxes, more war, more death, more Obamacare, more national debt, more subversion of the Constitution and more big brother to keep you safe from you’re own shadow and tell you when, how much and where you can spend your own money.

            The sustainable huge food resource or the “jackpot” in minerals.
            If I recall the people in the area made it clear they didnt want to jeperdise the salmon.

            Naturally the miners wont give up, maybe its as simple as the company mining shareholders.

            But it is interesting for sure, will greed destroy the salmon and lively hood of all concerned,not to mention a much needed food source.

            If it goes ahead, for sure the salmon die no matter what the miners say.

            I find it intersting people are willing to invest in the destruction of their own food supply, and its more than half the salmon in the pacific they risk if I recall.
