Hour 1 – The Shaky Equity Markets Post Election And Fed Meeting

Click download link to listen on this device: Download Show

There was a lot of noise this week for investors. We completed the US mid-term elections and had the Fed meeting. The major takeaway is that not a whole lot is changing for investors. Equity markets remain volatile and generally weak around the world. Oil and metals continue to slid and are unloved. Finally the USD keeps moving higher. We focus a lot on the US markets this show but also discuss the metals in terms of what distracts investors.

Please keep in touch with me by emailing me at Fleck@kereport.com. I love to hear from all of you and do my best to follow up with all the companies and guests you want to hear on the show. Keep the emails coming and have a great weekend!

      Although cannabis stocks have been considered “hot” money, Doug Casey, founder of Casey Research, said that this sector is currently overbought, as is the overall equities market. ”

      “I don’t like the overall stock market…point number two, I’ve been involved in these marijuana stocks, I think that you could never go wrong in two ways: underestimating the stupidity of the American public, or underestimating their desire for vice,” Casey told Kitco News on the sidelines of the Silver & Gold Summit in San Francisco, “unfortunately, it’s become a bubble, and it’s peaking.”

      “On commodities, Casey thinks that there is more upside still, saying that he is “a commodities bull.”

            John Hathaway: Deficit Risks Will Fuel Gold Move Higher

            by @PalisadeRadio on November 9, 2018

            ” John cautions that investors are going to become increasingly aware of the dangers of deficit spending and inflation which should cause gold to get more of a bid. A small pullback could still happen, but he doubts that there will be a retest of 2015 lows. Long-term he remains very bullish.”

            “He feels the best performance gains will come from exploration companies. There is always excitement from a good drill hole or from resource estimates increasing. The larger companies like Barrick and Newmont are running out of reserves, and these companies will need to acquire some new properties from smaller explorers. He sees a merger and acquisition phase coming.”

        Now publicly RR, MK, and BC all stated that it surprised them that they pulled off that sale of their copper asset, but that the proceeds and what they’ll be able to do acquiring other royalty assets aren’t factored into the share price at present.

        Gotta love these royalty profit dumpsters.

          Wolfster – speaking of royalty companies……

          I’m keen on the set up in Sailfish Royalty Corp (FISH) at present, because their overly complicated transaction with Marlin Gold (MLN), from which it was spun out initially, and Golden Reign (GRR) is being completely overlooked by the marketplace.

          Basically when Marlin spun out Sailfish they got the streaming deal on Golden Reign’s San Albino development project, and the royalty on El Dorado’s development project Tocantinzinho.


          • On November 11, 2018 at 11:43 am,
            Excelsior says:

            Those are both good and a solid value, but I never understood during that spinout why Marlin retained the Royalties on (EXK) Endeavour Silver’s El Compass mine, which is going into production at present, or (KTN) Kootenay Silver’s La Cigarra development stage project [that they picked up during their acquisition of Northhair Silver a few years back].


          • On November 11, 2018 at 12:00 pm,
            Excelsior says:

            Then, when the news broke that (GRR) Golden Reign, a developer, was acquiring Marlin Gold, a small gold/silver producer, I saw this section and the light-bulb went off.

            (a) the Revised Stream Agreement will have the equivalent effect of a 3% net smelter royalty (“NSR”) over the existing area of interest, and a 2% NSR on the rest of the 138 sq. km area surrounding the existing area of interest, with no security interests granted;
            (b) Sailfish will extinguish Golden Reign’s prepayment liability associated with the existing gold
            stream on San Albino;
            (c) Sailfish’s existing funding obligation of approximately US$13.9 million will be eliminated;
            (d) all covenants associated with the existing gold stream will be renegotiated on terms consistent with an arm’s length royalty; and

            >>> (e) “as partial consideration for entering into the Revised Stream Agreement, Marlin will assign to Sailfish, for no additional consideration, the El Compas (1.5% NSR) and La Cigarra (1% NSR) royalties in Mexico, the right to option the Gavilanes property in Mexico for nominal consideration, which is expected to be converted to a royalty upon entering into an exploration agreement with an operating partner and approximately 50 million MXP of Mexican value add tax (“IVA”) receivables (not including interest and other adjustments), which are part of ongoing litigation with the Mexican tax authorities. A portion of these IVA receivables have already been received by Marlin”


            So basically, this 3 way merger mashup between Golden Reign, Marlin Gold, and Sailfish Royalty is far more genius than the marketplace is giving them credit for, and hardly anyone pays attention to any of them. I made a great return in Marlin from late 2016 through mid 2017 because the stock was 85% held by Wexford Capital and the float was so small, it was easy to have it forced higher.

            Now, after the last year where they spun out Sailfish, and announced the drawn out merger of Golden Reign and Marlin, I was wondering what the hell they were doing as it killed the valuations of all 3 companies.

            —> Now I realize that by GRR acquiring a revenue generating MLN, that will be the tool they use to help build out and develop San Albino. The giant noose around their neck was the streaming deal that Marlin passed to Sailfish, but that all just got cleaned up during this merger.

            The noose around (FISH)’s neck was the large payout they had to fork out to help fund San Albino, but that also was just resolved by adjusting the streamining dea, and if you read part (e) carefully, Sailfish just picked up the 2 royalties from Marlin on Endeavour Silver’s El Compass, and Kootenay’s La Cigarra, and a royalty on Golden Reign’s San Albino, and the future agreement to create a royalty on Marlin’s Gavilanes project.

            If you recall, this Gavilanes project was one that Marlin bought for a song and dance from (SCZ) Santacruz Silver last year when SCZ was clearing up their debt and balance sheet.

            *** Conclusion, Golden Reign was wise to acquire a revenue generating smaller miner, Marlin Gold, to fund the development of their much larger mine in Nicaragua, but simultaneously, work out a much better arrangement with Marlin’s old spinout, Sailfish Royalty, which helped not just them but Sailfish as well.

            Now Sailfish Royalty Corp (FISH) (SROYF) – will have 1 stream, and 4 royalites, with the arrangement to create a 5th royalty on Gavilanes down the road.

            The marketplace is asleep at the wheel at present, and there isn’t any interest in the sector from most right now regardless. However, in a year or so, people are going to wake up and realize Golden Reign is a small producer with a huge development projects getting ready to be build, and will wonder where the hell Sailfish Royalty Co came from. 🙂

            Yes, it is confusing. After re-reading some of the press releases again, there is 1 correction I need to make to the above description, and that is that essentially the streaming deal on San Albino was converted into a 3% and 2% NSR to Sailfish, and there is no longer a “stream”.

            Post-transaction, Sailfish Royalty Corp $FISH $SROYF – will have 5 #royalites (2 on San Albino), 1 on Tocantinzinho, 1 on El Compass, and 1 on La Cigarra, with the arrangement to create a 6th #royalty on Gavilanes down the road.

            It isn’t the beefiest royalty company by any stretch, but all their projects are advanced development projects going into production over the next few years, so their value will only grow, as should the valuation of the company.

            In addition Golden Reign has the shackles loosened finally, and has a cashflowing mine La Trinidad from the Marlin Gold merger to use to build San Albino.

    I just listened to one of Ex’s listed video’s and Rick Rule made an interesting point on Cobalt. He said “there are only two supply potentials for cobalt one is Katanga the other is The Russians.” Katanga’s cobalt supply has been disrupted until they can clean the uranium from the cobalt ore, that means Katanga’s cobalt supply will be off line for more than one year and maybe much longer. The price of cobalt has gone up 15% in one week based probably on the loss of this important supplier. The electric car industry is now forced to look at a battery that doesn’t need cobalt. Isn’t investing fun. DT

        The Next Bull Market Move Interview – Bryan Slusarchuk, Founder of European Electric Metals

        by @bullmarketmove on November 7, 2018

        “We view the underlying supply and demand dynamics for copper, nickel and cobalt as very attractive. The supply side because difficult pricing environments for multiple years for the metals resulted in a lack of new expansion and exploration spending, while the demand side is exciting due to technological innovation such as electrification.”

        “Also, as you know, the vast majority of the world’s cobalt comes from DRC where working conditions, including child labour, can be horrendous. End users are increasingly not only seeking out stable sources of cobalt supply but are looking for ethically sourced material.”

        Nickel is weaker than expected right now but it has a bright future – here’s why Resources

        November 9, 2018 | Angela East

        “November 9, 2018 | Angela East

        Nickel prices may remain weak for the next couple of years, but an increase in demand from battery makers makes the outlook extremely promising two to three years out.”

        “The biggest primary driver of nickel consumption right now is stainless steel — and forecasts for steel demand have softened.”

        “There is also still an oversupply situation, with “reasonable” nickel inventories still needing to be used up.”

        “So for anyone buying nickel, there’s no reason as of this moment for them to be anxious about securing that supply,” Mr Morgan said.

        “Electric vehicles, which is an extremely small part of the market right now, has not yet had an opportunity to become big enough to have really mattered in the short-term.”
