Brien Lundin Commentary – Thu 5 Nov, 2020

Big Picture Precious Metals Commentary – What’s Driving The Move In PMs and PM Stocks?

Brien Lundin joins me today for a focus on the gold market and the gold stocks. It’s a very good for both as money continues to come into the markets and now into the metals. We outline what is driving this move and a couple key charts to watch heading into the end of the week. Finally a discussion on what it will take to spur M&A in the sector.

    Thanks for the solid interview with Brien. Good stuff.

    Overall it has been a positive day in the precious metals miners. My account is up about 9% on the day, so no complaints here.

    Wishing everyone a prosperous day in the markets.

        Thanks IrishT. I’m in the calm in the eye of the storm right now. Haha!

        Also, I miss chatting with the good folks here at the KER!

    Bonzo bought more KUYAF@ 1.06 this morning before it went soaring up. Looks like I did the right thing this time. Yippee! Anyone else here own KUYAF?

      KUYAF: Good pick. It is on a run.

      I have Kuya silver corp.
      I bought it as MRRMd, it changed to MRRMf last week.
      You have KUYAF…
      What is what? Thanks.

        LOL, I just called TD, they updated my portfolio, ticker is now KUYAF
        Thanks

      David says:

      I owned Kuya when it was Miramont Resources until there was some brewhaha over something that ticked off Moriarty. Rather than see how things would work out, I moved along. Glad to see they are catching on…without me.

      Yes have had it for a while now….finally back on track!

        Quinton is now chairman of the board of KUYAF so I wanted more.

    I just caught up on some mining news. Silvercorp hitting a narrow but bonanza grade drill intercept. 6,455 g/t Silver w/ 10 g/t gold is impressive.

      David says:

      I saw that yesterday and it dropped. I nearly sold my silvercrest for a swap. Probably should have…Silvercorp always been a low cost producer and excellent pereformer.

      • On November 5, 2020 at 11:59 am,
        Excelsior says:

        I like and own both Silvercorp and Silvercrest for different reasons, but yes, SVM is the lowest cost Silver producer out there, and has done well exploring and replacing their reserves for years now.

          Al:
          I know what you mean. Some days mine tank while other people’s go up. Some of it has to do with Exchange/Country differences. Some has to do whether they are listed in an index. Some is whether managed money can buy them. But, my real response is, I have no clue.

    how are people seeing such huge percentage gains today? I’m 100% invested in mining stocks and am up 2% on the day. More green than red but still seeing tax loss selling in some juniors.

  7. On November 5, 2020 at 11:26 am,
    David says:

    What’s everyone’s best performer/s today? % and $ for me are Vizsla and Discovery.

    • On November 5, 2020 at 11:29 am,
      David says:

      While I was typing, Metallic just increased for % lead, but discovery still Dollar.

      • On November 5, 2020 at 12:11 pm,
        Excelsior says:

        Agreed David. For me Excellon, Discovery, Metallic Minerals,Orefinders, Vizsla, Endeavour Silver, Aurcana, Golden Minerals, Metalla, Americas Silver, Coeur, Silvercorp, Trevali, Impact, McEwen, Alexco, Anaconda, Bonterra, Newrange, Orex, Defiance, are some of the double-digit gainers.

        There are also a lot of 8-9%ers like Scorpio, QMX, Group Ten, Bayhorse, Platinum Group Metals, Galane, Sabina, Energy Fuels, etc… Changing too fast to keep up with it.

        • On November 5, 2020 at 12:22 pm,
          David says:

          Double digit (Reverse % High to Low): Sky, Kairos, Discovery, Scorpio, Metallic, Orefinders, Aurcana, Vizsla, Southern Silver, Impact, GRSilver, Silvercrest, QMX, Group Ten, Precipitate, Scottie, Ely, Freegold, Condor, NewRange.

          9%: Summa, Wallbridge and Minera Alamos

          Bunch of overlaps.

          • On November 5, 2020 at 12:26 pm,
            David says:

            Silver Tiger moved into double digit. Too fast, but also overall % moving up also.

          • On November 5, 2020 at 12:33 pm,
            Excelsior says:

            Nice list David. Hmm. I only show Silver Tiger up 2% on the day.

          • On November 5, 2020 at 12:39 pm,
            David says:

            My list is prone to error in Schwab’s price quotes. Usually I complain once a day about one of my stocks being out of wack with OTC Markets listing. They humor me and say they have passed it on, but I never see a change in the listing that particular day. If you have something different, you are probably right. I see OTC Markets has Silver Tiger at +6.5% and Schwab at 5.7%. It was in the +10% area a minute ago. Oh well

          • On November 5, 2020 at 12:52 pm,
            David says:

            Good example: currently Sky Gold at +12.46% on OTC, whereas Schwab showing +36.5%. Small discrepancy.

          • On November 5, 2020 at 1:05 pm,
            David says:

            Big finish at close for Great Bear and took the dollar prize for the day in my account. Came from the back of the pack.

          • On November 5, 2020 at 2:21 pm,
            Excelsior says:

            Way to go on the Great Bear gains David. I still never got a position in that juggernaut, but congratulate all those investors that caught the ride in one of the top gold exploration stories of the last 2 years. Kudos!

        • On November 5, 2020 at 1:02 pm,
          David says:

          4:00 EST +8.77%. I will take it. Thanks guys for the fun day. I get worn out complaining most of the time. Ever Upward!

          Keep the good charts coming.

          • On November 5, 2020 at 2:23 pm,
            Excelsior says:

            Nicely done. I ended the day up 9.81% (but did trim back a few as they stretched into the double-digits, so it may have been a bit higher if it wasn’t for that).

            As you mentioned earlier “I’ll take it!”

        Overall it was a fantastic day in the Precious Metals miners, so hoping the good folks here at the KER cashed in and made a little cheddar today.

            Haha! Thanks Wolfster. I’m in the same boat, and haven’t been keeping up with everything as much lately, but hit a lull point this week between chaotic schedules, and the market was so exciting today, that a few daily performance lists seemed to be in order. šŸ˜‰

          EX,
          good to see you back.
          I only own MUX on that list. I own because it is going to rip higher when Rob fixes the speed-bumps his company hit. Chart looks okay but not amazing compared to others in the space, but one any mania activity kicks in it will have more torque because the newbie punters will pile into mines of Rob and Pierre Lassonde and Orla Mining (up just 9% today)….it is more of a psychology play….but Orla and MUX are serious and have REAL ounces in the ground.

          • On November 5, 2020 at 5:10 pm,

            Hi confused and yes it was nice to focus on the markets today a bit more and get a few posts up.

            I agree on MUX, and while the performance from Rob & co. have been a burr in my saddle the last 2 years with a series of disappointing quarters, I bought back into McEwen mining for the 4th time in the recent past (initiating a position on 08/03, and adding more tranches on 08/11, 9/14, 9/23, and 10/29). My cost basis is $1.18, so with the close today at $1.08, then I’m about a dime underwater. It is weighted in 24th position in my portfolio, so it isn’t a primary focus at present, but that can change as the bull develops.

            As you mentioned, McEwen Mining should have more torque than it has had the last few years when the precious metals mania does get underway, and Rob still does have good name recognition. MUX has been beaten down pretty hard the last 3 years in valuation, and yet most of the disappointment should be in the rear-view mirror now, as they’ve been working hard to get their operations turned around. MUX also may have the advantage of surprising analysts and the market to the upside if they can get their mines running more optimally, and if metals prices stay elevated.

            I’m familiar with Orla Mining, and track it, but don’t own it or follow it that closely. Maybe I should take a closer look though if you feel it has a competitive edge, and
            it has performed well in 2020, compared to peer developers.

            May your positions do incredibly well when the newbie punters do finally pile into this tiny sector.

      Excelsior says:

      Well done Buzz. Yeah, I’ve been watching old Mexus, but it’s been in a downtrend lately, even as they finally are ratcheting up production. At these elevated gold prices and their large margins, they should be making a dent in starting to pay down their debt load. I believe that is what has been hanging over their head for some time, but Paul had mentioned a month or two back in some release that they had a plan to pay down their debt in the next 6 months. Miners are notorious for overpromising, but still, by the end of the 1st quarter of 2021, they should have produced enough gold to have whittled it down substantially. Providing there are no more significant hiccups, then they should be at break even by the middle of next year, and then producing free cashflows by the 3rd or 4th quarter of next year. That is when they should get a solid re-rating higher.

            Thanks DT. Yes, it is looking like the corrective leg that started in August is turning with breakout above key resistance levels in many stocks.

            The overall uptrend, that has been in place the last 2 years, and really since the Dec 2015 bottom, is still solidly in place and the precious metals have garnered more respect from generalist investors.

            Even if there is more weakness due to the US election madness, more covid-19 lockdowns, or any other black swans we can’t see yet, the overall backdrop is still very constructive. There will eventually be a stimulus bill passed, more debt will keep piling up, more central bank tinkering and easing will continue, and the global economy and currencies will remain a roller-coaster.

            Mining.com Editor | November 5, 2020

            Gold ETFs have now added more than 1,000 tonnes in a year for the first time ever, surpassing the 2009 record of 646 tonnes.

            Net inflows of 1,022 tonnes ($57.1 billion) so far in 2020 have driven global gold ETF holdings to a new all-time high of 3,899 tonnes ($235 billion in AUM).

            European funds drove nearly all net inflows for the month of October, with total holdings increasing by 20.2 tonnes ($1.4 billion).

            North American funds and funds listed in Asia saw holdings rise by 1.8 tonnes ($166 million) and 1.1 tonnes ($76 million) respectively. The remaining regions had outflows of 2.8 tonnes ($144 million).

        Santa Might Come Early For Gold Investors

        by @Goldfinger on 5 Nov 2020

        “At the risk of being wrong, I’m going to go out on a limb and declare that the 3-month correction in the precious metals sector has concluded. Everything I see out there indicates to me that sentiment is sufficiently depressed and charts are locked and loaded, poised for a year end rally.”

        “To put things into perspective, the GDXJ had a more than 200% rally from its March low to its early August peak. Since peaking at $65.95 on August 5th, the GDXJ has suffered a ~22% correction over a 3-month period – most of the recent consolidation/correction in the gold mining sector has been through time, in a messy and frustrating sideways-to-lower price pattern.”

        “Honestly, one couldn’t ask for a more natural bull market pattern – a 200%+ rally followed by a 22% correction that has served to reset charts across the sector while transforming investor sentiment from a bullish euphoria in early August to a despondent pessimism at last week’s lows.”

        “The stage is now set for a powerful year end rally in precious metals and mining shares.”

            Agreed DT. In a breakaway PM bull market, the Silver mining investors do typically get the biggest gains. We saw that yesterday in the lists above in the outperformance of the Silver mining stocks. They are more volatile to the upside and downside, there are less of them to pick from, and when investors pile in they can really move.

            Yes, Santacruz Silver has does well, but it will eventually stretch it’s legs and be one of the better performers on the next major bull impulse leg higher, just like it did on the 2019 surge as the tiniest market cap Silver producer. With 3 operating mines now, decreasing costs, and increasing metals prices, it should have a fair bit of upside torque. Looking forward to SCZ joining the parade.

    (AR) (ARNGF) Argonaut Gold Announces Third Quarter 2020 Operating and Financial Results Reporting

    by @newswire on 5 Nov 2020

    Pete Dougherty, President and CEO stated: “It was an extremely busy third quarter for the Company. We closed the Alio transaction, completed a C$126.5 million equity financing and entered into an agreement for the sale of the Ana Paula project. Subsequent to the end of the quarter, we completed a C$11.5 million flow-through financing to fund exploration at Magino for the next year, announced that we closed a convertible debenture financing for $57.5 million while expanding and extending our revolving credit facility to up to $125.0 million and are moving Magino towards construction early in 2021. After acquiring the Florida Canyon mine at the beginning of the third quarter, we have begun to implement modifications to the crushing and stacking circuit, which we expect will lower operating costs. We expect these modifications to be completed in the first half of 2021.”
