Weekend Show – Sat 19 Dec, 2020

In depth discussion on the reflation trade underway and an update from Cartier Resources

Full Hour Show

It was a good week for markets across the board. The key topic that I cover on this weekend’s show is the reflation or inflation trade that is underway.

I love hearing from you all so please keep the emails coming to fleck@kereport.com.

  • Segment 1 and 2 – Rick Bensignor kicks off the show by sharing his thoughts on the current market environment where everything (expect the US Dollar) is heading higher. This leads into a discussion on the possibility of inflation rising next year and what the central bank response will be.
  • Segment 3 – Steve Todoruk, Investment Executive at Sprott Global explains why he hates optionality plays and provides an outlook for M&A in the metals sector. To send Steve your questions on companies in your portfolio you can email Steve at STodoruk@sprottglobal.com.
  • Segment 4 – Philippe Cloutier, President and CEO Cartier Resources (TSX.V:ECR) wraps up the show by outlining the upcoming 30,000 meter drill program at the Benoist Property and the recent Resource Estimate that was released.

    Let me state, at this point in time, I do not own any part of one Bitcoin.
    Indeed after a few thousand more dollars run-up, it would not surprise me if BTC value had a sudden 30% drop. However, bitcoin DOES HAS WORTH. Why? BECAUSE IT HAS UTILITY.
    As the first crypto mover, it still is the most common entry point into cryptos. (Indeed for many cryptosm they are only purchasable via exchange for bitcoin.)
    At a time when many are moving from big cities into smaller towns; at a time when people are moving from high tax states to low tax states; at a time when people are moving from oppressive countries to less oppressive countries, bitcoin does represent a highly mobile hold-in-hand quantity of worth.

      Mike in Albuquerque says:

      A couple of mounts ago I bought my first bit of Bitcoin on Gemini and much more via GBTC and then recently really started buying it and Ethereum on PayPal. Gemini is a pain to deal with while Paypal is a breeze so sooner or later I’ll be moving my little bit of Bitcoin to PayPal. I did this as an experiment and learning exercise and also to get a bit of diversity in my holdings. Since PayPal is accepted at many stores having some alternative currency available in a pinch seems prudent. My plan is to build up and ultimately hold a couple of % of my assets in Bitcoin, I still and will own gold, silver and miners in the future but getting my feet a bit wet in the crypto seems a reasonable thing to do.

          “In this conversation, Dan and Anthony discuss the gold thesis, the bitcoin thesis, the recent divergence, whether they will co-exist in the future, how to think of an ideal allocation to either, and stock-to-flow models.”

            The globalist cabal has had a plan for “the end of currencies” for some time, and things have been moving towards digital currencies regardless (with or without Bitcoin or the altcoins on the blockchain).

            Think of how long people have already been conditioned to convert their digital bank dollars into Paypal to buy things on Ebay or Amazon, or Venmo, or the dozen other online payment systems. Think of going to Las Vegas and converting physical dollars into chips. Kids have been doing this with video games for several decades converting their money into gaming tokens or credits, and adults have been doing it online for decades with online gambling sites. Humans have been converting their greenbacks into other digital currencies/tokes/credits for some time now, and the rise of digital banking and money transfers where no physical cash is used has been growing for many years now.

            Each country will want it’s own digital currency, and many companies have also tried to create their own. That is an unstoppable force at this point, whether or not someone buys Bitcoin, Ethereum, Litecoin, Tether, or Ripple…

            I agree that there is no doubt all of this will be used as a digital control mechanism, and to further the death of physical cash. Cash is already mostly non-existent in many Asian countries, and now under the conditions and cover of the Pandemic, many businesses are voluntarily outlawing physical cash.

            The cheese is moving, for better or worse, and there are convenience benefits with digital money, but at the huge price of lack of privacy and autonomy. It’s a brave new world out there…

        The leverage in the miners over the metals, and Silver miners with the most upside torque is quite likely to re-establish itself in 2021 and even into 2022. I’ll be looking to future pullbacks and corrective moves to add to Silver miners, and may still add a bit more over the next few weeks, but I’ve got 21 Silver stocks at present, and am in a healthy position for this trend to play out.

            Matthew says:

            It wouldn’t be much of a bull market if silver didn’t outperform gold on a percentage basis but I think gold is going to perform better than most expect. There is still a huge amount of very high net worth money that has yet to diversify at all and it will seek gold by a very wide margin for its stability and depth of liquidity. So, I like the silver miners most followed by small gold junior miners with physical silver in a close 3rd place. I haven’t bought gold in years and I’m not going to now. Gold (money) has been in a secular bull market versus commodities for the last 20 years and the odds are good that that bull peaked this year. In other words, deflation in real terms is over. Someone should tell Bob Hoye since he has been expecting deflation in nominal terms the entire time.

          • On December 20, 2020 at 2:40 pm,
            Big Al says:

            So Matthew, you disagree with Doc. I personally don’t but I put what he said into the not just the gold category but the entire precious metals category!

            For the record, I’m not against gold and many people need to get some or get some more. I’m just confident that it will underperform the rest of the sector for the next few months from here. I’d buy it before I’d buy the bond market or conventional stocks, that’s for sure.

People want to believe that nothing is out of order in America. And, elected officials are counting on that.

            David says:

            Where do you start in enforcing the law at the Federal Level? The President. The President appoints the Attorney General. Law Enforcement at the Federal Level is the Jystice Department. If you want the SEC to regulate, you require they do their job. Doing their job includes referring criminal cases to the FBI. Once the FBI does an investigation it gies to a GranD Jury fir indictment. The indictment goes to the Courts.
            That doesn’t happen because the Administrative Branch allows the SEC and Justice Department to settle massive fraud cases and market manipulation by Civil Fine.
            That in itself is illegal. Solution: Get an honest President that appoints an honest prosecutor that “allows” the career law enforcement to their jobs and demand that they enforce the laws as they exist.
            It is that simple. Finding someone honest to elect is a real problem. It may be necessary to make law enforcement somehow independent from political influence. Their job is enforcement of the laws.. not a political theory.
            Government employees whether elected or appointed, swear to support and defend the Constitution. Make them do it or get rid of them through
            voting or jail.
            It all starts by restoring the integrity of the law at the highest levels and that would be restoring the integrity and independence of the Justice Department. Just think if the mind set of Washington were changed from “what can I do to profit from this issue” to “what can I do to follow the law and help the taxpayer”. There is a difference and requires people in key positions to act in an ethical and morally appropriate way. Not so easy these days. Force is not a solution but a failed result of weak character.

            Jerry, the people have long forgotten that the federal government was created by the states to SERVE the states, not rule them. What we have today is akin to a child ruling his parents despite clear and very limited chores assigned to him his parents.
            This upside-down and endless centralizing of power has been going on for 150+ years and the Republicans are just as much to blame as the Democrats. Just look at all the R fools who think Lincoln was a great president despite all the crystal clear evidence to the contrary. Tradition can be as formidable as propaganda when it comes to undermining critical thinking because so much of it is the result of propaganda.

            We have got to ignore parties or a party and enforce the law. Applying the law equally is mandatory. It doesn’t matter who is in charge, what they believe or their personal desires, the law has to be restored and enforced. Special interests must be ignored and equitable treatment remain the rule.
            If all we do is chase smoke screens and rhetoric, nothing changes. Law is the basis for a free society and failing to enforce it or failing to enforce it equitably destroys freedom. Ignoring restoring the legal system, will continue the chaos. The government works for the people…period.

            That’s interesting. I got in the habit of using EMA, not sure why – probably because that’s what Jack Chan uses.

            Just for fun, I ran about 20 weekly charts with 233 MA and EMA and noticed that the charts that resemble the blonde I’d like to marry have the EMA above the MA, and the ones that resemble the Wicked Witch from Endor are the other way around.

            Here’s one I got engaged to after she suffered that terrible fall to the 233 WEMA (WSP.TO)

            On a related not, most people use the 200 MA and they could have been stopped out or even gone short in March and in November as gold had back-to-back closes below the 200 dMA in both months. However, those who used the Fibonacci-based 233 dMA never had a single close below that MA. In fact, the last close below the 233 dMA happened 2 years ago, in December 2018.

    (UUUU) (EFR) Energy Fuels And The Monazite Plan

    Dec. 18, 2020 – Tim Worstall Seeking Alpha

    Rare earths

    “So, we’re all aware of the twin things all are saying about rare earths – the 15 lanthanides plus yttrium and scandium. They’re essential for all these lovely new and renewables technologies so we need to have more of them. Further, since China produces some 70% of global supply then there has to be significant production outside that country. We can’t rely upon them now, can we?”

    “Energy Fuels is the only licenced and operating uranium mill in the country. They, most importantly, have storage space and storage licences for the radioactive wastes from the processing. ”

    “If I were to try and enter the US rare earths market (recall, I did used to be in the associated scandium business) this is what I’d be trying to do. Work out a way of using the waste products from other processes. For it is indeed well known that there are rare earths in many of them. The problem to be overcome would be that radioactivity problem.”

    “This is exactly what Energy Fuels has just achieved.”

    “Energy Fuels has cracked a significant problem here. There is no logical reason why the plan won’t work. They should be a great deal cheaper than new mines trying to produce rare earth concentrates.”

      (UUUU) (EFR) Energy Fuels Set to Enter Commercial Rare Earth Business in Q1-2021, Producing Materials That Make Many Clean Energy and Advanced Technologies Possible

      14 Dec 2020


      • On December 20, 2020 at 2:37 am,
        Excelsior says:

        Personally, I’ve been positioned in (UUUU) Energy Fuels for the last few years and have followed it for over a decade, due to the Uranium story, and as prior producers of Uranium with the only operating mill in the US, then I feel that gives them a huge advantage over all other hardrock U companies. [there are a few In-situ Uranium producers in the US like Ur-Energy and Peninsula energy, and a few developers like UEC, AEC, and Azarga looking to enter ISR production when the pricing is economical to do so].

        Another arrow in the Energy Fuels quiver is that they can process and produce Vanadium, which is an important specialty resource for Vanadium redox batteries in the larger scale energy storage sector.

        Now they’ve added a 3rd value driver in the processing of other companies waste ore to extract Rare Earth Elements. They can handle the radioactivity due to their Uranium licensing and experience, and this seems far more economical and profitable that other new companies trying to learn to mine and extract them on their own.

        (UUUU) Energy Fuels has started to move nicely higher over the last quarter, and my expectations are for an orderly march higher from here over the next few years as Uranium, Vanadium, and Rare Earths continue to come more into investor focus. As a result it has moved to my largest holding in the Uranium space — with (NXE) NexGen and (URG) Ur-Energy coming in close a close 2nd & 3rd.

        Investors should do their own due diligence, of course, but after following the Uranium sector since 2010, the rare earths since 2011, and Vandium since 2017, this is the company I feel most comfortable backing for the unfolding bull market in all 3 sectors.

      Hey there Wolfster – Nice to see you posting as well sir.

      I built a Goldon position earlier in the year and wondered if it was ever going to get noticed, and have been pleasantly surprised with it has started getting traction the last few months. I trimmed a little earlier this month when it had more than doubled, but have the rest of the position riding the exploration wave higher.

      I agree with you on the battery stocks, and I’ve mentioned on here about a half dozen times over the last few months that Lithium stocks have been perking up, as have Copper. However so have most commodities, like the PGM stocks have been on fire, and even the Zinc/Lead stocks have been on the move again. Fun times!

        It is also interesting to note that many PGM companies are well endowed with Nickel or Copper, and vice versa…. many base metals deposits have a nice PGM kicker.

What we dont want to see is gold to give back all the gains seen from Fridays close. Ideally we would like to see a move towards golds former all-time high around $1920 being challenged in the next 24-48 hours.

    Stimulus related bounce(?). More to come.

    And I spoke too soon. Thats disappointing! Another Monday “fakeout”. Specs and traders looking to trap other players in the short term. In the short term, this retracement is a little concerning as it indicates little strength around $1900. Need gold to bounce back soon.

      Looks good to me. The plunge looks like nothing more than a smack down/shake out in the hours with thin volume.

        $1866 would be a good retest hold.

    Apparently someone lied when they said stimulus mattered to the PMs. Well they rode that one for 5 months.

      It apparently did, but the package was obviously too little to matter enough, at least for now.

      It has always been a war for your mind but most people can’t grasp that fact regardless of their political party. The masses know only a false history and believe in a system that doesn’t exist.

        No, Jerry is right. Your mind must be captured before your soul is at risk. That’s what government schooling is all about and it works extraordinarily well, obviously.
