Brian Leni – Properly Valuing Resource Stocks In Relation To Price Trends, And Consideration Of The Three Investor Biases
Brian Leni, Founder and Editor of The Junior Stock Review, joins us to reflect on how macroeconomic factors have driven the prices of the precious metals and base metals higher, but that many of junior explorers and developers resource stocks are not keeping up with these gains in the underlying metals. We review how he looks at metals price assumptions in relation to valuations of companies with or without defined ounces or pounds in the ground, and whether he prefers more defensive companies insulated against lower prices, or optionality stocks that will outperform in a rising price environment.
We wrap up by having Brian outline the “3 Biases” he feels are hurting investor’s performance, and that he has talked about recently at mining conferences and sector interviews. It is well worth investors time to listen to how he breaks down 1) confirmation bias 2) the bias of over-influence from social proof and 3) the misweighing bias of not doing the most important things first before investing.
