Erik Wetterling – Retail Investors Continue To Shrug Off Good News In Gold Explorers And Most Of The Junior Nickel Companies
Erik Wetterling, Founder and Editor of The Hedgeless Horseman website, joins me to review the continued lackluster interest from retail investors in most of the gold and nickel exploration stocks, and the persistent trend of shrugging off good news and further value-creation by the resource companies.
Erik points to the recent encouraging news released recently by 2 gold explorers, Altamira Gold (ALTA.V) and Goliath Resources (GOT.V), to little fanfare or traction in the sour sentiment backdrop. We speculate on how different the reactions may have been to the exact same news in a positively trending sentiment environment. Next we get into all the solid work advancing projects building value that a handful of nickel explorers and developers have been doing; flagging Canada Nickel (CNC.V), FPX Nickel (FPX.V), Stillwater Critical Minerals (PGE.V), and Magna Mining (NICU.V). There is a stark dichotomy between this work attracting a number of the larger base metals and manufacturers as strategic investors; while simultaneously most retail investors are tuned out and remain apathetic. *
