Sean Brodrick – General US Equities Weakness Shifts Focus Into Cannabis, Uranium, Copper, Palladium, Smallcap Oil, And Gold Stocks

Sean Brodrick, Editor of Wealth Megatrends and contributing analyst to Weiss Ratings Daily, joins me today to review how he is taking a more defensive posture investing in the general US equities, but seeing more capital rotate into commodity megatrends.  He is focused adding resource stock allocations in the cannabis, uranium, copper, palladium, small-cap oil, and gold sectors. For each sector, we review the technical price action of the underlying commodities, the supply/demand fundamentals of those markets, and then drill down into the types of resource stocks that have Sean’s attention.   It’s a nuanced discussion where we weave in both the macroeconomic data and geopolitical effects of global trade, to assess the economic health and market expectations around future Fed rate cuts.

    Arturo Préstamo, Executive Chairman and Interim CEO of Santacruz, commented, “In 2023, Santacruz continued to build a mid-tier silver and base metals producer. The Company completed several mine optimization initiatives including the integration ramp that connects the Tres Amigos and Colquechaquita underground mines at Caballo Blanco in Bolivia . And in Mexico , the operational restructuring at the Zimapan mine has already resulted in cost savings.”

    Mr. Préstamo continued, “The Company has also made significant progress on improving its financial position, and recently announced amended terms of sale with Glencore for the Bolivian assets. This is expected to further strengthen our balance sheet by significantly reducing the value of the consideration payable that will be recorded on our balance sheet, which will be reflected in the next quarterly financial results.”

    GOLD GOING UP…………… 🙂

    Have a great Week…..

    Sean better have a look at Platinum…. just might be a changing of the guard…. 🙂

      May 03, 2024 03:50 AM

      The changing of the guard is probably because Russia has indicated it wants peace talks. As soon as the War in Ukraine is officially declared as over, Russia won’t be flooding the market with platinum and up she goes. As per RR……….! DT

    Another person that may be a good “interview” is Vince Lanci. Not sure if he does them but he does put up a morning update on YouTube. He evidently is tied to Miles Franklin.

    Have not listened. Will later.
    But shifting focus is a mistake:

    Gold before. Gold now. Gold forever!

      May 03, 2024 03:02 PM

      Hi BDC. Yes, agreed, and Sean agreed in the interview as he is moving money out of one gold stock into another with more torque. His shift in focus was more away from general equities (as they are correcting as noted in the S&P 500 chart he included) and putting more emphasis on the commodities sector.
