Mines will follow gold price increase and it could be violent

Dear readers,

In one of my past articles, I launched a screaming buy on gold.

It was mid October 2015 and gold price was quoting around 1050 $: http://www.crottaz-finance.ch/blog/lor-et-les-mines-cest-parti-mon-goldy/ (sorry only in french but fell free to use an internet translator, it works well)

From that period, the gold rallied 280 $ for a performance of +26%, mines followed the move.

This year 2018 something strange happened.

A big de-correlation between gold price evolution and mines

I have no explanation, but probably gold mines are paper gold and may be people do not really understand the industry. For the moment the sector looks like dead but:

  • The lack of volume is a good sign for a bottom, all the sellers have gone
  • people are very often selling the shares doing nothing to buy the trendy shares (often overvalued)

Today the mines are quoted with a discount regarding the bullion:

and gold vs mines on a long run show again the de-correlation.

I still think gold is going to continue its rally and will break the resistance (it already broke the down trend) and gold companies are going to release nice profits.

On a technical side:

My thoughts and believes are .

  • gold will continue to raise
  • gold mines have the best leverage as ever to enjoy gold rally
  • The producers are going to move first, then developers.
  • The developers have a higher reward ahead and can make a multiple
  • The producers are facing a decrease of their production and are going to be obliged to acquire high grade developer
  • The political environment is also a very important point

graph issued this article: http://www.kitco.com/news/2018-02-22/Canada-Is-The-New-Top-Mining-Destination-Worldwide-Survey.html

In conclusion; Buy a developer, high grade, good quality, low AISC, in a safe juridiction.

As bargain, I have found a very cheap developer stock reaching all the above points and I keep at your disposal its name

If you would like to contact me to know more about this company, feel free: http://scr.im/258d a window will open and tick the box to get my email.

As disclaimer, I have to mention that gold shares can be very volatile.

Happy Investing

Gold vs Mines (english version)

After my french articles “c’est parti mes goldy”

2017: http://www.crottaz-finance.ch/blog/cest-parti-goldy-cest-reparti-goldy/

and end 2015: http://www.crottaz-finance.ch/blog/lor-et-les-mines-cest-parti-mon-goldy/

In which, I was lucky to show low points, I am coming back on gold, the mines and their linked (or not) evolution .

First of all, a graph from  This video (Out end of August, video to listen if you find technical analysis interesting).

The autor is speaking about the next gold increase, it’s only starting.

Back on today’s note

Do we have to own Gold or Mines and do have Mines a Leverage compared to Gold ?

You will find a partial answer in the following graph:

from 1983, owning Mines instead of Gold does not seem to be profitable, especially from 2008, BUT …

A come-back could happen if Gold stays steady or continues its increase (which seems to be the case) and Mines could make a multiple.

And more interesting, the following graph number 2, shows us interesting elements.

Gold beat Mines (in red) from 2008 till 2015 (remember Gold fell from 2011 till 2015) and it is only recently that Mines started to beat Gold again. (probably showing that Mines have a leverage versus Gold (in both ways)).

A more fundamental element: Production Peak seems to have occured in 2015

Conclusion: We have to be invested in Mines when gold is raising in price and the first graph “GOLD vs Mines” is pointing a huge potential for Mines today.

Happy Investing
