You really cannot just buy and hold – sell some to greed – buy into fear was never more true but hard to do. As Junior Gold and Silver Exploration is complex, and high risk, with the success and failure of so many small companies, successful investment in this area requires good knowledge of the projects and people involved. Expertise in economic geology can add further judgement of the prospects. A large number of newsletter “guru” writers have followings as the prospective rewards are so high in the right environment and investors seek a hand to hold in guiding them through the 1000’s of listed companies and in timing their entries and exits from stock selection. Clearly the newsletters are not public documents, however a number of the writers promote their picks publicly on TV, in the mining press and at investor conferences. Excellent sites for research are Stockchase and The Gold Report, explored below. The links on this blog also identify some free sample newsletters made available by writers.
For example – Jay Taylor at Miningstocks. It is always worth trying to understand the newsletter writers’ compensation from companies they promote and their stock positions held. Some writers are seen as “pumpers” of stocks. Personally I am wary of those promoting stocks they don’t own, I would rather they “eat their own cooking” but equally the timing of purchases through placements then sale into “retail promotion” has a nasty odour.
As discussed in a post on this blog the promotion of small nano-cap and micro-cap gold and silver explorers is fraught with danger if these promotions reach large audiences during the “over-excited” phases of gold’s bull-market. It is wonderful to see your stock-holdings’ price climb but such buying levels are probably not sustainable unless followed up with real news. Public discussion may be an opportunity for the newsletter writers’ subscribers to unload stocks to the “greenhorns” as Otto at Inca Kola describes the new investors. Look for the writers at Gold Report and Stockchase.
The Gold Report has 2-3 weekly interviews, also with brokers and analysts, and has a number of mostly better quality sponsoring companies with recent commentary. The better writers tend to follow projects and people over time and recognise the under and over-valued periods rather than pumping and dumping the latest hot stock story. Only we as individual investors can book profits before the herd decides to. The “luck” or bad-luck of the drillbit is harder to anticipate but there is a strong “sell the news” ethic amongst many speculators in this sector so it really isn’t a good idea to chase today’s news releases, but there are some very strong discoveries which will build solidly on consecutive news and anticipation with normal pull backs. However even the best companies’ prices will fall during weak markets and this offers opportunity if you trust the picks.
The hardest part of the junior gold market is that the strongest stocks will often not “let you in” if you wait for big pullbacks while the market direction is bullish. In a weak market like 2011 they all do, if you kept cash! In using the links below it is usually best not to chase the latest interview release, or at least check the price movements before you trade, but set up watchlists and follow over time. Note the stocks liked by a number of experts and do your own due diligence. Rick Rule – Not a newsletter writer.
