  • A Micro Cap Turning Mega Cap –Top Long Term Play

    Back in August I wrote about MGX Mineral Inc. (Symbol CSE: XMG). There has been some great progress with this company and things continue to look even better.

    Technical analysis and trading is my passion and getting involved in new companies which have a quality product, proven management, and have the right timing for entering a market which is close to starting a new bull market is one of the most exciting types of long term investments to watch unfold.

    Don't get me wrong, investments are just that… long term, and take years to unfold, but if you are positioned with the right company at the right time returns can be life changing 3-5 years down the road.

    Long story short MGX Mineral's has what myself and many others believe to be a world class open-pit mine for Magnesite. It's high-grade mineral, location and potentially lowest processing and shipping costs position this company at the top of my investment list. This is not a 2-3 year mine that will be out of material like most gold and silver mines, this a 100+ year operation in the infancy stage.

    This is new company which means two things:

    1. It's still unknown and share price is still cheap.
    2. Share price has been trading at all-time highs which means no overhead sellers/resistance.

    Looking at the chart below we can see share price is rising with a bullish pattern. At this point the chart is indicating the next rally should reach 92.5 cents per share up 50%.

    To be honest, I have never had the opportunity to find and be involved with a company that has this much potential long term. Jared the CEO and myself both see this being a billion dollar company way down the road and know that makes this company an incredible value at this price.

    My partner Kal Kotecha who helps me find and research these micro cap stock plays for our long term portfolio just release his update which I have added below for you. Check it out!

    Kal Kotecha's Recent MGX Mineral Inc. Report

    Early in August, we wrote an article detailing MGX Minerals Inc. ("MGX" or the "Company") (CSE: XMG), a mining company engaged in the acquisition and development of industrial mineral deposits in Western Canada. MGX is unique in that it is carving a niche within the junior mining field by directing efforts toward high grade magnesite (MgCO3) extraction through their Driftwood Creek mining deposit located in southern British Columbia, Canada.

    MGX's stated strategic objectives include constructing a quarry mine and processing plant to produce magnesium oxide at Driftwood Creek. The Company owns the majority of significant magnesite properties in the Province of British Columbia, as reported by the British Columbia Geological Service, and is making the most of its assets by moving forward in extraction and processing of available resources.


    Driftwood Mining District

    British Columbia offers a premier landscape for mining operations, with advanced infrastructure surrounding key mining regions developed over the 19th and 20th century when the industry as a whole boomed. As noted by The British Columbia Technical and Research Committee on Reclamation, "the province encompasses the largest part of the Canadian Cordillera, a mountain belt rich in minerals and coal. British Columbia is an important producer and exporter of copper, gold, silver, lead, zinc, molybdenum, coal and industrial minerals" (BC TRCR, 2015). These industrial minerals include magnesite, and MGX intends to explore this area to extract the financial bevy it represents.


    MGX Minerals Inc. - Analysis

    In our last article, we analyzed several factors of the Company that demonstrated its potential for success, including:


    • Steadily growing demand for high grade magnesite at a compound annual growth rate of 6% (Berry, 2015)
    • MGX's strategic partnerships with Eaton Corporation (NYSE: ETN) and Highbury Energy to secure long-term financing support and low-cost energy solutions
    • Strong value chain management capabilities derived from the location and geology of Driftwood Creek
    • The company's demonstration of advanced business planning with Driftwood Creek's near-term cash flow combined with low initial capital expenditures, producing limited investment risk

    As a resource, magnesite is a highly valuable product utilized as a component in production processes across several industries. Magnesite serves as a feedstock for the production of Magnesium Oxide ("MgO"), which is a widely used industrial mineral. Uses of MgO include abrasives, animal feed supplements, chemicals, coatings, construction, electrical, fertilizers, foundries, glass manufacture, insulation, lubricating oils, pharmaceuticals, plastics manufacture, refractory and ceramics, rubber compounding, steel industry, sugar refining, sulfite wood pulping, and wastewater treatment. MGX is focused on supplying its extracted magnesite to the refractory and steel industries; a lucrative proposition given the fluctuating steel market and the demand for stable material supply by producers.


    Magnesite (Minerology Database)

    Since the time of our August article's publication, MGX has been very active in its Driftwood Creek project, beginning drilling operations, securing agreements to acquire essential industrial infrastructure, and conducting resource estimates and environmental studies of the site.

    Drilling Operations

    On August 30, 2015, MGX commenced its Phase II drilling program at Driftwood Creek, and over the next month completed nearly twelve drill holes. The drill program is targeting extensions of magnesite mineralization along strike in the Western Zone of Driftwood Creek, which as of October 5, 2015, has been delineated across 0.5 kilometers. The results of the program suggest high levels of magnesite in the mine, with management viewing the profit potential as significant.

    The following chart defines the results from the first four drill holes of Driftwood Creek:


    From (NYSE:M)






























































    The figures represent the clear potential of the property to yield magnesite that can be extracted efficiently through open pit, quarry mining processes. This is beneficial for MGX and its investors because open pit mining is safer for the organization's workforce and reduces the environmental impact of tailings, helping to limit possible negative perceptions from the community.

    MGX plans to compile the drill results from its Phase I and II drilling projects to establish a National Instrument (N.I.) 43-101 compliant mineral resource estimate for the Eastern and Western Zones of the property. The Company is also contracting VAST Resource Solutions to prepare environmental baseline and engineering studies of Driftwood Creek, focusing on surface and ground hydrology. These commissioned studies demonstrate MGX's commitment to the Driftwood Creek project, and investors should match the Company's confidence by delivering financing for the operation to continue to move forward.

    This interview with MGX's CEO, Jared Lazerson, conducted at the Vancouver Resource Investment Conferences highlights the Company's approach to mining industrial minerals, and offers a unique value proposition relative to competitors in the junior mining space:


    Infrastructure Development

    We appreciate organizations that recognize the value of strategically advancing themselves on their supply chain in order to maintain control of their extracted resource and ensure that it is being processed effectively for future sale. MGX personifies this strategy, having partially selected southern British Columbia as a location for property purchase because of the easily accessible and inexpensive natural gas from Alberta, along with the fact that Driftwood Creek is surrounded by rail, road, highly skilled labour, electricity and currently existing industrial facilities. MGX took action on the last facet of its southern British Columbia location by entering into Definitive Agreement with Tembec Inc. (Tembec) to acquire the Cranbrook mill site near Cranbrook, British Columbia.


    Cranbrook, British Columbia (Focus Corporation, 2013).

    The Cranbrook mill complex spans 38-hectares (98 acres) located within the Cranbrook industrial park. The mill site has remained in and out of operation over the past twenty years, and major infrastructure including buildings and a finger joint plant remain on site. MGX's CEO has noted that the acquisition of the Cranbrook mill site is an ideal fit for MGX because it provides a centralized location to process ore from its industrial mineral properties in the region. With the purchase of the mill, MGX gains the capability of moving forward on the supply chain to process the industrial minerals, including magnesite, it extracts from its properties in the Southern British Columbia region.

    This kind of direct action to achieve pillars of a strategic plan is what investors should be looking for in the junior mining space. MGX has moved beyond the point of extraction and is thinking bigger in terms of how it can improve its position as a company, and the financial position of its investors.


    Investment Opportunity

    MGX's stock value experienced its peak price in late August, reaching just over $0.70. The stock's price has decreased gradually since that point to its current rate of $0.53, but the true value of the stock has never been greater. Phase II of Driftwood Creek's drilling program delivered excellent results, with the holes dug producing evidence of expansive magnesite mineralized across the strike zones. With the Company's recent acquisition of Tembec's mill site, MGX will be able to extract and process the magnesite available within the Driftwood Creek property, and will apply the same capabilities to their other mining assets within the region. MGX Minerals Inc. (CSE: XMG) is continually preparing to move forward in monetizing the magnesite in Driftwood Creek, and with a relatively low share price available, we can't think of a better time to invest in such a high potential company.

  • Financial Repression – Governments Boost Their Coffers And Hold Down Interest Rates

    Treasury Secretary Jacob Lew said the government will run out of money to pay its bills sooner than previously thought around November 5, 2015. Lacking sufficient cash, it would be impossible for the United States of America to meet all of its obligations for the first time in our history.

    Again, another year, to increase the USA debt limit by the government. Will monetary and fiscal policy ever return to "sanity"? Will the political leaders ever become brave enough to quit spending more of the taxpayer's monies than they bring in without fear of losing elections? Will Americans ever elect someone who doesn't just promise them more and more "stuff," and who will just start acting responsibly with the nation's treasury?

    Political leaders continue to "kick the can down the road" over and over again. Now, like games that involve kicking something over and over again, it won't get rid of the economic grim reaper. Their "Keynesian mantra" is that the solution to debt is simply to spend more money. They believe it will stimulate an economic recovery that never occurred in the first place over all these years.

    Until a proper resolution is reached to these issues, debt will rule. When a nation loses control of its finances through debt, bad things happen in all other aspects of its existence. It loses its power and survival becomes a challenge and no longer a taken for granted right.

    What is really required is the attention to what is really going wrong. There must be a willingness to repair, reform, correct and heal it. This awareness is now growing throughout the world. There is a feeling that something is out of balance financially in the world. The issue of tax reform and getting rid of government waste continues to be discussed and that surely has not helped.

    The key of all this will be to get people back to work. The USA "unofficial" unemployment rate is approximately 21%. Let's correct these policies and activities that aren't working. Make them work again in new and different ways

    Why Is The Federal Reserve Bank of New York So Important?

    The Federal Reserve Bank of New York plays a special role in the Federal Reserve System for several reasons. First the reason for the New York Fed's special role is its active involvement in the bond and foreign exchange markets. The New York Fed houses the open market desk, which conducts open market operations, the purchase and sale of bonds, which determine the amount of reserves in the banking system. This is the process of how the FED creates liquidity and controls the money supply.

    The involvement in the Treasury securities market, as well as its walking-distance location near the New York and American Stock Exchanges, the officials at the Federal Reserve Bank of New York are in constant contact with the major domestic financial markets in the United States. In addition, the Federal Reserve Bank of New York also houses the foreign exchange desk, which conducts foreign exchange interventions on behalf of the Federal Reserve System and the U.S. Treasury. Its involvement in these financial markets, means that the New York Fed is an important source of information on what is happening in domestic and foreign financial markets, particularly during crisis periods, as well as a liaison between officials in the Federal Reserve System and private participants in the markets.

    Second, its district contains many of the largest commercial banks in the United States, the safety and soundness of which are paramount to the health of the U.S. financial system. The Federal Reserve Bank of New York conducts examinations of bank holding companies and state-chartered banks in its district, making it the supervisor of some of the most important financial institutions in our financial system. Not surprisingly, given this responsibility, the Bank Supervision group is one of the largest units of the New York Fed.

    The third reason for the Federal Reserve Bank of New York's prominence is that it is the only Federal Reserve Bank to be a member of the Bank for International Settlements (NASDAQ:BIS). Thus the president of the New York Fed, along with the chairman of the Board of Governors, represent the Federal Reserve System in its regular monthly meetings with other major central bankers and interaction with foreign exchange markets means that the New York Fed has a special role in international relations, both with other central bankers and with private market participants. Adding to its prominence in international circles is that the New York Fed is the repository for over $100 billion of the world's gold, an amount greater than the gold at Ft. Knox.

    Finally, the president of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, is the only permanent member of the FOMC among the Federal Reserve Bank presidents, serving as the vice chairman of the committee. Each of the Federal Reserve banks is a "quasi-public", part private and part government, institution owned by the private commercial banks in the district in which they serve. The member banks own stock in their Federal Reserve Bank. This is a requirement of membership. Originally, the FED was not responsible for the health of the economy. . Over time, it acquired the responsibility to promote a stable economy through its control of the money supply and its ability to influence interest rates. It is subject to the influence of Congress because of the legislation that structures it is written by Congress and subject to change at any time. It reports quarterly to the banking committees of the House and the Senate.

    Our debt problem is now out of control. Between 2007 and 2014, the total global debt increased by over 40%. Governments, financials, corporations and households have all increased their absolute debt levels in the last few years. The chart shows that total global debt has reached $200 trillion USD. World global output measured by the gross world product was around 76 trillion USD in 2013. This means that on a global scale we have a debt ratio of approximately 270% of the total yearly world output.

    (click to enlarge)

    In short, the Treasury is part of the executive branch of the US government. They must follow the direction of the President. The Federal Reserve is independent of the executive branch, almost like the Supreme Court. The voting members of the controlling body of the Fed are nominated by the President. The goal is to limit the impact of short-term politics on decisions about the money supply. Specifically, there is a concern is that if the Federal Reserve was not independent, politicians would seek to obtain short-term economic growth through expanding the money supply, at the cost of long-term inflation. But the fact of the matter is, everyone is addicted to creasing the money supply and every week that goes buy with this artificial stimuli the worse uglier things will be in the future for those not prepared.

    A Global Rest is required. Gold is the only asset I know that has no sort of counterparty risk and has been considered to be of value for thousands of years. I follow gold's price daily. I am currently awaiting for my Proprietary Trend Systems Analytics' Model to confirm that the bottom is in place so that I may load up on much more.

    I believe it is possible that this gold/silver/miners play alone could potentially fund an individual's retirement if invested in at the correct time. And I will be sharing this with members of my Gold newsletter

  • Will The FED Ever Pull The Trigger Under The Obama Administration? RE: Fixed Income Markets?

    "Liquidity crunch" is the watchword in the bond trading market that threatens to cause deep rifts in the financial market. The fixed income market in the U.S. finds itself suffering from the unintended consequence of injecting half a trillion dollars in the market in the forms of corporate and sovereign bonds.

    Companies in the US have offered record number of bonds this year with the assumption that the fed rates will remain low and investors will still have an increased appetite for fixed income financial instruments.

    And up until now they have been spot on in their predictions about the federal rates. On September 17, 2015, the Federal Reserve members had unanimously decided to keep the rates low at 0% to 0.25%. But with the U.S. corporate bond ballooning by an astounding 47% from $5.4 trillion at the end of 2008 to $8 trillion currently, the stage looks set for the bursting of the bond market bubble.

    Liquidity Crisis: A Fling or the Real Thing

    The size of the corporate bond market in the U.S. has increased by $2.6 trillion in the past seven years. However, most of the growth in the market has been concentrated in three types of buyers: i) Foreign Investors, ii) Mutual Funds, and iii) Insurance Companies, according to a report by Citigroup.


    This represents a serious concern that can have a significant knock-out impact on the entire US economy. If the Fed pulls the trigger and increases the rates for the first time in nearly a decade, it could result in increased selling - much more than the market could absorb - leading to what experts are calling a severe liquidity crunch in the U.S. (HYG, JNK, TBT, TLT, SHY, CSJ, TIP, LQD)

    The current situation in the bond market has the potential to bring the next financial crises that could have a ripple effect in every major industry in the U.S.

    The lack of liquidity that currently exist in the fixed income market is something that the bond buyers, sellers, and regulatory authority need to be concerned about. In the past there were more than 23 different type of investors but now we have only three. And that according to analysts is the main reason that the bond market could pop.

    All that is needed is a spark in the form of a fed rate hike that would fuel liquidity crises when the investors flee bonds. This shortage of liquidity could result in a fall in asset prices below their long run fundamental price, thereby deteriorating external financing conditions, a reduction in the number of market participants, or simply difficulty in trading assets.

    But, how did the liquidity crises started in the first place? Well, in the past big banks took an active part in the bond market. They acted as a market maker facilitating trade between the bond buyers and sellers. They maintained stability in the market by buying when the market wanted to sell in large lots, and selling in the case of the opposite situation.

    However, the new regulations and higher capital requirements meant that banks had to curtail their bond trading activities. It doesn't makes financial sense to trade in the market anymore. As a result the liquidity has all but dried up in the bond market.

    Liquidity in the context of bond market reflects how easily buyers and sellers can transact the bonds. In a liquid market markets can easily trade the bonds and at low transaction costs. An illiquid market, on the other hand, would lead to wild and instantaneous swings in the prices.

    A Single Spark Could Lead to a Liquidity Crunch

    According to an estimate by JPMorgan Chase about five years ago, you could trade around $280 million worth of bonds in the U.S. treasury market without affecting the price. Now, that figure has gone down to just $80 million, which represents a decline of more than 70%.

    Reduced liquidity represents a warning shot according to JPMorgan CEO Jamie Dimon as when the panic sets in there won't be anyone buying the bonds. The lack of demand for the bonds serve is the main crux of a liquidity crisis.

    A single hiccup in the market like the fed raising its interest rate could lead to great strain in the market especially for small bond owners. Without adequate liquidity, the sellers will not see lower prices. In fact they will see no prices at all as there won't be anyone major market mover stepping in with the intention of stabilizing the prices, a part that has been played by banks in the past.

    The mutual funds and Wall Street money managers do not have that much funds to purchase depreciated bonds.

    International Warnings about the Bond Market Collapse

    Earlier this year, Robert Stheeman, head UK Debt Management Office, warned that the gilt market has been threatened by falling liquidity in the bond market.

    Recall the unprecedented "flash crash" of the Germany's 10-year Treasury yields whose primary factor was its faltering liquidity. The sudden drop was extraordinary because the Treasuries are supposed to be the most "liquid" market on the globe.

    The most pressing problem is occurring in the corporate bond market where the post-financial crisis era's ultra loose monetary policies (pursued by the European Central Bank, the Federal Reserve, and the Bank of England) caused a torrent of bond insurance during the recent years as companies tried to capitalize on the rock bottom interest rates.

    Imagine the state of the European and British companies (excluding banks) who sold a combined $435.3bn of investment-grade debt last year, and $458.5bn in 2013. This was possible because of the high level of issuance during the post-financial crisis.

    These issuances have occurred in the primary market (where they have grown). However, they are not assured the required level of liquidity in the secondary market to insure a balance. As liquidity dries up, an imbalance in the secondary market has been created, caused ironically by the regulations aimed at averting the 2008 crisis.

    The Bank for International Settlements has also cautioned that conditions in the less liquid securities is deteriorating as liquidity concentrates in the more readily traded securities whereas Edwin Schooling-Latter from Financial Conduct Authority pointed out (earlier this year) that the reduced liquidity in corporate bonds now warrants "careful regulatory monitoring".

    However, the most impacting warning had already been delivered November last year when a survey of traders, analysts, and investors of the European corporate bonds by the International Capital Market Association (ICMA) concluded that "meltdown" of a global credit markets was unavoidable

    Now, we come to the main question that given the present market position. Will the Feds ever pull the trigger under the current Obama Administration?

    The answer to this looks like a complete No. Although market pundits were predicting, rather praying, that the fund rates would rise this month, the Feds took the opposite decision and decided unanimously to maintain the rates for the time being.

    The reason is that it will not just be the corporate bonds that would be hurt by the collapse in bond prices. The sovereign bond will also be hit with unprecedented and 'flash' crash. The sudden drop in yields will be more significant for Treasury bonds as they are considered the most liquid all over the world.

    Janet Yellen, the Fed Chairman, has not given any timeframe as to when the Feds would raise the rates. "I can't give you a recipe for exactly what we're looking to see," she had said airing her views about the fund rates.

    However, the reasons for the feds reluctance to hike the rates are not that hard to decipher. The inflation is running low, unemployment and the real wages remain flat. Unless these two factors start to spiral out of control, the Fed has no incentive to strengthen the rates at the moment.

    In addition, concerns about economic situation in China, which is the biggest bondholder, is also what is holding the current administration to increase the fund rates. Any further strain in the worlds' second largest economy could lead a global economic meltdown and would hurt U.S. exports, which had exceeded $116 billion on average in the past five years. It would greatly hurt the American manufacturers and may well lead to another economic recession in the U.S.

    Final Remarks

    Regulators have tried real hard to insure that the economy and financial system could avert, or at least withstand moments similar to 2008, when Lehman crashed; 1994, when US rates rose aggressively; and 1987, when stocks crashed.

    Given that the bond market is much larger than the equity market, and that investors have piled into fixed income in the recent years, the fears of a bond market liquidity crunch are very real.

    Therefore, it's important that the Feds take steps to prevent a mass selloff of bonds in case it decides to raise the rates. Because if the credit investors attempt to sell their bonds in masses, and head for the exit, the liquidity in the market has the potential to create a rift similar, if not larger, in magnitude to the recent credit crunch experienced in 2008 that shook the very foundation of the global financial market.
