  • Blood In The Streets: Why I Bought More Sandstorm Today
       • Nov. 1, 2014 SAND 31 Comments

    Summary

    • Sandstorm Gold dropped more than 12% to $2.92 Thursday as the price of gold fell to $1,190.
    • These are levels we haven't seen since the company first launched in 2009; the RSI reached sub-25 today, indicated shares are very oversold.
    • I think the sell-off has been completely overblown for a few reasons, and I added shares today as a result.

    • With an enterprise value of approx. $51.5 million, 4+ million ounces in gold resources and substantial exploration and production upside, shares are significantly undervalued.

    • Endeavour is focused on profitability, with all-in sustaining costs dropping rapidly; the stock should continue to outperform.

    • Orca Gold has flown under the radar, but not for long. The company is led by a management team with proven success.
  • Kaminak Gold: Coffee Project Is Very Attractive, Big Upside Ahead
       • Jun. 30, 2014 KMKGF 2 Comments

    Summary

    • Kaminak Gold's PEA on its Coffee Gold Project showed robust economics, with a pre-tax NPV of $522 and an internal rate of return of 32.8% at $1250/AU.
    • Average gold production at the mine would yield 167,000 ounces at super-low all-in costs of $688, which would be among the lowest in the industry.
    • Kaminak currently has a market cap of just $82 million; a takeover of the company at a premium is a strong possibility in my view.

       • Jun. 13, 2014 TPRFF 3 Comments

    Summary

    • Gran Colombia Gold is an undervalued gold miner in the process of a major turnaround.
    • The company's cost reduction efforts at its Segovia mine have been successful so far, with AISC dropping to $1,197 in Q1 2014 and further reductions expected.
    • Gran Colombia is a high-risk, super high-reward investment; I believe the company offers investors multi-bagger upside potential and huge leverage to the price of gold. .

    • Sandstorm Gold has one of the most solid balance sheets in the gold sector, with over $110 million in cash, zero debt and $100 million line of credit available.
