  • A Premier Deal For Sandstorm Gold [View article]
    One wonders if the few royalty companies that exist could stand the idea of another being created. I am happy for Sandstorm that according to your analysis it does make sense for them. I owned Bridgeport Ventures shares that brought the cash into the merger with the royalty division of Premier Gold to form the new company.

  • Sell Silver Now? [View article]
    Perhaps author wandered over from an area of fake ETF's, that are little more than algorithms with the name of the sponsor ETF issuer promising to track a particular result and pay off if this or the inverse of this happens. This fuzziness appears at the bottom when talking about a couple of just such etf's, at least these etf's speculate about something real - silver.

    The BIG problem with author's thesis is silver isn't being bought in a world described by Economics 101, its being bought in a world of central banks laying in real assets against future strife. You don't include this in your demand/supply equation - you'd better think about it if you want some money left over - if you actually do engage in shorting silver.

  • 2 Gold Stocks With Recent Insider Buying [View article]
    It's so interesting that you came out with the article because these are the very same two companies I researched at length in many hours this week. I can recommend reader's attention to these two stocks because for the amount of money investors put into these issues you get more silver or gold mined than from almost any other comparable companies. This is a very appropriate article.

  • Buy This Silver Stock To Shine Up Your Portfolio [View article]
    SLW is way established as a royalty company. A brand new royalty company is forming right now by the merger between two companies. The common stock of one of these companies trades in the U.S. as BPVIF. To show you you haven't missed the precious metals price rise, when Gold was @1600 , BPVIF was @ 0.55 - today Gold is @1735 BPV@0.53. Look at SLW historical price and see its good to be in early, and buying BPVIF now is an early in.

  • Silver Wheaton: A Fantastic Long-Term Play And Hedge Against Inflation [View article]
    There are so few royalty stream companies! I found a new one forming from a spinoff from canadian company Premier Gold (TSE:PG) merging with Bridgeport Ventures (TSE:BPV) (PINK:BPVIF). Someone buying Bridgeport common BPVIF right now will have their shares become common shares of the new merged company, and to boot will receive .375 warrant per share right to purchase of common shares in the future. I wonder how many employees the new company will have? Premier Gold started this a year ago as a royalty division of its company, now is spinning their division off, Bridgeport is putting its entire company into merging into the new company, and Bridgeport brought about $19m cash into the deal. Premier Royalty established multiple streams even in the one year, and with the cash coming in from Bridgeport the means are there to establish more immediately. Diversify by owning royalty companies, diversify more by owning multiple royalty companies.\

  • Silver Wheaton: Defense From Currency Fluctuations [View article]
    Silver Wheaton is maybe best because one stock is diversified with so many different royalty streams. Silver Wheaton is a mature play, its well known, has been around for awhile, highly regarded. Getting in on the ground floor of a royalty stream company there's a new one forming from a spinoff from canadian company Premier Gold (TSE:PG) merging with Bridgeport Ventures (TSE:BPV) (PINK:BPVIF). Someone buying Bridgeport common BPVIF right now will have their shares become common shares of the new merged company, and to boot will receive .375 warrant per share right to purchase of common shares in the future.

  • Franco-Nevada Corporation: The Best Performing Gold Play [View article]
    Yes, the title was a misdiscription, my guess the author was trying to introduce the subject of royalty streaming companies to readers interested in mining who hadn't heard of the royalty streaming model alternative to participate in the sector.

  • Franco-Nevada Corporation: The Best Performing Gold Play [View article]
    Sandstorm just had its american major exchange debut on NYSEMKT: SAND 08/20/12.

    Under the radar, and just forming now, is a new streaming company being spun off from TSX:PG Premier Gold and merged with a company that had cash to bring into the deal TSX:BPV. Right now someone buying BPV common shares will find a stock position in the new company, and also receive .375 of a common share warrant for each common share. There are still very, very few gold royalty stream companies, and this is the newest one, and has a most promising beginning having already pre spin-off bought a number of quality gold streams, and will continue to buy more post-merger with the large amount of cash BPV is bringing into the merger. BPVIF is the symbol U.S. investors can trade.

  • United States Antimony Corp.: A Commodity Stock That Could Fall 80% [View article]
    They are in a "sold-out condition".

    I think maybe what bothers you about this company is that they have revenue. You could be talking about how many hundreds of companies of comparable market cap that have NO revenues, But no, here is a company with a unique story, and you have to down it. This is a company in continuous smelting history for how many decades? But you don't like it. There was a reference to comparing UAMY to Molycorp in a magazine article. What was the market cap Molycorp attained and had never smelted an ounce? I can see you don't like experience, don't like revenue, don't like production, don't like expansion, don't like growth, don't like anything about anything successful.

  • United States Antimony Corp.: A Commodity Stock That Could Fall 80% [View article]
    "No one can dispute that there is currently no antimony mine production in the U.S., and that UAMY owns the only smelter in Montana."

    Wouldn't the correct way to say this is 'UAMY owns the only smelter in 50 states'?

    Will the author announce his mis-statement was another of his accidents?

  • African safari: Execs with coffee companies are looking to the depths of Sudan to find a new coffee bean that will support increased production and be climate-resistant. Demand has been outpacing supply in the industry, keeping coffee players such as SBUX, GMCR, PEET, and JVA eager to reign in commodity prices with a magic new bean.  [View news story]
    It's surprising, but coffee has many genetic relatives, and some of them can be made into coffee.
