My Top picks.
Primary Theme; 2020 starts us in the late 2nd or early 3rd inning of the PM bull. 2nd quarter of attention-grabbing mining results due to higher metals prices will bring in Generalist momentum capital, Massive Short interest in Comex will draw further attention and money into the miners. However portfolio positions do not require higher gold and silver prices to advance and miners will continue their advances based more on generalist interest after an initial spurt of the S&P/Dow complex pauses heavily overbought. Repo is likely from Deutsche Bank death and derivatives blowback around the world. Not much being said about the Fed Repos going to important foreign banks. Deutsche Death to be announced later this year. US economy will continue to deteriorate.
Top sector pick: Royalty Streamers are a huge plus in my book right now. They have been quietly picking up revenue streams via NSR and Streaming agreements and do not incur the risks of the mining operations themselves.
Watch Ross Beatty. He's not done making Equinox a 1-million+ ounce gold producer by 2023. The man is having a blast putting deals together. Expect more acquistions along the way.
