A Visit with Max Porterfield of Callinex Mines


As you know, we've been trying to feature certain mining shares here in 2016 as a way of helping these companies to raise their overall visibility. To that end, earlier today I had the pleasure to visit with Max Porterfield, CEO of Callinex Mines.

In this brief call, Max and I discuss:

  • the resource sector, in general, and the prospects for base metals as well as precious metals
  • the team he's put together at Callinex and why that makes them such an intriguing exploration company
  • the recent news of some major, outside investors taking a position in his company

Though investing in exploration companies certainly isn't for everyone, I do think that nearly everyone will benefit by having listened to this discussion.

Rotten apples?

Apple expected to release horrendous financials later this afternoon.

Will the next bankster bubble be apple-loans, or i-loans for phones?

All I can say for sure is the banksters will squeeze every last drop of blood from the debt bubbles, and then squeeze them again, and again, and again. Perhaps when the flow reduces below "bankster-super-wealth" sustaining levels, they'll begin a nail gun campaign in earnest, to reduce their own number. That oughta be fun to watch.

Re: Corbett Yuan Fix Video

IMO James Corbett does a lot of good research. But, 4 years ago a very ill Bob Chapman asked Corbett to help him put out his news letter when he was too sick to do it himself. (I believe Corbett is still writing that newsletter - after Bob passed away, but I'm not sure. I no longer subscribe to it.) Many times over these 4 years, I have heard people refer to Corbett as an 'expert' on economics and the financial markets in interviews. He is not an expert, but I've never heard him correct anyone on this - not once. He is a guy with an English degree who went to Japan to teach English to Japanese people. He was never involved in any way with finance or the markets. Was never a broker, trader, or economist & has no experience in these areas.

I liked when Corbett interviewed true experts on these matters. And, I do like his work in other subject areas.

Fix'd it. I think...

To be honest, I think this

To be honest, I think this site just reinforces my belief that math matters. Math doesn't lie. I really don't care what OI is, or that the 50 crossed the 200 or the 100 crossed the 50, or you crossed the street with your girlfriend. That is important for traders and there are many here and I think it's good stuff for them.

Pill just stack a little at a time.

Thanks Boggs.

If that wasn't sincere then I don't know what is. That carries a lot more for me than slick.

Off topic: Because I'm a visual person, is this "chart" correct as far as when the Shanghai markets are open?

I got the times from the SGE white paper.

Thought I would try, I've owned a few successful businesses and done fairly well, that's where I spend my time. However I believe this whole shit show (from the fermenting CB shit printing) is going to blow.

Boggs Taking all the losses

Dear friend - you are far too trusting. You and only you should manage your wealth. Bernie Madoff was extremely successful, respected and trusted. It takes all kinds.

I too heard the siren song of EGO! A sad relationship that went downhill rapidly along with my brokerage account.
