For our final A2A of 2016, we were joined today by independent mining analyst Brent Cook. While we hope that all A2As are beneficial, this one was particularly valuable as Brent's wisdom and experience can actually help to make (and save) you some fiat. Therefore, please be sure to give this a listen.
Today's show began with a general discussion of the year in review as well as Brent's take on whether mining CEOs will now have a different view of the Bullion Banks in light of the recent discoveries of coercion and price manipulation. From there, Brent shares his opinion on more than twenty individual companies and their prospects, the names of which were submitted by Vault subscribers here at TFMR.
Again, I think you'll find this to be an extraordinarily helpful podcast and I urge you to give it a thorough listen.
