Checking In with Max Porterfield of Callinex Mines

Back in 2016, we got acquainted with Max Porterfield and his company, Callinex Mines. With the US dollar falling and commodity prices surging, we thought it would be beneficial to check in with Max for an update.

As you know, one of our primary focuses for 2018 is the falling dollar and resultant rally in commodities. Specific within the sector, metals such as zinc have already seen an incredible move to the upside. The chart below appears to show that the current rally is still going strong.

Callinex Mines seems to be uniquely positioned within the sector so it was great to hear from Max again today. Among the topics we discuss:

  • how the falling dollar and surging demand are influencing all commodities
  • Trump's US infrastructure plan and its impact on industrial metals
  • the primary drivers of the ongoing rally in zinc prices
  • why Callinex is uniquely positioned to profit from this growth

Please be certain to take a few minutes to listen to this podcast. When you're finished, perform your own due diligence and then decide whether a company such as Callinex deserves a spot in your portfolio of mining shares.

Like a lot of asset classes

bit coin got extremely over bought

The problem with almost all asset classes with the exception of gold and silver, we've entered a whole new world of extreme slogans.

We're now at extremely extreme overboughtiness.

When the market turns, we'll get the other side of the trade.

Extremely extreme oversoldiness.

The red light is flashing really really red right now.

When it gets really really really red don't BTFD. Sell the shit. Get the hell out.

This is not trading advice. Prior performance is no assurance of future results

On occasion I tell wifey exactly that, but the dear sweet girl still tells me.

"Honey, take your boner pills like a good boy"

When you're out of the markets you'll understand that past performance's got nuttin' to do with capital accumulation.

Silver Purchase

I had to make a purchase on the silver maples @ $1.29 over spot at Provident.

Also have Philharmonics at .99 over spot.

Maples at $18.50 could not pass on that one.

Thanks Turd - timely interview

I am on the fence with Callinex. I bought and then sold and bought again recently and am down about 11%. My concern is more about timing not the company. The stock is a good buy until the PEA comes out but are the precious metal stocks going to go up faster than the zinc stocks in the short term. I may sell and then buy in again in March.

The last time the USTreasury Yield Spread went almost totally flat was immediately before the 2007-2008 subprime mortgage crisis. It served as the key signal, and accurately so, for what was to come in the following several months.
