Thursday Conversation - Mickey Fulp

The Mercenary Geologist

Mickey Fulp, "The Mercenary Geologist", returns today for a fun-filled discussion of the metals, the miners and the information someone must correctly analyze when building a diversified portfolio of mining shares.

Again, you can find more information about Mickey and his terrific service by visiting his website: www.goldgeologist.com. Once there, be sure to sign up for the FREE weekly email newsletter. If we're correct in expecting higher precious metal prices in 2020, gaining as much information as possible regarding the mining shares is paramount to success.

For this call, Mickey and I primarily focus upon three main topics:

  • Mickey's macro forecast for 2020
  • What key information investors must analyze for senior producers, junior producers and the exploration companies
  • Three key names he's following closely in 2020

Thanks again to Mickey for his time today. Please be sure to give this podcast a thorough listen.

Or maybe that's Turd on the 9th hole of the North Vegas Pro Am Billy Goat Acres Golf Club and Casino in beautiful downtown Pioche Nevada

If it was me I'd nominate Red Skelton and Christopher Walken to the FRB.

So, we're at the TFMR lunch bunch today. Had a lot of fun. Until everyone starts pulling out their smartass phones. One's showing us the 3 of the most valuable Morgans IN THE WORLD. That's my kind of internet porn.

Another pulled up some fast food ETF, all of which are up 400% while AG sits in the corner sucking his thumb.

Another one's showing other rare coins and someone else had some neat stuff for this session of SHOW and TELL

I'll show ya show and tell!

Me with my shit for brains dumb phone, one of my homies said I should put embed it in lucite and sell it on EBay 20 years in the future.

Someone else said I should use it for target practice ewhile it's in my shirt pocket; makin' me the Rodney Dangerfield of Pirate Pizza.

I start feeling some some DOLE GEEZER pushing my walker along the 405 at rush hour while a bunch of propellerheads race by me at light speed in their self driving AI controlled Teslas doing Mach 2.

Stop the world I want to get off!!!

I guess it's time. Samsung Galaxy 9. Meh! Can't let this crusty crew show me up any more.

Besides which, there's a bazillion digital coupon offers available on the net.

Nuther thing. MLK day this coming Monday. We gotta be sensitive to these things. I'm good with that.

Black Friday, While Elephant, Black Swan.

Careful, they might be racist, yanno.

Sing along if you want to:

"If one of these things, it comes your way; ya gotta; gotta know

It's a big ass Sigma 6 shit storm; it's comin'; comin' your way

If you ain't prepped n stacked n stocked you're too late for the show

All I can say is run and hide; just try to get away

Some tell me white elephant, it's makes a real good meal

Others tell me Black Swan's tasty if you cook the bird just right

Don't matter none the colors, there's none that's really real

But I like Black Swan under glass and eat Jumbo in one bite"

Keep stackin'

The way Au is "Acting" (very well, imo) going into Rollover,

if I had any ballz I would go long a few more Aprils, but,

my BP has already rocketed to 200 over 100 and I can no longer sleep.

Think Alex in Clockwork Orange.
