    Summary: Guy Baker comes on the show to discuss the progression of the markets, and how to decide what to do next in the current economical circumstances. Since the market is lacking stability at the moment, it's best to wait for it to stabilize before jumping in; if you are already in it, however, then it's best to stay the course. No one can time the markets with exact precision, and there are a number of factors that spontaneously affect businesses and stocks at any given time. Tune in for our in depth discussion about some of these things. Highlights: -How do you decide whether to stay or go when navigating the markets? -Markets go up and down; if you look at the history of the markets, you can identify these ups and downs. You must ask yourself whether the return on the market has been 10% throughout history, and if it is going to stay this way -If you're in the market, stay in the market. But if you're out of it right now, it may be best to wait for more stability before re-entering -There is no evidence that anyone can time the market effectively year in and year out—most people that encounter success in the markets just get lucky -ETFs don't have the gains/losses or fees that mutual funds have -Picking stocks is like a gamble -You're better off investing in a largely diversified portfolio with low fees -Stocks are based on projected income; the important consideration becomes income and appreciation -Three basic currents in the market -The markets are a willing buyer and seller that are happy -Many emotional factors dictate what happens in trading -Markets perform based on expected historical return -There isn't much stability or support behind crypto -There's the industrial bubble, the technological bubble, and the government bubble -Inflation is necessary in a growing, vibrant economy Useful Links: Financial Survival Network Wealth Teams

    Summary: The price of gold has been resilient considering what's happening in the markets, and the mining sector has been thrown out with the growth stocks. Will the mining stocks start making money any time soon? I sit down and chat with Gwen Preston, known as the ‘Resource Maven,' and she explains how investing methods have largely shifted as a result of the pandemic.

It seems that the cycle is out of touch with conventional/current investor expectations and timing -Some people who haven't had to learn the bad lessons (such as those back in 2009) may learn their first one now -Finance has been reduced down to apps Useful Links: Financial Survival Network Resource Maven

    Tier One Silver to Drill High-Grade Hurricane Silver Project

    Play Episode Listen Later May 23, 2022 21:43

    Tier One Silver's CEO Peter Dembicki and SVP of Exploration Christian Rios sat down with us for a sponsor update. The excitement was palpable as Peter explained that the company had entered into a community agreement which will allow for exploration of the Ñañohuayco, San Cipriano and Morro Culispata copper-nickel-platinum-palladium-silver prospects. This clears the way Tier One to start surface work and drilling (once the permit is issued). The excitement is clearly warranted. In 2009 an initial 10 hole 1,061 meter drill program by the previous operator intersected 14 m of 2.59% copper, 0.62% nickel, 311 g/t cobalt, 0.3 g/t platinum and 0.55 g/t palladium, making this is a high priority target. .   SVP Rios is anxious to get exploration started. Previously, he was involved in the world-class discovery of the Santa Ana and Corani silver-lead-zinc deposits. His decades of Peruvian experience combined with his extensive exploration, mining development and operations background make him a vital part of the team. He observes that, “[Just] 1000 meters has been drilled. We need to continue this. There's an area which has values up to 44% copper [emphasis added].” There's no telling how rich and productive Hurricane will become. Peter and Christian are moving ahead quickly; drilling will start shortly and results will then follow. Which is why we're long-term holders of Tier One shares.

    Stagflation is here: GDP is shrinking while prices continue to rise.  Fed has no choice but to keep raising rates and stocks are responding normally to this, by tanking (Friday was brutal). The FAANG stocks in particular have stopped propping up the market. They led the market up and now they're leading it down. The sign of a true leader. Housing affordability is at the worst level ever. Higher rates and higher prices must cause the housing market to slow down. The recession is already here. The understating of the inflation rate has hidden real negative GDP growth over the past 2-3 quarters. US government responds to Musk buying Twitter by launching a Ministry of Truth -- housed in Homeland Security and run by a cartoon villain.  Russia/Ukraine war is settling into a quagmire AND getting even more dangerous as Nato sends more weapons. This is clearly a Nato operation to weaken Russia.  But it might backfire on the dollar.

    We sat down with Trillion Energy's CEO Arthur Halleran for a long-awaited sponsor update. Trillion's Black Sea drill program has been funded via a recent oversubscribed C$18mm placement. The drill rig is on order and all necessary equipment and materials are paid for. Art anticipates spudding of the first well in July and he's to have 17 producing wells in place. There's also upside exploration potential as well, but Trillion is focusing on the proven reserves and production first. Some dilution resulted from the required financing. However, unlike most such stories, the increased shares have been more than offset by the $18 (per thousand cubic feet) price they're getting, nearly triple last year's price. With recent geopolitical issues, there's little chance that Natgas's price will decline in the foreseeable future. Thus, the potential payoff to shareholders is substantial. We also covered the company's Bulgarian project. Art estimates there's 1 trillion cubic feet in this coal bed methane project. Bulgaria's Natgas price stands at a record high $27. The drilling technology to capture this gas is available and Art knows how to get it done. The past pandemic year has been a difficult one for Trillion. Financing became difficult to finalize, but Art never lost faith. Now the road ahead is looking better than ever, which is why this company remains our largest holding.

    Ivan Bebek Co-Founder, President, Chief Executive Officer of Coppernico Metals, formerly known as Sombrero Resources, was on to bring you the latest sponsor update. (We own shares). First off, Ivan explained the recent name change. Coppernico plays off the words copper and nickel and the legendary mathematician/astronomer Copernicus, who discovered that the planets revolve around the sun. It's all part of his plan to make legendary discoveries of copper and nickel. There have been a number of recent personnel changes, which will prove crucial to Coppernico's future. Marie-Hélène Turgeon is now a director and ESG advisor. She has 20+ years of environment management and compliance, working with Latin American mining concerns. She will help the company finalize its community agreements. Tim Kinglesy comes on as VP of Exploration. He has 18+ years of precious and base metal exploration in the Americas (Peru, Canada and Alaska). Upon joining the company, he stated, “I'm not here to drill 50-meter step-outs. I want to drill 500 to 1000-meter step-outs and go find something really big.” Completing the team is Margaux Villalpando, investor relations manager, with extensive mining sector experience in client and stakeholder relations. Coppernico's TSX listing is contingent upon its access to the Sombrero project, which is awaiting community consent. It's a complicated process to which the company has already devoted much time and effort. Ivan believes project access will soon be a fait accompli, as the affected communities have already benefited greatly from Coppernico's efforts, and have so much more to gain. As usual, there's much more coming. The team is currently reviewing a number of other potential large-scale South American projects. As Ivan said, “The opportunities have never been greater.” If anyone could do these projects, the upside wouldn't be so enormous. The reconstituted team is now quickly working towards a successful conclusion.
