Investment Q&A

Not investment advice or solicitation to buy/sell securities. Do your own due diligence and/or consult an advisor.

Q: Is there any particular reason why the miners are doing so poorly against the price of gold? Is this a buying opportunity or is the market anticipating a downturn in gold prices? Would you prefer buying the metal (eg. GLD) or the miners (eg. AEM, ABX, BTO)?

Q: Peter,

There seems to be some love returning to the beleagured Canadian small/micro cap stocks. Given how much they have declined, it looks like there is decent upside if the recovery continues.

On this note, do you see STC as a name that has not yet joined the party (with PAY, NVEI, LSPD, DTOL, DCBO, etc., already on the move) and has some decent potential here?

What would be your top three picks in this space at this time?

Thanks for your outstanding service,

Q: For a RRIF withdrawal, I'm thinking of switching either FSZ, NWH or BTO (all of which are down) to a TFSA .

Which of these do you think has more upside potential?

Q: Hello Gentlemen

I am quite bullish on gold over the next while. I own AEM which is up 23 % KRR which is up 38% and KNT which, believe it or not is down 5%.

My question is should I continue to hold KNT which has proven to be a real laggard in the space and whose price is down over the past year despite the metal surging.

If you think I should hold on to it please tell me why. If you think there are better options with better upside please let me know in priority of how strong you feel.

Q: I hold YRI in my TFSA a/c and it has done well. It is now to be acquired by major Gold co. offering some cash and fractions of shares. I find it a problem to carry a few shares here and there. I am thinking of selling YRI and buying B2B to maintain my position in gold. Please advise if there are junior gold co. better than B2B.

Q: Thanks for answereing my question on AEM. I share your negativity towards this report.

Do you still like gold representation in the portfolio given whats happening to interest rates, the US $ etc.

If yes, what would you replace AEM with in the portfolio. My intent will be to sell it today.

Q: Please comment on the SBB takeover by BTO. The large sell off implies the market did not like the deal. Is this a good long term deal that will provide value to BTO or did they over pay. Perhaps investors are expecting that there are hidden issues with the mine and that BTO will end up spending more to develop the permitted mine. Thanks.

Q: I'm interested in re-entering the gold mining market with central banks around the world are starting to increase their gold reserves. I used own these three names - YRI, BTO, and FNV - in the past. I'm surprised that all three are now dividend payers!

Would you be interested in these three names again at this juncture? Kindly rank them in the order of preference and also please add if there are other gold miner names that I should consider (regardless of yield).
