Q: looking at my precious metals holdings over the years they have either lost money or done nothing with the exception of LUX. Is it time to switch this allocation to bitcoin/ethereum and give up on gold?

Q: I find inside buying is potentially worthwhile evidence of future prospects of a company. Just a hunch, but I am not sure inside buying or selling can tell me much about gold companies, especially not with the more established companies. Gold does seem quite out of favour, and so I think it would be worthwhile to park some of my idle cash (I am 25% cash, because I just am not finding too many bargains) in one or two large cap and small cap companies: The chart and divy of Yamana looks intriguing. Can you suggest any up and coming junior miners?

Q: Hi,

These stocks listed make up the core position of my Canadian and US holdings.

Would you consider this list to be a good one for a 3-5 year plus time horizon? I am able to tolerate high risk .

Q: Hi,

I was sitting on a nice gain with DNG and because I am concerned about increasing political risk in Peru I decided to take the profit and sell. I would still like something in my portfolio that gives me exposure to gold. Preferably on the conservative side and with a dividend. What would your suggestions be?

Q: Hi,
I hold the above companies in my TFSA and would like to make the portfolio more concentrated for better upside potential. If you were forced to cut three positions and add the proceeds to any of the existing holdings, which oneís would you choose? Long term growth is the only objective.

Q: Can you please give your thesis on MMX? My understanding is that it is a royalty company that will do well if prices of silver / gold go up because they will get more royalties - how does that work? Do they give money to exploration companies in exchange for royalties, and we are counting on mgmt to pick good projects given their expertise? How many properties are cash producing vs speculative?

Also, the PE ratio at ~100 seems really high, but is that the best way to be looking at it?

I'm happy with high growth, but what happens if silver/gold prices stay low for another year or two, are they in trouble?

Thank you!

Q: In the past year, INK Reports show company officer and director insider net selling activity levels for AEM, AGI, PGM and WDO are significantly higher than levels for KL and MMX. I realize there are many reasons why insiders might decide to sell, but is it a red flag for investors when net selling activity reaches the levels exhibited by company officers and directors of AEM, AGI, PGM and WDO?

Q: Why is there such a large discrepancy between these two royalty company share price performance over the last year? MTA revenues seem like they are abysmal (and look like they declined?) while MMX revenues increased significantly (~30%). Would a lateral move from MTA to MMX be a good idea at this time?

Q: Hello all, I am hoping you can compare these two companies in terms of the different metals they are exposed to (if you have the percentages at your disposal so much the better). Also, could you provide a mini-risk assessment of the two? I know their are differences as to royalty versus operator, market cap, geography and valuation, and Iím sure many other things, but Iím having trouble assessing it all.

Thank you!
