Gold is a good diversifier and plays a role in any good equity portfolio but be cautious and don't have too much exposure. He prizes geopolitical stability and certainty so prefers something like Barrick (ABX-T) instead of this company.

Largest pure play copper name around. Almost like an ETF for copper. Diversified in terms of its assets and mines. It’s cheap compared to ABX. There is considerable upside for pure play copper names.

Likes the copper space. Copper has come down in response to some of the fears of the softness, but longer-term this is a great name to own. Over summer, it will be a bit wobbly because cyclicals do not do well in the summer.

Largest copper producer on the planet. Copper production remains in deficit in the future. Tremendous upside. A very good way to play copper.

Wonderful company but he is now almost out of it. Will make a lot of money in the next little while but he wonders if copper is going to roll over a little. If you own don’t be afraid to take profits.

Copper. Gone from $1 to roughly $4 a pound. If you think copper is going significantly higher, you want a company with highest costs and worst balance sheets where earnings will be most sensitive to higher prices. But if you believe copper will stay where it is (or fall), you want lowest costs and cleanest balance sheets such as this, which is dirt-cheap.

“The” copper company globally. (Copper/gold.) Low cost producer. Wouldn’t be surprised if someone doesn’t take a run at them as an acquisition.

Largest pure play mining company globally. Also have assets in gold and molybdenum. Outlook for copper is the best for near and long-term with the growth and demand from China. Forward PE is 11X, which is pretty cheap.

Copper. A short-term great way to make income. He bought at $63.20 and sold September call options at $65 strike giving him $1.74 for 15 days, about a 3% yield.
