This is a basket of gold stocks. The way he would play gold is to own a gold stock but not to hang on to it as a crisis insurance. Write calls against at least 70% of that portfolio, drive in very good cash flow against what you are getting, and you'll be quite happy with that position. Options are a high risk venture, no matter how you slice it.

The US$ has declined and as gold is always priced in US$, this fell also. Worried about potential inflation and further weakness in the US$. A good way to play gold.

(A Top Pick February 10/05. Up 8%.) A classic example of how seasonality works. It works most of the time, but not all the time.

(A Top Pick May 11/05. Up 22%.) Likes gold and thinks it's going higher, but it's pretty fully priced. Any pull back to the trend line would be a buying opportunity.

Euro recently broke support, while gold held. Feels that gold has now taken the position where the Euro used to be. Feels that the bear in gold is over.

A defensive play. At its 52 week low. Feels the group is undervalued relative to where gold is and where it will be a year from now.

A defensive play. Gold is a reasonable hedge if you don't see very much going on in the equity markets.

Seasonality for gold is end of January to end of May, but it's starting later this year. The last couple of days it's starting to click in. Gold stocks in Canada are actually outperforming the gold price which is an indicator that people are expecting gold prices to go higher. Companies usually price in the ground at $325, but expect to raise this to $350/375.

Has a nice upward trend with pretty good support at about $47. From an investment point of view, it makes sense to hold right through until late next year. Expecting US$ to temporarily strengthen causing gold to drop to around $430 and then go over $500. Any weakness will be a buying opportunity.

Gives a wide choice of gold companies with Placer and Barrick being the larger percentage. Also, hedging is only about 12% using this and that is not too bad. Probably won't be a long term hold.
