BTO vs PAAS? You can do well in both. He likes the growth with PAAS silver production. Silver prices should do well relative to gold. He would favour PAAS. BTO may be looking to issue shares and this could be viewed as dilutive.

A long-term hold with many holdings in Latin America, Mali and Africa--doesn't understand the geopolitics in the last two areas, so he's wary. Has a $6.50-7 target. His firm has a buy signal. You can average down here.

It is a reasonable size. It has a pretty big PE. It is not free cash flow positive. The big call is where you think the price of gold is going to go. The rising deficit of the US is significant, 5% of GDP. Overall gold at the moment will reflect concerns about inflation. The price has not driven producers. This stock is reasonably priced.

B2GOLD (BTO-T) vs Alamos Gold (AGI-T) He wouldn't buy neither of the two, but if he had to choose he prefers BTO-T. BTO-T is forming more of a symmetrical triangle with the bottom going up and the top going down. You can only buy this kind of stock on a breakout to the upside. Eventually it'll break down one side or the other. AGI-T is in a less favorable trend. The lows are more or less getting lowerish. He would only buy this if it broke out on the upside.

Seasonally, this has a history of bottoming around the 2nd week in December, and moving higher through into March. Every year we get the PDAC conference in Toronto around the beginning of March. A lot of gold guys come in giving lots of good news, and gold stocks have a tendency to peak right around the time of the conference. The chart shows this has already formed a base and triangle pattern. A move above the triangle pattern will tell you that the period of seasonal strength has once again come into force. We are not there yet, but it will probably show up in the next 2 weeks.

Gold seasonality is really from the end of July to the beginning of October, but it can also do well from December into February. There is an interest rate increase possibility for December in the US. If they do, it hurts gold. Has seen gold perform poorly in December until the end of December because of the tendency for the Fed to raise rates at the end of the year. Wait until the end of December before actually adding, and then let it run into Jan/Feb.

Had liked this in the past. At this point, it is probably a good idea. Back in their heyday of 2010-2011, they were earning a 17% return, which then plummeted all the way down to zero, and has now nudged its way back up to 5%. On a relative gold to gold basis, you have an improving return with a decent valuation. This is pretty good.

Gold stocks in general have a very strong period of seasonal strength, normally from the end of July through until the beginning of October. It started out positive this year, but lately has been going sideways to down. The problem is that we are running out of the period of seasonal strength, about 2 weeks from now. Continue holding the stock with the possibility that it might get to the top of its trading range, and you may want to take money off the table in the next 2 weeks.

Gold has a lot to do with the presidential election. Gold does very well when there is a spike in volatility. In the last 3 weeks, we have seen the VIX Index go from about 14% to over 22%. When you see the VIX going higher, that’s when you want to be in gold and gold stocks. This stock has established a downward trend. Wait for the stock to start to bottom at support of around $3.67. Seasonally the best time to be in gold is in the summer.

This has broken out of a long-term decline this year and is doing very well. He likes gold, because of negative interest rates. Gold is the only currency without a central bank. The trend on this is definitely up, but it is a very, very volatile stock, so adjust your position size accordingly. Maybe have a stop-loss. Around $2.30 should be a very strong support, and has potential of going to maybe $5-$6.

You own this for growth. Production is roughly 500,000 ounces now. They have a key asset that they are developing in Maui, which will take production over 800,000 ounces a year. This is trading at about 7-8 times cash flow, the low end of the West African range. There are names where you can find more near term prospects for cash flow growth. Also, on a Price to NAV, it is trading at 1.7X, which is above the 1.5 average. Probably ahead of itself.
