Ukraine Falling to Economic Warfare and Its Own Missteps
As protests in Ukraine's eastern region turned violent on Sunday leading to the death of a Ukrainian security officer in a shootout with pro-Russian militia, Kiev threatens military action while Moscow flexes its geo-economic warfare muscles. Pro-Russian militia groups have seized government buildings and police headquarters in Ukraine's eastern city of Donetsk and Slovyanks--where the shoot-out took place--and despite a Monday morning ultimatum by the Ukrainian government, these gro

Osisko vs. Goldcorp: An Industry ‘David and Goliath’
Osisko Mining Corp. (TSX:OSK) founder Sean Roosen is keeping mum about the hostile takeover of the company he started over a decade ago by Goldcorp (TSX:G) (NYSE:GG). Today Goldcorp sweetened the offer to $2.92 in cash plus 0.17 of a Goldcorp common share. At the time of this writing, that adds $4.57 for total consideration of $7.49 per Osisko share, for a total cash consideration of CA$3.63 billion.

Hang On, Folks ! It's Going to Be a Bumpy Ride: 2014 Biotech Watchlist Update
The biotech news at the end of March was grim. "Are Biotech Stocks Popping a Bubble?" read a Bloomberg News headline that was typical. The story explored whether the recent reversal in biotech indices was a harbinger of the end of the bull run. It's been a roller coaster ride since the tumble, with stock charts across the board still trending downward. The 12 stocks in The Life Sciences Report's Biotech Watchlist portfolio have not been immune. The 2014 portfolio has been in negative territory

Are You Prepared for a Bull Market that Will Shock Even the Most Ardent Goldbugs?
The Gold Report: Janet Yellen's about-face on quantitative easing (QE) makes two panicked pullbacks so far by the Federal Reserve from the end of QE. Is it fair to say we now have QE forever? Jay Taylor: I don't know about forever because nothing lasts forever. Your premise is largely correct, however, because the discontinuation of quantitative easing would be so painful it's a pretty good assumption that it will continue for a long time to come. It will probably end only when the system bre

  Canada Fluorspar, Colossus Minerals: Proof Positive that U.S. Quantitative Easing is Undermining Can 
While the media tone of coverage of Canada Fluorspar’s (TSX.V:CFI) buyout by Golden Gate Capital of San Francisco for a measly $38.8 million is decidedly congratulatory, the deal is better considered in the light of the loss of yet another would-be major contributor to future Canadian GDP, thanks in no small part to the oblivious Canadian Government. While America prints what amounts to subsidies for equity investors in U.S. markets, that incentive entices capital from around the world away from

Profiting from History: These Pioneers Turn Crisis ...
“So what other companies do you like?” I asked a fellow analyst on a mine tour. He didn’t hesitate. He named an emerging producer and said it was his top gold stock pick. It had his highest rating. That caught my attention, but what made me really perk up was the gleam in his eye when describing the company and the people behind it. He was really passionate about this one. The interesting thing was that I was actually quite familiar with the company. My colleague Louis James and I had both

Ted Dixon: What Gold Stock Insider Trading Tells Us
The Gold Report: The price of gold fell more than 6% in March. To what do you attribute this? Ted Dixon: Gold took a one-two punch in late March. The first was the widening of the renminbi trading ban in China by 2%, which added extra costs to buying and hedging gold. The second was the surprisingly hawkish tilt of the U.S. Federal Reserve, pointing to interest rates rising a little bit sooner. Tighter monetary conditions do not usually benefit gold.

The Most Profitable Gas in the World
There is only one certainty in Ukraine: The energy sector must and will be transformed, and how long this takes will depend on who ends up in the driver's seat and how serious they are about becoming a part of Europe and reducing dependence on Russia. But by then, investors will have missed the boat. The driving factor for any energy investor in Ukraine is the pricing environment.

Methane is a powerful greenhouse gas, about 20 times more potent than carbon dioxide. The federal government will target four key areas of methane emissions - landfills, coal mines, agriculture, and the oil and gas industry. The fact sheet indicates t

That is fed by balance-sheet expansion in many Western countries and foreign exchange reserves, typically the result of trade deficits built up in countries such as China.
