Mark Lackey: What Happens to a Mine Deferred?
The Mining Report: Mark, the price of copper recently dipped to its lowest level since 2010. Are we going to end the year below $3/pound ($3/lb)? ML: We don't think so. We believe that the price of copper will actually recover as we progress through the year. In fact, we actually are still calling for the price of copper to trade in the $3.60?3.70/lb range by year-end. We really haven't changed our view because if we look at supply and demand conditions, we think there's definitely been an over

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

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. Osisko shares promptly shot up on the news to its current price of $7.62, giving it a fully dilu

  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

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

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.

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

What the Loss of Crimea Means for Ukrainian Energy: Robert Bensh

Russia Looks East as Relations with Europe Deteriorate
The standoff between the U.S. and the EU on one hand, and Russia on the other, intensified pretty quickly late last week. The U.S. quickly slapped heavier sanctions on Russia after its annexation of Crimea, leading to a mutual escalation of retaliatory measures. However, it appears that the West gained a bit of leverage at the moment, as the Russian economy has shown some cracks amid uncertainty over how bad this is going to get.

Main Principle Guiding your Investment in Mining Companies
As the gold and silver markets turn the corner and move back to the uptrend, mining companies are recovering quite nicely. Ahead of the ?credit crunch? in 2007, the common belief was that almost any mine was a good investment. Since then, many investors have learned a salutary lesson on the subject often seeing his investment fall to a level far below the price he paid. Each investor has his favourite gold shares and may continue to believe his chosen vehicle will reward him the most. Neverthele

There is uncertainty in the market about the strength of the U.S. economy. A number of economic indicators reported during the last two months have not met forecasts. The rebound may be slower than expected. Buyers are coming back to bullion. Unrest in the Ukraine is also helping to support the gold pri

The Ty Cobb Approach to Retirement Investing
When baseball fans talk about players from the early 1900s, Babe Ruth is normally the first person mentioned. He was a great home-run hitter with 714 career home runs, a record that stood for almost 40 years. Only two men have surpassed it. Ruth struck out 1,330 times—a record that also stood for several decades. Most people think of Ty Cobb as a gritty player who held the career stolen-base record for many years. But let’s look a bit deeper. Ty Cobb broke into major-league baseball in 1905 at
