Johnson Matthey (JMAT) has seen its share price take a bit of a hit in recent months and is now trading at a similar level to where it started the year, despite the world economy looking in better shape now than it did then.
The recent share price movement on Eurasia Mining (EUA) looks even more dodgy now in light of today’s announcement of a placing, and I would be surprised if there hasn’t been some forward selling going on.
Corpoerate financier Jim Paterson states that precious metals have become even more precious due to the massive amount of money printing. The inflation we are going to suffer in the coming years is a direct result.
Private investors are often looking to buy into companies where the share price has fallen, rather than those which are near all time highs, but in some cases that is the opposite of what they should be doing!
I often see people saying that you can’t actually invest inshares in AIM miners and the only way to play them is by trading the swings they have along the way.
Trader Francis Hunt “The Market Sniper” says that gold is acting as the bellwether for the collapsing global economy. Gold and silver will soon be unleashed, not unlike the recent major moves in palladium and rhodium. He says that a lot is happening behind the scenes that will affect precious metals, and he looks closely at the macro picture surrounding the markets and bonds.
Analyst David H. Smith has a prediction to delight we loyal shareholders in Jubilee Metals (JLP). Nope, not Colin Bird’s resignation but almost as good is his view on the relationship between platinum and palladium and why the prices between them are currently inverted. Platinum being quite rare, it is usually more expensive than both gold and palladium. This trend seems to be in the process, he argues, of returning to normal. Good news.
Ross Norman of Metals Daily is an industry veteran and knows his onions. His 2021 precious metals forecasts will surprise gold bugs such as our in-house loon Nigel Somerville, with their caution. Over to the great man who predicts:
We tipped Jubilee Metals (JLP) at a 4.6p offer in July 2020. Ding Dong! As we approach Christmas the shares are circa 11p, making we loyal investors pretty happy. But do not even think of selling. Here’s why:
Palldium! That's the asset class that you should have invested in last year. Sorry, we almost renamed ourselves PalladiumProphets but then we got distracted and keep on harassing bad guys. But this chart of 11 asset classes over the past ten years is faciinating.
Often pump and dumps only last a matter of a few days or even hours, but occasionally when it is more than just small private investors involved they can go on for a long period of time, and that certainly appears to have been the case with Eurasia Mining (EUA)...
Analyst David Wilson thinks gold is going to continue to run.
Eurasia Mining (EUA) is a company that I’ve been following for the past five years or so, but during that time, other than the occasional spike, the share price has done very little, and up until a few days ago you could have bought for around the same price as when I first covered it. The share price has more than tripled in the last few days though, to a current level of around 1.9p, following news that the company has engaged two large banks to help it assess the possibility of selling its assets and basically becoming a cash shell under AIM Rule 15...
Hello Share Lovers. If you’re rich, your card case will be made from silver. If you’re super rich, like the villain in my latest horror novel, Black Snow, then it will be fashioned in platinum. How’s that for a crafty plug? Platinum is worth more than gold. And like gold, which is currently shy of its deserved value, there looks some catching up to be done regarding its price.
Fund manager Matt Geiger thinks we were in a consolidation period of this precious metals bull market for the past year. He doesn’t see much downside from here. It’s been a relatively healthy period for investors to get into the market. In terms of the gold price we are more likely to reach $1400 than to see $1200 again, he argues.
As long as there is nothing fundamentally wrong with the company itself, then with any leveraged play on commodity prices, which is basically what many producers are, the time to be buying is when the price of the underlying commodity is near the bottom of a cycle. It is usually hard to judge exactly where the bottom is going to be but, when it comes to platinum, I think we are nearing that area.
Lonmin (LMI) is a company that I have followed closely for several years, but after the latest updates this week, and with platinum still looking weak, I wouldn’t be in any rush to buy.
I’ve been a fan of Sylvania Platinum (SLP) for some time now and it is a company in which I hold shares myself, and after the latest update I see no reason to change that stance.
One western entrepreneur for whom there are compensations in Russian President Vladimir Putin’s forward policy in Ukraine is Robin Young, chief executive officer of AIM-quoted nickel play Amur Minerals (AMC). His company is expected shortly to produce significantly increased reserve figures for its Kun Manie project in Far East Russia, near the Chinese border. Political uncertainties and investors’ impatience have contributed to the fall in Amur’s shares. At 2.98p these are well off their 12-month high of 8.5p and a mortifying 90 per cent down from their 2006 float price of 33p, but the fall in the Russian rouble prompted by the Ukraine crisis has at least cut the estimated cost of securing a long-awaited production licence from $818,000 (£481,000) to $655,000.
