This special report is courtesy of TheStockAdvisors.com . “Our top stock pick for 2011 is a very speculative play, based on our conviction that at some point during the year, gold bullion will experience a strong run-up in price, perhaps reminiscent to the peak that occurred in January 1980,” says Alan Newman .

Weekend: Wall of Worry

Weekend: Wall of Worry

Welcome to the Wealth Daily Weekend Edition— our insights from the week in investing and links to our most-read Wealth Daily and sister publication articles. Before the bulls break out the champagne today, I would warn them not to get too far ahead of themselves. After all, euphoria is a dangerous emotion that can lead to big losses — in this market or in any other. What is crystal clear is that our problems are not only ongoing but persistent. Certain cans have been kicked, but they are still in the road. Fundamentally, the picture is as clear as mud, even though the bulls are ready to break out the party hats in 2011, insisting that the markets really will grow to the sky. If only it were so… Advertisement Gold’s “Louisiana Purchase” Not long ago, the world’s largest uranium giant practically gave away billions of dollars worth of gold to one small exploration company… for only $250,000! Before their next set of drill results are posted, find out how this rare opportunity could easily triple your money by September! Click Here For Your Free Report Now! Of course, we know otherwise.I’m firmly in the camp that believes a “new normal” has begun; it springs from economic necessity as the middle class digests a greater new reality. This brave new world will be focused more upon frugality than on frivolity. As unemployment persists, home prices continue to drop, and more wealth evaporates, consumers are more likely to try living within their means, no matter how hard that may be. As a result, without a steady up-tick in jobs or boost in income, a repeat of the consumption-bubble we just lived through simply isn’t going to happen. Nor can it be recreated — despite the fact that the Fed is trying its best to do just that. So, what we’re essentially left with is a classic case of a reluctance to borrow or consume.And that’s a big problem, since that’s what the lion share of the U.S. economy has been based on since 1982… We have too many cars, too many houses, and too many debt holders who can’t support it all. Sure, Ben Bernanke and friends are providing plenty of liquidity; but those mountains of dollars will have very little velocity when a nation of good-time Charlies suddenly decides to live within their means. As I’ve said before, you can lead a horse to water, but you can’t make him drink. That being said, I thought we would play …

Junior Gold Stocks to Shine in 2011

Junior Gold Stocks to Shine in 2011

Last Friday, I urged Wealth Daily subscribers like yourself to buy gold and silver ahead of major buying that needed to take place this week to satisfy contractual COMEX obligations before the end of the trading day today… Gold and silver prices have remained volatile in both directions since October. But indications from the COMEX show suggest we may see a spike in these precious metals prices next week… Contracts for gold and silver December futures that demand physical metal must be met by then. But there appears to be a significant shortfall in the actual physical metal required to meet these demands — especially in silver. If these contractual obligations are not met by the 12/31/10 deadline, then we could see a default scenario, which would drive the metals prices even higher and cause great instability for other markets as well. This is exactly what happened. Advertisement This Play Just Keeps Making Money – 155%… 323%… 900%… ???% A few months ago, I released a special video on a tiny Mongolian oil company. I predicted this little-known company would go absolutely ballistic once drilling results came in. And boy was I right. Early investors had a shot at 900% gains. And the way I see it, we’ll see a repeat very soon. So check out this video on the matter and make sure you’re one of the early birds this time around.  Significant buying of physical gold and silver to meet COMEX futures drove bullion prices much higher this week. Take a look: While the physical bullion market is rising, junior mining shares are starting to get some attention once again. Junior mining stocks are even more speculative— but their risk/reward tradeoff amplifies potential gains even further. And when junior gold stocks are in favor, they can quickly return legendary gains. There’s just one little problem… There are over 1,000 junior mining companies listed on the TSX Venture exchange alone. And it’s very difficult to sort through all the promotions and scams to find solid junior gold stocks. Going through all those companies was a very time-consuming and nerve-racking ordeal… So, if you don’t …

Weekend: 2011 Stock Market Forecast

Weekend: 2011 Stock Market Forecast

Welcome to the Wealth Daily Weekend Edition— our insights from the week in investing and links to our most-read Wealth Daily and sister publication articles. It’s not often that Bloomberg’s headlines give me much pause, but this one sure did. Bullish to the max, it quoted an analyst named Brian Barish from Cambiar Investors who believes the S&P 500 will gain 17% from here. In fact Barish believes the S&P 500 will rise to 1,300 by June 30, and to 1,380 by the end of year based on the weighted average of estimates by Cambiar’s nine analysts. Advertisement The Video Footage that has Electric Companies Terrified They won’t announce it yet, but your utility company is shaking in its boots… That’s because one tiny engineering firm just demonstrated a technology that could put every last utility out of business— by harnessing your own solar energy at any time, from any window ! Before the first big ticket contract comes through — doubling the share price — click here to see exclusive footage. Propelled by energy and industrials, 2011 will be marked by a “multi-speed recovery” that will completely lay waste to the “new normal” thesis put forward by the likes of PIMCO and your humble analyst. Instead, Barish believes, “the bleeding has stopped” as low market multiples will give way to an environment where multiples expand. In short, it’s the classic bullish argument, since the price-to-earnings ratio is now 15— below the 16.4 average for the index going back to 1954. But as every market watcher knows, Barish’s thesis eventually comes to rest where all of them do. In the end, it will always be all about earnings. That’s why we aren’t so eager to help ourselves to all of this bullish Kool-Aid talk of late — especially as Goldman Sachs boosts their outlook to 1450 (!!) for 2011. Now for those of you keeping score at home, Goldman’s latest forecast would put the S&P 500 right back within a whisper of its 2007 highs, going back to the days of the housing bubble peak. How they arrive at that figure, I’ll never know… After all, is there anything that leads you to believe we are going see to the type of real economic activity we witnessed before it all fell apart? A return to the 2007 peaks? I would even argue the two-year peaking cycle — circled in the chart below — was nothing more than an illusion brought on by cheap credit and the bubble atmosphere it created. Without them, in other words, that peak encompassed by the circle never would have happened. In many ways, it really was mirage. Simply put, the market overshot at the top the same way it overshot at the bottom. It was, in the purest sense, a function of our bubble-based economy — similar to the market action after the dot-com bust. Of course, that doesn’t mean another stock market bubble cannot form anew. The FED is actually working overtime…

China’s Gold Production Drops in July

China’s Gold Production Drops in July

Chinese miner holds gold-bearing ore The production of gold in China fell to 31.059 tonnes in July according to the country’s Ministry of Industry and Information Technology. Gold production in China was 2.7% lower than June’s record production of 31.897 tonnes of gold, but was still 17.8% higher than production in July 2009 and the third highest month total ever. Output of gold from China during the half of 2010 totaled 159.240 tonnes, about 10% higher than the same period of last year. Here are China’s gold production figures for the first half of 2010 and July: China has been able to increase the output of gold each year since 2004, producing a total of 313.980 tonnes last year. But skyrocketing Chinese investment demand is quickly outstripping supply. In an effort to help the gold market meet rising demand, the Chinese government recently made further steps toward to the complete liberalization of the gold sector in China. In a recent free Wealth Daily report, I discuss how relaxed regulations on China’s gold industry could have dramatic effects in the fragile world supply/demand balance for gold, which could send gold prices surging higher. I also briefly talk about two junior gold stocks that are hoping to strike it rich with some very prospective gold properties in China.

Yukon Gold Stocks Gain Heavy Media Attention

Yukon Gold Stocks Gain Heavy Media Attention

A few weeks ago, I wrote to you to discuss the investment highlights of companies with gold projects in Canada’s Yukon Territory. I’ve been interested in the area for several years. And when Underworld Resources (Historic: TSX-V: UW) recently made the White Gold discovery, my interest was really piqued. I recently returned from a second trip to the Yukon to visit a few companies and projects that I am considering for recommendation in my Mining Speculator newsletter. And I can tell you first hand that the area is buzzing with excitement. You see, since the initial discovery of gold in the Yukon region over a hundred years ago, approximately 12.5 million ounces of gold have been produced. But the source of this gold has never been found… Until now? Maybe. It’s way too early to tell. But one thing’s for sure: The Yukon’s gold industry is getting more media attention than ever. Just look at some of these recent headlines that I found while searching “Yukon gold” on Google News: Yukon: Modern Day Gold Rush On The Horizon – Resource Investing News, August 13, 2010 Juniors Pour Millions Into Yukon Projects – Mining News , August 29, 2010 Mineral Rush Pushes Yukon Staking Claims to Near-Record Levels – Canadian Business Online , August 17, 2010 TSX Ends Eight-Day Win Streak, But Yukon Gold Rush Continues – The Vancouver Sun , September 7, 2010 Explorers Trek to Mining-Friendly Yukon – Mining News , August 29, 2010 The Yukon Territory is a very prospective gold exploration area that gives investors exposure to new major gold discoveries. Following Underworld Resources’ White Gold discovery, the world’s top geologists believe the Yukon may become the central focus of investment for the exploration, development, and production of gold for decades. I have been advising investors to consider junior gold stocks with projects in Canada’s Yukon Territory. In my recent Wealth Daily report titled The 21st Century Yukon Gold Rush , I talk briefly go through the history of gold in the Yukon, the White Gold discovery, and I tell investors about two Yukon gold stocks that have already yielded quadruple-digit gains.

China’s Gold Demand Increases 26%

China’s Gold Demand Increases 26%

The World Gold Council reported that Chinese gold demand increased 26% in the second quarter amid booming interest in retail investment demand for gold. During the second quarter, 48% of China’s gold demand came from the retail investment market, which increased 25% from the previous year. As a result, the country retained its position as the world’s second-largest consumer of gold as the demand for gold in China from April to June was 112 tonnes. China outperformed all other countries in the world in terms of the growth rate in the retail investment volume for the metal. Wang Lixin , General Manager of the World Gold Council in China In the long-term, gold demand in China is expected to balloon as mounting inflation concerns and a faltering global economic recovery has recently caused an increase in retail investment demand. The government recently released new guidelines to encourage the development of the domestic gold market. This will spur interest for gold as an investment and boost liquidity in China’s domestic gold market. These new regulation also strongly support foreign investment in China’s gold industry. And companies with well-established Chinese gold positions may be well-leveraged to take advantage of sharp increases in domestic demand. In a report report for Wealth Daily , I discuss how the liberalization of China’s gold industry could have drastic effects on the delicate supply/demand balance for gold and send the price of gold skyrocketing higher as millions of new gold investors in China bust into the global gold market. Plus, I discuss two junior gold stocks that are looking to profit with gold projects in China.

The 21st Century Yukon Gold Rush

The 21st Century Yukon Gold Rush

The mining history books will have to be rewritten. Brand-new discoveries of large — and incredibly rich — gold deposits in Canada’s Yukon Territory have sparked the imaginations and excitement of geologists across the globe. And with these impressive discoveries, the Yukon Territory is once again gaining a reputation as one of the world’s hottest gold exploration targets. For investors, this means the opportunity to profit from ground-floor area plays in the rapidly re-emerging Yukon gold district — which geologists are already comparing to the world’s top gold regions. Some of these stocks have already started paying off. In just a second, I’ll tell you about two junior gold stocks that have already yielded quadruple-digit gains after the companies hit pay-dirt in the Yukon’s prolific White Gold district. The Yukon region’s legendary gold history and wealth of remarkable new mineral discoveries are quickly making the territory one of the industry’s most intriguing regions for exploration. Investors are advised to take a close look at quality junior gold exploration companies with assets in Canada’s Yukon Territory.

Click here to learn more Canada’s 21st century Yukon gold rush The gold mining industry has been ingrained in the Yukon culture for over a century. Beginning with the great Klondike Gold Rush in 1896, a total of over 12.5 million ounces of gold have been produced from the Yukon Territory. Yet despite having already produced resources that are worth $15.6 billion today, many geologists still regard the Yukon Territory as ‘virgin country’ in terms of gold exploration and mining. That’s because the full potential of the Yukon Territory is still undetermined. Less than 3% of the Yukon’s known mineral occurrences have been tested with modern gold exploration techniques. Today there are about 80 mineral…

Junior Gold Stocks and the Global Financial Crisis

Junior Gold Stocks and the Global Financial Crisis

Summer market doldrums are leaving investors of junior mining stocks with a tough road to hoe. General pricing and trading volumes are down, and there’s little interest in the junior exploration market— except for special news regarding new discoveries. But this won’t last long… I expect the junior mining stock market to rebound stronger than ever. And I expect to see another monster bull market for gold and silver exploration shares. But before the party starts, we might experience a little pain. And for the next few weeks at least, it might be best to shy away from the whole market and go enjoy the rest of your summer while we wait for signals of a rebound for junior mining stocks. Advertisement Surest Way to Profit from the Natural Gas Surge … Backed by two of the richest men in the world, Forbes just called this play a true “game changer.” Already, it’s paid investors like you over 101% since last August.

Robust physical buying supports gold and silver markets Precious metals remain strong in the big picture with a long-term trend of rising prices. Right now, gold is just under $1,200 while silver is at $18.30 an ounce. If you notice, market dips are not lasting as long as they have in past years. This is due to a robust physical gold and silver buying market, thanks to the recent bout of safe-haven investing. Many large buyers of physical metals have marching orders to buy on any technical dips. (This is why we continue to see gold prices spike back shortly after a dip.) Richard Russell, editor of the Dow Theory Letter , had a great comment last week: Gold bullion continues to lead the gold mining shares, although I wish it was the other way around. Somewhere ahead, gold is going to go parabolic. Safe-haven physical gold buyers will soon be jumping back into the junior exploration market— the investment gains are just too fantastic not to have at least some exposure to the so called “legendary gains” of the junior mining stock market. And when these investors start to come around again, it will …

Ben Plans, Markets Laugh

Welcome to the Wealth Daily Weekend Edition — our insights from the week in investing and links to our most-read Wealth Daily and sister publication articles. I must admit it’s kind of fun to watch pointy-headed intellectuals squirm under the weight of their grandiose schemes. You see, somehow their ideas never seem to work out exactly as they are planned — even though “the smartest guys in the room” have promised they will. Inevitably though, the cleat of reality arrives. They struggle in places they used dominate, and under the glare of the bright lights, their voices suddenly become whispers. It’s as predictable as the sunrise. Men plan; markets laugh. Advertisement What the coal industry doesn’t want you to know can Make you a lot of money! Click here for more. So looking like a bit like a deflated balloon on Wednesday, all Ben Bernanke could come up with was this: The outlook was “unusually uncertain”. Which roughly translates into: It’s so screwed up that your guess is as good as mine . I guess it beat a shrug of the shoulders, but not by much. Not to worry though, Ben continued… He’s warming up Plan P just in case. Moments later, the markets promptly fell off the cliff. Here’s why… Everyone knows that his forecasts of 3%-3.5% GDP growth are unusually optimistic . After all, the formula used to calculate GDP is hard to con. It works like this: GDP = C + I + G + (X-M) In other words, the sum total of our economic activity is arrived at by adding C onsumption (personal and business) to I nvestments, plus G overnment spending, plus exports ( X ) minus imports ( M ). That means that in order substantially to increase the GDP, we will need an increase in some form from C, I, G, and X. Simple enough… Or is it? The first roadblock is the biggest of them all, since C currently accounts for 70% of our GDP. In a society buried under debt…

The World’s Hottest Region for Gold Exploration

The World’s Hottest Region for Gold Exploration

When junior mining companies make a big gold discovery, shareholders often see double- and triple-digit investment gains. Of course, gold is very rare and making a significant discovery isn’t easy. But ask any geologist… The best place to find large deposits of gold is close to where other major deposits have already been discovered. That’s why I’ve recently been looking to invest in a region that many consider one of the best places in the world for gold exploration. Advertisement Breakthroughs Nowhere Near This Big Have Paid Investors Over 10x Gains Our resident biotech expert just came across a tiny company that can make the human immune system 1 000 times more effective against dozens of deadly diseases — including the major cancers: Prostate, lung, breast, cervical, and more… Here’s how their revolutionary “cell-shock” technology could hand you as much as 1000 times your money as it saves tens of millions worldwide. Just 300 miles north of Las Vegas Nevada is one of the largest sources of gold in the world. By itself, the state contributes over 7% of total world gold production, making it the fourth largest producer in the world behind, China, South Africa, and Australia. The majority of Nevada’s vast gold resources is contained in the second largest economic gold anomaly in the world— second only to South Africa — called the Carlin Trend . Ancient geologic forces induced high temperatures and pressure that produced numerous hot springs along an area about 5 miles wide and 40 miles long, known today as the Carlin Trend. These hot springs brought an abundance of dissolved minerals toward the surface; among these minerals was a fortune of gold. In the past two decades alone, over 200 million ounces of gold have been discovered… And over 70 million ounces (worth $84 billion today) were produced from the Carlin Trend. Some of today’s major gold production companies like Barrick Gold (NYSE: ABX ) and Newmont Mining (NYSE: NEM ) directly owe their success to this exceptionally rich belt of gold deposits. Similar gold trends surround the Carlin Trend, where other major multi-billion-dollar gold discoveries have been made: the Battle Mountain-Eureka Trend the Getchell Trend the Independence Group the Alligator Ridge Group In these surrounding trends, world-class multi-million ounce gold deposits…
