The View From The Montana Log-Cabin As Gold Continues To Struggle And Cash From Ariana Arrives Tomorrow

Gold closed the week at $1661 per oz – up from last week’s $1645, but still below the apparently all-important $1675 mark. It is all a bit depressing, but with incoming cash from the latest AIM-listed Ariana (AAU) dividend of 0.175p per share due tomorrow, the Gold price in Sterling terms within £100 of its all-time high and equity markets in another bear-run, its not so bad.

Pure Gold – Pure Bullsh*t As Fat lady Warms Up In The Wings

Pure Gold, of the TSX-V (PGM) and LSE (PUR) has served up a technical report with updated mineral resource which sounds great until you remember that Pure Gold is in the middle of a strategic review and heading for the corporate knackers’ yard without a miracle. And this technical report with updated mineral resource is just pure bullsh*t in my view, aimed at ramping the shares to get another bailout placing away.

The View From The Montana Log-Cabin As Gold Follows Sterling Downwards

Gold closed the week at a sickly looking $1645, down from last week’s $1676. There was to be no bounce at around $1675. But in a week when the Fed again raised interest rates by 0.75% - the third such hike in succession – you could be forgiven for wondering why Gold has not headed even lower. Inflation remains on the rampage in the US, and until that reverses the Fed is likely to continue hiking…..or until something in the economy breaks, as it continues to gaze into the rear view mirror. Over here, however, the big news was the crunching of sterling in the face of Friday’s non-budget budget. Whilst Gold has been struggling against the US dollar, it raced towards of its year high against sterling and is now just £57 off the all-time high as markets took fright at Truss-onomics.

SUPP A Buy? No Way! More Trouble At T’Mill As The Curse Of Neil Woodford Continues

Last week saw the extraordinary admission from Schroder UK Public Private Trust (SUPP) – formerly Woodford Patient Capital Trust (WCPT) – that it had messed up its NAV statements every day since late April. And we learnt that Link Group faces a further £50 million fine, to add to the £306 million redress plan for its handling of the Woodford funds. What a shambles.

The View From The Montana Log-Cabin As Gold Heads Lower Again

Gold closed the week at $1676, down from last week’s $1717. I had hoped that we might have seen the end of this particular bear by now, but on the back of still uncomfortable US inflation figures, as US Government Bond yields headed higher in expectation of more rate-rises, Gold headed south. The one glimmer of hope is that Gold closed the week almost bang on the recent lows right on Jordan Roy-Byrne’s line in the sand at $1675. Will it bounce from here?

Pure Gold – Pure Ramping!

Pure Gold, of the TSX-V (PGM) and the LSE (PUR), updated the market with news that it has achieved record Gold production in August and reaffirmed Q3 guidance, driven (we are told) by record ore throughput and improved grades. The shares are up on the news by 12.6% to 7.6p (still a country mile below the 10.25p at which I said, last April, that it was certainly not one for me – and I am supposed to be a Gold bull!) but there is a massive fly in the ointment.

Schroder UK Public Private Trust (ex-Woodford WPCT) – Huge Discount To NAV: Is It A Buy?

From a long-standing Woodford bear, it may seem an odd question as to whether Schroder UK Public Private Trust (SUPP) might now be a buy. But with the latest published NAV standing at 36.04p as of last night, and the shares trading at a mammoth 52% discount at just 17.26p, it is a question that I have to ask myself.
