Author Adrian Day starts by discussing the lag in economic consequences as a result of rate hikes and changes in monetary policy. Adrian notes that the impacts vary depending on market sector, and that the overall economic effect has yet to be felt.
Gold Guru Adrian Day notes that only two gold stocks have outperformed gold itself in recent years. This underperformance is one of the reasons why many investors are not particularly interested in the sector. There are many inherent problems in mining, and poor management decisions exacerbate this.
Adrian Day admits that picking winners in the gold sector is not easy. A lot of people do not understand the inherent complexities in this industry such as high capital costs, low odds of success in exploration, and fixed assets that can be taxed or confiscated. When you look at the gold market not only is gold cheap but gold stocks are cheap even in comparison to gold. This, the gold guru argues, is the most significant opportunity in thirty years to buy gold stocks.
Adrian Day is, like me, an Austrian when it comes to economics and that is why, in this period of monetary lunacy and fiscal recklessness, gold has such an attraction for him. He is very bullish indeed. He argues that this year we've seen gold swing up and down several times, each time we have gone higher and had higher lows. This is a bullish pattern. It’s extremely encouraging that gold has held up well above 1300. Central banks are going to be very cautious from here.
Adrian Day, from Adrian Day Asset Management, is a major bull of gold and puts the case well Hence my colleagues at Palisade Capital interviewed him on his controversial but coherent thoughts the other day. His views on mining stocks are equally forthright and entertaining.
