I start with a look at Boohoo (BOO) shares in which a falling on back of reports in a paper founded on profits from the slave trade that suppliers in Leicester are using slave labour. Then I ask if Luke Johnson or I am more sociable and what this means about folks stopping working from home. Then onto gold stocks in general, Hummingbird (HUM), Kefi (KEFI), Red Rock Resources (RRR) and Ariana (AAU). I look at Amigo (AMGO) , Attis Oil (AOGL) and finally why today’s shocking Versarien (VRS) expose really could indicate a major scandal. Footnote:

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: This Avacta valuation is bonkers & when to sell gold

I start with me reporting myself to the FCA as supporters of fraud and or corporate lying act like clowns once again. I discuss quite how scandalous it is that Legoland owner Merlin should get a cent of taxpayer cash. Then it is onto Avacta (AVCT) and gold stocks. Should we be banking gains? On the former I suggest yes on the latter I think not but offer a few notes of caution. Today is a day when I really start recording videos and podcasts for the ShareProphets Shares conference. I have just done a stormer with James Delingpole. It is now just two weeks away so book your seat now HERE.

In a bearcast earlier this week I mentioned how the legendary gold stock picker Malcolm Burne was buying some Aussie miners as a currency and gold play and folks asked “but which ones?” So I asked Malcolm who said:

Video: Gold & Gold Stocks are moving closer to a bull market

The only technical analyst we rate, Jordan Roy Byrne explains why he is getting ever more excited about gold and gold stocks. His thesis:

The stock market is extremely oversold and should rally for a few months, which could coincide with a pullback in precious metals. When the market anticipates the first rate cut, the bull run in Gold will begin in earnest. This is all explianed in the latest video from Palisade Capital.

Video: Gold Stocks look very cheap but there are so many reasons why they have been total dogs

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.

2018 Likely to Set Off Large Gold Rally

Technical Analyst Jordan Roy-Byrne's latest research unearths some interesting similarities with gold stocks compared to historical three-year bear markets. He found three that compare well; they are the S&P 500 during the great depression, the housing market during the global financial crisis, and Thailand in the mid-1990’s which had a huge bust. He describes how all of the recoveries afterward seem to follow a specific pattern and he sees that behavior in gold stocks. Those patterns ended after 14-24 months with prices moving upwards by 133% to 200%.

Simple Charts Showing Why Gold Stocks Are Poised To Blast Off

Okay, broker Palisade Capital focuses on resource plays so it is talking its own book. With that caveat, a short note it put out the other day caught my eye. It wrote: When gold began to rally in late 2015, investors breathed a sigh of relief. The longest resource bear market was finally over, and capital slowly began finding its way back into the mining sector.

Major Autumn Rally Coming in Gold & Gold Stocks

We are seeing pretty classic gold action. Gold stocks are normally more volatile when compared to the regular markets. The U.S. system is currently very dysfunctional, nothing seems to get done, just like it was under Obama. Overall this will affect the psychology with the dollar. The Canadian dollar and gold charts look very similar since these are tied to natural resources. The Canadian dollar improvements in recent weeks have caused Canadian mining stocks to move up in US Dollar terms. We still need some sort of catalyst, an external event, some small drop in the markets to get things started. People are going to be surprised how quickly gold heads for the all-time high.

Ali Zamani: Former Goldman Sachs Manager Says Gold And Gold Stocks Are Best Investment

In this week's podcast from Palisade, Ali discusses how people compare the current financial situation to those of the past, however the big picture is usually different, as the underlying economic circumstances have changed. The US has real competitors unlike the 1950’s and the demographics are radically shifting. The US deficit will continue to grow in part due to baby boomer retirements, their pensions and health care.

Rick Rule: Gold- “Don’t Try To Catch A Falling Safe!”

Post Fed meeting, the freefall in gold and gold stocks continues. It’s a perverse characteristic of investing that the narrative gets better as the market gets worse. Rick Rule believes that a 35-40% decline in gold stocks makes them 35-40% more attractive. The legendary boss at Sprott explains why in a special video with Palisade Capital.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: talking to baby Joshua and watching a film about submarines

The Mrs was off getting her hair down ahead of a Christmas Party, the Cloudtag (CTAG) morons were harassing innocent folks to get at me and I was watching a film about submarines with baby Joshua. What a day of domestic bliss. Meanwhile I look at gold stocks and Avocet Mining (AVM) in particular. Then at Mosman Oil & Gas where the City's top oil analyst Zac "the Knife" Phillips needs fisking, Milestone Group (MSG), Avanti (AVN) and Strat Aero (AERO)

Too Much Money, Not Enough Gold - gold should be at $3,770 oz!

Get ready for an Autumn surge in Gold Stocks

We are seeing a few weeks of rest in the junior mining space, and many are predicting a massive rally this fall. Markets move up when there are more buyers than sellers, and down when the opposite occurs. Both the metals, and mining equities markets are extremely well bid. If there is a break in the market it’s likely to be on the upside, not the downside. That is the key message from Rick Rule of Sprott in this week's podcast from Palisade Capital

Hang Your Hat on Small Cap Private Placements In Gold Stocks

It often takes one year of gains for the typical investor to get interested in something in the stock market, which is where we are approaching with gold right now claims gold guru Mike Swanson. Investing in the first year of this bull market is a great strategy. The bull market for precious metals and mining stocks will likely last 3-5 years so Mike reckons you should be 20% invested in gold stocks and thinks this might be the biggest bull market we will see in our lifetime.

Fireworks Erupting in the Junior Gold stocks

In gold bull cycles, the junior mining companies represent the highest possible returns, especially for investors positioned early in a cycle. Commentator David Skarica believes that the next 6 to 12 months is a great time to position yourself. Historically, moves in the junior miner move between 3-5 years, and we are only 6 months into the current move! If you enter these cheap stocks right now, and invest in 20 or 30 companies, 5 or 6 of them will probably blast off, providing exceptional returns.

No Major Pullbacks In Sight for Gold Stocks Until 2017

Oh Goodie Goodie I hope Amanda van Dyke's colleague Jordan Roy Byrne is correct as we own a stack of gold shares. He argues that: Gold performed well last week but there is resistance at the $1300 mark. There are many factors in play causing volatility in the gold price but this has not effected the stocks which have performed well without any significant corrections.

Gold & Gold Stocks Bullish Consolidation

Amara Mining – we are well ahead on share tip but there’s more to come – Yaoure news

Steve and I have avoided tipping gold stocks on our Nifty Fifty website but we made an exception for Amara Mining (AMA) suggesting readers pile in at a 15.75p offer. The shares are now 23p and there was cracking news a couple of days ago. This stock is starting to hum.

Amara Mining announced further drilling results from its Yaoure gold project in Côte d'Ivoire which “include exceptional intercepts, demonstrating high grade areas within the Yaoure Central Zone and the presence of mineralisation in ‘information gaps’” and “continue to confirm the high grade nature and continuity of the CMA zone”. These are expected to expand the mineral resource and reduce the strip ratio.

Video Postcard Number 17

I hope the sound and light work here. It was filmed in my father’s conservatory in Warwickshire – not exactly an ideal studio but then is not the BBC. That has to be a point in my favour. The video is about eleven and a half minutes long.

On the Agenda

1.Oil stocks – the reasons for selective bearishness

- funding issues, how the recent stream of drill failures have had a disproportionate impact on the ability to raise capital in this sector

Shanta Gold – Low Risk Very Cheap Gold Play

I first tipped AIM listed gold explorer and producer Shanta Gold (SHG) at 21.5p in July 2011 on the site I ran for 12 years until this September – In my most recent performance stats (august 31st) it is in there at 20.5p but the shares are today trading at 29.25p and are still, very cheap. The Tanzanian based company is valued at £93 million, has cash and is now producing gold and material cashflows from its lead asset at Luika. I reckon that the stock is hugely undervalued. It really is a Red Hot Penny Share!

So what does Shanta own and what is it really worth?

Ortac Resources - No obvious insider dealing so bid spec in Telegraph wrong

The Daily Telegraph reports that shares in AIM listed gold exploration company Ortac Resources (OTC) rose yesterday on the back of bid speculation. Yeah right. A story pumped to a daft journalist by someone looking to make a turn or just a way to fill up a line. If there was real bid speculation or activity the stock would have risen by a heck of a lot than 0.03p. Oooh are you saying that there is insider dealing in London? Er yes.
