Market. As far as the macro things go, earnings are sort of done, there is no catalyst, the US election is coming up and the market is just waiting. There have been the cross currents with BREXIT. The defensive part of the market including Internet senses has sort of fallen, but has started to pick back up in the last little while.

Energy. Thinks energy is range bound between $40 and $50 for the next 18-24 months. He is near term bearish, because there is a surplus. Globally it is estimated that it takes about $60 a barrel for the industry to break even, including cost of capital. Right now they make the stuff for $60 and sell it for $40 and lose $20 a barrel, and try to make it up on volume. If you look 2-3 years out, the supply destruction that will take place in the marketplace will push prices substantially higher. Thinks Canada is in relatively good condition. Canadian producers did a better job than the Mexicans and Venezuelans of making sustaining capital investments over the last 10-15 years, and have done a very good job in the application of technology. He is near term bearish, but longer-term bullish. $65-$70 would be easy to see in 3 years.

Gold in Colombia? The troubles are really not over in Colombia, only officially. Rural Colombia will continue to be a tough place sociologically. If you can stomach the risk, the exploration prospectivity is spectacular. There are a number of Canadian Juniors exploring, and it is a wonderful place to look.

Lithium? The lithium equities market seemed to do pretty well for reasons that are completely foreign to him. The lithium battery contains about 3% lithium, and is actually a nickel battery. The world’s 4 big lithium producers have about 100 years in reserves in place. The world is substantially oversupplied with lithium.

Platinum and palladium? He is very attracted to these markets. They are precious metals, but precious metals that have industrial uses. The trade-off going forward in platinum and palladium is that we make it worldwide at below the cost of production, and they are essential to the air that we breathe. Thinks the price has to go up and that it will go up.

ABX-T
Rick Rule

Feels the very large gold companies will do well for the balance of this year. This one will benefit because of an expansion of margin. It looks like they have sold some of their problems. Also, the Canadian generalist institutions are underweight gold, and he thinks they will have to buy this for the balance of the year.

2016-09-28 BUY AGT Food & Ingredients
AGT-T
Hap (Robert) Sneddon FCSI

This is a name he likes. Chart shows that there was a little bit of a break out, but is now coming back to test at around $36.70. The space is really good long-term. Long-term chart shows a great upward trend. You could take an initial position now with a Stop just below the current price. If it got above $40, it would be something you would probably add to.

AXY-T
Rick Rule

Big geothermic producers in Iceland. The company has disappointed investors because it is in the alternative energy space, which takes a very long time. People look at the historic lack of cash generation, not understanding that the company has generated the cash to pay down $200 million in debt over 7 years. Their free cash flow really begins to come next year, and the stock will re-rate. Dividend yield of 0.76%.

BBT-N
Hap (Robert) Sneddon FCSI

Had a high of around $42 in 2014, and got to as low as $30 early this year. It is now bounced back up to around $38. Looks like it is now starting to roll over. If it breaks below $36, it is probably going to go a little bit lower to the $32-$34 range. He would look to buy this on weakness, or a break out above $42.

2016-09-28 PARTIAL SELL Ballard Power Systems
BLD-T
Hap (Robert) Sneddon FCSI

The chart shows a pretty nice return from July to now, with a nice base being built from early 2015. It is going to find resistance at around $4. This name is going to be really impacted by announcements/news. If you own and have a gain, he would consider taking half your gain off the table. Then if it got above $4 with momentum, then maybe you buy some more.

BNP-T
Hap (Robert) Sneddon FCSI

This had a peak in early September, but has come back down. The whole space has a seasonality to it. It tends to get strong in the summer and then weakens into November and then picks up again. If you want to own an energy name, you could start to nibble away next month until you get the full position you are looking at. Perhaps in 3 portions.

BTO-T
Rick Rule

The company has implemented extremely well. The risk is the Filipino political risk. His suspicion is that the risk is overwrought. He sees them bringing in a new mine in Africa which he likes an awful lot as well as the implementation skills. Feels that the gold equities market is a little overextended in the short term. If you own, he would recommend using trailing stops. He really likes this intermediate and long-term.

An excellent executor of the business model. Sold his holdings mid-summer. This has a seasonality, and the whole space has some pretty big weakness in August. He would probably look to buy this back in November. If you can get it at around $135, you are probably getting a pretty good price.

FNV-T
Hap (Robert) Sneddon FCSI

Gold is really a hedge against currency volatility more than inflation. Gold long-term, is a pretty good hold, and the best place to be is in the producers. The stock is falling back to test the September low. If this was breaking down below $87, he would have a bit more concern. You’ll have to live with volatility for a while.

A high quality team and a high quality place. They have an interesting discovery in very attractive real estate. However, it has a very large market capitalization. If you own, he would suggest that you begin to hedge your gains by using a trailing stop, and move it up if the stock continues to move higher. An expensive stock.

Feels this is a good Buy if you have a 3-year timeframe. The base metals market is going to take a long time to recover, and as a consequence there is very low demand for anything worldwide. He would recommend you look at the companies “7 investment grade debt” (?). You can buy that bond at a substantial discount to par and get a pretty good yield.
