Investors the world over are constantly evaluating the leverage, risk and potential rewards of their investment decisions. Whether you are an individual investor or an analyst for a large mutual fund, leverage, risk and the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow are always factors to be considered.
We realize investors are currently concerned about whether the Sell in May and go away factor will occur again this year. Sure feels different this time, doesnt it? We will leave this subject to others and of course the markets will be telling us soon as May is upon us. For us, as we continue to find values in the markets we add them to our portfolio and/or increase current positions. Our view is that we are building inventory, an inventory of shares and warrants to be sold at some point in the future. Will there be corrections along the way? Sure, but we will take the opportunities that the markets give us and do not believe in chasing anything.
Back to Basics:
With few exceptions, most of us writing and those reading the articles on these gold oriented websites are bullish on the precious metals, right? So, lets look at a few very simple ideas on the use of leverage and risk. Id like to first say, we do not personally use nor do we suggest that an investor use margin accounts. The markets can be quite volatile at times and we do not wish to be thrown off of this bull market by a margin call.
If an investors basic beliefs are that gold will say, double from current levels for a 100% gain, are there other ways to invest other than an outright purchase of gold bullion? Sure, gold coins and the gold ETF must mimic the price of gold.
But what if we wanted to utilize some leverage in an attempt to increase our investment gains? Below is a list of investment alternatives of which each takes on additional level of risk and leverage to the price of gold.
Gold Shares — Producers
Gold Shares — Junior Mining companies
Gold Shares — Exploration companies
Investors interested in the precious metals but yet seeking greater safety will stick with the large producing mining companies. At the opposite end of the spectrum will be those investors looking to make a killing by investing in the shares of the exploration companies of which we seem to have an endless supply.
It is commonly known, that gold shares over time will outperform the increase in the price of gold, so investors as a general rule, are looking to own gold shares as their investment of choice. Each investor depending on their level of risk tolerance and their individual beliefs in the strength of this bull market must factor this into their investment philosophy.
Warrants & Leaps:
Investors looking for even more leverage may wish to consider the use long-term warrants and even Leaps in their investment decisions. If one or more of your favorite mining shares has Leaps or long-term warrants trading, why should you not consider them? There is absolutely no reason not to consider them.
