PDAC is the Prospector and Developers Association of Canada and they held their annual show in Toronto over three days, March 6-9. I didn’t attend, but reports show that the event was surreal. Over 27000 people attended this trade show. When gold was trading for $260 dollars back around the turn of the century the attendance was fewer than 2000. Nobody cared about natural resource stocks back then! This should tell you something.

  • Gold and Silver Red Hot: Is 2011 PDAC Conference One Indicator of Near Term Top?PDAC is the Prospector and Developers Association of Canada and they held theirannual show in Toronto over three days, March 6-9. I didn’t attend, but reports showthat the event was surreal. Over 27000 people attended this trade show. When goldwas trading for $260 dollars back around the turn of the century the attendance wasfewer than 2000. Nobody cared about natural resource stocks back then! This shouldtell you something.If hoards of people are interested in buying an asset, the price of that asset will behigher than if nobody is interested in buying the product. Basic supply and demand:more buyers than sellers make the price go up. This absolutely applies to gold miningstocks. In fact, it relates to gold and gold mining stocks very vividly.Gold mining stocks, especially the tiny exploration companies have very small marketcapitalizations and are thinly traded. This means that very few shares trade on anaverage daily basis and the price to buy all of the stock in a given exploration companymight be very low compared to other assets. The reason these exploration companiesare cheap by comparison is most of them have nothing!These little companies are often nothing more than a few men who have convincedsome other men to give them money so that they can spend it at a very fast rate. I likewhat Mark Twain said, “A gold mine is a hole in the ground with a liar standing next toit.” Most of the companies at the PDAC conference have nothing but a piece of nearworthless bush land and hope. This is very dangerous for your investment dollar.These ‘penny stocks’ may seem cheap compared to other industries, but the reason is,they have nothing. If you buy 10000 shares at 50 cents in any one of the hundreds ofworthless companies, such as what the serially successful natural resource investorRick Rule of Global Resource Investments Ltd. calls, Amalgamated Moose PastureMining, you could easily see your investment drop by over 75% when the hype diesdown.Sure, penny stocks can make some smart investors, like Rule, 10 times their moneyover and over, but good companies are as rare as needles in a haystacks and thepeople who can identify them, are even rarer.When the attendance of a mining show like PDAC rises by more than 10 times inaround 10 years and the gold and silver price is white hot, it may be an indicator thatmany of these shares are at least due for a correction; meaning, they have risen too fartoo fast and will likely fall to a level that is well supported by the market.
  • Personally, if silver fell to $18 an ounce on a spike, I wouldn’t be that surprised. Theprice per once has more than doubled in less than a year! I do think that long term,silver is going much much higher, so I am holding onto a core position, but I recentlytook profits in many junior silver mining shares and even sold some 5 oz silver bars,which were ‘less liquid’ than my personal favourite, the Canadian Silver Maple, 1 ouncebullion coin. I will be buying these as the price falls.If silver falls to around $33 an ounce, I’ll buy a bit, $29 I’ll buy even more, $25 an ouncemore still….if it gets to $20 or less, I’ll throw all I’ve got at the white metal! Silver seemsto be very well supported at around $18 per ounce, since it traded around this level formany months.I could be completely wrong and silver and gold could continue on to more new highs.For the record, I think that volatility is very low and has been for a long time now. TheVIX is an index which tracks volatility. It’s complex but basically when the NYSE drops,the VIX goes up. If we see increased volatility and investors and traders run to ‘cash’ wecould see the U.S. dollar rally. Junior mining shares, silver and other hot commoditiesand asset classes could get killed.When the smoke clears, you’ll be able to buy these shares at much lower prices.Some of you may be saying, “this guy’s nuts, a new war in North Africa, Japan in ruins,civil unrest and political instability around the world, how could gold not continue on to$5000 an ounce?” Gold is different than silver. Gold is money. Look at the charts.Gold’s ascent has been sustainable. Silver’s is euphoric! Nothing goes up in a straightline. The slightest ‘positive’ news spin could take a lot of traders out of the gold market.What would happen to silver?The term “sell in May and go away” exists for a reason. There may be many smartinvestors and speculators looking to lighten up on various hot asset classes in thecoming months. Keep it in mind, when you look at your portfolio.Physical gold is insurance against money-printing-governments and it always has been.This doesn’t mean you won’t get a better price in the months to come. Wait and see ifPDAC is an indication of a short term top in natural resource stocks!
