Will Silver and Gold ever come back? And how do markets work?

Silver is low, granted.  But it could get a lot lower if the stock market crumbles or there is a US recession.  Also gold priced in Canadian dollars is still at about $1400, granted the Canadian dollar is at 1.39 to 1 US dollar so you have lost purchasing power in other currencies.

The lesson to learn about Silver and Gold is that when there is a bull market that market doesnt usually go through a bull stage till a good while later.  Granted it was 2011 when we peaked in Silver and Gold and its been 4 years but it could be another 1, 2 or 4 years.

The NASDAQ bubble took 14 years after 2000 to get to its high (It got to its high in 2014).

Seritage Growth Properties – Warren Buffett and TheValueSwan.com Approved

Warren Buffett has recently built up a stake of 8% of Seritage Growth Properties (Ticker: SRG).  This is the Sears REIT (Real Estate Investment Trust) that was spun off of Sears Holdings (Ticker: SHLD).  Now I bet your asking yourself, “Why did Warren Buffett buy this REIT?”  The answer is simple.  Seritage has the bulk of Sears’ properties under its belt and it has the ability to kick Sears out of the real estate and re-lease it out for $18 dollars a square foot, while Sears Holdings only pays $5 dollars a square foot.  This makes Seritage an easy play to make.  Right now Seritage Growth Properties shares are at $41 dollars each.  If Seritage is able to re-lease out the substantially holdings of Mall stores it has then the shares are worth substantially more.

First Mining Finance (CVE:FF) is going to the moon

This company is headed by a guy named Mr. Neumeyer.  Now why does this matter?  Well Keith Neumeyer built First Quantum Minerals ( https://www.google.com/finance?q=TSE%3AFM&ei=cQebVcnVL4mRmAGbka1o ) .   He took this company from a 40 cent stock to $15 dollars in about 5 to 7 years.   It is presently valued at $9.5 billion.  Then he created First Majestic Silver (https://www.google.com/finance?q=TSE%3AFR&sq=First%20Majestic%20Silver&sp=2&ei=2QebVbmBMcPDmAGfwJ-AAg) which went from $1 dollar to $20 dollars in the silver bull market, its presently at $6 dollars with a $750 market cap.  As a note First Majestic Silver is a major shareholder on First Mining Finance.  Mr. Neumeyer is First Majestic Silvers President and CEO.

Now what does this company do?  This 51 cent company owns mineral deposits throughout mexico.  It has around 20 claims and wants to have about 50 mineral deposit claims when its fully funded.  When a much larger company wants to make a mine, they may go to First Mining Finance for a property.  Whereby First Mining Finance gets a royalty or lump sum payment for the deposit.

This is probably a really good trading stock as it has a lot of volatility and is backed by big people in the business.  It wont be doing much for a while but it will be fluctuating significantly.

My 2 cents

Litecoin $230 million market cap – going higher – the bull market has begun

Litecoin ( http://coinmarketcap.com/currencies/litecoin/ ) has made a significant run lately from $60 million to $230 million and in our opinion is on its way to even bigger returns.

Granted me writing this article can usually spell the end of times for a run up, we may even correct some such as 40% but any drop is a buying opportunity.

Litecoin is Bitcoins younger and smaller in market cap brother but its volume is huge.  Even though Litecoin is 1/15th the size of Bitcoins market cap, Litecoin has trading volume of $25 million to Bitcoins $50 million.

Litecoins main utitlity and feature is that it has much faster transaction times than Bitcoin, not as fast as Bitshares but still reasonable at 2 minutes.

To sum things up, its our opinion that Litecoin will head to $1 billion market cap and a crypto currency 1.0 bull market has begun.

InterActiveCorp owner of tinder – undervalued big time

InterActiveCorp ticker symbol IACI is not valuing Tinder’s 300% growth to 50 million users or its new paid feature which I’ve read is a success.

InterActiveCorp known as IAC owns match.com, Okcupid.com, about.com, investopedia.com as well as other brands.

The company is trading for $75 dollars a share and is valued at $6 billion.  Right now the potential huge revenue stream of tinder is not being included in the valuation calculation otherwise it is my opinion IAC would be worth $15 billion dollars.

In a year from now tinder will probably have 100 million users and be valued as much as IAC is valued right now.

Vale (VALE) The Brazilian Huge Iron Ore Producer is at 80% off

Vale https://www.google.com/finance?q=NYSE%3AVALE&ei=CzlFVemqHoSXiQKt74DIAw was trading 10 years ago at $60 USD  dollars, now its trading at $8 USD .  It lost $1.6 billion last quarter (Adjusted earnings per share of 61 cents) but it is essentially a government company.  Iron ore is trading at $56 USD dollars per dry metric ton as of March 2015 while it was trading at $100 USD per dry metric ton in March of 2014.  This is a significant downtrend but in 2005 it was trading at $33 so its only up 66% in the last 10 years.

Furthermore Vale is going to increase production from 350 million tons to 450 million tons in the next several years.  Right now last quarter it produced Q1 2015 it produced 74.5 million metric tons of Iron ore, its most ever.

This is an expanding company that was worth $200 billion 10 years ago and is now worth $37 billion in 2015, even though they have significantly increased production.

Furthermore Vale has a has a 4.81% dividend that may be cut but is still pretty spiffy.

(RSX) Market Vectors Russia ETF – Up 14% in 2 months

Previously I said investing in Russian Bonds was a good idea.  It turned out to be right as Russian bond yields have come down considerably as you can see here http://www.tradingeconomics.com/russia/government-bond-yield

Russian businesses are highly undervalued at 1 – 3 times earnings (PE, Price/Earnings Ratio).  Meaning your buying businesses at 80 – 90% off based on that metric.  There is reasons for this such as the fact that Russia is a highly corrupt place but still India is corrupt and businesses are fairly valued.  Its moreso the reason because of the fact that Russians in some sense are Eur-Asians.   Russia is both in Europe and Asia at the same time, but who knows what im talking about on this front im just a financial analyst.

Right now Market Vectors Russia ETF (RSX) has a 3.59% trailing yield which is pretty good, it will probably be more than that this year but who knows.

Im still in RSX and may get out at any time but ill probably be in this for another 3 – 24 months at the least.
