Making Money with Sprott

Peter Grosskopf, CEO of Sprott Inc. is a first-time guest while Gwen Preston and Michael Oliver return. 

Sprott Inc., named after founder Eric Sprott, has attracted a team of highly talented investment managers and geo-scientists to allocate US$8 billion into the resource sector in anticipation of the next precious metals bull market. Own shares of Sprott to profit from the impending bull market and earn a 4% dividend while you wait.

Owning shares of Sprott is one way to profit from the coming bull market in precious metals. But there are a host of bullion and equity funds along with some exciting cutting-edge products that can promise to provide passive investors with portfolio diversification to protect their wealth during the impending bear market in financial assets.

Gwen talks about a few of her top picks for the upcoming Metals Investor Forum and Michael updates his comments on precious metals, stocks and bonds.

Gwen Preston is the Resource Maven. Years as a mining journalist with The Northern Miner and working along with Marin Katusa at Casey Research gave her a deep base of knowledge and a broad network of contacts in the resource sector. Then Gwen Preston decided to launch her own newsletter—Resource Maven—at the very bottom of the resource market. With a technical background, a strong network and years of experience, Gwen is not only finding winning mining stocks, but also telling investors when to sell and lock in big profits.

She understands which projects and pieces of news matter. She understands what it takes for a project to advance along the exploration-development-production path and what opportunities each stage offers. She knows how the metals markets work, alone and within the global economy, and how to profit from commodity cycles.

Michael Oliver entered the financial services industry in 1975 on the Futures side, joining E.F. Hutton’s International Commodity Division, NYC. He studied under David Johnson, head of Hutton’s Commodity Division and Chairman of the COMEX.

In the 1980’s Oliver began to develop his own momentum-based method of technical analysis. In 1987 Oliver, along with his futures client accounts (Oliver had trading POA) technically anticipated and captured the Crash. Oliver began to realize that his emergent momentum-structural-based tools should be further developed into a full analytic methodology.

In 1992 he was asked by the Financial VP and head of Wachovia Bank’s Trust Department to provide soft dollar research to Wachovia. Within a year Oliver shifted from brokerage to full-time technical research. MSA has provided its proprietary technical research services to financial and asset management clients continually since 1992. Oliver is the author of The New Libertarianism: Anarcho-Capitalism.
