Attention, energy investors! The Obama administration is barking big about carbon emissions… It’s after state-by-state “targets” to reduce carbon emissions from power plants by an average of 17% from current levels… and 30% from 2005 levels. And it wants it done by 2030. The New York Times – of course – LOVED it… Mr. Obama’s […]

This article was originally published on my new site and newsletter, Contrarian Profits. The panic selling in precious metals is giving us a special contrarian treat. I’m talking about a former inflation hedge sweetheart that’s being unfairly dumped and is now trading very close to its cost of production. But as savvy resource investors know, […]

When gold and silver crashed, I dialed in my favorite leveraged proxies for close viewing – Royal Gold (RGLD) and Silver Wheaton (SLW). Both are great businesses – junior miners who don’t actually do any mining.  Rather they are royalty companies, who own the gold and silver in the ground respectively, and cut deals with […]

Marin joins us today to accept his trophy, and also invite you to a webinar he’s hosting about the prospects of […]

There are two entry strategies I like to employ when trading agriculture.  The first, and classic, is to enter a position on a significant breakout to the upside – as we highlighted recently with regards to cotton futures. This tried-and-true trend following play concedes the first 10-20% of a move, with the goal of catching […]

Just nine months ago, we were licking our chops at cotton’s blue light price special.  Cotton had been smashed from a post-Reconstruction high of over $2 to WAYYY down below the $0.70 mark. Cotton futures have quietly dipped to their lowest levels in two years, prompting our “contrarian alert” to sound.  Likely, cotton will base […]

Shame on me for not doing my homework on this trade! As I was reading the Weekend WSJ on Saturday, while fitting enjoying a french pressed cup of arabica coffee, I learned why my recent coffee trade was ill-timed.  The market has been increasingly swapping out arabica beans for their cheaper robusta cousins, resulting in […]
