If you missed VRIC back in January, have no fear. Resource Investing News has gathered the top viewed videos from the event in one handy list.
During Cambridge House International’s 2015 Vancouver Resource Investment Conference in January, Resource Investing News had the pleasure of interviewing thought leaders and company CEOs who discussed a variety of topics and lent their insight into what the future may hold for various commodities.
Here we’ve put together the top five videos, just in case you missed them last month.
Rick Rule, founder of Sprott Global Resource Investments, shares his views on the economy, what global catalysts investors should watch for in 2015 and what he thinks is happening with the gold price. Rule also explains that though the US equity markets have been indicating for the last six months that a recovery is in place, he hasn’t seen that recovery.
Ross Beaty, chairman of Pan American Silver (TSX:PAA,NASDAQ:PAAS) and Alterra Power (TSXV:AXY), shares how his views of the commodities markets have changed in the past year, explaining why he is moderately bearish on most metals. He highlights worldly events such as currency wars, the Saudi oil price war and the strength of the dollar as just a few reasons why the markets are even more unstable this year. However, he notes that it is a great time to be buying metals stocks and believes renewable energy has a better outlook this year than ever before. Beaty also explains his interest in Odin Mining and Exploration (TSXV:ODN).
David Morgan, publisher of the Morgan Report and a speaker at VRIC 2015, explains why he is optimistic about the gold and silver markets for 2015, although he says it won’t be an extremely good year for either. He explains a couple of major catalysts that are driving that outlook, such as the industrial demand for silver and the ongoing currency crisis. He also lends some advice to investors regarding manipulation.
Jon Hykawy, president and director of Stormcrow Capital, talks about the current state of the rare earths market and what he sees coming for the prices in 2015. He notes that increased demand is starting to materialize and states that the rare earths industry in China is still a mystery. He also states that we are in an environment where we need strategic investors to support new production and identifies companies like Rare Element Resources (TSX:RES) and Arafura Resources (ASX:ARU) as good candidates.
Mercenary Geologist Mickey Fulp talks about a variety of topics, such as the gold price and recent developments in the uranium space, including the release of Fission Uranium’s (TSX:FCU) maiden resource estimate for Patterson Lake South, and Energy Fuels‘ (TSX:EFR,NYSEMKT:UUUU) acquisition of Uranerz Energy (TSX:URZ,NYSEMKT:URZ).
