It Takes a Different Breed to Be Contrarian

It Takes a Different Breed to Be Contrarian

By Justin Spittler

The most memorable scene in the film adaptation of Glengarry Glen Ross is when Alec Baldwin’s character—a hotshot real estate broker from the prestigious Mitch and Murray agency—tells a group of struggling real estate agents that it takes “brass balls to sell real estate.” There’s probably some truth to that, but it takes bigger cojones to buy what everyone else hates.

Jim Rodgers, Warren Buffett, and our own Doug Casey all made fortunes by going against the crowd. George Soros once made $1 billion in a single day by doing something everyone else thought was crazy: shorting the British pound when the Bank of England was aggressively propping up its currency.

The second-best time to invest in gold stocks

Dear Reader,

If you want to make a fortune in the resource sector, all you need to know are the two times you should buy gold stocks.

The first: Invest in a gold mining company just before it makes a tremendous discovery.

Obviously, this is a daunting task. And without hands-on experience or a field research, you’d have better odds at winning roulette.

WAIT: Don't File Those Taxes Just Yet! 

WAIT: Don't File Those Taxes Just Yet!

By

Those of you in the US know that it’s the least wonderful time of the year: tax time.

Hopefully you haven’t filed your tax return just yet. Maybe you rushed it in because you feel ever so grateful to your government for letting you keep some of your hard-earned cash. Or maybe—like most of us—you wait 'til the very last day out of principle.

Either way, chances are you’re leaving money on the table. We want to show you how to get most of it back.

Gold Stocks: This Bear sleeps at least for now

Background

2015 has started brightly with gold, silver and the miners all rallying to higher ground as evidenced by the Gold Bugs Index, the HUI, gaining 50 points or approximately 30%. This sort of behavior in any sector brings out the bulls in full cry that the bottom is in and we should all hit the acquisitions trail. Alas this rally didn’t last and the miners soon started to give back the gains almost as quickly as they were made. This pattern of falling stock prices punctuated by sudden price hikes has characterized the precious metals sector for the last three years or so. Unfortunately the bounce is rarely of the same magnitude of the preceding falls in prices and so we have witnessed the HUI fall from a high of 630 to a close today of 167, recording a drop of some 73% in the value of these stocks.

Should We Really Put Gold in an IRA?

Should We Really Put Gold in an IRA?

By Jeff Clark, Senior Precious Metals Analyst

“Gold is one of the dumbest things to put in your IRA,” said the slick TV commentator, with his $200 haircut, perfect white teeth, and superior attitude. “Everyone knows income-producing vehicles are best for an IRA.”

It was a prepackaged message from someone that sounded like he hadn’t given any more thought to the topic than what he’d read somewhere. His advice was misleading and incomplete, and I wondered how many viewers might weaken their portfolios by acting on his sound bite.

Hedge Fund Legend Julian Robertson Warns Of A "Complete Explosion" Unless Fed Contains "Boiling, Bubble" Market

Legendary hedge fund manager Julian Robertson, who has been conspicuously absent from CNBC in recent months, spoke with Fox Business' Maria Bartiromo about his take on markets. He was hardly bullish, which may explain his absence from the cadre of CNBC bubble cheerleaders.

Robertson (in addition to some generic comments on the weather impacting the jobs numbers: apparently the weather only impacted the warmer March, not the freezing January and February) said that "the thing that worries me the most are the twin bubbles that are developing, certainly the Federal Reserve, the people that run their Treasury operations, are trying to create a bubble in bonds and they are doing it."

More Unofficial Capital Controls: PFIC Rules

More Unofficial Capital Controls: PFIC Rules

By Nick Giambruno

It ranks at the very top of potential tax nightmares, especially if you invest internationally.

This nightmare could become a reality if you happen to invest in what the IRS deems a Passive Foreign Investment Company (PFIC), which are taxed at exorbitant rates and have highly complex reporting rules. Most foreign mutual funds are PFICs, as are certain foreign stocks.

It’s not illegal to invest in a PFIC,

Doug Casey: Signs of a Resource Sector Bottom

Doug Casey: Signs of a Resource Sector Bottom

By Doug Casey

Interviewed by Louis James, Editor, International Speculator

L: Well, Doug, we’ve seen another quarter of high volatility and significant world events. What strikes you as most important at present?

Doug: Everything is still held together with chewing gum and baling wire, for which I’m grateful, considering what’s coming. It’s very clear to me that the global economy is in very much the same space as it was in 2007—in other words, on the edge of a precipice.
