Digging for Opportunity in Precious Metals, Part I

This brings us to the Mother of All Low Tides: the precious metal sector. Envision two sectors. One sector has been rising for 12 consecutive years, during which time it has outperformed all others and produced stellar returns for investors.

The other sector has been shunned by mainstream investors to the point where the majority of market participants have invested only roughly 1% as much capital in this sector as the historical average, throughout the entire history of our markets. It is continually described by the mainstream media as "about to collapse" and avoided by most "respectable" financial management professionals because it is "too risky."

Now try to wrap your head around the notion that these "two sectors" are the same sector: precious metals. How is it possible that the best-performing asset class over the past 12 years has been (and remains) more under-owned than at any time in the entire history of our markets?

I've already answered this question. Twelve years of mainstream Chicken Littles warning investors continuously that "the sky is about to fall" on gold and/or silver. Twelve years of financial management professionals warning their clients that the best-performing asset class was/is/will always be "too risky."

Now, after this (simultaneous) 12-year low-tide/bull market in precious metals the "low tide" has gotten even lower, the Chicken Littles suddenly even more shrill. Nowhere, anywhere in markets, has the tide receded as far as it has with the gold and silver miners , producers of these shunned-but-outperforming commodities.

With prices having fallen over the short term in both the bullion markets and fallen much further with the majority of the miners, investors have a clear and simple choice as to whom they listen in answering the question "what comes next?"

They can choose to listen to the same mainstream Chicken Littles and same financial management "professionals" who have unerringly and unequivocally been wrong about precious metals month after month, year after year.

Or, investors can choose to listen to the much smaller cadre of professionals within the precious metals sector who have been consistently right over that same time period.
