Rick Rule has dedicated his entire adult life to many aspects of natural resources securities investing. In addition to the knowledge and experience gained in a long and focused career, he has a global network of contacts in the natural resources and finance sectors. In this session, he will discuss investing and speculating in the non-precious metals and materials markets, such as energy, uranium, base metals, agriculture, and battery metals.
Ultra-easy money and major fiscal spending are a great recipe for much higher metals prices, but we know it isn't that simple. Our panel of experts will cover all the factors affecting metals and mining and give a clear forecast for the rest of the year.
Investors and speculators are concerned about the decline in precious metals prices, and the more precipitous declines in precious metals equities prices. Rick Rule puts these declines in a factual—and historical—context and makes the investment case for the sector.
Natural Resource markets are both cyclical and volatile. The cycles are fairly predictable. When broadly used commodities sell for less than the total cost of production, either the commodity price rises, or the products become unavailable. The best opportunities are often the least popular! This discussion with Rick Rule will include current examples and opportunities.
