While a shift in the U.S. Federal Reserve’s policy outlook in mid-May soured some of gold’s near-term luster on inflation concerns, it did little to eliminate the overwhelming longer-term risks still present in global financial markets today.  Mounting government debts, an over-reliance on “cheap” money, and increasingly common black swan events are just several of the factors supporting our thesis for higher gold prices. 

Similarly, we maintain an optimistic outlook for the miners.  Current prices are still well above the gold industry’s average cost of production and managements are as committed as ever to ensuring the financial stability and execution of longer-term growth and capital return objectives for their companies.  

  • Recent moves in the price of gold
  • Our inflation outlook and lingering risks to the financial markets
  • Developments among several of our favorite positions with a highlight on some juniors
