Lifton & Weslosky Technology Metal Report

IIR On this holiday weekend, I thought I would extend a complimentary viewing of the Lifton & Weslosky Technology Metal Report, a special weekly video that is published on InvestorIntelReport for members every Wednesday. Jack was in Toronto on Wednesday and Thursday, and during lunch he explained that he preferred the term "Intelligence" -- so the name InvestorIntelReport may be a placeholder, but moving forward we will be producing this video weekly for publication on our InvestorIntelReport only. And please, for those that are not in love with this formula appreciate that all of the content you find on InvestorIntel is all-original and…

Heartbleed Bug ‘contagion’ creates market malaise

Contagion Our last week ended with the rumbling from the confusion that came from disruptive impact of the Heartbleed bug that had online paranoia at an all-time high. In case you have not drilled down through the endless media coverage and analysis on what happened here’s what your computer(s) and various electronics may or may not have caught: “The Heartbleed bug allows anyone on the Internet to read the memory of the systems protected by the vulnerable versions of the OpenSSL software. This compromises the secret keys used to identify the service providers and to encrypt the traffic, the names and…

investorintelreport.png.xar Let’s enjoy this ride as March is the last month we will have the REE Leaders Index. And for the record, this is the only rare earth index in the world calculated by FTSE. Alas, REEL closed down 9.50%, closing at 284.01 versus the InvestorIntel members – up +2.17%. I was in NYC at John Tumazos Very Independent Research event on Monday, so you’re in luck this week with both the month-in-review for March 2014 and week-in-review ending April 4th, so you can get your gas pedals ready as I Tesla-drive you through an update that is sure to have…

Medallion Resources: On a direct course to rare earth production

Tracy-Interviews-Don-Lay-of-Medallion-Resources April 7, 2014 -- Don Lay, President of Medallion Resources ('Medallion', TSXV: MDL | OTCQX: MLLOF) speaks to Tracy Weslosky, Editor-in-Chief and Publisher of InvestorIntel, about Medallion's unique position in the rare earths sector. Medallion is not an exploration play and is unique in that it is focused on "getting to production quickly and Dr. Bird, whom I am partnered with, is really the brains behind this. He believes that the best way to get to a significant rare earth production in the short term is by exploiting by-product resources from rare earths." Medallion's resource, in that respect is monazite,…

‘Very Independent’ Tumazos highlights Largo, Rare Element Resources and Texas Rare Earth

NYC Attended the John Tumazos Very Independent Research event in NYC on Monday and am delighted I made the last minute plans to attend for numerous reasons because, for starters -- I enjoyed meeting several members from the CME Saturday evening while relaxing at the Concord downtown. I had stepped into the Atria to savor over a glass of wine celebrating the fact that I had (finally) completed reading Dr. Luc Duchesne’s latest pre-press novel he is preparing for publication. In fact, I was honestly contemplating how InvestorIntel could have been so lucky as to have one of the greatest writers…

Rockstar on gold and reducing risk for the weekend

rockstar It’s Friday, and as we as investors are feeling the wear of winter – let’s discuss how to "reduce risk and reduce insanity" with gold, perhaps? Called Rockstar en route to work with this idea, and standing in line at Starbucks I start with: “Gold? What’s happening hotstuff?” Responding positively to his new nickname, he starts with: “If the Euro continues to strengthen today, and gold does not ‘catch a bid’ -- then we should expect it to weaken.” Reuters quotes an analyst from London in an online piece this AM titled Gold hits 6-week lows, poised for second weekly loss with a differing…

Market is like “waiting for water to boil”

War-Cycle InvestorIntelReport Week-in-Review: Just tell everyone ‘we are phucked’ said Rockstar in reply to market questioning on Saturday. Hmmm, I thought – I prefer our book-keeper’s commentary that "it feels like we are waiting for water boil". At the end of the day, I agree with numerous members of our financial community that see strong signals that we have entered a "war cycle" in our marketplace, which means that basically investors need to tread carefully in the marketplace, as we genuinely have no idea where the mines are located. And this makes it different from post 2008, how? Speaking of mines, rare…
