Investment and Returns is a Science – Can You Afford Not to Participate?
Clarity is crucial when investing in revolutionary spaces. With such high volatility, the only investors who know when to hold and when to dump are those who can see order in the market chaos. This is pretty much an analyst’s entire job, and so we are truly excited by the number of panel discussions taking place at this year’s 7th Annual InvestorIntel Summit, Buds, Batteries and Blockchain 2018.
As MD of a mining & metals analyst firm I’ve been shouting about batteries for over a decade, and have personally touted blockchain as a potential ethics bolster for the artisan miners who contribute more than anyone to the mining industry; Lance Hooper and Samuel Peralta from Cobalt Blockchain Inc. (TSXV: COBC) will be leading a talk on Ethically Sourcing Cobalt from the DRC using blockchain on Day 2 of this year’s event.
Everyone benefits from debate; either you find out you were right or walk away with a stronger position. Like the scientific method, only louder and not so absurdly laborious. By gathering up those-most-involved and getting them to present their opinions and their stories, you get to hear what the big-wigs are thinking right now and in which direction they are taking their operations – very revealing information indeed.
On the first morning, InvestorIntel has a pretty spectacular lineup to discuss Batteries and Electric Vehicles – the ‘critical’ in market materials. The guys listed below will reveal the supply chain issues that impact shareholders most and how these affect demand and prices for rare earths, cobalt, lithium, vanadium and graphite.
- Nic Earner, Alkane Resources Corp.
- Gavin Lockyer, Arafura Resources Limited
- Don Bubar, Avalon Advanced Materials Inc.
- Paul Farquharson, eCobalt Solutions Inc.
- Chris Reed, Neometals Ltd.
- Greg Bowes, Northern Graphite Corp.
- Tim McCutcheon, Wealth Minerals Ltd.
Later that day, Tracy herself will be chairing a debate on the viciously competitive world of raising capital for new ideas and businesses in the high risk marijuana and blockchain markets. Blockchain technology is considered to be one of the most disruptive technologies to date and you definitely don’t want to be on the sidelines when this panel takes place

This panel is followed by a look at the ramifications of supply chain economics on demand and stock prices. The conference will cover in detail cobalt deals forged between Glencore and a Chinese recycler, rendering Tesla’s promises regarding sustainability, dependability, and reliance on American sources potentially impossible to achieve.
The first day will conclude with tips for how to stay ahead of the curve, spot the winners and make some money by following the braniacs.
Day two is just as exciting with a panel focused on understanding the marijuana market. The recent legalisation of a once black-market has become an unprecedented investment opportunity and you definitely don’t want to be left behind the curve.
The rest of the day looks at potential Marijuana investments, answering all the tough questions we should be asking as intelligent investors and whether blockchain investments still has legs.
It doesn’t take a genius to see that this is a list of experts, and in any science, the expert consensus always holds sway. And if you think investment is not a science, maybe compare your portfolio performance to that of someone who does.
