Michael Ballanger Michael Ballanger of GGM Advisory Inc. explains why he believes Vortex Metals Inc. is a Strong Buy.

It was only late October that you will all recall me writing about two dozen times that I was accumulating shares in Norseman Silver, now Fitzroy Minerals Inc. (FTZ:TSX.V; FTZFF:OTCQB), under $.05 per share.

I actually bought a good chunk of stock at $0.045 and then stuck in an open order to buy 500,000 at $0.035, 4 GGM Advisory EMAIL ALERT, thinking full well that no one would be dumb enough desperate enough to sell it to me.

Well, someone was desperately in need of "getting out" because they sold it to me, and now that constitutes the bulk of my current position in the GGMA 2024 Trading Account, sits with an average cost of about CA$0.10 per share after buying it from 2020-2023 at prices considerably higher. The former Norseman Silver, now Fitzroy Minerals, trades at $0.145 after hitting $0.22 a few weeks ago, which is a huge move from the sub-$0.05 range it was at in October.

The point here is that when I keep sending out these alerts that sound like a nagging fishwife demanding firewood on a blustery day, it is not my OCD acting up or a septuagenarian memory in dysfunctional distress. It is because I want to pound home the message that Vortex Metals Inc. (VMSSF:OTCMKTS;VMS:TSX;DM8:FSE) should be bought.

When Michael Williams told me in 2019 that Aftermath Silver Ltd. (AAG:TSX.V) was going to have a good run, I took him at his word but only bought a modest position after the COVID crash took the stock back down from $0.50 to $0.08 in that panic-driven sell-off. I should have bought a million shares at under a dime, but I bought a relatively small number only to watch it trade as high as CA$1.70 by the following January.

Now, there are no guarantees that VMS will be another AAG, but with Michael Williams at the corporate helm and ex-BHP country manager John Larson managing the exploration program at Illapel, I feel very confident about the current sub-$0.20 prices will be a distant memory later this spring. This management group has power.

VMS is a Strong Buy.
