That is why veteran investors like Tom Swaney, president of California-based Harwood Capital Inc., like to meet management in person at events like the California Capital Conference. - 12/07/2015

Junior Miners Becoming Attractive Takeover Targets

There have been some exciting mergers and acquisitions (M&As) within the junior mining sector over the past few months. As gold and silver settle from the previous move, many projects will be rerated and acquired by majors that are struggling with decreasing resources. I believe the industry is undergoing consolidation and we are seeing the beginning of a major international race to control future gold and silver ounces in the ground. The bull market in gold and silver is intact and, though we may see some short-term pullbacks in bullion prices, the junior mining sector will continue to outperform. - 11/03/2010
