Source: Brian Sylvester of The Mining Report  (4/28/15)
We are five years into this new market for rare earths: five years that dawned with higher rare earth elements prices, that unfolded with a new generation of publicly listed junior resources companies with REE properties and projects, and that saw a vicious bear market spread across the domestic and global mining sectors. But soon we will turn the page, says Ryan Castilloux, founding director and market research analyst with Adamas Intelligence, following a price rally for magnetic REEs that could regenerate investor interest and further buoy the sector. In this interview with The Mining Report, Castilloux discusses four REE projects that continue to advance, as well as companies making strides with REE extraction and separation technologies.

Source: Brian Sylvester of The Gold Report  (4/27/15)
Randall Abramson, CEO/portfolio manager with Toronto-based Trapeze Asset Management, says that picking stocks can be like picking strawberries. If a strawberry looks terrific, other than a tiny blemish, you simply remove the blemish and enjoy the rest. But if the fruit turns out to be rotten, the entire strawberry is for the birds. Is the stock price below fair market value because there's a little blemish and the market is overreacting? Or is it a sign that the stock is rotten to the core? In this interview with The Gold Report, Abramson offers a fist full of small- and large-cap gold equity names for investors that can look past the blemishes to see quality fruit. More >
