Stefan Ioannou: Bottom-Fishing Opportunities in Base Metals, Especially Zinc (2/3/15) Copper is off to a rough start in 2015 and while other base metals have also shown price weakness, zinc could finish 2015 strong, says Stefan Ioannou, mining analyst with Haywood Securities. He estimates that over the previous two years about 12% of global zinc production ceased and more will end soon, ultimately leading to a run in the zinc price in late 2015 and into 2016. In this interview with The Mining Report, Ioannou discusses his top zinc pick and some high-grade, low-cost copper producers with zinc production profiles.

Stefan Ioannou: Copper, Nickel and Zinc Won't Be Cheap for Long (10/21/14) The all-powerful U.S. dollar is currently hammering base metals and base metal equities. Haywood Securities Mining Analyst Stefan Ioannou says that increasing demand and near-term supply shortages make base metals a bargain that won't last. In this interview with The Mining Report, Ioannou argues that juniors with good deposits and low costs are in a unique position to benefit, and lists several companies that look to do just that.

Stefan Ioannou's Three Things to Look for in Three Base Metal Plays (11/20/13) The fundamentals tell Stefan Ioannou, mining analyst with Haywood Securities, that the outlook is good for copper and zinc in the midterm, while for nickel, stronger-for-longer is the watchword. In this interview with The Gold Report, he warns that nickel's price is unlikely to cycle up before 2017. For all three metals, producers are the safest bet, but some splashy exploration plays could have the biggest payoff.
