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.

China, Base Metal Tiger, Sets the Trend for Metals: Stefan Ioannou (7/1/13) Industrial metal prices have struggled to find firm footing.

In this interview with The Gold Report, Ioannou discusses companies that stand to benefit from the coming supply squeezes and China's role as both supplier and consumer of all three metals.

He expects price runs for 2013–2015, especially for zinc, which is facing a serious supply squeeze. Do your homework now to get positioned as soon as the uptick begins. Ioannou shares his favorites in this Gold Report interview.
