The Trendiest Little Metal in Mining

In mining, as in everything else, there are trends.

Successfully identifying these trends and taking speculative positions ahead of the herd is one way to make a lot of money.

I should know. I’ve made a career of it, doing it time and again for myself and my subscribers.

We were quadrupling our money on electric vehicles as early as 2008 — two years before Tesla IPOed.

We made over 1,500% in 2016 when lithium mania hit, and dozens of companies were suddenly experts on the Clayton Valley in Nevada and the “Lithium Triangle” of Argentina. We entered Lithium X at 15 cents, and it was taken out by a Chinese firm in short order, making many of my readers wealthy overnight.

Early in 2017, we got into First Cobalt at 50 cents. Cobalt became the darling trend metal of 2017, and by November our shares were trading north of $1.65 — a gain of 230% in three months.

Graphite in 2012. Rare earths and uranium before that.

It unfolds the same way each time…

There is going to be a run on whatever the new trend metal is either because of supply disruption or because of some new technology or device that is going to create monstrous demand for it.

Spotting the buzz early is the first step.

From there, you have to look at the companies operating in that space. Be careful. Make sure each is truly a lithium or cobalt or rare earth company, and that they have expertise and a history with that resource.

There will surely be new companies popping up with the new trend metal in their names. Companies like Me Too Lithium and Come Lately Cobalt. This is a sure sign the new trend metal is getting even trendier.

Avoid those name-changing companies like the plague.

From there, as long as you’re early, all you have to do is wait for the narrative to take hold and the bandwagon to develop. And when the herd comes running, you can make your killing and start preparing for the next meal.

If past is prologue, the next trendiest metal in mining is about to deliver investors outsized returns.

Just in the past month or so, junior mining companies have been changing their names to include it.

The herd is about to come running.

Plus there is a very real Chinese event serving as our “monstrous demand” catalyst.

As with all trendy metals though, the gains will be short-lived. You’ll need to take your position now, and be ready to exit as it quickly gets frothy.

That’s why you need to be in by the end of this month — November 30th.

I’ve put all the details together for you here.

Call it like you see it,
