As of this writing, bitcoin is trading at $41,745 – is it headed higher or a head fake? We don’t know for sure. We do know that our Riot Blockchain ($RIOT) calls made a late stage comeback this week and busted through strike… a sign of things to come?
Commodities are back in vogue – well at least for now.
Uranium is starting to glow again. Sold more Energy Fuels $UUUU Sept $6 Calls today. Bought some Energy Fuels $UUUU Oct $6 Calls today. Need a play on Dennys ($DNN) but its in no mans land. Tried writing some Sept puts @ $1 but not a lot of meat on that bone. C’mon Dennys.
Tankers are going nowhere fast right now and we like them. DHT Holdings, Inc. ($DHT) is our kinetic rocket for the sector. Here is a long-term chart depicting the ratio of the Nasdaq Composite to Frontline Ltd. ($FRO) another tanker company that has been around awhile:
As you can see from this chart, the Nasdaq has really outperformed tankers for the past 10 years or so… a trend that could start reversing itself in the future.
Elon Musk sent crypto soaring today with his announcement that Tesla bought $1.5 billion in bitcoin. Also, uranium continues to catch a bid with stocks trending much higher today on the back of gains on Friday.
Our crypto kinetic rocket Canaan ($CAN) was up big today, along with our uranium kinetic rockets Energy Fuels ($UUUU) and Denison Mines ($DNN).
Finally, Denison did announce some ramp-up of its Wheeler River evaluation plans today here.
Was it the Uranium? Was it the Vanadium? Was it the Rare Earth Elements? We don’t know exactly, but what a day for Energy Fuels. Things seem to be looking up for this provider of elements needed to power the 21st century. Perhaps thats why it is our largest kinetic rocket.
Sandstorm Gold is a gold royalty company that we have liked for quite some time. We have been hesitant to take a position recently because of the stock’s impressive run up. However, now that the stock price has pulled back to the low $6 range we are jumping in. Sandstorm Gold is our newest kinetic rocket.
I read recently that gold royalty companies perform well later in gold bull markets compared to the miners. When gold rises in a bull market, so does the price of other commodities that are required to mine gold – such as oil. The differentiator for a royalty company vs a miner is that their costs are fixed and not variable – since their per ounce price is set when negotiating the royalty. So, when commodity prices increase, royalty company margins are protected.
We are excited to have Sandstorm as a new addition to our kinetic rocket portfolio.
Crypto is surging today as Bitcoin has risen to $38,176. Our favorite way to play the crypto market is with Canaan, Inc. ($CAN) – a maker of super computers like the AvalonMiner 1246. Canaan, Inc. is one of our new kinetic rockets because from Bitcoin to Dogecoin they all need to be mined and what better way to do it than with a supercomputer.
After yesterdays craziness with the #silversqueeze things are settling back to normal in the silver and uranium markets. Ho-hum. And what have we here? Is crypto catching a bid? Bitcoin is at $34,964 as I type this – interesting… we did see Canaan ($CAN) one of our new kinetic rockets and our crypto play move higher.
