Uranium continues to shine as Sprott removes supply from the market at breakneck speed with their Sprott Uranium Trust vehicle. It will be interesting to see how spot moves next week – will it continue to march higher or take a breather?
In other news, bitcoin is back over $50K, gold and silver got a pop and will oil become more volatile with these missile attacks in Saudi Arabia?
It kinda feels like inflation is kicking in again. Bitcoin, Gold, Silver, Uranium are all seeing a bit of a rise. Is it a runaway train? Not yet. But we are coming out of the summer doldrums and we bought more of them today.
Uranium continues to creep higher as spot price rose to $33.50 thanks in part to the SPUT (Sprott Physical Uranium Trust) buying more of the physical commodity on the open market.
Today we sold calls / bought Energy Fuels ($UUUU), bought more Denison Mines ($DNN), sold calls / bought Metalla Royalty and Streaming ($MTA), sold calls / bought Innovio Pharmaceuticals ($INO), sold calls / bought Riot Blockchain ($RIOT) and sold calls / bought Canaan ($CAN).
As Phil Collins once sang, “I can feel it coming in the air tonight…” – is the reflation trade coming back? It feels like energy and precious metals have bottomed, and bitcoin is starting to rise again… but then again, look at Iron Ore dropping like a rock – who knows?
Today we bought Energy Fuels ($UUUU), Denison Mines ($DNN) and Transocean LTD ($RIG)
With Bitcoin at $47,486 its back above its 30 day moving average and ready to rumble. Speaking of crypto we bought more shares of Canaan ($CAN) and Riot Blockchain ($RIOT) today, along with Energy Fuels ($UUUU), Denison Mines ($DNN), IMV Inc. ($IMV) and Platinum Group Metals ($PLG). We like Bitcoin and Gold here.
Most of our issues were up today as we took an additional position in uranium company Energy Fuels ($UUUU) and the biotech firm IMV Inc. ($IMV) . Keeping an eye on Bitcoin, Oil, Gold and Silver here, but with the summer doldrums in full swing we’re not expecting any big moves.
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.
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.
