Gold & Silver Markets
A special focus has been in the gold and silver area. Below is a record of that achievement.
Bonanza Project - Vaults of Value (condensed version)
During the bull market of 1978 to 1980, many large mining companies at least tripled. For example, Homestake Mining went from $30 in 1978 to $107 in 1980. Numerous low priced and undervalued gold and silver stocks increased considerably more during that period. From late 2008 to 2010, another undervalued and profitable event also occurred.
For those with vision, it should also be noted these vaults are the primary sources of future gold and silver supplies.
Vital Premiere Portfolio details, descriptions and background on the Bonanza Project are in our Pendulum Trader website described here.
A summary of the results so far is below.
Trader Garrett's Historical Gold/Silver Portfolio Results
64 stocks achieved core status in this area.
Core Status Definition: To be elevated to a core position, a stock must have achieved at least a 100% net gain in the portfolio. At that point, 50% is sold for a complete return of initial risk capital and the rest rides for free. Alternatively, a few were sold with less then a 100% gain by calculating the number of shares needed to return the initial risk capital. Typically, no core position is sold unless a substantial and material adverse change occurs or the company is bought out. The historical portfolio results above represents completed core positions.
