Lobo Tiggre: The Caveat Emptor Investment Philosophy
Tom welcomes back Lobo Tiggre founder and CEO of Louis James LLC. He is the principal analyst and editor of the IndependentSpeculator.com. Lobo points out that there are a lot of experts that target investors and one should be wary of their motives.
He says, “Today, everything looks good for gold as as all the politicans will spend more money.” Trump has stated that he will not shut the economy down again but politics today carries additional near term risk.
In the event of a Democrat victory there would be some negative implications for US mining stocks. Right now even a steady flat price level for gold would be good for most mining companies.
Today the economy is on life support stimulus that can’t be stopped. However, it’s possible that no amount of money printing will save the economy. We are in uncharted waters and no one knows what will happen as a result.
The belief today seems to be that printing doesn’t cause inflation. The more overconfident central banks become the greater the risk becomes of something breaking.
Lobo discusses various opportunities in mining and how there are crucial moments in a mining companies development life where these stocks can outperform.
