Matt Geiger: Gold Holds Strong in the Face of High Rates
Tom welcomes back MJG Capital Managing Partner Matt Geiger to the show. Matt remarks on the recent rallies and predicts that a smaller rally could occur on a Fed pause, while noting that reaching new highs is still in the realm of possibility. He believes the next decade holds promise for investing in miners and commodities and that this will eventually trickle down to junior miners, making him feel comfortable with the current situation.
Macro factors are aligning well for precious metals, with mid-tiers beginning to pick up and the broader markets waiting in anticipation. Matt predicts that mining will eventually become more popular among younger generations. He also acknowledges the hype surrounding lithium mining, but believes that a correction is needed in that market with the trend moving towards lithium ion phosphate batteries.
Matt is seeing increasing M&A activity, including some significant acquisitions. He provides advice on investing in junior miners and explorers; suggesting that betting on the people rather than individual projects is usually the best approach.
