Investing in Gold Miners: The Midas Touch
James Rasteh, CIO and co-founder of Coast Capital, joins Real Vision CEO, Raoul Pal, to discuss successful strategies for investing in gold mining stocks. Overspending on exploration has for the past decade been the most heinous sin of gold miners, Rasteh tells Pal, and that’s why balance sheet discipline can help unlock deep pockets of value in stocks other investors have overlooked. Rasteh shares with Pal specific examples wherein his activist strategy has been extremely successful, such as Jaguar Mining, as well as other companies he thinks have a bright future. Lastly, Rasteh and Raoul discuss the macro drivers of owning gold miners, and explore the risks and rewards of owning large-cap mining stocks vs. their mid- and small-cap counterparts.
