Rick Rule – Master Class

Master Class ·
Featuring Rick Rule

Published on: March 25th, 2016 • Duration: 54 minutes

In this fascinating episode of the Master Class series, Rick Rule, President & CEO of Sprott U.S. Holdings Inc., gives us insight into the career that led him to become CEO of one of the world's largest resource holding companies. Rick gives his outlook on the current resource market including oil and uranium, discusses contrarian opportunity in the current liquidation phase in commodities, and candidly discusses the lessons he learned from a cyclical industry downturn.

    Rick Rule is an intellectual de force. The 10 year treasury currently yielding 1.9% which is 30 basis point above the video date which was almost 3 years ago. So it looks like that gold is wining the battle vs the dollar as Rick has mentioned.

    Interesting. and yet, Oil managed to recover from 2016 lows. and Junk Bond did not collapse (not as yet at least), Production cost managed to be reduced,Oil producers manage to stay afloat 15 months after the interview.

    So many of the ideas I have had were vindicated by the views expressed by Mr. Rule. The most important trait that all of us must maintain in this turbulent times is the discipline of patience. This interview just blew me out of the water, especially the last three minutes. So, glad I found this website!

    Amazingly I missed this in March! Open thoughtful reflective conversation. I can see why this got the thumbs, and suspect the thumbs down votes were from folks who personally just don't "like" Rick. This is just more "food" for those investors struggling to wonder what might give them some big gains in the medium to long term. Take 10% of your investment capital and carefully risk it by buying the best run coal, uranium, gold and silver companies. Feels like you could see value losses of 10, 20 or even 30%. BUT if you have a strong constitution and didn't over commit your core vs investment capital, it feels like 100% min gains are highly likely within 5 to 10 years. History is on your side.

    I have had an account with Rick for many years. My regret is that this absolutely 10 star advice is not interesting to any of my younger relatives. You can't possibly get a better education.

    Phenomenal interview. This is what TV should be. I learned so much and was engaged from start to finish. And I love the fact that he didn't sound like a gold salesman which gets annoying.

    Love Rick Rule he is not fooled by Randomness --- he gets it , which unfortunately many do not. I believe he is right and I suspect so does Grant Williams who I also love.

    Always thought Rick Rule was a bit condescending/arrogant in a good way. Never really paid much attention to him. This one interview changed my view. It was superb. His best ever. Learned a lot.
