The Most Undervalued Equity Market Sector? Gold Miners!
November 2, 2021
Hosted by Jay Taylor
John Rubino, Gwen Preston and Eric Coffin return. You might be surprised to learn that according to Bloomberg, the only S&P 500 sector (excluding Financials) that is enjoying positive free cash flows after factoring out consumer price inflation is the gold and silver mining sector. Gold & silver miners are enjoying a positive inflation adjusted free cash flow of ~+1.0%. Other sectors cash flows? Materials ~-0.5%, Consumer discretionary ~-1.0%, Energy ~-1.25%, Consumer Staples ~-1.3%, Industrials ~-2.0%, Communications services ~-2.1%, Health Care ~-2.9%, Information Technology ~-3.1%, Real Estate ~-4.75% & Utilities ~-8.5%. Meantime, for the first time since the 1970s, wage inflation is just beginning to spiral upward as labor shortage puts common workers in the driver’s seat. Workers are starting to go on strike more aggressively than any time since the 1970s leading to rising wages that lead to higher inflation, that result in still more demands from workers for still higher wages in the form of cost of living adjustments. With gold and silver mining being the only sector (besides Financials) in the S&P 500 that that has a positive inflation-adjusted free cash flow, it is the most undervalued sector in the S&P 500 and figures to be the most able to withstand spiraling labor costs, especially as the real price of gold rises off its historical lows. Those topics and more will be discussed with John. Gwen and Eric will join me to discuss their favorite junior gold and silver exploration stocks some of which they have invited to the November 2021 Metals Investor Forum.

Jay Taylor has been able to more than double his newsletter’s model portfolio from 2000 to the present even as the S&P 500 was in the process of losing 50% of its value!
The insights provided to Jay came from a history professor in 1967 who advised Jay that when countries go off a gold or silver standard, hard economic times are sure to follow because nations begin to think they do not need to work hard and save to enjoy a better life. Indeed there is no free lunch and a gold standard reminds people of that every day.
Jay watched his professor’s prophetic words come true when in 1971, President Nixon completely detached the dollar from gold. Not surprising to Jay, the price of gold skyrocketed in the late 1970s as inflation wiped out vast amounts of wealth from average Americans. To protect his own wealth Jay began to invest in gold and gold mining shares and in 1981 he began sharing his success and insights in his newsletter. In 1981 Jay began writing a subscription newsletter that has earned his subscribers countless thousands of dollars over the years.
Jay’s insights as to the real cause of our problems has enabled him to find investment strategies that work. Diagnose a problem correctly and you have a chance for success. Diagnose a problem incorrectly as the establishment does and you are sure to fail.
