Trillion Energy’s CEO Arthur Halleran joined us for a much-anticipated sponsor update. The company is fresh from a C$22.5 million massively oversubscribed offering and how has the cash to start spudding wells. Halleran recently visited Turkey to accelerate the project and expects the first wells to be spudded later this summer. 

A lot has happened in the past 18 months. Turkish natural gas prices have more than tripled to $21 mcf and the expectation is that they will go higher still in the months ahead. There’s no end in sight to the Ukraine war and Russia has drastically curtailed European gas sales. A cold winter could lead to dramatically higher prices and Trillion is poised to profit from it. The plan is to eventually have at least 17 producing wells. While the SASB field was a prodigious producer in the past, new technology and drilling methods should lead to record production for many years ahead. Best of all capex will be low as existing infrastructure replacement according to Halleran is over C$500 million.

The company’s Bulgarian project was on the backburner till recently due to the global pandemic. It has worked to Trillion’s advantage. The company now has optionality, it can use SASB cash flow to finance production, or it can bring on a production partner. The profit potential is clear with gas now trading at $22 per mcf and Russian induced shortages are prevalent. 

We’re still extremely bullish about Trillion and continue to hold shares.

Credit repair expert Paul Oster comes on FSN to talk about the importance of paying off your debt—especially in our current economy. Since stimulus checks are no longer being issued, it’s time to re-acclimate and formulate a plan for debt free living. As rates go up, it will take people more money and a longer period of time to pay off debt. Once you create a plan to get out of debt, you’ll wish you had started sooner. Tune in for more insight from Paul, and visit his website for credit repair resources and coaching.

-The stimulus has run out, and defaults on housing are going up
-Early on in a down-turn, we see 30-day lates with payments
-We have to give people a chance to re-acclimate to reality
-Consumers need to pay attention to their household budget
-Middle to lower income families are the ones who are going to get hit the hardest
-This is not a housing crisis at all—many factors have had a tremendous impact on all markets
-The demand in housing is so high that it is driving prices through the roof
-Most people in debt are not in a position to pay their current bills on time, and need to meet with a financial advisor
-If we’re going to get out of debt, where is the money coming from? It ultimately comes from cutting expenses

We were joined by Tier One Silver’s CEO/President Peter Dembicki and SVP of Exploration Christian Rios for a sponsor update. The company is resuming its exploration program as the Peruvian rainy season has ended. The Phase one results at the Curibaya project were quite impressive. CEO Dembicki observed that, “… the company is at the start of a major silver discovery.” The company hit bonanza and high-grade silver in a number of drill holes.

Exciting as these discoveries were, there’s every indication that a large copper porphyry deposit is lurking. To aid its efforts, the company brought in two world-class consultants to review the drill results and set the course for Phase two of the program. SVP Rios has laid out a strategy of doing more surface sampling to better develop future drill targets.


The company is also moving forward with its Hurricane Silver project and will be conducting geochemical and geophysical surveys at the Magdalena target area, where five mineralized vein corridors were identified with recent channel sampling results including 6 m of 239 g/t Ag, 1.21% Cu, 0.34% Pb, 0.15% Zn and 1 m of 605 g/t Ag, 0.26% Cu, 5.79% Pb, 0.21% Zn. A social access agreement was recently obtained here.

It’s hard to believe that Tier One was formed a little more than a year ago. The results to date have been impressive, but the company is picking up the pace and more positive news is expected. Fresh from a C$6 million capital raise, the company is well-funded. It’s noteworthy that even in the depressed junior sector, investors enthusiastically ponied up additional funds to advance the company.

With a world-class team and the proven ability to get the job done, Tier One’s future looks bright, and we’re among the company’s shareholders looking for a large return from our patience.

Energy prices have skyrocketed. Who is to blame, and are they going to improve? Jeff Petrash, a lifelong participant in the energy system, chats with me in this episode about natural gas and its centrality to today’s energy usage. Current natural gas prices are the product of multiple factors, including the pandemic and the war in Ukraine. This energy source must be understood from the perspective of supply and demand, and its infrastructure. Tune in for more expert insight.

-Natural gas has been doing nothing but going up, and is in the midst of a parabolic move—having a profound effect on the economy
-Natural gas has become more important to the economy over the past 20-30 years than petroleum
-Current natural gas prices are attributed to the war in Ukraine and the pandemic
-During the pandemic, demand for natural gas lowered, so production was decreased
-The demand has come back, but production cannot ramp up again quickly
-The economist will say that the cure to high prices is high prices
-We’re seeing double digit gas prices in Europe, and they’re going to want to cut back on their dependency on Russia as much as possible
-ESG bandwagon has tried to divert investments away from fossil fuels
-Does it make sense to build an infrastructure that won’t be needed in the next 40 years?
-We have a relatively basic industry, but it’s not fully understood

New York Times bestselling author Sam Liebman sits down and chats with me about real estate; specifically, the we discuss the valuation of office buildings, which is rapidly decreasing. This is largely attributed to the pandemic. Many tenants stopped paying rent, and Sam predicts that valuation of office buildings will soon be lower than mortgage. With less people going back to work, this sector of real estate is looking barren. Tune in for more information.

-Interest rates have gone through the roof
-The real problem is the technology regarding the effects on office buildings and retail
-You don’t have to live in the city to do business in the city anymore
-Manhattan office buildings are only 40% occupied—which is terrible for the valuation of real estate
-During the pandemic, tenants were not paying rent
-Soon, valuation will be lower than mortgage
-We are probably going to see an avalanche of foreclosures.
-Rents are going up, but so are operating expenses (i.e. insurance)
-Governance has fallen victim to politics
-Remote work is still very attractive to people considering employment options
-Florida wants to cap the amount you can increase rents to 15%
-If Florida doesn’t have an income tax, where is the money going to come from to build? It needs more infrastructure

There’s a major storm hitting financial markets across the globe. How do you use this as an opportunity rather than fearing it? I sit down and chat with Mariusz Skonieczny, and we focus on the destruction that needs to happen in order for the economy to ever be able to heal. Trying to indefinitely put off economic pain never works. At the end of the day, we have to face things like recession to move forward, which entails fixing the supply chain and lowering prices.

Regardless of what the Fed does in terms of rates, we are going to face inflation for years to come. To analyze some of the consequences of the intense money supply increase, I chat with Miles Franklin CEO, Andy Shectman.

How do we survive the carnage in the markets?

The dollar isn’t doing too well under our democratic presidency. With that in mind, it’s important to think about inflation and how this dictates the future of many commodities. Here to talk about this is Eric Hadik from INSIIDE Track Trading, and he provides a technical analysis of commodities—specifically in regard to how they will pan out later this year. Tune in to hear why commodity price inflation will most likely have a significant top in Q3, and other predictions that will help prepare you for what’s to come.

-Over 2 years ago, it was said that the dollar does better when democrats are in office, but the case seems to be different today
-A governing Republican philosophy is that a lower dollar is better (increases exports)
-During the Reagan administration, a strong dollar hurt some of the American economy
-Eric’s predictions in 2016 about a top in the dollar led him to believe that a republican was going to be in office
-From a commodity price inflation perspective (i.e. grains, key commodies) commodities are probably going to have a significant top in the September/October 2022 time frame, or in the cusp of Q3/Q4
-A high, however, doesn’t necessarily consist of one uninterrupted up-trend
-The middle half of June will most likely be the next peak; energy markets will set a peak in the next 10 days, and Eric expects prices to come down
-Precious metals are entering what should be their most advantageous period
-There are isolated commodities that could still see higher levels further down the line
-Discuss two major upside price objectives for natural gas
-Natural gas could go substantially higher before it finds its level

The markets have no place to go but down, and in response, everyone is piling out. How low are the markets, and how low is low enough? Chris Vermeulen comes on the show to put this concept into perspective. The current panic and uncertainty within the markets cause people to move to currency, which is one of the most effective ways to protect capital in these conditions. Tune in for more insight about where the markets are headed, and strategies to consider for the conceivable future.

-It’s a bloodbath today across the markets, and we haven’t seen this panic since 2021
-The problem with panic is that everything goes down (i.e. commodities, precious metals)
-Even if people don’t want to sell their positions, they have to
-When people are nervous, they move to currency
-We could still continue to see a pretty big drop and more volatility; there is still a lot of downside
-Chris predicts that we’re entering a multi-year bear market in equities
-Protecting capital and moving to cash is one of the best things you can do
-As price goes down, liquidity goes down; gold is getting slaughtered and silver is down $1 today
-We’re seeing signs of even lower prices to come
-You can avoid the bear market by moving cash and can take advantage of some of these opportunities
-We’re coming into a time where big money is made on advances and declines
-The commodity super cycle could be in effect for the next 3-5 years
-Expect to see a couple of large hedge funds bite the dust

In our latest report, we outline the main reasons why electricity prices will double in the next 18 months. We also explain how you can lessen or mitigate these affects by using the futures markets to cushion the blow and offset higher costs. Anyone can do it, whether you're buying options, futures or just resource stocks, like oil and gas producers. It's what the big companies have been doing for years. How come Southwest Airlines' profits never seem to get hit by higher jet fuel prices? Simple, it's because they buy their fuel in the forward market when they're trading cheaply. You can do the same. Always have a plan in place for when the government messes up, which they do all the time.

There are numerous negative trends surfacing in the economy, so I sit down with John Rubino to discuss some of the greater issues that need to be addressed, and have yet to be solved by the government. Some of the most pressing problems at the moment lie in energy; we are tight on resources and, as a result, other industries (such as agriculture) are suffering.
