Kerry Lutz interviewed Chris Prefontaine, the Smart Real Estate Coach, about his company's success in a rising interest rate environment. Prefontaine explained how his company buys properties subject to existing loans and creates three paydays from each deal, making it a lucrative opportunity for investors.

Additionally, they discussed the legal considerations involved in subject too and lease purchase deals and provided resources for those interested in learning more about creative real estate deals.

Kerry Lutz and John Rubino discussed the current state of the economy, including the recent drop in interest rates and the concerning trend of rising deficits and lack of fiscal control in the government. They explored potential solutions, including a gold standard or austerity measures, but concluded that there may be no easy way out of the current situation and that a financial crisis may be necessary to impose austerity and bring the country back to living within its means. The speakers also discussed the risks associated with stock buybacks and how companies manipulate their financial statements to inflate profits and hide losses. They urged listeners to visit their respective websites for more information and to send in questions for future meetings.

  • Hedge fund guy Bill Ackman sold his T-bond shorts, called the interest rate top and rates fell hard. 
  • Wall Street landlords are in a bind, with interest rates up and house prices falling. Brutal 2024 coming?
  • This year's budget deficit with be the third highest ever. Why?
  • Stock buyback blackout is ending and analysts predict massive buying. What big company in its right mind would buy back its stock now? 
  • UAW strike is spreading. Is labor unrest the new normal?
  • Biden really wants a shot at Iran here. Very dangerous week.

Kerry Lutz and Dudley Baker discussed the current state of the mining sector, which has been struggling despite higher gold prices. They emphasized the importance of patience and owning quality stocks, as well as the potential for gains in smaller speculative plays. They also discussed the various ways to invest in gold, including playing the futures market and buying mining stocks, with Baker suggesting a more conservative approach with a basket of quality mining stocks. The discussion also touched on the advantages of investing in stock warrants over options, with Baker explaining that stock warrants with a long life of two to five years are preferable.

The speakers predicted a significant turn coming soon in the precious metal sector and emphasized the need for patience and research to find the best investment opportunities, particularly in smaller companies with long-term potential. They also mentioned their own service, Common Stock Warrants, which tracks new warrants coming into the junior mining space and offers subscribers the opportunity to get in early on potential big up moves. The discussion highlighted the potential benefits of stock warrants and how they can be used to make a profit. Overall, the speakers agreed that investing in gold and mining stocks can be a rewarding but risky endeavor, and investors should carefully consider their risk tolerance and investment goals.

We sat down with Torq Resources’ CEO Shawn Wallace and Chief Geological Office Michael Henrichsen (🇨🇦 TORQ: 🇺🇸 TRBMF). Results were just announced from Torq’s phase III drill program at the Margarita iron-oxide-copper-gold project. With 14 holes spanning 3,862 m, the program has expanded the Falla 13 discovery and uncovered yet more mineralized zones within Margarita. They intersected 42 m of 1.1 g/t Gold and 0.48% Copper Near Falla 13 and 132 m of 0.48% Copper at Cototuda. Broad copper oxide zones were also found at the previously drilled Margarita corridor. No doubt more good news is on the way, with results from seven more holes expected shortly. 

Shawn expressed excitement over the project's potential given its strategic location near Copiapo's city, with high-grade infrastructure, and favorable conditions for year-round drilling. He remarked on the considerable value these discoveries added to Torq's Margarita project, with 2024 set to be an important year.

Michael emphasized the significance of the new findings. He highlighted the discovery of a parallel structure to the Falla 13 zone, and the promise shown by the Cototuda target. He stated that the Margarita's potential is a continuing story and hopes that it will become another shining star within Coastal Cordillera belt, which is already home to several large producers. Plans are underway to study the characteristics of both discoveries, and to explore the newly discovered zones near Falla 13 and the Cototuda corridor, alongside numerous other unexplored targets.

Very exciting times for the Torq team.
