Oh boy, what a terrible week for gold mining stocks! When it rains it pours, as they so often say. Fortunately, as a buyer, these down weeks provide some of the best opportunities that we have to add to our positions. By no means do I think

Portfolio Update: Building My Positions (October 29, 2015)

Picture5_0

As a motivated buyer, you’ve got to love down days like today. I used the big drop to add to my positions. I’ve been making a lot of purchases as of late, but I don’t anticipate this surge of activity to continue for much longer. Actually, as we head towards the end of the year, my main focus will again shift back towards building up my cash positions.

I gotta say, I’m thankful for my income and passive income streams (from all 8 rental properties), which are making all of this speculation possible. I realize that I’ve

Mining All-Star Lineup: My $100,000 Lottery Ticket(s)

house - 1

Ever played the lottery and had high hopes of winning it big? I’ll confess, I have… More so when I was a little kid, but even most recently (September 2013), I’ll admit to having purchased a few lottery tickets.

What can I say? These days, I’ve got gold on my mind… But it’s not that I’ve been seduced by the intoxicatingly beautiful yellow metal (although I will confess that physical gold bullion is quite alluring to marvel at). No, rather, my fascination with gold quite literally

I’ve made a few new transactions over these past few months, so I thought I would give readers an update on the overall status of my portfolio.

For starters, I’m still holding majority cash, as I continue to make a conscious effort to boost up the reserves as much as I possibly can on any given month. In my mind, I still believe that

Seeing the BIG Picture

From the inception of this blog up until now, my primary focus has been on reaching early financial independence. When I first started out on the journey, I thought it would be an ambitious goal to get to the top of the early FI mountain by age 37.5, so I set that as my

The markets have been rallying as of late, and many stocks have been able to enjoy basking in the GREEN. As it pertains to gold mining stocks, they have also been surging, which comes as somewhat of a surprise given their recent history of dismal performance.

But if I’ve learned anything with this sector, it’s
