…Even in these challenging times there have been many great winners in the natural resource sector. I have been fortunate, lucky or smart to have racked up some nice gains through the years. I have been consistently picking winners, big winners, monster winners for years – a string of 10 years of 500% plus winners and more, sometimes much more, year after year – …[so] my message to you is simple: follow me! Your only question should be “Which of my current positions will be the next big winners?” Words: 804; Table: 1

Baker goes on to say in further edited comments:
“…Until recently I [had] not taken [the] time to schedule out for you my top investment gains. Below are my actual numbers and top returns from 2003 through 2012 which…[were] taken directly from my U.S. Federal Tax Returns for 2002 through 2012.
While I had a gut feeling…[that I had] some investment successes through the years [it was not] until I saw the final schedule below that I realized that, “hey, I am doing great here”. I have been consistently picking winners, big winners, monster winners for years – a string of 10 years of 500% plus winners [27 in total] and more [4 up over 1,000%], sometimes much more [1 up 2,158.1%], year after year.

[While] I have had my share of losers, (…picking resource shares…is a challenge and I would guess that for every 10 picks 2 or 3 will be net losers) that’s the nature of investing in the natural resource sector – everyone has – but on balance I am ahead, way ahead, from investing in this volatile and speculative sector.
It is difficult for me to assess the overall performance in my portfolio, as I, probably like you, add more funds from time to time to my brokerage accounts or withdraw some funds, so it can be virtually impossible for me to tell you exactly how I have done on a percentage basis each year. [That being said,] what I can tell you is that:
- since the beginning of the bull market in gold in 2001 my investment account balances have increased approximately 4,650% as of February 1, 2013… [Incidentally, that works out to a 42% cumulative rate of return.]
- the results of my overall performance would have been 7,400% if I had presented my performance results in January 2011 as we are basically now at the lowest prices for resource shares as measured by the HUI and XAU indices…[and] my portfolio was over 50% higher in value back then.
As I have said above, I’ve had losses, sometimes…hundreds of thousands of dollars, because I listened to the advice of someone else or another newsletter [regarding] hedging positions, selling short, put options, call options etc. which, admittedly, are not my expertise….However, when I stick to what I do best, picking the best opportunities available in the resource sector which have the potential for 500% to 1,000% gains, I do well, really well….I have been successful because of my money management skills and overall stock selections where my winners greatly outperform ny losing positions.
The ultimate objective for me and all investors is to finish the race as big net winners. I have accomplished this and frankly, I believe the big gains are still in front of us. Folks, my message for you is simple: follow me! Your only question should be which of my current positions will be the next big winners.”

Investors are always looking for ways to maximize their gains and warrants, options and LEAPS are a good way to do just that. These investment vehicles are very similar to each other except for issue of time. [Let me explain.] Words: 752
GDX is currently at approx. 42 but should it drop below the 39 & 40 levels reached last May and July our analysis shows that a good deal of sellers could come forward and push GDX a large percentage lower. That double bottom needs to hold in GDX!!! Take a look at the chart below and you will clearly see why that is the case.
The timing of this article may seem incongruous given the current weak performance of gold and gold stocks but that was the identical situation in each of the past manias – both the metal and the equities didn’t excel until the frenzy kicked in. The following documentation (exact returns from specific companies during this era are identified) is actually a fresh reminder of why we think you should hold on to your positions – or start accumulating them, if you haven’t already.

Seeing the S&P 500 outperform gold and seeing gold stocks get decimated…has been enough to create suicidal sentiment…in the precious metals (PM) sector…but, as the many calls for an end of the PM bull market…[are expressed,] the risk in the PM sector gets lower and lower. The bigger picture hasn’t changed and isn’t going to for some time [so] keep the faith and hold onto your PM sector items tight. Don’t let the short and intermediate-term noise distract you from what STILL promises to be a secular bull market for the history books. The Dow to Gold ratio will hit 2 and might even go below 1 this cycle. [Let me explain.] Words: 873
President Obama will be sworn into office for a second term on January 21 and that’s good news if you own gold stocks. Why? Because gold stocks, [as represented by the XAU] have increased, on average, by 20% during inaugural years since 1985 (28% in 2005; 36% in 2003). While there’s no real rhyme or reason as to why gold stocks thrive in inauguration years – statistical anomaly or otherwise – it is yet another reason to buy gold stocks right now.

The mining stocks have been a disaster if you’ve invested in the average fund, GDX or GDXJ and if you’ve invested in the wrong stocks, they’ve been a total disaster and you will now hate the sector forever. We’ve certainly been surprised by this protracted struggle. In my articles you’ve heard me talk about accumulating on weakness, buying support, being patient and waiting for better opportunities. Folks, this next week is one of those opportunities. The gold stocks are setting up similarly to the bottom in 2005 [and, as such,] are set to test a major bottom and could be on the cusp of a major reversal. Let me explain. Words: 438; Charts: 3
The prospects look great for Gold and Silver to move sharply higher into 2013 to mimic the moves made in the 2005/ 2006 period and especially in 1979. In both cases back then the PM Stock Indices made big runs along with Gold and Silver. As such, the current HUI looks good for a major bottom to now be in place and to mimic the PM Stock Surrogate chart from the late 70’s. This would see the HUI go as high as the 1000 area in 2013. Let me explain further. Words: 640
For the past eighteen months, gold stocks have been pummeled…What’s going to move these darn stocks? Will their day ever come? Could our research – gulp – be wrong? Jokes have even started circulating…[such as] a) What’s the difference between a seagull and a gold stock investor? The seagull can still make a deposit on a Mercedes. b) Gold equities may be bad, but I slept like a baby last night. I woke up every hour and cried. Laugh or cry, however, underneath this heap of stock-certificate debris is the contrarian opportunity of a lifetime. That’s a strong statement, I know, but below I present numerous well-researched reasons why I’m convinced gold stocks are one spark away from igniting the portfolios of those with the cash to buy, courage to act, and patience to hold.
