The Maven Letter- Gwen Preston: This remains my flagship weekly newsletter, in which I write about what I am buying, selling, seeing, and thinking about in the metals and mining space. My interest and expertise is undoubtedly in the junior side of the sector and so The Maven Letter covers the stocks I own from pre-discovery explorers to mine builders.
Maven Premium- Gwen Preston: For accredited investors, financings are a good way to invest in this sector. But finding the best financings requires knowledge; getting allocation in them requires a network. I use my knowledge and network to secure enough space in financings in which I am investing that Premium subscribers can invest alongside if they so choose.
Silver Stock Investor- Peter Krauth: This letter is Peter’s key contribution to the Maven world and it is a welcome one. Silver is a world unto itself, with its own equity metrics, macro forces, and dedicated investors. Silver also usually outperforms gold in a bull market. For all of those reasons, silver deserves its own newsletter – and until SSI no such newsletter existed! Peter covers the whole silver spectrum, from physical to major miners to junior explorers.
Gold Resource Investor- Peter Krauth: Peter also took over Maven Metals and rebranded it Gold Resource Investor. This letter covers the senior end of the mining space: miners, royalty companies, optionality plays, and new operators. The intent is to help investors who want to play the coming metals bull market but (1) don’t have deep sector knowledge, (2) are not interested in high-risk stocks, and (3) don’t want to engage with their mining portfolio all that often. It is ALSO a good read for higher-risk investors as a reminder of the benefits of lower-risk stocks in a portfolio.
In her letter, Resource Maven explains what she is buying and selling, and why. Maven has bought into several of the markets best - performing stocks well ahead of the curve. She regularly identifies exciting new exploration opportunities and manages the inherent risk by selling some into speculative gains. And the mine builder and operator stocks that form the basis of the portfolio give strong, ongoing leverage to the rising prices of gold and silver. She has your precious metal bases covered.
What distinguishes you from the rest is candor and honesty. You have a genuine concern for your subscribers that exceeds the other publishers I know. IMO that's more important than geological knowledge or even performance.
"Gwen - I just analyzed our returns for the past month. We had a 36.7% return on our portfolio in one month! Thank you so much for your excellent, thoughtful and timely guidance. 12 of the 18 stocks in my portfolio were recommended by you. 4 were recommended by other MIF letter writers and 1 each by Eric Sprott and Rick Rule. Yes it was a good month for precious metals - Gold was up $50 and Silver $3.90 - but “our" portfolio performance more than doubled the 16% of the GDXJ"
