Expert says: buy resource stocks when everyone else hates them

15 July, 2022

In today’s Exponential Investor

  • Rick owes me a cocktail
  • The commodities bull market has already started – it is just taking a hiatus
  • Waiting for stocks to be cheap pays off
  • What’s the one thing about commodity investing Rick wants you to know?

“You owe me a cocktail,” is, perhaps, not the first thing you say to a commodities investing legend. Yet I’ve never been one to miss a free drink.

I’m fortunate that today’s guest has a good sense of humour and remembered his promise from 2020.

Rick Rule has made a name for himself over the past four decades investing in junior resource companies when they are most despised.

He’s not interested in resources in the hype cycle: rather he looks for stocks that have great management and a great prospect. It is even better when the companies are focusing on a commodity generally unloved by the market.

In today’s Exponential Investor podcast, Rick and I talk about the energy crisis gripping Europe, why multi decades of underinvestment will see a multi-decade commodity bull market, the four books every investor should read and… exactly how I can claim my free drink.
