Gold and Silver Stock Picks for Coming Bull Market

Junior gold stocks have endured a difficult bear market, but Claude Bejet of Swiss Gold Letter sees better times ahead.

Speaking at the Prospectors & Developers Association of Canada (PDAC) convention, he said a turnaround began late last October and was confirmed on November 4, when the VanEck Gold Miners ETF (ARCA:GDX) saw an 11 percent increase.

“The index was not up 3 percent, 4 percent — it was up a huge 11 percent,” Bejet said. “My experience in markets … is bull markets start with a bang, and a bang we had. So I think we’re in for a lot of better markets and great profit opportunities.”

He prefers to invest in gold exploration companies, but said that large companies are selling at low prices right now.

“One of my big themes today is that after this big bear market you can buy quality companies — companies with production growth — at a discount,” Bejet explained. Those include stocks like Ross Beaty’s Equinox Gold (TSX:EQX,NYSEAMERICAN:EQX) and Aris Mining (TSX:ARIS,OTCQX:TPRFF), whose board of directors includes Frank Giustra.

Bejet also suggested looking at possible takeover targets, mentioning Condor Gold (TSX:COG,LSE:CNR,OTC Pink:CNDGF) and Treasury Metals (TSX:TML,OTCQX:TSRMF) as companies that will potentially be snapped up.

On the silver side, he pointed to Keith Neumeyer’s First Majestic Silver (TSX:FR,NYSE:AG), as well as Guanajuato Silver (TSXV:GSVR,OTCQX:GSVRF) and Avino Silver & Gold Mines (TSX:ASM,NYSEAMERICAN:ASM). Bejet also mentioned Aurion Resources (TSXV:AU,OTCQX:AIRRF) as a more speculative precious metals play to consider.
