Why Rare Metals? Why Now?
Over the course of human history, rare metals, such as gold and silver, have been widely recognized as stores of value for building and maintaining wealth. While bouts of rampant inflation sent many paper currencies – such as the Soviet ruble or the American Continental – into the annals of history, rare metals have managed to maintain their value in the eyes of mankind. It’s amazing to think that over the past 100 years, nearly all consumer goods have become more expensive in terms of paper currency, but cheaper in terms of gold.
Today, central banks all over the globe are pursuing policies of quantitative easing (QE) in efforts to reinvigorate their faltering economic recoveries. Furthermore, government fiscal authorities now find themselves in the predicament of having to essentially devalue their currencies in order to inflate away the national debt. The flood of liquidity will inevitably result in inflation, which is likely to push up prices of rare and precious metals in coming months.
Gold performs the best during times of currency debasement. This is a real concern today, as governments around the world continue to spend a lot of money and print more in an effort to avoid deflation. The longer-term and more serious risk of QE is that it could undermine the entire paper money system. If holders of government debt lose confidence in the nation’s ability to repay its obligations or become convinced that the central bank is planning to monetize its debt and devalue the currency, these holders will demand higher interest rates to hold these government bonds. Such a development would increase long-term interest rates and precipitate a collapse in the value of papery currency.
However, rare metals aren’t just inflation hedges anymore. In today’s integrated, high-tech world, rare metals can be found in some of the most important products that we use on a daily basis. Handheld devices, batteries, televisions, computers and many more products rely on the unique chemical properties of rare metals – properties that cannot be found in some of the more abundant base metals.

Rare Metals Play #1: Gonzo for Gold
We picked our best gold stocks for their strong management teams, ability to execute on their goals, and rising production.
Rare Metals Play #1 is a unique company that has substantial levels of free-cash flow and exceptionally low cost of capital requirements. The company is one Australia’s leading producers and operates mostly in Western Australia. It also has very promising projects in New Guinea, New South Wales, Ivory Coast and Indonesia that are expected to add considerable volume to future output.
This top gold producer is targeting gold production growth of between 35 percent and 55 percent over the next four years and copper output growth of 20 percent to 30 percent. The company is aiming to increase gold production by more than 1 million ounces, setting a 2017 target of between 3.1 million and 3.5 million ounces.
Rare Metals Play #1 continues to generate substantial levels of free-cash flow, providing internal funds for mining even as its cost of capital remains low. The stock is attractively priced at a discount to its North American and it’s possible that the company could deliver an upside surprise given the opportunities for expanding production.
Rare Metals Play #2: Long on Lithium
Mobile phones, laptops, tablet computers and hybrid vehicles all require a way to effectively store power and the method of choice is the lithium-ion battery. Rare metals play #2 focuses on the insatiable global demand for lithium. Given the robust growth in demand and the complexity of bringing new cost-effective mines on-stream, there’s considerable upside potential for lithium prices for the next few years and our pick will benefit from this trend as the company has the infrastructure in place to produce large amounts of lithium in a cost-effective way.
Rare Metals Play #3: Platinum Group Metals (PGM) – Rarer than Gold!
The Great Recession may have put a damper on auto sales and discretionary spending in the US and Europe, but strong growth in China has maintained – even increased – demand for platinum and Platinum Group Metals (PGMs). That’s why we’ve included a leading PGM miner as our rare metals play #3. This company is poised to ramp up output to roughly 700,000 ounces of PGMs over the next four years, an increase of nearly 40%.
Precious Metals ETF: Special Bonus Pick
In addition to our top rare metals stock picks, your free special report also includes one of our favorite sector plays through a Precious Metals ETF. This precious metals ETF is the best way to protect yourself from uncertainty and inflation. Unlike miners, which don’t always go up with metal prices, our top precious metals ETF has accumulated tons of precious bullion, meaning that it is the best and easiest way to play rising metals prices. And, this precious metals ETF has a special advantage that prevents competitors from entering their market.
Because there is no real substitute for rare and precious metals, demand for these metals is expected to grow impressively in the next decade. What compounds the investment case for rare metals is the fact that supply of these metals will remain restricted due to their rare occurrences, high production costs and importance to national security. This could mean big profits to savvy investors armed with the right tools and knowledge of the market.
