The first few months of this year gave a little taste of what’s to come for the junior precious metals miners, if this is indeed the start of a new gold/silver bull market. Some sample charts:
[…] There were dozens more like this, obscure little miners that soared when investors concluded that maybe they weren’t going bankrupt after all. Most have corrected a bit this month, but that just sets the stage for the next, much longer and steeper run once gold and silver resume their upward march.
But while it’s true that this kind of rising tide will lift all boats for a while, the biggest winners will be the best companies, which brings us to the eternal junior miner question: How do you tell the 40-baggers from the bankruptcy candidates when they’re all going up?
