Bill Shaw over at Stansberry Research has been teasing what he calls his "#1 gold stock", and he thinks this investment opportunity could make investors filthy rich, more specifically stating that it has "potential to turn every $1,000 invested into a small fortune".
Sounds good, but is it legit? And what is the stock he's teasing?
Luckily for you, I'll be exposing his stock pick in this short review, which you normally would have to pay for.
Here's what I came across, but there might be other variations of it... titled the "#1 Gold Stock for a Bear Market"...
Bill Shaw is the guy behind it all. He comes from a background in land development management and managing portfolios of land assets of up to $100 million. Nowadays he works for Stansberry Research where he runs investment newsletter services specifically focused on investing in commodities and gold.
There have been a lot of people teasing gold investment opportunties these days. We just exposed the Outsider Club's "Tier 2 Gold" stocks as well as Adam O'Dell's "A9 Gold" teaser, so this sort of thing is nothing new.
Billionaires are investing massive fortunes in the metal and there are many people who are very bullish, some of the higher predictions being that gold will hit as much as $10k an ounce in the near future.
But anyways, Bill Shaw tells us that he is going to show us "one of the world’s most profitable and lowest-risk investments".
This opportunity is said to be "virtually unknown" - definitely not true - and he claims we can get in on it for just $7.
Not only that, but some of the more hyped-up claims that come from the teaser include that:
- it has "the potential to turn every $1,000 invested into a small fortune over the next few months"
- it could "potentially turn every $100 into $32,947"
- it's "by far the best way to invest in gold"
He's teasing just one stock here.
Investing in just one stock is what he claims could make you filthy rich.
How do you find out what the stock is that he's teasing? Well, as normal... you're going to have to take out your credit card.
The sales pitch:
Bill Shaw is giving out what he considers to be a "free" report that goes over all the details on the one company he's teasing.
It's titled The #1 Gold Stock to Buy in 2020...
However, I don't consider this report to be "free", because in order to get your hands on it you will have to purchase a subscription to the Commodity Supercycles newsletter that he runs, which is discounted to $49 for the first year.
It's All About Gold Royalties
The investment opportunity here is to invest in gold royalty companies, which you already know if you were able to sit through the entire, agonizingly long, presentation.
Gold royalties are contracts between an investor (royalty company) and a mining company where the investor is guaranteed a certain percentage of the mine's revenue throughout the entire life of the mine. Mining companies are willing to give away royalties like this for cash investment upfront.
Here's a good explanation that sums up the basics of gold royalties nicely:
This type of gold investment opportunity, as was mentioned, was pioneered by a Canadian named Pierre Lassonde.
And when Bill Shaw mentioned that this opportunity could "potentially turn every $100 into $32,947", he was referring to the gold royalty company that Pierre Lassonade founded decades ago. Investing in this gold royalty company, Franco-Nevada, at one time could have turned $100 into $32,947, and the whole point of this teaser is that he thinks an opportunity like this is at our feet once again.
As stated, "Right now, a perfect storm is approaching. Over the next few years, we could see the biggest precious metals bull market in history."
How do you get in on this opportunity?
Well, as we know, Bill Shaw is teasing his "#1 gold stock", which is a gold royaltly company stock of course.
What Is Bill Shaw's "#1 Gold Stock"?
So, what is the stock that could "potentially turn every $100 into $32,947"?
What is the stock that could lead to you cruising around on a private yacht at this time next year?
Well, the clues that were given include that:
- It's a "tiny gold royalty firm"
- It has "fewer than 20 employees with almost no overhead"
- It "trades for less than $7 per share"
And that's really all we know based on what he tells us.
However, this might be enough.
Normally it wouldn't be, but this opportunity was actually teased in the past. It is basically a re-hashed version of an old teaser, in which Bill Shaw was teasing his "The #1 Gold Stock to Buy in 2019".
It seems that his "#1 gold stock" might not have changed.
In 2019 he was recommending Sandstorm Gold (SAND), and although the number he gives us are a bit off (the company has just over 20 employees and the stock price is now above $7), it seems like a likely pick.
It's not really a "tiny firm", but terms like this are always being misused with misleading investment teasers.
Good Opportunity or Bust?
If Sandstorm Gold (SAND) is the pick he's teasing here, which seems very likely, then it seems like it could be a solid recommendation.
*Note: The gold royalties video I posted above is actually made by the CEO of Sandstorm Gold.
Sandstorm has a strong portfolio of gold royalties and a very good management team. Plus, the company is established and still pretty small.
With the possibility of gold soaring in price, this could be a nice portfolio addition.
That said, it should also be mentioned that companies like Zacks give Sandstorm a low rating for value investors, suggesting it's overvalued.
And certainly don't expect to turn every $100 into $30k+. You'd just be setting yourself up for disappointment.
