My apologies for not getting this out to you yesterday! My sweet little Kung Fu Kid burned her hand last night on the stove (she is fine luckily!) while with Kung Fu Guy (I was on my way home from the conference) so I returned home to chaos and much need for Mama love and simply couldn’t get this out to you yesterday.
Hopefully you’ll find it worth the wait, though…I have a special surprise for you at the bottom!
Sunday was Day One of the San Francisco Hard Assets conference, and your boots-on-the-ground reporter (me) soaked up as much information as I could for you.
This is a 2-day FREE conference (which means it’s a pitch-fest, but a fun one and a good one), and there is a third day for “Accredited Investors” only focused on rare earths, which I am attending today.
Some initial observations:
Which brings me to the meat of today’s missive, and boy do I have a special treat for you…
I recorded Rick Rule’s keynote speech and received his permission and that of Sprott Corporate to share it with you here on Kung Fu Finance!
When Rick has something to say, I listen….the man is brilliant and has a terrific way of explaining complex topics in an understandable (and highly entertaining) way. He spoke for 45 minutes on good news/bad news, what to expect in the coming months and years (hint: rhymes with “STIX”), and how to earn income on your investments even when the markets are gyrating wildly.
Rick is not the most “PC” guy on the planet so if you have delicate sensibilities I hope you won’t be offended, but he is hilarious, entertaining, and an extremely savvy investor. Did I mention he is a billionaire…? Give it a listen! (Rick starts at about the 2 minute mark after the long-winded introduction):
Sprott Global now has over $8 Billion under management, and you can find out more about Global Resource Investments, Rick Rule, and Sprott Global here…
(I am completely unaffiliated—I just think Rick is a really smart guy)
Back tomorrow with more insights!
To your financial success,
