M&A activity in the gold sector has been hot, hot, hot this month.
Since March 10th we’ve seen three major acquisitions of junior mining companies – which is not surprising when you consider that gold stocks have been underperforming of late. Gold producers that are sitting on a lot of cash have been able to capitalize on discounted prices, and with interest rates being so low, there’s also a lot of cheap money available to finance these kinds of M&A transactions.
Despite a shaky chart over the last few months, we remain bullish on gold in the long-term. We think there’ll be a lot more M&A deals happening in the sector in the coming months, especially acquisitions of juniors that are in possession of high quality deposits that are in production or near production.
Let’s take a look at what’s happened this month.
The stock market game is not for everyone and certainly not for the uninformed. However, someone with the right strategies and research skills can create wealth even in chaotic times. Some of the wealthiest investors have made their fortune trading in volatile micro-cap stocks.

Despite its reputation, gold hasn’t really been the safe haven when things have gotten really ugly in the past.
In 2008, before starting a three-year bull run, gold dropped 30% in the panic sell-off.
Dear Fellow Retail Investor,
I once had an online business that sold holistic health information.
And over the 13 years I ran it, monthly income grew from $0 to about $3,000.
Not a fortune… but it was a hobby business I enjoyed (and I didn’t mind the extra money).
All that changed in 2012.
That’s when Google unleashed its Penguin algorithm.

On July 26, 2018 I bought some shares of a small Canadian biotech company at CAD $1.08 – of course, the price started to fall immediately after I bought it. Not a huge deal, I reassured myself as I watched the share price slide, and my money disappear right along with it. Ugh.
