Summer means a lot of things for today's savvy investor. It can mean it's time to pack up and head to the woods with your family. It could also mean its just time to go all cash, especially with the recent Brexit fiasco. I tend to look at Brexit like I did when Greece looked like it was gonna collapse the first, second and third time. I just figured, who cares? I know I didn't care what happened around the world in a country smaller than British Columbia. I am sure there are some jeers from analysts who may paint me as naive but the truth is I am always set to weather the storm and pick my stocks accordingly.
I tend to have a few solid investments in Oil & Gas, Gold and then Tech or Medical. The first one I drop is Oil & Gas since it seems so heavily manipulated and lets face it electric transportation is here to stay. Gold is my constant and oddly enough I rarely find a loser in Tech or Medical(Health Care) because I do my homework and only pick those companies on the cutting edge of the hottest trends. Anyone can pick a junior gold and make money when it bounces off the bottom, even if its just a shell. Oil & Gas I only jump in when the chart looks set and other have been driving the market. This usually means I don't stay that long, and constantly have my finger on the trigger.
This summer while some guys are liquidating assets and ordering the new camper or speed boat I am sifting through the markets looking for that next gem that has been overlooked by the markets. Maybe some traders did spot these ones but thought they would have plenty of time to get in after the kids are back in school in September. The opportunity will probably still be there but guys like me might make the move now, rather than risk paying a 50% premium later.
March 7, 2016 Oceanus' initial work program at the El Tigre property entailed the collection of 1,430 samples to fill in the "gaps" in the legacy drill hole assay database to ensure the entire mineralized zones were sampled from the hanging wall to footwall. The new assay results received to date indicate that the mineralized zone at El Tigre approaches true widths of 100 meters. The veins at the El Tigre Property dip steeply to the west. The veins, structures and mineralized zones outcrop on surface and have been traced for a distance of 5.3 kilometers along strike.
After Oceanus included the new assay results for the legacy diamond drill holes, the mineralized intercept for select holes are as follows: March 7 New Release
May 16, 2016 new assays from 531 drill core samples collected from 16 drill holes as well as 60 channel samples collected underground in the Johnny Cross Cut located on Section 4000N. The drill holes are located on Sections 4400N, 4350N, 4300N, 4100N, 4050N and 4000N. The goals of the sampling program are to "twin" several of the high grade intersections identified by the original sampling conducted by El Tigre Silver Corp. in 2013 and to assay sections of the core not previously sampled to provide complete assay coverage over the length of the holes.
These assay results indicate a broader halo of gold and silver mineralization than was previously recognized. This wide zone of gold and silver mineralization, which starts at surface, may have future potential for open pit bulk mining. After Oceanus included the new assay results for the legacy diamond drill holes, the mineralized intercept for select holes are reported as follows: May 16 New Release
Two weeks after the May 16th result were public they announced a bought deal. This was the third event that popped up on my radar. Money is not easy to solicit in a market driven by fear and the numbers in the field have left a lot of speculation that there is gold there in bulk tonnage that makes this a good bet going forward.
(June 1, 2016) - Oceanus Resources Corporation ("Oceanus" or the "Company") (TSXV:OCN) is pleased to announce that it has entered into an agreement with Cantor Fitzgerald Canada Corporation and PI Financial Corporation as co-lead agents, pursuant to which they have agreed to purchase, on a bought deal basis, 21,739,130 units of the Company (the "Units") at a price of $0.23 per Unit, for gross proceeds to the Company of approximately $5,000,000 (the "Offering").
The second company I like this summer is Eguana Technologies EGT.V
Although Eguana has had a nice strong move in the markets, I think this is just the tip of the iceberg as far as growth for this company. Eguana management have been forging long term relationships in the hottest sector on the market. Tesla put the spotlight on the economic win-fall of investing in solar but Eguana arrived at the party with the best in its class technology that may put it in the sights of some of the big boys this summer. I have watched solar companies go from pennies to dollars based on MOU's and LOI's that may one day pan out. This shows you the level of enthusiasm for the sector. Now Eguana is arriving on the scene and inking deals without big promises. In fact this may be the most low key CEO I have ever seen on any stock exchange. If this guy starts talking blue sky as far as where this can go in the next 3 years most investors may not be able to wrap their head around what he just said. Recently Hawaii and Australia have made firm commitments to using Eguana as the demand for clean energy is at an all time high. The beauty of using home solar now is that you can feed excess back to the grid and get paid to off-set your cost for the equipment. Some analysts say the money is not necessarily in the auto aspect of solar as it is the home storage sector. It may be decades before we all have an electric car, but we all have a home that could use solar now. With a combination of rooftop solar panels, smart thermostats, advanced water heaters and other high-efficiency features, the homes are all built with a similar goal: to make at least as much energy as they use over a year. A Suburban Experiment Aims for Free Energy Eguana recently announced a deal with a major automotive subsidiary.
LG Chem and Eguana will work together to deliver a certified and fully integrated energy storage system called “AC Battery”.
