Erik Wetterling, Founder of The Hedgeless Horseman, joins us for a discussion on why he has increased the number of positions within his portfolio, and why he has become and asset hoarder of precious metals stocks. We review the unique opportunity currently available in the depressed valuations seen across the junior mining sector, and the ability to have great risk/reward upside potential and yet still simultaneously have diversification of companies and jurisdictions.
Erik shares how he approaches the position sizing and weightings of different companies within his portfolio. He outlines that his largest positions also have the biggest margin of safety as developers with known resources in the ground, then the medium sized positions are explorers that have made a discovery and are expanding upon it, and finally the smallest positions are in the true grassroots drill plays hoping to make a new discovery.
We wrap up with getting some examples of each category or stage of stock in Erik’s portfolio and why he likes Cabral Gold (TSX.V: CBR), Inflection Resources (CSE: AUCU), and Pacific Ridge Exploration (TSX.V: PEX).
