Author Bio

Myron Martin
Travis has asked me to write a monthly column with comments on the markets and stock picks from my broad database that now approaches 400 stocks with investment tips I have learned as a well-seasoned investor in a broad range of markets. I have 15 sector-specific personal portfolios such as base and precious metals, energy, (from oil/gas to uranium, wind/solar and more), agricultural/fertilizer, coal/iron ore, lithium, graphite, rare earths, and critical and specialty metals (a very lucrative but neglected sector), in short, mostly commodities, but I also have a keen interest in new technologies and emerging markets. Another thing you might want to know about me is that I have been an avid organic gardener for over 50 years. Myron Martin is a paid contributor to Stock Gumshoe, he has agreed to our trading restrictions but he chooses his own topics and his words and opinions are his own.

  • Thoughts from Myron—Drill Baby Drill

    In my life-long studies of the Federal Reserve I have been collecting historical quotes that only become more relevant as each year passes. Certainly this one should be on every investor’s list of quotes that are foundational to understanding how our economic and financial system actually operates. Observed Reginald McKenna, President of the Midlands Bank […]

    On 2017 No Brainer TRUMP Presidency Pick
    It was about time for an update on Select Sands. Given all the negative initial reactions I neglected to follow through with all the good news in a timely fashion. There was an article covered by SIMMONS @ Company about the frac sand industry and they had[...]
    On Small Arbitrage Transaction in some Mining Stocks
    Sounds like you are not familiar with the junior mining space where most of your money is made on new discoveries and then as resources are developed, on buyouts by larger companies with the capital to actually finance the mine construction, that is just h[...]

    On Small Arbitrage Transaction in some Mining Stocks
    Was looking at Luna Gold last few days because it popped up on my ALERTS as in play, and I understand WHY Travis decided to take a small flyer on it given the connections with people and stocks he is familiar with, I frequently do the same when I have conf[...]
    On What's the "Pure Carbon" teased by Resource Stock Digest Premium?
    Thanks for making my case on the merits of being early to the party. BUYING RIGHT is the first priority, having patience is probably the second. It takes time and money to develop any resource to its full potential and in the mining business the most money[...]
    On What's the "Pure Carbon" teased by Resource Stock Digest Premium?
    Not necessarily so, Europe needs rare earths just as badly as other advanced economies and a local source could certainly have preference over depending on China.[...]
    On What's the "Pure Carbon" teased by Resource Stock Digest Premium?
    You can never go wrong taking a decent profit, but you do limit your upside if you always cash out at any market dip. When you have the courage of your convictions based on thorough analysis of previous management history, the quality and potential of reso[...]
    On What's the "Pure Carbon" teased by Resource Stock Digest Premium?
    THANKS: I always do my homework, very little goes on in the junior mining space I don't know about, I just don't write about many of the stocks I buy until they mature because of the antipathy many investors have towards start-ups. For those interested I a[...]
    On "God's Gold" at less than $9 a share teased by Jim Rickards
    As Travis has repeatedly pointed out, it pays to be somewhat skeptical of newsletter writers claims because they are often exaggerated, but on the other end of that spectrum is excessive cynicism where people fail to do due diligence to sort fact from fict[...]
    On Friday File -- Last of the year
    I owned Northern Dynasty many years ago in its early exploration stage but after earning some decent profits on it I sold it because of the permitting and financing delays. While it is true that a Trump presidency has a strong potential to change the dyna[...]

    On Examining Retirement Revival's "Is This Junior Mining Company Your Next 10-Bagger?"
