Top 10 Stocks To Invest In Right Now


Peter Krauth

In my last update, I talked about gold’s reaction to the Fed rate hike. The rate hike (though nearly unanimously expected) caused the dollar to rally, thereby weighing on gold.

That led to even further negative sentiment, pulling gold down a further $30 per ounce from $1,160 to the $1,130 range. The price of gold today is up slightly 0.27%, but it is still trading near $1,132.

In the past week, gold prices tested the $1,126 to $1,129 range at least five times and bounced back each time.


It’s very possible that sentiment has now become sufficiently negative. Many who bought in at the summer highs have either become distraught or have already sold.

Top 10 Stocks To Invest In Right Now: Natural Gas(NG)

    When an investor thinks of Canadian gold mining stocks, NovaGold Resources Inc. (USA) (NYSEMKT:NG) and Yamana Gold Inc. (USA) (NYSE:AUY) are often the first names to come to mind. And well they should. Yamana Gold is a $2.5 billion giant, and NovaGold Resources seems to have been around forever.


    Those two icons aren’t the only way to tap into Canada’s sizeable gold mining industry though. There’s a small, up-and-coming player called Taranis Resources Inc. (OTCMKTS:TNREF, TSX:TRO) that could end up becoming another key fixture of the country’s mining landscape.

    Taranis develops mineral deposits into mine-ready projects. Its primary project right now — and it’s enough to keep the company plenty busy for the next several years — is the Thor property located near Trout Lake, British Columbia. NI 43-101 resource reports (indicated and inferred)suggest Thor contains 6.9 million ounces of silver, 35,000 ounces gold, 57 million pounds of lead, 79.4 million pounds of zinc and 3.3 Million pounds of copper (roughly a 14 million ounce silver equivalent (“AgEq”) deposit*) laying in wait in a way that lends itself to the establishment of a low-cost, open pit mining operation. That’s roughly $300 million worth of marketable metals, and the estimates have been steadily getting bigger as Tanaris does more survey work.


    And 2017 could be a real breakout year for Taranis, as a lot of the work that’s been done to date starts to mean something. It’s got big exploration plans for this year… this spring/summer to be exact.

    The Phase 1 program was completed in September of last year, setting the stage for a more defined and much bigger Phase 2 definition-drilling within the next several weeks. This Phase 2 definition drilling slated for the middle of this year will drill down to between 6000 m and 10,000 m.
