Dear Readers and fellow Investors,
altough we`re already well into 2013, with this update we`re pleased to present our 2013 portfolio.
The Royalty space remains the hottest and most promising place for Mining-Investors. Companies like Franco-Nevada, Royal Gold, Silver Wheaton, Labrador Iron Ore Royalty Corp or Sandstorm Gold continue to outperf0rm and yield substancial returns to it`s Investors, but they are far from beeing cheap.
We have put together a portfolio of only 4 Stocks, that we believe offer the best risk/reward and lowest foreward-looking Royalty Cash-Flow/Price multiple.
We believe, with this portfolio, you will not only do well in 2013, but it holds the potential to be a retirement account. For those who are already holding FNV/RGL/SLW or SSL these 4 stocks might offer an interesting opportunity to diversify further into the Royalty Sector.
For a proforma amount of just about 800 million (combined marketcaps of all 4 stocks) you buy into possible 200+ million per annum Royalty cash flow by 2017.
and you get all the cash and all other assets also owned by the individual companies for free, like the whole Altius JV portfolio, Sabinas 6mm + high grade Gold resource or Golden Predators Yukon Projects.
We wouldn`t be suprised if some or maybe even all 4 Companies see takeover offers from the above mentioned Majors in the not to distant future.
Metrics & Comparables:
before you have a look at our portfolio, keep in mind that:
A) Franco-Nevada T.FNV, without any doubht the most succesfull and largest Royalty Company payed 1 Billion $ on this stream deal with Inmet on it`s Cobre Panama project. http://ir.inmetmining.com/press-releases/franco-nevada-and-inmet-agree-to-a-1-billion-prec-tsx-imn-201208200813206001
So basically they payed 1 Billion for an avarage 120million Royalty Revenue per annum over a 30 year mine life.
B) Silver Wheathon payed 750million for a Metals Stream with HudBay Minerals
Other than a NSR or GSR these streams do have ongoing payments. This of ourse means, free cash flow relative to royalty revenue is much lower than for our portfolios Royalties.
THE PORTFOLIO: Outstanding Revenue Growth:
We are buying:
T.GPD – Gold Bullion Royalty Corp @ 0.355$
T.ALS – Altius Minerals Corp. @ 12.66$
T.SBB -Sabina Gold&Silver Corp @ 2.22$
V.ASE Asante Gold Corp @ 0.275$
*Please note: The Obotan NSR is subjected to the pending closing of the aquisition by Asante.
From our Database with over 200 Royalty-Interests, we found the combination of these four presenting the most attractive opportunity. Even if 50% of the underlying project would fail, which is given the Operators experience and capital strength highly unlikely, this portfolio would still be undervalued compared to recent transactions and market valuations of Royalty-Majors.
All 4 Stocks fullfill all our major Investment criteria: (those are important for all Mining-Investments, not only Royalties)
- proven management
- low debt/high cash level
- low country risk
- high management ownership
