Coin dealers say they had great bourse sales

Both candidates for president of the American Numismatic Association had tables on the bourse floor of the Florida United Numismatists Convention Jan. 10-13 in Orlando.

Both joined the vast majority of dealers who said they had good commercial results.

“It has exceeded our expectation,” said Tiburon, Calif., dealer Don Kagin.

His results helped break a slack few months in the numismatic business generally.

“The market has been in the doldrums for months,” he said.

In Orlando, it was very different. Collectors were buying.

“We have been nonstop busy, coins, currency, exonumia. They want to buy coins again. They are here, and they want to buy,” Kagin said.

Col. Steven Ellsworth (ret.) of Nashville, Tenn., said, “It was pretty good. Yesterday was real good. Today (Saturday) was steady.”

His specialty is early copper coinage.

“The really nice pieces sell really well. The lower-grade common stuff nobody wants. Everything is moving to slabs,” he explained.

Ancients dealer James Beach of Owosso, Mich., said, “I say this show started really well. It was very busy opening day.”

He added, “We are continuing to see great traffic. I had a great show.”

Beach noted the conflict between the FUN show dates and the New York International Numismatic Convention going on simultaneously.

“I had better collector sales here versus New York,” he said.

Patchogue, N.Y., dealer Harry Miller of Miller’s Mint said, “I’ve been swamped the whole show,” hardly looking up from a box of coins brought to his table by another attendee who was seated across from him.

Error dealer Fred Weinberg of Encino, Calif., described the show as “one of the most well-attended FUN shows I’ve seen in years.

“Friday business was unexpected. Hearing from other dealers, everything was very, very active,” he said.

One dealer was so fired up about business at FUN that he came up behind me and slapped me on the shoulder to get my attention while I was speaking to another.

“’Good show. Put it down’ [in my notebook] Salisbury, Md., dealer Gus Tiso enthusiastically exclaimed while I was talking to Bob Campbell of All About Coins in Salt Lake City, Utah.

Campbell, whose table always has something from off the beaten path, was displaying the second-largest gold nugget ever found in the state of Arizona.

He valued the 28.22 ounce monster at $ 140,000.

It had been found in the mid-1970s at the top of a pile of tailings at an old mine by a Wisconsin geologist.

As for his sales results, Campbell said, “We did real good.”

Gary Adkins, who is current ANA president, said, “I think it was a fabulous show, very busy. The crowds were great.”

He explained that he remained on the bourse until 5:30 p.m. on Friday night and there were still lots of people there.

“If you come to do business, I think you’ll have a great show,” he said of the event overall.

Dealer opinion was not unanimous.

Jack and Sondra Beymer of Santa Rosa, Calif., were in the negative camp.

Jack said the show was “sleepier than usual.”

Sondra emphasized the point by saying “surprisingly sleepy.”

Part of the reason, Jack explained, was that potential buyers were asking for things he did not bring along to the show.

What did they want?

“Lower grades, circulated Buffaloes and Indian cents. The kind of thing I didn’t bring,” he replied.

“They are putting sets together for their grandchildren,” he said.

This, though, is good news in its way.

Even though this potential demand didn’t help him at the FUN show, it is good to hear that collectors are still building for the future by building sets for their grandchildren.

Marijuana Stocks Leave Investors Cold in the New Year

Pot stocks have cost exchange-traded fund (ETF) holders 40 percent since Canadian legalization leading to a down-turn in sentiment from investors, new research says.

Horizons ETFs Management, the company behind one of the most popular cannabis ETFs in Canada, published its quarterly survey results of advisors and investors on Monday (January 21).

The survey shows the decline of cannabis stocks has caused losses taking an impact on the bullish sentiment for these securities.

On the overall Canadian markets, the report indicates “advisor and investor bullishness has declined on nearly all asset classes heading into the new year.”

Steve Hawkins, president and CEO of Horizons ETFs, said the post-legalization correction had caused a “more reserved attitude” towards marijuana investing moving into 2019.

Horizons asks for input from advisors and investors of the public markets and shares the results on a primary way with bullish, bearish or neutral sentiment expression.

“Marijuana equities, as represented by the North American Marijuana Index, lost more than 40 [percent] after recreational legalization in Canada,” Horizons indicated in its report.

Horizons portfolio holds two cannabis ETFs, the Horizons Marijuana Life Sciences Index ETF (TSX:HMMJ) and the Horizons Emerging Marijuana Growers Index ETF (NEO:HMJR)

According to the survey results, both advisors and investors of the public space have expressed a “steep loss of positive expectation” for the cannabis sector.

Only 31 percent of respondents indicated a positive or bullish outlook on pot stocks.

Despite the gloomy outlook, Hawkins expects the growth of the industry to continue as companies show financial stability.

“As more of these Cannabis-sector companies begin to demonstrate their fundamentals through financial reporting, there will be a solid footing for analysts upon which to base their expectations for the industry – ensuring a measured outlook on growth,” Hawkins said.

Despite sentiment slowing down, projections continue to show massive industry

Earlier in January Vivien Azer, managing director and senior research analyst specializing in the beverage, tobacco, and cannabis sectors for financial institution Cowen (NASDAQ:COWN), raised her outlook on the value of the space.

The analyst wrote she expects the US cannabis market to represent sales of US$ 80 billion by 2030.

Similarly, a new study from the Arcview Group and BDS Analytics projected the global recreational sales of cannabis will amount to US$ 16.9 billion in 2019.

Beyond 2019, the Arcview Group is calling for recreational cannabis sales only to hit US$ 31.3 billion in 2022.

Investor takeaway

While those surveyed for the Horizons report demonstrate a bleak outlook on pot stocks right now, long-term projections show substantial returns awaiting investors.

Many factors played into the decline of stocks across the board in the public space.

However, the cannabis space is suffering some hits as Canadian companies continue to deploy assets for the adult-use market and eagerly await the entrance of edibles in the country, scheduled later this year.

Will AngloGold Leave South Africa in Order to Thrive?

Two decades ago, AngloGold Ashanti (JSE:ANG) combined its assets in South Africa and became the world’s largest gold producer. However, the miner may now have to abandon its home in order to rival competitors that have long since eclipsed the company.

According to a Bloomberg report, many analysts are speculating that in order for AngloGold to boost its value and rival companies such as Newmont Mining (NYSE:NEM) and Barrick Gold (TSX:ABX,NYSE:ABX), which not only outproduce the miner but have also recently formed mega companies, AngloGold may need to leave the African country.

“Their best bet is to get out of South Africa and leave Mponeng behind,” said Rene Hochreiter, analyst at Noah Capital Markets. Adding, “[the] costs never come down in South African gold.”

Read our report to learn about the upcoming risks to your investments

 

The Mponeng mine is the world’s deepest mine and due to the fact that it is located in a dying South African industry, AngloGold is struggling to contain the asset’s costs.

If the miner were to leave the struggling mine behind, it would act as a final step in the company’s gradual withdrawal from South Africa.

In fact, only 14 percent of AngloGold’s output in the third quarter of 2018 came from the country — a 26 decrease from 2017. Much of the output was lost when the company sold and shut down mines in order to stem losses.

Insiders close to the miner revealed that the company has been considering selling off its South African operations in favor of listing on the London and Toronto stock exchanges.

Following Barrick’s merger with Randgold Resources (LSE:RRS), London investors were left with very few options when it comes to purchasing gold and that could benefit AngloGold greatly.

“Whether it’s AngloGold or anybody else in South Africa gold, it makes sense to go and find other places to make money,” noted Leon Esterhuizen, an analyst at Nedcor Securities.

AngloGold’s CEO Kelvin Dushnisky has been candid regarding the fact that he has been looking to sell non-core assets in order to unlock value, but he’s also revealed that it’s too early to make a decision on South Africa. If the company’s scaled-down operations can generate free cash flow, then perceptions about the country might change, he has said.

As the relatively new CEO of AngloGold, Dushinsky has seen the company’s shares rally 41 percent since he took over in September. In comparison, Barrick has climbed 17 percent and Newmont just 2.4 percent over the same period.

James Bell, an analyst at RBC Capital Markets (TSX:RY,NYSE:RY), explained that further gains may be tempered by the difficult jurisdictions — including Tanzania and the Democratic Republic of Congo — in which the miner operates. Indeed, given the challenges AngloGold is facing, the company should be in no rush to exit South Africa if it can make those operations profitable, he added.

Despite the company landing on a list of gold producers that may be involved with a merger and acquisition deal at some point this year, Bell does not believe that AngloGold will be taken over.

“AngloGold is not a takeover target,” he said. “It’s a very large complicated business and has exposure to jurisdictions which are quite tough for other companies to be comfortable in.”

As of 12:45 p.m. EST on Monday (January 21), AngloGold was down 2.12 percent, trading at ZAC 16,602.00

VRIC 2019, Day 2: Notes from the Floor

It’s a wrap for this year’s Vancouver Resource Investment Conference (VRIC).

Held this past Sunday (January 20) and Monday (January 21), the event was well attended, with many presentations standing room only.

If you weren’t able to make it to the two-day show, don’t worry. The Investing News Network team was on the floor covering talks and panels, speaking with analysts and of course tweeting throughout the day. Click here to see our overview of the first day of the show, and scroll on to see our recap of day two.

 

Is the entire U.S stock market in a bubble?

Day two began with a focus on uranium, first with a talk from Marin Katusa of Katusa Research on “the next 10x bull market,” and then with a panel featuring execs from Ur-Energy (TSX:URE,NYSEAMERICAN:URG), Denison Mines (TSX:DML,NYSEAMERICAN:DNN), Fission Uranium (TSX:FCU) and Uranium Energy (NYSEAMERICAN:UEC).

Moderated by Katusa, the discussion covered a variety of topics, with prices and Section 232 developments featuring heavily.

Precious metals producers took the stage afterwards in a panel led by Peter Spina of GoldSeek.com. Last week’s deal between Newmont Mining (NYSE:NEM) and Goldcorp (TSX:G,NYSE:GG) was a hot topic, with participants expressing varying opinions on the tie up.

Keith Neumeyer of First Majestic Silver (TSX:FR,NYSE:AG) commented that the recent M&A activity among majors is “just the tip of the iceberg,” but said it will not immediately trickle down to juniors.

Speaking about silver, Neumeyer said that the metal is rarer than people think, although he doesn’t believe in peak silver. In a separate conversation with Spina later in the day, he spoke further about silver supply and demand dynamics.

Mercenary Geologist Mickey Fulp was unmissable as he led a walking tour midway through the morning.

The morning also included presentations from Chris Blasi of Neptune Global and Thom Calandra of the Calandra Report. Blasi covered Neptune Global’s PMC ounce, while Calandra led a discussion on Canada’s Abitibi region.

Brent Cook of Exploration Insights was also on stage on day two to discuss exploration due diligence, with tips on how to interpret data and understand when (and when not) to give up on a project.

As usual, the Yukon had a major presence at VRIC, and a core shack was set up at the Yukon Pavilion Monday afternoon for hands-on investors to explore.

While metals companies dominated the event, Eira Thomas of Lucara Diamond (TSX:LUC) caused a stir at her fireside chat with Katusa, displaying a replica of a diamond that sold for over US$ 50 million.

The second half of Monday brought more panels on topics including lithium and vanadium; ever-popular uranium also made another appearance.

Toward the end of day two, Peter Schiff of Euro Pacific Capital shared his thoughts on interest rates and the US Federal Reserve, explaining that even though markets seem to have bounced back we are still headed toward an “inevitable recession.” In his opinion, the Fed will have to come to the rescue (via quantitative easing) at some point in 2019.

The day closed out with a panel featuring newsletter writers Spina and Cook, as well as Nick Hodge of the Outsider Club and David Morgan of the Morgan Report. While in general they expressed that sentiment in the resource space isn’t overly positive right now, Hodge suggested that this means there is still time to choose winning stocks.

All four newsletter writers shared a stock pick with the audience before heading out.

Stay tuned as we begin to post video interviews and other coverage from VRIC.

Barrick Weighs Options for Copper Mine as Zambia Tax Hikes Loom

Barrick Gold (TSX:ABX, NYSE:GOLD) has begun considering various options for its Lumwana copper mine, which includes selling the asset, the company announced on Monday (January 21).

The miner began fleshing out arrangements for the mine when concerns surrounding potential tax hikes in Zambia grew.

“The proposed changes to taxes and royalties would imperil the mine’s ability to sustain returns to all stakeholders, such as the significant contribution of more than US$ 3.3 billion it has already made to the Zambian economy over the past 10 years,” said Willem Jacobs, CEO at Barrick in Africa and the Middle East.

While Barrick had previously stated that its copper mine was strategic and it would not be selling the asset, the miner has now noted that the “challenging conditions” which Lumwana faces have resulted in “all options” being considered.

“Lumwana has made detailed proposals to the government about a partnership approach which would provide the state with an improved share in the economics of Lumwana without overburdening the mine,” stated Jacobs.

“Finding a win-win solution between the industry and government would without doubt increase investor confidence in Zambia and safeguard the long-term prospects of its mining industry,” he added.

This is not the first African tax dispute that Barrick has been involved with in recent years. At the beginning of this year, the miner began fleshing out options for its stake in gold producer Acacia Mining (LSE:ACA), as it has spent almost two-years in the middle of  a tax dispute in Tanzania, where its government has accused the company of US$ 200 billion in tax fraud.

“This has been a very complex and challenging situation where no one has won. It’s untenable and will be resolved,” said Mark Bristow, CEO, in January.

Barrick revealed that it could purchase the remaining shares of Acacia, or it could split the company up, among other options.

“This conflict has destroyed lots of value. We need to make sure there’s enough value to work out a solution that various interested and affected parties get something that’s fair and proper for them,” he said, adding that the company would provide more information during the second week of February.

As of 4:01 p.m. EST, Barrick was up 1.60 percent, trading at C$ 15.89..

Coin dealers say they had great bourse sales

Both candidates for president of the American Numismatic Association had tables on the bourse floor of the Florida United Numismatists Convention Jan. 10-13 in Orlando.

Both joined the vast majority of dealers who said they had good commercial results.

“It has exceeded our expectation,” said Tiburon, Calif., dealer Don Kagin.

His results helped break a slack few months in the numismatic business generally.

“The market has been in the doldrums for months,” he said.

In Orlando, it was very different. Collectors were buying.

“We have been nonstop busy, coins, currency, exonumia. They want to buy coins again. They are here, and they want to buy,” Kagin said.

Col. Steven Ellsworth (ret.) of Nashville, Tenn., said, “It was pretty good. Yesterday was real good. Today (Saturday) was steady.”

His specialty is early copper coinage.

“The really nice pieces sell really well. The lower-grade common stuff nobody wants. Everything is moving to slabs,” he explained.

Ancients dealer James Beach of Owosso, Mich., said, “I say this show started really well. It was very busy opening day.”

He added, “We are continuing to see great traffic. I had a great show.”

Beach noted the conflict between the FUN show dates and the New York International Numismatic Convention going on simultaneously.

“I had better collector sales here versus New York,” he said.

Patchogue, N.Y., dealer Harry Miller of Miller’s Mint said, “I’ve been swamped the whole show,” hardly looking up from a box of coins brought to his table by another attendee who was seated across from him.

Error dealer Fred Weinberg of Encino, Calif., described the show as “one of the most well-attended FUN shows I’ve seen in years.

“Friday business was unexpected. Hearing from other dealers, everything was very, very active,” he said.

One dealer was so fired up about business at FUN that he came up behind me and slapped me on the shoulder to get my attention while I was speaking to another.

“’Good show. Put it down’ [in my notebook] Salisbury, Md., dealer Gus Tiso enthusiastically exclaimed while I was talking to Bob Campbell of All About Coins in Salt Lake City, Utah.

Campbell, whose table always has something from off the beaten path, was displaying the second-largest gold nugget ever found in the state of Arizona.

He valued the 28.22 ounce monster at $ 140,000.

It had been found in the mid-1970s at the top of a pile of tailings at an old mine by a Wisconsin geologist.

As for his sales results, Campbell said, “We did real good.”

Gary Adkins, who is current ANA president, said, “I think it was a fabulous show, very busy. The crowds were great.”

He explained that he remained on the bourse until 5:30 p.m. on Friday night and there were still lots of people there.

“If you come to do business, I think you’ll have a great show,” he said of the event overall.

Dealer opinion was not unanimous.

Jack and Sondra Beymer of Santa Rosa, Calif., were in the negative camp.

Jack said the show was “sleepier than usual.”

Sondra emphasized the point by saying “surprisingly sleepy.”

Part of the reason, Jack explained, was that potential buyers were asking for things he did not bring along to the show.

What did they want?

“Lower grades, circulated Buffaloes and Indian cents. The kind of thing I didn’t bring,” he replied.

“They are putting sets together for their grandchildren,” he said.

This, though, is good news in its way.

Even though this potential demand didn’t help him at the FUN show, it is good to hear that collectors are still building for the future by building sets for their grandchildren.

Toyota and Panasonic Considering EV Battery JV

International automobile manufacturer Toyota Motor (TSE:7203,NYSE:TM) and global tech company Panasonic (TSE:6752) may launch a joint venture (JV) next year to produce in-demand batteries for electric vehicles (EV).

The partnership will compete directly with rival Chinese producers, bringing more variety to the market, according to reports.

Toyota will take a 51-percent majority stake in the EV battery JV, with Panasonic owning the remaining 49 percent.

A source familiar with the matter told Reuters that the company could potentially supply its new batteries to Toyota’s EV technology partners Mazda (TSE:7261) and Subaru (TSE:7270), giving them a large chunk of the emerging electric vehicle market.

While the JV is still in the speculation stage, in 2017 both companies announced they were launching a feasibility study to collaborate on automotive prismatic batteries with higher energy density.

“[B]oth companies intend to broadly study concrete areas of collaboration from automotive prismatic lithium-ion batteries to next-generation batteries, such as solid-state, including procurement of the resources for such, all the way to reuse and recycling,” Toyota President Akio Toyoda said at the time.

The proposed battery maker would allow Toyota to achieve its projected annual sales target of around 1-million zero-emission battery EVs and fuel-cell vehicles by 2030.

For Panasonic, the exclusive battery cell supplier for Tesla’s (NASDAQ:TSLA) current production models, the JV would allow it to supply additional automakers easing its reliance on the EV maker, and giving them a broader market segment.

According to the source, Panasonic will move the majority of its prismatic battery-related equipment and facilities in Japan and China to the joint venture, while keeping the production of Tesla’s batteries under the Panasonic umbrella.

Panasonic already makes prismatic batteries for Toyota, further batteries could be used to power Toyota’s latest EV concept vehicle, the ultra-compact i-Road, a hybrid between a motor bike and car designed for urban living.

Toyota shares were up 0.74 percent on Monday (January 21) to US$ 125.35, while Panasonic shares were up 2.23 percent trading at US$ 9.81.

Curis To Release Data From Three Programs in 2019

Curis’ (NASDAQ:CRIS) CEO James Dentzer said 2019 will be the year of multiple data readouts for all three of its drug candidates in the clinic.

Dentzer told the Investing News Network (INN) the company will present the data at a medical conference, if it’s convenient. Otherwise a top-line data release will be Curis’ next option to share the news with investors. Later, investigators on the trial would follow up with more data at a medical conference.

The company’s three drugs in the clinic are fimepinostat, CA-107 and CA-4948. The first targets a gene called MYC, which Dentzer said which helps cancer cell grow, really fast. “We knock that down, both gene and protein to keep the cancer under control,” he noted. Fimepinostat has US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) fast track designation.

The second program, CA-107, targets the checkpoint VISTA.“It’s an intersection point between your immune system and a tumor,” Dentzer said. CA-107 has shown to block that interaction and maintain the immune system during the fight; that way, it can focus on attacking cancer cells and killing them, he said.

CA-4948, the third program in the clinic, is an IRAK4 target program, which Dentzer said no one else has done before. It targets a specific minizone in the body which could decrease B-cell proliferation, which can cause B-cell lymphomas, he said. This calendar year will be for “definitive efficacies or definitive data, to show these programs work in all three,” he said.

The goal for these programs would be both a mix of combination therapies and as stand-alones. Dentzer said cancers are likely best treated in the future in combination therapy with a “cocktail of drugs.”

Curis has a proven past of at least one successful drug with Erivedge, an FDA approved oral small molecule which inhibits the Hedgehog signalling pathway. This pathway is implicated in over 90 percent of basal cell carcinoma cases and is also found in medulloblastomas. From a collaboration partnership, Roche (OTCQX:RHHBY) and Genentech have developed and commercialized the drug.

The drug brought in US$ 250 million last year for Roche and Genentech and US$ 10 million for Curis, Dentzer said. The drug’s revenue has increased about 20 percent per year, he added.

While this is one way to generate cash for Curis, the company also raises money through equity and business development deals.

For manufacturing, Robert Martell, head of research and development at Curis, said the company is on target with its “broader development efforts,” along with the “ultimate product” that will go on the market. The process is ongoing and is moving forward with all three of the company’s products. Dentzer added the manufacturing at Curis is much more simple compared to other biotech companies.

Dentzer said a big focus on attending JPM week in San Francisco is meeting with “potential partners.” This discussion is ongoing with the company, as partnering could be the right formula for Dentzer’s view of treating cancers with multiple cocktails.

However the company’s ultimate goal, Dentzer said, is to create a new blockbuster drug—meaning a drug with billion dollar revenue for a year.

Watch the interview above for more insight on Curis’ goals, including Dentzers drug programs, checkpoint inhibitors and treating cancer.
