In late 2009 I wrote a piece on Gold, highlighting two promising gold stocks, ANV and SWC:
Since that write-up, ANV went from $9 to over $20, while SWC went from $7 to over $13.
I wasn't utilizing the Trend Models back then, not like I am now, but those two stocks have clearly been huge winners in mega long term trends. We know from the Trend Tables that gold and silver trend well, especially in longer-term models. We can glean from the performance of these two stocks that applying trend analysis to individual gold and silver stocks can produce some nicely out sized gains.
In January, 2009 I wrote up TGB @ $1. It ran to over $6:
The more I think about a Gold & Silver Basket to complement the Trend Models, the more appealing the idea becomes to me. While waiting for Armageddon to arrive to the stock market, this could very well be an excellent sector to generate solid returns. I hope to get started on the basket in this coming subscriber Weekend Update.
