Might as well own it via Capstone (sold the property into Kutcho for a 16% stake)...atleast CS is already producing
:idea: :) :lol: :razz: :D

I like your idea but why go with the producer when there is more upside to the junior player and if copper is there, there's little exploratory risks?

I actually went with FWZ instead of HBM and the latter owns 15% of FWZ. Had I bought HBM, I would have been 20-30% up but because I went with FWZ, I'm up between 60-100% across a few accounts and that's before the gut-wrenching drop of 30% from when I bought the shares right after the IPO.

Because the mine is in BC and the government/first nations doesn't need a reason it they want to delay the mine until 2030?

Sold BBD, AIM, AAL too soon. :(

Any stock, besides weeds, TSLA and altcoins, with a potential 100-300% return over five years and why do you think so?
Of course. There are many of them, but they all involve a lot of risk so when you consider the risk adjusted return they aren't such a great deal. Can you afford to possibly lose or not gain anything at all? Most can't afford to speculate as you seem to want to do.

now as far as Fairfax India, from morningstar rating & FIH.U performance whether they can maintain the growth/yield to a double in 5 years is anyones guess

I also believe Blackberry is well on its turnaround and showing good value now. Minimum risk and low multiple.

Most will do cryptocurrencies though.

OP asking this question there needs to be further information, such as ... on the basis that you want to invest in a single stock pick?

Is there a lower or upper limit stock price that you have in mind, possibly a penny stock or something not less than $10?

Will the investment be life savings, leveraged investment, retirement fund or YOLO money.

Then how much are you willing to invest, or gamble, is it less than $100k or more?

You can hedge that by putting money into an Indian bank like ICIC... After all, if the economy does well, typically the banks do very well.

Why would I add more constraints? Title says it all yet there are not a lot of recommendations coming through. :)

Print this table,
staple it to the barroom wall,
throw a dart.
Chances as good as they get, that you will hit a 5-year three bagger.

Rule #1: Only throw one dart.
If you miss the printout completely - do nothing.
Rule #2: If you hit ABX - FREE THROW!
Revert to rule #1.

Disclaimer: Chances as good as they get, that you will hit a 5-year negative three bagger.

In terms of crypto currency. Ltc, dgb and xrp will most likely triple.

Stocks, nutanix, AMD, Cisco, teck resources

If you want a risky AF you can choose petlife. It's currently valued at 2 cents. I purchased 40k at a penny. But I like risk. It's fun ;)

I like Berkshire Hathaway class b... if you can afford class a that too lol


their subsidiary companies are diverse and well established

The possible replacement for Warren Buffett will be in house and those executives have been with the company for decades

I like AMD as well their market cap is small compared to Nvidia and intel but with reliance on AI becoming mainstream it should grow at rapid pace but of course this one is more risky

With a 5 year horizon a 2X bagger is possible. However valuations are stretched and no one knows how much longer we have with this bull run. My picks would be V, MA, CRM and possibly VFC. 3 of the 4 pay a bit of a dividend and could be classified as Blue chips which may mean lower risk.

Brk.b was a steal in 2009!! I'm not sure it can double but still has great potential.

AMD has been a basket case in the past year. I've used to be invested in it but the fact that in the past 6 months while NVDA has gone up over 40% and AMD has loss 3 to 4% tells you something.... And the 1 year numbers are even worse with AMD down 10% and NVDA up over 120%.

AMD is a trade with a buy point under $11 and a sell point over $13.50 US and you could have cycled that twice in the past year.

Lol. I knew you had nothing to contribute when you linked a Globe and Mail article.
