Curiosity killed the ...?



April 25, 2009 – Comments (6) | RELATED TICKERS: CAT

We all know the feeling. Trying to find small-cap stocks--especilly foreign ones--can cause you to lose a whisker or worse. And while there are plenty of bad cats in the neighborhood (Cougar Biotechnology-cough cough) that will leave your paws bleeding, there is still one cat that will leave you feeling pampered. If you want to feel more like this cat:

and less like this one:

Try Jaguar Mining (JAG), the world's best-run small gold miner. I green thumbed this in both my GMX and GMXmkttiming profiles at $5 and now here we are at $6. Unlike many of my picks, rest assured, I'm not in this for the quick 5 points (though I'm A) up 20 points, and B) I will close my green thumb and rethumb it up later to get more accuracy on a pullback) Jaguar is a performer for the long run. You can count on this cat.

The problem with Jaguar (and I say this as a shareholder), is despite their strong management, the location of their mines are in a traditionally very heavily mined region of Brazil.

I'm confident that they're striking the right deals, but I have somewhat less confidence about their ability to accurately assess reserves and extraction costs.

I suspect that I'm not along in this opinion, which explains the low price -- but I agree that it appears solidly managed overall, and deserves a place in a well diversified portfolio.

My roommates say they'd rather be the 2nd cat than the first. I guess I grabbed bad pics. Anyway, both pictures made me laugh, so hopefully you got some entermainment and maybe even a morsel of investing advice by reading this despite the analogy fail.

Congrats on finally learning how to embed pictars! You are now one with the HTML gods. ;)

Also, congrats on attracting the attention of above miner in TARKWA GHANA. May your communications with him be spurious and full of blatant security breaches, as is the custom.

What do you think about DIN? I think it's looking WAY overvalued, and am considering buying a june and/or sept 25 put. Let me know if you think that's worthwhile, maybe throw in a red thumb with me.

BFB - BravoBevo (#1 in points) points out that almost all of DIN's debt isn't due until 2037. Still, I have a hard time seeing how it's one of the market's best opportunities right now. I'm starting to suspect BB has traveled to the future and collected the whole set of 2009's WSJ.

Ian - What are your views on TMV? From what I can tell, it's a 30-year Treasury 3xBear.
