A Special Alert Musing from Mickey the Mercenary Geologist
December 16, 2021
Tax-loss selling season is in full force this week as speculators exit mal-investments in junior resource stocks and push many good companies to 52-week lows. Those belatedly trying to lessen their 2021 capital gains taxes are indiscriminately hitting stink bids. For savvy contrarians, such silly selling is a bargain basement buying opportunity.
My favorite copper development company and longtime sponsor Trilogy Metals Inc (TMQ.AM; TMQ.TSX) is no exception. It has been brutally sold down over the last two months.
This is Trilogy Metals 52-week chart as of yesterday’s close:
Since I last reported on Trilogy Metals Inc (Mercenary Alert, January 15, 2021), the company has made several important announcements:
Targets within three to five km of Arctic were evaluated by six holes. Regional exploration included widespread mapping and sampling and two drill holes on the Snow prospect and the lowland valley between the Arctic and Bornite deposits. In total, eight holes comprising about 3200 meters were drilled during the 2021 summer field season.
News anticipated over the next two months includes results from the remaining eight geotechnical holes and six infill/metallurgical holes within the Arctic deposit and the eight exploration drill holes. The company is also updating its Bornite copper-cobalt resource estimate
As a committed contrarian speculator, I buy when the herd is selling and vice versa. I recently bought more Trilogy Metals Inc near its 52-week low and it is still trading at depressed levels. Now may be an opportune time to initiate a position, add to holdings, or establish a trading tranche to supplement a core position.
As I have stated before, my ultimate exit strategy for Trilogy Metals Inc is a take-over by its major integrated mining partner, South-32 Ltd.
Note that Trilogy Metals is a sponsor. Therefore, opinions expressed herein may be conflicted by my financial dealings with the company and ownership of its stock.
