We met up with Mickey Fulp, the Mercenary Geologist, at the Metals and Minerals Conference in New York City on May 12 and 13. We asked him what investors should expect in the year to come and some of the companies on his watch list. Here’s what he shared with us

Jon Nadler Talks about Silver's Cloudy Lining
by Allen Alper. and Jason Clements
Jon Nadler, Senior Metals Analyst, Kitco Bullion Dealers, is bearish on silver prices.

Mr. Nadler applied the basic laws of supply and demand mentioning that a decrease in demand for silver and a current surplus points to a decrease in price. He’s not totally against silver though; he just says if you do invest in silver, “Do it in addition to a core position in gold.”

Mickey Fulp Talks about the Critical Problem of “Critical” Metals
by Allen Alper. and Aaron Hoos
Markets go up and down. They are fundamentally propelled by supply and demand but markets are also propelled by investor exuberance over the latest fad. For a while it was gold.
