Frank Holmes: These Gold Names Have “Exceptional Value”

Palisade Radio’s Collin Kettell welcomes Frank Holmes back to the program to discuss what Frank is calling a “tsunami in the junior resource space.” What Frank is referring to is the rebalancing of the VanEck Vectors Junior Gold Miners ETF (GDXJ), and what effect this is having on small- and mid-cap gold producers.

He explains that a lot of these names are getting indiscriminately sold down and pushed out of the GDXJ portfolio to make room for bigger names. The issue here is these smaller names are reporting “phenomenal fundamentals” so investors could be missing out. Rather than being afraid of this, however, Frank tells listeners to “use it as your opportunity.”

Listen to the interview below to hear which names Frank believes have “exceptional value.”
