Jim Puplava welcomes Frank Holmes back to Financial Sense Newshour to discuss all things oil and gold. Citing Royal Dutch Shell’s $70 billion acquisition of the BG Group, Frank believes oil prices might have bottomed—though that doesn’t mean the bottom won’t get tested again.

Moving on to gold, Frank points out that the yellow metal, along with many Canadian junior gold producers such as Klondex Mines and Claude Resources, are currently above their 50-day moving averages. Among other characteristics Frank likes to see in a gold company are attractive profit margins, regular dividend payments and dependable management. It’s important that top executives be knowledgeable in geology, know how to tell their company’s story well and be on a first-name basis with brokers, fund managers and others in the capital markets.
