Theron de Ris presented his in-depth investment theses on Seabridge Gold (NYSE: SA) and Pretium Resources (NYSE: PVG) at European Investing Summit 2015.

Basket of Precious Metals Equities: A once-in-a-generation opportunity currently exists to invest near the bottom of the largest precious metals down-cycle in the post-war period. Timing the bottom is impossible but, like day follows night, when the sun comes out to shine again on this capital-starved industry investors will bask in its warm glow. With industry valuations at record lows and after a 4+ year bear market in gold and silver, we believe the gold stock upcycle will last longer than appears possible (just as the downcycle has). Smaller companies will, on balance, rise far more than their large peers. In this presentation we will go from the macro –answering the question “why now?” – to the micro, describing our portfolio construction, investment process and the type of stock-specific set-up we prefer to invest in, such as Seabridge Gold (NYSE: SA) and Pretium Resources (NYSE: PVG), and Silver Wheaton (NYSE: SLW).
