Why IMF Is Worried about the US’s Expanding Debt Profile

12h marketrealist
As we’ve seen in the previous part, all is not hunky dory with the International Monetary Fund’s (IMF) forecasts. On one hand, it has increased US growth projections due to the stimulus from tax cuts. On the other hand, it believes that there could be bad news ahead because of the cuts. Since these tax cuts are unfunded, the IMF believes that there will be a need for severe spending cuts in the coming years.

Increased Volatility and Gold Investors

2018-04-17 marketrealist
While gold miners have been out of favor for a long time, that might be about to change. Since the uncertainty in the market is increasing, gold prices are poised to rise. This rise should be followed by gold miners (GDX), which are essentially a leveraged play on gold prices. Moreover, gold miners as a group have emerged as much stronger, leaner, and more competitive after their mistimed deals at the peak of the cycle, leading to debt escalations and substantial write-offs.

Are the Top 16 Risks to Gold Stocks in 2018 Catalysts for Gold? - ValueWalk

2018-04-17 valuewalk
Gold and silver mining stocks face increased risks and uncertainty in 2018, not seen by investors and mining management teams for quite some time. Many of the top risks to gold stocks are related to geopolitical and financial, which will only compound the already high operational risks. Many of these top risks to gold stocks can be applied to silver stocks and any commodity stocks as well. What was most interesting, many of these risks are not seen as a concern to the management teams of Newmont Mining or Barrick Gold when going through their 10-Ks, versus the elevated risks the investment community sees in the macro landscape.
