Copper looks to break out

This is your Resource Stock Digest editor Gerardo Del Real here with some Monday coffee talking points for you.

So, what am I watching this week?

I'm definitely watching copper. The red metal looks like it wants to break out to the US$4.60/lb level on the spot price. If it does, I think it then rushes to the US$5/lb level. I absolutely see US$6 and US$7 per pound copper in the cards over the next several years. With copper shortages materializing in the global clean energy transition, you’ll want to make sure to have a very good amount of copper exposure in your portfolio.

As always, I’m watching gold, which has been a bit boring the last few weeks. Yet, I actually find that exciting because every time the yellow metal gets boring, it shoots higher, just like it’s doing today. And, to me, putting in a higher base around the US$2,330 to US$2,340 per ounce level is a heck of a new base.

I'm also seeing a dollar index that finally looks like it wants to weaken. It's currently sitting right above the 105 level. And any further move to the downside will certainly bode well for precious metals prices.

Stock-wise, I’m watching Aldebaran Resources (TSX-V: ALDE)(OTC: ADBRF), which looks like it too wants to break out. It’s currently trading around the C$1.08 per share level and is up some 8% today. Again, ALDE is one of those copper-gold stocks that should have been in your portfolio when it was trading around C$0.60 to C$0.70 a share. I believe it’s still cheap… but I don't believe it stays cheap for very much longer.

I’ll also be keeping an eye on uranium and lithium. That's what I have my eye on this week.

Have a great week out there everyone.

Let's get it!
