Many people have strong opinions on silver and other precious metals. Ralph Aldis, current portfolio manager of US Global investors, has been analyzing precious metal markets for several years now. He is very confident that silver and gold have a bright future ahead of them.
Who is Ralph Aldis?
Individuals who have kept close tabs on the financial industry may have come across the name of Ralph Aldis before. He has been a long-term analyst of precious metal markets. Throughout his career, he has worked for many different companies all over the world. This lifetime experience has allowed him to share his outlook on the financial world with the rest of the world.
Companies which Aldis worked for – or still works for – include the China Region Fund, the US Global Jets ETF, All American Equity Fund, and Holmes Macro Trends Fund. All of these entities are prominent in their respective industry. Being able to be part of so many great companies provides unprecedented experience and insights.
Ralph Aldis has also been named twice as a US Metals and Mining “TopGun”. This title is “awarded” by Brendan Wood International every single year. He is also the Best Americas Based Fund manager in 2016, awarded by Mining Journal.
Ralph Aldis Focuses on Stocks
Unlike what some people may expect, Ralph Aldis does not discuss prices of precious metals individually all that often. Instead, he likes to keep tabs on the much bigger picture. That includes evaluating companies active in precious metals, and what their business model may entail exactly.
In recent years, his attention has shifted primarily to mining stocks. This is not unlike some other gold and silver bugs we have covered in the past. If mining operations do well, the metals they produce tend to benefit from this upward momentum as well.
Ralph Aldis on Gold and Silver
Similar to other precious metal analysts, Aldis is keeping a very close eye on the markets as of right now. The recent intervention by governments and central banks will have unforeseen consequences on the global economy. It seems very unlikely that this impact will be positive. As such, the demand for safe havens, such as gold and silver, is likely to keep increasing.
He also hints at how a potential change in White House leadership can be another major catalyst for these markets. Politics have a way of upsetting financial markets, primarily stocks, bonds, and treasuries. Anything not directly influenced by governments and central banks will tend to fare a whole lot better.
