Investing in Mining? What’s Your Strategy?

Investment strategy in the mining industry. Stefan Ioannou, Mining Analyst at Cormark Securities shares his thoughts.

“Investment strategy really comes down to your risk tolerance. Some of the best returns can be made on early stage exploration companies. Essentially, it’s almost like buying a lottery ticket. Returns can be very high but the chance for failure is also high. Conversely, established producers that have steady cash flow profiles, long mine lives that are well-defined ahead of them, can generate meaningful returns over a long period but they may not be subject to the windfalls that an exploration company may have.” – Stefan Ioannou, Mining Analyst at Cormark Securities
