In Venture Investor, we look for some of the best resource companies in the world that are backed by some of the sector's best people, have excellent management teams, top shelf assets, and the best chances of delivering big value to skilled shareholders. The current bear market in resources has made some of the best assets dirt cheap. In fact, the stories behind some resources such as precious metals, base metals, uranium, and other resources are so compelling it is only a matter of when, not if, prices rise again. We expect to capture those gains by being properly invested in the best resource stocks the sector has to offer. By becoming a subscriber to Venture Investor, you will get refined research and details about what we believe are the best opportunities out there.

Natural resources are among the most, if not the most, volatile and explosive markets in the realm of investing. The gains can be compared to nothing else, and subsequently, so can the losses. You must have an ironclad gut, zero emotion, and unwavering conviction. Most importantly, you must be able buy the right assets, at the right time, all while knowing when conditions are ripe to harvest your gains. Further, you must be able to understand that losses are inevitable in order to significantly profit. In short, you need to know how to buy, how to hold, and how to sell any investment in this sector, or any investment elsewhere for that matter. SmithWeekly International's Venture Investor newsletter service is your guide. Follow it closely, and the gains over the next few years will be extraordinary.

We have been waiting since 2012 to launch Venture Investor. We finally launched in July 2015. Our delay was for one primary reason: we wanted a good starting point with extremely favorable market conditions. We have these conditions now in the resource market. The carnage in resources has caused many companies to shut down and has put many others on the brink of closing. Even many of the best companies have been significantly devalued.

But natural resources are required for modern ways of life. Without them, almost everything we enjoy in modern times would not be possible. Extraction of resources from the earth must occur to maintain and advance modern ways of life. If not, life as we currently know it cannot continue. Don't worry, this isn't going to be the case.

There is the economic function of resource supply and demand, which is often expressed with prices. Generally, when supply is plentiful, prices tend to fall, much like we have seen with many natural resources over the past few years. Low prices can force resource businesses to limit or shutdown their operations altogether. This effect of limited or no production can begin to remove the excess supply off the market because overall productive capacity has been reduced as a result of low prices. This sequence can give birth to the demand side of the trend, where limited or no supply can cause demand to take over, resulting in a new cycle of rising prices. Before that happens, capital in the sector begins to dry up. Having adequate capital during the difficult times is critical. Without capital, companies are forced to find more or go broke trying. Companies that have quality assets, low production costs, and good management teams tend to outlast the poorly managed companies. As a result, they attract proper capitalization. This spans the entire natural resource sector, whether it is precious metals, oil, uranium, coal, or base metals. You can see the cycles play out by looking at historical action in the sector. During the last cycle, from about 2008 to 2012, the major gold producer exchange traded fund, GDX, went from $18 to $65 per share, about a 361% gain from bottom to top. And GDX holds some of the biggest mining companies in its fund. Small resource companies are even more volatile, often gaining 1000% or more from the market bottom. Right now, we are near or at a bottom in many parts of the resource sector. Investors that are prepared now and that can take advantage of the current situation will do extremely well in the coming years.

With that said, we believe now is a very low risk point at which to get invested into the resource sector. You have to be selective in the companies you choose, as not all of them are worthy of investment. In fact, most of the names in the sector are worthless. There are thousands of resource related companies out there, but less than 10% of them might actually have something worth looking into. A big home to many resource companies is on the Canadian stock exchanges, specifically, the Toronto Venture Exchange, where many small resource companies list their shares. The majority are nothing more than a name, a website, and a bank account. We looked at 189 companies before even preparing our first issue of Venture Investor earlier this year. We were confident with only about 40 of the names we looked at and we will most likely recommend less than 30 of them during this market cycle. However, we cannot be certain that other quality companies will emerge during this time period, so we are keeping a look out for more quality companies.

How do we find the best companies poised for successful projects that will deliver big value to shareholders? Simple: we find and follow the best people in the business. These folks are expert geologists, entrepreneurs, managers, accountants, and they have a history of being consistently successful in their work. Their expertise helps add significant credibility to the detail needed to bring success to a project. They put their money, literally, where their mouth is. The fact that their own money is heavily invested in a project adds a significant layer of comfort when we take our investment position alongside them.

One of those people is Ross Beaty. Mr. Beaty is a repeatedly successful business entrepreneur in the resource sector. He is also a geologist. One of his past successes was with Pan American Silver. In the 2001 to 2007 bull market in resources, Beaty's company went from about $3 to $40 per share, an amazing 1,333% return. He is still a director of the company today. In Venture Investor, we follow Mr. Beaty and where he makes his investments.
