GOAU: A New Way to Invest in Gold and Precious Metals

Watch this exciting interview at Kitco news for a first-hand introduction to GOAU, a gold and precious metals ETF launching soon. Learn more about this game-changing product here and view the SEC filing details here.

Unlike other gold ETFs, GOAU implements a "quant" strategy to guide its stock selection. Drawing from an array of factors that have proven successful, the new ETF seeks, for instance, to discriminate between companies with good and bad management and to identify companies with superior metrics. This active, discriminating approach not only is attractive for its own sake, but is buttressed by back testing results going back 10 years.

GOAU is also unique in that it incorporates streamers and royalty companies. Through NSRs (Net Smelter Returns) and similar deals, which avoid share dilution and which may even attach to property title, streamers and royalty companies offer an indirect, but arguably much safer way to gain exposure to gold explorers and developers.

Finally, the GOAU picks up a safe slice of world production. Since moves in the price of gold, and ultimate profitability of miners, can vary greatly from country to country as local currencies fluctuate, this ETF benefits from having diverse holdings.

I fully expect the GOAU to become larger than the GDXJ ETF within 5 years and ultimately to surpass even the GDX ETF, becoming second only to GLD ETF in the gold sector.

Anyone looking for exposure to the gold sector need look no further than GOAU. Once it has launched, I plan on putting my own gold sector investment allocations into this incredible product!

Gold and Silver Miner Market Capitalization Estimates

TSX/TSXv Grouping TSX/TSXv Total Market Capitalization
(Millions of US$)
Gold & Silver Producers $118,237
Gold & Silver Streamers $13,486
Gold & Silver Developers $10,756
Gold & Silver Explorers $7,783
Total TSX/TSXv Gold & Silver Miners $150,262
Market Cap Estimate For the World's
Gold & Silver miners (Millions of US$)

Note: All TSX/TSXv companies with at least 12.5% of their total in situ metal value coming from either gold or silver and which match the category definitions, are included in the above table.

Gold & Silver Producers category includes those companies that report quarterly production counts and revenues for gold and/or silver production.

Gold & Silver Streamers category includes companies focused on creating gold/silver streams or royalty income flows.

Gold & Silver Developers category includes companies with an explicit plan to start production in the near term or which have a spending profile and work plans to imply potential future production.

Gold & Silver Explorers category includes companies that are primarily focused on expanding resource counts at one or more existing gold and silver projects without indicating plans for future production.

Generator and grass roots companies are not covered.

Market capitalization is always computed using closing market price (expressed in US$ using exchange rates in effact at market closing time) and the issued share of each company. Updates are made daily after the TSX market close.

TSX/TSXv Market Share Assumptions: the TSX/TSXv gold producers are estimated to represent approximately 25% of the world's gold producers since the TSX/TSXv gold producers report approximately 25% of the world's yearly gold production. The streamers, explorers and developers are estimated to represent very roughly 50% of the world total for companies in those groupings.

NOTE October 24, 2016: Lowered the TSX/TSXv producer gold production estimate to 25% down from 33% - thus the spike in Market Cap Estimate for the World's Gold & Silver miners.

The Market Cap Estimate For the World's Gold & Silver miners is computed based on the actual TSX/TSXv market capitalizations, computed on a daily basis here using closing market prices and material filings as available at the TSX market closing time, and applying the market share assumptions detailed above.
