How to Protect your Wealth by Investing in AI Tech Stocks

How to ‘Invest' In Precious Metals and Commodities with $5,000 to $10,000

InvestorEducation / Options & Warrants Mar 13, 2008 - 12:42 PM GMT

By: Dudley_Baker

InvestorEducation There are many ways to invest in the precious metals and natural resource sector. Many analysts would first suggest investors purchase gold and silver bullion or coins, then focus on some of the larger capitalized mining companies (most of which are selling for over $35 per share). You might consider the GLD or the SLV, the Exchange Traded Funds for gold and silver currently selling for $96 and $197, respectively. Not all investors have the financial resources necessary to purchase these alternatives.


So we ask, what about the individual with only $5,000 to $10,000 available to invest? Are they to be left out of this bull market? With limited investment funds, the above ideas are of little value due to the cost of each and the difficulty of diversifying your choices.

For individuals with limited resources, not only can we suggest some different vehicles for you to purchase, but how you can diversify with positions in several different companies.

Let's explore the use of options, leaps and warrants allowing you to limit your investment exposure but still having the incredible power of leverage working for you. By selecting the right companies, options, leaps and warrants will provide you with the potential of increasing your $5,000 to $10,000 many times over.

Many call options, leaps and warrants are selling for pennies allowing your $5,000 to $10,000 to be spread/diversified over several different companies. Frankly, I would suggest purchasing call options, leaps or warrants on 4 or 5 different companies. You could pick a junior gold company, a silver company, a uranium company or an oil & gas company, thus diversifying your holdings and giving yourself more chances of being correct.

If you are unfamiliar with options, leaps and warrants, here is a brief overview:

Options and leaps trade on the Chicago Board Option Exchange ( CBOE ). They are a contract giving you, the investor, the right, but not the obligation, to purchase the underlying security at a specific price and expiring on a specific date in the future. Call options may have a life of 30 days to 1 year, while leaps may have a life of up to 2 years. Your loss is limited to your investment for these contracts and no margin is used. The potential gains are great, if you are correct in your timing and company selection.

Warrants are slightly different in that warrants trade like a stock and are issued by a company usually in an initial public offering or in a financing arrangement. Many sophisticated investors are not aware that there are many warrants trading. While it is very common for warrants to be issued in private placements, particularly in the mining sector, these warrants do not trade and thus cannot be purchased. What is of particular interest, is there are numerous warrants trading which have a remaining life of 3 years or more.

Think about the possibility of a long-term warrant on one of your favorite resource companies with several years of time remaining. We consider long-term warrants to be an investment not speculation.

Warrants will provide you with the opportunity to participate in this bull market with time on your side, a much lower cost than purchasing the common shares and the power of leverage working for you. As with options and leaps, your potential loss with warrants is limited to your cost and there is no margin.

In summary, investors with limited resources to invest can have a stake in this bull market and the opportunity for incredible gains by considering the use of options, leaps and warrants. Actually, I have recently purchased some call options on a large silver company which did not have warrants trading. I am investor first and seek out the best opportunities whether that is acquiring the common shares, options, leaps or warrants.

For subscribers to our service, we provide a table of all resource companies with options, leaps and warrants which are currently available to assist you with making your investment decisions.
