Less than seven months ago, we recommended OR, the stock was selling at just over $7.65 per share. We concluded that owning shares in OR is an excellent way to own an interest in Gold and other Valuable hard Assets. Therefore, given its focus on Precious Metals, it provides some downside protection against substantial Market and/or Economic downturns going forward.
And given our (correct) forecast that the Precious Metals were going to launch up, we recommended buying OR. As we write, shares are trading just under $11.45. That’s about a 50% profit. While we believe OR has some more upside, we believe in taking profits when we have them. Therefore we offer this recommendation.
Recommendation to Consider:
Sell Half your holdings of Osisko Gold Royalties Ltd (OR) at $11.40 per share or better.
