This Says Our Favorite Biotech Is Off to the Races

Shares of a promising biotech we recommended back in February 2013 – jumped as much as 27% to a three-month high of $14.20 yesterday after the company said a new cancer drug met its main goal in a midstage clinical trial.

Its shares backtracked a bit as the day progressed but still closed 17.6% higher for the session. These shares have advanced 361% since we first told you about them. The stock has generated a peak gain of 456%, making it one of the 31 recommendations we’ve made to you that have doubled or better since we launched Private Briefing in August 2011.

  • 2013 Gold Price Forecast: Expect Gold to Deliver Another Record-Setting Year No two bull markets are ever the same, and gold is no exception.

    During the last secular gold bull market in the 1970s, gold rose from $35 in 1968 all the way to $200 by late 1974.

    Then the unthinkable happened. Between late 1974 and mid-1976, gold prices were cut in half, dropping from about $200 to $100.

    At the time, many gold investors sold out in disgust, never to return.

    But then a funny thing occurred. Gold prices started to climb again, rising from $100 in mid-1976 all the way to $800 by January 1980.

    And anyone who was fortunate enough to own gold at $35 earned better than 20 times their investment in just 12 years.

    Twenty-one years later, a new bull market began. Since 2001, gold has consistently performed in what now appears to be a record-setting run.

    2013 gold price forecast

    In fact, since 2001 the average return on gold is now just shy of 18% annually over the last 11 years.

    I know of no other major asset that has turned in this kind of performance -- ever. This rise in gold prices is simply unmatched.

    This is what a stealth bull market looks like, one that I fully expect will keep powering on.

    Now, let's have a look at where gold prices might be headed in 2013...

  • The "Two Outlooks" for Gold Prices One of the best parts of my job is when I hear back from you.

    And two recent columns in particular on gold generated a larger-than-normal response.

    The comments were related to the two-parter on gold prices that we published on Nov. 5 ("The Secret Gold Standard") and Nov. 13 ("Why Obama's Victory Means Higher Gold Prices").

    Let's take a look at what you had to say.

    The comments related to the "Secret Gold Standard" column were especially intriguing because a number of you thought I was advocating a literal return to the "gold standard."

    I wasn't, of course. I employed the term as a convenient metaphor to try and help folks understand how the world's central banks were adding gold reserves for the first time in nearly a quarter century.

    In fact, a global return to the gold standard isn't possible - there literally isn't enough gold to allow that to happen. It would crimp money-supply growth in such a way that global economic growth would be stymied.

    A number of you wrote in to make that same point - including one reader who actually performed all the necessary calculations to make his case.

    Al K. wrote in to ask: "Some analysts believe gold will drop further & others believe gold has bottomed out now. What do the experts of Money Morning believe?"

    Since Al requested an "expert" opinion - a fair request - I put in a call to Chief Investment Strategist Keith Fitz-Gerald.

    The Outlook For Gold Prices

    Right now, Keith explained, there are two separate outlooks for gold - one for the near-term and another for the longer-term.
