Rick Rule, from Sprott Inc., has a fairly bleak outlook for metals prices, but much less bleak outlook for metals equities.

He blames forward shifting demand by artificially reducing the cost of capital as our response to economic slowdowns by way of quantitative easing. What he calls the ‘great unspoken sin’.
