Stowe, VT, October 12, 2010 – Casey Research, a leader in providing in-depth, independent analysis of high-growth investment opportunities, announced today Casey’s NextTen, the next generation of leaders in the natural resource industry.
Successful investors, like Casey Research founder Doug Casey, have long recognized that there are no more important considerations when investing than the people. For years, Casey Research has helped its subscribers succeed by closely following the careers of the most successful explorers in the industry, those top few percent who consistently generate the majority of returns for shareholders.
And now, it is proud to present the next generation of industry leaders to keep a close eye on — the top 10 up-and-coming resource stars 40 years and under who are already demonstrating a strong track record in innovation, exploration, and financing – Casey’s NexTen.
“There is no question that when following the right people, the resource sector can be an extremely lucrative place to invest,” said Marin Katusa, chief energy investment strategist, Casey Research. “Over his 40 years of investing, our founder Doug Casey noticed a pattern emerge that a mere 4 percent of the entrepreneurs in the resource sector came up with over 64 percent of the wins. That is why we concentrate our efforts on finding and investing with that 4 percent.”
Over the past five years, Casey’s team of analysts have met with company heads and geologists to get to know them in the office and in the field. Using Casey’s 8Ps investment methodology – People (the most important of all), Project, Politics, Paper, Promotion, Phinancing, Push, and Price – they were able to identify the next generation of professionals who will unlock some of the huge gains waiting in the resource sector.
