Mark Lackey, chief investment strategist with Pope & Company, sees particular promise among small-cap gold equities in West Africa. Burkina Faso and Mali offer good topography and stable, democratically elected governments with little interest in economic nationalism. Given Lackey’s view that gold will float between $1,600 and $1,800/ounce this year, he says in this exclusive Gold Report interview that now might be a good time for investors to look to Africa for upside potential.

Write a journal entry talking about what you did today. Did you have breakfast? What was it? Was it good? What is your favorite breakfast of all time? What was the worst?

Even though I’m pushing 60, I know I could still start and prosper as a pro athlete, but I’m not taking the bait. If any NFL team or the PGA were to call, I would have to immediately decline any and all offers. Sure, I’d be grateful and gracious about it, but I can’t risk having my name attached to lurid scandals. It’s just not who I am.
