from Dan Norcini:
Once upon a time in the West, We Dig It UP Mining, hedged or forward sold some of its expected gold production in order to mitigate price risk and to ensure that it captured reasonable profits on at least part of its production.
Then came the bull market in gold starting in 2001. We Dig It Up was nonplussed to say the least when it saw what its competitors’ stock prices were doing while the price of gold was rising. Theirs’ were exploding higher while its was languishing. As a matter of fact, New Kid on the Block Mining was bragging about its disdain for hedging while We Dig It Up Mining spend most of its stockholder meetings explaining why it was engaging in this obsolete strategy.
