Noront, Deal of a Lifetime

Noront spiked today, yet again.

McFauld's Lake, McNugget, it's all McEwen. Robert McEwen is is scooping up in shares and warrants in both Noront (NOT.v) and McDonalds (BMK.v). In the case of NOT, he gets shares at $4, plus warrants at $5.

After the BMK announcement was made last October, the shares jumped to over $1, to then drop to the current $0.60. Perhaps the same will happen with NOT, which spiked up today and made many here happy.

My approach with these is to keep a small core position and keep trading in and out to reduce the ACB. So far, so good, I have likely reduce ACB by about 50%. The stocks are highly speculative and you get many chances to get in and out. Other holdings in the area: FWR.V and FNC.V


Each unit was priced at $4.00 and consists of one common share and one-half of one common share purchase warrant. Each whole warrant entitles the holder to purchase one common share of Noront at an exercise price of $5.00 for a period of two years from the date of issue.
