Invest Resourcefully: Exploring the Natural Resources Rebound – VanEck – 3.20.18


Now On Demand.

Natural resources have undergone dramatic swings over the last several years. Commodity prices were held at bay as producers oversupplied markets and generated high levels of debt. Then in 2016, the sector began to shift. After several rounds of capital expenditure reductions, natural resource equities are now focusing on efficient capital allocation, cash flow generation, and developing the next best-in-class technologies to aid in low-cost extraction.

In this webcast, we will discuss:

  • Macroeconomic factors impacting natural resources and commodities
  • Restructuring in the energy and metal & mining sectors
  • Outlook for metals & mining and energy companies
  • Portfolio allocation and stock selection
