Pinetree Capital Cycles
The following graphics paint a very clear picture of where Pinetree Capital is right now. The previous cycles show up and down cycles of roughly 8 quarters pretty much uninterrupted. Just look at how momentum takes over when a corner is turned. Whether history repeats and whether we will see another 8 quarters of an virtually uninterrupted up cycle remains to be seen. However, definitely something to keep in mind in case the resource sector will be gaining momentum again.

Currently Pinetree Capital’s NAV has reached values of 77c for Oct 31 and 70c for Nov 30.
Another issue has been the debentures, Pinetree capital was in default and has bought back some and the interest has increased to 10%. So, if things turn down this issue may come back again. But on the other hand you cannot expect everything to be rosy when a stock hits new lows.
During December Pinetree has made investments in the following companies: Coro(T-COP), Augusta(V-AAO) and Integra Gold(V-ICG).
