Rubicon Resources, now aiming to find gold and base metals in Turkey, has been added to the PortfolioDirect model explorers portfolio. PortfolioDirect is a stock rating and investment advisory service offered by E.I.M. Capital Managers to financial planners and investors directly managing their own equity portfolios. Rubicon Resources was reviewed in the most recent PortfolioDirect weekly investment report. For good reasons, exploration companies are regarded as the riskiest end of a risky sector but substantial value can be created through the application of the relevant technical skills. Rubicon measures up well on the PortfolioDirect 10-point screening framework for exploration companies which highlights the potential for a market reappraisal of the likely size or quality of an anticipated resource as the most important investment driver.
