There's a very good chance of a quadruple from here, but it won't be fast or easy. If you can hold on into 2016, the gains from here should be spectacular. If you can't hang on while ANV goes to $2 or even $1.50 (and gold to $900-1000/oz) before it moves up to $15-20/share, then you are playing into the momentum traders' hands. I'm not saying either ANV or gold will go that low before a rebound, but it might. So it's not "easy", but yes a quadruple from here is likely within 3 years, IMO.
I second this advice (and think the same advice could be applied to many miners right now). I personally am trying to find any miner that can quickly double at their currently distressed PPS, then sell half the shares at that point, and hold onto the rest for a long-term investment.
Since market makers have already pushed many miners back to year lows (even with gold still over $1300), I think it's with a belief that gold's ready to rise, not decline further, and that they just want to accumulate at best possible prices. And since estimates for most bank profits are being lowered for Q3, I expect that any possible "taper" in October is already off the table... Expect unemployment counts to start to go up so the FED can use that as their BS reason to keep going forward with QE.
