Hommel Bio: I was born in April, 1970. I grew
up alpine ski racing in Lake Tahoe, California. In
college I was on the alpine race team at the University
of Colorado - Boulder. Lesson learned: hard work and
study of your sport pays off with spectacular success.
graduated in 1994 with a B.A. in Psychology. I was
most interested in Sports Psychology and Business
Psychology. My other interest was Philosophy.
1996-97, I was assistant manager of Healthy Habits
Restaurant for a year and a half. Lesson learned:
Be careful of who you work for. It's best to work
1997-99, I started an online marketing business that
was lucrative. Lessons learned: Targeted marketing
& giving people what they want works best.
enough money to take time off in 1998, I began personal
& intensive Bible study using search engines and
available online commentaries & concordances.
I soon created Bibleprophesy.org over the next several
years. I believe this site presents the most comprehensive
discussion, and the best explanation and defense,
of the pre-tribulation rapture to be found online.
Lesson learned: Many people don't care at all about
truth. They care far more about justifying their own
beliefs and decisions. I also learned how to argue
1999, I also began to study gold, silver, money, and
the precious metals market including silver and gold
stocks. Soon I began to work for my father, giving
him investment advice and helping to manage his portfolio.
It was slow going at first, as I was early to invest
in silver and gold, (right at the beginning of the
bottom of the gold market), but I managed to learn
a lot about the industry and about investing in those
first three years from 1999 to 2001.
From Jan 2002 to Dec. 2002, my investment picks (gold
and silver stocks) were up an average of 153%. (Which,
at the time, were DROOY, HMY GFI, SSRI, PAAS, &
believe my bible study background gives me a unique
perspective to help people in these critical times.
In college, I know that they teach students the latest
theories and explanations of the mind, space, and
evolution. But science has abandoned God in the fields
of astronomy, geology, & psychology. Better theories
and explanations for observable phenomenon in the
world and space can be found from Christian based
scientists. And the best explanations for the condition
of man come from the Bible, not the field of Psychology.
business classes and economics courses it is the same.
They teach the latest fashionable theories of the
day, primarily trying to justify the current economic
system which is based on frauds such as the paper
dollar, fractional reserve banking, the futures markets,
& derivatives. They have abandoned true knowledge
that comes from the Bible, that man must use "just
weights and measures" when conducting trade,
and that unjust weights and measures are an abomination.
silver (and other precious metal) investors have much
in common with students of the Bible. Both are engaged
in a diligent search for the truth about wealth.
The complete absence of major media coverage of silver
and silver stocks in 2003, and even all through 2004,
was shocking. My list of over 80 silver stocks gained
an average of 314% for 2003 from Jan 1 to Dec. 31.
Here's how I did on my best picks during 2003:
bought shares of a tiny silver stock at $0.11 Cdn
/ share in June, 2003. By December, 2003 it traded
at $1.73 Cdn / share, for a gain of 1473%! That stock
was Canadian Zinc (CZN.TO).
also bought shares of another silver stock, in which
the owner had an aggressive plan to acquire more silver
properties at distressed prices, at $0.55 US in June,
2003. By December, 2003, it traded at $10/share, for
a gain of 1718%! That stock was Sterling Mining (SRLM.PK).
silver mine property co-owner walked away from his
10% interest in a silver property, due to low silver
prices. His business partner with 90% interest soon
owned everything! I was late in buying this one at
about $1.50 in Jan, 2003. However, by December, 2003,
it traded at $8.10/share, for a gain of 440%! That
stock was Mines Management (MGN).
of these companies acquired their silver properties
from previous owners who failed to see the potential
of owning a silver property.
2004 was a rough year. Silver stocks are, on average,
down 10%. Some worse than others. But how did I do
in 2004 on my top three holdings in my portfolio?
I can't yet list the names, but here's a summary.
For my largest holding, I bought in a private placement
at $1.25/share. By 2005, it was trading in a range
from $4-6/share, not too bad--gains of several hundred
my second largest holding, I bought in a private placement
at $.20/share. By 2005, it was trading in a range
from $.70-.95, again, not bad--gains of several hundred
my third largest holding, I bought in a private placement
at $1.00/share. It has traded as high as $3, and is
very cheap again at $1.50 by Feb., 2005--especially
since zinc prices have risen so much!
enough, my top three holdings are also my best performers
in my portfolio for all of 2004. But better than that,
my top three holdings were, at one time, the very
best performers of all 80 silver stocks on my list!
I truly believe I've been blessed by God to achieve
such an outstanding performance. I won't list what
companies these are yet, because that information
is currently reserved for paying subscribers who buy
the "look at my portfolio".

beautiful wife, Shanna. She is so dedicated to the
Lord Jesus Christ and her family. She is such an inspiration.
She works tirelessly, endlessly, taking care of 4
boys: 3 from her previous marriage, and me! Inspired
by her example, I, in the fall of 2003, began working

stocks up 314%
Silver itself is up about 100% from a low of about
$4.15 in 2003 to a high of about $8.40 in spring 2004.

not despair if you feel you do not understand money
very well. Not many people do. It is a sad fact of
the modern education system that they can teach kids
to count and even do calculus, but they do not teach
kids to balance a check book. They do not teach the
power of compound interest (but leave that to the
life insurance salesman). They do not teach the power
of savings, nor do they teach the danger of debt at
did the Silver Stock Report begin?
I initially became an investor to manage family money
and to insure that I would actually have an inheritance.
Through that process, I started writing articles to
share my knowledge online.
currently earn a living in three ways.
First, I offer a monthly look at my personal portfolio
via a monthly subscription. Do you want to know more
precisely where my money is? Want to know which are
my largest holdings? Want to know which silver stocks
I most recently purchased last month? I'll tell you!
The monthly "look at my portfolio" shows
whether a stock is over 9%, or below, or below 6%,
3%, or 1%. I also discuss a few of the recent trades
I earn finder's fees from private stock placements.
What is a private placement? It's like an IPO (initial
public offering), but it's not public, and the opportunities
are generally only available to accredited and sophisticated
investors. I have a small email list of people who
are interested in these privately available opportunities.
I make a "finder's fee" if they buy stock.
Keep in mind that this is not a general solicitation
for any company. You should already have a specialized
knowledge of silver and silver stocks, and be an accredited
and sophisticated investor (willing to certify that
you either have a substantial income of over USD $250,000
per year, or have over USD $1,000,000 in assets) in
order to participate.
silver mining companies use the proceeds from private
placements to buy silver properties, to explore for
silver, to determine where to drill, to retrieve drill
samples, to study the results, to determine if it
is feasible to build a mine, and then to maintain
a mining operation.
my biggest income generator is a rather large portfolio
of physical silver and silver stocks. My portfolio
goes up in value as silver goes up in price. The capital
appreciation is orders of magnitude greater than the
finder's fees and the subscriptions. So, perhaps years
from now, I may be selling silver bullion and silver
stocks directly. Today, I may buy and sell silver
stocks at any time. When I do trade, however, I generally
sell one silver stock for another, and remain fully
invested in the silver sector.
note that I am not a bullion dealer. To get bullion,
I suggest you contact your local dealer by looking
one up in your local telephone book. I also suggest
you pay in cash (or check), and take physical possession
of your metal yourself. Later, if you want to place
larger orders that your local dealer cannot fill right
away, you might want to consider placing an order
via the internet. For a very comprehensive Frequently

others about money and the current monetary system.
