Forget $100 Oil, Sprott Star Hedge Fund Manger – Jean-Francois Tardif – Calls For $200 Oil, Higher Gold and More US Sub-Prime Pain

JF Tardif

It wasn’t long ago that calls for $100 oil were looked upon as simply “wild” predictions of analysts looking to garner attention. Maybe we should have paid closer attention and profited from those crazy turned reality predictions. In case you didn’t, you have a chance to redeem yourself because oil – according to Jean-Francois (AKA “JF”) Tardif – is going to $200.

Now, before you go making the same mistake all over again and call JF another analyst looking for attention, you might first want to consider the fact that Barron’s just ranked his Sprott Opportunities Fund as the #18 Hedge Fund on the planet.

In addition, he was recently awarded “Best Canada Based Manager” at the HFM US Performance Awards.

JF is a renowned and very successful Senior Fund Manager with Sprott Asset Management. He achieved his prestigious ranking and award thanks to his performance with the Sprott Opportunities Hedge Fund where he posted average annual cumulative returns of more than 33% over the past 3 years. As such, when Jean-Francois Tardif speaks, you probably want to hear what he has to say.

Fortunately, you can listen to our interview with him via our newly launched content partnership with – the AGORACOM Small-Cap Energy and Resources HUB. (I know, that’s a doozy unto itself but I’ll talk about that later). In the interview, he discussed the global supply squeeze taking place in both oil and gold, as well as, why he sees even more sub-prime pain for the US in 2008 (Hint: You may not want to be walking on Wall Street in May 2008).

In case you are reading this post well after November 9th, 2007, you can also find the interview archived on our industry leading Podcast site –

See you at $200.
