Sean Brodrick

Sean travels far and wide to seek out small-cap values in the natural resource sector.

His journey started in New England. As a youth he worked on Mt. Washington, on the cog railroad that runs to the summit. Working on the coal-fired, steam-powered trains was hard work but it was also incredible fun, and perfect for someone with an interest in the great outdoors and heavy machinery.

He graduated college with a journalism degree, and experienced the Internet boom and bust firsthand as the personal finance website he worked for suffered a spectacular flameout. The experience of being dumped on the curb with a handful of useless stock options gave him an appreciation for real assets, something he followed up when he joined Weiss Research as an analyst.

Sean left Weiss to become the investment director of the Sovereign Society, the world’s leading publisher of offshore asset protection strategies and global investment. But eventually, Dr. Weiss lured Sean back by promising he could do anything he wanted. What Sean wanted to do was cover natural resources … especially the little-known, undervalued foreign stocks he picked as likely to ride the next wave of the commodity supercycle.

Sean’s travels have taken him from diamond fields north of the Arctic Circle … to a gold project in Argentina … to an ancient city of mummies and silver … to a wild patch of mountains in Alaska where gold flakes still wash down crystal-cold streams.

Now, Sean contributes regularly Uncommon Wisdom Daily’s Morning Edition and Afternoon Edition e-letters. His special reports on precious metals, energy, agriculture and more have gathered accolades from investors and industry insiders alike. And his book, “The Ultimate Suburban Survivalist Guide”, which helps prepares readers for all sorts of physical and economic crises, hit Amazon.com’s best-seller list.

Sean is a biweekly guest on one of Canada’s premier financial websites, HoweStreet.com, and from time to time he makes appearances on various U.S. radio and TV news programs. He contributes to Dow Jones MarketWatch.
