Investors are bombarded these days with new indices and ETF's on virtually all kinds of different mixes of the same information. Most have similar performance levels and must be rather confusing to most investors.

We at Precious Metals Warrants have our own index (PMWI) for which we just completed our analysis for 2006. You will find no other index similar to ours, guaranteed. Currently, this index is our own proprietary index and cannot be bought and is being reported only on a yearly basis, last year 2005 being the first year.

What is REALLY happening in the precious metals sector? If you are a subscriber to our service you will not be surprised. For others, the results below will be astonishing, unbelievable, but they are nevertheless 100% accurate.

The PMWI is calculated by including only the warrants outstanding at the end of each year, i.e., outstanding for the previous 12 months.

There are many indexes and most are rather obscure, but one of them is changing the way investors look at investing in the precious metals mining sector. It is #1 on the list below -the proprietary Precious Metals Warrants Index (Composite). We currently count 65 companies in the precious metals mining business offering warrants which are trading in the United States and Canada (in addition to their common stock) and they are now regularly tracked, analyzed and published by PreciousMetalsWarrants.com. Included in our database of warrants but not included in the PMWI are 18 energy, oil & gas, coal and uranium companies with warrants.

In February 2006, we first presented the PMWI and its performance for 2005 was an awesome 51.4% and the #1 performing index for 2005. See our website for this article.

The performance for the year 2006 has exceeded even our expectations with an unbelievable 183.5%. The numbers do not lie. This is over 3 times the performance of other indices and funds below.

Investors should not count on their brokers, analysts, or newsletters to alert them to the opportunities presented by warrants. We are finding most analysts to be behind the learning curve with respect to warrants. All we can assert is the numbers do not lie and we would suggest you consider buying a broad basket of warrants for your portfolio today to position yourself for the unfolding bull market in precious metals.

Remember - in 2006 a complete basket of precious metals warrants realized an outstanding 183.5% increase over 2005 (and 51.4% over 2004). What are you waiting for? Such gains are what ever portfolio needs! Got Gold? Got Warrants? Don't delay!
