Fundstrat Global Advisors, the research firm known for its bullish Bitcoin bets, is at it again with the second forecast in a week leading up to one of the world’s biggest cryptocurrency conferences.

One Bitcoin could be worth around $36,000 by the end of 2019, Fundstrat’s Sam Doctor wrote in a report for clients Thursday, noting that the value of the top digital token could range from $20,000 to $64,000. It traded around $9,300 on Thursday. The researcher’s call was based in part on the notion that improving cryptocurrency mining economics support price appreciation.

“Bitcoin miners verify and process transactions, supporting the network in exchange for mining rewards and transaction fees,” Fundstrat said. “We argue that the Price/Miner’s Breakeven Cost multiple has proven a reliable long-term support level, and further, that the likely trajectory of future mining infrastructure growth should underpin Bitcoin price appreciation into year-end 2019.”

Top Low Price Stocks To Own Right Now

Franco-Nevada Corporation (NYSE:FNV) is a gold streaming company that operates in the niche precious metals industry, which includes fellow giants Wheaton Precious Metals (NYSE:WPM) and Royal Gold, Inc. (NASDAQ:RGLD). While it’s the youngest of this gold and silver streaming stock trio, it’s also the biggest. However, relative size isn’t the only factor that separates Franco-Nevada from the pack. Here’s what investors need to know before buying its stock.

What Franco-Nevada does

Franco-Nevada’s core business is gold streaming. Simply put, it provides cash up front to miners in exchange for the right to buy gold, silver, and other commodities at reduced rates in the future.

Miners like streaming deals because they provide access to capital beyond the traditional bank, stock, and bond market sources that most companies rely on to finance their businesses. When times are tough for miners, like during commodity downturns, streaming deals can be an important lifeline to reduce debt and/or support spending on key projects. Franco-Nevada likes streaming and royalty deals because they lock in low prices for gold and silver. That provides the company with wide margins in both good markets and, perhaps more important, bad ones.
