Gold Stocks

Gold stocks are a speculative stock market sector specifically dealing with publicly traded gold miners and exploration companies. They fall under the category of risk-capital equity securities and, because their underlying businesses are based on a resource commodity, are mostly considered to be speculative.

Up until recently, gold stocks have been good performers on the stock market, following the spot price of gold commensurately. The current market for gold stocks is subdued due to the significant price consolidation taking place in the gold market. In addition, higher production costs on an industry-wide basis have made profitability more difficult for many gold mining companies.

Gold stocks come in all sizes and market capitalizations. Some large-cap gold miners offer shareholders quarterly dividends. Many micro-cap explorations companies are just that; they raise money to explore for gold and then come back to raise additional money if they find the precious metal in sufficient deposits to warrant building a mine.

The rationale given for this argument generally includes the sentiment that interest rates are going higher…. Read More

Three Events Driving Gold Prices Higher in 2015Federal Reserve, ECB, China to Drive Gold Prices Upward in 2015
Uncertainty and fear are two of the biggest factors that move gold prices. If they increase, investors buy the yellow metal to hedge and protect their wealth. Going into 2015, I see these two factors coming into play and taking the precious metal’s prices higher.
At the very core, I am watching three events that will bring uncertainty and fear going into next year:

  1. The Federal Reserve’s move towards normalizing monetary policy and raising interest rates
  2. Problems in the eurozone and the European Central Bank’s quantitative easing
  3. China
  4. Read More
