    By Chris Johnson - August 16, 2013 | Tickers: GG, IAG, KGC

    With the much talked about headwinds faced by the companies in the gold mining sector, the debate continues as to whether investing in a top gold grosser is still a worthwhile idea.

    By Shmulik Karpf - June 27, 2013 | Tickers: ABX, KGC, NCMGY.PK

    Warren Buffett, the Sage of Omaha, once said: "It's only when the tide goes out that you learn who's been swimming naked." The interesting thing about the markets is that there's always a "tide" in some market. That's why it's crucial to make sure that you're not "swimming" in that particular market. I believe that the current "tide" we are witnessing is the tide more »

    By Jaiyant Cavale - June 11, 2013 | Tickers: AIG, AUQ, IAG, KGC

    Gold has always had this image of being a stable investment option. That it either increases in value or remains stable and that it is never a bad idea to invest in some gold. That may not always be true, if we consider how gold prices have moved back and forth like a pendulum recently. Gold stocks, meanwhile, are directly or indirectly influenced by gold prices and make for similar more »

    By Mike Thiessen - May 29, 2013 | Tickers: ABX, GG, KGC

    Toronto-based mining giant Barrick Gold (NYSE: ABX) has not had a very good start to the year.

Recently, the company announced that it would be suspending production at a supposedly lucrative mine in Chile due to a politically more »

    By John Timmes - May 24, 2013 | Tickers: ABX, KGC, NEM, GLD

  • Looking for High Dividend Growth Stocks? Head North

    By Bob Ciura - May 22, 2013 | Tickers: KGC, POT, SU

    Investors tend to pigeon-hole themselves, with a tendency to focus exclusively on stocks domiciled in the United States. Some may be wary of diversifying their equity holdings internationally, due to a slew of geopolitical headline risks that seem to resurface every few months or so.

    Fortunately for investors, you don’t need to buy stocks from across the world that you’ve never heard of, nor do you need to more »

  • This Investor Has Been Focusing on the Metals Market; A Look Back

    By Meena Krishnamsetty - April 30, 2013 | Tickers: AU, ABX, KGC, SWC, VGZ

    As its name implies, Sun Valley Gold—at least on the equity side—is concentrated on the precious metals market, in companies related to mining, producing and refining. Unfortunately for the fund, a 13F portfolio with nearly all its positions tied to metals most likely hasn’t done too well of late, as metals prices have dropped to 2+ year lows. Of course, 13F filings from the SEC only indicate more »

    By Josh Ginsburg - February 2, 2013 | Tickers: ABX, CS, FNV, JPM, KGC, RGLD

    I'll be the first to admit that I am a believer in the long term value of gold and silver. In a US economy that's continuing to grow ever more unstable and vulnerable, one can infer with substantial historical reference that intrinsic value is continuing to shift progressively more into hard assets. In terms of the long term value of gold I think most readers will agree that more »
