  • Get Exposure to Precious Metals Prices While Minimizing the Risk

    By John Park - July 19, 2013 | Tickers: RGLD, SAND, SLW

    Investing in gold and silver mining stocks is not for the faint-hearted, and it has been especially unprofitable during the last few years with the collapse in the share price of precious metals prices. With the bloodbath come potential opportunities, however, and investors looking to bet on a rebound in precious metals prices can significantly reduce their investment risk by focusing on precious metals royalty companies.

  • Could This Royalty Company Turn It Around in 2013?

    By Lior Cohen - June 27, 2013 | Tickers: ABX, GG, RGLD, GLD

    Shares of Royal Gold (NASDAQ: RGLD), much like many other gold stocks, haven’t performed well during 2013 (up to date) as they tumbled by more than 35%. Nonetheless, Royal Gold’s business model is different than other gold companies as it relies on royalty payments from precious metal miners; this type of business model lowers the company’s risk compared to the risk that gold producers face. Will Royal more »

  • Will Gold Recover from its Recent Decline?

    By Lior Cohen - May 17, 2013 | Tickers: GG, PPP, RGLD, GLD

    The ongoing tumble in the price of gold in recent weeks has dragged along with it gold-related investments, such as gold producers and the SPDR Gold Shares (NYSEMKT: GLD). Will gold rally from its recent decline? Will gold producers’ stocks recover from their downward trend? Let’s examine the recent developments in the gold market to find out.

  • Is Value Emerging in These Gold Miners?

    By Jacob Wolinsky - May 6, 2013 | Tickers: ANV, NEM, RGLD

    The sell-off in gold must still be fresh in investors minds as it had a significant bearing on the stock market, as well. The price of the precious metal was down close to 8% in April. The Cyprus-inflicted panic substantially shaved the valuations in gold mining firms, such as Allied Nevada Gold (NYSEMKT: ANV)Royal Gold (NASDAQ: RGLD), and Newmont Mining (NYSE: NEM), which begs the question -- is this is more »

  • Is the Golden Era of Gold Over?

    By Lior Cohen - April 24, 2013 | Tickers: GG, RGLD, GLD

    The sharp fall in the price of gold in recent days took many investors and analysts by surprise. I’ll admit that the plunge in the prices for precious metals was surprising, and I didn’t think gold would fall so promptly.

    Nonetheless, I thought the price of gold would have started its descent when the market adjusts to the Fed’s change in monetary policy (assuming it will change more »

  • Is it Time to Sell Gold?

    By Lior Cohen - March 29, 2013 | Tickers: ABX, GG, RGLD, GLD

    The gold market has cooled down in the past year and half. The belief that gold will always go up persists. Is it still worth investing in gold? Let’s see if it’s time to change this common belief about this precious metal.

    To that end, let’s check several different gold investments and view their performances during the past year, their outlooks in the near future, and the more »

  • Dig Less to Profit More in Mining

    By Ken McGaha - March 20, 2013 | Tickers: RGLD, SLW

    Investing in mining tends to be a very dangerous game for stock investors. Producing mines normally carry high valuations and are subject to all sorts of unexpected cost overruns. Exploration companies tend to be hard to evaluate and much better at raising money than they are at raising metals from the ground. However, due to the potential astronomical returns, many people will risk their investment capital hoping against hope to more »

  • More to Gold Miners Than Falling Knives

    By Jacob Wolinsky - March 20, 2013 | Tickers: ANV, GSS, RGLD

    Precious metal stocks have sorely underperformed the U.S. equity markets over the last year or so. GLD, which tracks the price of physical gold, had negative returns of 5 percent over the last year.

    The decline has been even stronger in the last six months, during which the fund lost more than 10%. Reasons behind this fall are not difficult to track; with the equities boom in major markets more »

  • Gold Miners: Will They Repeat 20% Returns This Time?

    By Shweta Dubey - March 7, 2013 | Tickers: BHP, NEM, RGLD

    Given skyrocketing gold prices, you can happily invest in the stocks of gold mining companies without ever buying an ounce of gold. Since 1985, gold mining companies have achieved a strong growth of around 20% after every election year. And after disappointing returns in the past year, these miners' stocks are trading at relatively low values, thus creating a good entry point for the new investors. Therefore, I see a more »

  • Get a lot for a little with Seabridge Gold

    By Ken McGaha - March 1, 2013 | Tickers: ABX, RGLD, SA

    How would you feel if someone offered to sell you $100 worth of minerals for $0.54?  I know, if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.  Well, probably is not exactly the same thing as always and today you are going to learn how to do exactly that.  Okay, maybe not exactly that; it could actually be better than that!  Based upon current pricing, Seabridge Gold more »

  • What Could Impede This Gold Company?

    By Lior Cohen - February 6, 2013 | Tickers: ABX, GG, RGLD, AUY

    Royal Gold (NASDAQ: RGLD) has been showing solid numbers in terms of profit margins and revenues growth: as of the third quarter of 2012, the company's revenues rose by 21% and its operating earnings by 27.6%. The company's operating margin was 61%. These impressive numbers were noticed as shares of the company rose by 20.66% during last year. Nevertheless, this rally might reach a halt in more »

  • Victoria Gold Corp: A Sleeping Giant Waits

    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 »

  • Is the Big Gold Rally Behind Us?

    By Lior Cohen - January 10, 2013 | Tickers: ABX, GG, RGLD, GLD

    The spike in the price of gold between 2008 and 2011 seems to have taken a turn in the past year and a half and slowed down. In 2012 the price of gold rose by only 3.7%. Many investors still have gold or gold equivalent investments including gold royalties companies such as Royal Gold (NASDAQ: RGLD), gold producers such as Barrick Gold Corporation (NYSE: ABX), or gold ETF such more »

  • Choosing a Gold Company

    By Lior Cohen - December 20, 2012 | Tickers: ABX, GG, PPP, RGLD, AUY

    In recent years, many investors added to their portfolio precious metals as a safe haven investment. Assuming you have already decided to include a gold related investment in your portfolio, you will need to decide whether you wish to invest in gold or a gold company (e.g. a royalties company, gold producer, etc). Investing in gold could include a gold ETF, such as SPDR Gold Shares, the largest gold more »

  • Will Gold Rise As The Fed Expands QE3?

    By Lior Cohen - December 13, 2012 | Tickers: ABX, GG, RGLD, GLD

    Since the launch of QE3 by the FOMC back in September, the price of gold declined. Many had expected this program, much like previous programs, will increase prices of precious metals, because it may weaken the US dollar, and raise the inflationary pressures. Will the recent decision of the FOMC to expand QE3 pull up the prices of precious metals in the months to follow? Let’s examine this issue more »

  • Choosing Between Gold and Silver

    By Lior Cohen - December 7, 2012 | Tickers: ABX, SLV, RGLD, SLW, GLD

    In recent years, many investors have added precious metals to their portfolio for various reasons including hedging in case of inflation or a sharp devaluation of the dollar against other leading currencies. Despite the strong relation between gold and silver, they haven't performed the same. Moreover, silver and gold companies differ from one another in certain aspects. Let’s compare between silver and gold and between gold and silver more »

  • Why Isn’t Gold Pulling Up?

    By Lior Cohen - November 19, 2012 | Tickers: ABX, RGLD, GLD

    Gold and major precious metals companies haven’t performed well in recent weeks, and the decision by the FOMC to launch another quantitative easing didn’t seem to help. Let’s examine the recent developments related to the gold market, try and break down what might have held back gold from rising, and see what is next for gold.

    Despite the launch of QE3 back in mid-September 2012, the price more »

  • Does The Rise of Gold Help the Profitability of Gold Producers?

    By Lior Cohen - November 6, 2012 | Tickers: ABX, GG, RGLD, GLD

    The price of gold rose during the third quarter of 2012. It’s very intuitive to assume that the rise in price of gold will pull up the profit margin of major gold producers. Let’s examine the recent third quarter financial reports of the major gold producer and try to figure out what’s up ahead for the gold producers in the near future; let’s also see how more »
