  • Will The Gold Market Continue to Heat Up?

    By Lior Cohen - August 19, 2013 | Tickers: GG, GLD, AUY

    The gold market has started to recover in the past several weeks: During August, the price of gold rose by 4.5%. This rally may have positively affected gold producer’s stock such as Goldcorp (NYSE: GG): Share of the company rose by 17.9% during the past month. Will gold price continue to rise? Is it time to reconsider investing in gold and gold producers?

  • 3 Undervalued Gold Miners Poised to Take Advantage of The Rebound In Gold

    By Matt Smith - July 24, 2013 | Tickers: ABX, EGO, AUY

    The sharp correction in the gold price since the start of 2013 has seen gold miners fall into disfavor with investors, with many of the major miners touching new 52 week lows. Already for the year to date, the Gold Bugs Index -- which measures the performance of the 30 largest gold miners -- has plunged 43%. As a result, there are a number of potential bargains now hidden in the gold more »

    By Lior Cohen - July 17, 2013 | Tickers: NEM, GLD, AUY

    Gold and leading gold ETF SPDR Gold (NYSEMKT: GLD) have recently rallied, but they haven’t performed well during most of the year: During 2013, the price of gold declined by 23%; the price of the ETF fell by 22.9%. Moreover, SPDR Gold's hoard plummeted by more than 30%. Is gold making a comeback? Is it time to reconsider investing in this precious metal or gold companies?

  • Is Now Really the Time to Be a Contrarian?

    By Joshua Bondy - July 8, 2013 | Tickers: ABX, NEM, AUY

    Every investor strives to be a contrarian; the individual who can see the wisdom and the folly of the crowd for what it is. The contrarian message usually gets watered down to the idea of simply doing the opposite of what everyone is doing. The gold market is one place where it is extremely dangerous to blindly follow a watered-down contrarian message. Just because gold prices and the stock prices more »

  • A Distraction From My Dividend Growth Investing Strategy

    By Michael Weber - June 25, 2013 | Tickers: ABX, GG, IAG, AUY

    I am a dividend growth investor. I like to buy dividend paying companies with long track records of increasing dividends and strong competitive advantages. I look for higher than average dividend growth and a steadily increasing stream of income. Oh, and I also only like to buy when the stock is quite undervalued. This criterion has me waiting for prices to drop a lot of the time. I like to more »

  • Gold Dividends Unsafe

    By Rupert Hargreaves - June 14, 2013 | Tickers: ABX, GG, NEM, AUY

    Gold miners are not known for their shareholder returns. In fact, miners are often criticized for not returning enough cash to shareholders, choosing instead to spend their income on expensive capital projects.

    That said, recently miners have changed course and are now offering dividends to shareholders but with some of these yields touching 4-5%, they are way above the market average.

    Can they afford it?

  • Time to Buy That Falling Golden Knife?

    By Joshua Bondy - April 21, 2013 | Tickers: ABX, FCX, AUY

    The world of gold is quite lively these days. Sudden mine closures and falling gold prices are causing havoc in the market. Gold is a safe-haven, a place of security that people look to in times of political and financial upheaval. Until another disaster strikes, gold's prospects look rather dim.

  • Gold Miners Are Hitting Deep Value Territory: Here Are Five Cheap Miners for Your Watch List

    By Brendan O'Boyle - April 15, 2013 | Tickers: ABX, GG, NEM, GOLD, AUY

    Gold mining is a tough business. It is capital intensive to get that precious yellow metal out of the ground, and then the price that can be fetched on the open market can vary greatly. In the past several weeks the price of gold has dropped dramatically, while the price of many gold miners has dropped even more. Because of the uncertain and capital-intensive business model, gold miners are not more »

    By Lior Cohen - April 12, 2013 | Tickers: ABX, GG, GLD, AUY

    The gold market continues to cool down. The recovery of the U.S stock market is pulling investors out of safe haven investments and into the stock market. The leading gold producers are the first to suffer from this shift in market sentiment. Will shares of gold companies including Barrick Gold (NYSE: ABX) and Goldcorp (NYSE: GG) continue to decline?

  • Digging Into Gold Mines

    By Frank Schirmeier - April 2, 2013 | Tickers: ABX, GG, GDX, NEM, SLW, AUY

    I am not in favor of letting daily news affect my long-term investments. Even so, the Cyprus news, with fears on the safety of paper money flaring up, reminded me of the necessity to diversify into commodities. In the following, I will explain my line of thoughts, starting at physical gold and ending up with an investment into shares of the gold miner GoldCorp (NYSE: GG).

    Any Fool knows that the goal is to buy low and sell high. If you're considering purchasing an undervalued gold mining stock, this is your golden opportunity.

    Private citizens rushed to the bank yesterday in Cyprus; a flurry of withdrawals resulted as citizens learned the terms of the Cyprus bailout. Imagine taking 10% of a private citizen’s funds to cover the bailout. Is it any wonder that the more »

  • Battle Over Gold Miner May Set Stage For More Mining M&A

    By Josh Hutcheson - March 10, 2013 | Tickers: AGI, ABX, GFI, HMY, HL, KGC, AUY

    It is widely known that there has been a drop in mining M&A. Specifically, global mining M&A was down by a third last year, and year-to-date has declined by a further third over the same period last year, according to data provider Dealogic.

  • Invest in these Companies During an Inflation Bull Market

    By Jarrod Bailey - March 5, 2013 | Tickers: XOM, MRK, AUY

    Most fund managers, if you asked them in private, would likely concede that buying a 30 year bond with a yield that is less than inflation is not an ideal long term investing strategy.  Yet the current price of bonds suggests the actions of the majority of investors runs counter to this. You see, it is the actions of investors, not the sound bites they (and the talking heads on more »

    The price of gold has started off the year on a negative note and has lost nearly 3.9% of its value (year to date). Moreover, gold hasn't done well in 2012.
