Gold Miners
  • Pininvest Analysis

Our 2 gold themes, Gold Miners and Junior Gold, are fairly small US listed selections, considering the size and variety of the industry

Extreme volatile shares are not included in our selections but it will be noted that – while achieving closely comparable performances over time – asset volatilities in Gold Miners and Junior Gold still differ widely on average, in favor of Gold Miners

Not unsurprisingly share performances are also distributed over a much wider range in Junior Gold

Unless well informed about the potential of specific gold mining companies – and, at DATAvariance, we are not – an investor might opt between 2 strategies

  • Track mid to large cap gold mining companies; observing the trend of the gold price may offer investment opportunities
  • Choose a specialized ETF such as GDX (the largest), RING or SGDM in gold mining – or GDXJ or SGDJ in junior mining to benefit from a wider distribution within the industry
