Gold Miners

  • This chart shows today's hottest investment
  • Right now there's one sector I'm particularly excited about on the JSE. I recently banked a 150%+ gain from a share in less than 4 months in this sector, and I believe it has only started running. I'm talking about Gold… And while the shiny metal itself has delivered investors very good returns over the years, right now gold miners are in an even better position to profit. Let me... ››› more

  • When fear grows - these stocks soar
  • The rand is at R15.37 to the dollar - the weakest we've seen since the Zuma era. We can blame this on NHI, EWC or a string of other three lettered government policies that aren't business friendly. But at the end of the day the whole world is running scared right now. Thanks to the US trade war, negative bond yields in many European countries and increasing world debt. In fact, for t... ››› more

  • Does it still pay to invest in gold?
  • Gold's been a form of money, an investment and a store of value for almost as long as modern day man has walked the earth.

But the fact remains that gold has been a very stable appreciating asset for centur... ››› more

  • Three market beating gold shares
  • It's been an interesting year for gold bulls. The downtrend which brought the yellow metal down to its dismal dollar lows of $1050/oz in 2015 has reversed and gold is once again making an assault on the $1300/oz level. In the meantime, thanks to the uncharacteristically strong rand, which is now 13% firmer since January, the rand price of gold has pulled back to R17,442/oz from highs of above R... ››› more

  • Gold mining companies' broken promises results in unprecedented legal action
  • Every year, between 1,500 and 2,000 miners apply for compensation from mining companies for lung diseases like silicosis and tuberculosis. These diseases are direct a result of the mine workers coming into contact with dangerous chemicals in the mines. In 2003, the gold mining industry promised that by 2013, there would be no new cases of silicosis among workers exposed for the first time ... ››› more

  • Three reasons why you should consider investing in gold producers

  • Why it could pay off to be bullish on gold shares
  • There weren't many investments that did worse than gold shares last year. Gold shares really hit the skids, down about 35% in 2013... And down roughly 60% from their highs a couple years ago.

  • Could gold's price be out the woods?

  • If the gold price rebounds, there's one sector you could look to
  • Gold started 2013 at around $1,700 an ounce. By the end of June it had plunged to $1,200. After a late summer rally, it ended the year just a little above its low. If you believe market analysts, worse is to come. Moody's is the latest firm to trash the metal, setting a price target of $1,100. Goldman is even more pessimistic, forecasting a drop to $1,050. Read on to uncover where you could your c... ››› more

  • The big platinum and gold mining companies in South Africa are doomed!

  • Line your portfolio with gold
  • The most basic argument for buying gold is that it is a little different to other assets. Unlike most investments, gold doesn't, and never will, produce an income or pay any dividends. In fact, gold generally costs you money - there's storage costs if you take physical delivery, or management fees if you buy through a non-physical method such as ETFs. But read on to find out why you should own gol... ››› more
