    All that Glitters

    ValuEngine.com Rates Gold Miners as Metal Soars to New Highs

      Amidst all the controversy in Washington over the debt ceiling increase, one asset class is doing extremely well--gold.  The metal hit a new record high yesterday at $1612.20/oz. for the Comex August contract.  Analysts argue that uncertainty over sovereign debt in a variety of nations--including the US--is driving the flight to gold.

     Below, we present the latest data on gold mining stocks from our Institutional software package (Pending:VEI).  This is a list of the top ten tickers in our database.  We applied some basic liquidity criteria--share price greater than $3 and average daily volume in excess of 100k shares.  We sorted the results by short-term forecast returns.
