- The outperformance of gold mining stocks over gold this year points to at least some price gains ahead for the metal, analysts say.
- "The gold stocks typically begin rising or falling in advance of the metal, thereby foreshadowing the trend," Gold Newsletter's Brien Lundin says, adding that “they move further on a percentage basis than the underlying metal, thereby offering leverage.”
- Lundin sees prices in the $1,400-$1,500 range at the end of the year, with prices continuing to strengthen in a “slow-but-sure” climb out of last year's steep correction.
