Compañía de Minas Buenaventura's (BVN -4.4%) loss looks big even on a day when gold mining stocks are hit hard. It isn't just the drop in BVN’s stock price - its price swings also are getting wider, as its 30-day historical volatility has jumped 46% since Jan. 18 to 28%. BVN has dropped 21% YTD, far more than Newmont Mining (NEM), its partner in Peru, and the gold miners ETF (GDX).
