Above are two quality gold producers. I have selected them as the current best risk/reward gold producers. These two stocks should outperform the price of gold significantly - if it rises. In fact, I expect these stocks to double in value if gold reaches $1,500. These are the stocks that you want to own if you are looking for high returns - if gold prices start trending higher.

These stocks have high leverage versus the gold price, so they also have high risk. In fact, I would say that they are both currently underperforming. If gold prices drop, they will likely fall hard. If investors don't like them at $1,200 gold, then they surely won't like them at $1,150 or lower.

My investment philosophy is to find stocks that will perform at higher gold prices. I like to chase future cash flow at future gold prices. I focus on the difference between a company's current FD market cap and their projected future FD market cap. I will show you how I calculate that for each of these stocks.

Below is my analysis from the GSD website (www.goldstockdata.com)for each stock on the list. Some of these analyses are not recent and the date of the analysis is included.
