Four Cheap Gold Miners

Investors value gold for many reasons. Some see the yellow metal as protection against economic collapse. These investors tend to accumulate physical gold as coins or bars believing they will be able to use their gold to prosper under extremely adverse economic or social conditions. Other investors believe the financial system will continue to function in the future, but acknowledge gold tends to rise under adverse conditions and maintain positions in the metal through investment accounts owning ETFs, futures or gold mining stocks.

Five Stocks Under $5 Analysts Believe Could Gain At Least 50% in the Next Year

Don’t Miss The Largest Uptrend Of 2016

Investors can easily become stuck in a rut.  A rut means doing the same thing over and over again despite the results.  Stock investors, for example, often just trade the sector or niche that they always have.  It doesn’t matter if there is another market sector that has set up to create outsized profits or not, they just keep on doing the same thing over and over again.

The Time Is Right For Oil Stocks

It was shocking for many people to see gasoline prices plunge below $2.00 per gallon.  Gasoline, a prime derivative of oil, had been riding a one-way ticket higher in price on the back of ever climbing oil prices.

Well, things changed and they changed fast! To the dismay and surprise of “peak oil” theorists, oil prices pl...
