Back on September 9th, when Gold firmly crossed over $1,000, we posted our first “In Celebration Of Gold $1,000 Post, 15 Juniors For You To Choose From“. It was spurred on by the amount of buzz created by those seeking to invest in good gold stocks. For example, world-renowned small-cap trader and “stock guru to the little people” – Timothy Sykes – immediately posted the following to Twitter at 7:30 AM that morning:
With gold now trading closer to $1,050 and waving bye-bye to the fading $1,000 level, I anticipate more requests like this would come in from all over the web, so I’ve update the list for all those investors who are now seeking great gold juniors.
I’ve put together a quick snapshot of 16 gold stocks / AGORACOM Clients. Yes, assume I am horribly conflicted and do your own homework.
I’ve listed the companies alphabetically to avoid any appearance of preferential treatment. You have some grass roots companies, as well as, some cash generating producers in here, so be sure to look through the entire list and find the one that best suits your investment needs.
What is really great about these junior gold companies is they are completely accessible to questions from online investors. You post questions to their HUB and get an answer in less than 24 hours – and usually the same day. That should give you an early indication as to the confidence of these companies. I’ve provided a link to each company’s HUB and electronic shareholder forum.
If you have already committed to making gold stocks a part of your longer-term investing plan (longer than the end of this week), then you’ll also want to utilize the following helpful resources that I have set up:
Gold Prices Page – Consolidated view of everything from spot prices to 1-year charts.
Gold $1,000 Blog Posts – Anytime I post something about gold, I add it to this category for ease of use. You will note that we have been calling for $1,000 gold for a couple of years now. Our Chief Commentator, Peter Grandich, has been interviewed in WSJ, CNBC, Fox, BNN, Marketwatch and almost every other major media source for his uncanny gold calls over the past 3 years.
I hope you will find this list helpful and I look forward to any comments you may have.
