For The Real Value, Start Digging Underground
In this age of quantitative easing, investors may seek an asset class that can provide a hedge against inflation and ongoing currency devaluation. Precious metals, especially gold, have long been considered a valuable asset for this reason. The Fed’s recent decision to taper has taken off some shine of gold prices, which were down 28% in 2013. With the worst year in gold prices in 32 years behind us, investors may believe that gold prices have bottomed out and that gold miners are valued cheaply compared to the value of the reserves held.
The companies in this motif are precious metal miners which have access to metal reserves underground. They are weighted on the basis of their reserves (producible precious-metal inventory) and operating margins.
