Gold has been one of the most secure commodities for ages immemorial. Now, in addition to investing in the physical yellow metal, investors also get the opportunity to invest in stocks of the gold mining companies, or the gold mining stocks in the market.
The gold mining industry is vast and varied, with over 300 gold mining companies that are publicly traded. Additionally, the market values of these gold mining companies also vary from micro-cap to large-cap.
Gold mining companies have a diversified portfolio of assets across the world. Therefore, gold mining stocks diversify the risk exposure and geographical exposure of investors, instead of concentrating them on just a couple of gold mining sites.
