Gold is proving to be a smart investment this year.
Year-to-date, gold is up 13%… while the S&P 500 is down 6%. In other words, gold outperformed the market by almost 20% so far this year.
And while it’s hit some bumps in the road recently, it’s important to remember that gold doesn’t always go up in a straight line. But in a crisis like the coronavirus pandemic we’re living through now, it’s always good to hold some in your portfolio.
But even better than gold are gold stocks.
Take a look at the chart below, which shows one gold stock, Orezone Gold (ORE.TO), a development-stage gold company. Keep in mind, this is not a recommendation of Orezone. We’re just using it as an example.
