Which mining stocks are on your watchlist for the rest of July?
This month has been quite an interesting one for mining stocks. Some mining stocks were able to achieve gains in July, while others were not. Usually, mining stocks will move up or down based on the price of precious metals and minerals. For example, if gold goes up in price, it is very possible that a gold stock will too. But mineral prices are not the only thing that has an impact on mining stocks.
When investing in the mining sector, there are a few things you should look out for. Shortages, increased demand, and surplus are all things that can have a heavy effect on the price of a mining stock. There are a few other steps you can take to help decide which mining stocks to watch. Looking at recent news can be very useful to investors. This can be anything from sector news, world news, to company-specific news.
There is a lot of inflation fear in the market right now. Nobody knows how this could affect the mining stock sector right now. What we do know is that a lot of second-quarter earnings have been or are about to be released. Earnings and operational reports often provide good insight as to where a company is at right now. So when it is earnings season, these reports can be the decider for if a stock is going to go up or down. It all depends on the information released, as sometimes the reports have little to no effect on a company. With all of this info in mind, let’s look at three mining stocks to watch at the end of July.
