Gold and Miners: Bridging the Performance Gap – ALPS & SPROTT – 11.16.17


On Demand Soon.

Gold continues to build on its 2016 positive return of 8.6%, with a 2017 YTD gain of 10.3% as of 10/31/2017*. By contrast, gold miners are lagging the yellow metal in 2017, departing from their historic pattern of relative outperformance. This gap may have created a unique investment opportunity for precious metals investors. Join us as we discuss what is happening with gold and gold equities right now.

  • Why does this performance gap exist?
  • What are the catalysts that will potentially close this gap?
  • How can you take advantage of this investment opportunity?
  • How does market cap weighting compare to factor-based approaches?
  • Why junior gold stocks may provide the greatest “torque” to the gold price, and how they have performed since the significant index change which impacted Q2?
