While the outcome of this most recent market sell-off and related pandemic are yet-to-be-seen, we remain optimistic about the outlook for gold and gold stocks in the near-term. Much of the market movement in gold prices is relatively easy to explain, while gold companies continue to exhibit, we believe, truly compelling fundamentals and valuations. With respect to the pandemic, companies are taking all precautions, and although we do anticipate that some operations will be impacted, discussions we have had with companies indicate that every effort is being made to ensure inventories, supply lines, employee health and back-up redundancies are in place to sustain production.
Below is a summary of our most recent takeaways.
