Portfolio of Gold and Silver Mining Stocks

Stock prices of gold and silver mining companies tend to follow the underlying prices of gold and silver. Therefore, the prices of the mining stocks are quite volatile.

Before you buy a gold or silver stock, be sure you know about the company and where prices are in the gold and silver price cycle.

Small mining companies that depend on one or a few mines can be quite risky. Some large companies pay modest dividends.

Here is a table of 25 well-known gold and silver mining stocks.
