Best Performing Gold Stocks of 2020

Updated Dec 31, 2020
Gold has been the leading precious metal since the start of economic activities in the human life. In fact, it was used as the default currency for a very long period before other metal-based coins and paper-based currency notes came into circulation. Centuries later, gold still finds the top rank among metals which hold investment value. To prevent the risk of inflation and erosion of value, individuals and even institutions like banks store money-equivalents in gold holdings making gold an attractive choice for investments. A lot of individuals like to purchase stocks of companies which are deriving their business and revenue from gold and gold-linked activities. They include stocks of companies which are in gold mining, gold purification, gold processing, gold items manufacturing like jewellery, companies offering loan against gold and even those which are offering safe deposits and vaults for storing gold.
