3 Gold Stocks With May Upside Potential

NYSE: AGI | Alamos Gold Inc. Class A Common Shares News, Ratings, and Charts

AGI – Gold’s prospects appear promising owing to rising disposable incomes, its appeal as a safe-haven asset, and the expected interest rate cuts later this year. Amid this backdrop, investors could consider buying quality gold stocks Eldorado Gold (EGO), Alamos Gold (AGI), and Centerra Gold (CGAU), given their strong upside potential. Read on…

Gold prices hit record highs recently due to ongoing geopolitical tensions and declining inflation. Gold prices have soared since the beginning of the year due to persistent buying by central banks worldwide, its reputation as a safe-haven asset, expectations of interest rate cuts this year, and rising consumer spending on gold as an investment.

Given the yellow metal’s promising prospects, investors could consider buying fundamentally strong gold stocks such as Eldorado Gold Corporation (EGO), Alamos Gold Inc. (AGI), and Centerra Gold Inc. (CGAU).

In the first quarter of 2024, total gold demand, including OTC buying, rose 3% over the prior-year quarter to 1,238t, marking the strongest first quarter since 2016. The jewelry segment also observed healthy growth, with jewelry fabrication growing by 1% year over year to 535t.

Gold’s unprecedented surge has been propelled by Chinese speculators, who have been purchasing gold at an unprecedented rate due to a weak Yuan and concerns about China’s economic recovery. Additionally, there is a robust demand for bullion from China.

The lingering geopolitical tensions, which continue to impact market sentiments globally, are further bolstering gold’s demand, making it a compelling investment option. Gold’s appeal as a safe-haven asset during these geopolitical uncertainties and the expected easing of monetary policies in the coming months is likely to boost its demand further.

Rosenberg Research’s David Rosenberg believes gold looks poised to hit $3,000 per ounce.

Considering these conducive trends, let’s examine the fundamentals of the three featured Miners – Gold stocks.
