Metals Stocks (Some Precious) Now Turning Up From 2023 Lows


These metals and mining stocks turned upward late in 2023 and, with the price of gold at or near highs, may be set to reward investors. Past performance is no guarantee of future results, of course, but existing shareholders are probably feeling okay.

5 Metals Stocks In Up Trends.

Agnico Eagle is headquartered in Toronto, Ontario, Canada with precious metals mining operations around the world. Founded in 1957, the market capitalization today is $27.12 billion. The stock trades with a price-earnings ratio of 10 and at 1.37 times book value.

On the daily price chart below, the red-circled area indicates the pre-Christmas crossover of the 50-day moving average (the blue line) to above the 200-day moving average (the red line). Note that the price took out the mid-July high and continues to trade above that level.

BHP Group is active in the industrial metals sector such as iron ore, nickel, potash and copper. Based in Australia, the NYSE-listed ADR is trading with a price-earnings ratio of 12. Market cap comes to $173 billion. The company pays investors a dividend of 4.56%.

The stock crossed above its mid-July resistance level in December and took over higher after the 50-day crossed above the 200-day moving average (red-circled on the daily price chart, below).
