The first half of 2022 is over, and like most metals, gold has had an interesting ride.
The yellow metal has been caught up in diverse headwinds and tailwinds, with the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, Russia’s war in Ukraine and the battle against inflation being key factors.
Aggressive rate hikes from the US Federal Reserve have spurred fears of a recession, driving investors to liquidate some of their gold holdings. Going forward, Trading Economics analysts have said they expect “further downside for bullion as investors continue to de-risk due to inflation and growth concerns.”
For those looking for gold stocks to watch, Haywood Securities recently shared a list of the gold-focused companies it believes have the potential to do well in the current environment.
Read on to learn which five gold-mining companies the firm’s analysts chose for their gold stocks list. All share price data listed below was current as of June 13, 2022.
