Summary 

  • Gold is commonly considered a safe haven investment option.
  • As the economy recovers, many investors are turning away from gold to look for other improved growth opportunities.
  • This could be considered a fitting entrypoint for investing in some gold-oriented stocks.

Gold is commonly considered a safe haven investment option. When stock markets are largely hit, mainly during a financial crisis, investors often look for alternative asset classes to invest in. For this reason, gold prices touched record highs amid the pandemic last year.

But as the economy recovers amid ramped-up vaccination drives, many investors are turning away from gold to look for other improved growth opportunities, leading to lowered gold prices.

This could be considered a fitting entrypoint for investing in some gold-oriented stocks, as it is likely that the precious metal will not remain this cheap forever.

On that notes, let us look at some gold stocks on the TSX that you could add to your portfolio.
