The gold price has hit its one-year high now after touching US$1,948.77 per ounce in January last year.

Gold has been historically used as a hedge against inflation as it typically provides returns higher than inflation. To protect themselves from the volatility of the stock markets, investors are removing shares from their portfolio and buying gold, however, purchasing gold stocks instead of the physical metal has quite a few benefits. A key benefit of investing in gold stocks is the higher total return that you may get due to the cost cuts and expansion of production. Nevertheless, all gold stocks may not yield high returns and therefore it is essential for investors to carry out an in-depth analysis prior to investing in gold stocks.

Let’s look at 5 gold stocks which you may add to your portfolio for good returns.
