Gold has been long regarded as a safe haven for investments in case of market downturns. Many investors have gained exposure to gold by purchasing stocks of companies engaged in the exploration and mining of gold. One of the major benefits of investing in gold stocks is protection against inflation. In addition, it offers strong asset appreciation for the long term and good financial cover in case of macroeconomic and geopolitical uncertainty. Resumption in mining activities and reopening of the economy have been key in driving investor interest in precious metal stocks.
