When the market is volatile or bearish, selloffs can take place as investors run for cover to protect their investment. As prices of other shares plunge, investors often stack up gold stocks to bring an equilibrium to their portfolios.

Generally, gold prices shoot up when the market goes down. However, this year has been different as gold has failed to perform in the broader market. The fastest inflation in decades and the Fed Reserve’s steep interest rate hikes have also triggered the fall of gold prices to as low as US$1,712.55 an ounce as of July 26. The last closing price of gold futures was US$1,764.00 per ounce on July 29, 2022.

Here, we look at two gold stocks trading on NYSE and their performances during the market tumult.

Bottom line

The falling prices of gold can impact a gold mining and producing company's earnings figures. 

Coeur Mining said that the company is reeling under inflationary pressures, along with other companies in the industry. As a result, the consumable and labor costs are likely to have seen a spurt this year.
