Stocks To Watch: Top 20 Gold & Silver Mining Companies

“Be fearful when others are greedy, and be greedy when others are fearful.” – Warren Buffett

Gold’s quest to top $2,000.00 by year end got a huge boost today from the E.U. sanctions on Iran with the Top Gold and Silver Mining Companies all taking respectable moves higher today with the exception of Pan American Silver Corp. (NASDAQ:PAAS). Pan American announced a deal earlier today to purchase Minefinders Corp. for $1.49 Billion creating one of the world’s largest silver producers.

Gold futures for February delivery rose $14.30 today to $1,678.30 per ounce, a new six-week high.

Gold is expected to reach $2,000 before the end of 2012. Watch here for an interview this week with one of the stock markets Top Gold Traders.

The following are the prices and fundamentals of 20 of the Top Gold and Silver Mining Stocks and the 2 of the most promoted junior mining penny stocks in the stock market today. Many of them are “hidden gems” in that they are bouncing around near the bottom of their 52-week price range. Investors tends to forget that Gold and Silver mining is somewhat seasonal and during the cold winter months like January, production can be slowed a bit.

When you look at the key financial statistics, you can see a company that’s well worth “walking over and picking up.”
