In the end, the Dow Jones Industrial Average gained 0.5%, the S&P 500 gained a fraction, the Nasdaq Composite gained 0.2% and the Russell 2000 lost 0.6%. Treasury bonds were stronger, the dollar weakened notably, gold lost 0.2% after trading higher earlier in the session and oil gained 1.8% as the bulls focused on an inventory draw and ignored surging U.S. production.


Breadth was mixed and volume heavy, with NYSE activity at 103% of the 30-day average. Defensive telecom and utility stocks led the way with gains of 3% and 0.9%, respectively, on a drop in long-term yields. Materials and financials were the laggards, down 0.6%.

The flow of second quarter earnings continued. Boeing Co (NYSE:BA) surged 9.9% and is going vertical after beating earnings expectations by 10% on better margins and tax rate.

Top 10 Gold Stocks To Buy For 2018: Sandstorm Gold Ltd(SAND )

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Rich Duprey]

    Sandstorm Gold (NYSEMKT:SAND) has outperformed the precious metal itself over the past year, with shares rising 35% year to date. Last month it reported third-quarter profits of $7 million, a big U-turn from 2015, when it suffered losses of $5.5 million. In fact, its entire operation was doing better with greater production: lower cash costs, but higher cash margins; and greater operating cash flows, all of which allowed it to pay down its revolving credit facility. That means it has no bank debt and its entire $110 million revolving credit facility is available to make acquisitions.

  • [By WWW.THESTREET.COM]

    SeaWorld Entertainment (SEAS) is probably the most famous example of a company that’s suffered from animal cruelty allegations. Shares of the theme park operator, backed by Blackstone (BX) , have never recovered from the release of the 2013 documentary Blackfish, which argued that orca captivity is inhumane and dangerous to the human trainers of the orcas. SeaWorld announced in March that it would phase out its orca captivity, breeding and live shows. The company’s remaining whales, most of which were born in captivity, will live out their lives at the parks. The news sent SeaWorld shares soaring 9%, but continued attendance drops forced the company to slash its dividend and invest $175 million in new attractions.

Top 10 Gold Stocks To Buy For 2018: Centerra Gold Inc. (CAGDF)


Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By SEEKINGALPHA.COM]

    Centerra Gold (OTCPK:CAGDF) bought out the previous owner of the Mt. Milligan Mine, Thompson Creek Metals, which really saved the asset for Royal Gold, as I explained in a past article. Mt. Milligan contributed $31.66 million of Royal Gold’s $106.9 million revenue this past quarter, or 29.6% of total revenue. I own shares of Centerra Gold, and I think Mt. Milligan is a strong asset that will contribute tons of cash flow for Royal Gold.

  • [By James E. Brumley]

    When most people think of gold mining stocks, names like Barrick Gold Corporation (USA) (NYSE:ABX) and Newmont Mining Corp (NYSE:NEM) come to mind. And well they should. Newmont Mining and Barrick Gold are a pair of the industry’s biggest gold mining outfits, and each has successfully leveraged their size to turn reasonably consistent profits even in tough environments.

    At the end of the day though, Barrick Gold and Newmont Mining just don’t pack as much potential punch as the up-and-comers within the industry. It’s the small cap stocks and junior gold miners in this space that can pay off big-time for investors willing to get a little more speculative, and right now there’s not any junior gold mining name as compelling as an outfit called Taranis Resources Inc. (OTCMKTS:TNREF, TSX:TRO).


    Taranis develops mineral deposits into mine-ready projects. Its primary project right now — and it’s enough to keep the company plenty busy for the next several years — is the Thor property located near Trout Lake, British Columbia. NI 43-101 resource reports (indicated and inferred)suggest Thor contains 6.9 million ounces of silver, 35,000 ounces gold, 57 million pounds of lead, 79.4 million pounds of zinc and 3.3 Million pounds of copper (roughly a 14 million ounce silver equivalent (“AgEq”) deposit*) laying in wait in a way that lends itself to the establishment of a low-cost, open pit mining operation. That’s roughly $300 million worth of marketable metals, and the estimates have been steadily getting bigger as Tanaris does more survey work.


    And 2017 could be a real breakout year for Taranis, as a lot of the work that’s been done to date starts to mean something. It’s got big exploration plans for this year… this spring/summer to be exact.

    The Phase 1 program was completed in September of last year, setting the stage for a more defined and much bigger Phase 2 definition-drilling within the next several weeks. This Phase 2 defi

Top 10 Gold Stocks To Buy For 2018: Seadrill Limited(SDRL)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Dan Caplinger]

    Rather than panicking, investors seemed to take the stance as a positive sign that the U.S. economy is ready for at least slightly less accommodative monetary policy going forward. Yet some stocks suffered sharp declines, and Shake Shack (NYSE:SHAK), Fred’s (NASDAQ:FRED), and Seadrill (NYSE:SDRL) were among the worst performers on the day. Below, we’ll look more closely at these stocks to tell you why they did so poorly.

    Tuesday was another down day for the Dow Jones Industrials, which fell more than 100 points to drop further below the 20,000 level. But broader market measures were mixed, and the Nasdaq Composite even managed to gain ground. Continued uncertainty about the impact of new policies from the U.S. federal government have kept markets a bit turbulent, and the beginning of a two-day meeting of the Federal Reserve’s Open Market Committee could set the tone for monetary policy in 2017. Some stocks had bad news that sent them lower today, and among the worst performers were Seadrill (NYSE:SDRL), Roadrunner Transportation Systems (NYSE:RRTS), and Tempur Sealy International (NYSE:TPX). Below, we’ll look more closely at these stocks to tell you why they did so poorly.
