4 Gold Stocks Seen Falling as Much as 15%

Michael Kramer

Gold stocks have fallen nearly 19% from their highs in 2018 as measured by the VanEck Vectors Gold Miners ETF ( GDX), which holds 49 stocks. The individual mining stocks have fallen even more than the ETF in some cases and, based on technical analysis, are facing even steeper declines. Gold miners’ revenue is tied to the price of gold, and should prices fall, revenue drops, causing earnings to decline.
