HENDERSON, NV / ACCESSWIRE / April 3, 2019 / ''A Fed rate cut would be the catalyst for a bull move in gold mining stocks'', writes Jordan Roy-Byrne at TheDailyGold. History shows, many lows in gold miner stocks over the past 60 years coincided with the end of rate hikes. Fed funds futures have now showed a 56% chance of a rate cut by January 2020. However, precious metals have yet to make new 52-week highs. The gold mining stocks (as measured by the GDX and GDXJ indexes) are much closer to doing so than the metals.
Waiting for the Fed to cut rates is a risk to potential upside for investors. Investing is about anticipation. With that in mind, we found a few gold stocks to research.

IAMGOLD Corporation (IAG) (Market Cap: $1.591B; Share Price: $3.40), a global leader in gold mining, dropped more than 11% in February according to data from S&P Global Market Intelligence. As we await March final tallies, movements in the stock prices of gold miners are closely correlated with the rise and fall of the price in gold in general, so the stock's decline in February is unsurprising considering the price of the metal fell 0.31%.

Wheaton Precious Metals (WPM) (Market Cap: 10.498B; Share Price: $23.61) is one of the largest golds and silver streaming companies in the world. It generated nearly $800 million in revenue in 2018 -- a figure dwarfed by the $1 billion in back taxes and penalties that Canada, the country the company calls home, was trying to recover from Wheaton. No wonder investors were pleased when the two sides in this tax dispute finally reached an agreement back in December, and more recently, Wheaton's latest quarterly report shed more light on what the impact of the agreement is likely to be going forward. Wheaton exceeded production guidance for gold, silver and palladium by 5%, 9% and 41%, respectively, for the year ended December 31, 2018. In addition, annual gold production and sales in 2018 represented a record for the company. "Wheaton had an exceptionally successful year (2018) with our precious metals business exceeding guidance for gold, silver and palladium resulting in cash flows of over $475 million," said Randy Smallwood, President and Chief Executive Officer of Wheaton Precious Metals.
Wheaton Precious Metals Corp. operates as a silver and gold streaming company in Canada and internationally. It has streaming agreements for 20 operating mines and 9 development stage projects. The company was formerly known as Silver Wheaton Corp. and changed its name to Wheaton Precious Metals Corp. in May 2017.
