Since the end of June until now gold stocks have begun to outperform bullion. Over that time period the S&P/TSX Global Gold Index has gained 12 percent, while gold futures in New York have gained roughly 6.7 percent. Shares of major gold companies such as Goldcorp Inc. and Agnico-Eagle Mines Ltd. have surged recently as earnings have beat profit estimates as a result of lower costs and higher cash flow.

"The gold shares are starting to outperform the gold price," David Christensen, CEO of ASA Gold and Precious Metals Ltd. "As the companies begin to tighten their operating constraints and generate more cash flow; we're seeing some of that turnaround in the valuations in the industry."
