Lone Star Gold and Newmont Mining -- Ready to Rally With the Bullion

The Paragon Report Provides Equity Research on Lone Star Gold & Newmont Mining Corporation

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - Nov 25, 2011) - With the price of Gold near all-time highs, analysts and investors are beginning to question the underperformance of Gold Mining stocks. Key gold index stocks are down on average about 8 per cent year to date, while gold futures have added about 17 per cent. Paul Simon, chief investment officer of Tactical Allocation Group, argues that "Investors in gold miners still have to account for business risk and global uncertainty." Simon adds that "part of the problem miners face is they're located in countries with governments in bad fiscal positions or uncertain political climates."

Earlier this month the World Gold Council said that gold demand rose 6 percent in the third quarter from a year earlier as Europe's debt crisis spurred investors to accumulate the metal as a protection of wealth and push prices to a record. Despite the uptick, jewellery demand fell 10 percent to 465.6 tons in the third quarter, the council said. Usage in India fell 26 percent to 125.3 tons, and the country and China accounted for 57 percent of global purchases, according to the report. Total gold demand fell 23 percent in India and rose 17 percent in China. A report from the World Gold Council (WGC) titled 'India: Heart of Gold' argues that Gold demand in India will continue to be robust in the next decade. The report estimates that cumulative annual demand will be in excess of 1,200 tonnes by 2020, registering a growth of 33 per cent.
