Five Star Equities Provides Stock Research on Paramount Gold & Silver and Newmont Mining

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - Jan 31, 2012) - Gold prices have been on the upswing this month as the Fed signaled it may keep interest rates low through 2014. Even the GDX, which seeks to replicate as closely as possible, the price and yield performance of the NYSE Arca Gold Miners Index, has shown signs of strength in January, surging more than 10 percent. Five Star Equities examines the outlook for companies in the Gold industry and provides equity research on Paramount Gold & Silver Corporation (NYSE Amex: PZG) (TSX: PZG) and Newmont Mining Corporation (NYSE: NEM).

Over the past year, the GDX has underperformed the price of gold by a large margin. While the SPDR Gold Trust ETF -- which attempts to reflect the performance of the price of gold bullion--- is up nearly 30 percent year-on-year, the GDX has grown a mere 5 percent over the same period.

According to a recent article from International Business Times, gold stocks have lagged the price of gold due to a number of factors, "including operational disappointments, rising cost structures, elevated political risk in many locations of their assets, and macroeconomic headwinds that have weighed on the equity markets."
