Gold Is Rallying. When Will Miners Catch Up?

Daniela Cambone of Kitco News welcomes Frank Holmes back to the program, with gold prices edging closer and closer to the key $1,300 level. Despite the rally in bullion, however, gold mining stocks are lagging behind and Daniela wants to know why. Frank says one reason is the upcoming rebalance of the VanEck Vectors Junior Gold Miners ETF (GDXJ), set to take place on June 16.

Frank explains that the rebalance has already been extremely disruptive, with great small- and mid-cap producers getting pushed down and out. The positive news? Lower prices on these undervalued stocks make great opportunities for investors, particularly since many of the companies like Klondex Mines and Gran Colombia currently have record profits and revenue growth.
