3 Cheap Gold Stocks to Buy Now

Gold put together a banner year in 2020. The COVID-19 pandemic spooked investors had spurred a flight to alternative assets for protection. This created a huge opportunity for the yellow metal. The spot price of gold rose above $2,000 U.S./ounce, an all-time high. However, this momentum would peter out in the summer of 2020 and give way to the cryptocurrency craze. Still, loose monetary policy, high inflation, and uncertainty in the form of the delta variant should keep investors’ eyes on gold. Today, I want to look at three cheap gold stocks worth snatching up.
