To keep readers entertained during the Christmas season, and with just one day to go until you find out whether you’re on Santa’s Naughty or Nice list, we’ve recapped our best-read stories of 2019.
The traditional 12 Days of Christmas covers things like partridges, golden rings, and milking maids.
Our stocking is better — full to the brim with battery metals, infant formula, expert stock picks, and resources ‘movers and shakers’.
On Stockhead’s nice list today is:
Not sure why September was more popular than any other month this year…
Maybe it was because a bunch of small cap resources plays made (in Reuben Adams’ words) “colossal gains” over the month of September.
The fundamentally bullish outlook for copper hasn’t changed for quite a while, but pundits call it ‘Doctor Copper’ because its performance correlates with the health of the global economy.
Which means that unlike gold, copper — which briefly fell to year-lows of ~US$5500/t — isn’t a strong performer when s&*t hits the fan.
So, it’s interesting that copper-facing explorers were among the top performers in September. Silver and nickel explorers also made big gains, while gold had to settle with a smaller piece of the pie.
