Gold Outperforming Gold Stocks in 2010

With just over two months left in 2010, the price of gold is outperforming share prices of the world’s largest companies that mine the precious yellow metal. For the year, 10 of the 12 largest gold companies have seen their shares rise as commodity prices elevate. On average, these gold stocks have returned a 15.9% gain. That compares to gold, which is up 21.1% for the year.
