With a volatile world out there and possible rising inflation, it might be tempting to take a look at gold at this time, especially with gold over $590 an ounce. During times like these, gold does very well historically. And with reports of Bush thinking of nuking Iran's nuclear capability, gold may sky rocket even further. But instead of gold itself, you may want to look at gold mining stocks.
Now there are risks involved in purchasing gold itself, so to me a good mining company is a safer bet. If you are thinking of investing in gold mining stocks, then it would be wise to use the following sites for your research: Gold-Stocks.com, Kitco and Zeal. Personally, for a somewhat fair valued gold mining stock, I like Kinross. I'll be adding it to my watchlist today.
