3 Top Metals and Mining Stocks You Should Consider Buying Now
Three stocks look particularly compelling right now -- diversified mining giants BHP Billiton and Rio Tinto, and gold and silver play Wheaton Precious Metals. Prices of key base metals such as iron ore, copper, zinc, lead, nickel, and aluminum are on fire, fueling investors' optimism that the worst is behind the mining industry. Wheaton Precious Metals isn't a traditional gold and silver miner, yet it offers investors the same exposure to gold and silver as any mining company. For mining investors, this makes Wheaton a relatively safer way to bet on precious metals.
