Investing in gold stocks could be a great way to diversify an investment portfolio. Because it gives investors a sector that typically has separate price movement compared to others in the market and is based on a commodity. Just recently, gold and silver stocks saw a surge in their share price after the news of airstrikes in the Middle East. When investors are fearful, they often turn away from average stocks toward an investment in precious metals.

Below are three gold mining companies that have seen strong results throughout 2023 and are entering 2024 with the potential for future growth.

Alamos Gold (AGI)

Alamos Gold (NYSE:AGI) is a company that explores and acquires various mining properties in North and South America. The company operates two underground gold mines in Southeastern Canada and an open pit gold mine in Northern Mexico. Alamos also has multiple developing projects in Canada, Turkey and the U.S.

Alamos also reported a free cash flow of $1 million for Q3 2022, which increased to $37 million. Gold production improved year-over-year by approximately 10%; their most productive mine was their property in Mexico.

Recently, Alamos Gold announced that it would acquire Orford Mining in an all-stock transaction. In addition, AGI will also receive multiple of Orford’s gold mining projects located in Canada.
