4 Golden Investment Opportunities With Big Yield

Investment opportunities that offer a respectable yield have been increasingly rare of late, particularly with U.S. Treasuries offering less than 2%. While most of the investment opportunities within the gold market are focused on the price of gold itself, there are other ways to realize stable returns. The dividends offered by a handful of miners offer the type of return profiles that have become scarce.

In the video below, contributor Doug Ehrman discusses the pros and cons of four specific miners. Where Freeport-McMoRan (NYSE: FCX  ) and Barrick Gold (NYSE: ABX  ) each offer a different type of investment opportunity, they share a solid dividend yield. Likewise, both Newmont Mining (NYSE: NEM  ) and Kinross (NYSE: KGC  ) have different overall profiles, but still are worth considering from an income perspective. Ultimately, finding investment opportunities that combine yield and a solid risk-return profile is critical, and these four stocks may fit your needs.
