4 TSX listed Gold Stocks with Big Earnings Expectations

Financially-leveraged gold stocks will have the greatest advantage from the continued ascent in gold prices

SmallCapPower | May 4, 2016: Gold is considered a safe haven for investors during times of increased volatility, and the gold price has appreciated 21% from the start of 2016. As the precious metal’s value continues to advance, gold miners in Canada will surely benefit. Specifically, those in a position of greater financial leverage will witness amplified earnings, such as the TSX listed companies on our list. Debt to total assets is a good measure of leverage, as it shows a company’s percentage of assets that were financed by creditors.
