5 Junior Gold Stocks on Solid Financial Footing

Gold’s price is surging after recent disappointing U.S. jobs data sent, making these  junior gold stocks on our list even more attractive

SmallCapPower | June 8, 2016: Gold stocks experienced some weakness recently, following a strong start to 2016. That seemed to change, though, after the release of shockingly sluggish U.S. employment data for the month of May. Presuming that a June Federal Reserve interest rate hike is now off the table, it could be a ‘golden’ summer for precious metals-related equities. For those investors wanting to minimize their risk, a way to go could be to target gold juniors that have low debt levels as well as high return on asset figures, such as the names on our list today.
