Three Cheap Gold Stocks to Add Before the Next Leg Up

Gold prices have ripped higher over the past few months as expectations that the Fed will slow its interest rate hikes boosted the precious metal to $1,959 per troy ounce, its highest level in months. Gold’s latest 50-day run marks its best since the pandemic shook global markets in 2020, which sent prices above $2,000 per troy ounce, and experts expect momentum to continue amid heightened recession concerns. It may be a bumpy year, but the overall outlook for gold in 2023 is positive.  

Investors looking to expand their precious metals position would do well to include operations with smaller market caps for their growth potential and as portfolio diversifiers. This article will look at three low-priced gold stocks that seem well-positioned for the next leg up.
