Three Mining Stocks w/ Upside Potential & Dividends

Today, investors could find success in buying stocks in the mining industry, given not only recent market behavior but the fact that we will never have a problem with a demand for energy— it has been and will remain a potent force on our stock exchange, some of them very profitable. For this list, I looked through a lot of individual mining stocks. Gold excites me too, for instance, and I’ll probably be taking a look at gold very soon. I found some favorites in the coal mining industry, so I thought I’d embrace coal in particular. With further research, I was a little surprised to learn there are still great opportunities in coal. Having been a crucial energy resource and vital to the economy throughout our country’s history, the U.S. still relies on coal as an energy source today, and more so than one would think. 

Coal is, in ways, the most important energy source for creating and powering electricity, utilizing iron and steel, and cement on a global scale, making it a focal point in matters concerning not only climate change but energy in general. Additionally, it produces the most carbon dioxide emissions of any major energy source. While are climate and energy goals are firmly in place, numerous countries have increased their reliance on coal as a result of the continuing energy crisis. Why? Well, it’s reliable. It stands to reason, then, that its stock would be performing well, and that it would be considered naturally stable. That just happens to be the case in this instance. 

That said, join me while I break down the three mining stocks I like best, accounting for overall performance. The analysts agree, and are telling us to buy these timely tickers:
