Please Cast Your Vote for Best Stock for 2011
The Motley Fool's annual stock picking contest series is out today, and I'm looking to my fellow Fools for their support at the polls by voting for Gammon Gold as the best stock for 2011 (in this round and the next).
Fools will no doubt notice that -- for the first time -- another mining stock has worked its way into the playing field ... I had grown accustomed to offering the sole mining stock in the contest each year, but TMFUltraLong has smartly selected Thompson Creek (which I also own in real life). :) As a shareholder, of course I think Thompson Creek is a very compelling investment opportunity as well, but I fully expect Gammon to see greater gains for 2011.
Gammon holds a number of specific potential upside catalysts up its sleeve (see article). And the market fundamentals for gold and silver are well known by this stage. Just this week, China's largest investment bank announced a new program whereby Chinese citizens can accrue gold exposure gradually through an innovative gold savings program. I think such a program will prove wildly popular, and facilitate the next phase of the gold demand story.
So please follow this link to my article proposing Gammon Gold as the best stock for 2011, rec the article if you like what I have to say, and cast your vote in the poll beneath the article. Comments to the article also help to imprive the article's circulation. They usually compile the top scorers from this initial round into a final artile where Fools vote for a final selection, and I ask you to keep Gammon in mind if it happens to advance. Silver Wheaton dominated the voting in round 1 last year, but lost to Apple in the final round (and we all know which stock logged the best performance). :)
