5 Best Mining Stocks to Buy Now
When investors think of mining stocks, they typically think of gold miners - the firms that search for and extract gold, and become popular whenever gold prices soar, like they have in 2020.

Gold mining stocks, often used as a hedge against disaster, can indeed be fruitful investments. Factors such as uncertainty and fear in traditional stocks, or a weak U.S. dollar, can drive gold prices (and in turn, gold stocks) higher, and because their prices aren't strongly correlated to the broader market, they can be a useful source of portfolio diversification.

But they're not the only ways to invest in extracting valuable commodities from the ground. Diversified mining stocks that produce ores such as iron and copper can be used to position portfolios to reap the riches of economic expansion and infrastructure spending. And companies searching for other elements that are powering today's newest technologies can provide high growth potential.

Today, we'll look at five of the best mining stocks to buy today. For the most part, we're targeting companies with strong financial positions that can generate gobs of cash - in other words, firms with the resources to ride out rockier periods for their underlying commodities. But we'll also examine one more aggressive pick that might not have the cleanest of balance sheets, but does boast explosive potential.

Dow gains at Tuesday's open as coronavirus relief package deadline and vaccines come into focus
U.S. stock benchmarks on Tuesday kicked off trade modestly higher, as stocks attempted to recover from the worst daily percentage decline in about a month. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin have indicated that differences in negotiations toward a sweeping coronavirus aid package are "narrowing," with a self-imposed deadline of end of day Tuesday looming. Both sides said they are continuing to work on the matter, which the market views as crucial to supporting further gains.

IBM's stock is the lone Dow decliner, would cut about 30 points off the Dow's price
Shares of International Business Machines Corp. dropped 3.7% in premarket trading Tuesday, and was the only decliner among Dow Jones Industrial Average components ahead of the open, after the technology giant reported another quarterly revenue decline and didn't provide financial guidance. The stock's implied price decline would shave about 30 points off the Dow's price, while Dow futures rose 103 points, or 0.4%. Wedbush analyst Moshe Katri said the third-quarter results, which were reported late Monday, were "mixed," as the net result continues to be "lackluster revenue growth and inconsistent margin performance."
