Hedge Funds Watching these 5 Gold Mining Stocks if the Dollar Falls

Some hedge funds expect a falling dollar and rising gold prices. Could gold mining stocks benefit?

One of the most common questions on the minds of individual investors and hedge fund managers alike is, when will the US treasury start its tapering? In other words when will the Fed start to lease the markets off of its quantitative easing – the easy money that's been boosting credit markets and staving off another recession.

And many investors are considering the ways in which tapering could affect the dollar relative to the price of gold. The two trade inversely – when people are bearish on the dollar they put their money into other markets, gold in particular – and when they are bullish on the dollar the price of gold often goes down. 

The Senate finance committee is expected to goad a more finite answer from the next Fed Chair, Janet Yellen this Thursday regarding when tapering will commence: estimates ranged from anywhere between this past September through the next year. As explained in the video by our friends at Hedgeye, constant speculation about the timing and intensity of tapering have led to a lot of volatility, including in the gold markets:

If the dollar falls, which Hedgeye's analysts suspect it will, that could lead to a long term spike in the value of gold.

Investing ideas

Now, while many factors can influence the success of a particular mining stock – one of the major factors impacting their business is the global price for whatever metals they pull out of the ground. Typically, higher prices for firms that sell raw materials can lead to bigger profits.

We decided to look for mining stocks that would benefit from higher gold prices, should Hedgeye's analysis prove correct. Beginning our screen with the roughly seventy companies that sell or mine gold, we looked for those experiencing spikes in institutional buying. When hedge funds, mutual funds, and other financial institutions are buying more of company's stock, it is generally because those institutions expect the stock to perform well.

We were left with five gold mining stocks on our list.
