Best performing gold and silver stocks ytd

Reproduced below is a very interesting graphic from Scotia Capital showing the best performing precious metals mining stocks year to date – an interesting list, but one showing that most have made gains this year, but a small few have been decidedly poor choices.  Pleased to say that my own gold stock recommendations as published in articles on Seeking Alpha are not among the losers, but then I haven’t managed to pick the very top ones either – but it’s early days in 2017 so far.
