Recent activity demonstrates the appeal of natural resource companies operating in North America ranging in size from blue chips such as Suncor Energy (NYSE: SU) and Goldcorp (NYSE: GG) to promising small caps such as Mondial Ventures (OTC: MNVN) and Premier Exploration (OTC: PMMEF). Suncor Energy and Goldcorp are Canadian companies in oil and natural gas, and gold, respectively. Mondial Ventures is an oil and natural gas entity operating in the legendary oil country of Texas. Premium Exploration has very promising holdings in the bountiful gold country of Idaho.
With valuable assets in North America, all are even more valuable.
Suncor Energy is up for the last week, month, quarter, six months, and year of market action (chart below). It also pays a dividend of 2.27 percent. The average dividend for a member of the Standard & Poor’s 500 Index (NYSE: SPY) is under 2 percent. Like Mondial Ventures, Suncor Energy is appealing to investors as it has promising holdings in North America. The increasing demand around the world for oil and natural gas will only make these stocks more rewarding for investors.
That is what investors are looking for in all natural resource stocks.
That is shown by Goldcorp rising nearly 14 percent for 2014. Other gold companies that do not have the asset base in North America that Goldcorp, Premium Exploration, and others have are not nearly as valuable to investors. That is why the Chinese are investing so heavily in North American natural resource assets, as reported by an article in The Wall Street Journal!
This trend will only continue.
There are many unstable areas around the would in which natural resource companies have to operate. That naturally makes Suncor Energy, Mondial Ventures, Premium Exploration, Goldcorp., and others much more appealing. Wall Street does not like uncertainty. What has been to be proven is the investment promise of natural resource companies operating in North America.
