There are a number of gold stocks on the TSX. If you’re not sure where to start, check out this list of the 10 best gold stocks to buy in Canada.

What you should know before buying gold stocks

This list of the best gold stocks is meant to help you conduct your own research in finding the best gold stocks to buy right now. It is not investment advice. No single stock or list of stocks will suit all investors, and we all have different goals and needs.

Whether you care more about short-term capital gains or long-term dividend growth, it’s important to know whether a stock is performing well, making a profit, paying dividends or going backwards. Always remember that past performance does not guarantee future results. Investments can go up and down in value.

How to buy gold in Canada

How did we pick the best gold stocks in Canada?

We used Finder’s proprietary algorithm to identify the best gold stocks and silver stock listed on the TSX based on price, performance, profit, revenue and dividends. Our fundamental analysis filters stocks by taking into account historical prices, dividends, revenue growth, (low) price volatility and profit margins.

To avoid smaller, more speculative stocks, we only include companies with a market cap of more than CAD $200 million. In order to better compare historical data, we filtered out stocks that have been listed for less than five years.

We do not guarantee the performance or returns of any investment. Our methodology might filter out some good stocks, so our decision to include or exclude a stock from this list does not indicate whether it’s a good or bad investment. For more info about our algorithm, check out our stock ranking page.

The algorithm was last updated 27 January 2021. This list and data was compiled June 28, 2021.
