Mining

It’s no secret that the mining sector has been a bad place to invest for quite a while. The S&P/TSX Capped Materials index, which includes all of Canada’s major mining companies, lost more than 10 per cent of its value in 2018. That performance came after the index showed no gain from the summer of 2016 to the beginning of last year, as the overall stock market soared.

Now that the market has corrected, many investors are taking advantage of discounts in high-flying technology stocks, or looking for bargains in the especially hard-hit energy sector. But perhaps now is a good time to consider the overlooked mining sector, and identify cheap stocks that could be poised to rally. (March1, 2019, Terry Cain, Globe and Mail)
