“Dawson & Fielding Inc.” on the resilience of mining stocks despite weakening metals’ prices.

Online PR News – 02-February-2010 – – Sources close to “Dawson & Fielding Inc.” say that the firm is encouraged by the performance of the junior mining stocks held in its portfolio in the face of the pullback in the price of gold and silver.

This, the firm believes, is indicative of the sentiment underpinning the future for precious metal prices.

“Dawson & Fielding Inc.” advised clients to buy into selected junior mining stocks when the broad-based sell off in commodities in the second half of 2008 saw many stocks plunge in sympathy. At the time, many perfectly viable miners with robust balance sheets found their stocks down by as much two-thirds.

Since then, however, the prices of both gold and silver have surged significantly and investors have begun to pay more attention to the prospect of serious inflation problems in the future as governments continue to print their way out of trouble.

“Dawson & Fielding Inc.” believes that mining stocks offer an excellent leveraged play on the underlying metals and some of their holdings have tripled in value since their lows in 2008.

The firm recently advised clients to sell half of their holdings in several miners thereby locking in profits. They also suggested that there may be trend of consolidation to come as miners look to reduce operating costs in the years going forward.
