Fully-listed Christmas share tip of mine, Golden Prospect (GPM) released its interim results to June this morning. The bottom-line news was that Golden Prospect lost 16% in NAV terms over the period – not exactly a healthy performance. But as long commented on these web-pages, Gold and Gold stocks have been in a correction since the beginning of August 2020 and I have commented before that Golden Prospect is likely to over-perform in both directions so when times are good they are really good for shareholders, but when Gold goes through stickier times Golden Prospect is likely to underperform. And so it has been: Golden Prospect’s NAV dropped 16% whilst GDXJ (the “junior” gold-miners ETF) dropped 14.7% and the yellow metal itself only fell by 6.4%.
