Stock investors often shy away from including gold and mining stocks in their portfolios. But is there a place for these kinds of companies in a growth- and quality-oriented portfolio? Doug Gerlach, editor-in-chief of the award-winning Investor Advisory Service and the SmallCap Informer stocknewsletters, has ideas to improve your portfolio diversification with gold mining stocks.

This is why the Investor Advisory Service newsletter--rated #1 for newsletter performance in 2021 by Hulbert Ratings--follows a healthy selection of mid-sized stocks. In this session, Doug Gerlach, editor-in-chief, will review the reasons why you should consider midsized companies and provide some of his team's best stock ideas for the current market.

In this session, Doug Gerlach will discuss some of his favorite gold miners from the perspective of fundamental, long-term focused investors, taken from his market-beating SmallCap Informer newsletter.
