The Relevancy of Copper Mining Stocks

copper mining stocksCopper Mining Stocks do not have quite as much appeal as gold or silver mining stocks, but they can actually be very lucrative. With the world economy growing at such a fast-rate, investors would be wise to include some copper mining stocks in their portfolio. These stocks tend to rise in value as the world economy heats up. This represents the increased need for copper in construction projects.

However, even with the obvious growth of the world economy, copper mining stocks are not a sure thing. Prices can be very volatile in this section of the market and investors should carefully investigate a copper mine before sinking any money into a stock such as this. An investor should also look at the state of construction before making an investment in copper mines.

The same investor should also remember to look at the construction situation over the whole world and not just locally. In the United States, there has been an obvious downturn in the world of construction. When investors remember how China and other nations are developing, the picture for copper investment becomes a little more complicated. For this reason, only investors with a certain level of sophistication should delve into this part of the market.

Examples of Copper Mining Stocks

There are some copper mining stocks that are more popular than others are. BHP Billiton is an Australian copper mining company. The Newmont Mining Corporation is based in Colorado but it has mines on all the continents except Europe and Antarctica. Rio Tinto is a British company but, like Newmont, it has many mines spread across the whole world. Freeport McMoRan is one of the largest mining companies in the world and it owns mines in both North and South America. All of these copper mining stocks have long histories.
