It may be common cause that South African political risks are likely to intensify this year, but investors cannot ignore the recent records set by a number of precious metal prices, not least gold and platinum.
South African gold stocks can be classified into several tiers, with Tier I stocks typically ranking also as Tier I gold stocks on the global platform: AngloGold Ashanti, Gold Fields, and Harmony Gold. All three stocks continue to operate from South African domiciles, but in the case of the former two, especially AngloGold Ashanti, group operations are well diversified across the world.
