1. Warren Buffett buys some BOA shares: As everyone
2. Gold prices: Although GLD more or less accurately tracks the price of Gold I was looking at different gold miners that track the gold. Taxes for GLD are cumbersome and hence the need to look for alternatives.
I came across a seekingalpha article.
I would like to add RGLD to the mix . As Yahoo finance puts it, Royal Gold together with its subsidiaries, acquires and operates precious metals royalties. RGLD has been closely aligned to GLD than AUY simply based on end price results for various terms. RGLD has a higher P/E ratio: higher 50s. Market CAP is around $4B and average volume is less than a million.
Disclosure: I do not have any positions in RGLD as I write this article.
