The company boasts a $5 billion cash asset portfolio and has strong marketability in its securities holdings. As a mark of its strong intentions to continue succeeding, it continues to locate and invest in profitable ventures while repaying old debts and seeing to it that shareholders receive dividends. Although Newmont Mining is making its mark in the gold mining industry, still it pays out a tiny dividend to shareholders of just about 0.04%.

For the company’s effort, Sandstorm receives gold-streaming agreement that allows them to buy the precious metal at a fixed price.

As investors continue to watch to see what the rest of 2015 will bring and try to access what may happen in 2016, so far most gold stocks are paying dividends and at the same time are rising in value. In the future, the sky will become the limit for gold stocks as the precious commodity continues to attract much attention from the bullish investors.
