This chart shows the year to date performance of gold vs gold stocks. We see that gold stocks of all kinds have outperformed gold itself. GDX is an ETF of larger, more established miners; GDXJ is an ETF is an ETF of junior miners. RGLD , SAND, and FNV are royalty stocks, which are basically firms that invest in other mines in exchange for a share of their output.

Personally, I think these trends may continue -- though I still favor the accumulation of gold in the long run, as I think it is a safer, less speculative investment. More importantly, though, I think the outperformance year to date further supports the notion that the entire gold market has bottomed, and bulls are gearing up for the next leg up.
