2016’s Top 5 stocks revealed

It has been a slow start to the year for the S&P/ASX 200 (Index: ^AXJO) (ASX: XJO) – the index is down 1.4%

But that doesn’t mean there weren’t any stocks that went on incredible runs.

Below I’ve outlined five of the top performing stocks on the ASX, but it probably won’t surprise anyone that 4 of the 5 are gold miners. The gold price has been on a tear thanks to global volatility and the likes of Brexit, a slowing China and ongoing European dramas. Not to mention the US Federal Reserve raising interest rates slower than originally expected.

That’s all good news for gold and it has soared above US$1,300 an ounce. With the Australian dollar trading at around 74 US cents, our gold miners are making a mint – with many having all-in sustaining costs of around the A$1,000 to A$1,100 an ounce mark.

That’s why top Motley Fool analysts just revealed their exciting new research on 5 ASX miners they believe could help you profit in 2019 and beyond…

The best way we see to play the global zinc shortage… Our #1 favourite large-cap miner (hint: it’s not BHP)… one early-stage gold miner we think could hit the motherlode… Plus two more surprising companies you probably haven’t heard of yet!
