Opportunity in the Canadian Mining Sector

The post is titled, Opportunity in the Canadian Mining Sector.  It is a review of three Canadian mining stocks listed on the NYSE and is intended for U.S. investors who may not be familiar with Canadian resource companies. I review the sector in relation to its possible value play and briefly review three company fundamentals. Here is a snippet:

“Many investors don’t think of mining stocks as dividend growth companies because of their lower dividend yields. The sector has largely been overlooked by the Canadian dividend investing crowd. Yet, these are dividend growth companies with strong balance sheets. They have recently raised their dividends and have more potential for a share price increase. “

“Take PotashCorp (POT) as an example, which recently raised its dividend by a whopping 33%. By avoiding the lower-yield mining companies, many investors may be giving up a golden opportunity for future growth, when the resource sector rebounds…”

I specifically review three companies on my watch list: PotashCorp (POT), Goldcorp Inc. (G), and Teck Resources (TCK.B).  As mentioned in the post, I may be entering a position in PotashCorp or Goldcorp soon.
