Why Goldcorp Will Get Better Goldcorp (GG) has lost almost 38% of its market capitalization this year, and the company’s latest results haven’t done much to improve investor confidence. In fact, when Goldcorp reported its third-quarter results at the end of last month, it posted a surprise loss and missed Wall Street’s estimate by a wide margin. The weakness in gold prices and higher depreciation created pressure on Goldcorp’s bottom line in the quarter, which is why the company failed to report growth despite an impressive increase in the top line.

In fact, looking ahead, it is likely that oil prices will remain under pressure in the short run, and this could weigh on Chevron’s stock price. Let’s see why.
