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.

Chevron (CVX) has pulled up impressively from its 52-week lows that it had hit in late August, appreciating almost 30% in less than three months. The pick-up in Chevron’s stock price of late can be attributed to marked improvement in oil prices in the past three months. However, of late, oil prices have started faltering on the back of different reasons ranging from an increase in stockpiles to a strong dollar.
