If you own this, you want to look at how well they've held up against their peers. This one has not held up well. Have had some additional operating problems. Would look to let some of it go on any strength.

3rd largest copper mine in the world as well as one of the largest gold mines. In Indonesia which is the biggest risk. Not sure how long the bull market can run, but prefers being in large caps for less risk.

A great way, in a large cap stock, to participate both in copper and in gold. As long as these metals act well, this company should participate because they have great reserves in the ground.

Has broken out of a multi year consolidation. Had some operational problems a couple of years ago that are getting resolved, so the earnings are getting much better. A pure play on copper and gold.

A great play on copper and gold. Have an enormous resource. Pays 2.2%. There's often a tie between energy and the metal stocks. Metals have lagged the energy to date, but have really started to put on some strength in the last little while.
