A Big Upgrade for Barrick Gold - "More top-performing CAPS members are feeling bullish on Barrick Gold (NYSE: ABX) these days, upgrading it from its four-star rank to a more formidable five stars. A total of 1,707 members have given their opinion on Barrick Gold, with many offering analysis and commentary explaining the recent optimism.

Shares in gold miners like Barrick, Yamana Gold (NYSE: AUY), and Kinross Gold (NYSE: KGC) are fighting back from the dive that they took earlier this year. Though the road to recovery is bound to be bumpy, many investors see the 2008 gold correction as a thing of the past, since gold bullion prices have been on the rise in recent months.

Barrick and peer Newmont Mining (NYSE: NEM) both laid out plans to run tight operations and delay projects as necessary in the face of economic uncertainty. The swift moves could tighten supply and put upward pressure on the price of gold. And with executives from Barrick and Gold Fields estimating a rising all-in cost of production for gold, many are bullish on its long-term price, including Goldcorp (NYSE: GG) founder Rob McEwen."

Factions in a parliamentary panel last week finally resolved differences over the bill, after more than three years of wrangling that created uncertainty for miners looking to invest in Indonesia, such as Newmont (NEM.N: Quote, Profile, Research, Stock Buzz) and Rio Tinto (RIO.L: Quote, Profile, Research, Stock Buzz)."
