Top 10 Stocks To Watch For 2019

While news out of Washington is keeping everyone on edge the market is taking a beating. Toggling back and forth between Twitter and Yahoo Finance, the few sectors that are steady green are minerals and gold… well, I guess gold is technically a mineral, so there you have it. While gold prices surge and industrial minerals are seeing an upward trend, Increasing global demand combined with a worldwide shortage has made zinc a red-hot commodity, and mining companies are racing to cash-in on the shortage.

Kootenay Zinc Corporation (OTC:KTNNF) (CSE:ZNK.CN) is one of the mining exploration companies poised to capitalize on the supply and demand imbalance in the zinc market. Kootenay Zinc, based in Vancouver, BC is engaged in the discovery of large-scale sedimentary-exhalative (SEDEX) zinc deposits. The company is primarily focused on its Sully Property, located just 18 miles from the historic Sullivan Mine. The Sullivan Mine was one of the world’s most prolific producers of silver, zinc and lead deposits, with cumulative production valued at US$49 billion. Mining experts affiliated with Kootenay Zinc anticipate the Sully Project could potentially match or exceed the production value of the Sullivan Mine.

    Wall Street finished the week on a low note on Friday, dealing another losing day to investors already hard-hit from declines in previous trading sessions. Today’s culprit was a poor labor report, which showed that the U.S. economy produced only 20,000 new nonfarm payroll jobs during the month of February. Many stocks suffered much more dramatic losses than the roughly 0.1% to 0.2% decline that major indexes saw, with earnings playing a key role for several of them. American Outdoor Brands (NASDAQ:AOBC), Eventbrite (NYSE:EB), and El Pollo Loco Holdings (NASDAQ:LOCO) were among the worst performers. Here’s why they did so poorly.

Even with that as a positive backdrop, some companies weren’t able to avoid bad news that sent their shares lower. Tesla (NASDAQ:TSLA), Apogee Enterprises (NASDAQ:APOG), and General Mills (NYSE:GIS) were among the worst performers on the day. Here’s why they did so poorly.
