The Van Eck International Investors Gold Fund (INIVX) is up 9.3% year to date while gold is up 9%. The fund currently isn't offering the 3:1 or 4:1 leverage portfolio manager Joe Foster was hoping for, but his focus on growth could yield big returns as gold prices head toward $1,300.
The gold fund has 84 holdings and its top five U.S. publicly traded companies are mid- to large-cap names with strong accretive or organic expansion potential. In a recent interview, I asked Foster to reveal his top five and how he plans to outperform the gold price.
