By the end of trading, Anglogold Ashanti fell 54 cents (-1.6%) to $32.17 on average volume. Throughout the day, 1.6 million shares of Anglogold Ashanti exchanged hands as compared to its average daily volume of 2.1 million shares.

AngloGold Ashanti Limited primarily engages in the exploration and production of gold. It also produces by-products, such as silver, uranium oxide, and sulfuric acid. Anglogold Ashanti has a market cap of $12.52 billion and is part of the basic materials sector. The company has a P/E ratio of 10.3, above the average metals & mining industry P/E ratio of 10.1 and below the S&P 500 P/E ratio of 17.7. Shares are down 23% year to date as of the close of trading on Monday. Currently there is one analyst that rates Anglogold Ashanti a buy, no analysts rate it a sell, and two rate it a hold.

TheStreet Ratings rates Anglogold Ashanti as a hold. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its robust revenue growth, impressive record of earnings per share growth and compelling growth in net income. However, as a counter to these strengths, we find that the stock has had a generally disappointing performance in the past year.

On the positive front, Augusta Resource Corporation ( AZC), up 11.4%, Kingold Jewelry ( KGJI), up 6.8%, Timberline Resources Corporation ( TLR), up 4.7%, and Polymet Mining ( PLM), up 4.2%, were all gainers within the metals & mining industry with Teck Resources Ltd Class B ( TCK) being today's featured metals & mining industry winner.

For investors not wanting singular stock exposure, ETFs may be of interest. Investors who are bullish on the metals & mining industry could consider SPDR S&P Metals & Mining ETF ( XME) while those bearish on the metals & mining industry could consider PowerShares DB Base Metals Sht ETN ( BOS).
