7 Stocks to Buy That Will Benefit From Inflation - 1 of 7

#1 - Barrick Gold (NYSE:GOLD)

Not to be cliché, but it’s impossible to offer advice about stocks that will benefit from inflation without mentioning gold. And a popular way to invest in gold is via mining stocks. This brings me to Barrick Gold (NYSE:GOLD), the second-largest gold miner in the world. Only Newmont Mining (NYSE:NEM) is larger.

At some point, $6 trillion in spending is not going to end well. And that has many investors buying gold as a hedge against inflation. And if the analyst community is to be believed this trend is unlikely to end anytime soon. The consensus price target of 13 analysts gives GOLD stock a price target of $33.25 which is 58% higher than its current price.  And the company has 11 “buy” ratings and one “strong buy” among those analysts.

Barrick recently issued $250 million in dividends to shareholders. And that’s only the first tranche of what the company pledges to total $750 million that it will pay out in dividends.
