The Top 10 Gold Stocks for 2013: Part 2


4. Eldorado Gold (NYSE: EGO  )
By hiking the ancient silk road -- from its previous foray into China to a new operational focus upon Turkey and Greece -- Eldorado Gold has amassed a peer-leading growth profile that targets a monumental 158% expansion of annual gold production over the next four years. Growing from a larger base this time around, it's reasonable to expect some meaningful challenges along the way for such an aggressive growth trajectory. However, given the undeniable quality of the underlying asset portfolio, paired with an exceptional outlook for continued organic resource growth like the 1.5 million gold ounces added to the Certej project in Romania during 2012, Eldorado presents some of the more exciting upside potential among the larger mid-tier producers. Provided the company continues to execute well as these growth initiatives gather steam in 2013, I see potential for the stock to surpass $18 per share during 2013 for more than a 40% advance.
