Would You Rather Own Facebook, Or All The Precious Metal Companies In The World?

Bar chart of Facebook vs. all publicly listed precious metals companies

Last week we compared the five largest companies on the NASDAQ to the publicly listed metals & mining universe. This week we refined the universe a bit more and compared the tech behemoth Facebook to the precious metal players.

Facebook (FB), which boasts a market cap of $150 billion, is nearly equal to the entire publicly listed precious metals universe, which has a market cap of just $170 billion!

That begs the question: Would you rather own Facebook or every single publicly listed precious metals company in the world?

With Goldcorp (GG; TSX:G), Newmont Mining (NEM), and Barrick (ABX; TSX:ABX) declining on average 80%, it is hard to conceive a much lower valuation for the sector.
