Randgold Resources (RRS) operates in countries most international businesses avoid, exercises no control over the price of its one product, and pays a smaller dividend than several of its peers. Despite this, it is one of the most expensive stocks in the FTSE 100.
For this special podcast, Investors Chronicle reporter Alex Newman tries to uncover the allure of this gold miner, and gold investments in general. Featuring Randgold chief executive Mark Bristow, Panmure Gordon commodities and mining analyst Kieron Hodgson, and Alistair Hewitt, head of market intelligence at the World Gold Council.
Produced by Alex Newman, with music from Blue Dot Sessions.
