The Canadian gold mining stocks on our list boast superior free cash flow yields

The gold mining industry is expected to have a good year in 2020 given the record amount of global monetary stimulus that has propelled the gold price to its current level of US$1700 per ounce. Those companies with a history of superior profitability are poised to perform best during a rising gold price environment. Today we have identified three Canadian gold mining stocks that are most profitable based on free cash flow yield, a metric that gives investors an indication as to how much cash a business is generating after taxes relative to how much it costs to operate.

*Returns are based on closing stock prices as of May 11, 2020
