Canadian stocks fell, for the biggest drop since June, as a decline in gold and silver spurred losses in metal producers and energy companies slumped the most in eight weeks.

B2Gold Corp. (BTO) plunged 13 percent to pace declines among gold mining companies after announcing a $225 million note offering. Endeavour Silver Corp. and Silvercorp Metals Inc. slipped at least 2.9 percent as the price of the metal snapped the longest winning streak since January. Penn West Petroleum Ltd. and Bonterra Energy Corp. retreated more than 1.2 percent as crude fell.

The Standard & Poor’s/TSX Composite Index (SPTSX) fell 148.90 points, or 1.2 percent, to 12,588.02 at 4 p.m. in Toronto. The index has gained 1.2 percent this year, the third-worst performance among developed markets ahead of Singapore and Hong Kong.

“Nothing goes up forever, the gold commodity had a good run as well as the stocks last week and they’re taking a bit of a pause today,” said John Kinsey, a fund manager with Caldwell Securities Ltd. in Toronto.

With gold, silver and Uranium stocks being out of favor one must decide if this is a problem or an opportunity. We have steadfastly refused to buy gold and silver mining stocks for the last two years and as evidenced by the HUI we feel that our decision to hold back has been vindicated. The damage done to the mining sector may not be over yet but this demise is starting to offer up some exciting opportunities in my view.
