Confident Investor comments: The target price on this stock is likely a bit too high. Royal Gold is a reasonable play on the gold price and that is driving the valuation. If the price of this stock starts to approach the target price but the price of gold has not similarly increased then there would be instability in the stock price. However, at this price and at this time, I think that a Confident Investor can confidently invest in this stock.
