5 Top Weekly TSX Stocks: Copper Mountain Up on US$439 Million Hudbay Deal

The S&P/TSX Composite Index (INDEXTSI:OSPTX) edged up this past Friday (April 14), opening at 20,564.49.

The index was on track to end the week on a high note, supported by higher oil prices and positive investor sentiment.

Gold continued its upward trend during the period, closing in on its all-time high, with silver also following the rally and hitting US$26 per ounce. “As a speculator, one of the best places cyclically to be is now smaller gold stocks, which are very, very cheap — like all-time lows relative to the price of gold,” Doug Casey of InternationalMan.com told the Investing News Network.

Against that backdrop, some junior resource stocks were on the rise. Here’s a look at the biggest gainers on the TSXV and the factors that moved their share prices over the last five days of trading.
