why-you-shouldnt-sell-goldWhile the exchange-traded fund covering gold miners is outperforming the precious metal itself, McEwen Mining founder and chief owner Robert McEwen said Wednesday that he remains bullish on gold. “I’m a long term believer in gold and I see it ultimately getting to $5,000 an ounce,” McEwen said on CNBC’s “Fast Money.” “Anything short of that, I wouldn’t be hedging.” McEwen, who owns 25 percent of his company and receives no salary, said that he expects gold to hit his price target of $5,000 in the next three to four years. McEwen is also the founder and former chairman and CEO of GoldCorp, now one of his competitors. 25CNBC
