Gold’s appeal to investors falls in a stronger economy.


Newmont Mining fell, hurt by a big dip in gold prices. The Colorado company’s stock was the biggest decliner on the S&P 500 Friday. It will report quarterly results July 25. The price of gold tumbled Friday after the June US employment report showed companies adding more jobs.
