Goldcorp (GG) has the highest EV-to-forward-EBITDA (enterprise value to forward earnings before interest, tax, depreciation, and amortization) multiple of 8.0x among its senior gold miner peers (GDX). Its production growth has remained muted for the last two years, and its costs have trended higher. As we’ve seen in the previous parts of this series, Goldcorp’s production, costs, and reserves are expected to improve significantly over the years, backed by a solid project pipeline, which is progressing on schedule and budget.
At the end of 4Q17, its net debt and adjusted net debt was $2.2 billion and $2.1 billion, respectively, which implies a reduction of 3% and 5%, respectively, from its net and adjusted net debt at the end of 2016. In 2017, the company repaid $160 million in project finance facilities for Pueblo Viejo. Goldcorp has $500 million in debt due March 15, 2018, which it intends to repay through either cash from operations or drawing on its credit facility. It expects liquidity and free cash flow over the next five years to drive down its net debt to zero.
Goldcorp (GG) has one of the strongest project pipelines in the industry. At Penasquito, the Pyrite Leach Project (or PLP) is 62% complete and expected to start commissioning in 4Q18, which is three months ahead of schedule. This project is expected to add ~1 million ounces of gold and 44 million ounces of silver over the current life of the mine.
Goldcorp’s (GG) produced 646,000 ounces of gold in 4Q17, a decline of 15% year-over-year (or YoY). Goldcorp’s full-year production came in at 2.6 million ounces, which is slightly higher than its guidance of 2.5 million ounces. Goldcorp has guided for production of 2.5 million ounces in 2018 with +/-5% variance, which is in line with its previous 2018 guidance as well as the guidance for 2017.
Goldcorp (GG) generated total revenues of $3,423 million in 2017, which is a decline of 2% YoY (year-over-year). Goldcorp’s production costs also fell 9% YoY to $1.89 billion due to the closure of the Marlin mine and sale of the Los Filos mine. Goldcorp’s net earnings were $658 million, or $0.76 per share, for 2017.
Goldcorp (GG) reported its 4Q17 results after the market closed on February 14. It held a conference call the next day to discuss the results. Goldcorp thoroughly beat the consensus EPS (earnings per share) estimate of $0.10 by $0.18.
Compared to its closest peers, Kinross Gold (KGC) has been a higher-cost gold producer. As a result, Kinross Gold is highly leveraged to gold prices compared to its peers (GDX) Goldcorp (GG), Barrick Gold (ABX), and Newmont Mining (NEM). In this part of the series, we’ll see how Kinross is trying to improve its unit costs.
Kinross Gold (KGC) produced 652,710 gold equivalent ounces (or GEOs) for 4Q17 and 2.67 million GEO for 2017. The Americas accounted for 61% of Kinross’s production in 2017. The production at Fort Knox declined YoY, primarily due to lower tons placed on the heap leach pad.
Gold miners (GDX)(GDXJ) face the problem of compensating for every ounce they take out of the ground. Kinross Gold (KGC) has continued to use a gold price assumption of $1,200 per ounce for reserves and $1,400 per ounce for resources since 2011 to estimate reserves and resources at the end of 2017. Kinross’s reserves were 16% lower, at 25.9 million ounces, at the end of 2017 than in 2016.
Senior gold miners, which are large, established miners with various assets in multiple geographies, usually have lower-risk and highly liquid stocks. While there are variations between different miners, as a group, they usually follow gold prices. Senior miners Barrick Gold (ABX), Newmont Mining (NEM), Goldcorp (GG), and Kinross Gold (KGC) make up a substantial 25.4% of the VanEck Vectors Gold Miners ETF (GDX).
Kinross Gold (KGC) also provided an update on its organic development projects along with the 4Q17 and 2017 results. At Round Mountain Phase W, the stripping and initial construction commenced ahead of schedule in late 2017. Kinross Gold’s management maintained, during its latest earnings call, that the Tasiast Phase One expansion is proceeding on schedule and on budget.
Kinross Gold (KGC) released its 4Q17 and 2017 results on February 14, after the market closed, and held a conference call with analysts on February 15. Kinross Gold stock dropped ~7% on February 15, underperforming the VanEck Vectors Gold Miners ETF (GDX), which fell just 1.0%.

Goldcorp (GG) got the earnings season for gold miners off to a nice start with fourth-quarter profits that beat the Bloomberg consensus by 17 cents. Then Barrick Gold (ABX), the world's biggest gold producer by ounces, reported an adjusted net earnings result of 22 cents a share, which beat the Bloomberg consensus estimate by a penny.

Three major gold miners will report earnings in the next two days. As weary investors have known for years, the metal itself or financial equivalents like SPDR Gold Trust (GLD) are usually the better bet than the leading companies who mine for the metal. And that's even the case when the price of the metal is rising, which theoretically, at least, is supposed to be a time when the miners outperform the metal. Over the past 12 months, thanks in part to a falling dollar and solid global economic growth, the price of gold has risen, with SPRD Gold Trust up 8% almost half of the gain of the S&P 500 during that period.
