  • Could Cerro Moro Be a Game-Changer for Yamana Gold?

    Could Cerro Moro Be a Game-Changer for Yamana Gold?

    Yamana Gold’s (AUY) stock has also underperformed the gold miners’ index (GDX) year-to-date by returning -6.6% as of April 17. AUY’s 4Q17 results disappointed, with the company reporting earnings far below analysts’ expectations. Its EPS (earnings per share) were -$0.20, below analysts’ estimate of $0.03. The major factor driving the loss was a $356 million non-cash impairment charge related to the remeasurement of its Gualcamayo mine and related expansion projects in Argentina. Investors are wary of Yamana’s inconsistent operational results.

    Why IMF Is Worried about the US’s Expanding Debt Profile

    On one hand, it has increased US growth projections due to the stimulus from tax cuts. Since these tax cuts are unfunded, the IMF believes that there will be a need for severe spending cuts in the coming years. It predicts that the US debt-to-GDP (gross domestic product) ratio will expand to 116.9% by 2023, surpassing Italy’s ratio, which should narrow to 116.6% by 2023.

    Will Strong Earnings Help Equities to Detriment of Haven Assets?

    The US launched surgical strikes on Syria over the weekend. Many markets such as Japan and other Asian markets have already shrugged off the strikes. An escalation of tensions, however, either due to Russian retaliation or more strikes from the US and allies could mean the risk-off sentiment in the markets affects equity markets negatively.

  • Which Gold Miners Have Upside Potential after 1Q18

    Which Gold Miners Have Upside Potential after 1Q18

    Among the senior mining companies under review in this series (GDX), Newmont Mining (NEM) is currently trading at the highest EV-to-forward EBITDA (enterprise value to earnings before interest, tax, depreciation, and amortization) multiple, of 8.3x. The company’s slower production growth added to its woes in 2017. Its follow-through on its long-term vision of improving reserves, production, and unit costs by 20% each by 2021 could go a long way in further re-rating its multiple. Barrick Gold’s (ABX) higher financial leverage is still a concern for investors, and the recent issues at its Tanzanian mines have added to its woes.

    Could Kinross’s Plunge Be an Opportunity for Investors?

    On April 9, 2018, Kinross Gold (KGC) said in a press release that “its mining operations in Russia continue to operate according to plan and remain unaffected by the new sanctions announced by the United States on April 6, 2018.” The company also mentioned that it’s closely monitoring the sanction legislation in Canada, the US, and Europe to remain in compliance. While Kinross has been caught in an unwanted situation, there isn’t much negative impact expected from the sanctions to Kinross’s operations. The stock price reaction can probably be considered an overreaction, as everything related to Russia saw sell-offs yesterday.

    Gold Can Regain Its Glitter

    Gold prices have edged up only about 6% in the past year, but even that gain is impressive, writes BMO Capital Markets' Colin Hamilton, given weakness in key fundamental areas. Yes, there have been plenty of geopolitical tensions that could normally boost the metal, but at the same time, 2017 was a great year for stocks, and there has been a "collapse" in U.S. investment in the physical metal and  global coin fabrication, writes Hamilton. Overall, Hamilton expects that in an inflationary environment, along with rising trade concerns, will lead to retail buyers increasing their allocation to gold as a hedge.
