Can NEM Maintain Its Stock Outperformance after Its Q2 Results?

Newmont Mining (NEM) is one of the few gold mining stocks to have given positive returns in the first half. As of June 30, it has returned 0.5%, compared to a loss of 4.0% for the VanEck Vectors Gold Miners ETF (GDX). The company is expecting its unit costs to rise in 2018 due to the working off of higher stripping at Carlin, Boddington, Ahafo, and Twin Creeks.
