Kirkland Lake Gold Ltd. (TSX:KL)

Kirkland Lake Gold Ltd. engages in the exploration and development of gold properties. Formed in 1983, and currently headed by CEO Anthony Makuch, the company provides employment to 993 people and with the market cap of CAD CA$5.05B, it falls under the mid-cap group.

KL is expected to deliver a buoyant earnings growth over the next couple of years of 20.66%, driven by a positive double-digit revenue growth of 26.72% and cost-cutting initiatives. It appears that KL’s profitability may be sustainable as the fundamental push is top-line expansion rather than unmaintainable cost-cutting activities. We see this bottom-line expansion directly benefiting shareholders, with expected positive return on equity of 17.29%. KL ticks the boxes for robust growth generation on all levels of line items, which makes it an appealing stock to dig into deeper. A potential addition to your portfolio?
