With Newmont In An Earnings Miss Dip, Vetr Upgrades

Chris Dier-Scalise

On Thursday, the Vetr crowd upgraded their rating for Newmont Mining Corp (NYSE: NEM) from 3.5 stars (Buy), issued 17 days ago, to 4.5 stars (Strong Buy). At the time of the upgrade, crowd sentiment for Newmont was primarily positive, with 75 percent of Vetr user ratings bullish.

Newmont issued a pretty disappointing Q4 earnings report at the close of Tuesday's session. The gold extractor missed both EPS and revenue estimates, the former by $0.13 and the latter by over $20 million.

Prior to the earnings miss, Newmont was on a bit of a rally in tune with the price of gold. Both were rising steadily since the tail-end of 2016, Newmont by about 16 percent since December 19 and gold by around 10.73 percent in that same span.
