Among the stocks we’ve discussed throughout this series, Tahoe Resources (TAHO) is trading at the lowest forward EV-to-EBITDA (enterprise value to earnings before interest, tax, depreciation, and amortization) multiple of 4.7x. The stock is trading at a huge discount of 60% to its trailing-five-year average. Tahoe Resources’ stock price, as well as analysts’ corresponding estimates, took a severe dive after the Guatemalan government’s decision to suspend its Escobal mine license on July 5, 2017. Its valuation multiple has also fallen 27% since July.
Pan American Silver (PAAS) stock has outperformed its peers (SIL) as well as silver prices (SLV) YTD (year-to-date). PAAS has fallen 1.4% YTD, and SLV and SIL have fallen 3.8% and 8.1%, respectively, YTD as of March 16, 2018. PAAS’s strong operational performance in 2017 is the major reason behind the stock’s outperformance.
First Majestic Silver’s (AG) stock price has seen the highest fall among its peers (SIL) YTD (year-to-date) in 2018. Analysts expect First Majestic Silver to see revenue of $347.7 million in 2018, which implies a YoY (year-over-year) rise of 37.8%. Analysts’ estimates for 2019 imply another rise of 26.1% YoY.
Short interest is moderate for AG with between 5 and 10% of shares outstanding currently on loan. The last change in the short interest score occurred more than 1 month ago and implies that there has been little change in sentiment among investors who seek to profit from falling equity prices. The net inflows of $1.90 billion over the last one-month into ETFs that hold AG are not among the highest of the last year and have been slowing.
