Which Gold Miners Have Shown Upside Potential since Q3? Since high debt levels can strain a company’s credit rating and growth decisions, it’s important to look at its financial leverage. Barrick Gold (ABX) and Newmont Mining (NEM) have come a long way as far as their financial leverages are concerned.
The gold miner's most important growth project began operations on time and on budget, but it ran into unexpected headwinds courtesy of the government of Argentina.
Businesses tend to perform better when top managers have a high ownership-to-pay ratio, according to the inaugural report of the newly launched Shareholders’ Gold Council, which tracked 17 gold companies. “You have a much bigger ownership in those stocks that have performed above the median and the gold price in the last five years,” Christian Godin, who heads the Shareholders’ Gold Council, said in a telephone interview. The report compared stock ownership by chairmen and women and chief executive officers with five-year compensation, and then compared that ratio to shareholder returns.
Newmont Mining (NEM) saw its debt rise at the peak of the cycle due to expensive acquisitions, which have now been brought under control. Its net debt at the end of the third quarter was ~$1.1 billion compared to $1.9 billion at the end of 2016. Newmont’s net debt-to-adjusted EBITDA multiple was 0.4x at the end of the third quarter compared to 0.7x at the end of the second quarter of 2017 and 1.3x at the end of 2015.

The COMEX gold futures contract has been trading around its "reversion to the mean" since the week of June 17, 2016, and this 200-week simple moving average is now $1,235.1 per troy ounce. Barrick Gold Corporation ( ABX), Yamana Gold Inc. ( AUY), Goldcorp Inc. ( GG) and Newmont Mining Corporation ( NEM) have been lagging gold futures, so investing in these stocks makes sense as an alternative asset allocation given the high probability that the stock market is forming a global bear market. Gold futures and Barrick Gold are in correction territory, while the other gold mining stocks Yamana Gold, Goldcorp and Newmont Mining are in bear market territory.
