Yamana Gold (NYSE:AUY) stock fell following its quarterly report. The Toronto-based gold producer beat earnings estimates but missed on revenue. This left Yamana Gold stock falling back towards 52-week lows.Source: Shutterstock Yamana Gold has moved to stabilize its balance sheet in recent weeks. However, until the gold market sees significant upward price movements, both AUY and other gold stocks will see little traction.For its first quarter, the company reported earnings of two cents per share. This beat analyst estimates by one penny per share. AUY lost three cents per share in the first quarter of 2018.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading TipsHowever, revenues of $407.1 million missed expectations by $7.39 million. They also fell 10.5% from year-ago levels. Even worse, revenue fell short in a quarter where production exceeded analyst estimates. AUY stock fell by more than 3% in morning trading following the announcement. * 7 Energy Stocks to Buy to Light Up Your Portfolio During the quarter, Yamana Gold sold its Chapada copper and gold mine in Brazil to Lundin Mining (OTCMKTS:LUNMF) for over $1 billion. As our own Will Ashworth points out, this allows Yamana to bring down its $1.793 billion debt burden. Yamana Gold Is a Proxy for Gold PricesI agree with my colleague that this sale strengthens the balance sheet of AUY stock. Does it make AUY a buy? I'm not so sure.On the surface, the forward price-to-earnings (PE) ratio of around 14.9 appears reasonable. It looks even better when traders factor in predicted earnings increases. Wall Street expects profit growth to average about 40% per year over the next five years.Still, such forecasts tend not to guide gold stocks. Historically, Yamana Gold stock and the equities of peers such as Newmont Goldcorp (NYSE:NEM) and Lundin Mining tend to become proxies for gold prices. Unfortunately for Yamana Gold investors, gold prices have seen little traction over the last few years. AUY stock briefly surpassed $20 per share in 2012 as gold prices surged toward $2,000 per oz.However, the price of gold has not exceeded $1,400 per oz. since 2013. Consequently, it has remained range-bound since that year. Over the last 5.5 years, gold has bottomed at about $1,050 per oz. and has seen a top of around $1,375 per oz.This has left Yamana Gold stock trading in a range. As a result, the stock price trades at levels it saw in 2015. Now, with gold at around $1,275 per oz., AUY stock has traded between $2 per share and just above $3 per share for the last two years. Yamana Gold and the Looming BearGold tends to rise when investors lose confidence in the reserve currency, which remains the U.S. dollar. However, in the midst of a crisis, history shows that traders lose confidence in gold.At the height of the 2008 financial crisis, gold fell in value as investors flocked to the perceived safety of the U.S. dollar. Gold did not rise again until 2010 when investors started to want an alternative to the dollar. After about three years, the price of gold fell back to the range where it trades today.As things stand now, I don't see any catalyst that will take gold sufficiently higher. If history serves as a guide, a stock market swoon will become bearish for the dollar, and by extension, AUY stock. As long as investors retain their confidence in the dollar, neither gold nor gold stocks will break out of their respective ranges. The Bottom Line on Yamana Gold StockAfter earnings, expect little activity from AUY stock until it can rise out of its trading range. AUY sold off as the company missed revenue estimates despite increased production.On the surface, AUY looks increasingly solid. Selling the Chapada mine should reduce its debt. Moreover, the reasonable PE ratio and the high levels of profit growth predicted should presumably send Yamana Gold stock higher.Unfortunately, gold stocks tend to follow the price of gold. As gold has remained range-bound, so too has AUY stock. Even worse, no apparent catalyst has appeared that would take gold higher.If investors lost confidence in the dollar, both gold and Yamana Gold stock would become a screaming buy at current levels. However, as things stand now, things will likely get worse before conditions improve for AUY.As of this writing, Will Healy did not hold a position in any of the aforementioned stocks.

Franco-Nevada (FNV) appears to be on a promising long-term trajectory thanks to a healthy portfolio of streaming and royalty agreements put in place a few years ago.
Canada's Lundin Mining Corp said on Thursday it does not plan to revise its hostile bid for fellow base-metal miner Nevsun Resources Ltd after it was trumped by a C$1.86 billion ($1.42 billion) offer from China's Zijin Mining Group Co Ltd. Lundin made five informal proposals and took a C$1.4 billion bid made directly to shareholders in July, all of which were rejected as inadequate by Nevsun. Lundin, whose bid expires on Nov. 9, said on Thursday that it does not plan to amend any of the terms in its offer.
Franco-Nevada (FNV) will benefit from a strong Oil & Gas segment aided by higher oil prices and acquisitions that will offset the impact of lower production from mining assets, mainly Candelaria.
China's Zijin Mining Group Co will buy Canadian gold and copper miner Nevsun Resources Ltd for about C$1.86 billion ($1.41 billion), the companies said on Wednesday, after Nevsun rejecting multiple bids from rival Lundin Mining Corp. Zijin Mining, which specialises in gold, copper and zinc, will offer C$6.00 per share in cash for Nevsun, the companies said, representing a premium of about 21 percent to Nevsun's close in Toronto on Tuesday. Lundin took its all-cash offer of C$4.75 per share directly to Nevsun shareholders on July 26, after its five previous proposals were rejected by the company.

Canadian miner Nevsun Resources Ltd on Thursday urged its shareholders to reject a hostile C$1.4 billion ($1.07 billion) offer from rival Lundin Mining Corp, and said the board was evaluating other potential alternatives. Lundin took its all-cash offer of C$4.75 per share directly to Nevsun shareholders on July 26, after its five previous proposals were rejected by the company. Vancouver-based Nevsun said on Thursday it has entered into confidentiality agreements with 18 interested parties, and has received four proposals from mining and smelting companies, indicating their willingness to purchase up to a 19.9 percent equity interest in Nevsun.
Lundin Mining Corp launched a hostile C$1.4 billion ($1.1 billion) takeover bid for fellow Canadian miner Nevsun Resources Ltd on Thursday, saying it had failed to convince Nevsun's board to strike a friendly deal over the past nine months. In a direct pitch to Nevsun shareholders for its C$4.75 a share offer, cash-rich Lundin said in a circular it became apparent over time that Nevsun management was unlikely to agree to a transaction, despite multiple attempts to address its concerns. "Each time we presented a proposal, the goal post changed," said outgoing Lundin CEO Paul Conibear on a conference call Thursday.
Lundin Mining Corp. formally launched its hostile takeover of Nevsun Resources Ltd. Thursday after it said successive proposals to buy the Vancouver-based miner were rejected by its board. Paul Conibear, Lundin’s chief executive officer, urged Nevsun shareholders to support the takeover, arguing the company will need significant financing to develop its Timok copper-gold project in Serbia and the Bisha mine in Eritrea. Lundin has been trying to reach an agreement to acquire Nevsun since October.
Canada's Lundin Mining Corp said on Thursday that it formally commenced an offer to acquire Nevsun Resources Ltd for C$4.75 per share in cash, valuing the base metals miner at around C$1.44 billion ($1.10 billion). Earlier this month, Nevsun had said that rival Lundin's offer of C$4.75 undervalues the company and its assets. Lundin Mining said it intends to mail the offer to Nevsun's security holders.
Canada's Lundin Mining Corp said on Wednesday that Chief Executive Officer Paul Conibear has announced retirement plans just as the base metal miner is set to make a formal offer for Nevsun Resources Ltd. The company said Conibear, who led the company for seven years, will be replaced by Chief Financial Officer Marie Inkster and that the transition process will be completed by the end of the year. Conibear's retirement comes as the cash-rich base metals producer readies a formal C$4.75 a share cash offer for Nevsun shareholders after previous proposals were rejected by its fellow Canadian miner.
Nevsun Resources Ltd said on Tuesday rival Lundin Mining Corp's most recent offer to buy the base metals miner ignores the "fundamental value" of the company and its assets. Nevsun's Chief Executive Officer Peter Kukielski said in a statement that Lundin's notional takeover offer represents only a 13 percent premium to Nevsun's closing trading price on Monday. Nevsun's shares had closed at C$4.21 on Monday.
