Which Gold Miners Have Shown Upside Potential since Q3? One way to assess a company’s liquidity is to calculate its current ratio. Newmont Mining (NEM) is doing the best on this front with a ratio exceeding 4.0x.
Among the gold miners (RING) (GDX) we’re discussing in this series, Newmont Mining (NEM) and Barrick Gold (ABX) beat analysts’ earnings expectations in the third quarter. However, even for these two, the results weren’t out-and-out beats, as they slipped on top line expectations.
Kinross Gold’s (KGC) liquidity position at the end of the third quarter was reflected its strategic investments. The company had cash and cash equivalents of $500 million in the third quarter compared to $918.7 million at the end of the second quarter. This liquidity position is significant given that the company doesn’t have any debt maturity until 2021.
Newmont Mining’s (NEM) AISC (all-in sustaining costs) for the third quarter came in at $927 per ounce, implying a fall of 1% compared to the same quarter last year.
Barrick Gold (ABX) reported AISC (all-in sustaining costs) of $785 per ounce and a cost of sales of $850 per ounce in the third quarter. Its AISC were 1.7% higher YoY (year-over-year) due to lower ounces sold, and its costs improved 8.3% sequentially. Its costs in the third quarter were in line with its guidance.
IAMGOLD (IAG) was the best-performing gold stock of 2017, returning 51.4% for the year. It significantly outperformed the VanEck Vectors Gold Miners ETF (GDX) as well as the SPDR Gold Shares ETF (GLD). Although it hasn’t performed as well in 2018, its operating performance has been strong.
Goldcorp (GG) has quite a strong project pipeline in the gold industry. Goldcorp provided an update on the progress of these projects in its third-quarter earnings call. Peñasquito’s Pyrite Leach Project was fully constructed by the end of the third quarter and is undergoing pre-commissioning activities.
Gold bugs, pull the gold bar out from beneath your mattress and admire its luster as the precious metal's price catches a bid. As of Oct. 23, gold futures for December 2018 are up 2.4% for the month, with several analysts predicting further gains. "We have a bullish outlook through the end of the year and into next year," said Jim Steel, chief precious metals analyst at HSBC, as reported in a CNBC article. Gold prices are likely to be supported in the near term by improved emerging market physical demand and short covering during periods of equity market volatility.
One way to assess a company’s liquidity is to calculate its current ratio. Newmont Mining (NEM) and Kinross Gold (KGC) are doing the best among senior miners with ratios of 4.6x and 3.7x, respectively. Goldcorp (GG) and Yamana Gold (AUY), on the other hand, have the lowest current ratios of 1.01x and 1.04x, respectively.
Among the gold miners (RING) (GDX) we’re discussing in this series, only Newmont Mining (NEM) beat analysts’ expectations in the second quarter. Stock reactions to the companies’ beats and misses and the extent of gold’s beats and misses varied among miners.
Newmont Mining’s (NEM) AISC (all-in sustaining costs) totaled $1,024 per ounce in the second quarter, 16.0% higher YoY (year-over-year) and 5.2% higher sequentially. This represents the temporary rise in costs for Newmont Mining in 2018 as the company executes its stripping campaigns at Carlin, Twin Creeks, Boddington, and Yanacocha.
Kinross Gold’s (KGC) liquidity position at the end of the second quarter wasn’t much different than it was at the end of the first quarter. It ended the second quarter with cash and cash equivalents of $918.7 million. Investors should note that this liquidity position is more significant since the company doesn’t have any debt maturity until 2021.
Barrick Gold (ABX) reported AISC (all-in sustaining costs) of $856 per ounce and cost of sales of $882 per ounce in the second quarter. Its cost of sales reached 22.0%, and its AISC was 21.0% higher YoY (year-over-year). These costs were also higher than the company’s guidance ranges for the full year. However, some of these higher costs were anticipated by the company.
