  • Which Gold Miners Show Upside Potential after Q2 2018?

    Which Gold Miners Show Upside Potential after Q2 2018?

    Gold prices haven’t been able to catch a break even as geopolitical concerns have become more pronounced. On August 15, gold prices fell to a 19-month low of $1,173 per ounce as the US dollar continued its winning streak. The precious metal appears to have lost some of its safe-haven appeal.

    Could Newmont’s Free Cash Flow Rise in the Coming Quarters?

    What Could Drive Newmont Mining Stock in the Rest of 2018? Investors are usually interested in the company’s FCF (free cash flow) progression, as it enables miners (GDX)(RING) to optimize their financial leverage, invest in projects supporting long-term value, and provide shareholder returns. In this context, we’ll look at Newmont Mining’s (NEM) FCF generation in 2018 and its future capability to generate cash.

    Why President Trump Needs a Friendly Fed Like Never Before

    Governments can sometimes be at odds with their central banks, especially when the central banks are on a tightening spree. In an interview with Reuters, President Trump said that he’s “not thrilled” with rising interest rates. As Trump looks at ways to contain the US trade deficit, a stronger US dollar could spoil the party.

    Gold Stocks Look Cheap Compared to the S&P 500—What’s Next?

    Along with gold, gold miner stocks (GDX) (NUGT) are also seeing a lot of selling pressure lately. Gold equities are essentially a leveraged play on gold prices and as such, they usually move in the direction of gold prices with greater intensity. On August 15, the VanEck Vectors Gold Miners ETF (GDX) has lost 20.0% of its value YTD, almost double the losses seen by the SPDR Gold Shares ETF (GLD).

    How Would an Emerging Market Currency Crisis Impact Gold?

    The current crisis started when Turkish lira plunged and started to pressure other emerging market (EEM) currencies. While the outright sell-off in emerging market currencies has stopped, investors are still worried about the contagion spreading to these countries. The US (SPY)(IVV) interest rates are already moving higher with the Federal Reserve on the path of even more hikes in the quarters ahead.

    Investors’ Positions as Gold Drops to a 19-Month Low

    Gold prices (GLD) haven’t been able to catch a break even as geopolitical concerns become more pronounced. On August 15, gold prices fell to a 19-month low of $1,173 per ounce as the US dollar continued its winning streak. Despite the trade war concerns, the political and economic tensions in the EU (European Union) (HEDJ), and Turkey’s (TUR) latest currency and economic crisis, gold has behaved like any other risk asset and not gained any bids.

    Do Not Worry About the Market, Worry About Individual Stocks

    Yes, the S&P 500 (SPY) is still up 6% for the year, but stocks are all over the place.  Since early May, the SOX (Semiconductor Index) is barely up, while Consumer Staples are up 10%.   Are tariffs good?  Not for US Steel (X) or Alcoa (AA) and certainly not for China.  Chinese equities (FXI) are down 20-25% across the board.  Is Turkey the problem?  Eh, maybe eventually.  But usually macro scares move to the background quickly.  Turkey is not in our top 30 trading partners.  Is it rates?  Maybe.  Maybe inversion is more the issues.  Real estate is bad.  Look at the comments from Redfin (RDFN).  What about commodities?  Very bad also.  Oil (USO) down, gold (GLD) down, copper down (CPX). At Market Realist, we have been talking about the upcoming earnings cliff since April.  This week we really saw that start to play out – specifically with semiconductor names.  Our Market Realist Pro subscribers know that we put Lam Research (LRCX) on our “avoid” list in July.  Today, after Applied Materials’ (AMAT) earnings, that stock is now down $25 since we called it out.  Micron has gotten crushed to $46 from when we said avoid it in May.

    Falling Commodity Prices: Trouble for US Equities?

    Usually, equity and commodity prices share a positive correlation. However, gold (GLD) is an obvious exception. The correlation between equities and commodities isn’t hard to explain. Commodities, like equities, tend to do well when demand is strong during periods of high economic growth. Commodities are weak in risk-off environments. Equity markets also fall during such periods.

    Out of Favor Gold Is Poised to Stage an Upside Reversal

    Gold has been "out of style" in recent months. Sentiment readings and positioning in the futures markets appear to be at an extreme. The Dollar Index has made a new high for its recent move up. Is it all all over for gold or are we looking at an oversold extreme that could produce a trade-able rally? Let's see if we can separate some usable information from the dross.

    Why an Autumn Rally in Gold Could Be around the Corner

    As we’ve discussed previously in this series, the SPDR Gold Trust ETF (GLD) has fallen ~8.0% year-to-date and ~11.0% from its April peak. Historically, gold prices have declined in the summer months, only to climb in August onward due to the seasonal pattern of demand for gold.

    Turkey’s Crisis Didn’t Increase Gold’s Safe-Haven Bids

    Usually, gold (GLD) is considered to be a “safe-haven asset” and gains due to economic or political turmoil. The latest evidence is Turkey’s economic and currency crisis. On August 13, gold prices (IAU) fell to 17-month lows despite the raging crisis in Turkey, which also seems to be spreading to other regions.

    Why Goldcorp’s Strong Long-Term Outlook Is Intact despite Weak Q2

    Goldcorp (GG) reported its Q2 2018 earnings on July 25, 2018, after the market closed and held its earnings conference call on July 26.
