  • Will The Gold Market Continue to Heat Up?

    By Lior Cohen - August 19, 2013 | Tickers: GG, GLD, AUY

    The gold market has started to recover in the past several weeks: During August, the price of gold rose by 4.5%. This rally may have positively affected gold producer’s stock such as Goldcorp (NYSE: GG): Share of the company rose by 17.9% during the past month. Will gold price continue to rise? Is it time to reconsider investing in gold and gold producers?

  • Investing In Gold

    By Chris Johnson - August 16, 2013 | Tickers: GG, IAG, KGC

    With the much talked about headwinds faced by the companies in the gold mining sector, the debate continues as to whether investing in a top gold grosser is still a worthwhile idea. Braving the tumultuous macroeconomic environment pressure brought on by the excessively unfavorable conditions building up in the world economy, gold mining stocks have been a subject of widespread speculation.

  • This Mining Stock is in Hot Water

    By Marie Palumbo - August 14, 2013 | Tickers: ABX, GG, SLW, GLD

    Gold’s shimmer is losing its luster. And as gold grows more dull, Barrick Gold (NYSE: ABX) feels more and more pain. Barrick is running into considerable trouble as gold, its primary commodity, falls down from the stratosphere.

    In 2012, Barrick, which is the world’s largest gold miner, saw its market cap dip below that of much smaller mining company Goldcorp (NYSE: GG). At that time, Barrick’s market more »

  • There is a Bigger Problem Overshadowing Gold Miners

    By Rupert Hargreaves - August 14, 2013 | Tickers: ABX, GG, NEM

    Rising CAPEX, write-downs and falling profits are all factors that are now affecting gold miners, pushing stock prices and valuations to lows not seen since, well in some cases, ever!

    However, despite these well publicized factors, one of the bigger issues affecting the company's is the creeping price of gold production, which has been rising much faster than inflation and the price of gold over the past three years more »

  • Why GOLD Should Shine in Your Portfolio

    By Chris Bailey - August 13, 2013 | Tickers: GG, NEM, GOLD

    I have long been fascinated by gold and gold mining company investment.

    I found this Oxford Economics report commissioned by the World Gold Council in 2011 particularly useful as it showed that gold (page 6) is an asset class that not only retains but increase its real (after inflation) price over time.  Later on in the report (page 33) the authors show that there is a positive impact of gold more »

  • Barrick Gold's Cost Cutting Improves Its Position

    By William Alder - August 12, 2013 | Tickers: AEM, ABX, GG, NEM

    Barrick Gold (NYSE: ABX) has been hammered in the last year or so. Production problems and falling gold prices are largely to blame. The company recently announced it took $8.6 billion in write downs and a quarterly loss of $8.56 billion. It also cut its dividend by 75%. Is the worst over for Barrick?

    Some good news from its recent earnings report is that the company has seen more »

  • Don't Be Scared of Write-Downs From These Gold Companies

    By Vladimir Zernov - July 29, 2013 | Tickers: ABX, GG, NEM

    The earnings season is at full speed, and big gold stocks have started reporting their financial results. Two of the biggest gold companies have already reported write-downs due to lower gold prices. Goldcorp (NYSE: GG) has written down $1.96 billion, while Newmont Mining (NYSE: NEM) has written down $1.8 billion. Both stocks have been under pressure this year due to lower gold prices. Goldcorp has lost 21% while more »

  • Is a Dividend Cut Reason to Sell This Mining Stock?

    By Bob Ciura - July 26, 2013 | Tickers: FCX, GG, NEM

    If the eyes are the window into a person’s soul, then on a corporate level, we can say the same about dividends. Dividend payouts cannot be faked. Earnings can be massaged and managed from one quarter to the next, but dividends are almost always paid in real cash. A company can only maintain dividends without true earnings power for so long. Over the long term, dividends are a great more »

  • Does the Price of Gold Make Goldcorp a Bargain?

    By Daniel Jennings - July 17, 2013 | Tickers: ABX, GG, NEM

    The price of gold has been in a free fall for the last year, which has made me think about gold producers. In particular, I’ve been wondering about Goldcorp (NYSE: GG), the Canadian miner that has long been a value investor’s favorite.

    Goldcorp is cheap, but is it a bargain? The answer on the surface appears to be yes. Despite the downward spiral gold prices have been on more »

  • Not All Gold Miners Are Glittering

    By Madhukar Dubey - July 11, 2013 | Tickers: ABX, GG, NEM

    There are winners and losers in every gold rush; for every miner that turned up gold in California in the 19th century, hundreds got absolutely nothing. In 2013, the value of gold keeps climbing due to increased demand from emerging markets.

    According to the World Gold Council, global demand for gold was 4,361.8 tons last year, whereas mining companies produced around 2,817 tons in the same more »

  • Once in a Lifetime Opportunity to Buy Barrick Gold!

    By John Dowdee - July 5, 2013 | Tickers: ABX, GG, NEM

    Baron Rothschild, who made a fortune after Napoleon was defeated at Waterloo, is credited with the saying: “The time to buy is when there is blood in the streets.” In more recent times, Warren Buffett expressed a similar sentiment when he opined: “Be greedy when others are fearful.” These snippets of market wisdom have never been truer than now when you consider the total collapse of gold mining stocks.

  • Now Is the Time to Look at This Gold Giant

    By Vladimir Zernov - July 2, 2013 | Tickers: ABX, GG, NEM

    This year is a nightmare for gold investors. The precious metal has already lost 25% since January. The situation in the mining stocks is even worse. Companies like Barrick Gold (NYSE: ABX), Newmont Mining (NYSE: NEM), and Goldcorp (NYSE: GG) are down 56%, 34%, and 32%, respectively. The prices are starting to look attractive. However, the falling gold price poses serious threats to the profitability of gold miners. Is it more »

  • Has Gold Hit a Bottom?

    By Sam Mattera - July 2, 2013 | Tickers: GG, IAU, GLD

    There is perhaps no asset more controversial than gold. Its critics characterize it as a barbarous relic -- a rock with no inherent value. Its supporters build their portfolios around it, arguing that gold is a safer bet than even the US dollar.

    While it has been great to hold the yellow metal for most of the previous decade, the last two years have not been kind to gold. After peaking more »

  • Scary Days Down the Gold Mine

    By John McKenna - June 28, 2013 | Tickers: AU, ABX, GG

    Two years ago, before I became a Fool blogger, I was a blogger for a libertarian movie company called Silver Circle. My job then was to write articles and share stories regarding the Federal Reserve and how it was damaging the dollar. To emphasize these points, I would typically point to the sky-high price of gold and how its strength reflected the growing weakness in the dollar, as well as more »

  • Could This Royalty Company Turn It Around in 2013?

    By Lior Cohen - June 27, 2013 | Tickers: ABX, GG, RGLD, GLD

    Shares of Royal Gold (NASDAQ: RGLD), much like many other gold stocks, haven’t performed well during 2013 (up to date) as they tumbled by more than 35%. Nonetheless, Royal Gold’s business model is different than other gold companies as it relies on royalty payments from precious metal miners; this type of business model lowers the company’s risk compared to the risk that gold producers face. Will Royal more »

  • When Will the Low Gold Price Start Affecting Miners?

    By Rupert Hargreaves - June 25, 2013 | Tickers: ABX, GG, NEM

    I recently wrote this article on the falling price of gold and how it was going to hurt mining companies. In summary, the article highlighted that the average all-in cost of the 20 largest gold miners in the world was $1,306 per ounce in Q4 2012; and if the price of gold falls below $1,300 per ounce, about 30% to 40% of mine production throughout the world is more »

  • A Distraction From My Dividend Growth Investing Strategy

    By Michael Weber - June 25, 2013 | Tickers: ABX, GG, IAG, AUY

    I am a dividend growth investor. I like to buy dividend paying companies with long track records of increasing dividends and strong competitive advantages. I look for higher than average dividend growth and a steadily increasing stream of income. Oh, and I also only like to buy when the stock is quite undervalued. This criterion has me waiting for prices to drop a lot of the time. I like to more »

  • Gold Dividends Unsafe

    By Rupert Hargreaves - June 14, 2013 | Tickers: ABX, GG, NEM, AUY

    Gold miners are not known for their shareholder returns. In fact, miners are often criticized for not returning enough cash to shareholders, choosing instead to spend their income on expensive capital projects.

    That said, recently miners have changed course and are now offering dividends to shareholders but with some of these yields touching 4-5%, they are way above the market average.

    Can they afford it?

    By Madhukar Dubey - June 14, 2013 | Tickers: ABX, GG, NEM

    According to the World Gold Council, 2011 was the golden period for gold as global demand for gold increased 0.4% to 4,067 tons at an estimated value of $205.5 billion, the highest level, exceeding $200 billion, since 1997. The increase was mainly due to the investment scenario in India, China, and Europe.
