Company Overview and News
Eldorado Gold (EGO) stock suffered a great deal in 2017 due to the standoff with the Greek government and some technical issues at its Turkey mines. The company’s stock price fell ~56% in 2017 in addition to the YTD (year-to-date) decline of 33.6%. The VanEck Vectors Gold Miners ETF (GDX) and the SPDR Gold Shares (GLD) fell 3.9% and 0.9%, respectively, YTD. Agnico Eagle Mines (AEM), Yamana Gold (AUY), and IAMGOLD (IAG) returned -7.
BUENOS AIRES (Reuters) - Despite Argentine President Mauricio Macri’s pro-business policies, international mining companies are still reluctant to invest in Argentina amid a lack of regulatory clarity.
It seems precious metals’ rout has also affected precious metal mining companies’ stock prices. In this article, we’ll discuss moving averages, returns, and RSI (relative strength index) scores for Sibanye Gold (SBGL), Franco-Nevada (FNV), Yamana Gold (AUY), and Barrick Gold (ABX), which have fallen 43.1%, 11.1%, 8%, and 8.8%, respectively.
Although the markets have their own logic, highly capitalized gold-mining companies seemingly should belong on any “stocks to buy” list. Thanks to rising geopolitical tensions and soaring trading sentiment, many folks seek safe-haven assets. While gold stocks seemingly offer a viable solution, their overall performance has been unusually disappointing.
Yamana Gold Inc. (AUY - Free Report) declared the first gold and silver production at its Cerro Moro mine located in Santa Cruz province, Argentina. The mine is a high-grade gold and silver operation sourcing ore from a combination of open pit and underground mining. Production ramp up at the mine remains on track and the company expects commercial production in second-quarter 2018. The mine is expected to produce 85,000 ounces of gold this year.
It seems that the rout in precious metals has also plagued the performance of precious metal mining companies. In this article, we’ll discuss Sibanye Gold (SBGL), Gold Fields (GFI), Yamana Gold (AUY), and Pan American Silver (PAAS), which have fallen 40.9%, 15.8%, and 10.3%, respectively. PAAS has risen 12.8% on a YTD basis.
Hedge funds increased their net positions in the SPDR Gold Shares ETF (GLD) during the first quarter. However, all isn’t so rosy for the VanEck Vectors Gold Miners ETF (GDX). During the quarter, GDX’s holdings fell 15.4% sequentially.
After reviving compared to their previous losses, the four precious metals are in negative territory again. The revival of the US dollar had a negative impact on precious metals and mining stocks during the past few weeks. The settling of the market’s unrest could have also caused a withdrawal of haven bids.
Gold ETF investors bought 173.4 tons of gold in 2017, which was 9% higher year-over-year. In 2018 year-to-date, the inflows in gold-backed ETFs have been strong. In times of increased volatility, investors are repositioning their portfolios to include more gold as a volatility hedge. Expectations of a global trade war triggered by President Trump’s import tariffs could lead investors to seek a haven in gold.

Comex gold futures have a negative weekly chart and weakness is approaching my monthly value level for May at $1,292.7.
Gold trended higher in early April due to trade tensions between the U.S. and China, prospects of airstrikes on Syria, and heightened inflation expectations following a higher than expected March Producers Price Index (PPI)1 and a 2.1% annual rise in the core Consumer Price Index2. Gold topped at $1,365 per ounce on March 11. This level has been the proverbial price ceiling for gold since 2014.
In this final part of the series, we’ll look at the correlation between gold and four mining stocks: Randgold Resources (GOLD), Yamana Gold (AUY), Coeur Mining (CDE), and Barrick Gold (ABX).
