Here we bring in 12 Gold Stocks which are highly recommended …
Agnico-Eagle Mines (AEM-T)
A Canadian based gold producer with operations in Finland and Mexico. It has moved up along with others. They have safe assets in stable countries.
The company has so many mines and projects that issues in one doesn't affect it. They execute well and are diversified. The price of gold makes profits go up. Let it ride and let people come in. He expects more institutional support going forward. (Analysts’ price target is $120.00)
Detour Gold (DGC-T)
A Canadian intermediate gold mining company with a flagship mine in Detour Lake, Ontario. They are a low cost producer, with an asset that has a big reserve.
They are in the process of being taken over by KL-T. The chart for DGC-T looks fairly bullish otherwise. He would buy it here unless you thought another buyer would come along.
Alamos Gold Inc (AGI-T)
They are a junior gold producer with cash flow that comes from a mine in Mexico. The stock will benefit form rising gold prices, and moving averages are pointing for it to rise. It may be over bought recently.
Hold and buy more. Work from a portfolio perspective and try to get an allocation of 30% in gold. Diversify your holdings with other companies in gold. Hold for a while since all these companies are pretty cheap.
Eldorado Gold (ELD-T)
A Canadian mid-cap gold miner with operations across the world. This stock runs well ahead of the group, so it may be a little overvalued. The gold cycle is picking up so it could go higher still.
Sell Telus and buy Eldorado Gold? They're totally different companies, different stories. Can't compare them. Eldorado's valuation is extended, so he'd look elsewhere. Stick with telecoms, which pay decent income and offer decent growth. People are using more bandwidth. Infrastructure and telcom stocks have been overlooked as investors have chased the tech high-flyers.
Yamana Gold Inc. (YRI-T)
A Canadian based gold producer. It does carry a lot of debt, but the stock price is improving, and it recently broke through an important resistance level.
It has been a relief overall. It is similar to Gold Bullion. He would hold off on it right now. Gold stocks have gotten ahead of the bullion.
Goldex Resources Corp. (GDX-X)
A U.S. listed gold miner stock that is a play on volatility. The stock’s seasonal strength is from the end of June to October. In a difficult market, it is a good stock to have.
It's range-trader. During flight-to-safety periods (as he expects in the next few years when market become unglued), gold will shine again with a good rally. He's added to his position. GDX is US-listed gold miners. Gold stocks vs. gold price are 35-year lows, and gold stock vs. the S&P 500 are as cheap pre-Recesssion (2005-6).…
Barrick Gold (ABX-T)
The largest gold mining company in the world, headquartered in Toronto. They are currently currying costs out of an acquisition.
If there is a huge inflationary monetary stimulus policy, then gold becomes attractive. He is wary of a repeat of what happened in 2013 to now where the gold price collapsed and dividends were cut. However, it is the most liquid company in the space and he holds it for his clients.
Kinross Gold (K-T)
A gold and silver mining company and one of the largest producers of it. It’s broken out of resistance recently, even though they have been facing some challenges from local government regulation.
Bullish on gold. This one will give you exposure to the miners. He's always looked for the best operators, like KL with its clean balance sheet. Watch the USD. If it continues to rally, you'll get a much better opportunity to buy.
Kirkland Lake Gold (KL-T)
A go-to name in this gold rally. The valuation is a little inflated but the company is in a good position, especially as interest rates decline. One of the best gold companies.
He likes it. His model price is $128 or 100% upside. The balance sheet is very small. It looks very, very good as a gold company. It has a totally different profile than most other gold companies. He would hold it here, but realize it might go down to $50. He would sell if it…
New Gold Inc. (NGD-T)
A multinational mining company active in gold, silver and copper mining. Analysts have confidence in management and doesn’t expect it to be taken over soon.
Doesn't think there will be a take-over soon. The CEO used to be the CEO of Richmond Mines. They now have an operator. On their watch list and he has confidence in management.
Premier Gold Mines (PG-T)
The company has good managers and low cost of production. They are well located in a safer part of the world as well. They also have a join venture with Barrick.
It's a sum-of-the-parts story with three moving parts. The knock on it was they always needed to finance, but they financed. He likes their assets, including a joint venture with Barrick, which is worth PG's market cap alone. Their Ontario and Mexico assets are extraneous and will likely be sold. (Analysts’ price target is $3.93)
Centerra Gold Inc (CG-T)
A Canadian company based in Toronto. It has good volume and is one of the fastest growing producers in the world. It also has a good management team.
He's leery of it. It's cheap on paper, but has ongoing political-social problems at one of their mines. Also, their BC mines have operational problems.
