Gold Producers Climbing Off 28-Year Low Versus Metal

Barrick Gold Corp. (ABX) and other bullion producers are climbing from 28-year lows relative to the metal as they tame costs, raise cash flow and beat profit estimates.
Share-valuation measures have improved since mid-year, suggesting a return of optimism regarding the sector, Kenneth Hoffman, a Bloomberg Industries analyst, said in an Oct. 29 report. Goldcorp Inc. (G) and Agnico-Eagle Mines Ltd. (AEM) rose the most in almost five months after their earnings last week beat analysts’ forecasts. Barrick, the world’s largest producer, reports results tomorrow.
“The gold shares are starting to outperform the gold price,” David Christensen, chief executive officer of ASA Ltd. a San Mateo, California-based company that manages about $550 million and invests in precious metals companies. “As the companies begin to tighten their operating constraints and generate more cash flow, we’re seeing some of that turnaround in the valuations in the industry.” : Source Bloomberg Read More >>>>
