Recent times have been difficult on gold. Economists think that gold would be experiencing its own bull market right now, given that inflation is high, but that hasn’t been evident. It is difficult to invest in tangible gold, especially if you have a quantity that requires storage in a secure location.
Well, bullion isn’t what’s on my mind. I’ll focus on individual gold stocks on the NYSE. Gold stocks are considered by many to be an essential part of an investor’s asset allocation, especially during periods of high inflation. With a decline in the value of the U.S. dollar and a rise in the likelihood of a recession, several mining equities have recently risen as the market’s vital signs seem to be bouncing back.
One more thing to consider: FTX, a digital coin once worth over $30 billion, is now billions in debt—and this happened in very little time. This subsequently did damage to other players in the digital coin market. After seeing the extreme volatility and risk, former digital coin bulls are now bears, while investors are questioning if it holds actual value as a long-term asset (like gold). Ironically, there isn’t a clear answer because digital currencies have been around for only ten years or so—gold, however? Thousands.
That said, join me while I discuss three of my favorite gold stocks. They come with bargain pricing, pay dividends, and aren’t going anywhere. The experts agree that these buy-rated gold tickers will brighten up our portfolios:
Kinross Gold Corp (KGC)
Kinross Gold Corporation (KGC) and its subsidiaries acquire, explore, and develop gold assets primarily in the United States, Brazil, Chile, Mauritania, and Ghana. KGC also extracts and processes gold-containing ores, reclaims gold mining assets, and produces and sells silver. KGC was established in 1993 and is based in Toronto, Canada.
KGC had an excellent third quarter this year and isn’t slowing down. KGC’s Q3 results missed some expectations yet improved their performance: Revenue landed at $856.5 million (+47.06%), net income at $64.9 million (+244.54%), EPS at 5 cents per share (+225%), with a profit margin of 7.58% (+198.31%) and operating income of $104.2 million (+460.22%). Until reporting again, KGC’s current quarter shows estimated sales of $1 billion and an improved EPS of 8 cents. KGC’s dividend yield is 2.74%, with an annual payout of 12 cents per share (3 quarterly). With KGC’s stock down 24.27% YTD, this has upside potential. Analysts who provide 12-month price projections have given KGC a consensus median price target of 5.48, with a high of 7.47 and a low of 3.75. This is a 24.58% increase over KGC’s current price, and analysts are consistent with its buy rating.
Gold is SOARING – here’s what you need to do
Everything is lining up perfectly for a historic gold bull run. One gold expert says he’s found the best way to get in, for less than $10.
Alamos Gold Inc (AGI)
Alamos Gold (AGI) is a Canadian multinational gold company with three mines in North America and six more under construction. AGI owns and manages three mines: the Island Gold Mine in British Columbia, the Young-Davidson Mine in Ontario, Canada, and the Mulatos Mine in Sonora, Mexico. Hundreds of thousands of ounces of gold are successfully extracted and produced by AGI each year among the three mines. AGI has received best-in-class environmental, social, and corporate governance ratings. AGI was established on February 21st, 2003, and is based in Toronto, Canada.
AGI, although being the smallest operation of its peers, has already shown growth, and more is on the way. Year-to-date, AGI’s stock is up by 29.26%. For Q3 2022, AGI met analysts’ projections on EPS and beat revenue by 1.5%, reporting $213.6 million vs. the $209 million expected. The sales number also represents 7.88% year-over-year growth. With a market cap of nearly $4 billion and an average volume of 3,771,682, AGI appears to be proliferating. In recent news, it announced a quarterly dividend: AGI has a yield of 1.04%, with an annual payout of 10 cents per share. Keep in mind, that’s for now, and it could certainly increase. Analysts who offer 12-month pricing estimates have marked AGI with a consensus median price target of 10.00, with a high of 11.96 and a low of 8.84. AGI is performing well to end the fiscal year, and 2023 should give its buy rating some time to shine.
Barrick Gold Corp (GOLD)
Barrick Gold Corporation (GOLD) is a gold and copper property exploration, production, and mine development company. GOLD holds stakes in gold mines in Argentina, Côte d’Ivoire, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, the Dominican Republic, Mali, Tanzania, and the U.S. GOLD also has ownership stakes in copper mines in Chile, Saudi Arabia, Zambia, and many other projects in the Americas and Africa. GOLD was established in 1983 and is based in Toronto, Canada.
GOLD is down by 9.95% for the year and is considered undervalued, even with its low price. GOLD is regarded as a top-shelf gold equity, as it comes with a $38 billion market cap and one of the industry’s best management teams. In four consecutive earnings reports, GOLD has crushed analysts’ EPS and revenue projections. The current quarter for GOLD shows estimated sales of $2.8 billion, with an EPS of 18 cents per share. GOLD has a dividend yield of 3.47%, with an annual payout of 55 cents per share. The analysts that offer yearly price forecasts have given GOLD a consensus median price target of 20.20, with a high of 25.00 and a low of 15.00. This estimate shows an 18.04% increase over its last price, and all that comes to mind is “bargain!” after seeing GOLD’s uncontested buy rating.
Read Next – Secret NASA project will destroy Elon Musk
Between 1956 and 1958, NASA and the United States Air Force conducted a series of covert tests in an isolated compound in rural Virginia.
Access to this special program was classified higher than “Top Secret”…
And only 25 people knew of the project’s existence.
Its codename was Project Suntan.
To develop an entirely new type of fuel that would allow the U.S. to achieve total energy dominance over the Soviet Union.
The elite team of physicists and engineers were given a blank check by the government and told to do “whatever it takes.”
After two years and $2 billion…
The members of Project Suntan stumbled on a MASSIVE discovery.
A way to convert one of the Earth’s most abundant resources into cheap, powerful, virtually endless energy.
Following their discovery, the team was quietly disbanded.
And this new fuel was kept secret by the highest levels of U.S. intelligence.
But all that is changing as we speak.
Finally, after more than 60 years in secrecy, this fuel is slowly being rolled out to the public.
And one tiny company has obtained the patents on this world-changing “Future Fuel.”
Forget Tesla, or any of the other “alternative energy” companies out there.
Once this “Future Fuel” hits mainstream, it will make electric power obsolete.
It will make wind and solar obsolete.
It will even make oil obsolete.
And it will hand investors a once-in-a-lifetime chance to get rich.
Imagine if you had been able to invest in the birth of the oil economy.
You would have had more wealth than you could ever imagine.
Well, you have a rare second chance.
Because as “Future Fuel” replaces oil, wind, solar, and electric…
Investors could turn every $500 into $234,000 or more.
The future is here.
