Silver Miners’ Q3’18 Fundamentals

By Adam Hamilton – Re-Blogged From Silver Phoenix

The major silver miners’ stocks have been largely abandoned this year, spiraling to brutal multi-year lows. Such miserable technicals have exacerbated the extreme bearishness plaguing this tiny contrarian sector. While profitable silver mining is challenging at today’s exceedingly-low silver prices, these miners are chugging along. Their recently-reported Q3’18 results show their earnings are ready to soar as silver recovers.

By Adam Hamilton – Re-Blogged From http://www.Silver-Phoenix500.com

The silver miners’ stocks have really languished this year, grinding sideways to lower for months on end. This vexing consolidation has fueled near-universal bearishness, leaving silver stocks deeply out of favor. But once a quarter when earnings season arrives, hard fundamentals pierce the obscuring veil of popular sentiment. The silver miners’ recently-reported Q3’17 results reveal today’s silver prices remain profitable.

By Adam Hamilton – Re-Blogged From http://www.Gold-Eagle.com

With the third quarter’s earnings season now underway, the gold miners will soon join in and report their latest results. No data is more highly anticipated by investors, for good reason. Quarterly reports dispel the dense fogs of herd sentiment that usually obscure gold stocks, revealing their operations’ underlying fundamental realities. Q3’17’s upcoming results are likely to prove quite bullish for this neglected sector.

Gold Juniors’ Q2’17 Fundamentals

By Adam Hamilton – Re-Blogged From http://www.Gold-Eagle.com

The junior gold miners’ stocks have spent months grinding sideways near lows, sapping confidence and breeding widespread bearishness.  The entire precious-metals sector has been left for dead, eclipsed by the dazzling Trumphoria stock-market rally.  But traders need to keep their eyes on the fundamental ball so herd sentiment doesn’t mislead them.  The juniors recently reported Q2 earnings, and enjoyed strong results.

Gold Juniors’ Q1’17 Fundamentals

By Adam Hamilton – Re-Blogged From http://www.Gold-Eagle.com

The junior gold miners’ stocks suffered a serious thrashing between mid-April and early May.  Relentless heavy selling blasted many back down near deep mid-December lows, leaving sentiment in tatters.  But traders distracted by weak technicals need to keep their eyes on the fundamental ball.  The gold juniors just finished their Q1 earnings season, which was solid.  Their low stock prices are disconnected from reality.

Gold Juniors’ Q1’16 Fundamentals

By Adam Hamilton – Re-Blogged From http://www.Gold-Eagle.com

The smaller gold-mining and exploration stocks have enjoyed an amazing year, soaring with gold’s new bull market.  Many have more than doubled since mid-January, and some have more than tripled at best in that short span.  Are such spectacular gains fundamentally-justified, or merely the result of ephemeral sentiment that could vanish anytime?  The gold juniors’ recently-reported Q1’16 results offer great insights.

The junior gold miners and explorers play a critical role in the world gold market.  They bear the major costs and risks associated with discovering and sometimes developing new economically-viable gold deposits.  They painstakingly find the new gold reserves to offset the constant depletion of the world’s existing gold mines, acting as the headwaters feeding the global mined-gold-supply pipeline vital to this industry.

The larger gold miners rely extensively on the juniors’ crucial exploration and early-development work to maintain and replenish their own operations.  While the majors certainly do their own exploration, it is far from sufficient to offset existing gold mines exhausting.  So gold juniors are constantly targeted by the larger miners, which acquire these companies outright, buy their projects, or partner with them for development.
