The Gold Stocks Are Still Undervalued

Commodities / Gold & Silver Stocks Jul 17, 2009 - 02:24 PM GMT

By: Jordan_Roy_Byrne

Commodities Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleEven after a massive recovery with sustained gains the gold stocks are still significantly undervalued. At the major highs of Gold $1030/oz and HUI 520, the costs to these companies were very high. Oil was high, steel was high and because of general inflation most costs were escalating. Now we have Gold 940, and HUI 350, but Oil and Steel are much lower.

Also the local price of Gold everywhere except in the US and Japan is higher than at the peak in March 2008. If you mine in Canada, you care about the price of Gold in Canadian Dollars, not the regular quoted Gold price. That is because most of your costs are in Canadian Dollars.

In a previous editorial, we have shown variations of the following charts. We show them again because they always help us in analyzing the fundamentals of gold stocks.

First we show the price of Gold against the other currencies, with a 65-day moving average, which can help us gauge an average price for a quarterly period. In every case, (including the US dollar Gold price) the moving average is at or above where it was at its peak in 2008. If you are producing Gold in Mexico (3rd from top) or Canada (2nd from top), then based on the local price, you are better off than at the peak in 2008. We should note that while Gold has rebounded in recent days, it needs to show better strength against currencies. Four of the five moving averages are trending down.

The second chart shows Gold/Gyx followed by Gold/Oil and then GDM/Gold. GDM is the broadest gold stock index. We know that Oil is a cost in mining. Gyx is the industrial metals index. We use Gyx as a proxy for the industrial costs in mining (steel, machinery, industrial equipment, etc). We can see that when Gold is outperforming Wtic (Oil) and Gyx, the gold stocks are likely to outperform Gold.


The HUI would have to rise nearly 50% to reach its all time high. Yet, today key input costs are lower and the price of Gold in most currencies is higher today than in March of last year. These positive developments bode very well for gold sector earnings over the next several quarters and for share prices of course. And if can Gold can breakout on its own without the reflation trade, then gold stocks could be looking at spectacular gains over the next twelve to eighteen months. Remember though, just because something is undervalued, doesn’t mean it will become fully valued within days or weeks.
