Best Gold Stocks To Own For 2018

What happened

Shares of Kinross Gold Corporation (NYSE:KGC) fell 14.3% today after the company announced first-quarter 2018 results. While the company delivered top-line growth compared to the year-ago period thanks to higher sales volumes and selling prices, it didn’t trickle down to the bottom line. Instead, net income actually decreased 21% compared to the performance in the first quarter of 2017. It’s the same sticking point Wall Street had with full-year 2017 results.

Turns out, nearly all of the decrease could be explained away by a higher income tax burden. All other important financial metrics — including all-in sustaining cost (AISC) per gold equivalent ounce, operating income, and operating cash flow — improved in the year-over-year comparison.

As of 1:01 p.m. EDT, the stock had settled to a 12.1% loss.

Some analysts use the term &q;strong buy&q;&a;nbsp;to get page views or excite readers, but I consider a strong buy to mean the following:

&l;/p&g;&l;blockquote&g;&l;strong&g;&a;ldquo;Strong Buy&l;/strong&g;&a;nbsp;means that I am recommending a high-quality REIT that is trading at a wider margin of safety. Recognizing principal preservation is critical, my recommendation is telegraphing readers that the company is a blue chip on sale.&a;rdquo;&l;/blockquote&g;

In my monthly newsletter (&l;em&g;Forbes&l;/em&g; Real Estate Investor) I have labeled six REITs as strong buys and I just upgraded two others (as &l;span&g;strong buy&l;/span&g;s). As we enter 2018, most analysts have suspected that the fear of rising rates had already been priced in and nobody (including me) suspected that there would be an extreme February selloff in REIT-land.

Best Blue Chip Stocks To Watch For 2018: G&K Services, Inc.(GK)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Ben Levisohn]

    We maintain our positive view toward Cintas, particularly as G&K Services (GK) is likely to bolster Cintas’s growth potential over the next few years. However, after strong appreciation since the G&K announcement last August, we believe that much of the good news is already priced in at 25x/22x our pro-forma FY18/FY19 adjusted EPS estimates. As a result, we rate CTAS Sector Perform and await a better entry point.

Best Blue Chip Stocks To Watch For 2018: Hanesbrands Inc.(HBI)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Ben Levisohn]

    Hanesbrands (HBI) tumbled to the bottom of the S&P 500 today after missing earnings forecasts and offering disappointing guidance.

    Agence France-Presse/Getty Images

    Hanesbrandsdropped 16% to $18.98 today, while the S&P 500 rose 0.7% to 2,297.42.

    Stifel’s Jim Duffy and team explain what went wrong:

    Structural changes in US consumer and retail trends weighed on 4Q and HBI fell short in 4Q. These trends are expected to continue in FY17 and guidance was more cautious than prevailing estimates. Given the leverage and dependence on acquisitions for growth, we view visibility to underlying free cash generation key to valuation and we are discouraged by both 2016 results which were well short of plan and the outlook for FY17 operating cash flow which is a step backwards from prior FY16 guidance. With a reduction in 2017 CFO estimates from $795mn to $690mn we are lowering our 12-month target price from $26 to $23.

    Hanesbrands’ market capitalization fell to $7.2 billion today from $8.6 billion yesterday.

    Hanesbrands was just one of many retail companies that got shellacked this week. Under Armour (UAA) tumbled 29% after missing earnings forecasts and cutting its guidance, while Deckers Outdoor (DECK) plunged 21% after its earnings missed the Street consensus, and Ralph Lauren (RL) plummeted 13% after its CEO stepped down.

    If a stock falls hard, particularly one with a durable name in its industry, it could be an opportunity to pick up shares on the cheap. But sometimes, a stock trades at a discount for a very good reason, so let’s take a look at Whirlpool (NYSE:WHR), Hanesbrands (NYSE:HBI), and Vista Outdoor (NYSE:VSTO) to see if they are good values at these lower prices — or just value traps.

    Hanesbrands Inc. (NYSE: HBI) dropped about 0.6% on Thursday to post a new 52-week low of $21.41 after closing at $21.53 on Wednesday. The stock’s 52-week high is $31.36. Volume was about a third the daily average of around 6 million shares. The company had no specific news Thursday.

Best Blue Chip Stocks To Watch For 2018: Neo Lithium Corp. (NTTHF)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By SEEKINGALPHA.COM]

    ILC reminds me of Critical Elements [TSXV:CRE] (OTCQX:CRECF) having five projects (CRE has 11), and also of Galaxy Resources (ASX:GXY) (OTCPK:GALXF) by being diversified across brine and spodumene and across three continents. Also some similarity with Neo Lithium’s (OTC:NTTHF) [TSXV:NLC] early stage Argentinean brine project which I recently wrote about here. However, ILC trades at a much smaller market cap of US$8m to that of Critical Elements (US$85m) or Galaxy Resources (US$724m). This is partly due to ILC giving away significant percentages of their projects, and because they are still in the early stages of development.
