Gold price outlook

Year-to-date, the price of gold is up nearly 14%, closing at $1,737.95 per troy ounce on the London bullion market and $1,748.60 per troy ounce on the Comex futures market on May 19.

Thoughout March, higher than normal volatility due to the Covid-19 pandemic served as a catalyst to rising gold prices. Investors may also worry about higher inflation given massive government monetary stimulus and the printing of new currency, prompting them to purchase the precious metal as a safe haven asset. Such an environment makes gold shine brighter than bonds and other fixed-income securities.

Gold price outlook

Fears about a global economic slowdown related to the negative effects of the new coronavirus outbreak continue to push the gold price higher, breaking through $1,600, as the precious metal is considered a hedge against the risk of higher volatility and uncertainty.

The yellow metal rose 0.47% to close at $1,607.50 on the Comex gold futures market and 0.9% to $1,604.20 on the London bullion market on Wednesday. Year over year, the precious metal has gained nearly 20%.

The Canadian mid-tier miner has several catalysts to its share price

The U.S. economy keeps on expanding but not as it should, shedding some doubts on the near-term outlook for gross domestic product growth.

Last week, on Dec 13, we got some negative signs from U.S. retail sales, which is a significant indicator of the U.S. economy as consumer spending represents the largest component of the GDP.

U.S. retail sales increased by 0.2% in November of 2019, which was 20 basis points down from a 0.4% revised growth rate reported in the previous month and below expectations for a 0.5% growth rate.

Iamgold Corp. (IAG) plummeted 5.7% to $3.79 per share in after-hours trading on Wednesday after missing consensus estimates on second-quarter earnings by 2 cents. The Canadian mid-tier gold producer also missed revenue forecasts by $26.44 million.

Some tips for the next 52 weeks

The conclusion of the first part of 2019 is one week behind, so we can provide a balance sheet of the best and worst performers of the period among the most-known U.S. publicly traded gold mining stocks.

Eldorado Gold (EGO) closed the first six months of 2019 being the best performer. The Canadian mid-tier gold producer increased 101% and outperformed the VanEck Vectors Gold Miners ETF (GDX) by 82.5% over the period. The share price may have been influenced by the 5-to-1 reverse stock split that took place a few days before the end of 2018.

This gold stock is not a buy

Iamgold Corp. (IAG) plummeted 10.34% to $3.21 on Wednesday on the New York Stock Exchange after releasing production results for full-year 2018.

Even though the Canadian miner surpassed the midpoint of the production guidance of 850,000 to 900,000 ounces for the year, the output of 882,000 ounces of gold is not an improvement from the prior year.

The chart below illustrates the issue, which, together with an expected drop in the attributable production of gold for 2019, has impinged on the share price.

Production from retained activities was flat, but costs improved

AngloGold Ashanti Ltd. (AU) rose 4.61% to $10.43 on the New York Stock Exchange after releasing third-quarter production results on Monday.
