Interesting observation on gold/gold stocks by National Bank

PRECIOUS METALS: Seasonality Analysis – Seasonal Gold Rally Could Present a Golden Opportunity

Event: We take a look at the gold New Year rally driven by Chinese demand that has been a fairly consistent trend over the past five years, often leading to major price gains for the precious metal producers.

Key Takeaways: In this report we look at how Chinese demand influences gold prices heading into the Chinese New Year, which in 2019 is on February 5. The gifting of gold has long been tied to the Chinese New Year and we believe this is the primary driver behind the recent strong gold rallies in the December-January period realized since 2012. In the past several years we

have seen a bottom for the gold price in mid-December, followed by a relatively consistent short term rally into the early New Year. In our opinion, the best names to own for the potential December 2018-January 2019 gold rally are Agnico Eagle, IAMGOLD, Kirkland Lake and Yamana. In our view, the reason we believe some of the other higher NAV leveraged names may not perform as well as the four names listed above are for geopolitical reasons and/or the companies having a “show-me story” challenge that we believe are overhanging the stocks.


Editor’s Note: Agreed with the above comment! Gold and gold stocks have struggled recently due partially to tax loss selling pressures. These pressures likely will abate after mid-December when the typical period of seasonal strength from mid-December to the end of February arrives. Note that the National Bank analyst prefers Canadian producers. Recent weakness in the Canadian Dollar supports the preference. Canadian producers produce in Canadian Dollars and sell in U.S. Dollars. Owning a basket of the above stocks makes sense as their period of seasonal strength begins to show on the charts during the next couple of weeks.
