Harmony Gold Mining Co. Ltd. (HMY): Today's Featured Metals & Mining Winner

Harmony Gold Mining (HMY) pushed the Metals & Mining industry higher today making it today's featured metals & mining winner. The industry as a whole closed the day down 1.4%. By the end of trading, Harmony Gold Mining rose 10 cents (1%) to $9.86 on average volume. Throughout the day, 2.1 million shares of Harmony Gold Mining exchanged hands as compared to its average daily volume of two million shares. The stock ranged in a price between $9.71-$10 after having opened the day at $9.78 as compared to the previous trading day's close of $9.76. Other companies within the Metals & Mining industry that increased today were: General Steel Holdings (GSI), up 8.5%, China Gengsheng Minerals (CHGS), up 8.3%, China Natural Resources (CHNR), up 7.6%, and Uranerz Energy Corporation (URZ), up 7.1%.

Harmony Gold Mining Company Limited engages in the exploration, processing, and smelting of gold in South Africa and Papua New Guinea. Harmony Gold Mining has a market cap of $4.18 billion and is part of the basic materials sector. The company has a P/E ratio of 51, above the average metals & mining industry P/E ratio of 48.5 and above the S&P 500 P/E ratio of 17.7. Shares are down 16.8% year to date as of the close of trading on Wednesday. Currently there are no analysts that rate Harmony Gold Mining a buy, no analysts rate it a sell, and one rates it a hold.

TheStreet Ratings rates Harmony Gold Mining as a hold. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its robust revenue growth, largely solid financial position with reasonable debt levels by most measures and impressive record of earnings per share growth. However, as a counter to these strengths, we find that the stock has had a generally disappointing performance in the past year.

On the negative front, Great Basin Gold (GBG), down 11.3%, Arch Coal (ACI), down 8.3%, Sutor Technology Group (SUTR), down 7.6%, and Stillwater Mining Company (SWC), down 6.9%, were all losers within the metals & mining industry with Newmont Mining Corporation (NEM) being today's metals & mining industry loser.

For investors not wanting singular stock exposure, ETFs may be of interest. Investors who are bullish on the metals & mining industry could consider SPDR S&P Metals & Mining ETF (XME) while those bearish on the metals & mining industry could consider PowerShares DB Base Metals Sht ETN (BOS).
