Currently there are nine analysts that rate Teck Resources Ltd Class B a buy, one analyst rates it a sell, and two rate it a hold.

TheStreet Ratings rates Teck Resources Ltd Class B as a buy. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its revenue growth, largely solid financial position with reasonable debt levels by most measures, attractive valuation levels, notable return on equity and expanding profit margins. We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company has had sub par growth in net income.

On the negative front, AuRico Gold ( AUQ), down 12.2%, China Gengsheng Minerals ( CHGS), down 8.2%, Thompson Creek Metals Company ( TC), down 7%, and Jaguar Mining ( JAG), down 6.5%, were all losers within the metals & mining industry with Anglogold Ashanti ( AU) being today's metals & mining industry loser.
