Yamana Gold Inc (AUY): Today's Featured Metals & Mining Winner

Editor's Note: Any reference to TheStreet Ratings and its underlying recommendation does not reflect the opinion of TheStreet, Inc. or any of its contributors including Jim Cramer or Stephanie Link.

Yamana Gold ( AUY) pushed the Metals & Mining industry higher today making it today's featured metals & mining winner. The industry as a whole closed the day up 1.0%. By the end of trading, Yamana Gold rose $0.39 (4.6%) to $8.80 on average volume. Throughout the day, 9,158,442 shares of Yamana Gold exchanged hands as compared to its average daily volume of 7,064,800 shares. The stock ranged in a price between $8.44-$8.83 after having opened the day at $8.51 as compared to the previous trading day's close of $8.41. Other companies within the Metals & Mining industry that increased today were: Tonix Pharmaceuticals ( TNXP), up 30.1%, Oxford Resource Partners ( OXF), up 11.5%, Prospect Global Resources ( PGRX), up 9.3% and Seabridge Gold ( SA), up 9.2%.

Yamana Gold Inc. engages in the exploration, development, and production of mineral properties, primarily gold. It also explores for copper, molybdenum, zinc, and silver metals. Yamana Gold has a market cap of $6.5 billion and is part of the basic materials sector. The company has a P/E ratio of 20.9, above the S&P 500 P/E ratio of 17.7. Shares are down 50.2% year to date as of the close of trading on Tuesday. Currently there are 11 analysts that rate Yamana Gold a buy, 1 analyst rates it a sell, and 1 rates it a hold.

TheStreet Ratings rates Yamana Gold as a hold. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its largely solid financial position with reasonable debt levels by most measures and expanding profit margins. However, as a counter to these strengths, we also find weaknesses including a generally disappointing performance in the stock itself, feeble growth in the company's earnings per share and deteriorating net income.

On the negative front, Minco Gold Corporation ( MGH), down 15.2%, Thompson Creek Metals Company ( TC), down 9.7%, China Gengsheng Minerals ( CHGS), down 7.6% and Universal Stainless & Alloy Products ( USAP), down 6.2% , were all laggards within the metals & mining industry with Tenaris ( TS) being today's metals & mining industry laggard.

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).
