TheStreetRatings.com Analysis:

TheStreet Quant Ratings rates Barrick Gold as a sell. The company's weaknesses can be seen in multiple areas, such as its disappointing return on equity, weak operating cash flow and generally disappointing historical performance in the stock itself.

Highlights from the ratings report include:

  • Return on equity has greatly decreased when compared to its ROE from the same quarter one year prior. This is a signal of major weakness within the corporation. Compared to other companies in the Metals & Mining industry and the overall market, BARRICK GOLD CORP's return on equity significantly trails that of both the industry average and the S&P 500.
  • Net operating cash flow has decreased to $1,016.00 million or 39.23% when compared to the same quarter last year. Despite a decrease in cash flow of 39.23%, BARRICK GOLD CORP is in line with the industry average cash flow growth rate of -48.79%.
  • ABX has underperformed the S&P 500 Index, declining 7.62% from its price level of one year ago. The fact that the stock is now selling for less than others in its industry in relation to its current earnings is not reason enough to justify a buy rating at this time.
  • The company, on the basis of net income growth from the same quarter one year ago, has significantly underperformed when compared to that of the S&P 500 and the Metals & Mining industry. The net income increased by 6.1% when compared to the same quarter one year prior, going from -$3,013.00 million to -$2,830.00 million.
  • The revenue fell significantly faster than the industry average of 7.9%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues fell by 29.5%. The declining revenue has not hurt the company's bottom line, with increasing earnings per share.
