NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Kinross Gold (KGC) - Get Report stock is advancing 4.02% to $4.40 in late morning trading Tuesday after gold prices rebounded slightly following weeks of declines.

Gold for August delivery is up 0.08% to $1,217.70 per ounce on the COMEX this morning.

Gold prices have been pressured this month as expectations for a U.S. interest rate hike continue to rise. Higher interest rates would boost the dollar, making gold more expensive to hold abroad.

The precious metal is expected to fall 6.3% in May as the dollar reaches a two-month high, Reuters reports.

"Short-term downside risks are primarily related to a further strengthening of the U.S. dollar and a further cooling of futures market sentiment," Julius Baer analysts said in a note, Reuters added.

Toronto-based Kinross Gold is a gold mining company with assets in the U.S., Chile, Ghana and other countries.

Separately, Kinross Gold has a "hold" rating and a letter grade of C- at TheStreet Ratings because of the company's revenue growth, largely solid financial position with reasonable debt levels by most measures and solid stock price performance, which offsets weak operating cash flow.
