Agnico-Eagle (AEM) is best positioned among gold miners to beat Q4 earnings estimates, according to CIBC analyst Alec Kodatsky, with Kinross (KGC), New Gold (NGD) and Yamana (AUY) also in good shape. But he says Barrick Gold (ABX) has "little breathing room" for operations issues, and IAMGOLD (IAG) has "no room for error" in meeting estimates.
