- China's moves to devalue the yuan and the potential for further devaluation have favorably shifted the risk/reward for stocks of precious metal miners, Deutsche Bank says as it upgrades Newmont Mining (NEM +6.1%) and Barrick Gold (ABX +5.2%) to Buy from Hold, citing improving balance sheets and share pullbacks the firm views as overdone compared to the move in gold prices.
- The firm notes 82% of ABX's and NEM's estimated 2016 revenues come from gold; Kinross Gold (KGC +2.8%) and Goldcorp (GG +4.9%) derive a respective 97% and 73% of their expected 2016 revenues from gold.
- Among silver miners, Deutsche Bank upgrades Pan American Silver (PAAS +6.1%) and Hecla Mining (HL +7.6%) to Buy from Hold, citing their cost exposures outside the U.S. and their respective 26% and 38% gold exposure.
