What are Wall Street analysts saying about Barrick Gold stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Barrick Gold stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Barrick should gain from its cost management initiatives, progress of its key projects and efforts to digitalize its mines. We are also encouraged by its debt-reduction actions. However, Barrick has underperformed the industry it belongs to over a year. The company faces headwinds from lower expected production and higher costs in 2018. This may hurt its margins in 2018. The company's falling gold reserve base is another concern. It is also exposed to a volatile gold pricing environment." (4/23/2018)
  • 2. TD Securities analysts commented, "We are maintaining our HOLD recommendation and $20.00 target price. While we believe that Barrick’s initiatives in Nevada will bear fruit, at this point we have no way to quantify the benefits. Better clarity on the company’s production profile over the medium term would enable us to become more positive on the shares. 26 26 24 24 22 22 20 20 18 18 16 16 14 14 12 12 Jun-17 Apr-17 Feb-17 Dec-16 Oct-16 Aug-16 ABX-N: Price Company Profile Barrick Gold is the world’s largest producer of gold, with 12 operating mines.
