  • 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 the past three months. Barrick is exposed to a volatile gold pricing environment. The company's falling gold reserve base, declining production along with the limited supply of gold as new deposits are other concerns." (7/21/2017)
  • 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.
