What are Wall Street analysts saying about Barrick Gold stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Barrick Gold stock:
  • 1. Fundamental Research analysts commented, "Fundamental Research Corp has issued a report entitled “Senior Gold Producers (NYSE: NEM/GOLD / TSX: NGT/ABX) Record Revenue in 2020; Recent Dip in Prices Offers Attractive Entry Point” and dated February 19, 2021. The full report is now at www.researchfrc.com." (2/19/2021)
  • 2. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Barrick has extensive regional presence across many of the world’s most prolific gold districts. The company is expected to gain from progress of its key growth projects that are expected to contribute to its production. Barrick’s debt-reduction actions are also expected to lower interest expenses. It also has a strong liquidity position and generates healthy cash flows. Moreover, its merger with Randgold and joint venture with Newmont provide additional upside. Higher gold prices are also likely to support margins. Concerns over the coronavirus pandemic and geopolitical tensions are supporting gold prices. Also, it has outperformed the industry over the past year. However, Barrick faces headwinds from higher expected costs. Expected fall in gold demand due to coronavirus is also a worry. Stretched valuation is another concern." (1/29/2021)
