BOOMTOWN POSSE' welcome to 'Kirkland Lake Gold (KL) -
following mark #2 to you -
KL my prime gold holding $100 coming - I agree my prime great
low cost high grade gold producer smile)
Kirkland Lake Gold Ltd. (NYSE: KL) New All-Time-High in Sight

ANALYSIS | Published Mar 13, 2020 17:10 (+00:00)


Kirkland Lake Gold Ltd. (NYSE: KL) is gold mining growing company
with highly productive yet low-cost mining operations in Canada and
Australia.

Last month, the company reported its revenue in Q4 2019
totaled $412 million, 47% higher than Q4 2018 and
an 8% increase from the previous quarter.

On a year-over-year basis, both higher gold sales and
an increase in gold price contributed to about half of
the $132 million increase in revenue.

The overall fundamental picture is looking healthy and if
the technical overview is alignment with this idea then
it would drive investors to buy the stock.

Since IPO, KL traded higher within an impulsive Elliott Wave
structure which reached equal legs area
$48.7 – $60.9 from September 2018 -

Up from there, it has the potential to rally higher and
break to new all time highs which would open a
bullish sequence for the stock with a minimum
target at extreme area $71 – $80 .
Consequently, traders can look for buying opportunities during
pullbacks in 3 or 7 swings as the overall picture for the stock
remain supported within a bullish trend.

In addition KL has a lot of cash on the balance sheet so that portion
of there assets (over 10% of their market cap) should have held value
in this market decline I think if the gold price rises it should
benefit KL more than ABX because of KL's greater percentage of
gold endowment.
AEM had a bad year but their 2019 earnings are only about a half of
KL's.

Is KL an undervalued bargain ?

All gold miners have taken a big shareprice drop this week much greater than gold even with fridays drop in the POG back to the US $1520 range.

In trying to make sense of the KL shareprice compared to other gold miners I looked at Barrick and Agnico Eagle.

KL showed consolidated earnings in their Feb 20 report of $2.74/share but Yahoo shows $2.65/share.
I'm not sure why. These Yahoo earnings do not include the additional
earnings that will come in from the Detour mine from 2019 so just very
roughly Detour will have mined close to 600k oz at a profit of about
$300- $400 over their costs of around $1000/oz so there should be an
addition of lets say US $350M divided by the shares now outstanding of
286 million so about $1.22/share to be added to the KL earnings for 2019 (actual shares are less than 286M now due to buybacks).
For purposes below I used the Yahoo $2.65/share plus $1.22 from
Detour to give an estimate of KL's actual earnings for 2019 of
$3.87 to compare with ABX and AEM now that the shares issued
to buy DGC are included in KL's share base.

Any input as to why this KL earnings estimate is wrong would be
appreciated.

Until we have post merger data on KL's earnings and the value put on
Detour assets and its 2019 earnings its hard to compare but using
Yahoo Finance and US dollar values below is a brief comparison:





Stock share price earnings Market Cap



ABX/GOLD 15.67 2.26 27.91 B

AEM 37.27 1.99 8.98 B

KL/DGC 23.10 3.87 6.60 B



I know the market is concerned with the life of mine at its rich
Fosterville property but this is getting ridiculous.
KL's earning per year are by far the best of these 3 in fact they are
approaching that of both ABX and AEM combined on a per share basis.
Yet it is valued at less than a quarter that of ABX only ¾ that of AEM .
AEM had a bad year but their 2019 earnings are only about a half of
KL's.

KL mines mostly gold and in safe areas vs ABX which has a lot of copper
and some in not as safe mining regions.
In addition KL has a lot of cash on the balance sheet so that portion
of there assets (over 10% of their market cap) should have held value
in this market decline I think if the gold price rises it should
benefit KL more than ABX because of KL's greater percentage of
gold endowment.
The cash provides ready funds for exploration while others need to
borrow or issue shares to afford to explore.

The only thing that would seem to be holding back KL's share price is
the perception that it has a shorter mine life which
the Detour acquisition addressed somewhat.
Any exploration success this year at either Detour Lake or at
Fosterville will likely make this stock surge ahead meanwhile
Macassa is growing and will soon have more production from
the new shaft even if Fosterville begins to decline.



Bottom line is long term an undervalued KL looks like a
far superior bet than a bloated ABX which mines copper
in dangerous jurisdictions or
AEM which is having mine problems up north.
