Is Barrick Gold Stock A Buy, Sell, Or Hold After Recent Earnings? We Like The 4% Dividend Yield

Barrick Gold reported its Q1 earnings which beat expectations despite some mixed operating trends due to facilities maintenance and cost pressures. The company initiated a new dividend policy tied to the balance sheet net debt level with the current forward yield at 3.9%. We are bullish on Barrick Gold as a leading miner with a positive outlook on the precious metal price.

Barrick Gold: An Attractive Yield At A Reasonable Price

Barrick Gold released its Q1 results this week, reporting quarterly gold production of ~1.0 million ounces and copper production of ~101 million pounds. This represented a sharp decline in gold production from the year-ago period, partially offset by higher gold prices, higher copper sales, and higher copper prices. Meanwhile, though revenue and earnings declined year-over-year in Q1, Barrick has a much stronger H2 ahead and should see slight margin expansion despite inflationary pressures. Given Barrick's more attractive long-term outlook with improved shareholder returns and an enviable development pipeline, pullbacks toward the US$21.00 level should present buying opportunities.
