Analyst Considers Implications of $1,000/Oz Gold on Gold Stocks, Sees Eldorado, AuRico Thriving, Barrick, Newmont, Agnico Surviving


Barry Allan of Mackie Research issued an interesting note Monday morning which discussed the likely effects on gold-related stocks should the commodity fall to $1,000 per ounce or below.

Allan does not believe gold will fall to levels below $1,000 per ounce amid strong long-term demand moving forward.

The Mackie analyst ran stress tests on the following stocks, placing each into a "Thrives," "Survives" or "Dies" category (only US-listed stocks are seen below).


  • Eldorado Gold (NYSE: EGO)
  • AuRico Gold (NYSE: AUQ)


  • Barrick Gold (NYSE: ABX)
  • Newmont Mining (NYSE: NEM)
  • Agnico-Eagle Mines (NYSE: AEM)
