Newmont Corp.’s NEM stock now has a 20% upside as well as an attractive 5.4% dividend yield, according to investment bank UBS Group AG.

The Newmont Analyst: Cleve Rueckert upgraded the rating for Newmont from Neutral to Buy, while reducing the price target from $78 to $50.

The Newmont Thesis: The Denver-based company’s shares are down 33% year to date, versus a 6% decline in gold prices, Rueckert said in the upgrade note.

"Following recent management conversations, we are confident the dividend is based on a multi-year framework with visibility to falling capex in 2025," the analyst wrote. "Based on our calculations, NEM is pricing in a potential 25% dividend cut, which is too bearish in our view."

NEM Price Action: Shares of Newmont had risen by 1.78% to $42.41 at the time of publication Tuesday.
