Below are some of the most topical Mining Stocks on the BWI Shareholder Confidence Index based on our daily chats with global investors. If you would like more detailed shareholder conviction intelligence on Global Metals & Mining companies, please contact Gordon Peck or Youssef Alshimy.


Glencore PLC
The latest transaction for Teck’s coal assets, yet to be finalized, has been received positively by mining investors. Investors in the BWI Panel say the deal will be positive for Glencore’s growth outlook, and enhance the return of capital to shareholders. Commitment to Own Glencore in 1Q 2024 was flat. The standout positive BWI Investment Quality Metrics for Glencore as rated by investors in the Panel are their Board, Short-Term Growth prospects and Momentum for the coming year. Glencore’s Transparency and Disclosure metric however scores lower than the sector and peer group averages. Investors have cited Glencore’s disclosures as opaque.


Newmont Corporation
Although Commitment to Own Newmont has increased from 4Q 2023 to 1Q 2024, the BWI Investment Quality Metrics have decreased in a few key BWI Investment Quality Metrics, some investors cited their reasons in the report below. For some investors, the current valuation is a fair reflection of the story. While others say the problems at Newmont are not going away and are why they lack confidence in the Strategy and Senior Management Team.

Ivanhoe Mines
Ivanhoe continues to showcase their ability to execute and deliver, receiving applause from investors. Mining companies have lately faced increased geopolitical risks, yet Ivanhoe has managed to operate smoothly in the DRC, according to investors. Commitment to Own Ivanhoe continued to move up as well. Certain investors who are not close to the story say they are hesitant with their geopolitical risks, which may limit the potential shareholder base for the stock.


Kinross Gold Corporation
Kinross appears to be turning a corner according to investors in the BWI Panel. Kinross stands out as a name investors have pointed out with improving Strategy, CEO, Long Term Growth prospects, Balance Sheet and Momentum over the past four quarters. Investors have become more optimistic on the Great Bear acquisition and its implications for Kinross and they credit management for doing the deal.


New companies added to the BWI Index: Filo Mining, NGEx Minerals, Aya Gold & Silver, Equinox Gold.
