This past summer, sid1138 touched on macro trends working in Newmont's favor:
Governments around the world are screwing up BIGTIME. This means more and more people around the world will want gold. ... What happens when demand grows dramatically? Prices increase. What happens when a company has a product where demand increases? Profits increase. Enough said.
Newmont, in particular, sports a cheapish P/E of 15.3. That represents a clear discount to other gold plays like Goldcorp
CAPS member americanbuffalo expands on the outperform argument:
Like many of the miners Newmont was lagging the long term bull market in gold but recently this has changed. Back in April the company linked its dividend directly to the price of gold and since then [Newmont] has had a very close correlation to the price of gold. Gold will continue to rise due to expanding government debt and out of control fiat money creation and Newmont will rise with it.
