Kinross Gold Corp. (NYSE:KGC): Current price $5.64

Zachs Equity Research on Monday reaffirmed its Neutral rating on shares of the gold miner Kinross Gold Corp., saying: “While Kinross should gain from its exploration projects, we maintain a cautious stance considering the current weak gold price and demand environment. Kinross slipped to a sizable loss in second-quarter 2013 (reported on Jul 31) on a hefty impairment charge and write-off related to the discontinuation of its Fruta del Norte project in Ecuador. Revenues fell on lower gold prices. However, both sales and adjusted earnings beat Zacks Consensus Estimates. The company saw higher gold production in the quarter.”
