Saracen Mineral Holdings Rating Review
Saracen Mineral Holdings Limited, an existing WA gold producer with regional growth opportunities, has been graded as above average quality and below average risk in a PortfolioDirect stock rating review. Reflecting the attraction these attributes have had for investors, the current market value of the company is already 8-10% higher than the PortfolioDirect assessed value of the company’s development opportunities. The PortfolioDirect analysis also points to the assessed value being near its peak levels, given the likely duration of production based on current development plans, leaving little scope for further market appreciation due to positive value momentum. Saracen is also at the top end of the PortfolioDirect relative valuation rankings (i.e. it is more expensive than average) based on the way in which the market is generally pricing the key attributes driving value in the sector. From this perspective, too, much of the future growth foreshadowed by the company has already been priced into the equity value.
