Stavely Minerals fell below its 20 cent April 2014 IPO price today after peaking at 70 cents in July
Stavely Minerals fell below its 20 cent April 2014 IPO price today after peaking at 70 cents in July. The process of defining a prospective copper-gold porphyry system in western Victoria was almost certainly going to take longer than the market value of the company had implied. The company is priced more realistically now but, with only $1.1 million left to spend, it will have to raise more funds (or sell stakes in its properties) to maintain the momentum of activity. As its understanding of its mineral systems is improving, the chance of eventual success has risen as its market price has declined. The opportunity to buy below the IPO price to gain a unique geographic exposure warrants consideration. Alternatively, a near term share placement may bring a still lower entry price. Or, take an average of the two.
