Agnico Eagle Mines Ltd (NYSE:AEM)

Agnico Eagle Mines Ltd is up and running again today after they reported their second quarter earnings report. I’ve spoken about them in the past in regards to having a position and using a technique referred to as channel trading..
Well so much for that idea now that the company has posted some good results and given some (in my opinion) great guidance. It will be some time before I’ll know what their new trading range will be. On top of all the news that AEM released, there have also been several analysts that raised the target price for Agnico Eagle.
Yesterday when I saw the price dropping I put in a limit buy order at $52 per share. Unfortunately the low of the day was $52.17. I figured that I’ll just get the shares today at even a lower price, but when I was watching Mad Money with Jim Cramer, he had the CEO of Agnico Eagle on to discuss the report. I knew at that point the shares would go up in the pre-market and continue to do so throughout the day. So I had to put in a limit buy in for 54.00 (hoping that it would be a good bid) before the market opened and was lucky that it did trigger. I think we’ll see some great thing from this company in the next few quarters and I expect to make some great gains with this stock.
Their two newest mines, Kittila and Lapa have achieved commercial production as well as their other mine Meadowbank and will be operational in the first quarter of 2010. If you haven’t jumped into Agnico Eagle Mines Ltd., do your research and maybe this can be a winner for you and your portfolio.
Second quarter 2009 highlights include:
– Record Production – record gold production of 119,053 ounces. First gold poured at Pinos Altos in July
– Good Cost Performance – LaRonde, Goldex and Lapa achieve good
minesite cost performance
– Commercial Production At Lapa And Kittila – commercial production
achieved as of May 1 at both mines
– Remaining Two New Gold Mines On Schedule – Pinos Altos and Meadowbank remain on schedule for initial production in third quarter 2009 and first quarter 2010, respectively
– Growth profile bolstered – expected after-tax internal rate of return (“IRR”) of 76% at Goldex expansion and 17% at Pinos Altos expansion at Creston Mascota
Happy trading.
