Returns for TAHO

Tahoe Resources (TAHO) stock has lost 44.1% of its value year-to-date (or YTD) until the end of September. This trend indicates significant underperformance compared to its peers (GDXJ) (RING). 

First Majestic Silver (AG), Hecla Mining (HL), Coeur Mining (CDE), and Pan American Silver (PAAS) have returned -10.4%, -4.2%, 1.1%, and 13.1%, respectively, during the same period.

In July 2017, the Guatemalan government suspended the license of Escobal, its flagship mine, for the lack of consultation with the indigenous communities in the area. Although the government reinstated its Escobal mine license on September 10, it is not very encouraging for the investors. 

The country’s government has mandated a consultation with the Ministry of Energy and Mines (or MEM) to reinstate the license. Also, the Constitutional Court of Guatemala, its Supreme Court, denied the company’s request to order MEM to renew its export credentials for the year ahead, which more or less makes the mining license useless at the moment. 

These developments contributed to Tahoe stock’s significant woes in 2017. The company’s investors are awaiting the decision from the Constitutional Court, which is expected by the end of 2017.

Valuations

Tahoe is trading at a forward EV-to-EBITDA1 multiple of 5.5x, which is a discount of 40.0% compared to its peers. Its multiple has experienced a dramatic hit in 2017 due to the decision regarding the suspension of its flagship mine’s license. Any positive decision on the mine would be a powerful catalyst for the stock.
