In a short period of time readers and I have been pleasantly surprised by the outperformance of this model portfolio.

While the fund takes a “go anywhere” approach, lately the opportunities we’ve been seeing are in biotech companies that are undervalued relative to their future prospects, with catalysts on the way that could result in near to medium term share price appreciation.
In hindsight, it wasn’t great timing when I started the fund near the beginning of correction in biotech. However, when it comes to the markets in general I don’t try to predict future movement- instead I look for price action, money flow, and the fundamental story on individual stocks I take positions in.

Kinross Gold Corp. (NYSE: KGC) may be the stock that give investors the most amount of leverage on a gold rebound. Management reduced the company’s annual capital expenditures forecast to $1.45 billion from $1.6 billion, saving $180 million from its cost restructuring initiatives. Cancellation of its upcoming semiannual dividend payment to its shareholders will save $182 million per year. Kinross expects to produce gold at a cost of $1,000 to $1,200 an ounce this year. The Merrill Lynch target is $7.00, and the consensus target is $6.55. The dividend, which soon will be cancelled, has a yield of 2.9%.

Given revised commodity deck forecasts (particularly for Steel and Gold) and improved Balance Sheet health (Steels, Precious and Industrials Metals) we are upgrading our ratings on several stocks in our coverage. We generally favor companies that have already initiated specific self-help, have low-cost assets and are less exposed to China supply and demand dynamics. In Steels, we have increased our rating from Hold to Buy on Nucor (NUE) and from Sell to Hold on US Steel. We have also upgraded Kinross Gold (KGC) to a Hold on valuation…On higher-than-peer valuations, we reiterate Sell-rated Coeur Mining (CDE), Franco-Nevada (FNV), Goldcorp (GG), Teck Resources (TCK) and highly leveraged AK Steel given preference to issue further equity if possible.

Instead of the P/E, therefore, we’ll consider the companies on the basis of price-to-cash from operations on a trailing-12-month (TTM) basis. Cash flow, after all, is one thing management can’t be massaged.
