Gold stocks have highest cash flow ever, so why are prices down? Michael Gentile

Kitco News

(Kitco News) - The gold mining sector is demonstrating excellent fundamentals, representing a complete disconnect between intrinsic value and market value, said Michael Gentile, strategic investor.

"The industry has never been better fundamentally at a time when the least amount of investors ever have interest in the sector," Gentile told David Lin, anchor for Kitco News.

Gentile cited the highest free cash flow the sector has seen in forty years, as well as the highest inflation-adjusted cash flow yield of any equity sector right now as being reasons for the gold stocks' undervaluation.

"The free cash flow yield of the gold sector, if you look at a 40-year chart from the 1970s to today, there's never been a time when the free cash flow yield of the gold sector has been higher," he said.
