+ Watch NSU
on My Watchlist
The Company is engaged in the acquisition, exploration and development of mineral properties.
Under-explored compared to West Africa... Geologists are convinced the Precambrian rocks in Eritrea are an extension of the Arabian-Nubian shield (ANS); the birthplace of mining.
Long term outperform screen.
Nevsun has produced some excellent operational results from its gold mining activities, but this is now a play on copper as the company completes its transition at the Bisha mine in Eritrea. The latest forecast, courtesy of a June 17th press release, calls for the production of 200 million pounds of copper in 2014, implying revenues in excess of $600 million. On a recent earnings call, the CFO also stated that 2014 was expected to be a record year for cash flows. To put this in perspective, NSU generated more than $350 million in cash flow in 2011; with a current enterprise value of $300 million, the valuation looks looks extremely compelling even if we severely discount the company's forecast. There's also a yield of 4.4% after yesterday's dividend hike, which should put a floor on the stock price until copper production is fully up and running.

Too cheap to pass up, this stock will go way way way way up!
The recent drop in commodities is a temporary set back for this miner. Over sold on overall market panic.
in 2011, subject to drill results, the Company expects a second increase to Bisha’s resource and reserves by including results from the Hangingwall Copper and its infill deep drilling at Bisha Main.
Will start Mining in Q1, last 2 year technical chart is great.
With the growth of world population and dwindling fossil fuels, solar power should be the next big thing!
Expected 2010 production of a gold, copper and zinc project in Eritrea with very low expected cash costs.
Forward Cash Flow Projections based on Au price of $700.00 along with forward spot contracts placed and, from mining stand point, size and strata accessibility of Au.
Interesting Aug 5 commentary by Motley Fool's Rich Duprey, that Eritrea gov is partner in Bisha project. While Eritrea gov unsavory (Economist), hopefully over time it will reform. In the meantime it is tenacious enough to protect own interests from warlords. Although recently sold 20%, nsu is long owned by Renaissance Technologies. Bravobevo endorsement nice touch. Junior miners best way to play gold now, since majors & GLD already fully valued. Even if gold falls in the future, as juniors come of age and start producing, their value will hold, as long as production costs below market value, which seems to be the case for nsu. If gold rises, juniors will soar as they start producing. Co recently obtained financing to carry it to production in 2011.
From a valuation standpoint, Nevsun is among the top five most undervalued companies in ResourceStockGuide comparison tables based on proven and probable reserves.Check it out for yourself: http://tinyurl.com/39bg9nFair value of Nevsun’s shares is between $4.50 and $5.00.Substantial exploration potential remains at the Bisha property. The deposit remains open at depth and there are additional satellite deposits located on the territory covered by the mining license.
with rising costs of fuel, more shipping business is being push towards the rails..going long.
Gold and silver have taken a sudden drop during the past week. Many speculators are panicing and claiming that this is the end of the "commodity bubble". I don't think so. If you look at the fundamental reason behind the last 6 months rise in precious metals, you have to ask yourself....has anything changed? I don't think so. The Fed continues to pump liquidity into the market, the interest rate continues to decline, inflation continues to increase and the dollar continues to fall. That being said....if due to demand decreases oil drops sharply from here...there is a possibility that precious metals will follow. Precious metals will experience quite a bit of volatility and the gyrations may be tough to handle but I think due to the fundamentals that I mentioned above that a year from now precious metals will be much higher.
Great property, mining license, and gov't investment in Eritrea. Hammered over their mismanagement of marginal Mali mine (600/oz cost). At 1000 gold, one would think that even monkeys could turn this one around.
Now that the Chinese stock market is in tune again with New York and that it is going down, oil and gold won't be able to keep moving higher.
Very good managers and cash ok.
