Yamana Gold Incorporated aims to produce 2.2 million ounces of gold by 2012 and 1 million ounces by 2009. This company has a market capitalisation of 5.5 billion and has a P/E ratio 75.93.
As an intermediate gold producer Yamana has performed very well and is now approaching its all time high of $15.06 (it closed yesterday at $14.22) should it surpass its previous record then we are in uncharted waters so it go a lot higher.
Looking at the chart of Yamana we can see that it has recovered from the sell off when it traded in the $9 range however the technical indicators are still high. If gold continues to head north then the fundamentals could well over rule any technical analysis for the near term. The news flow is good in terms of production and they continue to acquire new assets.

Can Yamana push on from here? We think that it can but the challenge as always is could our hard earned cash do better elsewhere? There is a school of thought that suggests that the big profits will be made in the junior mining stocks sector and not so much with the mid sized producers, what do you think? Please send us your thoughts on which sector you see as offering the best returns and we will post them.
Yamana Gold Incorporated trades as AUY on the NYSE and as YRI in Toronto.
