Mag Silver Production and Stock Analysis

Top Analyst Ratings for May 29th, 2024

Mag Silver Stock Analysis

Production Analysis

  1. Strong Silver Grades Driving Production: MAG Silver’s Q1/24 production results at its Juanicipio JV project in Mexico exceeded expectations, driven by higher-than-expected silver grades. Despite weaker by-product grades, particularly gold, the overall production result was robust.
  2. Revenue Impact: While the strong silver grades boosted Q1 revenue, weaker by-product grades partially offset the overall revenue impact. Approximately one-third of revenues in 2024 are modeled to come from by-products.
  3. Silver Grade Expectations: Fresnillo, the project operator, reiterated its 2024 silver grade guidance for Juanicipio. However, MAG Silver reported silver grades higher than expected in Q1/24. The analysis now forecasts silver grades to gradually decline across the year but still remain within Fresnillo’s guidance range.
  4. Consistency in Processing: Despite maintenance in March, the Juanicipio plant processed 326kt in Q1, indicating consistency in operations. Quarterly processing rates are expected to remain stable across the year, in line with MAG’s guidance.
  5. Guidance and Forecasts: MAG maintained its 2024 production guidance but adjusted its forecast based on the strong Q1 results. Gross silver production is expected to gradually decline throughout the year, with corresponding adjustments made to cash costs and all-in sustaining costs (AISC) projections.
  6. Financial Metrics and Price Assumptions: The analysis includes financial metrics such as earnings per share (EPS), price-to-earnings (P/E) ratios, EBITDA, and EV/EBITDA multiples. However, gold price assumptions were not provided with MAG’s 2024 cost guidance, prompting speculation that the assumed gold price may be below the forecasted average price.
