BMO Capital Markets recommends royalty and streaming companies as a way for investors to get into precious and base metals without the risk of 2022 capital and operating cost inflation that comes with metals mining companies, reported analyst Jackie Przybylowski.
"We expect that these [royalty and streaming] companies will benefit relative to other miners that will likely report higher effects of cost inflation," wrote Przybylowski.
As for the miners, BMO expects them to "build inflation expectations into capex and opex guidance for the next one to three years to add some conservatism or cushion into targets," the analyst relayed. Because operators Newmont and Barrick already have accounted for inflated costs in 2022, BMO rates them Outperform and recommends them now, too.
Regarding the current trend of rising investor interest in streaming and royalty companies, BMO expects it will continue as long as periods of inflation and volatility do, Przybylowski noted.
