We are going to start the week by looking at a badly beaten-down gold stock. The fact that Omineca Mining and Metals Ltd. (OMM:TSX.V; OMMSF:OTCMKTS) is now very cheap is one big reason to buy it here, but that is not enough—we need to see evidence that Smart Money has made the same assessment and is buying the stock, and that we have as will now proceed to see.
First, we will gain an overview of the severe bear market in the stock from its 2020 peak at about CA$0.75, using a three-year chart. After the worst of this decline it looked like it was basing from last October or at least from the December low, but then fell even more in recent months due to the extreme malaise afflicting the sector but despite dropping even further we see that it is still in a zone of strong long-term support and we can also just make out heavy buying appearing in recent weeks that has driven the On-balance Volume line higher, which we will now look at in more detail on the six-month chart.
On the six-month chart, we can see that the pattern has formed in recent weeks looks like a Head-and-Shoulders bottom and the likelihood of this pattern being valid is greatly increased by the appearance of persistent heavy buying since early June that has driven the On-balance Volume line quite steeply higher.
If this interpretation is correct then we are at a great entry point here as the price has just dipped to mark out the Right Shoulder low of the suspected H&S bottom pattern. Any advance from here is likely to be greatly assisted by an improvement across the sector—with the Gold Miners Bullish Percent Index at a very depressed 10% there is plenty of room for a sector recovery to take hold.
Omineca is therefore rated an Immediate Strong Speculative Buy here.
