Bellevue Gold shares (ASX:BGL) have taken holders on a upward curve over the past 12 months, adding 60.32% during a period where demand for gold, and the price of the commodity itself has gone on to reach record highs. With such an ascent for the metal, it is no surprise to see those involved in the space doing well, but is Bellevue shining in its own right, or is it merely a case of ‘rising tides floats all boats’?

The Australian gold exploration and evaluation company, is nearing what could be a pivotal moment in its corporate history with the share price taking out highs that have not been seen since back in 2011 so we want to take a closer look at some of the fundamentals. With a focus on its properties in Australia, Bellevue has been navigating through a phase characterised by significant losses, as evidenced by an AU$25m loss recorded in the last financial year. Despite this, there is an expectation of a positive turnaround on the horizon with analysts optimistic about the company’s potential to reach profitability through 2024 to the tune of AU$78m.


The path to profitability is not without its challenges for Bellevue Gold. The company’s high debt level presents a considerable risk for investors, and the number of shares in the firm have continued to increase year on year. There is an expectation from markets that Bellevue Gold will achieve an average annual growth rate of 34% and put the company, with a considerable market cap of $2.38bn on solid ground. Achieving this will be no mean feat operationally. This would indicate that Bellevue Gold’s strategic initiatives and operational advancements are set to bear fruit, with earlier investment moving in to the payoff phase, and the current price of gold aiding underlying asset values.

What the future holds for the stock is not as simple as some may want, with plenty of questions still to answered in future data. The latest figures released by the firm indicate a confidence, but share prices up at a historically lofty level, and near a resistance level from April may cause markets to pause for thought. With the next earnings almost 4 months away on 17th September, there will be plenty more data to look at that may give a greater indication of future direction. Current price targets from analysts also pin the consensus at $2.10 pretty close to the last close ($2.02).

The rapid ascent for BGL over the last 12 months has given shareholders plenty to smile about, considerably outperforming the sector and the index, but whether this represents an entry point is a question that needs very careful consideration. Whilst the company may be on the cusp of a rebound, predictions of a breakeven point and subsequent profitability provide a hopeful outlook for the company rather than one that is set firm. While the high debt-to-equity ratio remains a concern, the projected growth rate and the potential for a more promising future that may lie ahead for Bellevue Gold. With a strategic approach and continued focus on growth, Bellevue Gold could be poised to transform its financial narrative from red to black.
