International Growth Play #2: Franco Nevada (FNV)

International growth plays come in all shapes and sizes, but most resource companies are headquartered in Canada. With a strong rule of law favorable to mining operations, it’s a good place for investors to get started in diversifying away from the dollar.

We’re no stranger to the company, as it’s a great resource play. The best part about it is the business model, which relies on royalties. Thanks to this structure, it’s difficult for the company to lose money, and it can be a multi-billion-dollar player in the space with a mere 34 employees.

But gold has a lot going for it right now. For the past four years, the metal’s price has been in an uptrend, which automatically increases the profits going to Franco Nevada from its royalty deals. Add in the periodic market scare like the coronavirus outbreak, and it’s easy to see why shares are likely to continue heading higher.

That’s seen easily in the company’s financials. Revenue is up 39 percent in the past year. Earnings are up a whopping 95 percent. And the company has a 28 percent profit margin, more in line with a technology play than a commodity one.

Shares are up more than 50 percent in the past year, but are likely to continue heading higher. That bodes well for investors. Looking at the overall market valuation, this stands out as a potential growth play with a solid international bent to it as well.

We like shares up to $114 based on these factors. The company pays a 0.9 percent dividend.

Franco-Nevada Delivers Record Q4 and Annual Results

Growing free cash flow and strong outlook

TORONTO, March 9, 2020 /CNW/ - "I am pleased that Franco-Nevada (FNV) is reporting its best results ever," stated David Harquail, CEO.

"Record quarterly and annual results were achieved across all our important sales and financial metrics.

Results benefited from the start of precious metals deliveries from Cobre Panama, strong production at other key assets and higher precious metals prices.

Thanks to our diversified portfolio, we expect good overall growth in 2020 mostly driven by the continued Cobre Panama ramp-up despite a more conservative outlook for our energy assets.

Franco-Nevada is generating substantial free cash flow and, post year-end, is now debt free. Franco-Nevada continues to be the gold investment that works."

Franco-Nevada will not need more funding despite suspensions, analyst says

Franco-Nevada (FNV -2.9%) falls as much as 6.5% after the company withdrew its gold and energy sales guidance for 2020 on Covid-19 uncertainties, but analysts at National Bank Financial think the company likely will not need additional funds for current financing commitments.

Franco-Nevada had $205M in cash and cash equivalents as well as undrawn credit facilities of $1.1B as of March 31.

National Bank maintains its Sector Perform rating, as the company's growth and financial strength is offset by higher valuation and oil exposure.

Scotiabank, which also rates the stock at Sector Perform, says the impact of the curtailments for will be essentially limited to a deferral of revenue.

Franco-Nevada also is not directly exposed to any potentially increased costs at the vast majority of its assets, Scotiabank says.

Franco-Nevada slides as Cobre Panama mine suspends ops

In a corporate update, Franco-Nevada (FNV -4.9%) notes operations have been temporarily suspended at First Quantum's Cobre Panama copper complex.

Franco-Nevada's streaming agreement with Cobre Panama makes it highly exposed to the production from the mine.

The company says the Antamina, Antapaccay and Candelaria assets continue to perform close to expectations based on recent information provided by the operators.

Of the 52 smaller cash-flowing assets in Franco-Nevada's portfolio, 11 have announced temporarily reduced or curtailed production.

Franco-Nevada says it is withdrawing previous 2020 sales guidance for gold equiv. oz., citing higher uncertainty going forward.

The company says it had cash holdings of $205M and undrawn credit facilities of $1.1B as of March 31.
