Here is perhaps the most important chart for Goldcorp:
Goldcorp has been declining against gold since May 2006 (see chart).
Goldcorp has just released a blow-out report. It is now performing better than ever, with increased production, increased reserves, new mines opening, an increased dividend, ballooning profits, etc.
I submit that the reversal of this almost 5-year downtrend (the ratio of Goldcorp's price to the price of gold) may have started in January 2011. If this is the case, Goldcorp's upside (from a ratio low of .0293 in January 2011) could be a recapture of the .05 level - even higher.
Let's say that gold is at $2000 by the time Goldcorp retakes the .05 ratio. This would put Goldcorp's share price at $100 (from today's $46.00).
Short-term moves are hard to predict. but my intermediate target for Goldcorp is now $100.
