Sylvania Platinum positive update. SLP

Monday, Apr 29 2019 by

· 16,256 4E PGM ounces produced in Q3;

· SDO PGM plant recoveries improved 3% to 48%;

· Gross basket price increased 15% to $1,383/ounce quarter-on-quarter;

· Net revenue increased 23% to $18.3 million;

· Group EBITDA improved 55% to $8.2 million in Q3;

· Group net profit up 33% to $5.0 million for the quarter; and

· Cash balance increased 17% from $20.2 million to $23.7 million.

The error in calculating Altman Z score (see my previous post and discussion) will impact on the Stockrank which is 94 anyway. Share Price has increased 100% since January and there is more to come. Platinum group metals prices are up and there is a nice cash buffer in the bank.

Could it be a Minervini type stock?

Certainly some positive momentum now with the price of Sylvania Platinum (LON:SLP) and also the significantly upwards revisions to the brokers target price (for what its worth) and the Platinum/ Pallidium prices

Lets hope it continues

Yes all very encouraging Nickwild (I hold). Recently, the price of palladium has fallen 14% to $1383 from $1600 in March so there's more to Sylvania Platinum (LON:SLP) than just its palladium aspect. And if the price of palladium goes up again - which seems likely as the Russians may be producing less for the next couple of years - Sylvania Platinum (LON:SLP) could well drift up past 35 towards 40. At least that's what I'm hoping.
