Oreninc Index Falls to Two-Week Low

The Oreninc Index fell for the week ending June 11, 2015. Total dollars announced dropped to $25.6m, a two-week low. Seven brokered deals were announced for $25.6m, a three-week high; no bought deals were announced for the second time in three weeks.

Deal making was heavier, with the biggest news coming from Newmont Mining Corp (NYSE:NME) and their purchase of the Cripple Creek & Victor Gold Mine from AngloGold Ashanti Ltd. (NYSE:AU) for US$820m cash, in addition to a cut of future returns from the mine’s underground operations. Iron ore had another fantastic week, almost reaching a five-month high, while gold had another hard week, hitting a 12-week low.

The weak financing market should not come as a surprise now that summer has arrived.
