The S&P/TSX Composite Index rose 100 points on November 8. The base metals sector rose 3.1% on the same day. Today, I want to zero in on the yellow metal and discuss whether it is a good time to buy undervalued gold stocks. Let’s jump in.

Is gold back on track in late 2021?

Last month, I’d looked at Canadian inflation, as it hit an 18-year high of 4.4% in the month of September. Historically, gold has performed well in these conditions. However, the yellow metal has failed to build momentum since sliding from an all-time high of US$2,000/ounce in the middle of 2020. Instead, digital currencies have gone on a tear and garnered significant attention as top alternative assets.

The spot price of gold was trading at US$1,825 at the time of this writing. Below are four gold stocks that look super undervalued right now. If the top precious metal can sustain this momentum, these equities will prove to be a fantastic hold.

Why this gold stock is worth your attention in early November

Torex Gold (TSX:TXG) is the first cheap gold stock I’d look to snatch up today. Its shares have dropped 29% in 2021 as of close on November 8. However, the stock is up 7.2% month over month.

The Toronto-based company operates as an intermediate gold producer in Mexico. In Q3 2021, Torex delivered revenues of $216 million — up from $205 million in the previous year. The first nine months of 2021 saw adjusted EBITDA hit $399 million compared to $247 million for the same period in 2020. Moreover, adjusted net earnings nearly doubled for the year-to-date period to $147 million, or $1.72 on a per-share basis.

Shares of this gold stock possess a price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of 4.1. That puts Torex in very attractive value territory in early November.
