AngloGold Ashanti, Newmont, Velocity Minerals: Where does price potential slumber?

While the German government is thinking about softening the insolvency law even longer than expected and thus keeping many ailing companies alive, central banks make no secret of continuing the path of cheap money they embarked on immediately after the outbreak of the Corona pandemic. As a first reaction, the prices of gold and companies related to the mining of gold climbed significantly. Currently the prices have come back somewhat. Since the basic fundamental situation around the precious metal is still intact, the current phase should be seen in retrospect as a pause for breath. Reason enough to take a closer look at three companies from the gold sector.

"[...] We quickly learned that the tailings are high-grade, often as high as 20 grams of gold per tonne; because they are produced by artisanal miners, local miners who use outdated technology for gold production. [...]" Ryan Jackson, CEO, Newlox Gold Ventures Corp.

AngloGold Ashanti does not yet convince the market

AngloGold Ashanti's stock generated a return of 26.6% on a one-year horizon. **The company decided to implement a comprehensive restructuring program even before the outbreak of the pandemic, and although this had a negative impact on the quarterly figures, analysts are convinced that the measures will pay off in the long term. Also in view of the increased gold price, the planned sales of projects should proceed slightly and also have a positive effect on AngloGold Ashanti's cash position.

It is also a fortunate coincidence that the company will be able to expand production in 2020, which should allow the company to benefit directly from rising prices. However, the stock is not really getting off the ground on the stock markets. Investors are worried that AngloGold Ashanti may no longer have a broad enough base following the sale of further projects.

Newmont: Vision through exploration

The mood among investors in Newmont is more optimistic. Higher gold prices have had a direct impact on margins and have brought the company high profits. The company that emerged from the merger of Newmont Mining and Goldcorp has accumulated a number of promising projects over the past few years and is therefore considered to be well positioned for the gold boom. The stock market agrees: Shares of Newmont Goldcorp increased on view of one year by nearly 60%. The announcement of a USD 1 billion share buyback program may also have contributed to creating greater imagination.

When it comes to vision, Velocity Minerals' shareholders have a clear picture in mind: ideally, the company will bring its gold projects in Bulgaria gradually into production. But the reality is different: Although the company recently released a Preliminary Feasibility Study for its flagship Rozino project, in which the company has a 70% interest, the other projects are still in the exploration stage. For the three satellite projects, Velocity Minerals has options to increase stakes in the event of positive exploration results. **All projects are within truck range of an existing processing plant with a potential of 200,000 ounces of gold annually.

Velocity Minerals: Production planned for end of 2022

Although at first glance Velocity Minerals may not appear to have much in common with the likes of Newmont or AngloGold Ashanti - after all, their market capitalization is only around EUR 45 million - at second glance, parallels are apparent. Like Newmont, Velocity has further exploration potential and plans to increase it over the coming months and years. The flagship Rozino project is already further along the road, with Velocity's goal of producing gold by the end of 2022. This clearly communicated company perspective has not yet made the rounds on the stock exchange - the share price is now trading at more or less the same level as a year ago.

Osino Resources, Barrick Gold, Newmont: So are the doublers in Africa?

  • Gold

When it comes to growth, professional investors look to Africa as well as Asia. In 2018 Rwanda and Guinea were the world's fastest-growing economies: the economies of both countries grew by 8.6%. Even countries like Benin, Ethiopia, Gambia or Burkina Faso are still among the top 20 in the world. But what is the reason for high growth in Africa anyway? In addition to a young and rapidly growing population, which drives the domestic market, education from a level of training is also an essential factor. Only in this way can emerging economies also participate in more complex value creation. Legal security and stability are also important factors when foreign investors look to Africa. One country that is considered highly developed and legally secure within Africa is Namibia.

AngloGold Ashanti, Blackrock Gold, Newmont: Investing in gold - but how?

  • Gold

Gold investors are in a comfortable situation: The precious metal has lost a little from its highs, but still shows excellent relative strength at the USD 1,900 an ounce mark. Although news of vaccines has taken some pressure off the markets in the short term, the big picture for gold investors remains intact. The crisis of the century requires trillion-dollar measures. This flood of money, in turn, increases the risk of further problems and could drive inflation. Contrary to the opinion of many investors, it is not inflation that drives the gold price, but their expectations. Given the measures already taken and those still in the pipeline by governments and central banks, there is every reason for increased inflationary expectations. But how does an investment in the expected gold boom succeed?

While grandmother still hid bars and coins under the bed, today's investors can resort to gold ETCs. These usually securitize physical gold and can also be held in custody at attractive fees and actively traded. Yield hunters nevertheless prefer to use gold shares. The reason: stocks such as AngloGold Ashanti, Blackrock Gold or Newmont usually offer leverage on the gold price. Depending on how a Company develops, the gold reserves in the ground are also valued.

Velocity Minerals, B2Gold, Delivery Hero: We take up the fight!

  • Gold

The news of a vaccine against Corona with a success rate of 90% caused markets to skyrocket since last Monday. While the Dow Jones and the S&P set 500 new records, gold plummeted by as much as USD 118 in one day. Gold's most significant daily drop in more than seven years also wiped out its breakout from a 3-month downward wedge last Friday.

As gold futures closed below USD 1,890 this week on the Comex, the strong sell-off below this support brings with it the possibility that the zone between USD 1,750 and USD 1,800 will be tested again before the correction of the safe-haven metal's large gains finds a significant bottom. The gold futures base of USD 1,800 has technically become a critical support level, an area that dates back to the bull market of 2008.
