B2Gold, Barrick Gold, Desert Gold: Did Warren Buffett bet on the right horse?

The price of gold has stabilized above the USD 1,900.00 per troy ounce mark in recent weeks. Against the background that the Corona Pandemic is not slowing down and that a second wave is becoming measurable in many places, the actions taken by governments and central banks are continuing cheerfully, thus ensuring further demand for the world's oldest currency. Those who want to protect their assets are probably best off buying shares in a gold company like Warren Buffett, and for those who can't decide, there is also a solution.

Gold becomes attractive for value investors

The US-investor Warren Buffett has set an example with his investment in Barrick Gold. In the past, the experienced and successful CEO of Berkshire Hathaway has always avoided gold companies, as the shares of other industries offered him ever more sensible investment opportunities in connection with their operational possibilities. However, due to the rising gold price, producers like B2Gold and Barrick Gold are making real money and can also pay dividends, a new fact that Buffett does not like to ignore.

Precious metal becomes rarer

According to its own information, Barrick Gold expects that in 2020 the highest amount of gold within one year will be brought to the market by the largest producers, at around 118 million ounces. From then on, an annual decline is to be expected. In 2029, only a quantity of about 65 million ounces of gold is expected, which corresponds to a decline of 45%. There are several reasons for this development. Firstly, the attractive areas are already in production and in addition it is becoming more and more costly to develop new areas. Regulations and restrictions often make it difficult for the industry to expand.

Takeover candidate in West Africa

Given that the reserves of the largest producers have decreased by around 34% since 2012, these mining companies must continuously look for attractive supplies. Each ounce of gold can only be mined and sold once. For this reason, the producers also like to look at attractive takeover targets in their neighbourhood. In West Africa, B2Gold and Barrick Gold each operate gold mines. Not far away, the exploration company Desert Gold Ventures is also active in the areas covering more than 400km2.

Further drill results expected

The company has reached several milestones in recent weeks. Firstly, Desert Gold has raised more than CAD 6.8 million in fresh capital from investors at a price of CAD 0.28, and in addition, management has confirmed the assumptions made in the latest drill program with regard to expected deposits and further discoveries have been announced. Final drill results from the latest program are expected to be released shortly. Work on the projects will resume in approximately six weeks. With the fresh capital, the Company is well positioned for the coming drilling season.

The profit lies in purchasing

On the stock market, however, Desert Gold's share price is in a downward spiral and has lost significant value in recent weeks due to profit-taking. Approximately six weeks ago, the shares changed hands at over CAD 0.30. Despite the successful financing round at CAD 0.28, the share price has since fallen to CAD 0.17. Volatility is a side effect on the stock market and with good timing an attractive yield can be achieved. Desert Gold's management has not only reported good drill results, but the company now has probably the highest cash position since its incorporation. Against this background, it is probably only a matter of time until the share price returns above CAD 0.30. Those who cannot decide on a particular company should diversify.

Newmont Corp, Triumph Gold, Lufthansa, TUI - Dramatic turnaround in the course!

  • Gold

Gold and silver are turning in significantly, Lufthansa and TUI have gone through with their large capital increases - what is next here? Even if the major indices experienced a strong correction in October yesterday, there was a dramatic turnaround in several respects. Volatility as a fluctuation indicator even came back so strongly in the last few days that it fell below the threshold of 20 again. This indicator shows that the need for hedging is probably dwindling, i.e. the interest of the investment community tends to be directed upwards again. But inflation can still put a spoke in the party's wheel - but that would again be a buying argument for the precious metals! We direct our view on some turnaround candidates.

Nordex, Tembo Gold, Plug Power - Great rebound potential

  • Gold

"If you don't have the shares when they fall, you don't have them when they rise", this quote comes from the stock market legend André Kostolany. The words of the old master can be applied to the current state of both the stock and precious metals markets. The renewable energy sector currently offers great comeback opportunities. The prices of most wind, hydroelectric and hydrogen stocks have lost more than half their value in recent months, and the bottoming process is underway. Which companies are coming back and continuing their upward trend?

XPeng, Central African Gold, Volkswagen - It will not work without metals

Decarbonization is the magic word when it comes to achieving the ever-tighter climate targets. The phase-out of coal and the move away from fossil fuels, oil and natural gas is a done deal. However, considerable quantities of copper, lithium, cobalt and nickel are needed to ensure the energy turnaround, whether for electromobility, solar or wind technology. A limited supply is already matching the enormous demand. A stalling of ambitious plans is already preprogrammed.
