B2Gold, Desert Gold, Osino Resources - Gold is becoming scarce

The price of a troy ounce of gold has been quoted at over USD 2,000.00 for some time now and has thus reached historic territory. Given that fears of a decline in the value of fiat money are encouraging people to flee to the world's oldest currency, this situation is expected to continue as long as central banks and politicians implement measures to mitigate the consequences of the Corona Pandemic. The measures taken in 2020 are likely to be ten times higher than the activities related to the financial crisis in 2008/09. The value driver for gold is the fact that it cannot be produced artificially and, in addition, by 2029, annual production volumes are estimated to have fallen by 45%, which could have an additional panic effect.

    Producer with an appetite for take-overs

    B2Gold is an established gold company that focuses on the production of the precious metal. The company is also active in Africa and operates mines in Namibia and West Africa. Against the background that a production peak of all gold companies is expected in 2020, the focus is likely to be increasingly on replenishment, i.e. the acquisition of exploration companies specialising in the discovery of new deposits. Typically, companies such as B2Gold take-over the successful explorers as soon as they have reached a critical quantity of gold. It can also be an advantage if the new discoveries are already in the vicinity of the company's own mines.

    Focused on West Africa

    Desert Gold Ventures is an exploration company with properties in West Africa. The company's properties cover more than 400 km2 and are located in the vicinity of well-known mining companies such as B2Gold, Barrick Gold and Iamgold. The management has been able to prove gold at various locations in the past. Further drilling programs are planned to collect more data on the properties to bring the gold reserves to the targeted level of up to six million ounces. After the market closed yesterday, the company announced a CAD 6.5 million capital increase to be financially prepared for the next drilling season in the fourth quarter. The company has already announced that the results of the latest drilling program will be released in a timely manner.

    Successful in Namibia

    Osino Resources is also an exploration company and focuses on the development of its own projects in Namibia. The company is led by CEO Heye Daun, who has already built up an explorer until 2012 and sold it to B2Gold. Daun knows what is important and will try to build on the historic success with Osino. In 2020 the company has already received more than CAD 30 million from investors for the exploration of the areas. According to the latest news from Osino, recent drilling has been very successful and the money is being invested in the exploration of new drill targets. The company is focused on releasing a substantial resource estimate as soon as possible.

    BioNTech, BYD and Desert Gold: Shares for the rebound

    • Gold
    • Electromobility
    • Biotechnology

    Is the rebound coming? After the heavy price losses of recent days and weeks, the market seems ripe for a countermovement. However, this would require a little more volume in the market. But then, especially companies that have not disappointed operationally should profit. BioNTech, for example, belongs to this group. The Company has published convincing figures, and analysts see up to 50% price potential. BYD's share price should also pick up speed again. Finally, the rapid shift to electric pureplay seems to be succeeding and HSBC has raised the price target. Gold was not a safe haven in the current correction. But it is worth looking at bombed-out stocks here as well. Desert Gold Ventures is one of them. The explorer has started a new drill program and secured financing.

    Barrick Gold, Edgemont Gold, Rio Tinto - Are gold stocks taking off again?

    • Gold

    With the start of the Ukraine crisis, the gold price skyrocketed, but since March 8, we find ourselves in a consolidation. The 200-day line is currently holding, and it could go up again from here. But let's look at the reasons for the weakness in the gold price. On the one hand, there is the strong dollar, which naturally puts pressure on the gold price, and on the other hand, bond yields in the US are climbing again. After the FED announced on May 4 that it would not raise interest rates by more than 0.5 percentage points, which was originally feared, the gold price jumped again. Demand for physical gold remains high. We look at three companies in the gold sector.

    Rheinmetall, Triumph Gold, K+S - Hype or sustainable?

    • Gold
    • fertilizer
    • Defense

    Already during the Corona pandemic, clear winners and losers could be identified. Vaccine manufacturers multiplied, and companies related to online trading also performed better than the market. In the current Ukraine crisis, however, the signs are changing. Suddenly, defense stocks, which were frowned upon a short time ago, are all the rage. Fertilizer companies, benefiting from the sanctions and the resulting supply shortages, are also gaining favor with investors. But how sustainable are the current increases? Gold mining stocks are also doing very well, but in contrast to Rheinmetall, Hensoldt & Co., they are performing much weaker.
