  • Gold

In uncertain times, cautious investors seek a safe haven for their money. In addition to real estate, gold in particular is a popular currency for people who have the need to be able to move their assets. But it does not have to be bars and coins. As an alternative to physical gold, shares of companies in the gold industry can offer an interesting investment opportunity. However, there are some important rules to follow in the commodities industry.

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often as high as 20 grams of gold per tonne; because they are produced by artisanal miners, local miners who use outdated technology for gold production.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

Exploration and production

The creation of value in the gold industry begins with exploration, which means the exploration of the land. Companies like Osino Resources explore for reserves in their areas and, if successful, then follow a recognizable trend to discover as much mineable gold as possible. Typically, successful explorers seek a takeover by a producer.

Companies that are focused on mining and selling can logically only sell their commodities once, and thus their reserves normally decrease as well. The large mining companies thus benefit in return from a takeover of an area or an entire explorer, because this way the reserves are replenished. So, explorers and producers work hand in hand.

Experiences create security

The CEO of Osino Resources is Heye Daun, an experienced company director who has made a company capable of being taken over in the past. As part of a transaction, B2Gold has paid around USD 180 million for a 1.9 million ounce gold resource. This transaction took place in 2012, when the gold market was already in a downturn. Heye Daun makes no secret that Osino Resources is also seeking an exit for investors through a sale. As a rule of thumb, selling prices of USD 100 million per million ounces of gold in the ground are expected.

Sufficiently financed

Osino Resources has already made discoveries in Namibia that have attracted the interest of investors. With a successful financing round in January 2020, the company has sufficient capital to carry out all the necessary work by March 2021, according to Heye Daun, so that resources of one to two million ounces could be proven. Osino Resources' current market capitalization is approximately CAD 70.88 million at CAD 0.85. This means that if the company is successful, there is still some upside potential for investors.

Currency advantage in Namibia

The advantage of Osino Resources and B2Gold, with their operating activities in Namibia, in the current market environment is, among other things, that the country's currency is the weak South African Rand (ZAR). Because all work there is invoiced in this currency, these companies have a competitive advantage over regions that, for example, have to pay their costs in USD. The large mining companies such as B2Gold and Newmont usually operate on several continents in order to avoid national or regional risks.

Gold stocks can provide protection

With increasing global uncertainties, the interest in gold will continue to grow. The refinancing needs of states for the costs of corona measures and the loss of tax revenues will most likely ensure that interest in gold will remain high. For gold producers, the current price level of the precious metal is very lucrative. The faster the coffers are filled, the looser the money will sit in takeovers. A circumstance that will play into the hands of the shareholders of Osino Resources.

Steinhoff International, Blackrock Gold, Halo Labs - Watch out: Something is up with these penny stocks!

  • Gold

Stocks below the 1 dollar or euro mark, so-called penny stocks, are often sweepingly pigeonholed. Of course, there are some ailing companies or bankruptcy candidates among the penny stocks. When assessing the risk structure, it is also helpful to look at the nominal value. If this is only cents or fractions of cents anyway, then it is relatively "normal" that many companies are quoted in cents range. For investors and traders, however, the commitment in penny stocks has a decisive positive side effect. The mere fact that the share certificates are visually cheap makes them easier to buy, which increases trading volume and price movements. Thus, information that has not yet been adequately understood by the broad market and incorporated into the price is an excellent opportunity to make money. We present three penny stocks that should continue to gain in the near future.

Plug Power, Osino Resources, SAP - these values are being raised!

  • Gold

At the moment, events are unfolding both nationally and on the global stage. As expected, the lockdown was extended until mid-February, but thankfully we were spared the feared mega-lockdown. After a four-year presidency, Donald Trump officially said goodbye and left the White House, at least temporarily. Jack Ma came back after several weeks of abstinence and addressed his fan community in a video. As a result, Alibaba's stock market value rose by a whopping USD 63 billion. Values are currently being raised at other companies as well.

Lenovo, Triumph Gold, K+S: Are the stragglers jumping now?

  • Gold

Looking at the stock market today, one sees the major indexes at record highs and stocks, like Tesla and Ballard Power, far from anything that can be reasoned with. The current situation is a deterrent to many investors. But that's a mistake. Instead of staying completely out of the market, it's worth taking a look at stragglers. These still exist today. Many of these stragglers are indirectly benefiting from strong major trends and could be on the verge of a revaluation. Three of these representatives are Lenovo, Triumph Gold and even K+S.
