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.

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.

NIO, NewPeak Metals, Barrick Gold - The calm before the storm!

  • Gold

The stock indices are still in a celebratory mood. Both the DAX and the Dow Jones benchmark index again reached historic highs last week. In addition to all the euphoria, there was the successful debut of the crypto exchange Coinbase, which also helped Bitcoin, Etherum & Co to achieve new all-time highs. Meanwhile, the first signs of life came from the precious metals for the first time in months. Gold was able to stop its losing trend since the beginning of the year and should become interesting again due to the fundamental data. One can profit from the favorable entry opportunities!

Plug Power, Desert Gold, Bayer - Shares with opportunities despite all-time highs?

  • Gold

Almost all indices are near their all-time highs. No wonder, given the expansive monetary policy and the associated inflation expectations. Commodity prices, in particular, are seeing a sharp rise. Thursday, gold was able to break the resistance area at USD 1,750. Despite this positive environment, however, some stocks are far from their all-time high. We will take a closer look at these today.

Coinbase, Plug Power, NSJ Gold Corp. - Bitcoin, inflation, gold - triple whammy!

  • Gold

The crypto craze has erupted. Nothing is currently causing as much of a stir as cryptocurrencies, their trading platforms and all the service companies surrounding them. Never before have there been such price surges in associated assets in such a short period. There is widespread talk of the crypto world as a means to combat inflation and provide a new payment system. Let's be honest: a currency that fluctuates by more than 500% every six months is hardly suitable for mapping the payment flows of millions of transactions in the goods sector. A Bitcoin that cost EUR 10,000 in the summer of 2020 has reached prices of over EUR 50,000 today. How should one deal with this alleged "currency" - Impossible, as Bitcoin itself is probably inflationary!
