Barrick Gold, Carnavale Resources, Yamana Gold: Where gold still shines

Public debt in Germany has exceeded the EUR 2.2 trillion mark for the first time, the Federal Statistical Office announced a few weeks ago. Per capita, the debt thus stands at EUR 26,532. Of course, such figures also unsettle investors. If the public sector is so indebted, this could also impact future monetary policy - after all, rising interest rates would significantly increase the cost of refinancing. That is an argument for the ultra-loose monetary policy to continue. That includes all the negative consequences, such as rising prices for tangible assets and products for daily use.

    Barrick Gold: Where will it go from here?

    There have always been various ways to hedge against rising prices. Germans like to rely on real estate. But these are already expensive and also rare. In addition, owner-occupiers are often willing to pay exorbitant prices, making it even more difficult for investors. The better alternative is shares. These securities securitize shares in companies and thus also the right to participate in future profits. In times of creeping demonetization, such holdings make sense. In the case of companies in the gold sector, there is also the fact that gold is regarded as a substitute currency and crisis metal - and is attracting increasing interest from investors, especially during challenging market phases. One of the best-known gold companies is Barrick Gold.

    The Company is active on almost every continent in the world and primarily mines gold. A little silver and a little copper are also produced as by-products. However, these shares are vanishingly small. Since Barrick turns a big wheel with its numerous mines and extracts large quantities of gold from the ground quarter after quarter, these reserves must also be replaced. The market currently has little confidence in the Barrick Gold share. Last year, reports of high free cash flows were even greeted with concern - many investors would probably have preferred the world's second-largest gold miner to invest instead of ultimately paying out a somewhat desperate special dividend. Barrick Gold's stock has lost about 27% over a year. Currently, the value is stabilizing somewhat, but the potential appears limited.

    Carnavale Resources: Step by step to success

    The chances are better for the shares of Carnavale Resources. The Company explores for gold, platinum and nickel in Western Australia. The flagship is the gold project Kookynie, but also the other properties, such as Ora Banda, Barracuda or Grey Dam, are making progress in 2021. Carnavale's goal is to always be on the lookout for prospective projects. Like a deck of cards, the management team around CEO Humphrey Hale aims to gradually improve the current hand. Humphrey Hale of Carnavale Resources recently revealed how the Company is proceeding and what else is planned for 2021.

    The Company currently has around AUD 4 million in its coffers and can use this to fund the exploration program planned for 2021 on all projects. While many smaller companies are only looking for one raw material, Carnavale can take advantage of the fact that gold or nickel and copper are often found in the vicinity of platinum metals. That makes the respective projects more economically robust, as they are not so dependent on developing a single raw material. By September, the Company expects exploration results from the Kookynie gold project, the Ora Banda gold project, and the Barracuda platinum-nickel-copper project. As the share is currently valued at only around EUR 12 million, speculative investors, in particular, should make a note of the value.

    Yamana Gold: Size does matter

    Investors who want to invest in more than just gold could also consider buying Yamana Gold shares. Silver and copper, after all, account for more than 10% of the Company's shares. From 2024, the share is even expected to increase significantly. Because of the mobility transition, the associated electrification of transport and the high copper demand of electromobility, Yamana's share could be a good choice. But there is a catch: Yamana is a mid-sized producer, so it will be under even more pressure if individual projects run into problems. The Company is not diversified enough to consistently meet the market's high expectations for consistent production numbers. Yamana's share price also shows a loss of more than 28% on a one-year horizon - the stock is not a good alternative.


    While Barrick Gold has the problem of replacing reserves but is currently unable to find suitable projects, something can always come up at Yamana. Landslides or strikes have sometimes ruined the quarterly figures of smaller companies. Carnavale Resources is a different story. The Company explores with a small and mighty team and operates in the early stages of exploration. Here, the goal is to gather as much information as possible with few resources that could become important in the future. The Company has several promising projects in its portfolio and pursues a cost-saving and flexible strategy. While the share must be considered more speculative, this also promises more potential for the share price in the best case.

    K+S, Globex Mining, BHP Group - Commodity stocks for the next supercycle

    Decarbonization is taking its toll. If you want to get out of fossil fuels, you need alternatives. But these alternatives require raw materials, some of which are not available in sufficient quantities. The result is rising prices. Goldman Sachs and Wells Fargo see commodities at the beginning of a supercycle, which means that the rally in commodities will last longer than 10 years. Tight supply is now further torpedoed by the Ukraine crisis and supply chain problems visible in China's ports. It is terrible for the industry but good for commodity producers. Today we look at three companies that could benefit from a supercycle.

    ESG is more than electric company cars, a paperless office and avoiding unnecessary air travel. Those who take the third pillar of the ESG approach seriously must also pay attention to good corporate governance. In the criteria of the index and data providers, good "governance" is about, among other things, management structures and sophisticated control instances at the corporate level. We explain why the "G" in ESG can bring tangible benefits to investors and how investors can invest in companies with good ESG criteria.

    Rising interest rates and inflation - Central banks worldwide now have to tighten the reins to keep demonetization from getting out of hand. Traditionally, technology stocks, which are otherwise in demand, tend to do poorly in such phases because they have higher financing costs. The higher discount rate makes corporate cash values less profitable than in low-interest rate environments. The NASDAQ-100 Index hit its high of 16,767 points in November 2021, just as the 10-year interest rate began to rise. Since then, the technology index has lost about 22%. But some stocks have more than halved in value. We take a closer look at the former high flyers.
