Barrick Gold, Desert Gold Ventures, Triumph Gold - the gold boom has begun

  • Gold

The price of gold has been rising for more than a year and there is no end in sight. As long as the central banks print money to cure the problems of the Corona Pandemic, the flight from money will continue and investors will exchange paper for gold or other tangible assets. If you have no plans today, then you should think about investing in gold. If you already have a busy schedule, then you should take the time. Don't put yourself in the position of being annoyed at not having traded after these lines when the price reaches USD 2,000.00 and above.

Margins increase and reserves decrease

Barrick Gold is one of the largest gold producers in the world. The company has gold and copper projects in 13 different countries around the globe. The focus is on regional diversification as well as high margin and long mine life. As the price of gold rises, the margin will also continue to increase. The temptation suggests that production volumes will also be increased, so that revenues will continue to rise even at this high level.

The biggest challenge for Barrick and all other gold producers, however, is the fact that reserves are continually shrinking - and rapidly. Since 2012, the largest producers have recorded a 34% decline in reserves. Barrick also predicts that by 2020 the production peak of all companies will be reached with around 118 million ounces and that in the following years significantly less new gold will be on the market. By 2029, the annual production rate is even expected to fall below 65 million ounces. Producers can fix the decline in reserves most easily by taking over exploration companies. An M&A wave in the gold sector is likely to start soon. So anyone who wants to invest in gold should have a foot in the door of promising exploration companies.

Acquisition target in West Africa

Desert Gold is active in West Africa and has properties covering more than 400 km2. The company has proven gold occurrences in various locations in the past and is currently exploring for further structures containing the precious metal. The management has set a target of up to six million ounces to be proven on the properties. The current and future drilling programs are therefore designed to accumulate the amount of deposits towards this magnitude.

Desert Gold is not alone in the region and is surrounded by renowned producers such as B2Gold, Barrick Gold and Iamgold. These producers already operate mines in West Africa and are potential buyers of Desert Gold. The exploration company becomes attractive for a takeover already with a critical amount of gold reserves. In Africa, takeovers in 2018 have already paid more than USD 200.00 per ounce in the ground - and at that time the price of gold was significantly lower.

Fresh capital in the bank

Triumph Gold is successfully exploring for gold deposits on its properties in the Yukon, Canada. The company already has the producer Newmont on board as a major shareholder. As with most successful exploration companies, Triumph Gold focuses on the acquisition by a producer as an exit strategy for its shareholders.

An acquisition can be interesting for a producer for a number of reasons. If the acquirer is already active in the region, such a transaction has many organisational advantages in the neighbourhood. The infrastructure and personnel are already largely in place. But it also happens that a takeover means the entry of a producer into a new region. Triumph Gold announced the completion of a financing last Friday. According to this, the company has received more than CAD 3.3 million in fresh capital. With the money, the management can continue to beautify the bride.

Plug Power, Triumph Gold, Moderna - Take position before it's too late!

  • Gold

The new President of the United States, Joe Biden, and his predecessor, Donald Trump, have one thing in common: building up new mountains of debt. Just in time for his inauguration, the 46th President of the United States announced a new USD 1.9 trillion aid package for the economy and consumers. At some point, the extreme increase in global government and corporate and household debt will result in a major disaster. One way out is to invest in real assets. Position yourself now, before it is too late!

BYD, Fokus Mining, Steinhoff International: How to trade hot stocks!

  • Gold

If you want to invest in the most popular stocks, you need nerves of steel. Some stocks generate a return of several hundred percent. Others are involved in spectacular legal disputes and others lead what at first glance appears to be a somewhat speculative existence, as a penny stock. How investors can deal with trending stocks is explained using the examples of BYD, Fokus Mining and Steinhoff International.

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.
