Barrick Gold, Kinross Gold, Sibanye Stillwater, Goldseek Resources - The Gold breakout!

  • Gold
Photo credits:

It took a long time, but now it is here: The gold breakout! It turned at USD 1,680 last week and yesterday ran up to USD 1,850. If you ask chart technicians, the rally will now run to at least USD 2,075 - the old high from the summer movement of 2020. The high at about USD 1,800 from 2021 is currently being successfully tested, after which the lights are green. The best beneficiaries will be gold miners and, of course, exploration companies with corresponding leverage. We present a few promising stocks.

About the author

Barrick Gold - The EUR 20 mark is made

During the Corona Crisis, many investors fled to the safe haven of gold. As a result, the price of an ounce of the precious yellow metal rose sharply again in May 2021. The all-time high from 2020 is now within reach. Mining can currently be driven again with slight restrictions, even to a new all-time high at over USD 2,000. On a twelve-month view, the gold price is now clearly in the focus of investors.

Although Barrick shares are currently among the best-performing gold stocks, CEO Mark Bristow complains that mining company investors appear to be "hysterically" chasing a quick buck. He sees the gold price currently supported by "irrational" behavior as a reaction to a pandemic-plagued economy. From this perspective, he should be pleased that his Company is in the gold investor spotlight.

Perhaps, after all, Mark Bristow's statements are intended as a side-swipe at Warren Buffett, who first euphorically jumped in and then dumped all his shares again in the fall of 2020. In any case, the Barrick share was able to regain the EUR 20 mark yesterday.

Kinross Gold - Small decline in production in Q1

Another well-known gold miner is Kinross Gold, a Canadian-based leading gold mining Company with mines and projects in the United States, Brazil, Russia, Mauritania, Chile and Ghana. Production reached over 2 million ounces in the 2020 pandemic year at a sustainable cost rate of USD 975, making Kinross one of the lowest-cost mid-tier producers in the world.

There was a bit of disappointment in the first-quarter numbers, however. Q1 US GAAP earnings rose 22% year-on-year to USD 149.5 million, or USD 0.12 per share, compared to USD 122.7 million, or USD 0.10 per share, in the same quarter of the previous year. Production decreased 2% year-on-year to 558,777 gold equivalent ounces due to lower production at the Tasiast and Round Mountain mines. Free cash flow fell 30% year-on-year to USD 75.6 million in the first quarter. We do not think that is a deal-breaker in a pandemic environment.

Kinross is currently on track to meet its fiscal 2021 production guidance of 2.4 million gold equivalent ounces, primarily due to expected higher production at Paracatu and Tasiast. The stock has turned around at EUR 6.17 and is now at EUR 6.54 - resistance at EUR 7.0 currently limits the chart to the upside.

Sibanye Stillwater - Another record result presented

The mining Company Sibanye Stillwater is active in precious metal mining in South Africa, the USA, Zimbabwe, Canada and Argentina. It is the world's largest producer of platinum, the second-largest producer of palladium, and the third-largest producer of gold. Sibanye was founded in 2002, and although it has a global presence, it has retained its headquarters in Weltevredenpark, South Africa.

The Company has undergone a significant balance sheet horse race over the last 4 years. Now, equity has been restored, and the Company is posting record quarterly results. Solid operating results from all segments were delivered with adjusted EBITDA up 78% to ZAR 19.8 billion or USD 1.3 billion. Q1 2020 pre-COVID production levels were slightly exceeded, with gold production up 5% to 249,392 ounces.

Sibanye Stillwater's fundamentals continue to be compelling at the start of the year. With the current trends in gold, silver, palladium and platinum, the outlook for the current year remains very positive. The share is currently trading stable at EUR 3.8 - the chart shows a quadrupling in 24 months. In our opinion, the story should continue to run well.

Goldseek Resources - Historic properties in top locations

In the slipstream of the big producers is the explorer Goldseek Resources. Explorers are currently gaining a lot of interest because they can quickly become the focus of larger interested parties in the upswing of precious metals. In a potential takeover, the buyer only pays the price for the resource estimate in the ground and does not have to take over any equipment or production facilities.

Goldseek has already announced excellent drilling results for this purpose. It currently owns five prospective projects, four of which are in the gold stronghold of Quebec and one property in Ontario. The Hemlo camp in Ontario is located just 4 km north of the Hemlo mine operated by Barrick Gold. One of the claims is also near Wallbridge Mining, which is following the Detour Gold trend.

Just 30 kilometers away from Fenelon is the Beschefer advanced exploration zone where drilling will now begin. The data review and 3-D modeling work will allow Goldseek to conduct the 5,000-meter "maiden" drill program in 2021, with the goal of resource definition in 2022. The B-14 zone is a large-scale structure located in a favorable gold environment with good continuity and high-grade mineralization. To date, it has only been tested by wide-area historical drilling with holes spaced 75 to 100 meters apart. Exciting results should be announced here in the coming months.

Goldseek Resources is currently valued at just under CAD 6 million. With appropriate announcements, it should give a jump in price. Those who do not want to miss the trend can buy an initial position now at CAD 0.18.

Central African Gold, TUI, Lufthansa - Attention, these were the lows!

  • Gold

The upward movement at the stock exchanges is very advanced because, in the last years, the higher valuation of the shares (and real estate) was funded by cheap money from the central banks. Now, however, inflation shows up in the statistics, for Europe officially a plus of 3,8%. This inflation rate, by its measuring method, corresponds little to reality. It is generally known, the actual price markup in the relevant goods might already lie beyond the 5% mark. One thinks here only of the exploding gasoline prices, the bread roll at the baker or the restaurant attendance after the reopening. Precious metals could be a tried and tested means of achieving real purchasing power protection. Let us do the math.

Troilus Gold, Rio Tinto, BHP - Exploit uncertainty!

  • Gold

The falling demand for iron ore by the world's largest consumer, China, has put enormous pressure on the prices for iron ore and led to the downward slide in the share prices of major players such as Rio Tinto and BHP. In the medium term, prices will have to rise again due to high demand. Likewise, precious metals should rise in times of high inflation, including copper, which is in demand due to the growth of electromobility, among other things.

Alibaba, Kainantu Resources, MorphoSys - The turnaround beckons here

  • Gold

A stock that has fallen sharply can offer the chance to make significant gains relatively quickly. Kostolany once said, "What seems cheap can become much cheaper". In other words, one should be wary of reaching for the falling knife. The shares that you have on your watch list as turnaround candidates should be monitored as closely as possible in order to strike at the right moment. The first thing to do after a stock crash is to wait for it to bottom out. To do this, one observes the Company's earnings position. In addition, the Company's story should fit, and entry should be sought using chart technology. Then nothing stands in the way of more considerable price gains. Today, we look at three companies that could be on the verge of a turnaround.
