Barrick Gold, Osino Resources, Triumph Gold - who will double next?

August 4th, 2020 will probably go down in history books, the day when the gold price first climbed above the USD 2,000.00 mark. But perhaps it will also lose significance, because the USD 2,500.00 and USD 3,000.00 mark may soon fall. Why? Quite simply because, as the money supply increases, more and more people are fleeing into the oldest currency in the world: gold. The advantage of physical gold over certificates and other printable products is its uniqueness. While central banks around the world print money to maintain social peace during the Corona restrictions, the price marks for physical gold will fall like dominoes.

    Gold production will shrink

    Companies such as Barrick Gold, Iamgold and Newmont are responsible for the gold supply. Without these large producers, it would be impossible to satisfy the appetite of the market. However, experts also expect gold production to peak in 2020. According to forecasts, this year around 118 million ounces of gold will be brought to the market by the largest producers. Starting next year, a decline in the annual quantity is expected. In 2029 only 65 million ounces of gold are expected to reach the market. There is still some time to go before then, but a decline of around 45% in annual production volume by the end of the decade has the potential to cause some panic.

    Gold supply is getting harder

    B2Gold, Barrick Gold and Newmont, as well as the other big names, have already recorded a reduction in reserves of around 34% overall since 2012. In addition, the time window from discovery to production is lengthening on average from year to year. Whereas in 2000 it took around ten years to extract the first gold, by 2010 it will have taken 20 years and by 2020 it is expected to take 30 years. The reasons for this include environmental protection requirements and approval procedures.

    Takeovers and mergers will increase

    The producers are aware of this development and are also engaged in the exploration and development of their own projects. As the price of gold rises, the margins of these companies will increase significantly and fill the war chest for takeovers and mergers. The focus will soon be on companies in the exploration and development stage that have already discovered or are about to discover more than one million ounces of gold. Ideally, takeover targets in already established regions.

    Focus is on exploration

    There are some companies that could be considered as a possible target. Osino Resources is focused on the development of its own gold projects in Namibia. CEO Heye Daun has successfully built up a company in the past and sold it to B2Gold. Osino is now also active in the familiar neighbourhood and will probably be taken over by a large producer in the foreseeable future.

    Triumph Gold has projects in the Yukon and Newmont is already the largest shareholder. It is expected that these companies will be able to expand the gold deposits with further drilling, thus increasing the probability and value of a takeover. Exploration, i.e. the work of these companies, for example, is where the future supply for the major producers comes from.

    BioNTech, BYD and Desert Gold: Shares for the rebound

    • Gold
    • Electromobility
    • Biotechnology

    Is the rebound coming? After the heavy price losses of recent days and weeks, the market seems ripe for a countermovement. However, this would require a little more volume in the market. But then, especially companies that have not disappointed operationally should profit. BioNTech, for example, belongs to this group. The Company has published convincing figures, and analysts see up to 50% price potential. BYD's share price should also pick up speed again. Finally, the rapid shift to electric pureplay seems to be succeeding and HSBC has raised the price target. Gold was not a safe haven in the current correction. But it is worth looking at bombed-out stocks here as well. Desert Gold Ventures is one of them. The explorer has started a new drill program and secured financing.

    Barrick Gold, Edgemont Gold, Rio Tinto - Are gold stocks taking off again?

    • Gold

    With the start of the Ukraine crisis, the gold price skyrocketed, but since March 8, we find ourselves in a consolidation. The 200-day line is currently holding, and it could go up again from here. But let's look at the reasons for the weakness in the gold price. On the one hand, there is the strong dollar, which naturally puts pressure on the gold price, and on the other hand, bond yields in the US are climbing again. After the FED announced on May 4 that it would not raise interest rates by more than 0.5 percentage points, which was originally feared, the gold price jumped again. Demand for physical gold remains high. We look at three companies in the gold sector.

    Rheinmetall, Triumph Gold, K+S - Hype or sustainable?

    • Gold
    • fertilizer
    • Defense

    Already during the Corona pandemic, clear winners and losers could be identified. Vaccine manufacturers multiplied, and companies related to online trading also performed better than the market. In the current Ukraine crisis, however, the signs are changing. Suddenly, defense stocks, which were frowned upon a short time ago, are all the rage. Fertilizer companies, benefiting from the sanctions and the resulting supply shortages, are also gaining favor with investors. But how sustainable are the current increases? Gold mining stocks are also doing very well, but in contrast to Rheinmetall, Hensoldt & Co., they are performing much weaker.
