Barrick Gold, Triumph Gold, Yamana Gold - Precious metals for the portfolio

  • Gold

For investors in the gold sector 2019 was a year of liberation from a year-long sideways trend. During this period, the troy ounce of gold was traded in the range of approximately USD 1,257.00 to USD 1,557.00. In the time window from May to September, the price rose by around USD 300.00, thus causing a great deal of euphoria among investors. In addition to the physical precious metal, investors also have the opportunity to participate in the value chain from the extraction of the precious metal.

Heavyweight gold producer

The gold producer Barrick Gold is one of the largest market participants in this segment with a current price of EUR 15.79 and a market capitalization of over EUR 28 billion. Last year, the company's shares were traded between lows and highs of less than EUR 11.00 and more than EUR 18.00. Investors who had Barrick in their portfolios were able to experience volatility, but in regards to that this stock certainly has the charm of a fully comprehensive insurance policy for the financial system, diversification often outweighs as a motivation against price fluctuations.

Potential in the Yukon

The shares of the exploration company Triumph Gold was also subject to intensive price fluctuations last year. With a price of EUR 0.185 per share and a current market value of less than EUR 16 million, the company is one of the lightweights on the market. Triumph Gold is active in the Canadian Yukon and explores the company's own properties there. One of Triumph Gold's largest shareholders is Newmont with a stake of around 18%. The shares of Triumph Gold changed hands in 2019 between below EUR 0.15 and above EUR 0.35. It will probably only be a matter of time before the share wakes up from its slumber.

Gold price indicates where the price is heading

Yamana Gold is a precious metals producer with properties in North and South America. The company's shares changed hands last year at less than EUR 1.65 in the low and more than EUR 3.50 in the high. Currently, Yamana Gold has a market capitalization of EUR 3.1 billion at a price of EUR 3.38 and is thus in the midfield of the companies mentioned above.

The further development of the gold price will usually influence the interest of investors - the higher the price of the troy ounce, the higher the margin. In the case of Triumph Gold, it can be assumed that the management is seeking a takeover by a major gold producer. It stands to reason that Newmont is also on the list of candidates as a major shareholder.

Barrick Gold, Blackrock Gold, Osino Resources: buy when weak?

  • Gold

The price of gold and silver has come under pressure in the past few days and so too has the price of the shares of the companies involved in the creation of value for precious metals. The fear of another lockdown in connection with the Corona pandemic seems to be worrying the markets. Against this backdrop the central banks and governments continue to support the economy with measures. The correction in precious metals may now be an opportunity to enter, because when the presses are running at full speed, the oldest currency in the world is usually a safe haven.

BHP Group, Newcrest Mining, SolGold: Getting bogged down or putting all your eggs in one basket

  • Gold

When it comes to investing in commodity companies, the BHP Group is a household name. The British company is active worldwide, mining coal, iron ore, copper and other commodities and has long been considered a solid dividend earner. But recently the company has disappointed: Special effects put pressure on profits, unrest in Chile made life difficult for BHP and the Corona pandemic also left its mark: the bottom line at the end of the financial year at the end of June was a profit of no less than EUR 6.75 billion. While the mood among investors was not particularly good, BHP cut its dividend by around ten percent, thus spoiling shareholders’ sentiment even further. On a year-on-year basis, the share price fell by around 1.4%. In view of the good performance of copper following the outbreak of the pandemic, this is too little for many investors.

B2Gold, Barrick Gold, Desert Gold: Did Warren Buffett bet on the right horse?

  • Gold

The price of gold has stabilized above the USD 1,900.00 per troy ounce mark in recent weeks. Against the background that the Corona Pandemic is not slowing down and that a second wave is becoming measurable in many places, the actions taken by governments and central banks are continuing cheerfully, thus ensuring further demand for the world's oldest currency. Those who want to protect their assets are probably best off buying shares in a gold company like Warren Buffett, and for those who can't decide, there is also a solution.
