Coreo, Helma, Osino Resources - Diversification in values
In recent months, investors have focused on well-known Internet and technology companies such as Apple, Amazon, Facebook and Microsoft. Detached from the valuation, buyers are attracting new buyers, and so it is no wonder that new record prices are constantly being reached for the already most expensive listed companies in the world. The second and third rows are currently still getting little of the money, but it will only be a matter of time before the euphoria among the smaller companies also increases. So it may be worthwhile to take a look.

Required drilling by October 2020
Osino is a Canadian exploration company focused on the acquisition and development of gold projects in Namibia. Having achieved its original vision of finding Namibia's next significant gold deposit, the company is now focusing on rapidly advancing the exciting gold discovery in Twin Hills to reach new discoveries elsewhere in the belt. This the company will achieve with its winning formula of combining innovation and drive with technical experience and strong financial backing, says Osino Resources.
The company yesterday announced additional results from the recent drill program and David Underwood, Osino's VP-Exploration, provides details of the next steps: "The higher-grade shoot on the west side of Twin Hills Central is really shaping up in size and continuity. The shoot has now been delineated to 300 m downdip with over 200 m in strike, plunging to the northeast. The low-grade halo surrounding the shoot is over 200 m wide providing an ideal bulk mining target. After the recent oversubscribed financing and the consistently excellent drill results at Twin Hills Central, we have decided to accelerate the maiden resource estimate with additional diamond and RC drill rigs to get the necessary drilling done by October, 2020. Thereafter we will be drilling a large number of exploration targets from the recent IP survey as well as geochemical and magnetic targets that remain to be tested within the Twin Hills camp."
Issue of a new bond
Coreo AG from Frankfurt is a dynamically growing real estate company and focuses on German commercial and residential real estate. Investments are made in real estate with considerable potential for value enhancement and existing development needs, preferably in medium-sized centers. The aim is to build up an efficiently managed, high-yield real estate portfolio through prudent development. Coreo AG's strategy is based on an expansive and selective approach in the choice of business locations. High yield levels in Germany are preferred and provide the basis for long-term and stable rental income.
On 13 August 2020, Coreo announced the issue of a corporate bond with a volume of up to EUR 30 million and a term of 5 years. The public offering is expected to take place between August 24, 2020 and September 8, 2020. The bond will have a coupon of 6.75% p.a. payable semi-annually. It is planned to be listed on the Open Market of the Frankfurt Stock Exchange. For the current fiscal year, analysts at GBC Research expect investments totaling EUR 40 million. To this extent, the funds from the bond issue would increase the financial basis for the company's growth.
Solid sales and earnings development
HELMA Eigenheimbau AG is one of the leading German construction service providers with a full-service offer. The focus is thereby on the development, planning, sales as well as the construction management of individually planned single-family houses, which are built traditionally stone-on-stone on the properties of the customers. Via the subsidiary HELMA Wohnungsbau GmbH, which acts as a broadly diversified project developer and builder, it is also possible to acquire the individual dream house from one source in various metropolitan regions of Germany, also together with a suitable plot of land. In addition, HELMA Ferienimmobilien GmbH realizes attractive vacation properties at infrastructurally well developed locations on the North and Baltic Sea coast.
In the first six months of 2020, the company achieved sales growth of 3.6% to EUR 114.25 million (previous year: EUR 110.31 million) and, as expected, was below expectations in view of the Covid-19 pandemic, according to analysts from GBC Research. The restrictions associated with Covid-19 had primarily led to a noticeable decrease in incoming orders from EUR 140.6 million in the previous year to EUR 115.5 million. Despite the slight sales growth, HELMA reported a decline in EBIT from EUR 7.79 million in the previous year to EUR 6.92 million. The experts at GBC have set their estimates at a new target price of EUR 55.00 per share instead of the previous EUR 68.00 and continue to assign a 'buy' rating.
