Desert Gold, dynaCERT, Valeo Pharma - good news and the right time

  • Investments

Investors and speculators have a common interest: they want to make money. While investors usually plan for a longer time frame, speculators often just wait for the next good company news, then exit and move on. Listed companies that are the focus of attention and show a certain degree of volatility offer an excellent opportunity for both investment profiles - especially on weak days. There are good reasons why three companies are particularly interesting at the moment.

Great interest in financing

Desert Gold Ventures is active in gold exploration in West Africa and owns projects of more than 400 km2. The company has released two good news releases this week, which are very exciting. Firstly, management has been able to confirm and expand on the assumptions about gold deposits on the projects in the latest drill program, setting the stage for further exploration work in the fourth quarter of 2020. In addition, financing of CAD 6.8 million was completed. The capital increase was originally planned at CAD 6.5 million. The oversubscription in magnitude is a good sign as it demonstrates investor confidence in the projects and management, and the company now has sufficient liquidity for the upcoming drilling programs.

Gold is becoming rarer and more precious

The gold sector is particularly interesting and especially the exploration sector. The gold reserves of the largest producers have declined significantly since 2012, by more than 34%. In addition, it is expected that the production volume will decrease from 2020 onwards. According to experts, the amount of gold produced annually is expected to decrease by 45% from currently 118 million ounces in 2020 to around 65 million ounces in 2029. Even amateurs can imagine the impact this decline will have on the price of gold. In addition, producers must continually ensure that mineable reserves remain at a certain level to ensure future revenues. This is why exploration, i.e. the discovery of new gold deposits, is important. The Desert Gold projects are located in the neighborhood of the producers B2Gold, Barrick Gold and Iamgold and therefore the potential acquisition is a realistic scenario.

Hydrogen makes diesel greener

The technology company dynaCERT has developed an innovation that offers environmental advantages. The hydrogen technology is called HydraGEN and is offered for retrofitting of diesel engines. The inert gas is generated on demand and enters the combustion process via the air supply. As a catalyst, the energy carrier increases the efficiency of combustion and ensures that fuel consumption is reduced and pollutant emissions are lowered.

United Nations and 700 workshops

In August, dynaCERT published several news releases that announced enormous potential. On the one hand, the company has made it into a United Nations program in which 200 cities worldwide are already participating. It is expected that in the future cities will order the hydrogen technology from dynaCERT. In addition, the company announced that in the future besides the automotive logistics company Mosolf also the workshop network Alltrucks in Europe will be able to offer, install and maintain the HydraGEN devices. Alltrucks is represented in 12 countries with 700 workshops and is a joint venture of the leading automotive and commercial vehicle suppliers Bosch, Knorr-Bremse and ZF.

Corona has hacked second quarter

The past quarter of dynaCERT was impacted by the restrictions related to the Corona Pandemic. For this reason, the company was not able to generate any special revenues. In an appropriate stock market environment and with success stories in sales, the share has the potential to exceed the February high of CAD 1.25.

Pharma without research risk

The situation at Valeo Pharma is also extremely exciting. The company focuses on the commercialization of medical products in Canada. Valeo Pharma does not conduct any research itself and therefore does not have a high cost risk or capital requirements, as is usually the case with research-based biotechnology companies. The company has numerous products in commercialization and a pipeline of other products awaiting regulatory approval. One of these products is Hesperco and, according to recent announcements, can be used as an immune supportive product to potentially fight the symptoms of Covid-19.

Capital increase offers entry opportunity

In connection with a financing round in the amount of CAD 6 million at a price of CAD 1.20, the share price is still capped until closing. Conversely, investors now have the opportunity to purchase the company's shares at this price level. With the additional liquidity from the capital increase, the company can strengthen its growth. Five weeks ago, the share price peaked at CAD 1.86. There is potential for new highs in connection with the commercialization of the Covid-19 product.

Diversification offers itself

Investors, who have all three companies in their portfolio, are diversified in special situations in the trend areas gold, hydrogen and Covid-19.


Conflict of interest & risk note

In accordance with §34b WpHG we would like to point out that Apaton Finance GmbH as well as partners, authors or employees of Apaton Finance GmbH may hold long or short positions in the aforementioned companies and that there may therefore be a conflict of interest. Apaton Finance GmbH may have a paid contractual relationship with the company, which is reported on in the context of the Apaton Finance GmbH Internet offer as well as in the social media, on partner sites or in e-mail messages. Further details can be found in our Conflict of Interest & Risk Disclosure.

K+S, Grenke, Desert Gold: When does uncertainty become an opportunity?

  • Investments

When shares make losses over weeks and months, shareholders hope for an end to the sell-off. Potential buyers ask themselves whether the investment opportunity has already arisen. But the end of a downward trend can always only be determined afterward and can hardly ever be determined exactly. Rather, investors must shed light on the background to a price decline to decide whether it is permanent or merely temporary. The K+S fertilizer group has already been selling off for many years - on a five-year horizon a loss of more than 80% has been recorded - but what is the reason for this?

Deutsche Bank, Daimler, Triumph Gold: What about these fallen angels?

  • Investments

When investigative journalists immerse themselves in the world of business, the name of Deutsche Bank is mentioned more and more often. Despite countless legal disputes and fines in recent years, the news flow does not end, the latest accusations being activities that observers call money laundering. The documentation surrounding the business relationship between Donald Trump and Deutsche Bank has cast what was once the world's largest financial institution, in a bad light. Although Trump had owed money to one department of the bank for a long time, another department of the bank lent money to the then dazzling real estate mogul to pay off his debts. Many investors would certainly not have thought that such a transaction, based on the principle of right pocket to left pocket would be possible at all. Deutsche Bank rejected a comment on the above-mentioned incident concerning banking secrecy.

Almonty, BASF, Bayer: where is it worth starting now?

  • Investments

The start of the week was marked by price losses. In Europe and North America, the leading indices closed in the red. The fear of further effects of the Corona Pandemic has dampened market sentiment. Given that the banknote presses are still running, the breather on the capital markets is again likely to be short-lived. At the time when a vaccine against Covid-19 receives approval, the economy will once again experience an unleashed boom - provided that people can and may want to return to their jobs. Which shares are worthwhile now?
