Desert Gold, Endeavour Mining, Newmont - Gold is rallying as expected

I pointed out the double bottom in gold in one of my earlier articles, and since then, the price has risen over USD 200. Interestingly, the buy-side consists mainly of young investors up to 25 years old. According to research from several online brokers, they own 39% of gold - 3 years ago, it was only 26%. This percentage is three times higher than in the overall population. Inflows into physically deposited gold ETFs amounted to nearly 34 tons. Driven by inflation fears and political tensions, gold is enjoying a renewed revival. We take a look at three gold stocks today.

Desert Gold - Exciting new exploration targets found

Since the last update in mid-April, a lot has happened at Desert Gold's SMSZ project. New exploration targets and possible gold anomalies have been identified along the western concession area. Meanwhile, more than 75% of the planned exploration program has been completed. Exploration drilling is 59% complete, and auger drilling has already been over-completed at 107%, as has soil sampling at 110%.

Drilling to the north of the Goubassi West deposit means that the gold zone is now 3km long. The newly discovered gold zone returned 8.95 grams per tonne gold in a grab sample. A total of seven new gold anomalies up to 2.4km in length have been discovered. Currently, no results are available for 9,764 samples. A second drill rig is scheduled to arrive in June to accelerate exploration.

Approximately 170 additional air core holes are planned to be drilled over 8,500m to test the newly discovered gold anomalies further. The planned drill meters may be increased as more drill sample results are received. In parallel, the Company is working on the 43-101 report, which is expected to be completed in the fourth quarter. So things are moving forward, but the share has still not managed to break out of the sideways range of EUR 0.09 to 0.12. One should have this value on the watchlist and follow the news.

Endeavour Mining - Cheaper than the big miners

Endeavor Mining is the largest gold producer in West Africa with producing mines in Senegal, Ivory Coast and Burkina Faso and a strong portfolio of advanced development projects and exploration facilities in the Birimian Greenstone Belt. The Canadian Company has cleaned up its portfolio and is focusing on larger mines with lower costs. Currently, production can be had for USD 868 per ounce.

The Agbaou mine was sold, and the Terenga Gold Corporation was acquired in November 2020 already. As a result, the production costs for one ounce could be pushed down by USD 31 to USD 868. Due to the purchase of the Terenga assets, the Company currently still has debts, but these should be repaid quite quickly. In the future, the Company will invest more in exploration, with a lot expected from the greenfield area in particular.

The figures for the first quarter were impressive. Gold production doubled and profits climbed 111% to USD 0.50. If the gold price continues to rise, earnings will improve accordingly. A share buyback program is active and there is a dividend yield of 1.5%. While other large mining companies are valued at a P/E ratio of over 20, Endeavour has a P/E ratio of only 11.

Newmont - Basic investment in gold

Newmont is the undisputed number 1 gold producer. On May 19, the stock reached a multi-year high, which is not only related to the rising gold price. The first-quarter numbers were good. Net income for the first quarter of 2021 was USD 538 million, or 67 cents per share, and revenue was about USD 2.9 billion.

Operationally, improvement can be seen primarily at former Goldcorp mines, reflected in production volumes and production costs. In addition, the CEO announced that Newmont is looking at large copper projects, where production will be significantly expanded. Copper is an absolute trend metal due to electrification.

The stock has broken out to the upside, the Company has declared a share buyback program, and there is a dividend yield of about 3% on top. Newmont, as the number 1 gold producer, will benefit the most from a rising gold price. However, investors should not buy at the high but wait for a setback.

Carnival, TUI, Desert Gold - A total upswing or is it all over again?

  • Gold

It is probably one of the strangest travel waves since we could remember. For months we Germans could not leave our own country's borders without great effort; the ski season in 2020/21 fell victim to the COVID pandemic almost completely. Now we experience amazingly low incidences, which probably would have come even without lockdown...but let's take that as a given because some action had to be taken as public proof of action, after all. Now travel is possible again with good conditions for the vaccinated and a bit more cumbersome for recovered, healthy and non-vaccinated. Exciting to observe: How are the travel companies doing now?

Bayer, White Metal Resources, Barrick Gold - Trendsetting news

  • Gold

At Federal Reserve's meeting, runaway inflation was the topic par excellence. With US consumer prices up 5% in May, market participants assumed at least an announcement of a pullback in bond market volume. However, an interest rate hike, which would actually be necessary for price stability, is not considered before 2023, according to FED Chairman Jerome Powell. Thus, through the continued ultra-loose monetary policy, he refers to the attitude that economic growth and a rising stock market are more important than low inflation.

Barrick Gold, Triumph Gold, Bayer - is a golden summer coming?

  • Gold

An old stock market adage says: Sell in May and go away. In German: Sell your positions; in summer, the market will consolidate. There was a slight correction at the beginning of May, but the DAX has been climbing since then. It is currently trying to reach the 16,000 point mark. The price of gold recently traded above USD 1,900 for the first time again, which can certainly be understood as a sign that investors want to secure their money from inflation. While the US Federal Reserve emphasized that it does not want to take any countermeasures for the time being, the US Treasury Secretary Yellen recently surprised with the statement that higher interest rates would be good for the United States. It remains exciting. There is the possibility of a golden summer on the markets.
