Central banks around the world are currently printing more money than ever before in connection with the Corona Pandemic to keep the rest of the economy afloat and maintain social peace. The short-time work allowance is equivalent to an unconditional basic income, and given the alternatives, that is a good thing at the moment. The danger, however, is that an addiction to cheap money will arise and the bubble in the shares of Facebook, Amazon, Apple, Netflix, Google (Alphabet) and Microsoft will continue to escalate. The value of these six US companies is now almost equal to the combined market value of the following indices: DAX, France CAC, FTSE 100, Italy MIB, S&P TSX and Spain IBEX. But the winner of this development is also the oldest currency in the world: gold!

    Rescue measures with side effects

    Diego Parrila manages a USD 450 million investment fund and has indicated that the price of an ounce of gold could rise to USD 5,000.00 in the next three to five years. "What you’re going to see in the next decade is this desperate effort, which is already very obvious, where banks and government just print money and borrow, and bail everyone out, whatever it takes, just to prevent the entire system from collapsing," Parrilla said in an interview with Bloomberg. If you want to escape the bubble of fiat currencies and seek protection from inflation, there is no way around gold.

    Experts predict rise

    Gold production is running at full speed, as at a price of USD 1,800.00 the profit margins for producers are currently high. If one believes the forecasts of Goldman Sachs and Bank of America, the price will have potential up to USD 2,000.00 or even USD 3,000.00 in the next 12 months. The reality, however, is that no one can say for sure at the moment how long the measures taken by politicians and central banks will be needed and when the day of reckoning will come. Until then, money will be busy printed and distributed.

    Exploration in the key position

    If you as an investor want to profit from the rise in the price of gold, you should look at the exploration industry, this is where gold is found. Without exploration, global reserves will continue to shrink. In the period from 2012 to 2019 the gold reserves of the largest producers have already decreased by 34%.

    Considering that the production peak of the precious metal is expected to be reached in 2020, the focus from now on should be on exploration. Barrick Gold expects global gold production to decline from around 118 million ounces in 2020 to less than 65 million ounces in 2029. The shortage on the supply side is likely to meet panicky demand as inflation rises.

    Investors position themselves

    The winners of this development will be companies such as Desert Gold Ventures, Scottie Resources and Triumph Gold. These companies are active in exploration and focus on expanding their existing discoveries and exploring for new deposits. Companies of this type pursue the goal of being acquired by a major producer.

    They usually pay a price per proven ounce in the ground. Depending on the region and market phase, the price can vary between USD 100.00 and 200.00 as a rule of thumb. In 2018, on average more than USD 200.00 was paid in Africa. Due to the rising price of gold, it can be assumed that the trend will be rising rather than falling.

    Multiplication potential of the industry

    Desert Gold Ventures is active in West Africa and plans to discover up to six million ounces of gold there. Ross Beaty is on board as investor and the company's properties cover more than 400 km2 and are located in the neighborhood of well-known producers such as B2Gold, Barrick Gold and Iamgold. Scottie Resources operates in British Columbia's Golden Triangle and has Eric Sprott among its investors. Triumph Gold is active in the Yukon and already has a producing anchor investor in Newmont.

    The market capitalisation of Desert Gold is currently CAD 24.4 million, Scottie Resources CAD 40.9 million and Triumph Gold CAD 32.6 million. The potential of these companies is enormous and in view of their current stock market valuation, there is a realistic chance of a multiplication of the share price if they continue to develop successfully.

    Higher, faster, further: BYD, Infinity Stone, Porsche, Varta - The energy transition stock portfolio is wanted!

    • Mining
    • Gold
    • Electromobility
    • GreenTech

    The words "energy turnaround" are used a lot in public. The majority understand it to mean the use of GreenTech to generate energy while avoiding dangerous climate gases. Unfortunately, the leaks from the Nord Stream 2 pipeline, which is not in operation, are leaking the amount of gas into the atmosphere every day that the state of Denmark consumes in an entire week. This makes us painfully aware of how strongly warlike actions counteract efforts to save the climate. On the stock market, it is important to turn our gaze away from current events and toward a more peaceful future, where good ideas for sustainable change will also be rewarded. Which stocks belong in the portfolio?

    Due to the explosions in the Baltic Sea pipelines Nord Stream 1 and 2, a switch to other energy sources is inevitable, especially for German industry. Fertilizer producer K+S, based in Kassel, is affected by this. The situation is different with Barsele Minerals. The Canadian company is exploring large gold areas in sunny Sweden and plans to mine up to 3.5 million ounces of the precious metal in the future.

    Barrick Gold, Tocvan Ventures, Newmont, Glencore - Long-term positioning in gold makes sense

    • Mining
    • Gold
    • Commodities
    • Investments

    The FED's recent interest rate hikes and Chairman Jerome Powell's statement sent both equity and precious metals markets into the valley of tears. By all means, the monetary guardians want to curb rampant inflation. Whether this will succeed seems at least questionable. After all, it should not be forgotten that this would put an end to the already sputtering engine of the global economy. In addition, many already highly indebted countries are falling into ever greater problems due to higher interest payments. Thus, it is time to take a long-term, anticyclical position in the precious metals sector.
