Central banks have been printing more money than ever before since the outbreak of the Corona Pandemic. Those who want to escape from money are buying shares or purchasing physical assets such as real estate or precious metals. Gold is the oldest and most secure currency in the world. The value of bars and coins has been rising since the second quarter of 2019 and is increasingly gaining momentum. In the case of Wirecard, the extra time has begun and the fair value will move towards zero after the insolvency filing. What is now going on at Steinhoff? An exciting week has begun.

Gold stock may continue to rise

The Canadian gold company Desert Gold is exploring its more than 400 km2 projects in western Mali on the border with Senegal. The company is focused on gold and in the past, deposits of the precious metal have been discovered in attractive quantities at several locations. The projects are surrounded by mines from renowned producers such as B2Gold and Barrick Gold. In the current and future drilling programs the goal is to discover reserves of up to six million ounces.

According to S&P Global, Market Intelligence, in 2018, acquisitions in Africa paid more than USD 200 per ounce in the ground. At that time, however, the price of gold was largely trading below USD 1,300.00 and is now traded at around USD 1,800.00. Last week Desert Gold acquired another area for projects. As a result, the value of the company has continued to increase and now stands at around CAD 24 million. As soon as positive information from the current drilling program becomes known, the interest in the share should continue to increase.

Is a solution imminent?

The Steinhoff trading group has hit the headlines due to balance sheet manipulation. A high debt burden of more than 10 billion USD is causing management and shareholders great headaches, which may soon be ended by a settlement. In the past financial year 2019, the company increased its sales by 5% from EUR 11,435 million to EUR 11,992 million. The bottom line EBITDA increased by 3% from EUR 771 million to EUR 791 million. In the first quarter of the current fiscal year, sales increased by 7% from EUR 3,214 million to EUR 3,445 million compared to the same period of the previous year.

In light of the fact that the market value of Steinhoff currently amounts to around EUR 263 million, a solution with the creditors will have an enormous effect on the share price. In the coming weeks, the share will probably keep speculators busy more than ever.

Messengers of information ignored

The Wirecard scandal can be viewed from various perspectives. The suspicion of fraud is unprecedented and seems to be hard to beat in its unscrupulousness. The suspicion is now raised that the management was able for a long period of time to bypass the auditors and falsify the balance sheets. This fact in itself is bad for confidence in the capital market and the industry.

However, the whole affair takes on a completely different quality because for many years, market participants have regularly pointed out that Wirecard's figures and development cannot be correct. The allegation of fraud has been flying around for more than ten years. The responsible institutions, organizations and auditors could have averted a great amount of damage if the persons who sent the information had not been ignored or punished, but rather if the controlling institutions had carefully examined the facts of the case. Now the "cat and mouse game" is over - game over. Sorry, no bonus.

NIO, NewPeak Metals, Barrick Gold - The calm before the storm!

  • Gold

The stock indices are still in a celebratory mood. Both the DAX and the Dow Jones benchmark index again reached historic highs last week. In addition to all the euphoria, there was the successful debut of the crypto exchange Coinbase, which also helped Bitcoin, Etherum & Co to achieve new all-time highs. Meanwhile, the first signs of life came from the precious metals for the first time in months. Gold was able to stop its losing trend since the beginning of the year and should become interesting again due to the fundamental data. One can profit from the favorable entry opportunities!

Plug Power, Desert Gold, Bayer - Shares with opportunities despite all-time highs?

  • Gold

Almost all indices are near their all-time highs. No wonder, given the expansive monetary policy and the associated inflation expectations. Commodity prices, in particular, are seeing a sharp rise. Thursday, gold was able to break the resistance area at USD 1,750. Despite this positive environment, however, some stocks are far from their all-time high. We will take a closer look at these today.

Coinbase, Plug Power, NSJ Gold Corp. - Bitcoin, inflation, gold - triple whammy!

  • Gold

The crypto craze has erupted. Nothing is currently causing as much of a stir as cryptocurrencies, their trading platforms and all the service companies surrounding them. Never before have there been such price surges in associated assets in such a short period. There is widespread talk of the crypto world as a means to combat inflation and provide a new payment system. Let's be honest: a currency that fluctuates by more than 500% every six months is hardly suitable for mapping the payment flows of millions of transactions in the goods sector. A Bitcoin that cost EUR 10,000 in the summer of 2020 has reached prices of over EUR 50,000 today. How should one deal with this alleged "currency" - Impossible, as Bitcoin itself is probably inflationary!
