Desert Gold Ventures, Glencore, Kinross - now is the right time!

Last week, the stock markets in Europe and North America continued their recovery from the lows of March 2020. However, as the week drew to a close, declines were recorded again, due to the tone of the West's tightening stance towards the Chinese leadership in connection with the health and economic consequences of the Corona Crisis. According to media reports, the five secret services of Australia, Canada, New Zealand, the USA and the UK found out that the political leadership in Beijing covered up the deadly danger of the Corona Virus at the beginning of its spread. This accusation holds a lot of potential for further market uncertainties and gold is likely to gain further importance as a safe haven. The Bank of America recently called a potential of up to USD 3,000.00 per troy ounce in 2021. Since we have learned that the price of WTI futures can be negative, price targets of this range for gold are no longer utopian - perhaps the potential is even greater.

    Advantages of gold companies

    There are different ways in which investors can position themselves in the gold asset class. Besides coins and bars with storage costs, certificates with issuer default risk are available. Alternatively, shares of listed companies that are active in the gold industry can be used.

    The creation of value from gold can be extremely lucrative, because the value of exploration companies usually increases when new deposits are discovered. The value driver for producers is a rising price per troy ounce as long as costs are not correlated. Low energy costs also increase margins for the industry.

    Drilling program delivers potential

    The Canadian company Desert Gold Ventures focuses on the exploration of areas in Mali on the border with Senegal in West Africa. The management has more than 300 square kilometers of exploration licenses available for development.

    The company has already been successful on several occasions and the next steps in the drilling programs will be to obtain further information on the gold content and potential quantity in the ground. In the most recent announcement, management has announced that the upcoming drilling program covers 10,000 metres.

    Continued success

    All holes are targeted at extensions of the known mineralization and, for example, at the Gourbassi West area, a 33 metre wide intersection grading 3.52 g/t gold at surface is being further examined and at Barani East a 13 metre wide section grading 6.28 g/t gold is being explored at depth.

    As gold resources increase, the likelihood that well-known producers with a focus on the region will take a closer look at Desert Gold Ventures increases. A takeover is the usual exit scenario of exploration companies. The market value of Desert Gold Ventures was less than 10 million CAD at the closing price of 0.10 CAD on Friday.

    Alternative to the majors

    The gold producer Kinross closed at CAD 6.84 on Friday and its market capitalization was CAD 8.6 billion. In the past three months, the shares changed hands between CAD 2.72 and 7.25. The shares of the commodity company Glencore have traded between EUR 1.24 and 2.84 in the past three months. On Friday the shares closed at EUR 1.70, which corresponds to a market value of EUR 23.2 billion.

    While the two majors are swinging with the market, the great upside potential of Desert Gold Ventures lies in the success of its drilling programs.

    BioNTech, BYD and Desert Gold: Shares for the rebound

    • Gold
    • Electromobility
    • Biotechnology

    Is the rebound coming? After the heavy price losses of recent days and weeks, the market seems ripe for a countermovement. However, this would require a little more volume in the market. But then, especially companies that have not disappointed operationally should profit. BioNTech, for example, belongs to this group. The Company has published convincing figures, and analysts see up to 50% price potential. BYD's share price should also pick up speed again. Finally, the rapid shift to electric pureplay seems to be succeeding and HSBC has raised the price target. Gold was not a safe haven in the current correction. But it is worth looking at bombed-out stocks here as well. Desert Gold Ventures is one of them. The explorer has started a new drill program and secured financing.

    Barrick Gold, Edgemont Gold, Rio Tinto - Are gold stocks taking off again?

    • Gold

    With the start of the Ukraine crisis, the gold price skyrocketed, but since March 8, we find ourselves in a consolidation. The 200-day line is currently holding, and it could go up again from here. But let's look at the reasons for the weakness in the gold price. On the one hand, there is the strong dollar, which naturally puts pressure on the gold price, and on the other hand, bond yields in the US are climbing again. After the FED announced on May 4 that it would not raise interest rates by more than 0.5 percentage points, which was originally feared, the gold price jumped again. Demand for physical gold remains high. We look at three companies in the gold sector.

    Rheinmetall, Triumph Gold, K+S - Hype or sustainable?

    • Gold
    • fertilizer
    • Defense

    Already during the Corona pandemic, clear winners and losers could be identified. Vaccine manufacturers multiplied, and companies related to online trading also performed better than the market. In the current Ukraine crisis, however, the signs are changing. Suddenly, defense stocks, which were frowned upon a short time ago, are all the rage. Fertilizer companies, benefiting from the sanctions and the resulting supply shortages, are also gaining favor with investors. But how sustainable are the current increases? Gold mining stocks are also doing very well, but in contrast to Rheinmetall, Hensoldt & Co., they are performing much weaker.
