The advantage of volatile markets is that investors can see potential entry prices that they have missed in the past. Whether or not it is still worth taking action now, of course, depends on the future prospects. A price correction in the share price usually has its reasons, but crashes are special opportunities for those who invest in the medium to long term and follow an anti-cyclical investment approach.

    Focus on gold

    Scottie Resources is a Canadian exploration company focused on exploring its own properties in the Golden Triangle of British Columbia. In addition to the Scottie Gold Mine, which produced a total of 95,426 ounces of gold at an average grade of 16.2 g/t from 1981 to 1985, the company also owns other areas in the region. With 24,589 hectares, the company is a serious player in the Golden Triangle.

    With the successful closing of over CAD 3.5 million in financing, the Company is well funded for the current year to execute a planned drilling program. Scottie Resources' market capitalization is less than CAD 20 million at a price of CAD 0.215. A successful drill program should boost the value of the stock.

    The Silver Share

    The shares of First Majestic Silver have already gone on a rollercoaster ride in 2020. At the beginning of the year, the shares changed hands at over CAD 16.20 and in mid-March the value briefly slipped below CAD 5.40. In the meantime the price has already recovered to a level of over CAD 12.00. The price fluctuations of the shares are due to the volatile silver price.

    The correlation of silver price and share price is due to the fact that the company is margin-dependent. The lower the price of the precious metal, the lower the profit or the higher the loss. The same applies in the other direction. If you want to speculate that the silver price will rise, First Majestic Silver shares might be the right instrument. The market value of the company was recently over CAD 2.6 billion.

    Glencore, Almonty Industries, Albemarle - Commodities on the verge of a rebound

    • Mining
    • Tungsten
    • Lithium
    • Resources

    The first quarter of the stock market year 2024 is already history, and despite many disruptive factors, it has turned out better than many expected. Germany's leading index, the DAX, achieved growth of almost 11% and reached a new all-time high. The precious metal gold also reached the highest level in its history at USD 2,233 per ounce at the end of the quarter. In contrast, important commodities needed for the climate and energy transition are lagging. After months of bottoming out, copper, tungsten and lithium offer attractive entry opportunities at the current levels.

    Investors appreciate clear investment stories: the hydrogen producer with the revolutionary technology or the electronics company with the hot game console. But when it comes to investing for the long term and keeping risks under control, it's also worth looking at conglomerates or companies with strong partners. Why? If a company has several arrows in its quiver, it increases its chances of hitting the bull's eye with at least one of them.
