2020 shows an extreme increase in government debt in the Eurozone. Due to the Corona Crisis, the ratio of public debt to gross domestic product increased to 90.7%, according to the Eurostat statistics agency. The situation worsened further in the crisis countries, especially in Greece. There, the debt-to-GDP ratio was 205.6%, followed by Italy with 155.8% and Portugal with 133.6%. There is no end in sight to this spiral. In the long term, however, investors can protect themselves by investing in the precious metals sector.

    "[...] We quickly learned that the tailings are high-grade, often as high as 20 grams of gold per tonne; because they are produced by artisanal miners, local miners who use outdated technology for gold production. [...]" Ryan Jackson, CEO, Newlox Gold Ventures Corp.

    Sierra Grande Minerals - At the beginning of the curve

    In addition to the growing national debt, the inflation rate has also been climbing since the easing of the Corona pandemic. Inflation in Germany was plus 4.1% in September. That represents the highest monthly year-on-year increase in consumer prices in 28 years. The high price increase is a temporary effect, according to central bankers, who are therefore insisting on the ultra-loose monetary policy with low interest rates and further unlimited bond purchases. A quick tapering, i.e. a scaling back of the purchase programs or even quick, appropriate interest rate increases, would not be possible under the above-mentioned debt issues without causing the financial system to totter and plunging the states into bankruptcy.

    Therefore, although the price has not yet completed its consolidation wave in the overriding upward trend, gold remains without alternative protection against inflation. An investment in gold mining stocks should pay off in the long run. At the moment, the price is again fighting for the 1,780 point mark. A test of the low for the year in the direction of USD 1,680 per ounce is possible but should be seen anticyclically as buying opportunities.

    The situation is interesting with the junior exploration Company Sierra Grande Minerals, which has set its focus on deposits along the Walker Lane trend, historically known as high grade, in the prime mining region of Nevada. With four projects, Glitra, Sat, B&C Springs-Mildred and Betty East, covering a combined 1207 ha, it found its place alongside high-grade mines from majors such as Barrick Gold, Kinross, SSR, Hecla and Coeur. A total of 1,805 soil geochemical samples were collected from the four concession areas. The objective of the recently completed work was to conduct a complete soil geochemical sampling with extensive area sampling.

    Recently, positive results have been received from Sierra Grande Minerals regarding the B&C Springs-Mildred project located in the southern Paradise Range in the Fairplay Mining District, not far east of the Paradise Peak open-pit gold mine. The results of the soil geochemical programs reconfirm the existence of mineralized structures on the Canadian properties. The potential for an intrusion-related system along the B&C Springs trend appears high. In the coming months, gold-bearing zones in the area of the Mildred Mine will now be investigated. In addition, management is considering expanding the claim holdings to the west.

    Sierra Grande Minerals is still in the early stages of exploration work. Looking at the Lassonde curve, Sierra Grande Minerals has the opportunity for disproportionate share price increases if the results continue to be positive, of course with increased risk. The capitalization of the Canadian Company is currently just EUR 4.80 million.

    Xiaomi - Attack on the EV market

    By contrast, the technology group Xiaomi has established itself in the market. In terms of smartphone sales, it even managed to knock US giant Apple and top dog Samsung off their thrones in the second quarter with 12.7 million units. Within a year, the Chinese Company was able to increase its sales in Europe by 67.1%. Now Xiaomi wants more. In addition to cooperating with Trade Desk, a leading digital advertising provider, the ambitious management intends to conquer the EV market.

    As early as the first half of 2024, the first battery-powered Xiaomi automobile is expected to roll off the assembly lines, and then mass production will begin, the Company announced via Twitter. A new model is then to follow annually. Xiaomi made a public commitment in March to invest USD 10 billion in a new electric car division over the next 10 years.

    The innovative Company's share price was able to form a double bottom in the area of EUR 2.40 after a long downward slide and has a rebound opportunity at the current level of initially around EUR 3.20.

    Infineon - Shortly before breakout

    From a chart perspective, the DAX Company Infineon is currently facing a decision. A new 15-year high on a breakout above the EUR 38.20 mark could give the Munich-based share price wings once again. Fundamentally, everything is going like clockwork at the moment, and analysts are enthusiastic.

    The major Swiss bank UBS has left its rating for Infineon at "Buy". No significant impulses are foreseeable for the third quarter in the semiconductor sector, wrote analyst Francois-Xavier Bouvignies. Infineon remains one of the favorites given demand from the auto sector, he added. Goldman Sachs, Credit Suisse and Deutsche Bank also see Infineon as an outperformer.

    The mountain of government debt is growing, and the central banks' hands are tied despite rising inflation rates. By investing in gold mining stocks, investors can protect themselves from demonetization. The junior gold Company Sierra Grande Minerals is still in its infancy and has significant growth potential with non-negligible risk. Xiaomi and Infineon are Buy candidates.

    Barrick Gold, Defiance Silver, and First Majestic Silver - Precious metals in focus after the fall of the debt ceiling

    • Mining
    • Silver
    • Gold
    • PreciousMetals

    The US has decided to suspend its debt ceiling until 2025. The markets reacted happily to this news and marked new highs for the year. But is this decision really a good thing? It took the US over 200 years to reach USD 2 trillion in debt. Now it will add 2 trillion every 18 months. With higher interest rates, refinancing this debt could lead to a financial crisis. Will fiat money still be worth much then? Chances are good that the price of gold and silver will be driven up further in this way. We, therefore, take a look at three gold and silver companies.

    Real estate was the Germans' favourite asset class for years - until the interest rate hammer came. In the meantime, prices for many residential properties have fallen back. There was simply hardly any demand left. Here we explain why the shares of real estate companies are still under pressure and which asset class could soon overtake real estate.

    ThyssenKrupp, Orestone Mining, Nevada Copper - Optimistic about the future

    Overall, copper is an indispensable part of the green transformation due to its excellent electrical conductivity, corrosion resistance and reliability. It enables the efficient use of renewable energies, promotes electromobility and supports sustainable infrastructure development. Due to recession fears, the base price corrected strongly in recent months. In the long term, copper should make a renewed attempt to reach new highs due to high demand and too little supply.
