Kinross Gold, Triumph Gold, Yamana Gold - the beginning of a rally

  • Gold

The global economy is facing major challenges as the outbreak of the current corona virus disrupts supply chains in manufacturing and causes a collapse in demand for many products and services. Stock market professionals are reminded of 2008, when the US bank Lehman Brothers went bankrupt in the context of the subprime crisis and Hypo Real Estate in Germany had to be state-owned in order to avert the total collapse of the global economy.

The opportunity of gold stocks in 2020

In 2008, when investors around the world panicked and sent stock markets into a downward spiral, they also temporarily pulled out of gold company stocks. As a result, the share prices of the major gold companies also went into decline. Compared to other industries, however, share prices of the well-known companies working with gold recovered quickly. In 2020 everything is a little different, as the value of most gold companies has been trading at a low level for several years.

The price of the precious metal increased

In connection with the current corona crisis, there has so far been no significant price capers among the large gold companies. The price of a troy ounce of gold has risen since last summer from under USD 1,300.00 by more than 30% to now almost USD 1,700.00. Based on this situation, it can be assumed that shares of gold companies will be able to continue to trade at a stable price of the precious metal. The large companies such as Kinross Gold with a market value of CAD 9.3 billion and Yamana Gold with a market value of CAD 5.4 billion are much demanded by investors.

Triumph Gold as takeover target

Investors wishing to enter the market at an earlier stage of value creation usually invest in exploration companies. The Canadian company Triumph Gold explores and develops its own properties in the Yukon. The company already has Newmont on board as a major shareholder with a 9% stake. The exit strategy of investors in Explorer is usually a takeover by a producer - as soon as enough data on gold reserves is available. Triumph Gold's share price is still at a low level, but this also represents an opportunity. The company's most recent market value was CAD 19.0 million.


Conflict of interest & risk note

In accordance with §34b WpHG we would like to point out that Apaton Finance GmbH as well as partners, authors or employees of Apaton Finance GmbH may hold shares in the aforementioned companies and that there may therefore be a conflict of interest. Further details can be found in our Conflict of Interest & Risk Disclosure.

Barrick Gold, Desert Gold Ventures, Yamana Gold - all eyes on gold

  • Gold

The decade without recessions in Canada, Germany and the USA was hardly over when a mixture of different problems and shocks hit the people, politics and economy. The price of WTI oil collapsed to a historic low of around USD 20.00 per barrel, the US dollar gained dramatically in strength and the corona virus caused curfews, disruptions in supply chains and a slump in demand. The central banks in North America and Europe are taking measures to increase liquidity and the Trump Administration is determined to help citizens with 'helicopter money'.

Barrick, First Majestic, Osino Resources, Scottie Resources - preparing for helicopter money

  • Gold

In the 1960s, the Nobel Prize winner Milton Friedman, an influential economist in the USA, studied various models of monetary policy. One of the models of how the Federal Reserve can boost consumption and achieve its inflation targets while preventing deflation would be by issuing cash to the population on a one-time basis. In his example, Friedman describes that a helicopter would drop USD 1,000 banknotes over a community for consumption purposes. This model led to the term 'helicopter money'. After the reduction of interest rates and quantitative easing, the USA will soon provide its citizens with checks to keep the economy going. All drastic measures within a month.

  • Gold

The West of Africa is rich in raw materials. Well-known companies are present in Senegal and Mali and are exploring for gold deposits there. In 2018, Mali produced the fourth largest quantity of gold in all of Africa, with more than 2 million ounces. In addition to producers, exploration companies are also active there and are exploring the geology through appropriate drilling. Usually, the aim of these often smaller companies is to explore a portfolio of areas for deposits in order to subsequently sell them to producers if successful. A perfect environment for mergers and acquisitions.
