MAS Gold, Barrick Gold, Yamana Gold - Go for gold!

If you look at the big picture, several aspects favor a medium-term increase in the price of gold. It is a combination of a low-interest rate environment, rising inflation and crisis currency in volatile stock market times. In addition, the global economic recovery is increasing the demand for gold. As the past has shown, the gold price can perform strongly even when nominal yields rise if inflation rates climb faster than interest rates. We believe this scenario is very realistic. Thus, these stocks should benefit.

About the author


MAS Gold - When will the countermovement come?

The Company is primarily focused on gold exploration in Saskatchewan. The focus is on the La Ronge South gold joint venture and exploration of the Greywacke, Preview Lake and North Lake properties. The Greywacke property is located approximately 80 kilometers northeast of La Ronge, with a total area of 5,786 hectares.

The Company also owns interests in Henry Lake and Little Deer Lake. The La Ronge Gold Belt has geology similar to rich gold mining areas in West Africa. MAS Gold is pursuing a hub-and-spoke model. That means all of the smaller projects will be connected to a central processing plant.

The Preview Lake property covers an area of 10,041 hectares. The North Lake gold deposit is located about five kilometers north of Point Prospect and about 24 kilometers south of Golden Band's abandoned Roy Lloyd mine. The Company's goal is to report a resource estimate of 1 million ounces of gold soon.

MAS Gold, which recently completed a mini-capital increase of just under CAD 40,000, is valued at about CAD 16 million. Project progress and rising precious metal prices should give the shares a tailwind in the medium term. The share has more than halved since the course high in 2021.

Barrick Gold - Strong position

Barrick benefits from higher gold prices and production volumes. The group reports high profits and lets its shareholders benefit with a special dividend. Analysts forecast high net cash balances in the coming fiscal years. As the guidance for 2021 shows, production is expected to increase noticeably in the year's second half. The multi-year outlook of the Canadians is valued at around 4.7 million ounces of gold p.a. Thus, the gold price level is a decisive factor.

The bottom line is that the current price level of the Barrick share is an attractive entry opportunity for long-term oriented investors. First and foremost, it is the plausible assumption of a rising gold price. The Canadians also generate just under 10% of sales from copper production. The industrial metal price should have a margin-increasing effect for the Company due to strong demand from the electromobility sector. In addition, Barrick has sufficient financial resources for acquisitions. The stock has catch-up potential compared to the industry and the most prominent player Newmont. On average, analysts formulate a price target of CAD 35 for the title.

Yamana Gold - Analysts: 63% upside potential!

The Canadian precious metals producer has gold and silver production, exploration properties and land positions across the Americas. Its properties include Canadian Malartic, Jacobina, Cerro Moro, El Penon, Minera Florida, Wasamac and Camflo. Soon, the Company will break the sound barrier of producing 1 million ounces of gold annually. Most of the production growth is expected to come from the advanced Wasamac project.

The underground mine is located west of Canada's Malartic mine and has a resource estimate of 1.9 million ounces of gold on a proven and probable basis at a grade of 2.56 g/t. Production in the first four years is estimated at 200,000 ounces of gold and then averages 169,000 ounces of gold for the remainder of the mine's life, which is estimated to be 15 years in total.

The fundamentals favor the shares of the Company, which is currently valued at CAD 4.2 billion. The Canadians are valued at about 2.3 times sales for 2021 as well as 2022. According to analyst consensus, the 2022 P/E ratio is currently 12. The experts predominantly recommend buying the stock and see an upside potential of 63%.


Tangible assets offer inflation protection. Even if interest rates should rise, past periods have shown that the precious metal can gain in such an environment if inflation rises more than interest rates. Thus, the price of gold should rise in the medium term, which should benefit gold producers such as Barrick and Yamana. Those who like it a bit more speculative can bet on a leveraged gold price increase with exploration companies like MAS Gold.

MAS Gold, K+S, Klöckner & Co. - For fans of real assets!

  • Gold

Inflation has certainly not yet reached its peak. The scenario of only a short phase of major losses in purchasing power - according to the position of the central banks - must be doubted anyway. Therefore, forward-looking investors should invest in tangible assets such as stocks, bonds or commodities. Anyone thinking of building up or expanding a commodities portfolio should take a closer look at the following stocks. Who is winning the race?

Gazprom, Tembo Gold, Nvidia - Inflation and rare goods

  • Gold

Inflation has jumped not only in the USA but also in Germany. With an inflation rate of 4.5% in October, we now have the highest value in Germany in almost three decades. One driver of monetary devaluation is the cost of energy, which has become significantly more expensive, especially in the past year. While the oil price was still in negative territory at the beginning of the pandemic, it was recently quoted above USD 80. The chip shortage can be observed in the automotive industry, but graphics cards are also rare and are traded at a significant premium to the recommended retail price. Graphics cards are used for mining cryptocurrencies. It seems that bitcoin is increasingly becoming a value protection asset and competes with gold, the number one inflation protection.

Is it Christmas again? History is currently repeating itself: incidences are rising, Austria is going into lockdown, and German investors are gearing up for a form of contemplation that no one had expected after the vaccination successes in the summer. But life with a home office and delivery services also has advantages for passionate investors: There is plenty of time to take care of one's finances. Investors can profit since the market does not yet attach much importance to the dangers of inflation and the major central banks' ignorance of inflation. We present three stocks for long home office days.
