NEL ASA, Desert Gold, Barrick Gold: Risk Check on Trendy Stocks

The Corona pandemic has led to a real boom in online brokers. More and more people are managing their own money and investing in stocks from their smartphones. What is welcomed, quickly leads to disillusionment for many high-flyers: when trend stocks are bought at an exorbitant price and then sold off again in panic during price corrections. As a rule, the profit on the stock market lies in the purchase. Who enters favorably and gives a share time, can pursue its strategy entirely objectively? Neither buying panic nor the threat of a setback then weighs on the investor's psyche. Nevertheless, shares like those of hydrogen pioneer NEL are still in high demand.

NEL ASA: Why caution is advisable

There is no question that the Norwegian Company is exciting. Anyone with solutions around hydrogen at the ready these days is rightly a trending stock. But what NEL's stock has been accomplishing for several months now is breathtaking for investors looking to lock in returns quietly. Although the stock has gained more than 200% over a one-year period, this development has also been accompanied by many frantic price jumps. NEL reached the EUR 2.90 mark around the turn of the year twice and came under selling pressure in this price zone.

At the beginning of the week, rumors about a possible new large order from the Netherlands created a buying mood - the fact that profit-taking can occur after such news seems to be ignored by many investors who are gripped by the gold rush for hydrogen shares. Investors should exercise caution with the NEL share in the short term given the dynamic price development and the increased volatility.

Desert Gold: The summer hit of 2020 is grooving again

Desert Gold's stock shows that there are still trend stocks to buy near historic lows these days. The Company is developing a promising project in Mali, Africa's fourth-largest gold producer, which has unearthed good drill results in recent months. The property is located in the middle of a mining region where B2Gold, Barrick Gold and AngloGold Ashanti, among others, operate mines. Desert Gold says it has the most extensive contiguous land package in the region. In Desert Gold's view, the chances are good that mineralization will continue up to the already producing mines. The Company would then be a potential takeover candidate.

In December 2020, Desert started a new drilling program that will initially cover 20,000 meters and can be expanded to double that volume if necessary. Desert Gold expects the drilling to provide closer information about its project and has already announced a continuous news flow throughout 2021. After the share reached its previous performance high in Germany of over EUR 0.23 in August 2020 and raised fresh capital in late summer, the share went into reverse and at times even sank to below EUR 0.10.

In the course of the rising gold prices at the beginning of the year, however, first investors rediscovered the value and gave the share a good success. Given the already financed drilling program and the general conditions around gold, the share could be a promising latecomer - especially in the mirror of hype shares like NEL and Co.

Barrick Gold: Takeover congestion weighs on established gold producers

However, investors should not disregard the fact that Desert Gold, with a market capitalization of around EUR 16 million, is anything but a long-established Company and must be considered speculative. Therefore, those who like it more conservative can also take a closer look at the shares of the largest gold producer Barrick Gold. While investors in Desert Gold focus on two properties under development (the Company has optioned one project), Barrick Gold offers a colorful bouquet of gold mines worldwide. Barrick therefore benefits directly from rising gold prices. Nevertheless, the share price has only risen by around 14% over the past year.

Although the gold giants' figures have improved in recent months and the gold price has brought Barrick new attention, the Company is suffering from an investment backlog. While mines are pulling gold out of the ground daily, the acquisition business has come to a virtual standstill in the wake of the pandemic. However, major producers are relying on replacing reserves and looking for new potential projects. This dilemma also weighs on the share price, as Barrick Gold has been living off its substance for some time. Moreover, buying new projects after the end of the pandemic could be expensive - other companies in the sector are also on the lookout for promising projects. Producer Kinross Gold already announced in the fall that these could well be in West Africa. Desert Gold may then join the big players.

NIO, NewPeak Metals, Barrick Gold - The calm before the storm!

  • Gold

The stock indices are still in a celebratory mood. Both the DAX and the Dow Jones benchmark index again reached historic highs last week. In addition to all the euphoria, there was the successful debut of the crypto exchange Coinbase, which also helped Bitcoin, Etherum & Co to achieve new all-time highs. Meanwhile, the first signs of life came from the precious metals for the first time in months. Gold was able to stop its losing trend since the beginning of the year and should become interesting again due to the fundamental data. One can profit from the favorable entry opportunities!

Plug Power, Desert Gold, Bayer - Shares with opportunities despite all-time highs?

  • Gold

Almost all indices are near their all-time highs. No wonder, given the expansive monetary policy and the associated inflation expectations. Commodity prices, in particular, are seeing a sharp rise. Thursday, gold was able to break the resistance area at USD 1,750. Despite this positive environment, however, some stocks are far from their all-time high. We will take a closer look at these today.

Coinbase, Plug Power, NSJ Gold Corp. - Bitcoin, inflation, gold - triple whammy!

  • Gold

The crypto craze has erupted. Nothing is currently causing as much of a stir as cryptocurrencies, their trading platforms and all the service companies surrounding them. Never before have there been such price surges in associated assets in such a short period. There is widespread talk of the crypto world as a means to combat inflation and provide a new payment system. Let's be honest: a currency that fluctuates by more than 500% every six months is hardly suitable for mapping the payment flows of millions of transactions in the goods sector. A Bitcoin that cost EUR 10,000 in the summer of 2020 has reached prices of over EUR 50,000 today. How should one deal with this alleged "currency" - Impossible, as Bitcoin itself is probably inflationary!
