After such an extended bull market as we have experienced in the last 3 years, it is difficult for some investors to separate the wheat from the chaff. There are long-term fundamental trends, so-called megatrends such as digitalization or e-mobility, and currently also mining. Here, the medium-term parameters coincide with critical economic trends. But then there are also short-term, so-called hyped trends about which it can be argued how long they will last. While crypto attracts additional money, the hydrogen hype is already breaking off - and again, an important criterion comes to light: Timing!

    Newmont Corp - Excitement ahead of first-quarter numbers

    The world's largest gold miner Newmont Mining is expected to report its Q1 numbers in pre-market today. Another set of record results are expected, despite the COVID constraints. The gold miner has already beaten analyst estimates in two of the last four quarters, and in the most recent quarter, Newmont posted a profit surprise of a whopping 11.6%.

    As a result, the Company's first-quarter results are expected to reflect the benefits of higher gold prices year-on-year. Yesterday, the payout was announced: the gold producer will pay a quarterly dividend of 55 US cents per share to its shareholders, bringing the current dividend yield to about 3.4%.

    We are curious to see what Newmont will report, as the stock has risen sharply again recently, even though its industry rivals were in correction mode. At the end of February, a low of EUR 45 was reached. Yesterday the stock was back at EUR 53. The high dates from May 2020 at EUR 64.8.

    Sibanye-Stillwater - Strong figures, big ambitions

    While 2021 looks like a solid year for precious metals miner Sibanye-Stillwater aside from COVID, managing director and CEO Neal Froneman has stressed that the Company remains on the lookout for value-enhancing merger and acquisition transactions. After many years of restructuring, the balance sheet is good, and the equity ratio is strong again.

    At the World Gold Forum, Sibanye most recently announced it would continue to adhere to its dividend policy; potential acquisitions do not counter this point. The payout reached a total of ZAR 720 million in 2020, with free cash flow increasing in parallel to ZAR 1.2 billion. This year, Sibanye is targeting a 4% to 5% return.

    There are now essentially no operational problems at Sibanye after the many strikes in 2020. The Company gained significantly in 2020, and one can expect the positive story to continue in 2021. According to management, gold prices are expected to increase considerably over the next few years, and the other metals from Sibanye's mines are also enjoying strong demand. The current price for the 4E basket (platinum, palladium, rhodium and gold) is around ZAR 60,000, representing a 50% increase over prices in the second half of 2020. Another area Sibanye has been exploring is battery metals, with the miner's recent investment in the European Keliber lithium project. Sibanye shares are currently consolidating at high levels, with prices below EUR 4 tempting investors to enter. A significant revaluation should be in store by 2025.

    Troilus Gold - Best location in the middle of Quebec

    In the best location of Quebec is another very prospective precious metals project, owned since 2017 by the Canadian Troilus Gold Corp. So far, more than 80,000 meters have been drilled. The indicated gold quantity reached 4.96 million ounces of gold in 2020; another 3.15 million ounces can be inferred. The former Troilus mine, located northeast of the Val-d'Or district of Quebec, produced a full 2 million ounces of gold and nearly 70,000 tonnes of copper between 1996 and 2010; it is located in one of the most favorable mining jurisdictions in the world.

    The Troilus property was acquired in 2017 after extensive due diligence, and since then, indicated mineral resources have increased by 142% and inferred mineral resources by as much as 350%. The average gold grade is 0.84 to 0.87 grams per tonne. With many years of open-pit mining, the mine has a well-established infrastructure, including an extensive road network, a nearby substation with access to carbon-neutral hydroelectric power, a permitted tailings facility and an operating water treatment plant.

    As a historical and future mine site, the Troilus site features a unique inventory of sustainable points toward environmental protection. With modern technology, Troilus is confident of minimizing the negative impact of a mine operation on the environment. That includes water protection as well as climate change and species protection in flora & fauna. The Troilus share stands at CAD 1.08 and thus a market capitalization of approx. CAD 140 million. The price targets of well-known research houses are, on average, CAD 3.84. The next gold pickup will not leave the stock at this level, as the project is one of the best in Canada.

    Nel ASA - This can still go wrong

    Another chart look at the Nel ASA share. After liberation from this year's sell-off, which stopped at around EUR 2.10, the Nel share launched a new bullish attempt in the direction of EUR 2.60. If this breakout is now to work, it must go with high turnover through the EUR 2.70-2.85 zone. A break of the recent momentum, on the other hand, would induce a renewed sell-off towards EUR 2.10 and lower. After all, the stock has put a 3-year super rally of plus 700% behind it. Almost every investor should be sitting on lush gains.

    We highlighted hydrogen shares very well on the screen when the first correction thrusts broke over the industry in the middle of January. Then came the automotive industry's collective vote to favor battery technology - a slap in the face for hydrogen supporters. Since neither technology can become a blockbuster, investors should continue to be very selective with investments in the H2 sector. Set tight stop-loss limits to protect profits.

    Barrick Gold, Desert Gold, Newmont - Golden times

    • Gold

    The situation with gold is more than paradoxical at the moment. On the one hand, the Ukraine war is raging with the threat of spreading to other countries. On top of that, inflation rates are jumping to levels the world has not seen in more than 30 years. As the icing on the cake, the Zero-Covid lockdowns in China are hampering supply chains that are already broken. Gold should therefore explode. However, the reality is different. The precious yellow metal is currently struggling to reach the USD 1,800 per ounce mark. However, the crisis currency is likely to prevail in the long term and pave its way above new highs.

    BioNTech, BYD and Desert Gold: Shares for the rebound

    • Gold
    • Electromobility
    • Biotechnology

    Is the rebound coming? After the heavy price losses of recent days and weeks, the market seems ripe for a countermovement. However, this would require a little more volume in the market. But then, especially companies that have not disappointed operationally should profit. BioNTech, for example, belongs to this group. The Company has published convincing figures, and analysts see up to 50% price potential. BYD's share price should also pick up speed again. Finally, the rapid shift to electric pureplay seems to be succeeding and HSBC has raised the price target. Gold was not a safe haven in the current correction. But it is worth looking at bombed-out stocks here as well. Desert Gold Ventures is one of them. The explorer has started a new drill program and secured financing.

    Barrick Gold, Edgemont Gold, Rio Tinto - Are gold stocks taking off again?

    • Gold

    With the start of the Ukraine crisis, the gold price skyrocketed, but since March 8, we find ourselves in a consolidation. The 200-day line is currently holding, and it could go up again from here. But let's look at the reasons for the weakness in the gold price. On the one hand, there is the strong dollar, which naturally puts pressure on the gold price, and on the other hand, bond yields in the US are climbing again. After the FED announced on May 4 that it would not raise interest rates by more than 0.5 percentage points, which was originally feared, the gold price jumped again. Demand for physical gold remains high. We look at three companies in the gold sector.
