Newmont, Triumph Gold, Barrick Gold: This development makes gold interesting again

Gold has been in the shadows for months. Now the precious metal could start to shine again - the reason: Asia is demanding gold on a massive scale. In March, India imported a whopping 153 tons of gold, which is more than it has done in years. China is also jumping back on the gold bandwagon. The People's Bank of China (PBOC) is now allowing imports of gold again. Within the next few months, 150 tons of gold alone will be imported into China. For the gold price and corresponding shares, this could be the starting signal.

    Newmont: Where is the fantasy?

    When it comes to gold shares, investors first think of the big companies like Barrick or Newmont. The latter Company convinced in the past fiscal year and increased sales by about one-fifth. Although profits fell due to special effects, the business was enough to raise the quarterly dividend by a whopping 60%. Newmont mines about 80% gold and slightly less than 20% copper. Both metals were in high demand in 2020. While gold has weakened a bit recently, the copper rally at first glance caused joy among Newmont shareholders.

    However, this mixture of factors did not help the share: On a one-year horizon, the value is trending sideways with a slight downward tendency. The reason for this could be the lack of imagination surrounding the share. Dividends may please many a conservative investor, but they are not enough to paint a positive picture for the future. Here, Newmont lacks fresh, new projects.

    Triumph Gold: Dynamic value with moderate valuation

    One of those projects could be Triumph Gold's Freegold Mountain project in Canada's Yukon. Newmont is already a shareholder in Triumph Gold and operates its Coffee Creek project nearby. Even an important road to Newmont runs through Triumph's territory. Recently, Triumph additionally secured the Big Creek property, which is expected to host gold and copper. In the coming weeks, drilling will help to examine the properties in more detail and explore the potential.

    In the winter, Triumph Gold's management was relaxed and emphasized that they have sufficient funds in their coffers for the upcoming exploration work. With the new Big Creek project, the Company has another chance to convince the market with positive drill results. In an environment in which gold is stabilizing and, especially in Asia, the precious metal is again more strongly relied on, the shares of Triumph Gold could become interesting. In terms of the chart, the value is still at the bottom. As soon as good drill results meet a better environment for gold, the share should be more in demand again. Those who can already position themselves strategically today and have a few weeks to months should look at the value.

    Barrick Gold: 17% loss in one year

    Another company that could take Triumph Gold's promising projects into production is Barrick Gold. Arguably the best-known gold stock, most of its value is dependent on the precious metal, with only a small percentage accounted for by copper. Last year, Barrick considered how to give its share price a bit of a boost and thought aloud about increasing its exposure around copper. Projects that profitably unearth both the precious and industrial metal would be ideal for Barrick.

    Barrick's stock is not a profit maker - on a one-year view, the stock lost about 17% despite the gold bull market. In comparison, Triumph Gold's annual loss of around 20% seems marginal - after all, it is a more dynamic stock, which also nearly doubled in the past year within a very short period. Given the dwindling reserves at established producers and the associated pressure to act, even cautious investors should not hastily dismiss stocks like Triumph as too speculative. Valuations have come down significantly in recent months and the stage as a project developer offers the opportunity for dynamic development. Thus, even smaller investments can make a noteworthy contribution at the portfolio level.

    Barrick Gold, Globex Mining, BP - Commodities In the spotlight: Supercycle started?

    • Mining

    • Oil
    • Gas

    Global demand for commodities is reaching new heights, partly driven by increasing geopolitical tensions. The exchange of attacks between Iran and Israel is a case in point. This conflict, deeply rooted in religious and political differences, continues to escalate and could have far-reaching consequences for international stability and commodity markets. With this latest escalation of the Middle East conflict, security aspects in the global competition for important resources such as gold, silver and copper are taking center stage. China is demonstrating its hunger for resources. However, the price of oil has also risen recently. There has long been talk of a commodity supercycle. Perhaps it has now finally begun. Where should one invest now?

    Since the bombing of Israel by Iran, the clocks are ticking differently in the Middle East. The next stage of escalation has been reached. If Israel now uses the right to defense as an opportunity to initiate something bigger, it is here: the conflagration. Gold and silver are shining as safe-haven currencies and pulling long-neglected commodity shares through the roof. Now is the time to keep the sails in the wind and ride the long-awaited upward momentum. In the energy transition, strategically safer jurisdictions that can safely serve the growing hunger for commodities are still in demand. We highlight a few opportunities.

    The cannons are thundering, and gold and silver remain in demand! Barrick, Newmont, Desert Gold and SMT Scharf in focus

    The overnight attack by Iran on Israel underscores the current geopolitical uncertainty. Regardless of whether there is further escalation in the Middle East, the world has already changed dramatically since February 2022. This includes shifts in investor behavior. Until the first quarter of 2024, shares in the artificial intelligence and high-tech sectors were bullish; now, defense stocks and precious metals are on the agenda. After decades of disarmament, NATO, in particular, is now facing a decade of rearmament, and private investors are expressing their restraint in consumption by increasing their focus on private security. This is reflected in the increased purchases of gold and silver. For years, precious metals have been stable guarantors of the daily dwindling purchasing power. We believe that the new valuation cycle in the commodities sector is only just beginning, which is why we are examining favorable entry opportunities.
