Newmont, Triumph Gold, Victoria Gold - Precious metals belong in the portfolio

  • Gold

The financial crisis in 2008 and the current corona crisis differ fundamentally in the assessment of the economic aspects. Central banks and politicians have maintained growth and productivity by increasing the money supply in order to avert a global economic standstill in connection with the Lehman bankruptcy and its aftermath. At that time, the freshly printed money was used to invest, create something and create value. The current measures are about four times as high and the global economy is at a standstill - it is even in recession. From a social point of view, the measures to maintain social peace are appropriate, but when it comes to wealth creation, they resemble a catastrophe. There is a need for action.

Gold doesn't grow back

The precious metal gold is generally mined in an expensive process. In the first phase, deposits must be discovered through exploration. The discovery in itself is not enough to start production. The next step is to find out how large the deposits are. Exploration is risky and costly, but it is also the phase of value creation, where in relative terms, a high return on investment is possible. Once an economically viable amount of gold has been discovered, the development phase can begin, followed by production.

Next acquisition target in the Yukon?

Triumph Gold is a Canadian company focused on the exploration of its own projects in the Yukon. The Freegold Mountain project is located along a main road that is open to traffic year-round and therefore access is guaranteed. Drilling programs and discoveries continue to expand the amount of gold deposits. At a critical mass of proven gold and a certain price per ounce, a takeover by a producer is likely. Newmont already holds 18% of Triumph Gold and thus has a foot in the door.

Canada's newest gold mine

Victoria Gold is also located in the Yukon and has been producing at the Eagle Gold Mine since September 2019, after more than ten years of planning. At full capacity, an annual production volume of 210,000 ounces per year is to be achieved. The cost per ounce is estimated at USD 774.00, the margin is currently almost USD 1,000.00 per ounce. Total reserves of 3.3 million ounces have been determined, which is sufficient for a mining period of eleven years.

Gold offers security for assets

Considering that money is put into circulation without a deposited value, gold offers one of few ways to secure existing assets. Cash under the pillow or in the bank account can soon become a disadvantage in terms of purchasing power. The easiest way for investors to park their assets in shares of gold companies. The market value of Triumph Gold is CAD 23 million, Victoria Gold is valued at CAD 813 million and Newmont's market capitalization was recently over CAD 63 billion.

Barrick Gold, Blackrock Gold, Osino Resources: buy when weak?

  • Gold

The price of gold and silver has come under pressure in the past few days and so too has the price of the shares of the companies involved in the creation of value for precious metals. The fear of another lockdown in connection with the Corona pandemic seems to be worrying the markets. Against this backdrop the central banks and governments continue to support the economy with measures. The correction in precious metals may now be an opportunity to enter, because when the presses are running at full speed, the oldest currency in the world is usually a safe haven.

BHP Group, Newcrest Mining, SolGold: Getting bogged down or putting all your eggs in one basket

  • Gold

When it comes to investing in commodity companies, the BHP Group is a household name. The British company is active worldwide, mining coal, iron ore, copper and other commodities and has long been considered a solid dividend earner. But recently the company has disappointed: Special effects put pressure on profits, unrest in Chile made life difficult for BHP and the Corona pandemic also left its mark: the bottom line at the end of the financial year at the end of June was a profit of no less than EUR 6.75 billion. While the mood among investors was not particularly good, BHP cut its dividend by around ten percent, thus spoiling shareholders’ sentiment even further. On a year-on-year basis, the share price fell by around 1.4%. In view of the good performance of copper following the outbreak of the pandemic, this is too little for many investors.

B2Gold, Barrick Gold, Desert Gold: Did Warren Buffett bet on the right horse?

  • Gold

The price of gold has stabilized above the USD 1,900.00 per troy ounce mark in recent weeks. Against the background that the Corona Pandemic is not slowing down and that a second wave is becoming measurable in many places, the actions taken by governments and central banks are continuing cheerfully, thus ensuring further demand for the world's oldest currency. Those who want to protect their assets are probably best off buying shares in a gold company like Warren Buffett, and for those who can't decide, there is also a solution.
