Nornickel, Newcrest Mining, Triumph Gold: Which stock benefits from rising gold prices?

While the price of gold is slowly but surely picking up speed again, many investors are asking themselves with which share they will best profit, from rising precious metal prices. Many investors initially think of stocks such as Rio Tinto or BHP Billiton - but these companies are virtually not involved in the mining of precious metals. To profit from rising prices, investors must take a closer look. At first glance, Nornickel's stock seems to promise more of an investment in a producer of industrial metals. Still, the company also has many precious metals on offer - platinum and palladium account for more than 40% of the commodities produced. More critical are nickel and copper with a share of almost 50%. Gold and silver are only by-products.

"[...] We quickly learned that the tailings are high-grade, often as high as 20 grams of gold per tonne; because they are produced by artisanal miners, local miners who use outdated technology for gold production. [...]" Ryan Jackson, CEO, Newlox Gold Ventures Corp.

About the author


Nornickel: Environmental disaster impacts

Even before the crisis, analysts assessed Nornickel as being solidly positioned. However, the stock has mostly escaped the commodity boom since the outbreak of the pandemic: On a one-year horizon, investing in Nornickel has yielded zero return. Among other things, an environmental scandal in Siberia has burdened the share. A tank of Nornickel spilt 21,000 tons of diesel and threatened a nature reserve. Observers even compared the incident with the 1989 accident of the oil tanker Exxon Valdez, and even Russian President Putin intervened and publicly criticized regional authorities and company management.

Despite the wide range of strategic industrial and precious metals on offer, Nornickel's stock does not currently appear to be the right choice for investors who want to profit from the precious metal boom. Although platinum and palladium are also climbing, the metals appear to be too dependent on demand from the starving automotive industry.

Newcrest Mining: Good fundamentals, scarce stock

The situation at the Australian mining company, Newcrest Mining, is more straightforward. The company produces around 85% gold. Copper plays only a minor role. Thus the share qualifies itself from the outset as a suitable precious metal investment. Even before the pandemic, Newcrest was committed to the expansion and pursued the goal of acquiring promising projects. Newcrest also attaches great importance to the exploration of new deposits. In the first half of the year, for example, Newcrest succeeded in identifying new deposits at the Red Cris Mine in Canada.

However, this good news has not been rewarded by the stock market: On a one-year horizon, the stock lost 12.8% - Newcrest Mining's shareholders did not benefit from the recent precious metal boom. Only short-term investors with the right hand could make a quick profit between March and August. Given the company's solid fundamentals and, in particular, its low costs, the stock seems to be well prepared for further losses.

Triumph Gold: Interesting shareholders

On a one-year horizon, even Triumph Gold's stock failed to convince all investors and posted a loss of around 12%. The company is exploring for gold and copper in a 200 km² area in the so-called Dawson Range, in the Canadian district of Yukon. The company recently completed the search for mineralization near the surface and is set to release more detailed results in the coming weeks.

Jesse Halle, Triumph's exploration manager, is already confident that the results will reveal the new potential for the project. These results are to be explored in more detail from 2021.

Thanks to successful financing round, this exploration program is already secured - shareholders do not need to fear any further capital measures. In the past, big names have participated in financing rounds: Currently, Newmont Mining and other professional investors are among the shareholders, in addition to the Zijn Mining Fund. The company has a current market value of only EUR 23 million.

Smallcaps with more imagination

While stocks such as Nornickel or Newcrest Mining score with mature business models and a high degree of transparency, stocks such as Triumph Gold offer investors a high degree of imagination. This is due to the early stage of exploration activity - virtually every report from the company can trigger significant market reactions. This can make even small investments promising in the long term. For many larger companies, however, small improvements and achievements are often less critical.

Steinhoff International, Blackrock Gold, Halo Labs - Watch out: Something is up with these penny stocks!

  • Gold

Stocks below the 1 dollar or euro mark, so-called penny stocks, are often sweepingly pigeonholed. Of course, there are some ailing companies or bankruptcy candidates among the penny stocks. When assessing the risk structure, it is also helpful to look at the nominal value. If this is only cents or fractions of cents anyway, then it is relatively "normal" that many companies are quoted in cents range. For investors and traders, however, the commitment in penny stocks has a decisive positive side effect. The mere fact that the share certificates are visually cheap makes them easier to buy, which increases trading volume and price movements. Thus, information that has not yet been adequately understood by the broad market and incorporated into the price is an excellent opportunity to make money. We present three penny stocks that should continue to gain in the near future.

Plug Power, Osino Resources, SAP - these values are being raised!

  • Gold

At the moment, events are unfolding both nationally and on the global stage. As expected, the lockdown was extended until mid-February, but thankfully we were spared the feared mega-lockdown. After a four-year presidency, Donald Trump officially said goodbye and left the White House, at least temporarily. Jack Ma came back after several weeks of abstinence and addressed his fan community in a video. As a result, Alibaba's stock market value rose by a whopping USD 63 billion. Values are currently being raised at other companies as well.

Lenovo, Triumph Gold, K+S: Are the stragglers jumping now?

  • Gold

Looking at the stock market today, one sees the major indexes at record highs and stocks, like Tesla and Ballard Power, far from anything that can be reasoned with. The current situation is a deterrent to many investors. But that's a mistake. Instead of staying completely out of the market, it's worth taking a look at stragglers. These still exist today. Many of these stragglers are indirectly benefiting from strong major trends and could be on the verge of a revaluation. Three of these representatives are Lenovo, Triumph Gold and even K+S.
