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.

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.

Daimler, Theta Gold Mines, Barrick Gold: Long-term opportunities lurk here

  • Gold

Raw materials and certain primary products are in short supply. The automotive industry is a good example of this. Here, the post-Corona boom is not picking up speed because necessary semiconductors are not available. In some cases, companies from the automotive sector have already concluded their own contracts with chip manufacturers to lift the emergency. We show whether there are nevertheless winners in the auto industry and explain the developments for which the scarcity of chips and other preliminary products could have a signal effect.

Carnival, Triumph Gold, TUI - It is starting again!

  • Gold

Since the beginning of July, the cruise ships are now sailing again. AIDA already has 5 ships on the water again, and Carnival plans to bring a capacity of 75% back onto the water in the fall. These are the plans as of today. However, concerns about the pandemic development are also spreading because the travel industry is still very tense about the infection situation in the fall. A rampant spread of various mutations caused by summer tourism is expected for the winter. The good price-performance of various travel providers in the second quarter has also gone into reverse gear again. We take a closer look.

  • Gold

When the markets shake out, it can not hurt to have a little gold in the portfolio. Whether physically or in the form of shares is a matter of taste. If you are more speculative, you should look for young exploration companies. The big picture speaks in favor of rising prices for the precious metal in the medium term. We show you three stocks that can help you profit from a rising gold price. Who is winning the race?
