For many shares, the market correction offers the opportunity to add quality to the portfolio at a more favorable level in the long term. Even if the low has probably not yet been reached, long-term anti-cyclical entry opportunities are currently available. The gold price entered a correction after reaching new highs in August 2020, when prices of over USD 2,060 per ounce were paid. Although the chart-technical picture for the gold price is not yet compelling, the current prices should at least be used to build initial positions. Fundamentally, the prospects for the precious yellow metal are already better than ever.

    Tembo Gold - With drive into the new year

    The course for the exploration company Tembo Gold was set in the right direction twice last year. On the one hand, after a total of seven years of hiatus, it was important that the drilling programs started again and that there was a chance for a rebound. The highly prospective Tembo gold project is strategically located in the Lake Victoria goldfield in Tanzania next to one of the largest high-grade gold deposits in the world, Barrick Gold Corp.'s Bulyanhulu mine, with more than 20 million ounces of gold mined or contained to date. Due to the previous government, the Tanzanian mining industry experienced a slump and investment flight.

    Now that a new, mining-friendly government is in power, investment from foreign investors is rolling again, and Tembo Gold also started a 7,000m drilling program in the fourth quarter, following up on previous drilling totaling 50,000m. Prior to the shutdown for maintenance and servicing, the deposit size was 110 sq km, which has now been expanded to 174 sq km, and drill targets have also been significantly expanded.

    The mining industry received a boost in mid-December with the news that the second-largest gold producer, Barrick Gold, will initially acquire 6 licenses directly adjacent to Barrick's world-class Bulyanhulu mine in Tanzania from Tembo Gold for USD 6 million.

    In addition, Barrick will become a shareholder of Tembo. Upon signing the purchase agreement, Barrick's subsidiary Bulyanhulu Gold Mine Limited agreed to subscribe for common shares of Tembo in a private placement at a price of CAD 0.27 per common share. Barrick is acquiring a total of 5,518,764 shares, which brings its shareholding in the Company to 5.5%. The future of the partnership with the major also looks bright. The world's second-largest gold producer committed to investing at least USD 9 million in the newly acquired license area over the course of four years following the closing of the transaction. In a best-case scenario, Tembo Gold could draw a total contingency of USD 45 million from this.

    Tembo Gold's market capitalization currently stands at EUR 16.49 million. Due to the still relatively weak gold price, shares of the mining stock can also be acquired at a discounted level. Should the price rise sustainably, these are likely to benefit disproportionately.

    Barrick Gold - Strong results

    Speaking of Bulyanhulu, Barrick Gold's Tanzanian mines, North Mara and Bulyanhulu, produced more than 500,000 ounces of gold last year and are listed among the gold producer's Tier 1 assets. North Mara is on track to become a fully integrated mine with the planned commissioning of the Nyabirama pit in the current quarter. Operations are expected to commence in the third quarter of 2022, the Company said.

    Bulyanhulu has been restored as a low-cost, long-life, world-class underground mine, having achieved steady production after ramping up mining and metallurgical operations in December 2021. With gold prices rising, Barrick Gold belongs in every gold portfolio alongside Newmont. Put the stock on your watch list.

    RWE - Brilliant figures

    RWE significantly exceeded full-year forecasts in its full-year 2021 figures, with the water, gas and biomass sectors, in particular, performing better than expected at the end of the year. RWE will publish the full results on March 15, but the preliminary figures caused the share price to jump by almost 3%.

    Thus, the adjusted Group EBITDA amounts to EUR 3.650 billion and is above the forecast of EUR 3.0 to 3.4 billion. In the core business, adjusted EBITDA of EUR 2.761 billion also significantly beat the forecast of EUR 2.15 to 2.55 billion. Adjusted EBIT reached EUR 2.185 billion last year, compared with the forecast of EUR 1.5 to 1.9 billion. Net income amounted to EUR 1.569 billion. The dividend of EUR 0.90 per share is to be maintained.


    The market correction offers anti-cyclical entry opportunities. In particular, the gold market is attractive in the long term after a correction. Barrick Gold is the industry's blue-chip, while the giant's entry set Tembo Gold in motion. The energy giant RWE is also running like clockwork.

    Higher, faster, further: BYD, Infinity Stone, Porsche, Varta - The energy transition stock portfolio is wanted!

    • Mining
    • Gold
    • Electromobility
    • GreenTech

    The words "energy turnaround" are used a lot in public. The majority understand it to mean the use of GreenTech to generate energy while avoiding dangerous climate gases. Unfortunately, the leaks from the Nord Stream 2 pipeline, which is not in operation, are leaking the amount of gas into the atmosphere every day that the state of Denmark consumes in an entire week. This makes us painfully aware of how strongly warlike actions counteract efforts to save the climate. On the stock market, it is important to turn our gaze away from current events and toward a more peaceful future, where good ideas for sustainable change will also be rewarded. Which stocks belong in the portfolio?

    Barsele Minerals, K+S, BYD - Sweden as a crisis winner?

    • Mining

    • Electromobility

    Due to the explosions in the Baltic Sea pipelines Nord Stream 1 and 2, a switch to other energy sources is inevitable, especially for German industry. Fertilizer producer K+S, based in Kassel, is affected by this. The situation is different with Barsele Minerals. The Canadian company is exploring large gold areas in sunny Sweden and plans to mine up to 3.5 million ounces of the precious metal in the future. Electric car and battery manufacturer BYD, on the other hand, has sufficient resources in its home country of China and is preparing to make the leap into the European market. Find out here which shares are now defying the crisis.

    Barrick Gold, Tocvan Ventures, Newmont, Glencore - Long-term positioning in gold makes sense

    • Mining
    • Gold
    • Commodities
    • Investments

    The FED's recent interest rate hikes and Chairman Jerome Powell's statement sent both equity and precious metals markets into the valley of tears. By all means, the monetary guardians want to curb rampant inflation. Whether this will succeed seems at least questionable. After all, it should not be forgotten that this would put an end to the already sputtering engine of the global economy. In addition, many already highly indebted countries are falling into ever greater problems due to higher interest payments. Thus, it is time to take a long-term, anticyclical position in the precious metals sector.
