SIEMENS, NEL, BLACKROCK GOLD: Gold before the next buying wave!

The US-Department of Labor did not have good news to share yesterday. Although the number of initial applications for benefits from the US unemployment insurance scheme decreased in the week ending September 26, seasonally adjusted, it still amounted to 837,000, which was then corrected upward to 873,000. Compared to the previous week, this is only 36,000 fewer than previously reported. 11.77 million people now receive unemployment benefits in the USA. The gold market has known for a while now of the huge hole in the public coffers, due to the economic slump of over 30%, created by the pandemic. The latest market correction is complete, and it is heading north again at rates of over USD 1,900.00.

"[...] 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often as high as 20 grams of gold per tonne; because they are produced by artisanal miners, local miners who use outdated technology for gold production.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


SIEMENS - separation of the energy sector successful

The spin-off of the Siemens energy division must be regarded as successful. The former division became independent at the end of September. With just under 730 million shares and a current share price of EUR 22.74, the market capitalization is still EUR 16.6 billion. That would even be enough for the DAX, although the parent company is already listed there. The new MDAX aspirant has 90,000 employees and achieved a turnover of EUR 29 billion at last count.

Siemens shareholders were able to profit twice over because the long-standing conglomerate discount has now been reversed to some extent, for the better, as a result of the corporate splitting. On the one hand, they now hold an additional share in their securities account, which will pay regular dividends, and the spin-off effect of around EUR 11 billion was significantly less than the new share is now worth. This is how we work in the interests of our shareholders - thank you, Siemens!

NEL ASA - Share price cooling after the Nikola-beating

The scandal about the alleged fraud at Nikola also dragged the hydrogen company NEL ASA into the depths. Since the beginning of September, the price went down by 33%, which had previously reached an annual high of EUR 2.17. The reason was doubts that the network of hydrogen filling stations in North America, which was already believed to be "sold", would not make it into NEL's books so quickly after all.

Nevertheless, the figures which were presented at the end of August were not that bad. The turnover in the second quarter increased by 21% to NOK 149 million compared to the previous year - which, converted to Euro, only amounts to 13.6 million. With the level of awareness of the stock exchange, the order backlog at least increased by 75% to a good NOK 1 billion. However, the North American order must be considered a blockbuster given the still low turnover. The loss of this order is therefore likely to harm the NEL share for long term.

BLACKROCK GOLD - spin-off fantasy also driving the price of gold mines

The Board of Directors of Blackrock Gold Corp. is currently evaluating a proposal to transfer the company's Silver Cloud property located in northern Nevada, to a newly formed subsidiary (SpinCo). Following the financing of SpinCo, the shares will be distributed to Blackrock shareholders. Similar to Siemens, different issues are separated from each other, as the separate valuation is usually above the price for the group. Blackrock Gold will focus in the future on the Tonopah West property, also in the US state of Nevada. Five weeks ago, a 1.5 metre interval of approximately 3,600 grams silver equivalent per tonne was identified in drill hole TW 20-001. This is excellent mineralization that makes a mine look profitable.

Andrew Pollard, President and Chief Executive Officer, stated, "With gold hovering near all-time highs and our Tonopah West property dominating the show, we see this as the perfect backdrop to unlock value for investors by spinning out what was once our flagship property, Silver Cloud, into a separate, discovery-oriented public company. (...)."

The company's management is currently considering granting Blackrock shareholders one SpinCo share for every three common shares of Blackrock. Blackrock's share price has increased sevenfold in 2020 and is currently consolidating at a high level. If the spin-off goes smoothly without objections, a significant price increase is still possible with a tailwind from the precious metals front.

NIO, NewPeak Metals, Barrick Gold - The calm before the storm!

  • Gold

The stock indices are still in a celebratory mood. Both the DAX and the Dow Jones benchmark index again reached historic highs last week. In addition to all the euphoria, there was the successful debut of the crypto exchange Coinbase, which also helped Bitcoin, Etherum & Co to achieve new all-time highs. Meanwhile, the first signs of life came from the precious metals for the first time in months. Gold was able to stop its losing trend since the beginning of the year and should become interesting again due to the fundamental data. One can profit from the favorable entry opportunities!

Plug Power, Desert Gold, Bayer - Shares with opportunities despite all-time highs?

  • Gold

Almost all indices are near their all-time highs. No wonder, given the expansive monetary policy and the associated inflation expectations. Commodity prices, in particular, are seeing a sharp rise. Thursday, gold was able to break the resistance area at USD 1,750. Despite this positive environment, however, some stocks are far from their all-time high. We will take a closer look at these today.

Coinbase, Plug Power, NSJ Gold Corp. - Bitcoin, inflation, gold - triple whammy!

  • Gold

The crypto craze has erupted. Nothing is currently causing as much of a stir as cryptocurrencies, their trading platforms and all the service companies surrounding them. Never before have there been such price surges in associated assets in such a short period. There is widespread talk of the crypto world as a means to combat inflation and provide a new payment system. Let's be honest: a currency that fluctuates by more than 500% every six months is hardly suitable for mapping the payment flows of millions of transactions in the goods sector. A Bitcoin that cost EUR 10,000 in the summer of 2020 has reached prices of over EUR 50,000 today. How should one deal with this alleged "currency" - Impossible, as Bitcoin itself is probably inflationary!
