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.

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.

MAS Gold, Barrick Gold, Yamana Gold - Go for gold!

  • Gold

If you look at the big picture, several aspects favor a medium-term increase in the price of gold. It is a combination of a low-interest rate environment, rising inflation and crisis currency in volatile stock market times. In addition, the global economic recovery is increasing the demand for gold. As the past has shown, the gold price can perform strongly even when nominal yields rise if inflation rates climb faster than interest rates. We believe this scenario is very realistic. Thus, these stocks should benefit.

Sierra Grande, Sibanye Stillwater, First Majestic - New developments!

  • Gold

High inflation argues in favor of investing in tangible assets such as equities, real estate and commodities. The traffic light is green for price increases in precious metals and energy metals in the medium term. Ultimately, investors must decide whether producers or exploration companies are of interest. Or perhaps a little of each?

B2Gold, Tembo Gold, Newmont: Gold from small amounts? Here is how!

  • Gold

Gold has become mainstream. Even the German newspaper Handelsblatt quotes experts saying that the precious metal currently offers more opportunities than risks. The reasons for this are the rising inflation and the growing uncertainty in the financial system. But how can investors get a foot in the door with gold without having to put up too much capital or, as is usual with physical holdings, having to rent the already scarce lockers?
