Patience is a virtue. Especially on the stock market, investors are often required to be patient. Why do rising prices take so long to materialize, even though the relevant facts are already on the table? One or the other investor who has invested in commodity shares has undoubtedly experienced this or a similar situation. But those who take a longer-term view and make the proper sense of the relevant framework conditions that determine supply and demand will be successful. Precious metals have proven to be a protection against inflation over long periods of time. Various raw materials such as copper and lithium are experiencing rising demand as a result of electromobility. These three stocks offer opportunities.

    SIERRA GRANDE MINERALS INC - Geochemical soil sample results published

    Based in the Canadian province of British Columbia, the Company specializes in the exploration of gold, silver, copper and molybdenum projects in their absolute early stages. In the past, the Company focused on two regions: the US state of Nevada and Peru. With the sale of exploration rights for two properties in the Andean state, the Company now operates exclusively in the USA.

    In the "Silver State" of Nevada, Sierra is currently exploring the three projects Glitra/Sat, Mildred/B&C Springs and Betty East, all of which are located on the Walker Lane Trend, which is historically known to be high grade. The collection of 1,805 soil geochemical samples at 50m to 100m intervals was completed in late May. The results are now available.

    At Glitra, a prospective north-northeast trending mineralized and altered zone over 1km long has been identified, ranging in width from 150m to 200m. Consistently high gold-in-soil results were noted along the north-northeast trend. An additional 77 claims were staked by Sierra along this trend, increasing the size of the Glitra property by a factor of five. Sat also delivered encouraging results. An additional 19 claims were staked, roughly doubling the size of the property.

    President and CEO Sonny Janda commented, "The results of our soil sampling programs are very encouraging and demonstrate the potential for exciting discoveries at Glitra/Sat. The subsequent second phase of exploration will include geological mapping, ground-based IP and airborne magnetic surveys and ultimately initial RC drilling to test the most prospective of these targets. In addition, we look forward to releasing the results of the ground geochemical surveys from our other two projects, B&C Springs and Betty East, as they become available."

    Further project progress could significantly move the share price, which is also traded in Frankfurt, at any time. The Company currently has a market capitalization of only about CAD 4 million.

    BARRICK GOLD CORPORATION - Gold price trumps dividend policy

    The share of the world's second-largest gold producer could not escape the slide of gold below the USD 1,800 mark. It does not help that the Canadians, valued at CAD 44 billion, recently paid a special dividend of CAD 0.14 per share in addition to a quarterly dividend of CAD 0.09 per share. However, recent newsflow underscores its strong position as one of the industry's top dogs.

    Nevada Gold Mines (NGM) recently entered into a definitive asset swap agreement to acquire from i-80 Gold Corp. the 40% interest in the South Arturo joint venture and a low-cost option to acquire the adjacent Rodeo Creek exploration property in exchange for the Lone Tree and Buffalo Mountain properties and infrastructure currently under care and maintenance. Nevada Gold Mines is a joint venture between Barrick and Newmont. Barrick holds a 61.5% majority interest, with Newmont holding the remaining shares. NGM was formed in 2019 with the contribution of significant assets in the US state of Nevada with no less a goal than to create the largest gold production complex in the world.

    SIBANYE STILLWATER LIMITED - 2022 P/E ratio of 3.7 and 10% dividend yield

    The South African stock is among the cheapest precious metals producers in the world. Despite recently reporting record first-half results, the share price is crumbling. Improved operating performance, combined with significantly higher commodity prices, led to a 160% increase in net income to USD 1.74 billion. Basic earnings per share were USD 0.58.

    In presenting its figures, the group reiterated its strategy to build an operating portfolio of green energy metals and related technologies alongside its established business. So far, the South African Company has mainly produced gold and platinum group metals. Valued at USD 10.8 billion, the Company has a 2022 P/E of just 3.7 and a dividend yield of around 10%. The launched share buyback program has not given the share price any positive impetus so far.

    Patient investors should find attractive investments among the shares presented. Barrick is the world's second-largest gold producer and benefits from higher precious metal prices. Sibanye is also a heavyweight with an extremely low company valuation. Those looking to participate in the growth of a fledgling company with good project quality should consider Sierra Grande Minerals. The Canadians are valued at only CAD 4 million.

    E-mobility versus combustion engines: Tesla and BYD stumble, Mercedes-Benz and Globex Mining in Vogue!

    • Mining

    • RareEarths
    • Electromobility

    The Tesla plant in Brandenburg is discharging polluted wastewater into the canals. Permissible limits for phosphorus and nitrogen are exceeded by up to six times. Elon Musk has not yet reacted to the accusations, as he is busy planning the expansion of his production facility. If the authorities were to take action here, the plant could also be subject to a production stop until the harmful sources are eliminated. Once again, environmental protection and the climate debate clash with the self-interest of foreign producers seemingly not on the radar of existing EU regulations. The water debate is nothing new. Since the plant in Grünheide went into operation, local communities have had to contend with a drop in the groundwater level because the plant draws an impermissible amount of water. For those finding Tesla unsympathetic due to these issues, look for other opportunities in the automotive sector!

    Top news: BYD, Bayer and Globex Mining

    Bayer shocked investors yesterday with the announcement of its dividend cut, which shouldn't have been much of a surprise. The Company is burdened with high debt, endless legal fines, and an empty pharmaceutical pipeline. In an initial reaction, analysts have lowered the share price target. BYD, on the other hand, is doing well operationally. Only the share price is not picking up. Will a share buyback turn the share price around? For those who want to profit from the commodity boom with reduced risk, then Globex Mining's stock is attractive. The news flow is strong, and those who act quickly can still register and follow the live presentation of the mining incubator at the 10th International Investment Forum, IIF, today.

    Investors should have TUI, Globex Mining and Palantir on their watchlist, as they could be on the verge of movement. While TUI, as a leading tourism company, is showing signs of recovery after the pandemic, Globex Mining promises important impetus for the future of the industry and green technologies with its broad commodities portfolio. Palantir, on the other hand, known for its advanced data analytics platforms, is on the brink of significant growth opportunities in an increasingly data-rich era. In this context, movements are possible, and as an investor, one would want to be invested early. We highlight the potential of the three companies.
