Speculative small caps and hot penny stocks have their place on the stock market. But because of their risk profile, the stocks must also deliver what they promise. A quotation in the cent range is not enough. An investment is only worthwhile if a typical penny stock price also stands for a low valuation and meets the prospect of revaluation. Which speculative stocks offer opportunities today and what investors should better keep their hands off.

Steinhoff: Gambling depends on the odds

The Steinhoff share should be familiar to almost every active investor in Germany by now. The furniture group suffered an accounting scandal years ago and has been under legal pressure ever since. The damages demanded could drive the Company into bankruptcy. Since then, the opponents in the proceedings have been bickering, making compromise proposals and presenting arguments. On the stock market, this has caused ups and downs. For investors who are used to riding the wave-like movements of penny stocks, the stock was a ready-made meal for a long time. But how does it look today?

Since the turn of the year, the share has doubled. At times, it had risen even more sharply. Time and again, there were indications that a settlement was imminent - at least that was the interpretation of many bona fide investors. But even in the event of a favorable settlement for Steinhoff, the Company would still be struggling - after all, the group would have to put some of its silverware on the line in order to appease the plaintiffs. Even after a settlement, the outlook for Steinhoff is rather bleak. If the share were still at EUR 0.03 today, speculation about an end to the legal dispute would be justified. Currently, however, an investment resembles a gamble. Since the future of Steinhoff is anything but rosy, the drop rate currently seems too high.

Equinox and Yamana: Opportunities or boredom?

Those looking for quick profits on the stock market can also look for laggards. Now that the gold price is likely to have left its lows behind and is meanwhile stalking the USD 1,800 mark again, smaller gold producers could be promising. The shares of Equinox Gold and also Yamana Gold have gone through a consolidation phase lasting several months. Operationally, both companies have also made changes: Yamana invested CAD 20 million in Ascot Resources and Equinox absorbed Premier Gold Mines, retained some projects and spun off projects in Nevada into new gold developer i-80 Gold.

Although Yamana Gold's stock is already hinting at exiting the downtrend of recent months, both Yamana and Equinox remain rather unattractive to speculative investors. While small and mid-sized producers certainly have their appeal, investors need to look very closely at all projects to identify opportunities and rule out risks. The situation is more straightforward with developers who focus primarily on one project but whose resources are nowhere near as highly valued as those of a producer.

Osino Resources: Sprott analysts see almost 100% potential

Osino Resources is a case in point. The Company operates in politically stable and legally secure Namibia, advancing the Twin Hills project. In 2020 alone, Osino drilled around 35,000 meters with eight rigs and described its project as well advanced. Analysts at Sprott Equity Research agree and refer to the rapid development in recent months: The team around CEO Heye Daun can now present a first resource estimate for Twin Hills according to mining standards, which speaks for itself. 1.9 million ounces at grades of 1.1 g/t are a convincing first house number for the analysts. A preliminary feasibility study is to follow by the middle of next year. The drilling history shows that the previous figures are preliminary. The above resource comprises 69,000 meters of drilling - but 75,000 more meters are planned in 2021 alone.

The team around Osino has already impressively demonstrated how to move a project forward quickly: Years ago, they sold the Otjikoto mine, also located in Namibia, to B2Gold. Today, the mine is the cash cow par excellence for the Company. The analysts at Sprott believe that the Osino Resources share can reach a price of up to CAD 2.55 - the share is currently trading at CAD 1.34. Unlike producers, project developers like Osino Resources offer more potential for dynamic growth, as the market is only gradually pricing in the project's success. Investors who can interpret positive signals around a project at an early stage have the chance to enter the market at an early stage.

In contrast to many classic penny stocks, investors are not betting on a single event, such as a legal case, but on development. This development is sometimes assessed as more optimistic and sometimes more pessimistic depending on the overall market. Anti-cyclical investors, in particular, can take advantage of this.

Newmont Corp, Triumph Gold, Lufthansa, TUI - Dramatic turnaround in the course!

  • Gold

Gold and silver are turning in significantly, Lufthansa and TUI have gone through with their large capital increases - what is next here? Even if the major indices experienced a strong correction in October yesterday, there was a dramatic turnaround in several respects. Volatility as a fluctuation indicator even came back so strongly in the last few days that it fell below the threshold of 20 again. This indicator shows that the need for hedging is probably dwindling, i.e. the interest of the investment community tends to be directed upwards again. But inflation can still put a spoke in the party's wheel - but that would again be a buying argument for the precious metals! We direct our view on some turnaround candidates.

Nordex, Tembo Gold, Plug Power - Great rebound potential

  • Gold

"If you don't have the shares when they fall, you don't have them when they rise", this quote comes from the stock market legend André Kostolany. The words of the old master can be applied to the current state of both the stock and precious metals markets. The renewable energy sector currently offers great comeback opportunities. The prices of most wind, hydroelectric and hydrogen stocks have lost more than half their value in recent months, and the bottoming process is underway. Which companies are coming back and continuing their upward trend?

XPeng, Central African Gold, Volkswagen - It will not work without metals

Decarbonization is the magic word when it comes to achieving the ever-tighter climate targets. The phase-out of coal and the move away from fossil fuels, oil and natural gas is a done deal. However, considerable quantities of copper, lithium, cobalt and nickel are needed to ensure the energy turnaround, whether for electromobility, solar or wind technology. A limited supply is already matching the enormous demand. A stalling of ambitious plans is already preprogrammed.
