Is the FED Not Immediately Tackling Inflation Giving Gold A Boost

PR Newswire

PALM BEACH, Fla., Nov. 16, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — FinancialNewsMedia.com News Commentary – As history has shown again and again, Gold will go up and down but it always seems to end up on the high side… eventually. For much of this year, rising inflation has been bad news for gold. Now it’s giving the metal a shot in the arm, according to a recent article from Bloomberg News. The article said: “While bullion is often bought as a way to protect wealth when consumer prices are climbing, this year’s inflation had weighed on the metal as investors bet that it would spur the Federal Reserve to scale back huge stimulus measures. But with the Fed determined to keep rates low while unemployment remains elevated, worries about out-of-control inflation are boosting gold’s allure. That was clear on Wednesday (11/10/2021), when gold jumped to break out of a 15-month downtrend after data showed U.S. consumer prices rose the fastest since 1990. On Thursday, spot prices rose as much as 0.9%, before paring some of the gain.”  It continued: “Inflation “is not transitory,” said Nicky Shiels, head of metals strategy at MKS (Switzerland) SA. “It’s injected some bullish momentum. That’s a change from the previous ‘thinking’ since the Fed’s taper threat is out of the way.”  Active Companies in the markets today include Kingfisher Metals Corp. (OTCQB: KGFMF) (TSX-V: KFR), Great Bear Resources Ltd. (OTCQX: GTBAF) (TSXV: GBR), Newmont Corporation (NYSE: NEM) (TSX: NGT), Barrick Gold Corporation (NYSE: GOLD) (TSX: ABX), Kinross Gold Corporation (NYSE:KGC) (TSX:K).

Gold’s recent rally shows that the market doesn’t expect the Fed — which last week announced the pace of its bond-buying tapering — to do much more to tackle inflation right now. That’s creating a Goldilocks environment for the metal, where inflation erodes bond yields that are kept in check by stimulus measures, burnishing the appeal of non-interest bearing assets like gold.  It’s not just the U.S. seeing inflation accelerate. Data also show prints in China, Japan and Germany climbing the fastest in decades, and there are signs that’s sparking fresh physical demand for gold.  “German private investors have already reacted to the recent higher inflation rates with rising demand,” said Alexander Zumpfe, a senior trader at refiner Heraeus Metals Germany GmbH & Co. “We are observing a significant increase in buying interest for gold bars.”

Kingfisher Metals Corp. (OTCQB: KGFMF) (TSX-V: KFR) BREAKING NEWS – Kingfisher Intersects 6.88 g/t Au, 13.60 g/t Ag, and 0.28% Cu over 9 m in first-ever drill program, Cloud Drifter Trend, Goldrange Project Kingfisher Metals Corp. (OTCQB: KGFMF) (TSX-V: KFR) (FSE: 970) (“Kingfisher” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce results from the first four holes assayed from its 14-hole 4925.3 m 2021 program. Assay results for 10 remaining drill holes are pending. Goldrange is located approximately 25 km south of the town of Tatla Lake in the Chilcotin region of Southwest British Columbia. 

Highlights

  • Discovery of a high-grade sulfide-cement hydrothermal breccia with 6.88 g/t Au, 13.6 g/t Ag and 0.28% Cu over 9 m, in GR21-007
  • Vein-style mineralization yielding 14.80 g/t Au over 1 m within 2.16 g/t Au over 8 m, also in GR21-007; and 5.30 g/t Au over 1 m in GR21-002
  • Drilling to date has also revealed broad zones of near-surface mineralization over significant widths, such as 0.90 g/t Au over 12 m, 0.41 g/t Au over 16 m, 0.38 g/t Au over 9 m, and 0.38 g/t Au over 10 m in GR21-003; and 0.32 g/t Au over 7 m and 0.32 g/t over 8 m in GR21-007

The initial results of drilling confirm the presence of a gold system with significant intersects in all holes other than GR21-001, which failed to reach target depth due to difficult drilling conditions in this shallow, slope-parallel hole; poor recoveries may have plagued the shallower parts of all drill holes in this release

The 2021 drill program targeted a small part (350 m) of the western end of the gold-in-soil geochemical anomaly that defines the ~3 by 2 km Cloud Drifter Trend, in an area of extensive forest cover and limited outcrop…

Dustin Perry, CEO of Kingfisher states “I am thrilled that we were able to intersect high-grade mineralization on the initial drill holes of the first ever diamond drill program at the Goldrange Project. This initial drill program at Goldrange covered less than 10% of the Cloud Drifter Trend yet it is yielding some impressive intersections so far. We believe we are in the early stages of the discovery of a significant high-grade gold camp and we look forward to receiving our remaining results from both the Cloud Drifter drilling and from our property-wide exploration (soil and rock geochemical sampling, geological mapping, and IP geophysics).  Planning for an expanded 2022 drill and field program throughout the Trend has already begun.” 

Charlie Greig, Technical Advisor to Kingfisher, stated “The results from the first Cloud Drifter holes are exciting. To get broad ore grade intercepts in the initial holes bodes very well for the exploration potential of the Trend. The polyphase nature of the mineralization and its association with elevated bismuth, tellurium and antimony, elements which may be valuable in their own right and which are very commonly associated with high-grade gold deposits worldwide is significant. It is very early days for the Goldrange Project and its numerous mineral occurrences, which are just now beginning to be tested with modern exploration methods.”  CONTINUED…  Read this full release for Kingfisher Metals Corp. at:  https://www.financialnewsmedia.com/news-kfr/

Other recent Solar developments in the markets include:

Great Bear Resources Ltd. (OTCQX: GTBAF) (TSXV: GBRrecently reported gold recovery test results from its 100% owned flagship Dixie Project, in the Red Lake district of Ontario.

Chris Taylor, President and CEO of Great Bear said, “We selected what were anticipated to be the ‘most difficult’ mineralized domains to extract gold from at the LP Fault, and are pleased to report very high gold recoveries at all grades. This has strong positive implications for the future development potential of the Dixie project. Similar very high gold recoveries from the Dixie Limb and Hinge zones using comparable grinding and cyanidation protocols indicates mineralized material from all gold zones is likely amenable to processing through the same extraction circuits. Initial LP Fault cyanidation gold recovery tests confirm that non-refractory, free gold dominates all low to high-grade domains tested to-date. All Dixie gold zones have excellent potential for significant gravity circuit gold recoveries, which will be investigated in the next phase of metallurgical testing.”

Newmont Corporation (NYSE: NEM) (TSX: NGT) recently announced third quarter 2021 results.  THIRD QUARTER 2021 HIGHLIGHTS WERE: Produced 1.45 million attributable ounces of gold and 315 thousand attributable gold equivalent ounces from co-products; Reported gold CAS* of $830 per ounce and AISC* of $1,120 per ounce; Updated full-year guidance of 6.0 million ounces of attributable gold production, $790 per ounce of CAS and $1,050 per ounce of AISC**, reaffirming original guidance of 1.3 million gold equivalent ounces from copper, silver, lead and zinc; Generated $1.1 billion of cash from continuing operations and $735 million of Free Cash Flow (97 percent attributable to Newmont); Declared third quarter dividend of $0.55 per share, consistent with the previous quarter; Completed $99 million of share repurchases from $1 billion buyback program; Ended the quarter with $4.6 billion of consolidated cash and $7.6 billion of liquidity with a net debt to adjusted EBITDA* ratio of 0.2x; Delivered the gold industry’s first Autonomous Haulage System (AHS) fleet, improving safety and long-term productivity at Boddington; Advancing near-term projects, including Tanami Expansion 2, Ahafo North and the mining method change at Subika Underground; and Progressing Yanacocha Sulfides, investing at least $500M through 2022 with a full funds decision expected in the second half of 2022.

Barrick Gold Corporation (NYSE: GOLD) (TSX: ABX) — Strong third quarter production from its Africa and Middle East (AME) and Latin America regions has positioned them to meet the top end of their guidance for the year.

7 Stocks to Buy If the Government Shuts Down in February 2022

Since Wall Street’s opening bell sounded on the day after Thanksgiving, clouds of uncertainty have hung over U.S. markets. Reports of what would soon…

Since Wall Street’s opening bell sounded on the day after Thanksgiving, clouds of uncertainty have hung over U.S. markets. Reports of what would soon be dubbed the omicron variant were quick to send shock waves across certain sectors. And since then, more news has risen from Capitol Hill that has proved unsettling for investors. Bipartisan bickering has led to increasing discussion of a government shutdown.

Fortunately, Democratic lawmakers managed to avert the shutdown just before a key Dec. 3 deadline, securing funding through February 2022. This represents only a temporary solution to a larger problem, though, leaving investors with pressing questions. What could a government shutdown mean for markets?

If you’re wondering what stocks to buy as the next funding, you’re not alone.
While we don’t know for sure what the immediate future will look like, if it does include a government shutdown, either partial or complete, it likely won’t be all bad news for investors. On the contrary, there are some industries that stand to benefit. Let’s take a look at some stocks to buy if a shutdown does occur.

  • Procter & Gamble (NYSE:PG)
  • Campbell Soup (NYSE:CPB)
  • Archer-Daniels-Midland (NYSE:ADM)
  • Coca-Cola (NYSE:KO)
  • Colgate-Palmolive (NYSE:CL)
  • Altria Group (NUSE:MO)
  • Newmont (NYSE:NEM)

Stocks to Buy for a Government Shut Down: Procter & Gamble (PG)

As you can probably tell from the names on this list, the consumer staples sector is likely to benefit the most from a shutdown. No company produces more household items than Procter & Gamble. Its holdings are truly vast, spanning healthcare, home care, and baby and feminine care, to name just a few. And in each area, P&G has secured a significant market share.

Government shutdowns tend to induce strong feelings of uncertainty, compelling consumers to stock up on the items they don’t want to be without if things take a turn for the worst. During the shutdown of 2018, many government agency workers found themselves working without pay or with wages in furlough. They remember that feeling well and if a shutdown comes again, they don’t want to be ill-prepared.

We also know that during periods of uncertainty, nervous Americans tend to over-prepare by over-shopping. The kind of products they need are distributed by large companies, and Procter & Gamble controls many of the country’s most trusted brands.

PG stock has also been touted for its resistance to the inflationary trends that are also affecting consumer habits. If you’re looking for stocks to buy in preparation for a shutdown, there’s no better bet than this consumer staples giant.

Campbell Soup Company (CPB)

If Americans are going to be stocking up on essentials, they’ll be employing the same practice when it comes to food. And when it comes to stockpiling non-perishable food items, there’s no better bet than Campbell Soup.

The iconic brand is sold everywhere, from big-box markets to dollar stores, and it keeps for months upon months. Additionally, we’re heading into the coldest season and as temperatures drop, the need for warm items such as hearty soups will only mount. InvestorPlace contributor Joel Baglole named CPB as  stock to buy the next time a national event gives Americans apocalyptic anxieties. As he stated, “When people think of stockpiling food supplies, they turn to soup. It’s hearty, comforting, makes for a great lunch, and has a shelf life that can outdo most other canned goods.”

Sales are likely to increase as the company heads into a winter marked by multiple events that could easily have Americans stocking up on food items. CPB stock should definitely be high on your list of stocks to buy for a shutdown, particularly as it’s been struggling lately, creating what could become a lucrative opportunity to buy the dip if such trends continue.

Stocks to Buy for a Government Shutdown: Archer-Daniels-Midland (ADM)

The company commonly referred to by its initials is known as a staple of food production and distribution. With a reach that extends far beyond that, though, it’s also a leader in the global field of agricultural processing. Throughout years of fairly steady growth, the company has worked to emphasize practices that center around health and sustainability. ADM doesn’t own farms, but it partners with them by supplying innovative technologies to help spur the growth and distribution of agricultural products.

It doesn’t stop with agricultural services, though. The company’s work spans areas including oilseeds and carbohydrate solutions as well as animal nutrition ingredients. Moreover, if it involves food and will be in demand as America faces a daunting economic outlook, ADM will be helping provide it.

It’s worth noting that while many consumers will absolutely be stocking up on items like Campbell soups, their more health-conscious peers will be more focused on the food items provided by companies like Archer-Daniels-Midland. ADM was recently named to a list of consumer staple stocks to buy for reasons even more pronounced today.

Coca-Cola Company (KO)

There’s likely no brand more iconically American than Coca-Cola. Even non-soda drinkers have sampled some product owned by the massive soft drink conglomerate whose holdings are also quite vast, encompassing brands such as Dasani Waters, Honest Tea and Minute Maid Beverages.

If nervous Americans are stocking up on food, they’ll also have to stock up on beverages and there is no beverage company better-known than Coca-Cola. Not all Americans drink the soda for which the company is named, but their beverage of choice is likely made by one of the company’s subsidiaries. With this type of empire, KO is a safe investment as the country prepares for a period of uncertainty.

Even in the face of inflation, KO stock appears to be standing its ground. As it turns out, there is plenty of reason, as the stock is touted for its inflation-proof qualities. As InvestorPlace contributor Alex Sirois noted in a recent list on exactly that topic, “the general thesis is that consumer goods bear the brunt of inflation.” KO stock should definitely should not be counted out of lists of stocks to buy in the face of a government shutdown.

Stocks to Buy for a Government Shutdown: Colgate-Palmolive (CL)

Image of the Colgate-Palmolive logo on a buildingSource: Shutterstock

It isn’t just food and beverages that Americans will be stocking up on if the shutdown proceeds, though. You probably associate the name with products such as toothpaste, but the multi-national corporation under which Colgate operates produces and distributes toothbrushes, mouthwashes, and rinses for both adults and children. It also produces products of general hygiene needs for both humans and animals. For anyone concerned with dental wellness or just general hygiene, Colgate’s products are essential, and they will be of paramount importance in a time of economic uncertainty. If you keep it next to your bathroom sink, Colgate-Palmolive probably made it.

Earlier this year, InvestorPlace contributor Josh Enomoto named CL among recession-resistant stocks to buy for nervous investors. “A recession would have to be pretty darn awful for people to skimp out on the bare necessities,” he noted.

While we’re not facing a recession just yet, it seems a safe assumption that Colgate-Palmolive will be a company that only sees business increases as nervous Americans prepare for the worst. The last government shutdown we saw led to considerable economic instability and plenty of anxiety among consumers. This time around, Americans will want to be prepared and shopping helps the nervous feel better, particularly for the type of essentials that Colgate-Palmolive provides.

Altria Group (MO)

We’ve discussed the essentials quite a bit throughout this list, but we all know that nervous Americans won’t just be buying what’s good for them. They’ll be stocking up on things that help them feel better, such as alcohol and cigarettes. Tobacco companies stand to benefit from an economic period where stress will be high. This giant of its sector owns several of the biggest names in big tobacco including PhilipMorrisUSA. It’s also worth noting that Altria has been exploring expansions into the fast-growing cannabis market. In 2018, it made a strategic investment in Canadian cannabis producer Cronos Group (NASDAQ:CRON) and explored further investments more recently.

As InvestorPlace contributor Chris Lau noted, “Some investors view tobacco as an unattractive investment. But people who smoke still need to buy the company’s products. Plus, Altria has a discount segment that is growing. It is careful not to gouge price-sensitive customers, especially its premium brands.”

Anyone seeking to capitalize on the increase in cigarette sales that the country could see would be well served to consider MO among shutdown stocks to buy.

Stocks to Buy for a Government Shutdown: Newmont (NEM)

While this name may seem like an odd choice for a list that primarily includes consumer staples stocks, it’s also worthwhile to consider a worst-case scenario play, examining the type of stock that stands to benefit if a shutdown is prolonged or leads to a worse economic landscape in which fears are amplified significantly.

If we start approaching that type of scenario, we’re likely to see companies with heavy ties to gold mining start to benefit as Americans seek the safest ways to store their money and protect their assets. As the country’s largest gold mining company, Newmont is worth a look if you’re seeking stocks to buy. The company’s mines can be found in the American west, but its mining reach has expanded to countries such as the Dominican Republic, Ghana and Australia.

We recently saw a rally in gold prices following the inflationary trends that came to define the late fall. While prices have fallen since then, fears are now rising for other reasons and if they continue to worsen, gold mining companies will be standing at the ready.

For anyone interested in stocks to buy for a time marked by panic and uncertainty, this could be a good time for a bullish play on gold mining.

BMO Resumes Coverage On MAG Silver Following US$46.0 Million Financing

The post BMO Resumes Coverage…

On November 29, MAG Silver (TSX: MAG) closed their US$46 million offering wherein the company issued 2.69 million shares, which included 15,700 shares to MAG insiders at US$17.15 per share. The company stated that they intend to use the proceeds of the offering, “to fund exploration on Juanicipio and its other projects including Deer Trail, and to fund certain sustaining capital requirements at the Juanicipio Project not included in the initial project capital estimates, and for working capital and general corporate purposes.”

MAG Silver currently has 10 analysts covering the stock with an average 12-month price target of C$28.83, or a 39% upside to the current stock price. Out of the 10 analysts, 7 have buy ratings and the other 3 have hold ratings. The street high sits at C$33.82 from Roth Capital while the lowest comes in at C$24.75.

On the 29th, BMO Capital Markets resumed their coverage on MAG Silver, reiterating their C$25 12-month price target and market perform rating. BMO says that this raise will help fund exploration and get Juanicipio across the finish line.

Additionally, it will help keep the companies cash balance strong. The company ended the third quarter with US$31.7 million. With this additional US$40 million on hand, they expect the company to make a $30 million capital contribution to their joint venture sometime in December. That will top the joint venture up to US$68 million in cash and MAG with roughly $34 million in cash, plus the cash flow from the business. They believe that MAG Silver will end out 2021 with US$44 million in cash.

BMO has updated their net asset value but believes the raise has only a modest impact since the increase in shares is roughly 3% with the overallotment, bringing the total shares outstanding to 97.8 million. This brings their NAV assumption to US$10.29 from US$10.19 prior.

Lastly, BMO says that the company is getting close to Juanicipio ramping up. The company noted that the plant is expected to come in on budget and expected to be completed by year-end.

Below you can see BMO’s full year 2022 assumptions.

The Buckingham Graphite Project – Noble Mineral Exploration (TSX.V: NOB)

CEO, Vance White and Exploration Manager, Wayne Holmstead had us out to the Buckingham Graphite property to highlight the opportunity it presents the company….

CEO, Vance White and Exploration Manager, Wayne Holmstead had us out to the Buckingham Graphite property to highlight the opportunity it presents the company. Graphite of this quality will be in high demand as several auto manufacturers have publicly stated they will shift to EV’s by 2030. Furthermore, the Quebec government is already taking steps to ensure that Quebec is a leader in Battery metals, manufacturing and clean energy.

About The Buckingham Graphite Project

The Buckingham graphite property is located in the Outaouais area of the Grenville Subprovince of Quebec. It consists of 30 claims (1803 hectares) and contains 3 separate graphite occurrences. The main occurrence (McGuire) was worked by Stratmin Inc. in 1985-86 when a ground electromagnetic survey was done following a regional airborne survey. Three diamond drill holes were completed to intersect the electromagnetic anomalies, 2 of which intersected graphite mineralization which was found to be hosted by marble and gneissic rocks.

Although the nature of the graphite on the Buckingham Property has not been determined, graphite concurrences in this area are normally coarse grained, flake graphite. This type of graphite is the most desirable of the naturally occurring types that is used to produce lithium-based batteries. Lithium-based batteries are required for a variety of ‘green’ technologies, including electric vehicles. The global demand for these types of products is expected to rise as world governments lean towards environmentally friendly products rather than petroleum-based ones.

The second graphite occurrence (Cummings) is described as a “deposit in the form of narrow bands of graphite occurring in gneiss and marble over a length of 300 m and a width of 30 m. The graphite occurs in several irregular bands within the 30 m zone.” The Cummings Occurrence is located about 1.5 km southeast of the McGuire Occurrence.

The third graphite showing on the property is called the Robidoux Occurrence and is located about 4 km east of the McGuire Occurrence. It was described by the Quebec Superintendent of Mines in a 1910 report as a “partially uncovered graphitic bed over a length of about forty feet. Some shallow pits have also exposed graphitic outcrops, presumably of the same bed, for an additional distance of 75 to 100 feet. The bed where exposed by the main stripping is about four feet thick and dips into the side of a low hill at an angle of 40 to 50 degrees.” It was also noted that “the graphite ore contains over 30% carbon.”

About Noble Mineral Exploration

Noble Mineral Exploration Inc. is a Canadian-based junior exploration company which, in addition to its shareholdings in Canada Nickel Company Inc., Spruce Ridge Resources Ltd. and MacDonald Mines Exploration Ltd., and its interest in the Holdsworth gold exploration property in the Wawa, Ontario area, holds approximately 72,000 hectares of mineral rights in the Timmins-Cochrane areas of Northern Ontario known as Project 81. Project 81 hosts diversified drill-ready gold, nickel-cobalt and base metal exploration/VMS targets at various stages of exploration.
