Taking Advantage of the Gold Price

25/8/16

ASX: AYC and ASX: KBL

Currently the fundamentals for the yellow metal seem to be on the uptrend

what with the ultra low interest rates all around the world (including the negative ones) the uncertainty in the European union with some of the not-so-well performing economies of Italy, Spain, Greece etc
The recent Brexit which has left the UK in the land of the unknown
The US with upcoming election and potential president Trump
China Slowing down
Bond prices at record lows

it seems like global growth and the search for yield is driving a lot of dollars into Gold
on top of that the 5 year lows of gold has put it in a position which has made it quite undervalued

Since December the Gold price has shot up 30% and is one of the best performing asset classes on the market

in light of all this a lot of the major Gold producers have increased significantly

there is some value for the smaller gold companies which are entering or have entered the production phase and have market caps which warrant some re-rating

my first pick is ASX:KBL – KBL mining

The Stats

Price $0.003
Mkt Cap ~$8M (fully diluted ~$14M)
Revenue generation: Gold producer
Why

Been producing gold since Sept 15 – ave over last 3 qtrs has been just under 7k oz = ~30k oz per year

current margin at gold prices currently mean they should be generating as much cashflow as their market cap or more

other factors to consider
still need to prove up a large enough resource

catalyst will be if they can keep generating cashflow from the existing reserves and shore up a resource large enough to warrant further mining

speculative buy at current price

my second pick is ASX:AYC – A1 Consolidated Gold

The Stats

Price $0.025
Mkt Cap ~$15M (fully diluted ~$30M)
Revenue generation: Gold producer
Why

Has JORC resource of 500oz +

aiming for 25koz of gold production

have proved the gold production facility is up to standard

Director recently purchased $100k worth of stock

current margin at gold prices currently mean they should be generating as much cashflow as their market cap or more

other factors to consider
still early stages of mining so not a sure thing
catalyst will be if they can keep generating cashflow and operate efficiently at the costs they claim

speculative buy at current price
