Always assess your position in oil & gas and gold investments. A fresh look at four small cap companies.

Natural resources are currently enjoying a revival in the eyes of investors, particularly in these times of high market volatility.

While gold and precious metals have long been seen as safe haven assets for a diversified investment portfolio during uncertain times, today’s technology development is shaping the mining industry in new ways, creating increased demand for base metals as well as enabling lower impact and more eco-friendly mining practices.

On October 16th, Cassiopeia hosted the latest edition of its Investor Symposium at a new venue, the central London private members’ club Home Grown, a favourite hub for entrepreneurs of the investment community.

Angelos Damaskos opening the cassiopeia Investor Symposium 2019

Angelos Damaskos, CEO of Sector Investment Managers, opened the evening by, outlining why he believes the bullion market is entering a bull run. Sharing invaluable insights on gold and precious metals

For Angelos, there are three main factors heating up the precious metals sector: geopolitics and political tensions; the macroeconomic forces showing slowdown in global economic growth, particularly in China; and central banks’ policy changes of interest rate cuts. These are beneficial factors for investments in gold and silver, which are unlikely to change in the near future given the current global climate.

Angelos also recommends that investors look at small-cap mining companies: “the growth engines of the industry with prospective assets” as they hold assets that could yield great future value. He also added that any diversified investment portfolio should have a strong allocation of precious metals.

According to Bloomberg, bullion — precious metals in the forms of bars, ingots or coins — has risen 16%, driven by the boosting demand for safe haven assets. James Steel, Chief Precious Metals Analyst at HSBC Securities (USA) Inc. expects a year-end price of $1,555/oz, end-2020 at $1,605.

In the metals space, our symposium welcomed the presentation by IMC Exploration Group (LSE:IMC), a junior mining explorer recently listed on the London Stock Exchange. IMC focuses on the exploration of gold and base metals in high-impact prospecting licences in Ireland. As well as developing the work at its licences in the North Wexford Gold Project PL where IMC had previously encountered gold grades yielding 354g/t Au respectively in their licence area PL 2551, the company has recently been awarded an MRE for the spoils and tailings project in Avoca, Co. Wicklow with a gold estimate alone coming in at almost 20,000 ozs. The Board believes that the scale of the opportunity at Avoca is transformational for IMC and its shareholders, a sentiment also validated by the company’s recent partnership with the world renowned, Trinity College Dublin, whose Raw Materials Research Group has chosen IMC’s Avoca projects for studies and analysis.

Also in mining, we heard from St Georges Eco-Mining (CSE:SX), a Canadian-listed company focused on base metals and eco-mining. St Georges’ strategy is to leverage on its new lithium technologies to make mining more sustainable, involving less waste and fewer chemicals. In addition, the company has completed a transaction for its Canada-based gold project Kings of The North with the London-listed entity BWA Group and is itself looking to enter the London space soon.

Aside from metals, the Cassiopeia symposium hosted two handpicked oil & gas companies, as the energy sector remains highly active, particularly among independent companies which can deliver potential huge gains to those prepared to research their investments.

The respected Oil & gas ‘Guru’ and advisor, Zac Phillips, presented on behalf of Union Jack Oil (AIM:UJO), one of the most promising Oil & Gas exploration companies currently among small and mid-cap companies. Over the last year, Union Jack has performed to such an extent that it’s on the cusp of delivering a Major UK Onshore O&G discovery at West Newton ̶described by stock picker Michael Walters as a billion dollar well. UJO are also targeting yet another hugely potential significant Oil Play at their Biscathorpe prospect and are confident on their planning permission application to start production at their Wressle interest with initial oil production of 500 bbls/d (gross). The Planning Inspectorate Inquiry commences 5 November 2019.

“A year ago, we had a market cap of £5m and now UJO has a market cap of £25m — this shows the significant progress and excellent projects that UJO has,” said Executive Chairman David Bramhill.

Last but not least, junior oil producer Zenith Energy (LON:ZEN) updated investors on their portfolio of assets in Azerbaijan and Italy vis-à-vis their recent progress. Zenith successfully listed on the London stock exchange early last year and hit the ground running with oil producing assets in Azerbaijan. Since then, it has progressed its operations significantly, increasing the bopd aiming to achieve their management target of 1,000 bopd. Zenith is the only listed junior company to own a drilling rig, which assures continuity for work and wells.

The Symposium was attended by over 60 private investors who had the opportunity to ask the management teams direct questions during the presentations, as well as during the post-presentation networking session.

Stefania Barbaglio, founder and director of Cassiopeia Services said: “It has been a productive evening. We’re committed to improving communications and dialogue between companies and shareholders as a key element of their decision making. It’s all about having the right information. The trading world is rife with speculation and misleading information, so a key step in successful investing is to make informed decisions about the companies and projects you want to engage with.

I can never stress enough how important it is for investors to actively engage with the companies they invest in. This is what our symposia are about: Creating opportunities for investors/shareholders to research, network and establish connections with the management teams running the companies they invest in”

FINANCIAL FOX : BLOCKCHAIN, DIGITAL ASSETS, BIG DATA AND MARKETS- WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW !

FINANCIAL FOX : BLOCKCHAIN, DIGITAL ASSETS, BIG DATA AND MARKETS- WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW !

The internet era as we know it really started in the early 2000’s, riding on the wave of the first high-processing computers.

The dawn of the internet has not only brought advances to society but has also ushered in a digital revolution that is still transforming how the world operates. With people getting more comfortable with the technology almost 20 years later, there’s now a plethora of use cases offered by high-performance devices. DLT, blockchain, digital assets, big data and AI are the new disruptive elements in today’s digital revolution.

AI and Blockchain are becoming more seamlessly integrated and enhanced each day and their use in various applications is changing the world as we know it.

Automated ledgers have already started to replace manual book keeping methods, the implications of which have already made waves in the fintech industry: Banks and other financial authorities sent ripples through to experiment with blockchain to upgrade their business models and offer greater ease operability to their consumers; investors are (gradually/tentatively) venturing away from traditional assets towards crypto assets; and Big Data has become the new oil, with data security and privacy a major issue to be grappled with.

In the upcoming Financial Fox, Founder Stefania Barbaglio will be hosting a special programme Everything you need to know about Blockchain, Digital assets, Big Data and Markets, focusing on the technology revolution and its implications. Distributed ledger technologies like blockchain are currently transforming industries and revolutionising the ways companies and governments operate. Decentralised applications and smart contracts are being used more and more across a variety of use cases for businesses, governments, individuals and even IoT devices.

FINANCIAL FOX : EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW SERIES ( PART 1 )

This exclusive Financial Fox episode will welcome four forward-thinking experts in the technology field. Part One will see Stefania speak with Jean-Philippe Beaudet, Director and CTO of Canada based Zeu Crypto Networks and James Bennet, CEO of Byte Tree. Both Jean-Philippe and James have been recognised for their immense contribution to the blockchain and digital assets space.

Jean-Philippe Beaudet, Director & CTO Zeu Crypto Networks

Jean-Philippe Beaudet is an experienced gaming developer who has researched natural language processing for Luminary, a private American research lab. Cultivating an interest in machine learning and decentralised technology led him to co-found S3R3NITY Technologies, a technology incubator from which he launched numerous start-ups. He was an early enthusiast of blockchain technology and contributed to major projects such as a Bitcoin brokerage platform and a marketing data analytics tool for financial institutions. Identifying the opportunity to marry blockchain technology with artificial intelligence to meet the need for a decentralised data market, he founded VN3T. He is also the President and Chairman of VSEKUR. He is an advisor on multiple blockchain initiatives and a regular conference speaker.

James Bennet, CEO Byte Tree

“James moved into the crypto-asset space in early 2017 after completing a financial management program at General Electric. Initially working as an independent consultant, he founded crypto-asset consultancy Bitassist, where he worked on a number of high-profile projects. James is currently the CEO of on-chain analytics platform ByteTree, where he leads the product development and commercialisation of the ByteTree investor terminal.”

FINANCIAL FOX : EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW SERIES ( PART 2)

Part Two will have more emphasis on blockchains, digital assets and their impacts on the markets in a conversation between Stefania; Michele Curtoni, VP, State Street’s Digital Product Development and DLT team; and Pietro Lanza, General Manager at Intesa, IBM.

Michele Curtoni is VP in State Street’s Digital Product Development and DLT team. Prior to this role, he was manager and strategy leader for LSEG Emerging Technologies group. Michele currently focuses on working in the Distributed Ledger Technology (DLT) and Digital Assets space, a field he has been active in for the past 4 years. In his roles to date, Michele has covered many aspects of the innovation cycle, from working on implementing business applications and proof of concepts with emerging technologies, to start-ups and wider Fintech space engagement. For over four years, he also held a central role in LSEG Group Strategy division, overseeing several of the Group’s high profile acquisitions and corporate partnerships as well as other Group strategic initiatives. Michele holds an MSc from the University of Warwick in Economics and International Financial Economics (EIFE).

Wise investments in times of market uncertainty

Market volatility is the phrase of our times. Geopolitical tensions, global economic slowdown and calls for new social orders have been shaking up markets all around the world. Global currencies, currently driven down by complex international affairs, are the main factor affecting market dynamics. In the UK, questions around Brexit and turbulent domestic politics have been the primary movers of sterling in recent months. A combination of all these factors is likely to keep markets volatile for the foreseeable future.

Uncertainty is constantly plaguing the investment world, with market downturns occurring frequently. However, it is important to remember that market setbacks are typically followed by recoveries and, when managed wisely, can represent opportunities rather than pitfalls. Investors who position themselves to take advantage of these movements can even benefit from uncertainty and volatility.

Investment trading can seem like a daunting task at times like this. In the latest episode of Cassiopeia Tv Channel FinancialFox, IR specialist Stefania Barbaglio interviews Angelos Damaskos, CEO and Investment Adviser at London-based Sector Investment Managers Limited, to talk about how best to navigate the waves of uncertain markets and the best investment options in the current situation.

Angelos is indeed very familiar with the investment world. Before setting up Sector Investment Managers Ltd, Angelos had 14 years’ investment banking experience with major banks in London, concentrating on natural resources. For 10 years, he was responsible for structuring the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development’s equity and debt investments in commodities, oil transport, food processing and retail projects in Russia, Ukraine and the Balkans. He also managed a portfolio of EBRD assets in the Balkans, Russia, Ukraine and Central Asia, including corporate restructuring and debt recovery.

The Oil & Gas market is transforming

The energy market is being re-shaped by pushes for renewable energy and concerns about climate change. Alternative energy sources have gained prominence in the market, while more traditional methods are losing their share.

It is undeniable that the oil market has suffered a downturn over the years as the economy moves away from fossil fuels, with the boom in US shale production in 2014 pushing prices down and leading to a difficult recovery. While Angelos believes that there are attractive oil and gas opportunities still to be explored in Latin America, West Africa, and Oceania, he says the global outlook for the oil market remains uncertain.

While the future may seem dubious for oil prospects, gas is increasingly gaining the spotlight in the UK’s energy mix. Because of its properties, gas is a more appealing source. There are some interesting UK companies focusing on gas operations and serving the domestic energy demand.

From Full Fact, 2018

Precious metals are the best investment

In terms of opportunities in volatile markets, Angelos is confident that precious metals are the soundest options. Exposure to precious metals is important to safeguard your investment in times of slower economic growth, especially in China and other emerging markets.

Angelos is positive about prospects for gold: “I have been a long-time bull for the gold price.” The main catalyst for gold price rises is geopolitics, says Angelos, as gold is seen as an important alternative investment to equities and a safe haven asset.

The role of gold in the current turbulent scenario should not under-estimated. Analysis of gold performance shows that it holds major importance at times of global currency unpredictability, often the direct result of political battles and fragile macroeconomic climates. Last week, gold prices performed well, amid European recession risks arising from US tariffs imposed on the EU and more tensions in the ongoing US-China Trade war. Gold is likely to remain with further gains in this scenario.

Bloomberg chart showing gold-backed ETF growth

Angelos is also bullish on other precious metals, especially silver, which follows the uptrend of gold and goes even higher, showing more upside potential: “When gold is on the uptrends, silver trends to outperform it.” Orchid Research is expecting a ‘strong’ rebound for silver in October, according to Kitco News.

Of the base metals, which are crucial elements in the supply chain for technology products and gadgets, Angelos says copper is the most important, and one to watch. Copper is versatile and has many applications across various industries, although the slowdown in the Chinese economy could bring a negative effect to its market.

His valuable advice for investors: “A very sensible, well diversified portfolio should have strong allocation to safe haven assets, particularly gold and silver. It should also have some exposure to senior miners, with solid operations with long-standing records of production, as well as exposure to junior companies that are growing in the industry, because these are the companies that control the assets that will be the future supply of the commodity market.”

Cassiopeia Services does not offer investment advice. It is very important to obtain professional advice when seeking investment opportunities. Each individual circumstance requires a specific plan that suits the investor’s needs and profile.

Investing in Cannabis: Stocks to watch

Last week, the European Commission and the European Medicines Agency (EMA) announced the approval of the first cannabis-based medicine for childhood epilepsy, which is expected to become available in the UK soon.

Figures from GlobalData Retail estimate that the regulated UK market will be worth £1.6bn over 2019, and will generate almost £490.4m for the country. The European market as a whole is due to grow 400% over the next four years, says the Brightfield Group. The cannabis market is growing fast in many countries around the world, especially as cannabis-based medicinal products become more widely available. It is clear that this growth is set to continue in the near future.

Specialists forecast that the UK cannabis market will increase in size over the coming years. Daragh Anglim, Managing Director at the cannabis consultancy Prohibition Partners, told the FT that last year’s legalisation of medicinal cannabis ‘breaks the stigma’ and that he expects the UK market to open up to recreational use within three to five years. Prohibition Partners says the UK cannabis markets could be worth £16.5bn in the next 10 years.

Stefania Barbaglio, Founder and Director of Cassiopeia Services, an Investor Relations company working closely with cannabis projects says: “The cannabis market, specifically medicinal cannabis and its derivatives, are among the hottest trends for investors to watch. The market is still at an early stage, with many opportunities for returns in the medium and long run, and we can expect more exciting news to unfold within this space in the coming months. There is a growing movement to destigmatise the use of cannabis for therapeutic purposes, which is reflected directly in the inflow of companies and investments in this sector in the stock market.”

With the opportunities brewing and more cannabis companies landing in the market, Cassiopeia has selected a few cannabis stocks for investors to take note of and watch out for as the market blooms in the UK and Europe:

Stocks on the London Stock Exchange:

You’re growing fast or being bought and when you need to grow fast it’s much easier to do it as a public company — the London Stock Exchange gives you that added value.”

Sunrise Resources (SRES) is a natural resources company working to generate profits from the growing cannabis market. Sunrise has signed an agreement to lease a grinding and mineral processing plant near to its CS Pozzolan-Perlite project in Nevada, USA.

In this edition, former SP Angel oil & gas analyst and director at O&G Advisors, Zac Phillips, and gold fund manager Angelos Damaskos, will join for more insight on the markets.

Oil & Gas

Oil & Gas stocks are a must in any investment portfolio. In 2018, oil production increased nearly 9% from 2017, hitting the highest UK oil production rate since 2011. In 2019, UK oil and gas upstream investment is expected to witness a projected 4% increase.

Additionally, gas is increasingly becoming a primary source of energy for the UK. Last year, natural gas represented nearly 40% of UK’s primary energy usage, up on the previous year.

Zac Phillips, the well-known Director of Oil Gas Advisors and former SP Angel analyst, will be talking to investors about this space.

Union Jack Oil (UJO): One of the hottest stocks on the London AIM market in 2019 is small-cap Union Jack Oil. UJO caught investors’ attention this summer with the discovery of the West Newton project, which represents one of the largest onshore discoveries in the UK. Evaluation of the West Newton project showed a significant oil and gas discovery rather than a pure gas discovery as originally perceived. The UJO company also operates several other assets, among the biggest being the Biscathorpe and Wressle wells, both holding considerable potential and set to generate encouraging results in 2020.

Zenith Energy (ZEN) is a company operating the largest onshore oilfield in Azerbaijan in partnership with SOCAR, as well as nine natural gas assets in Italy. Listed on both the Canadian TSX Venture and the London Stock Exchange Main Market, Zenith’s strategy is to acquire and develop assets with untapped reserves and existing production. By the close of 2020, Zenith plans to achieve a production target of 3,000 bopd. The Company owns a fleet of 3 rigs, comprised of a 1,200hp drilling rig and two workover rigs.

Gold & Metals

it’s highly likely that they are already watching gold market as it has been growing stronger in the past weeks, especially in India, where gold prices have hit a record high. The forecast is set to continue positively, a trend which could be attributed to uncertainties in the global market, which favours the market for gold and precious metals as store of value.

Mixed economic data, persisting trade worries, Brexit uncertainty and the loose monetary policy stance of central banks are some of the factors specialists predict will push the price of gold up. Angelos Damaskos, CEO of Sector Investments and mining analyst will be sharing his views on gold and metal trends.

St Georges Mining (SX) Established in 2009, St Georges is a Canadian company, focused on mining activities and developing new technologies to solve today’s biggest environmental and energy problems. St Georges develops metal processing technologies which can be deployed to reduce the environmental impact of mining operation, while improving profitability and the financial bottom line of current base metals producers. St Georges has a diverse portfolio of mining projects including assets in Iceland and Canada, where it explores minerals and metals including gold, copper and zinc but also lithium and nickel, which power new technologies.

IMC Exploration (IMC) the newly listed Ireland-based mining exploration company IMC focuses on gold and base metals. IMC is well positioned to deliver value to its shareholders building on its resource potential and portfolio, which holds 6 prospecting licences on the east coast of Ireland. Three of the licences are aimed at targeting an area in Ireland which is considered to have high grade gold. The other two licences are operating in Tailings and Spoils Avoca, which has seen great results along with a recently acquired CPR.
