BP, Saturn Oil & Gas, Royal Dutch Shell - Oil stocks take off

  • Oil

Anyone who has to fill up their car at the moment will not be thrilled. Prices at gas stations rose in some cases to over EUR 2. The reason is the further rising oil price. An end to this trend is currently not in sight. Morgan Stanley analyst Martijn Rats raised his forecasts for the first quarter of 2022 to USD 95 and sees the oil price at USD 70 per barrel in the long term. Falling supply due to scaled-back investments is causing prices to rise. Due to climate protection and the targets set, investments in the development of new oil wells have been significantly reduced. In 2014 it was still USD 740 billion; 6 years later, it is only USD 350 billion. Oil producers are currently benefiting the most from this development, so we take a closer look at three companies.

Bitcoin Group, BIGG Digital Assets, Coinbase - Profiting from the new crypto hype

  • crypto

Bitcoin has reached a new all-time high and has pulled many other coins up with it. Currently, the hype around cryptocurrencies is not as big as it was at the beginning of May, but due to the new highs, people are increasingly looking at the crypto market again. The first experts are already calling out price targets of USD 100,000 for Bitcoin. According to market observers, the high price gains in bitcoin could be due to the ProShares Bitcoin Futures ETF launch, which recorded more than USD 1 billion in turnover on the first day of trading. Today, we analyze three companies that can benefit from crypto hype.

Bayer, Sativa Wellness Group, MorphoSys - Can the pharmaceutical industry benefit from the new German government?

  • Biotechnology

The federal election is over, and the pharmaceutical industry has to adjust to the new political constellation. The industry is facing change. Digitization is an important topic. To not lose even more researchers to foreign countries, approval processes must be accelerated and bureaucracy reduced. If we always acted as decisively as we did during the pandemic, much more could be achieved. The new federal government is flirting with the legalization of cannabis. If this were to happen, the market would probably be huge. The next four years promise to be exciting.

Rock Tech Lithium, Royal Helium, Gazprom - Commodities as a booster for the portfolio

  • Helium

Inflation is hitting with full force. Construction costs and energy prices are right at the forefront, which currently know only one direction: up. In the USA, the inflation rate was 5.4%, and in Germany, 4.1%. Winter is just around the corner and demand for heating oil, gas, and the like is rising, with no end in sight at the moment. If you want to hedge against rising prices, it is best to buy shares in producers that profit directly from price increases. Today we analyze three companies from the commodity sector.

Bayer, Water Ways Technologies, K+S - Will there be enough food for everyone in the future?

  • agritech

Humanity is growing and growing. In a few years, 10 billion people will populate the earth. The question then arises as to whether there will be enough food available in the future. One of the difficulties is climate change. If it gets hotter and hotter, less will grow, and if agricultural land becomes smaller, less food can be produced. To meet this challenge, yields on arable land must be increased. Fertilizers can help. Another critical factor will be water. Water is already scarce in some parts of the world, and drinking water is far from accessible to everyone everywhere. Today we analyze three companies that could play an important role in the future of food supply.

Alibaba, AdTiger, ProSiebenSat.1 Media - Christmas business makes the cash register ring in the advertising market

  • Digitization

Even before Corona, more and more people were shopping online, and the pandemic has further boosted this trend. Christmas is fast approaching, and this festival of gifts traditionally brings retailers the highest sales. Sitecore has learned from a survey that Christmas shopping will start earlier this year. When talking to local retailers, it is often heard that customers are nowhere near as abundant as they were before the pandemic. Corona rules or mask-wearing obviously bothers some consumers, and so they continue to turn to online shopping. The advertising market will grow significantly in the next two months, both online and offline. So today, we analyze three companies that are involved in advertising and e-commerce.

Allianz, wallstreet:online, Commerzbank - Quo vadis stock markets?

  • Investments

The markets are highly nervous at the moment. First, the Corona numbers went up again, then the Chinese real estate giant Evergrande was on the verge of collapse, and the supply chains are still not back in step. The result was falling indexes. That automatically leads to more fear, as the Fear and Greed Index also showed. Last week, the market calmed down slightly, and the fear index dropped from 27 to 34 points. In Germany, there is also the fact that more people have dabbled in equity investments due to a lack of interest rates. According to the Global Wealth Report, the purchase of securities grew by 65%. Many of the newly added shareholders know only rising stock markets. Consolidation would not hurt the market. On the other hand, there is hardly any alternative to investing money at the moment. It remains exciting.

Nel ASA, dynaCERT, Plug Power - Hydrogen is part of the energy turnaround

  • Hydrogen

If the upcoming German government wants to achieve the energy transition and banish all fossil fuels such as coal, oil and gas, part of the solution lies with hydrogen. On particularly sunny or windy days, some of the green electricity generated is simply lost. To avoid overloading the power lines, some of the electricity is given away abroad. Using this energy to produce green hydrogen would make the energy produced both storable and portable. If the price per kg of hydrogen could be reduced significantly, the greatest potential for this technology would automatically arise.

Valneva, Cardiol Therapeutics, BioNTech - New vaccines needed against Corona

  • Biotechnology

Johnson & Johnson's new study shows the booster vaccine improves protection against severe Corona disease by 75%. According to the New York Times, the Company plans to seek approval for the booster vaccine. While the FDA has already approved BioNTech's booster vaccine for those over 65, Moderna and Johnson & Johnson have yet to receive approvals. Those are on the agency's Oct. 14 and 15 meeting schedule. BioNTech CEO Ugur Sahin stressed to the Financial Times that there must always be new formulations to stop new virus variants.

BP, Almonty Industries, Standard Lithium - Which commodities offer the most potential?

  • Tungsten

Last Tuesday, the barrel of oil reached the USD 80 mark again for the first time since 2018, even though OPEC had recently increased production volumes. The discrepancy between supply and demand obviously could not be closed by the production increase. Comparing tungsten with gold, an investment in tungsten could beat gold by 70% since 2010. In the case of lithium, the price is also rising significantly. The automotive industry has decided to push ahead with its conversion to e-mobility in the interests of sustainability. So, the ambitious goal of charging only USD 100 per KWh of capacity in an e-car battery will not happen, making the price of e-cars much cheaper. Today, we take a look at three companies that produce these raw materials and analyze the potential.

JinkoSolar, Memiontec, Encavis - How to profit from the Federal election

  • Investments

Since the Federal election on September 26, it seems clear that the Greens will be in the government. Whether a traffic light or Jamaican coalition, without the Greens, only the GroKo remains, and that is as good as impossible with the CDU as a junior partner. Annalena Baerbock has already made it clear that her party wants to push through demands regarding sustainability. Germany will therefore have to increase its efforts once again. Renewable energies will continue to be promoted, while CO2 emissions will be penalized. This approach can be observed almost everywhere in the world. Reason enough to take a closer look at three companies that are committed to sustainability.

Deutsche Bank, Aspermont, Square - FinTech approaches promise a lot of potential

  • Fintech

For several years now, the FinTech sector has been gaining more and more attention. Digital bank Revolut entered its funding round with a valuation of USD 33 billion. If you compare this value with the market capitalizations of German banks, the valuations are far below FinTech bank, with EUR 23 billion for Deutsche Bank and EUR 6.9 billion for Commerzbank. So big profits can beckon for emerging FinTech companies. These companies no longer have as many staff as traditional banks, and even advisory services are taken over by electronic helpers these days. There is additional pressure on traditional banks due to the zero interest rate policy. So today, we look at three companies looking to expand their businesses in this direction.

Valneva, Defence Therapeutics, CureVac - Second-tier vaccine makers offer high potential

  • Biotechnology

The battle against the Coronavirus is still ongoing, although more and more people have been vaccinated with vector or mRNA vaccines. In Europe, an average of 60% of all people have received the vaccination. Herd immunity has not yet been achieved, in part because of vaccine skeptics who do not yet trust novel vaccines. New vaccines based on dead viruses promise to remedy the situation. This method has already been tried and tested in influenza vaccinations, for example. According to a study in Switzerland, about 70% of the unvaccinated would still be vaccinated if the method had already been tested. Herd immunity could thus be achieved, and everyday life could return to normal. So, which vaccine manufacturer that does not currently have an approved product could shake up the market?

Alibaba, Kainantu Resources, MorphoSys - The turnaround beckons here

  • Gold

A stock that has fallen sharply can offer the chance to make significant gains relatively quickly. Kostolany once said, "What seems cheap can become much cheaper". In other words, one should be wary of reaching for the falling knife. The shares that you have on your watch list as turnaround candidates should be monitored as closely as possible in order to strike at the right moment. The first thing to do after a stock crash is to wait for it to bottom out. To do this, one observes the Company's earnings position. In addition, the Company's story should fit, and entry should be sought using chart technology. Then nothing stands in the way of more considerable price gains. Today, we look at three companies that could be on the verge of a turnaround.

GSP Resource, Varta, Rio Tinto - The post-fossil age has begun

  • Copper

The phase-out of fossil fuels is already underway. If we want to do something for the climate, this step is unavoidable. The phase-out is to be offset either by nuclear power or renewable energies. In Germany, we are saying goodbye to both nuclear power and fossil fuels. At the same time, the introduction of renewable energies means that more metals are now needed. Whether silver, rare earths, nickel, cobalt or copper - these metals are necessary for technological progress. Copper, in particular, is essential for electrification, and demand is rising steadily. That is due to the growing sales of electric cars, for which more copper is needed than for combustion engines. Today we look at three companies that have a lot to do with copper.

Infineon, BrainChip, Nvidia - The chip shortage remains

  • Technology

The automotive industry was one of the first to feel the chip shortage. While supply chains typically operate on a just-in-time basis, they had ordered fewer chips due to the Corona Crisis. Then, when it was already too late, they realized that the economy was going unexpectedly well and the chips were running out. However, due to the pandemic, there were restrictions worldwide, so it was impossible to produce and deliver as usual. In addition, the Suez Canal was blocked, and, most recently, a port in China was also completely closed. The supply chains are still disrupted. At the same time, progress goes on and on. Artificial intelligence, cloud computing, autonomous driving, electrification and co. all require chips. Factories are running at full capacity, and yet demand cannot currently be met. Today we analyze three companies from the chip industry.

First Majestic Silver, Silver Viper, Millennial Lithium - Rally Ahead?

  • Silver

A rally in silver was already predicted at the end of last year. The reason was the corona-related 5.9% drop in production. It is the most significant decline in over 10 years, and thus there was a shortfall in supply. In addition, there is strong physical demand, which you can see well on Reddit if you search for "Silverbugs". There, people proudly present their hoarded silver stocks. Since the panic selling at the beginning of August, the price has already risen by 11%. High inflation could give the silver price a further boost. For lithium, on the other hand, the rally is already in full swing. The lithium carbonate price has more than doubled since the beginning of the year. We analyze three companies from these sectors today.

JinkoSolar, Defense Metals, Daimler - Sustainability only with rare earths

  • RareEarths

Rare earths are found in almost all new technologies such as smartphones, e-cars, etc. The leading supplier is China. Rare earths occur more often than one might think, but mining them is rarely economically profitable. Thus, China has a kind of monopoly position. With the trade dispute between the US and China brewing, more people realize that Western countries should seek alternative access to rare earths. If China limits exports, it would quickly lead to shortages. Accumulators or batteries would soon become scarce. Due to sustainability issues, the increased demand can already be seen in the increased prices for rare earths.

Bayer, Saturn Oil + Gas, TUI - Which share will be the first to take off?

  • Oil

We have often heard that the profit is in the purchase; however, it is difficult to predict the low of a share and then enter at that low. Often it is better to wait for a reversal using charting techniques, which increases the probability of finding a profitable trade. Those who buy falling knives have certainly suffered losses more often. But there are always stocks that are not "in" with investors, so it takes longer to get the share price going. Especially companies that have had problems in the past must first regain the trust of their shareholders. Today we analyze the prospects of three companies that have had problems in the past and want to take off.

5G will not only make our mobile internet faster, but it is also indispensable for bringing the Internet of Things, industrial automation and autonomous driving to market maturity. Private users can look forward to virtual realities and augmented realities in the future. Augmented realities can present the user with useful information about objects or even activities via glasses. There are already initial applications in this area, but the technology will develop rapidly in the coming years. The market will grow enormously once the 5G network is installed nationwide. In today's analysis, we show which companies could benefit from tomorrow's hype.

Central African Gold, Nordex, NIO - The potential of sustainability

  • Sustainability

The topic of sustainability is increasingly on people's minds. Five years ago, the subject was not even interesting to most. Now, more than 80% of people are thinking about it. Companies' customers spend more money if a product is sustainable; it is a sign of quality and gives them a positive image. If you use sustainable electricity and use resources sparingly, you can also save costs. All these are reasons why renewable energies and e-mobility are currently becoming more and more important.

Paion, Diamcor, DeFi Technologies - This is where the music plays

  • Diamonds

After the Fed announcements, the DAX and Dow moved sideways, despite a rise at the beginning of last week. Many stocks in these indices are now also considered fundamentally expensive if one follows the standard work of fundamental analysis by the Graham and Dodd Model, which roughly speaking sees a fair value for stocks with a price-earnings ratio of a maximum of 15. If you want to bring performance into your portfolio, you need stocks that are not in the direct focus of analysts. If there is an interesting story behind it, you can get a booster in your portfolio at an early stage. Today, we highlight three shares with interesting news and stories.

Deutsche Rohstoff, K+S, Royal Dutch Shell - Where to invest as fund managers cut equity exposure?

  • Oil

A look at the Global Fund Manager Survey conducted by Bank of America shows the views of Fund managers have changed significantly in the past month. Only 27% now expect the global economy to be strong, compared with almost twice as much optimism the previous month. One reason is the expectation that the FED will noticeably turn off its monetary tap at the end of the year. The money glut has sparked inflation, which can be seen clearly in commodity prices. All these are reasons why the cash quota in the funds is being increased, and the equity quota decreased. The high commodity prices are benefiting commodity producers in particular, which is why we are looking at three companies from this sector today.

ThyssenKrupp, Triumph Gold, Siemens Energy - Is the turnaround coming?

  • Gold

Despite galloping inflation, Jerome Powell took away the skepticism of market participants and assured them that an interest rate hike is still a long way off. The markets were delighted and have been rising ever since. But not all companies have seen their share prices rise. It is worth taking a closer look because many companies are fundamentally expensive. So one has to go bargain hunting. Often there are good reasons for lower share prices, but there are also hidden gems that want to be picked up. Today we take a look at three companies whose share prices are not getting off the ground.

Porsche, Blackrock Silver, Xiaomi - These stocks are making headway!

  • Silver

Last week, the stock markets were eagerly awaiting the statements of US Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell. His words reassured investors, as the tightening of the reins on the printing press is to be more gradual, and interest rate hikes are currently not an issue. From December, bond purchases are to be reduced by USD 15 billion. The US indices then rose again to near their all-time highs. But even without such events, which the whole world is watching, there are always stocks where exciting things are happening that can boost the stock market price. We are taking a closer look at three of these candidates today.

Alibaba, AdTiger, Baidu - Advertising market in digital transformation

  • Advertising

With the success of the Internet, there have been numerous shifts in analog advertising. Print sales are steadily declining because people are looking more and more to the Internet for information. Nowadays, younger people look more at their smartphones or tablets than at the TV. Efforts are being made to better integrate TV programming with content from the Internet because advertising is most profitable where people spend the most time. In Asia, in particular, companies are very progressive in the field of digital advertising. Therefore, we look at three companies from the Far East that have brought the advertising market to the Internet.

Nel ASA, dynaCERT, Steinhoff - Boost for the portfolio with turnaround candidates

  • Hydrogen

As the saying goes, the profit is in the purchase, but it is often not easy to determine the "bottom" on the stock market. Many factors need to be taken into account. First, there is the corporate sector and its sentiment. Is there fantasy? Is the market in trend? Then one should look at the fundamentals. Is there debt? Is the company making money? What is the sales growth, and what are the forecasts? After that, one can look at the varying analyst opinions and set up one's own rating system that awards points for different aspects. Using this checklist, one can quickly determine whether a company is attractive. In every portfolio there should be standard stocks, which make up the majority of the portfolio. A small part of the portfolio can be invested in speculative stocks, as they offer significant profits that can give the portfolio a boost. Today we take a closer look at three of these turnaround candidates.

Plug Power, Enapter, Ballard Power - What is the future of hydrogen?

  • Hydrogen

In the passenger car sector, the battle for hydrogen fuel cells seems lost, as the entire automotive industry is focusing on the production of e-cars. In the commercial vehicle sector, there is still hope for the hydrogen industry. The prerequisite for this, however, is inexpensive hydrogen, and this is not yet available. Promises of subsidies due to climate protection for the hydrogen sector should give a boost, but the extreme overvaluation built up in shares from the hydrogen sector up to the end of January has not yet been completely eroded in some cases. After the FED indicated in its latest minutes that it would abandon its loose monetary policy, uncertainty is spreading among many North American hydrogen companies. Today, we take a look at three hydrogen companies.

Barrick Gold, Desert Gold, K+S - Dark clouds everywhere?

  • Gold

Since the publication of the July minutes of the FED meeting, the indices have been going down. Investors do not like that the minutes held out the prospect of a possible end to the financial stimulus at the end of the year. The inflation rate in the US was 5.4%, as in the previous month, and currently remains high. Following the port closure in China, it can be assumed that supply chains will continue to be disrupted. In addition, the Delta variant is causing rising incidences. Therefore, the market is currently nervous and anticipates a possible correction. Gold is still popular as an inflation hedge. We look at three companies today and see if dark clouds are gathering there too.

Newmont, Sitka Gold, Royal Dutch Shell - Commodity prices to rise further

  • Gold

Research conducted in July with 1,000 European companies found that all respondents expect commodity prices to continue to rise. In part, these price increases we have seen over the past year are due to the Corona Pandemic. During the lockdown, production of raw materials was shut down, and when demand suddenly increased noticeably, they were not prepared for it. Supply chains are still disrupted today. But thanks to rising vaccination rates, the economy is picking up again in many parts of the world. Demand for oil remains high in the long term, and gold is still in its long-term uptrend despite the short-term sell-off.

While many companies have suffered greatly from the Corona pandemic, there are also a number of winners. First and foremost, vaccine manufacturers but also diagnostics companies experienced substantial growth rates in sales. Irrespective of Corona, it is increasingly crucial for the healthcare sector to push ahead with digitization, especially in diagnostics. Here, digitization offers the opportunity to significantly increase the quality and speed of diagnoses through artificial intelligence. Time, in particular, is an important factor here. Today, we take a closer look at three beneficiaries of the Corona Crisis.

Alibaba, Kainantu Resources, JinkoSolar - Asia as a global economic engine

  • Gold

Asia's influence on the global economy has been growing for years. On the one hand, as a sales market - Germany now transports 16% of its exports to Asia - on the other hand, its share of the world's gross domestic product is increasing. In 2019, 71% of global economic growth came from the Asia-Pacific region. Exports also contributed to this. Almost twice as much was exported to Germany in 2019 as ten years earlier. This year, economic growth in Asia will again be higher than in the rest of the world. This is primarily due to China. Today we are therefore highlighting three companies from the Asia-Pacific region.

Nel ASA, First Hydrogen, Plug Power - Hydrogen market awaits impetus

  • Hydrogen

Since sustainability and climate protection have come more and more into focus, the hype around hydrogen stocks has also been in full swing. This rally in almost all stocks continued until the end of January. Some of the company valuations were astronomically high. Since investors have been looking more at key figures, the share prices of hydrogen companies have been falling. The key objective is to lower the cost of hydrogen. That would make it economically viable, and the share prices of companies in the hydrogen market would rise significantly again. Currently, the market is waiting for impetus. A lot of funding is being made available in Europe and the USA for hydrogen development. Today we take a closer look at whether there is already impetus from the companies.

BYD, GSP Resource, Standard Lithium - Lithium hype, but do not forget copper

  • Copper

In recent weeks, real hype has broken out around lithium. It is said that lithium producers cannot adapt to demand so quickly. Due to the radical change of course in the automotive industry away from the combustion engine to the e-car, the demand for lithium will increase considerably. The price of lithium has already doubled from USD 5,000 to USD 10,000. It is expected that demand will increase by 300%. It should not be forgotten that copper is also essential for the switch to e-mobility. But it is not just in that sector that the demand for copper is increasing; worldwide, more and more people are gaining access to electricity. Today, we look at BYD, a manufacturer of e-vehicles, and two potential suppliers of copper and lithium.

Allianz, wallstreet:online, Commerzbank - DAX on the way to an all-time high?

  • Investments

Can anything at all shake the DAX? Neither the expansive monetary policy of the European Central Bank and the resulting inflation can slow down the DAX, nor Corona or the flood disaster. The IFO business climate or purchasing manager index also shows a positive picture. Looking to America, where most companies have already announced their figures, most have not disappointed. Currently, there is a stock market lull due to the summer months. September is statistically often the weakest month of the year. So one should be on guard. If there is a subsequent lockdown, the tide may turn - at least in the short term.

Alibaba, Memiontec, Tencent - China, the upcoming super economic power

  • Investments

China defied the pandemic in 2020. In contrast to all other industrialized nations, some of whose economies suffered considerable losses, China's economic growth increased. By 2028 at the latest, China will be the world's largest economy. Today, the country is already the leading trading partner for many countries, such as Germany, Japan and Australia. China used to copy Western products, but today it is on par technologically, both in terms of artificial intelligence and 5G. The Asian continent has other up-and-coming countries, such as Singapore. We should not forget Japan in particular, which is the third-largest economy. So we will take a look at three companies from the Asian region.

The Very Good Food Company, Amazon, Anheuser-Busch Inbev - Change in shopping behavior due to the pandemic

  • Investments

The Corona Crisis has changed the shopping behavior of people worldwide. On the one hand, there is a trend towards more online shopping; on the other hand, people are spending more money on higher-quality food, which in most cases is still bought locally. In Germany, this can be seen very clearly in a study by the Gfk market research institute. Discounters in Germany saw a 1.4% drop in sales in the first half of 2021, while supermarkets showed a 6.3% increase. Due to the pandemic, practically all special expenses such as restaurant visits, vacations, etc., fell away, and the money saved is invested in higher-quality products in the supermarket, among other things.

Barrick Gold, Theta Gold Mines, Rio Tinto - Gold picks up again

After the FED meeting, the gold price was able to gain significantly. Both the lower quoted bond yields and the weakening USD helped the gold price jump. The FED held out the prospect of reducing bond purchases but did not give a fixed date. Global gold demand has brightened significantly compared to previous quarters. Only jewelry demand is well below pre-Corona levels. On the other hand, Central banks have bought three times more gold than usual in the quarter, namely 200 tons. Gold could now soar to new highs.

BP, Saturn Oil + Gas, Gazprom - Oil companies offer great opportunities

  • Oil

The oil price came under pressure in mid-July following an OPEC meeting. Starting in August, production will be increased by 400,000 barrels per day. This arrangement is to apply initially until September 2022. From May 2022, the United Arab Emirates, Kuwait, Iraq, Saudi Arabia and Russia all want to increase their production capacities, which would mean additional production of around 1.6 million barrels per day. The price of crude oil subsequently slumped by around USD 10 to USD 65. However, the downward trend was already broken on July 20, and the price has since climbed back up to USD 72.

First Majestic Silver, Silver Viper, Fortuna Silver Mines - Is silver picking up again?

  • Silver

Inflation in the US climbed again in June, reaching 5.4%, the highest level since 2008. With the expansion of the money supply in the US, it is no wonder. The money supply also increased significantly in Europe. In some cases by EUR 50 billion in one week. Nevertheless, the inflation rate in Germany fell slightly to 2.3%. An end to money printing is not in sight. In contrast to gold, silver is a sought-after raw material in the industry. The price increase in precious metals has stopped since June, and there has been consolidation. It is only a matter of time when the price of silver will pick up again as inflation forces people to invest their money in assets. So today, we take a look at three silver stocks.

Nel ASA, dynaCERT, Plug Power - Investments in hydrogen increase worldwide

  • Hydrogen

Sustainability is a trend that is gaining more and more momentum. This can be seen well in the investments announced in the hydrogen sector. In February, members of the Hydrogen Council, which is made up of 109 global companies, wanted to put USD 80 billion into developing hydrogen projects. By July, that sum had increased by USD 70 billion to USD 150 billion. Europe is a frontrunner in hydrogen technology thanks to funding from the EU Commission's Important Projects of Common European Interest (IPCEI). According to McKinsey, it is only a matter of time before hydrogen is traded like all other commodities. Today we highlight three companies in the hydrogen segment.

QMines, Varta, Siemens Energy - Who benefits from the copper shortage?

  • Copper

The copper price has moved significantly upwards over the past year. On the one hand, this is due to the increasing demand caused by sustainability topics such as renewable energies, e-mobility and global electrification. On the other hand, the metal has become scarce. Whereas 60 profitable copper projects were launched in 2008, only 36 were established in 2020, and this with declining mining values. In 2015 0.65% copper per ton was still being mined; this value will fall to 0.55% by 2025. Existing large copper mines will also need billions in the coming years to maintain their production levels. These additional costs will be passed on to consumers. Today we highlight three companies that either produce or need copper.

BioNTech, Defence Therapeutics, Siemens Healthineers - Winning the fight against cancer

  • Biotechnology

There are over 200 different types of cancer where degenerate cells begin to form tumors. The cost of the disease is estimated at USD 1,160,000,000,000 worldwide. It is no wonder that a lot of money goes into researching cancer drugs. Whoever makes the breakthrough here can make a lot of money. It would be desirable that one of the three companies presented today could find a solution, as that could save 9.6 million people a year. But it is not only drugs that promise profits but also prevention and diagnostics. Today we highlight three companies that have joined the fight against cancer.

BYD, EuroSports Global, VW - Electric mobility booming

  • Electromobility

Automakers enjoyed their best first quarter in 10 years. One reason for this is the growing number of registered electric cars. If you compare the first quarter of 2020 in Germany with 2021, you can see an increase of 173% in the registration of e-cars, and there is no end in sight. However, more e-cars are not only being sold in Germany; but sales are also increasing worldwide. According to Handelsblatt, if the boom continues, there will be a shortage of millions of battery cells for production. The current industry leader, Tesla, still leads the ranking with the most e-cars delivered by brand, but the competition is catching up. Therefore, we take a look at three companies from the e-mobility segment.

Cardiol Therapeutics, CureVac, Bayer - Where is the journey heading?

  • Pharma

One might think that the pharmaceutical industry is the big winner of the Corona Crisis. However, according to a study by EY, this is not the case. Sales did increase by an average of 4.4% at the largest pharma companies, a much better result than in many other industries, but compared to 2019, growth actually fell by 8.4%. That is due to the postponement of medical treatments due to the Corona Crisis. The industry benefits from the ever-increasing number of elderly people worldwide and, at the same time, the development of new drugs. As a result, sales and profits have increased even during the crisis. We, therefore, highlight three companies from the pharma sector.

Aspermont, ProSiebenSat.1 Media, CLIQ Digital - profit from digitalization of media companies

  • Digitization

In Germany, according to a McKinsey study, just 10% of digital potential is being exploited. Anyone who thinks that it is developing sluggishly in Germany is wrong. According to the study, even if the US leads the way with big tech companies at 18%, the potential is far from being exhausted. Digitization has become enormously important for media companies, particularly as the young generation consumes up to 90% of its content via smartphones. 90% of this content comes from social media. As a traditional media company with print or TV content, it is increasingly difficult to reach the coveted target group. The only way is to dovetail traditional content with digital media. Today we focus on three media companies and how they are dealing with this challenge.

GSP Resource, Steinhoff, K+S - Commodities, gambler stocks and traditional companies

  • Commodities

Commodities have had a hard time finding lovers in recent years, and when the oil price turned negative in the wake of the Corona Crisis, hardly anyone would have expected such a revival. Despite the crisis, almost all commodity prices exploded. Another trend emerged as a result of the pandemic - the so-called meme stocks, where private investors meet on Reddit and pick a stock to buy, no matter what the fundamentals say. Traditional companies didn't have it easy during the crisis either, and many found that their business models were not crisis-proof. Today we have picked out three stocks that belong to the above mentioned divisions.

Mineworx Technologies, Nel ASA, Nordex - Recycling Capitalism the coming super trend?

  • Investments

It all started with recycling bottles and moved on to renewable energy and current ESG criteria and sustainability thinking. This way of thinking is catching on more and more. The number of vegetarians and vegans is growing steadily. Recently, single-use plastic products have been banned and are no longer allowed to be produced in the EU. Less raw materials should be used, and the products should be used as often as possible - think of car-sharing - and at the end of their life, the raw materials used should be recycled. In this way, the world could make do with its existing resources, and future generations would benefit. This new approach is also finding its way into several publicly traded companies, three of which we will look at today.

  • Commodities

As an investor, it is not easy to find suitable investments at the moment. Either the share has already run hot and the key figures no longer justify an investment, or the shares are struggling with some kind of crisis. In the end, these crises also bring opportunities, but you have to be well informed and patient. The low of a consolidation is seldom caught, but one or the other price trend can be predicted based on chart technology. We have taken a look at three companies today that are fraught with a certain amount of uncertainty but offer opportunities.

Freenet, Almonty Industries, Lufthansa - Setbacks offer entry opportunities

  • Tungsten

The stock markets have been on the rise for a long time, undoubtedly due to the loose monetary policy and the resulting inflation. Nevertheless, there is no hype as before the bursting of the dot-com bubble. Back then, people subscribed to Infineon and did not even know what the Company was doing. Despite Corona, the markets are higher than before the crisis, and the good news continues. In July, US President Biden is expected to launch his USD 1.2 trillion infrastructure package. Originally, more was planned. But this money will ultimately increase the corporate profits of the subsidized industries. The only important thing for investors is not to buy stocks at the high but to wait for consolidations to get in. That way, one increases the profit potential, and the stop loss is much smaller. Today we look at three companies that have recently suffered a setback.

SAP, Barsele Minerals, BioNTech - Shares have no alternative

  • Investments

The USA is expecting growth of 7% this year and Germany is expected to grow by 3.7%. This growth is above the currently expected inflation. As an investor, you should not be afraid of 2023, even if the FED wants to raise interest rates twice by then. One can confidently assume that interest rates will rise marginally from this historically low level, and that, in turn, is a sign of economies with growth prospects. In addition, the boom in equities could last much longer due to major changes such as e-mobility, climate neutrality and the like. In times of significant changes such as industrialization, there were long-lasting bull markets in equities. Since bonds are still hardly yielding any returns, equities remain highly attractive.

Alibaba, Blackrock Silver, First Majestic Silver - Why July 1 is so important

  • Silver

What is so special about July 1? On that day, the Chinese Communist Party will celebrate its 100th anniversary. It is common knowledge that the Chinese government plays by its rules. If someone violates these rules, appropriate measures are taken. The ever-increasing price of raw materials is not at all to the taste of the Chinese, who are known to have a great need for raw materials. Without further ado, the Chinese announced that they would soon release strategic state reserves of various metals, which initially led to the consolidation of some commodities. Chinese companies are also currently very cautious, as no one wants to disrupt the July 1 celebration. After the celebration, the reins could loosen a bit.

Carnavale Resources, Rio Tinto, TotalEnergies - Commodities still in hype

  • Commodities

Commodities are in demand, as seen from the Bloomberg Commodity Index, which reached a multi-year high on June 11. Among other things, this is due to China's enormous hunger for raw materials and the infrastructure program of the USA. Inflation fears also drive more investors to commodities, as there is no end in sight to the loose monetary policy. In addition, there is a rethinking of climate protection, giving rise to hypes such as hydrogen or e-mobility. These new technologies require raw materials such as copper or nickel, and so commodity prices are picking up significantly in almost all sectors. That's why we are taking a look at three exciting commodity companies today.

Commerzbank, wallstreet:online, Volkswagen - What is the German stock market doing?

  • Investments

Last Friday, there was the so-called witches' Sabbath, and the DAX fell by over 300 points, but by Monday, the buyers returned. All signs point to economic recovery, also in the USA. The FED has announced that it does not intend to raise interest rates before 2023, despite inflation significantly higher than Germany. The European Central Bank has not yet announced anything about raising interest rates. They are trying to keep the economy going, and Mr. Draghi had tried to fan inflation for a long time but failed at the time. The ECB would undoubtedly like to see inflation of 2-3% over a more extended period, and that makes investing in stocks or other tangible assets still attractive.

Royal Dutch Shell, Sierra Growth, Nel ASA - Stocks with increased profit opportunities

  • Investments

Since the markets have been climbing incessantly, it is not easy to find exciting stocks with potential. Most of the time, the ratios are already much too high, such as the price-earnings ratio (P/E) or the price-sales ratio (P/S). It is crucial to quickly detect new trends and get in on time before the party is over. In the coming week, an important date is coming up for the large US big tech companies. The House Judiciary Committee will vote on some anti-trust legislation. As a result, tech stocks should be cautious. Today we have picked out three stocks where we think profit opportunities are particularly promising.

Kodiak Copper, Deutsche Telekom, Varta - What is going on in commodities?

  • Copper

The hype around wood lasted until May 25, after which the rally ended and the price consolidated by a whopping 40%. Gold was trading above USD 1,900 last week. In parallel to this article's writing, the price is below USD 1,800. A minus of about 5.5% within five days, and the industrial metal for electrification and copper, dropped by 8%. Currently, all factors speak for a further increase in commodity prices. Real interest rates are still negative, and inflation should also remain high. The Fed could not help calm the markets, although interest rate hikes were not announced until 2023. However, the Fed intends to continue its bond purchases. Consolidation can always occur after strong increases, and so we will see long-term rising commodity prices, especially for precious metals and copper.

Barrick Gold, Triumph Gold, Bayer - is a golden summer coming?

  • Gold

An old stock market adage says: Sell in May and go away. In German: Sell your positions; in summer, the market will consolidate. There was a slight correction at the beginning of May, but the DAX has been climbing since then. It is currently trying to reach the 16,000 point mark. The price of gold recently traded above USD 1,900 for the first time again, which can certainly be understood as a sign that investors want to secure their money from inflation. While the US Federal Reserve emphasized that it does not want to take any countermeasures for the time being, the US Treasury Secretary Yellen recently surprised with the statement that higher interest rates would be good for the United States. It remains exciting. There is the possibility of a golden summer on the markets.

Plug Power, Troilus Gold, TUI - Step on the gas pedal

  • Gold

While the G7 summit agreed almost unnoticed on global taxes to make the big tech companies pay in the respective countries where they made profits, this news practically did not interest the markets at all. On the one hand, this may be because the introduction will still take years; on the other hand, such news takes a while until it has penetrated fully. Currently, one should therefore exercise a little caution with the large tech stocks. Today, we have picked three companies independent of this and whose share prices should rise in the near future, spurred by good news.

BP, Royal Helium, Gazprom - Boosters for the Portfolio

  • Helium

Inflation is here. In the USA 4.2%, in Germany 2.5%. Meanwhile, it may be doubted that these values are of a short-term nature. Commodity prices have been rising for some time, and some craftsmen in Germany are switching to short-time work because they can no longer obtain materials or only at horrendous prices. Inflation means nothing else than a loss of value of money. So, where is the best place to invest at the moment? Dividends would be nice; ideally, more than 3% and additional price gains in stocks would be even nicer. We have picked out three stocks that we think are suitable inflation protectors.

Markets are at their all-time highs and even if many cannot comprehend it, I guess you have to get used to it.

  • Gold

I pointed out the double bottom in gold in one of my earlier articles, and since then, the price has risen over USD 200. Interestingly, the buy-side consists mainly of young investors up to 25 years old. According to research from several online brokers, they own 39% of gold - 3 years ago, it was only 26%. This percentage is three times higher than in the overall population. Inflows into physically deposited gold ETFs amounted to nearly 34 tons. Driven by inflation fears and political tensions, gold is enjoying a renewed revival. We take a look at three gold stocks today.

But increasing efficiency and making quick decisions alone will not help. Ideally, business models should be checked for resilience early enough and not just when the tree is on fire.

Steinhoff, Osino Resources, Barrick Gold - From gambler stocks to gold pearls

  • Gold

What is the best way to invest your money? Opinions are divided on this question. Some want to make a quick profit and are prepared to accept significant losses to do so. But this path is psychologically complex for most people to cope with. Then there are the growth-oriented ones, who are willing to take calculable risks and make bigger profits. The last group invests conservatively and wants to build up a passive income over the long term through dividends. They shy away from risk. In line with this categorization, we have picked out 3 stocks today, taking into account the title of the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung: Has the commodity super cycle begun?

  • Commodities

Commodity prices continue to soar. If we compare the first quarter of 2021 with 2020, we can assume an average price increase of 36.7%. As the raw materials market is currently unable to respond quickly enough to the high demand in many countries, prices are rising. An end to this spiral is currently not foreseeable, as more and more countries are slowly getting to grips with the Corona pandemic. Thus the demand for raw materials will continue to grow. We have picked out three exciting companies from the commodities sector today.

BYD, Nevada Copper, AT&T - Nothing works without copper

  • Copper

More and more people worldwide have access to electricity. The electrification of the world is progressing and this requires copper - the non-precious metal that conducts electricity best. Copper was one of the most widely used industrial metals even before the advent of renewable energies and e-mobility. It is found in consumer goods such as air conditioners, telephones and everything around power grids. Increased sales of e-cars are also increasing demand for the "red gold" here, as more copper is needed for these than in conventional passenger cars. Added to this is the charging infrastructure for e-cars, which still has to be built nationwide. Demand will certainly not decrease, but since the supply is not growing at the same time, rising prices are the result.

Until mid-January, the shares of hydrogen companies knew only one direction, and that was steeply upwards. With just one or two negative news pieces, such as the balance sheet adjustments at Plug Power, and the prices went into a downward spiral. The environment could hardly be better.

Jinkosolar, Almonty Industries, ThyssenKrupp - Commodity and energy prices still rising

  • Tungsten

Last week, a 4.2% inflation rate for consumer products was reported in the USA, which caused a correction in the markets. Construction prices rose by up to 70% in some cases. The Federal Statistical Office in Germany currently assumes inflation of 2%. However, there is already a partial shortage of chips for the automotive industry, wood is being imported expensively from Ukraine, and there is also a shortage of supplier parts in other sectors. One should strongly assume that inflation will be higher. Energy prices also rose by a good 27% last year. The long cold winter will cause prices to increase further there as well. To protect against inflation, investors should focus on quality stocks of companies that manufacture products and benefit from such bull markets in the long term. We present three attractive candidates today.

At the moment, the topic of reopening is hotly debated in stock market circles. It is about stocks that either have some catch-up potential after the Corona Crisis or benefited greatly from the pandemic and could now come under pressure with the return of public life. Because of the lockdown, many people had much less exercise because they stopped exercising or, in some cases, even stopped walking to work. During this time, many people have focused on eating healthier to still stay in shape. Many people are happy when the clubs, bars and restaurants open again. So today, we are going to take a look at three stocks in the food sector.

Physical assets are an option investors should consider if they want to protect their money. However, investors should be very careful not to equate or even confuse inflation protection with expected returns when it comes to assets. In this regard, today, we would like to take a closer look at the conservative gold and the more speculative bitcoin. While gold was able to break free from the consolidation last Friday and should now continue to rise, bitcoin has not yet been able to close the gap between April 16 and 19. However, the upward trend in Bitcoin is intact. Today we present attractive paper investments in these asset classes.

Kodiak Copper, BASF, Varta - Copper study ignored

  • Copper

The International Copper Study Group (ICSG) sees a slight oversupply of the copper market in 2021 and 2022. The main reason for this is said to be dwindling Chinese demand. The demand is decreasing because China is expanding mine production and copper refining by about 3% each. After the study's publication, the price per ton of copper rose again to over USD 10,000. Possibly driven by the news from Chile, which produced 2.2% less copper than last year. Similar news can be heard from other major copper producing countries such as Peru. Copper concentrate supply is low at the moment. We, therefore, look at one copper explorer, one copper producer and one consumer.

Defense Metals, Daimler, Siemens Energy: Rare earths facing a new hype?

  • RareEarths

In 2010, the first hype about rare earths occurred. Even then, it was apparent that digital technology would not be able to do without rare earths. As a result, shares of mining companies increased in price by up to 1,000%.
Currently, there is a lot of talk about e-mobility causing raw material resources to become scarcer. However, the talk is mainly about copper, nickel, lithium and perhaps silver. Rare earths are mostly forgotten, although they are used in many electronic devices, fighter jets and wind turbines.
China controls 80% of the world market and, according to media reports, is considering restricting exports of rare earths. Doing so could have a significant impact on all industries that require rare earths.

Amazon, Blackrock Silver, BYD - Growth, growth, growth!

  • Silver

Despite the pandemic, there is growth everywhere - but why? Looking for the answer to this question, one comes more and more often to the answer that there are hardly any alternatives. Cryptocurrencies are more for the younger generation. Then there are still precious metals, where prices are only slowly picking up, and there are bonds.
However, bonds have become entirely unattractive in the course of the money glut, so the only option left, especially for institutional investors, is to reach for shares. The billions from the bond market thus flow into the stock markets and ensure new highs despite the pandemic.
So you should invest your money in high-growth stocks. Based on this premise, we have taken a look at three promising candidates.

Nvidia, NSJ Gold, Coinbase - How to counter inflationary pressures?

  • Investments

Historically, tangible assets have performed poorly compared to equity investments. According to a Bank of America study, that may now be starting to change. The constant printing of money is fueling inflation. Tangible assets such as real estate, precious metals or collectibles are suitable as a hedge against inflation. While the first two categories are self-explanatory, there are new categories, especially in collectibles. The familiar areas are wine and art objects. Recent additions are cryptocurrencies, first and foremost Bitcoin, of course. In the course of this hype, high-performance graphics cards have also become rare. These are now traded at more than double the recommended retail price. So today, we take a look at Nvidia, NSJ Gold and Coinbase.

First Majestic, Silver Viper, Nordex: Silver only at the beginning?

  • Silver

The printing presses keep running and that fuels the fear of inflation. The precious metal silver is currently showing strength, even against gold. Why is that? Silver has always been an important raw material for industry, but since the hype around e-mobility and renewable energies, more is needed. There are also initial successes reported in the use of silver in rechargeable batteries. At the University of California San Diego, a silver oxide-zinc battery has been developed that has 5-10 times the power of a lithium-ion battery. The manufacturing process is inexpensive and scalable. The automotive industry alone projects a 40% increase in silver demand by 2025, an excellent reason to take a closer look at stocks in these sectors.

VW, Silkroad Nickel, E.ON - Mega electricity storage, the next big thing

  • Nickel

We all want clean electricity. Currently, we face the problem that some of the sustainable electricity "disappears" unused. The reason is that we cannot store it and so, hours of Gigawatt electricity go to waste.
Extensive electricity storage facilities are needed, such as the 300 megawatts Tesla has built in California. What hardly anyone knows - Tesla is planning the same mega electricity storage sales in the long term as its car division. In Germany, STEAG also wants to build a mega electricity storage facility with 250 megawatts, expanding to 500 megawatts. We, therefore, look at three stocks from this sector: VW, Silkroad Nickel and E.ON.

According to a study by the World Economic Forum, USD 500 billion was invested in renewable energy worldwide in 2020. The study compared 115 countries and the experts conclude that all 10 leading economies have improved environmentally, specifically in carbon in the energy mix. Leading the way are Sweden, Norway and Denmark. Germany ranks 18th, mainly because of its coal-fired power plants.
The electrification of the world is also progressing; 400 million people have gained access to electricity since 2010. Despite all the developments in renewables, around 80% of the world's energy is still generated from fossil fuels. In this context, today, we take a look at stocks from the energy sector.
