Copper is considered a leading indicator of the economy. The red metal is built into almost all electrical products and is needed in many industries. If we compare the spot price of copper with the futures, we can see that the premium per metric ton has increased significantly. This is matched by the fact that China imported 8.1% more copper through August, despite the country's Zero-COVID strategy. In contrast, Chile, one of the largest copper producers, exported less than last year. So supply remains tight, partly due to demand from Europe, which is significantly expanding renewables. So today, we look at three companies around copper.Read

That is Warren Buffet's motto, and the Oracle of Omaha has done very well with it over the past decades. In the biggest crises, the investor always made a bold move, while others waited rigidly in fear. This could also be observed during the last Corona Crash. Many waited for lower prices, or at least a retest of the lows, which never came. At the moment, it seems to be the case again that no one wants to buy shares, and this is precisely where the opportunity lies. No one can predict the exact low, but if you want to be there, you have to get in at some point. We look at three companies that have great potential.Read

There was a lot of news relevant to the oil price in September. Earlier in the month, Gazprom announced it would no longer send gas through Nord Stream 1 due to an oil leak. Shortly thereafter, the G7 countries decided on a price cap for Russian oil to take effect in December. OPEC announced on September 5 that it would cut production. The reason given was fear of an economic slowdown. The EU also decided on various measures to cope with the energy shortage, including a solidarity contribution by companies for fossil fuels to support socially vulnerable households. Even though the oil price has softened somewhat recently due to recession fears, the seasonalities show that the price will likely pick up again in December. Winter is creating additional demand for oil.Read

On Wednesday, September 21, the FED is expected to raise interest rates again. After the poor inflation rates in the past week, the fear of a large interest rate step of 100 basis points is going around. The indices reacted immediately and priced in the possible rate hike. So did the gold price, which has been suffering from rising interest rates and the strong dollar for weeks anyway. It does not help that gold has long been considered a hedge against inflation. The precious metal cannot currently take on this function, but that could change if the expectation of Stanley Druckenmiller, a billionaire and former hedge fund manager, is correct that the stock markets will hardly yield any returns in the next 10 years. So today, we look at three gold companies.Read

Since September 8, the DAX has gained over 700 points despite inflation, a halt in Russian gas supplies and fears of recession. Inflation was 7.9% in August. The ECB's interest rate hike seems to have reassured many investors. The question remains whether the indices will again move to new highs. The S&P has broken its downward trend channel on a daily basis. No uptrend has been formed yet, but as long as the last lows are not broken again, it will continue to go up according to the chart technique. We therefore take a look at three companies that were recently sold off strongly and see whether there could be a sustainable rebound.Read

The stock market environment for growth stocks has clouded over significantly. Rising inflation, growing interest rates and fears of a recession are causing uncertainty among investors. If, as many experts suspect, inflation is significantly curbed in 2023, the headwind for growth stocks should ease. The first investors are already speculating on this. They are taking advantage of the opportunity to add growth stocks to their portfolios, which will then take off again in the future. As an investor, it is important to ask yourself whether you are prepared to hold a stock for at least 10 years. After all, it often takes a long time to become a stock market star that generates high profits. Today we look at three companies that have what it takes to bring joy to their shareholders in the future.Read

Many people are currently suffering from high energy costs, which are also affecting companies. Some of their products are becoming significantly more expensive as a result. Added to this is the smoldering trade conflict between the USA and China. Most recently, Nvidia was no longer allowed to export two of its chips to China. China and Russia are rich in raw materials and, in some cases, have a monopoly. There are already many critical metals whose demand can currently only be met by China. The most important of these are rare earths, over 90% of which are processed in China. The EU and the US are trying to become more independent but are encountering new problems. The critical metals industry urgently needs new skilled workers. In many companies, experienced engineers have long since reached retirement age. There is an acute need for action here.Read

Since all car companies have entered the e-mobility market, the demand for batteries for electric vehicles has skyrocketed. An all-out battle has broken out for the components needed for this, which is reflected above all in the price of lithium. While the price was around USD 5,000 per ton at the end of 2020, it was most recently quotes around USD 73,000. Experts even consider further price increases up to USD 100,000 possible because demand is significantly higher than supply. The German Federal Institute for Geosciences and Natural Resources also comes to this conclusion. The lithium market promises to remain exciting in the coming years. Therefore, today we look at three companies along the value chain.Read

Fears of a recession have recently pushed the markets down again. Those who want to bet on crisis-proof investments should look at biotech stocks. The world population is growing, people are getting older, and in line with age, more diseases are appearing. This trend will continue in the coming years. Therefore, the prospects for success in this sector are excellent. One cannot cut corners on health. Since September 2021, shares of biotech companies have also consolidated strongly. In some cases, shares appear severely undervalued. Today, we look at three interesting companies in the biotech sector.Read

August 26 was another black Friday on the stock markets. All indices suffered heavy losses. The reason was the speech by US Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell, in which he declared the FED's intention to let interest rates rise further to fight inflation. That, in turn, puts the ECB under pressure because the strength of the US dollar ensures rising export figures, but at the same time, everything within the EU is more expensive that has to be paid in USD. For example, the gold price also came under immediate pressure on Friday. It is a good time to look at second-tier stocks, which have been under a lot of pressure lately and are therefore cheap. We look at the strengths and weaknesses of three interesting stocks.Read
