Alibaba, Hong Lai Huat, Xiaomi - Asian stocks catching up?

  • Investments

The year 2021 was often a year to forget for investors in the Asian region. Chinese stocks, in particular, suffered from government regulation, causing many stocks to plummet despite good numbers. After the dip in 2020 due to the Corona pandemic, the economy made significant gains, but this rapid growth will not continue so quickly in 2022. Nevertheless, the first investors are sensing a trend reversal due to the discrepancy in stock market developments. While the US stock market climbed strongly in 2021, the Hang Seng fell 13% plus. There has not been such a difference since the Asian crisis. We take a look at three interesting shares from the Asian region.

Lufthansa, Prospect Ridge Resources, S&T - Profits beckon here

  • Gold

2022 is beginning like 2021 - Corona is still the number one topic. Despite the pandemic, one can draw hope from the past year because, despite all adversities, the shares have, in part, made very decent gains. Now, with Omicron, endemicity seems possible. The virus is more contagious, but the course is milder than the previous variants. Infection could bring about the herd immunity that has long been longed for. In addition to Corona, however, one must also keep an eye on inflation. It has been taking hold since mid-2021 and will continue to occupy us in 2022. The question on all investors' minds is: where do the gains beckon in the coming year? Today, we highlight three possible winners.

Gazprom, Almonty Industries, Standard Lithium - Investing in commodities with high demand

  • Tungsten

2021 was the year of skyrocketing commodity prices. Many different factors played a role. One, of course, was the Corona pandemic, which caused many companies to cut back on production. As the economy recovered faster than expected, markets were undersupplied. In addition, there were supply chain difficulties, natural disasters, and export restrictions, and this is where some of the dependencies on China became apparent. Currently, too little magnesium is being produced because the Middle Kingdom is suffering from electricity shortages. Today we look at three commodity producers for which we expect demand to remain high in 2022.

Bayer, Memiontec, Deutsche Telekom - With blue chips through inflation

  • Technology

When inflation rates started to rise in the USA and Germany, all sides initially said this phenomenon was temporary. In the meantime, it has become clear that the experts were wrong. Inflation has come to stay and brings inflation rates we have not seen for decades. In November, it was 5.2% in Germany. Typically, it would be the ECB's job to control inflation, but its hands are tied because of the interest rate problem. That leaves investors with the question of how best to protect their money. One option is to look at blue chips, three of which we will examine in more detail today.

Standard Lithium, Manganese X Energy, Daimler Truck - The future of the battery

  • Electromobility

Electric cars would never have existed with the conventional lead-acid batteries popularly used in remote controls and the like. The development only became possible with the invention of lithium-ion batteries, which can be charged much more often and thus significantly increase battery life. The advantage of electric mobility is emission-free driving. The disadvantage is longer refueling times, shorter range and the need for lithium and other rare raw materials, such as manganese. It is precisely the batteries that make electromobility so expensive. It is not for nothing that Tesla is trying to push the price down to under USD 100 per kilowatt-hour. Experts expect that the prices of internal combustion and e-cars will then converge.

TeamViewer, Aspermont, ProSiebenSat.1 Media - Digital business models booming

  • Digitization

The Corona Crisis has shown that digital business models are booming, whereas conventional business models suffered from the lockdown. If you want to look at it positively, the crisis has led to a digitalization push and new business models. Restaurants suddenly switched to online ordering, seminars are held online, and virtual trade shows are also on the rise. On the stock market, too, some companies are increasingly focusing on digitized business models. Today we take a closer look at three of them.

Tesla, Altech Advanced Materials, BYD - The battle for the battery of the future

  • Electromobility

Since climate change has become the focus of public attention, the goal of many countries is to reduce emissions. The transportation sector is the second-largest CO2 emitter; this includes motor vehicles. E-cars still cost significantly more than the conventional combustion engine because their batteries are still so expensive. Called out are costs under USD 100 per kilowatt-hour to bring the two vehicles together in price. Many different battery manufacturers are trying to improve the battery. Ideally, more energy can be stored, promising more range, the lifespan should be increased, and the batteries should become safer. Today, we look at three companies that have already made it a good bit of the way.

Infineon, BrainChip, Nvidia - The chip market remains hot

  • Technology

First and foremost, the automotive sector suffered from a lack of chips in 2021. Blaming everything on Corona alone is too short-sighted. The pandemic is certainly a factor, but the rapid economic recovery caught companies off guard. Added to this was digitization, partly also pandemic-related, which boosted demand for semiconductors more than the already high structural semiconductor demand. A few weather-related production stoppages and disrupted supply chains later, the situation was as it currently stands. Intel does not expect the situation to slowly calm down until 2023. Reason enough to take a look at three chip manufacturers.

Varta, Nevada Copper, JinkoSolar - Copper in desperate demand

  • Copper

The world is changing. Efforts are increasingly being made to protect the climate, and entire branches of industry are being converted as a result. The energy industry is increasingly relying on renewable energies, and the automotive industry has proclaimed the end of the combustion engine. The new technologies emerging, as a result, require a wide variety of raw materials, but above all, copper. Demand will increase faster than supply can be expanded. The result - rising copper prices. Not for nothing has this raw material been called the red gold. The coming years promise to be exciting on the copper market.

Kodiak Copper, Nordex, BYD - Are raw materials becoming scarce?

  • Copper

The Institute of the German Economy has presented a study on the raw material situation of the Bavarian economy. However, it can be assumed that the results will also apply to the rest of the world. As a result of the new technologies currently finding their way into the automotive industry, the demand for certain raw materials increases significantly. A total of 22 commodities are considered very risky. Copper is only ranked 23rd, but the study underlines the importance of the raw material for electrification in many areas of industry. If demand continues to grow strongly, there is a procurement risk for the German industry - a good reason to take a look at three companies that operate with copper.
