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.Read

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.Read

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.Read

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.Read

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.Read

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.Read

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.Read

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.Read

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.Read

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.Read
