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.

Varta, Deutsche Rohstoff, JinkoSolar: World Economic Forum praises climate investments

  • Investments

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.

Kleos Space, SAP, TUI - Companies on the move

  • Investments

The Corona pandemic continues to keep the world on tenterhooks. Nevertheless, the S&P jumped a good 8% within three weeks. How should you currently set up your portfolio? That is the question. Many stocks are at their all-time highs and have had real rallies. If you want to protect yourself from a setback, you have to anticipate trends and find stocks that are either broad enough or ones that can promptly score with good news. Preferably both. If these candidates are then also at all-time highs, there is potential. We highlight three interesting companies.

Plug Power, Desert Gold, Bayer - Shares with opportunities despite all-time highs?

Almost all indices are near their all-time highs. No wonder, given the expansive monetary policy and the associated inflation expectations. Commodity prices, in particular, are seeing a sharp rise. Thursday, gold was able to break the resistance area at USD 1,750. Despite this positive environment, however, some stocks are far from their all-time high. We will take a closer look at these today.

SunMirror, 88 Energy, Gazprom - Commodity prices pick up

  • Commodities

US oil reserves are shrinking, and at the same time, demand forecasts are being revised upward by OPEC and the International Energy Agency. The reason for this is the assumption that the Corona pandemic will calm down in the current year and will ultimately lead to an increase in global oil demand.
In general, commodity prices are picking up on the expectation of an economic recovery. Thus, gold has also left the lows of 2 weeks ago and is currently struggling to break the critical USD 1,750 mark. The first attempt was rejected.

Barrick, BP, Scottie Resources - Commodities cannot be printed

  • Commodities

Last week was dominated by FED Chairman Jerome Powell's speech at the IMF. Powell reiterated that inflation, which had been a concern for some investors in the short term, was under control and not a cause for concern. He attributed inflationary pressures primarily to higher commodity prices. After all, you cannot print commodities - unlike paper money. For this reason, we will take a look at commodity stocks today.
