The price of crude oil rose again last week. While Brent went out of trading on Friday at USD 85.45, the price for WTI stood at USD 81.53 per barrel. This could just be the beginning, as both Saudi Arabia and Russia have cut back production, which has tightened supply. In addition, US oil reserves fell by an unprecedented 17.1 million barrels, the most significant drop ever recorded. Only the downgrade of the US credit rating weighed a little on sentiment. But the risk that this will weigh on the economy seems small. The FED has let it be known that interest rates are not to rise for the time being, inflation is falling, and many company figures are above analysts' expectations. We, therefore, look at three oil producers that benefit from a rising oil price.Read

As expected, last week, the FED and the ECB raised interest rates by 0.25% each in an effort to further fight inflation. The US dollar also showed strength. These factors are typically considered negative signals for the gold price, yet gold futures recently rallied and are preparing to test the all-time high. What could be the reason for this? One possible explanation could be the meeting of BRICS countries in Johannesburg from August 22 to 24. There are rumors that the participants want to introduce a new gold-backed currency to compete with the US dollar. Such a move could drive the price of gold to unprecedented heights. Additionally, many central banks have been increasing their gold purchases recently.Read

Discovering stocks with high growth potential during difficult market periods is a challenging task. While there is no guarantee that a stock will double in value, certain factors can help identify companies with promising growth prospects. One effective approach is to focus on industries that offer growth opportunities even in adverse market conditions. Otherwise, examining fundamentals and ensuring the story fits the current spirit of the times is advisable. We have selected three possible doubling candidates.Read

The stock market is not a one-way street, so it happens time and again that companies that initially performed well run into problems, leading to falling prices. After an extended period of underperformance, bargain hunters often step in, seeking the right entry point to profit from a potential turnaround. One announcement can turn the tide and influence the price of a stock. We have selected three candidates where a turnaround could be imminent, provided an appropriate news catalyst exists.Read

The energy transition is a crucial step towards a sustainable energy supply. The storage of solar energy and the optimization of batteries for electric vehicles are important topics in this context. Vanadium can play a key role in these areas. The critical raw material is used in the battery industry as a cathode material in redox flow batteries, primarily for energy storage. Whether vanadium will also find its way into batteries for electric vehicles remains to be seen. Originally, the material was used as an important alloying metal in structural and tool steels to refine the steel.Read

In mid-June, there was a shortage of 470 prescription drugs in Germany, according to the Federal Institute for Drugs and Medical Devices. However, not only Germany is suffering from a shortage, but all of Europe. Once again, the dependence on China is the underlying cause. The EU is seeking countermeasures, but this will be challenging because capped prices, bureaucracy and rising energy costs make a location like Germany seem less attractive. At the same time, demographic change means that society needs the pharmaceutical industry more and more urgently. Therefore, we look at three companies that aim to heal sick people.Read

The energy transition has only just begun. The farewell to fossil fuels is a done deal. Alongside electrification, green hydrogen is expected to play a crucial role in the energy of the future, generated from renewable sources such as wind and solar power. Here, the infrastructure of tomorrow needs to be planned and implemented today. On July 12, the German transmission system operators presented their plan for a hydrogen network for Germany that is to cover a length of 11,200 km. In addition to connecting industrial sites, the plan also calls for the creation of a charging infrastructure for vehicles, as the transportation industry is primarily responsible for CO2 emissions. Investors who position themselves correctly early can profit from the upcoming hydrogen boom.Read

The automotive industry is facing a revolution as it focuses more and more on electric vehicles. However, better batteries are needed to meet market demands for range and charging time. Better storage options are important not only for electric vehicles but also for renewables. When green power is abundant, it must be stored to be ready at night. The development of more powerful batteries offers potential for investments with attractive returns. With that in mind, we take a look at a company that offers such solutions and analyze two automakers in more detail.Read

European industry is transforming, with the ban on combustion engines from 2035 being just one example. The energy transition is creating an increased need for critical materials and raw materials to make the changeover in industry possible. The European Commission has also recognized this and launched a Critical Raw Materials Act (CRMA). This is intended to optimize and diversify supplies. Recycling and research into resource efficiency are also on the agenda. We, therefore, look at three companies involved in critical raw materials.Read
