When the macro environment on the stock exchanges, including the sector situation, is stable or positive and individual stocks with intact growth prospects correct sharply, good opportunities can open up. If, in addition, the fundamental data fit and the chart technique does not contradict itself, the ingredients for a successful trade are present. We present three companies where an entry currently appears very tempting.Read

Electromobility is an important component of mobility concepts. To what extent other types of drive will overtake the electric car, or whether we will have to realize in 10 years that the whole topic was politically misguided, is another matter. The fact is that the demand for electric cars and batteries is growing enormously. The demand for the raw materials used in them, such as lithium and copper, is also increasing. We present three promising investments that reflect different facets of the investment trend.Read

Caught! As a reader of these lines, you must belong to the group of people who actively take care of their own investments. That makes us happy. Why not add shares to your portfolio that, as asset managers or investment companies, increase the money of others and, as a consequence, that of shareholders as well? We have brought you three exciting investment ideas that we believe are far from exhausted.Read

SYNLAB, PsyBio Therapeutics, BioNTech - A newcomer, an up-and-comer and a high-flyer in the big world of pharmaceuticals
Last Friday, laboratory services provider SYNLAB made its stock market debut but had difficulty convincing investors of the sustainability of its current order boom. It is not known whether the issue price led to depressive moods among existing shareholders. If it has, they could be helped by the LSD-related psychoactive ingredients of the American biotech pioneer PsyBio, which are expected to expand and improve treatment options for depression, anxiety and drug addiction in the future. For the BioNTech board members, there should be no risk of depression at present. Instead, one can assume that they are thinking about laying a direct line to a champagne producer. It would at least be deserved.Read

Those who make proper use of the cyclicality on the commodity markets can earn a lot of money. In addition, commodity types are abundant such as precious metals, oil & gas, industrial metals or the broad field of strategic metals and rare earth metals. Precious metals stocks currently offer many opportunities. Goldman Sachs forecasts a gold price of USD 2,000 for the second half of the year. Demand for silver significantly exceeds supply, which should also lead to a price increase in the coming months. Already a year ago, the US bank JP Morgan drew a very bullish scenario for oil and was correct. In the following, we present three yield boosters for your portfolio.Read

Every day, in our private and professional lives, we ask for products and services. And we expect "it" to work. When things do not go as planned for an extended period of time - and this does not necessarily mean a global pandemic that paralyzes supply chains - we feel the effects. In the following, we take a look at two areas that are essential for us: Energy and critical raw materials. We also have three pearls of return for your portfolio.Read

Orocobre, Goldseek Resources, First Majestic Silver - Falling interest rates and inflation fears boost commodity stocks
Interest rates on 10-year US Treasury bonds fell to 1.56% in April. At the same time, US inflation climbed to 2.6%, the highest level since March 2018. Typically, this is the time when investors seek salvation in commodities as an asset class. Gold, silver, and other precious metals such as palladium and titanium are in greater demand. But also rare metals, such as lithium or cobalt, are experiencing a substantial increase in demand due to the current energy transition and the switch to electric mobility. Below are two securities that everyone should have in their portfolio and one that is better avoided at the moment.Read

The future is electric. Battery electric, to be precise. A few years ago, there was still talk of a battle of the systems, i.e. diesel vs. hydrogen, battery vs. fuel cell, and this now seems to have been decided: the battery-electric drive has won the race - at least for the time being. However, one thing should not be underestimated: If everyone wanted to drive only battery-electric cars, there would have to be a massive expansion of the electric infrastructure with fast-charging options. And the problem of raw material supply should not be underestimated at the moment. Current battery productions still contain heaps of rare earths and metals, such as lithium, cobalt, lanthanum, etc. In the following, we present three companies that are likely to profit massively from the current e-mobility trends. So buckle up!Read

Stock indices at all-time highs, volatility falls, bitcoin falls, precious metal prices consolidate - with these few words, we can outline the mixed situation on the stock exchanges. However, the threat of inflation, rising interest rates and disappointments during the current reporting season due to very high expectations could lead to a jolting deterioration in sentiment on the stock markets. It is worth taking a look at the crisis currency gold and its little brother silver. A few days ago, the World Silver Institute published the study "World Silver Survey 2021" and reached an interesting conclusion. Based on the emerging demand and supply situation, a price level of USD 32 is forecast in the second half of the year.Read

Yamana Gold, Scottie Resources, Newmont Corporation - Is bitcoin weakness, inflation hikes and lower US yields sending prices flying?
With bitcoin plunging - yet again - last week, losing about 13%, and US inflation climbing to its highest level since March 2018, investors' eyes should increasingly turn to precious metals. In addition, lower US yields are making interest rates foregone more attractive again for gold holders. The gold price is bravely holding just below its 100-day line. Time for us to take a closer look at a few promising gold stocks. Who has the best performance chances?Read
