Luis de Guindos, Vice-President of the European Central Bank (ECB), presented the semi-annual stability report this morning. In view of the continuing economic weakness and extremely low interest rates in the eurozone, the ECB warns of the dangers to the stability of the financial system. High debt levels and budget deficits in some eurozone countries could once again come to the fore in the market. Low interest rates also increased the willingness of investment and pension funds and insurers to take risks in order to generate returns on risky transactions. Unexpected price corrections in investments can thus have consequences for the entire financial system.Read

The largest listed companies around the globe have been experiencing brisk demand for their shares for several years in connection with the interest rate policy of the ECB and the Fed. On the one hand investors invest directly in the shares of these companies due to their high tradability, but on the other hand the market share of passively managed products such as ETFs and certificates is growing. People are looking less and less into the balance sheets of small cap stocks. In view of the fact that this year's German Equity Forum will take place in Frankfurt next week, interested institutional investors, analysts and journalists will again have the opportunity to talk intensively about business development with decision-makers from listed small cap companies.Read

The value of a company is usually calculated by multiplying the number of shares by the share price. So-called market capitalization says more about the value of the company than just the share price. There are different customs and rules in different countries. In Germany, for example, the value of a share must always be at least EUR 1.00 when it is founded or in connection with a capital increase. This is different for companies in the Netherlands, Norway or Canada, for example, and against this background so-called penny stocks from these countries, i.e. shares with a price of 0 before the decimal point, can be quite interesting.Read

As a result of the costly rebuild, the Daimler Group is using the red pen at Mercedes-Benz. 10% of the management level will be dismissed - i.e. around 1,100 people. CEO Ola Källenius will give a concrete account of the savings in his presentation and aims to reduce personnel costs by more than EUR 1 billion by 2022. While Stuttgart is in a crisis mood, Berlin-Brandenburg seems to be in a champagne mood, as Elon Musk had announced the construction of a Gigafactory in the region. Ironically, Tesla would no longer exist without the help of Daimler.Read

The intake of medicines by humans and animals is also not without its consequences and so drug residues are increasingly becoming a problem. But where there are problems, new business opportunities also arise.Read
