Since the beginning of the Corona Pandemic, economic life has tended to shift from the offline to the online world. The winners of this trend are e-commerce service providers, such as Amazon and HelloFresh, and above all the operators of online brokerage platforms. This phenomenon affects not only Europe, but also the USA. The shares of these companies have been able to increase significantly since March 2020, and with a new generation of stock market winners, the trend can continue for a long time to come.Read

The price of gold has stabilized above the USD 1,900.00 per troy ounce mark in recent weeks. Against the background that the Corona Pandemic is not slowing down and that a second wave is becoming measurable in many places, the actions taken by governments and central banks are continuing cheerfully, thus ensuring further demand for the world's oldest currency. Those who want to protect their assets are probably best off buying shares in a gold company like Warren Buffett, and for those who can't decide, there is also a solution.Read

Last Friday, rumors led to an 185% rise in the shares of Canadian exploration company Giga Metals. According to several sources, Tesla plans to purchase nickel and cobalt from this company in British Columbia in the future. The main reason for this is that Giga Metals will be able to operate the mine with hydroelectric power. In addition, environmental regulations in Canada are among the strictest in the world. Against this background, Tesla is able to improve its own CO2 footprint. A sensible and overdue step that hopefully will be imitated.Read

The Giga Metals stock closed Friday with a 184.5% gain, providing investors with a pleasant surprise at the end of the week. Behind this rise in the share price is the rumor that the U.S. carmaker Tesla wants to purchase part of its nickel and cobalt requirements for the production of batteries from environmentally friendly sources in the future. Not only does Giga Metals have large quantities of these raw materials, but it also has potential access to hydroelectric energy to make its mining environmentally friendly. By sourcing from Canada, Tesla would have the opportunity to reduce its own carbon footprint.Read

Anyone working in the medical sector knows that the development of therapies and products usually costs a lot of time and especially a lot of money. In the race against the spread of the current Corona pandemic, there are major changes in the industry, because whoever comes to the market with a product first is de facto guaranteed high sales and profits. However, there is not much time left for the development of a vaccine against Covid-19 and to reduce the economic damage, researching companies have virtually unlimited amounts of money available. Whoever finds a solution against Covid-19 will certainly have the right team in the starting blocks in the fight against the subsequent Corona viruses.Read

If the shares of the U.S. company Apple fluctuate, then the impact on market capitalization may well amount to the entire equivalent value of the fourth-largest DAX company, Allianz. Apple's market value is around EUR 1,640 billion, and against this, Germany's insurance giant, at around EUR 75 billion, looks like a delicate little plant. There are various reasons for this, which lie beyond the objective or fundamental valuation. For one thing, more German investors buy the shares of U.S. companies than the other way around, and moreover, premium smartphones and tablets are simply more exciting for the younger generation of investors than insurance policies. From this perspective, healthy diversification makes perfect sense.Read

In times of the Corona Pandemic, many companies have learned the limits of their resilience. There are winners and losers as well as market participants who have not experienced any changes. When the panic in the markets was at its peak in March 2020, the price of gold was also on a downward trend. A few months later, the symbolic USD 2,000.00 mark was already exceeded. The measures taken by the central banks are leading to different developments in the various sectors of economic life and investors can benefit from this.Read

Discoveries and innovations drive share prices on the stock markets. Yes, the more sustainable the success, the greater the increase in value for shareholders. It is therefore hardly surprising that changes and developments in everyday economic life mean that old names can disappear and be replaced by new companies. Apart from the oldest currency in the world, nothing is for eternity. Whether the historical investment approach: "buy and hold" is still valid today depends, as always, on the company.Read

As is well known, the future is traded on the stock exchange and for this reason investors are always looking for the right time to start a new investment. It can be political decisions or new technological trends that cause sales and profits to soar.

Since mid-March 2020, the peak of the Corona panic on the world's stock markets, many share prices have more than recovered. But there are also some companies that still have potential or are waiting to be rediscovered.Read
