Nico Popp

  • Small-Caps

At home in Southern Germany, the passionate stock exchange expert has been accompanying the capital markets for about twenty years. With a soft spot for smaller companies, he is constantly on the lookout for exciting investment stories. That it depends thereby less on large names, but on the future potential and whether the market also recognizes these perspectives, was one of its first learnings at the stock exchange.

On these pages, Nico examines current events at listed companies and takes a closer look at companies that are traded under the radar of the market, in addition to well-known securities.

In order to be able to take advantage of speculative opportunities on the stock exchange, Nico not only focuses on a balanced asset allocation of defensive and opportunity-oriented securities, but also on an intact risk management. "In addition to position size and entry in several tranches, investors should also develop a sense of timing and get to know a stock better before investing," says the columnist.

TUI, Diamcor Mining, Varta: Luxury that pays off

  • Diamonds

A luxurious trip? A sporty electric coupé or perhaps timelessly beautiful jewelry? There are many ways to indulge in luxury. Some are enduring, and some are rather clumsy consumption. But even when it comes to luxury, there is no arguing about matters of taste. However, it is easier to argue when it comes to investments in companies that benefit to a greater or lesser extent from the penchant for luxury. We discuss three shares.

Plug Power, Central African Gold, Newmont: The best of both worlds

  • Gold

The risk appetite is back! Especially in the past week, shares around hydrogen and electromobility have climbed rapidly again. Even hydrogen stocks of the first hour were again kissed awake by the market. We highlight Plug Power, one such share, and list shares that tech-savvy investors can add to their portfolios.

Royal Dutch Shell, MAS Gold, Barrick Gold: Remedies for inflation and crisis

  • Gold

Inflation rates dwarf everything, and any buyer or tradesman has to think back a long time before he can draw a historical comparison with the current situation. However, many economists still appear relaxed: They say that the situation around fragile supply chains and scarce goods will ease next spring. Employment, which is still below pre-Corona levels today, is also expected to pick up speed then. But what if it doesn't?

BYD, dynaCERT, Daimler: Alternative drives are flying again

  • Hydrogen

Trends and moods are sometimes decisive on the stock market: Even a proven future technology has to lose ground when the investor crowd moves on to another industry or prefers to watch the markets from the sidelines. That is what has happened in recent months concerning electromobility and hydrogen. Even big names like BYD and Tesla corrected. However, things have been on the up again for a few days now. We explain where opportunities could lie now.

BioNTech, Cardiol Therapeutics, Bayer: Where triple-digit returns beckon

  • Biotechnology

The pandemic is drawing to a close. Vaccination rates are high, and a new wave is - fortunately - not picking up speed. But in this environment, what is happening to many highly acclaimed pandemic stocks? Are vaccine manufacturers still interesting at the moment? We look at how the industry is faring and where opportunities can still be found.

MorphoSys, Sativa Wellness Group, CureVac: Healthcare investments of tomorrow

  • Healthcare

The healthcare sector is facing a reassessment. For years, especially in Germany, health care has been "fiddled with" - a reform here, a change there, but in basic terms, little has changed in the system in recent years. With the new federal government, things could start to move. Regardless of ideological trench warfare, observers can state, especially under the impression of the pandemic, that innovative treatment methods and preventive care are the most important trends for the future, along with the digitization of the healthcare system. In this context, we present three companies and highlight their opportunities.

ThyssenKrupp, Graphano Energy, BYD: The hype returns

  • graphite

Prices are rising and the economy is booming. Supply chains are not yet running smoothly again, meaning that many basic materials are expensive. But the signs for rising raw material prices are also good in the long term: New technology is driving demand, both for entirely new applications such as batteries and for infrastructure. Buildings, bridges, wind turbines - all of these will remain a topic for years to come. We present three stocks that could benefit from these developments.

Rock Tech Lithium, Manganese X Energy, Daimler: E-mobility takes off on the stock market

  • Electromobility

The bull market is here to stay. Although standard stocks are still bobbing along, speculative stocks are picking up speed. That suggests that the risk appetite of investors has not yet been satisfied. In addition, events in future-oriented sectors, such as electromobility, are coming thick and fast. Most recently, both Millennial Lithium and Neo Lithium were taken over. The Canadian-German Company Rock Tech Lithium is becoming a neighbor of Tesla in Brandenburg. Which stocks are the next winners?

How to invest when prices are galloping and disruptive fires are increasing? Many investors will opt for blue chips. Indeed, large corporations with steady and stable cash flows offer an opportunity, especially in times of inflation. But which stocks are specifically suitable?

Adler Group, Barsele Minerals, Deutsche Telekom: Everything is at stake

  • Gold

The real estate market in China is shaky. A European real estate company has been the subject of speculation recently. Hedge funds have accused the Luxembourg Company Adler Group of irregularities. Is this the beginning of a bear market? Is the next crisis looming? Or will everything turn out all right in the end? We take a look at three exciting stocks of the moment.

Varta, Enapter, NEL: Where hydrogen pays off directly

  • Hydrogen

It is turnaround time! Never before in history will so much be changing as in the next five years. The energy turnaround is switching our supply to renewable energy sources and new storage options, and the mobility turnaround will ensure that electric motors will soon dominate the roads. Although it is clear where the journey is headed, shares based on the new technology offer highly diverse opportunities. We take a look at three stocks.

China Evergrande, Triumph Gold, Gazprom: Investing in uncertain times

  • Gold

In September, inflation in Germany climbed by 4.1% for the year. Compared with the previous month, prices remained constant. Despite this, more and more people are sounding the alarm bells. Whether in construction, the skilled trades or the auto industry, scarce goods are additionally fueling prices, and now there is also the energy shortage in China - the workbench of the world. Here is how investors can invest in uncertain times and which stocks they are better off avoiding.

JinkoSolar, Silver Viper, Volkswagen: The time is ripe

  • Silver

Observers call silver the precious metal of the energy transition. Why? Silver is in solar plants, sensors for wind turbines, electric cars and infrastructure for 5G. The latter mobile communications standard is needed to make many devices smart and is thus also a mosaic of the energy transition. We present three stocks that are directly or indirectly related to silver.

Alphabet, Water Ways Technologies, TOMRA Systems: Return on investment with clean water and sustainability

  • Sustainability

Clean water is a human right for a reason. When precious water is polluted, diseases spread. Children and the elderly in particular suffer from water pollution. Geo-strategists are even expecting armed conflicts over water. For example, when huge rivers, which are often the lifelines of entire continents, become polluted and countries downstream suffer. We present three stocks that have something to do with water.

SAP, Kleos Space, Facebook: Invest in data treasures

  • Technology

Data is the raw material of the 21st century. Whether it is real estate usage data, people's habits, or even their sleep - if you can analyze data on a large scale, you can tailor products and services precisely to your customers. That makes for greater business success. So it is no wonder that companies that collect data are willing to pay for it. We present three stocks that are well-positioned around data and the digital future.

NEL, GSP Resource, China Evergrande: How to find the doublers

  • Copper

Speculative investments are the salt in the soup on the stock market. Of course, those who rely on ETFs and funds over the long term via a savings plan can already do a lot better than the vast majority of savers. However, those who develop a good knack for speculative individual stocks can give their portfolio a growth kick. Even if many newcomers to the stock market can hardly believe it: 100% and more is possible. Using three stocks as examples, we explain what is important and what is not a good prerequisite for investment.

ProSiebenSat.1, wallstreet:online, FlatexDEGIRO: Investing in the power of the media

  • Investments

When Sebastien Thill of Moldovan Champions League participant Sheriff Tiraspol scored the 2-1 winning goal against Real Madrid at the time-honored Bernabeu Stadium a few days ago, the euphoria knew no bounds. When Thill glanced at his smartphone in the hours after the final whistle, the Luxembourger must have been amazed once again: He had received hundreds of messages via social media. The example of the footballer, who was largely unknown until a few days ago, vividly illustrates the power of the media. Just a few seconds in the spotlight are enough to draw millions of people's attention to a topic. The three companies we are presenting today show that money can also be made from this phenomenon.

BIGG Digital Assets: When a growth machine goes mainstream

  • crypto

When new technology catches on, regulation tends to lag behind. In the financial sector, the relevant authorities must approve new products or processes. Otherwise, investors quickly find themselves operating in a gray area. Blockchain technology and cryptocurrencies have been experiencing increasing regulation for several years. Nerds and activists of the first hour fear the independence of the currencies, and investors see the chance for new investment opportunities. In some cases, crypto is already considered a new asset class today. Canadian blockchain company BIGG Digital Assets received welcome news from Canadian regulators today. Netcoins, BIGG's wholly-owned subsidiary, became a regulated crypto exchange in Canada today. This makes BIGG Digital Assets the only listed Company in Canada to offer access to a regulated trading venue for digital currencies based on blockchain technology. So what does this mean for the stock?

Infineon, AdTiger, Alibaba: China as a huge comeback opportunity

  • Digitization

Digital business models have enormous advantages. One of the most important trump cards is scaling. Once a digital product is established on the market, more and more customers can acquire it without much effort. While classic industrial products depend on new factories, digital players simply buy in computing or storage capacity and serve the new demand at lightning speed. We have selected three exciting stocks related to digitalization.

Nordex, TalkPool, Varta: Where things could soon be looking up again

  • Technology

Technology is changing our lives. Anyone who builds a house today thinks along the lines of sensors and networked control units. Thermostats can be used to create a pleasant indoor climate and save energy at the same time. Even windows can be equipped with sensors. Not to mention the endless possibilities for home security. The private sector is thus experiencing what has already begun in industry under the buzzword Industry 4.0. Since this trend is far from over, it is worth taking a closer look at companies around digital and sustainable technologies.

Rheinmetall, Almonty Industries, Siemens Healthineers: Here the signs point to growth

  • Tungsten

In 2019, the world's nations spent a whopping USD 1917 billion on armaments. That is more than they have spent since 1988, stresses the Stockholm-based International Peace Research Institute. Germany increased its spending more than any other country in the process. The incidents in Afghanistan have shown that it is of great importance to be able to act if one wants to play a role on the international stage. The pandemic shows that health can also take on a global dimension. Here, too, experts expect rising expenditures. Reason enough to take a closer look at well-known representatives of both sectors.

Intel, BrainChip, AMD: A chip like the human brain

  • Technology

Chips are in short supply. When assembly lines in Wolfsburg, Munich or Sindelfingen come to a standstill because of a shortage of inexpensive semiconductors, it is frustrating for the German automotive industry. But powerful chips and processors with entirely new architecture are also urgently needed for future technology. Machine learning and artificial intelligence are also placing new demands on chipmakers. We profile three titles.

VERBIO BioEnergie, Sierra Grande Minerals, Barrick Gold: Where timing is almost irrelevant

  • Gold

The markets have been in a celebratory mood since the crash following the outbreak of the pandemic. Slowly, however, critical voices are multiplying. Events such as the imbalance of China Evergrande and also the rising inflation are worrying investors. And now, the US Federal Reserve is threatening to raise interest rates in the coming year. How should investors deal with this situation? We present three hot stocks and explain how they fit the market.

China Evergrande, MAS Gold, Barrick Gold: How to find crisis insurance

  • Gold

The disaster surrounding the Chinese real estate developer China Evergrande is spreading far and wide - even the Deutsche Bank share took a beating at the start of the week. The concerns are obvious: if the Chinese real estate market has to put on the brakes, companies here in Germany could also suffer indirectly. No matter what happens with China Evergrande, the case shows that it pays for investors to hedge against black swans. We explain how this works.

Nordex, PuriflOH, JinkoSolar: Investing in a better world

  • Investments

To make the world a better place. That is the concern of all entrepreneurs - although one can no doubt argue about innovations in detail. There is no doubt about renewable energy and clean water.

BP, Saturn Oil + Gas, Gazprom: Where growth meets low valuations

  • Oil

The climate turnaround is coming, but it will not happen overnight. One raw material that will be needed for a long time to come is oil. OPEC recently increased its demand forecast for 2022 by 4.2 million barrels - every day. The oil companies, which are currently valued low on the stock market, will therefore continue to earn good money for a long time to come. But here, too, the companies with the edge are those that are flexible and have a sustainable focus. We present three stocks.

China Evergrande, Desert Gold, Deutsche Bank: What investors need to watch out for now

  • Gold

When the real estate bubble burst in the US more than ten years ago, the crisis was already looming months ahead. Some hedge funds fell to their knees. In addition, there were other indications that only a few market experts heeded. Today, the situation is similar. Many market participants see the fate of the Chinese real estate group Evergrande as an isolated event - similar to the proverbial sack of rice. But the risk of at least a temporary shock is real. We list risks and outline a possible profiteer.

Drägerwerk, Royal Helium, Bayer: These shares are stepping on the gas

NEL, dynaCERT, Volkswagen: Where hydrogen has not yet been written off

  • Hydrogen

Will hydrogen become a climate saver in homes? Or will it revolutionize the propulsion technology of ships and trucks? Even if hydrogen has lost some of its fantasy in recent months, the energy carrier is still on the agenda of many inventors and engineers. We introduce three companies that are - sometimes more and sometimes less - involved with hydrogen.

  • Electromobility

Electromobility is on the rise and unstoppable. In July, a survey by E.ON showed that 66% of Germans could imagine buying an e-car. For around 70% of e-car sympathizers, climate protection is the most important argument in favor of an e-car. We highlight three stocks that can benefit from the trend toward more e-mobility.

Valneva, Cardiol Therapeutics, Sartorius: Healthy returns in every market phase

  • Biotechnology

The pandemic has given the healthcare sector a boost. If people were still somewhat hesitant to talk about the digitization of the healthcare system in 2019, the epidemic has clearly revealed where the weaknesses are. New drugs and procedures could also be tested under the new framework conditions. If nothing else, the industry is getting renewed attention as a result. We outline three companies and explain whether the shares have prospects or not.

Deutsche Bank, BIGG Digital Assets, Commerzbank: Let the money work for you

  • crypto

Anyone who wants to make a good cut financially gets involved wherever as much money as possible is turned over. Decades ago, the good old "bank apprenticeship" was considered a solid foundation for the future. Although the young bankers of the time have become better real estate agents in recent years, the principle remains the same: Where money is turned over, there is also something to be gained. It is much the same for investors.

BioNTech, Defence Therapeutics, Valneva: Here, the overall market (almost) does not matter

  • Biotechnology

Is the crash coming or not? Meanwhile, even Wall Street banks are warning of an imminent crash event. Many commentators are jumping on the bandwagon. The reasons: Delta variation, supply problems and inflation, and an economy that could suffer. But if you compare the crashes of the past years, one thing becomes clear: Only the fewest price setbacks came with notice! We present three stocks that many investors believe can combine growth and security.

K+S, Deutsche Rohstoff, Barrick Gold: How investors profit from inflation

  • Oil

Prices are rising and rising! In August, inflation rose more sharply than at any time in the last 28 years. It rose by an average of 3.9% compared with the same month of the previous year. The main price drivers were food and energy commodities. But other products and services are also becoming more and more expensive. Here is how investors can take this trend into account in their portfolios.

When young founders develop business models, it is often a question of "purpose," i.e. the best possible (good) purpose of a company. For the new generation, money is no longer the only thing that counts. Instead, earning money and doing good are the watchwords. On the stock market, too, some companies make the world a little better. We look at three stocks and find out whether there is money to be made in them.

Nordex, Water Ways Technologies, MorphoSys: How investors invest in the future

  • Investments

The future is traded on the stock exchange. But what does it look like? It is not easy to make concrete predictions. That is one of the reasons why there are both positive and negative surprises on the stock market. But as an investor, you can help the odds, for example, by focusing on megatrends. Demographics, health, and sustainability are trends that will still be in place in ten years. We present three possible investments.

JinkoSolar, Silver Viper, Plug Power: Shares for the energy transition

  • Silver

Clean energy does not work without technology. The energy transition can only succeed if photovoltaic systems or even wind turbines are state-of-the-art. It is therefore essential that there are companies that lead the way technologically. This can be achieved with new products, daring plans, or in a classic way: by promoting suitable raw materials.

Stocks that have taken a bit of a beating have a certain appeal for investors. On the one hand, the shares seem to be on special offer, and on the other hand, it quickly becomes clear from the performance chart where the potential of the respective Company on the stock market extends. But shares are not always ripe for a comeback. What investors should watch out for and what the situation looks like for three selected stocks.

The future is electric - at least for cars and bicycles. The pedelec boom is ensuring that bike stores are working overtime and have been busy for months. Thanks to the e-motor, entirely new customer groups are suddenly interested in aerodynamic frames, comfortable carbon seatposts or trendy paint finishes. What is already underway in the bicycle sector could also be in store for motorcycles. In Asia, electric bikes with powerful acceleration are all the rage.

Nordex, Talkpool, HeidelbergCement: Construction goes green and digital - Investors profit

  • Investments

Do you know what all electrical appliances have in common? They have become smaller and smaller over the years. Advances in electrical engineering and digitization have ensured that even complex devices have become smaller and smaller while at the same time being powerful and more energy-efficient. As a result, numerous possibilities have opened up - for example, in the area of the Internet of Things. The interplay of sensors and small electronic devices offers users new possibilities, saves money, and protects the environment.

Heidelberger Druckmaschinen, Troilus Gold, TUI: The Power of Transformation

  • Gold

Transformations are the salt in the soup of the stock market. Whenever companies break new ground, win new customers or enter completely new territory, opportunities arise for investors. At the beginning of such developments, the market usually does not quite believe in the chances. But then, more and more investors jump on the bandwagon and boost the share price. The further transformations go, the greater the associated opportunities. We present three companies that are breaking new ground and classify their prospects.

Gazprom, Kodiak Copper, Nordex: This is how the energy transition pays off

  • Copper

Keeping the economy moving requires energy. This energy can come from a variety of sources. Fossil fuels, such as oil and gas, have come under fire for their CO2 emissions. However, what is clear is that these energy sources will remain important for a long time to come. As a climate-neutral alternative, electricity from renewable sources is gaining in importance. However, this requires investments in storage facilities and transmission lines. We present three stocks related to the energy sector.

  • Hydrogen

And what about hydrogen? CDU/CSU chancellor candidate Armin Laschet not only earned the laughs of Tesla boss Elon Musk when he asked about the appropriate technology for the mobility revolution, but the German media also mocked the CDU chairman. Yet hydrogen as an energy carrier is far from being out of the question, at least for trucks, ships and trains. Hydrogen could also be used as a power source in remote regions. Reason enough to take a closer look at a few stocks.

The summer has caused a lethargic mood on the stock market. There are inflation concerns, and also, the pandemic is again leading to many hospitalizations in many countries. Nevertheless, the markets seem to have weathered the worst. The closer we get to fall, the more likely future issues will dominate the market again. Whenever issues of mobility or regenerative energy come up, commodities also come into play. We take a look at three shares related to popular commodities.

Fancy watches, sparkling necklaces or a classy bag - in dreary times, people with money like to enjoy luxury items. Even though the Corona Crisis initially hurt the industry - after all, luxury goods are typically purchased while traveling - the sector is once again on the upswing. Asian customers, in particular, are keen to treat themselves. China's emerging middle class is so large that even large luxury companies are ringing the cash register. We take a look at three shares from the sector.

The pandemic has not only brought losers. There is also a long list of winners. Starting with Amazon and Deutsche Post and ending with BioNTech. Before Corona, the latter Company was always considered a beacon of hope around mRNA technology. Then came the pandemic, and suddenly several small test balloons turned into a gigantic project as we know it today, with a successful outcome.

JinkoSolar, Blackrock Silver, Standard Lithium: The winners of the climate turnaround

  • Silver

Renewable energy is the essential key to climate neutrality. Even the solar energy that reaches the earth in just one hour would be enough to supply the world with electricity for a year. So it makes sense to tap into more of this energy. Since solar modules and photovoltaic systems currently produce around twenty times more energy over their lifetime than is needed to manufacture them, the approach pays off. We present three companies involved in renewable energies and highlight their current opportunities.

Gazprom, Central African Gold, Steinhoff: Dynamic opportunities arise here

In July, German consumer prices rose by 3.8%, the highest rate in almost thirty years. The Deutsche Bundesbank expects inflation to climb to around 5% this year. Such a devaluation of capital naturally puts savers under pressure. In addition to the conservative to speculative investments in commodities, which often rise in step with inflation, some investors are also considering speculative gambler stocks. We present three shares and assess their suitability as inflation investments.

The current events in Afghanistan show that countries will have to invest in their defense in the future in order to meet geostrategic requirements. Currently, the Bundeswehr is fighting tooth and nail against bureaucracy and time to save as many Germans or local forces and their families as possible from the Taliban. Modern equipment is just as necessary for this as efficient decision-making chains. In this article, we look at two defense-related companies and conclude with the current situation with NEL's hydrogen stock.

Volkswagen, dynaCERT, BYD: Sudden turnaround ahead?

When Volkswagen CEO Herbert Diess visits Markus Lanz's talk show, the corporate leader exudes an esprit that almost comes close to celebrity founders from the USA. Even if a comparison with Elon Musk would be far-fetched - they seem more modern and flexible, the managers of German corporations. This flexibility is probably also necessary to lead huge corporations into the future in a time of change. The challenges are great: In addition to the uncertainty about the future, numerous smaller companies are also digging in their heels and want to wrest market shares from the big players. We take a look at three stocks that focus on the future of mobility.

As a result, there is an increasing risk that price increases will develop their own momentum and become inflation. Although inflation is a signal of a booming economy, sharply rising producer prices are already causing long faces at some industrial companies - after all, margins are shrinking as a result. Reason enough to look at insurances against inflation. We present three companies.

You do not have to be a visionary to predict that the world will spin even faster in the next ten years than it has in the past ten. What that means is clear: The changes will be huge. Above all, the major trends of climate protection and digitization will continue to change the world. Companies that are engaged in and around these trends offer great opportunities.

Deutsche Bank, Aspermont, Tencent: Where the tech boom starts

  • Digitization

Those who want to make money tend to look to industries where a lot of money is also turned over. Classic sectors are banking or real estate. But things are also going well in manufacturing: Those who have unique products worldwide are happy about high margins. Particularly in technological change, this also includes commodities - as the name already says, there is no business without these goods. We present stocks related to finance, technology and commodities and highlight a value that can be considered an insider tip.

  • Hydrogen

The Union's candidate for chancellor and CDU chairman Armin Laschet only received a loud laugh when he asked Tesla boss Elon Musk about the chances for hydrogen as a fuel for cars. The question is entirely justified. Although the trend for cars is clearly towards electric vehicles, hydrogen could be the solution for delivery vans, trucks or ships. Reason enough to take a closer look at participating companies and potential customers.

New, "green" trends are turning the raw materials market upside down. The boom in electric mobility means that we need more copper. Other industrial metals are also in demand. Precious metals, such as silver, are moving into focus because of the growing demand for solar and photovoltaic systems. At the same time, central banks around the globe remain relaxed despite rising inflation - this could be water on the mills of gold. We present three stocks and evaluate their opportunities.

Asia is the boom region par excellence. However, China, in particular, has weakened in recent months. For years, China was considered an anchor of stability for the region - and even the world. Since February, however, Chinese shares have lost around EUR 1 trillion in market value. The market is speculating about US capital controls, which could hit China in particular. The restructuring of China's education system, which many private providers are suffering from, is unsettling. We explain why long-term investors need not fear.

Sustainability is one of those things - The closer you look, the more complex the situation becomes. Just recently, a study by the non-governmental organization ICCT showed that even hydrogen vehicles fueled with green hydrogen could have sustainability flaws. The reason: the tanks are sometimes made of carbon fibers. Their production can generate about as many greenhouse gases as the production of batteries for e-cars. We look at three stocks related to hydrogen and mobility and explain what opportunities investors can associate with them.

People without access to clean water are more likely to suffer from infectious diseases. What is only an issue here for a few weeks after natural disasters is sadly commonplace in other regions. It is not without reason that access to clean drinking water has long been a human right. Protecting water supplies is also a duty for companies.

Inflation is here - and it is not going away: Inflation rose by 5.4% in June within the USA compared to the same period last year. That is more than even pessimistic experts had expected in the run-up to the figures. Inflation is also picking up speed; compared with the previous month, inflation rose by 0.9%. The answer to this development may be gold. Shortly after the figures were published, the precious metal surged. We highlight two gold stocks and use the example of another currently very popular commodity stock to show why the time is favorable for gold now.

Newmont, Troilus Gold, Steinhoff: How much substance is needed?

  • Gold

Rising prices, ever higher national debts - many people are shifting parts of their savings into gold because of this. At first glance, that sounds plausible. Gold has retained its value over thousands of years and has outlasted states and monetary systems. But investors should not just assume the worst. While physical gold paired with silver is a good alternative in the biggest crisis, bars and coins show weakness when things don't end up quite so bad. If only a little inflation threatens and states and governments continue to muddle through in cooperation with central banks, physical holdings are not the best idea. It is here where shares in gold companies can score points. We explain how this works with two examples. Finally, we reject blunt gambling.

While lithium is closely associated with the boom in consumer electronics and electromobility, silver is familiar as an industrial metal at a second glance. Gold's little brother is still running in step with the best-known of all precious metals.

Public debt in Germany has exceeded the EUR 2.2 trillion mark for the first time, the Federal Statistical Office announced a few weeks ago. Per capita, the debt thus stands at EUR 26,532. Of course, such figures also unsettle investors. If the public sector is so indebted, this could also impact future monetary policy - after all, rising interest rates would significantly increase the cost of refinancing. That is an argument for the ultra-loose monetary policy to continue. That includes all the negative consequences, such as rising prices for tangible assets and products for daily use.

Good health is the most valuable commodity. Especially those who have everything materially want nothing more than to remain healthy in the case of illness. People are also becoming more circumspect when it comes to preventive checkups. A few years ago, the cliché prevailed that men, in particular, gave doctors a wide berth. Today, prevention and regular checkups are considered a must. In this context, imaging techniques are becoming increasingly important: Whether an intervertebral disc or cardiovascular problem - modern medical technology equipment allows doctors to closely monitor and make the appropriate diagnoses.

Commodity prices have always been considered an indicator of fundamental changes in the global economy. It is not for nothing that the price of copper is known as "Dr. Copper" because of its role as an economic indicator. Oil and gold also have a signaling effect: when the energy commodity rises, it stands for an intact global economy and incipient inflationary tendencies. Gold is also an inflationary metal in a certain sense. Added to this is the property as crisis insurance. But which commodities are best suited for investment? We run through three scenarios using companies as examples.

The global energy mix also shows that renewable energies are a welcome trend but by no means the rule: As reported by the International Energy Agency, oil accounted for 31.5% of primary energy supply in 2018. It is followed by coal at 26.8%, and gas at 22.8%. Fossil energy sources thus had a share of more than 80% in 2018. These energy sources will still be needed in the coming years.

Adler Modemärkte, Steinhoff, Osino Resources: Which penny stocks have substance?

Penny stocks often have something disreputable about them - at least in Germany. As soon as a share is quoted at less than EUR 1 in Germany, it is considered to be at risk of insolvency. The reason for this is that the minimum nominal value of German stock corporations is EUR 1. Abroad, however, things are quite different: In Australia, it is not uncommon for shares to trade even below one cent. For investors who are used to this, it is anything but disreputable. In concrete terms, it all depends on the companies themselves anyway. We profile three companies that are either penny stocks or were, not long ago.

One potential candidate for this is the Canadian Company Barsele Minerals, developing a prospective gold project in Sweden. Deutsche Bank, on the other hand, recently showed how not to do it.

Royal Helium, NEL, Steinhoff: Quick profits? That is what counts!

Earning a lot of money in a short time is ideal for many private investors.

Kodiak Copper, ThyssenKrupp, BYD: Three trends in one share

  • Copper

Copper is the metal of the moment. There are several reasons in favor of copper. Firstly, copper is benefiting from the global economic recovery following the end of the pandemic. The industrial metal has always been the primary beneficiary when infrastructure is invested in or otherwise built. It is precisely in this way that countries want to boost their economies after the pandemic. At the same time, there is a dynamic demand from the e-car industry. E-cars and charging infrastructure, none of that works without copper. And last but not least, inflation is getting to us - the Bundesbank is already expecting inflation rates beyond the 4% mark. Again, commodity prices tend to benefit.

Nevada Copper, Salzgitter, NIO: The Greens and the Copper Price

  • Copper

Since the end of March 2020, the copper price has doubled. The trend is intact and investors are using every minor interim correction to get in. After the pandemic, countries worldwide want to get their economies back on track and fit for the future. Investments in infrastructure have been overdue for years anyway and are the very first measure for many countries. Sustainable solutions, such as charging infrastructure for electromobility, are also on the agenda. The copper price should continue to benefit. Demand from Germany, in particular, is likely to increase - a look at the polls in the election year suggests that it should soon rain billions for electric cars and their charging infrastructure. Some stocks are already benefiting.

White Metal Resources, BASF, K+S: How to react to 4% inflation

  • Commodities

As reported by Handelsblatt, the German Bundesbank expects an inflation rate of up to 4% by year-end. Within the eurozone, for which the central bank ECB is responsible, it could be well over 2%. This mixed situation is particularly tricky for Germans. While inflation in Germany is already very high, the lower price momentum within the eurozone could ensure that the ECB leaves its money floodgates open for even longer. In the long term, this could encourage inflation to overshoot. How can investors react to this? We present three stocks.

  • Gold

In about eight weeks, the price of gold has transformed from a problem child to a beacon of hope. The reason: inflation is on the rise. In the US, consumer prices are already at 4.2%. At the same time, more and more economies are taking steps towards normality as the pandemic nears its end. That should ensure that prices continue to rise. Gold is particularly interesting because while demand can explode overnight, supply is slow to grow. Using various companies as examples, we explain how money can be made with this mixture of factors.

Saturn Oil + Gas, NEL, BYD: Here come the multipliers!

  • Oil

The stock market offers something for every type of investor: the cool calculator, the bold speculator and the rational decision-maker. The bull market in hydrogen stocks around the turn of the year was a case for daring gamblers: the technology is not ready for the market yet, and every investment is a bet on the future. Investors in Saturn Oil & Gas are likely to have felt like gamblers at times during the past year, which was marked by a collapse in the oil price that has now been compensated for. But since the end of last week, it has become clear that the share is also interesting for cool calculators and rational decision-makers. The reason lies in an acquisition that takes the Company to a whole new level and should also mean enormous potential for the share price.

First Majestic Silver, Silver Viper, JinkoSolar: Investors have several irons in the fire

  • Silver

Silver is a sought-after metal: Gold's little brother is considered the perfect crisis metal. If you want to protect yourself against the uncertainties of the financial system, you are better off with silver coins than with gold coins. After all, the former has a lower value and is better suited as a substitute currency. But fortunately, the markets are currently still far from doomsday sentiment. Nevertheless, rising inflation and the growing importance of silver as an industrial metal for regenerative energy are arguments in favor of the precious metal. Reason enough to take a closer look at three companies that are more or less involved with silver.

At the same time, central banks are making no move to raise interest rates. On the one hand, this suggests that central banks might miss the right time to curb inflation and, on the other hand, that the relative attractiveness of gold to interest-bearing bonds will continue.

Scarcity rules in Germany. A year ago, it was noodles, canned food and toilet paper. Today, it is down to the last detail: building materials, metals and other essential materials are in short supply and correspondingly expensive. The first joineries have even had to cancel orders that were calculated months ago - wood has become too expensive. The automotive industry is also driving demand for basic materials, especially critical metals for batteries. We outline the investment stories of two carmakers and get to the bottom of the question of how raw material shortages can be countered.

If a project then combines two megatrends, it becomes all the more exciting.

The financial scene is currently dominated by two issues: The impact of technological change and changes in the wake of the pandemic and rising inflation. The first set of issues has pushed the markets for many years. Rising inflation has only recently become an issue. The economy held steady during the second and third waves and continued to grow slowly. At the same time, the anticipation of openings is growing. This explosive mix has already caused some commodity prices to rise. The market themes of technological change and inflation are cumulating in the price of copper, which has been rising dynamically for months, benefiting from both the e-car boom and the strengthening economy.

The two German companies BioNTech and CureVac, have been causing quite a stir since the outbreak of the pandemic. At first, the biotech newcomers were known only to hard-nosed investors who are used to seizing long-term opportunities and accepting initial uncertainty to do so. Even during the first months of the pandemic, it was far from clear whether BioNTech and CureVac would be successful.

Sometimes it pays to take a look at the second tier. Silver has always been in the shadow of gold. But from time to time, the lesser precious metal catches up with gold. Currently, the reasons lie primarily in the importance of silver as an industrial metal, especially in electrical engineering and RFID chips. Although the gold-silver ratio fell significantly in the past year, the long-term trend shows that silver was valued higher than gold several times in the past.

But already after this press event, something had changed in the public's consciousness. The incredible acceleration of the first Tesla Roadster put a smile on the faces of all test drivers. Even the biggest doubters were at least appeased and interested in what was still to come from Tesla. The rest is history.

In the meantime, the central banks are reacting to the extent that they are once again buying more bonds to push down yields. In the future, one could also see inflation in Europe less as a target value and more as a target corridor. An overshooting of inflation is thus all the more likely. We present three stocks and explain whether they can benefit from the current environment or not.

The oil price has long since left the crisis behind. Even though North Sea Brent crude prices have fallen somewhat in recent days, the outlook remains bright. At a time when everyone is talking about renewable energy, market experts emphasize that fossil fuels will continue to play an important role in the world. The energy transition is a process, not an event. Above all, oil producers that act sustainably could continue to score points. We present three stocks.

BYD, Blackrock Silver, First Majestic Silver: The greener the world, the better for silver

  • Silver

It was unclear for a long time when the automotive industry would focus on electromobility. For too long, German manufacturers, in particular, continued to bring large, heavy and powerful combustion engines to the market. But now Volkswagen and Daimler and Co. have rethought and are fully committed to electromobility. The consequences are manifold: In addition to rising share prices, such as VW, the prices of potential suppliers are also climbing. This much is clear: The mobility revolution requires one thing above all: more raw materials.

Bechtle, Revez, Deutsche Bank: Digital is better

  • Software

There is no doubt that digitization is a trend that is here to stay. The experts at ClearBridge Investments have identified a boom in fintech. The pandemic, they say, is giving many innovative solutions a tailwind and further transforming the financial industry. "Shares of some newly listed, consumer-focused fintech are soaring on the back of rapid growth and strong investor demand. Likely fueled at least in part by high liquidity in capital markets and investor focus on fast-growing companies," said an analyst at the investment firm. But there are also digitization opportunities among established stocks that are not from the financial sector. We take a closer look at three stocks.

SunMirror, Barrick Gold, NIO, Volkswagen: Megatrend sustainable battery metals

  • Commodities

There is no doubt that the mobility of the future will be electric - at least if you believe Volkswagen. A few days ago, the global corporation presented a strategy for its battery production as part of its Battery Day. But batteries need raw materials and these raw materials have become increasingly scarce in recent years. There was already a boom around lithium in 2016. Prices have calmed down again, but many a small supplier went off the market. This is now taking revenge. When Volkswagen wants to double the number of electric cars it sells, raw materials are in short supply. How can investors use the situation for themselves? Read on.

Many a stock that was highly praised just months ago has since lost half its value. At the same time, however, it is clear that the trend toward new drive technologies will continue. In the fourth quarter of 2020, around one-fifth of newly registered vehicles in Germany were hybrids and pure electric cars. Reason enough to look at stocks that could still have potential now.

Bitcoin Group, Osino Resources, Newmont: Inflation winners for the portfolio

  • Gold

Despite rising inflation and climbing energy prices, the European Central Bank is sticking to its ultra-loose course and will be even more involved in the bond market in the future than it already is. In this way, the monetary guardians want to recapture rising yields and improve companies and governments' refinancing conditions. While this is understandable in view of the crisis, it could be too much of a good thing as early as the second half of 2021. If the economy picks up again after the lockdowns and people enjoy their lives without restrictions for the first time in more than a year, inflation could loom.

While precious metals have been consolidating for months, copper prices continue to climb. Most recently, copper started a new upward movement at the end of February and is now more expensive than it has been for decades. What is the reason for this? On the one hand, copper has always been a sought-after industrial metal. Whenever investments are made in infrastructure worldwide, copper climbs. At the same time, copper benefits from the high demand from the automotive industry. Every electric car contains around three times more copper than conventional combustion engines. We highlight three stocks that can benefit from the copper boom.

  • Gold

Inflation is the hot topic again. But inflation is far from being a threat. This is probably also why the gold price is currently suffering. The reason: interest rates could rise in the long term, making bonds more attractive again compared to interest-free gold. But the past has shown that gold can often even profit from inflation when inflation rates are very high - after all, the precious metal remains the world's oldest reserve currency. The gold sector companies have tomorrow's gold in the ground with valuations far below current gold prices and that offers opportunities. We present three stocks.

The pandemic shows it: humans are social creatures who long for their loved ones and want to experience something in good company. Mobility is the key to this. In the face of climate change and air pollution, electric cars are an obvious solution. But if you look at the stock market, you might think that hydrogen has now overtaken e-mobility. But that is by no means the case. Hydrogen still struggles with lower efficiency and is probably primarily suitable for large energy storage systems or ships. For passenger cars, the advantages of classic electric vehicles with batteries currently outweigh the disadvantages.

Looking at the stock market today, one sees the major indexes at record highs and stocks, like Tesla and Ballard Power, far from anything that can be reasoned with. The current situation is a deterrent to many investors. But that's a mistake. Instead of staying completely out of the market, it's worth taking a look at stragglers. These still exist today. Many of these stragglers are indirectly benefiting from strong major trends and could be on the verge of a revaluation. Three of these representatives are Lenovo, Triumph Gold and even K+S.

Pfizer, Q&M Dental Group, Johnson & Johnson: Where do profiteers of the pandemic lurk?

  • Healthcare

We all know that one's health is the most important thing. But from time to time, this truism slips out of focus. The pandemic has shown that neither fame nor money can protect you from getting sick. A big step toward being healthy, however, can be made by trusting in research. The development of vaccines in record time has shown how great the potential is in science and the pharmaceutical industry. New test methods are continually coming onto the market. Three shares show that there is money to be made on the stock market from these developments.

Gazprom, Saturn Oil & Gas, Exxon Mobil: The cards are being reshuffled in the oil sector

  • Energy

The oil price reflects the state of the real economy. After the first Corona lockdowns last spring caused the prices to plummet - ultimately bringing economic activity to a complete standstill - oil has now stabilized significantly. Since the beginning of November, Brent crude has gained around 50%. In the wake of the futures exchanges, the shares of production companies have also performed well. But here, too, there is light and shade - we look at three stocks between dull and highly speculative.

BYD, Defense Metals, Nornickel: Still investing in electromobility?

  • Rare Earth Elements

Electromobility is a trend that is making waves on the stock market: Car manufacturers such as Tesla or BYD are benefiting from the rising demand and the vision of the future, but so are commodity companies. The reason: If you want to drive electric cars with low emissions, you need more raw materials for energy storage and motors than for classic combustion engines. Typical candidates are copper, cobalt, or lithium. Rare earth metals play a unique role. So far, most of them have come from China - and some are mined under dubious conditions. But anyone serious about sustainability must look at the entire value chain when it comes to electromobility and pay attention to raw materials from producers with a good ESG profile. For raw material companies outside China, this is an opportunity.

NEL, dynaCERT, K+S: Where analysts see 280% potential

  • Hydrogen

Innovative technology brings returns to investors. The best example is the share of the Norwegian hydrogen specialist NEL. In the past twelve months, the value has increased by more than 250%. The reason: The mobility revolution is underway and many experts see hydrogen as the next big thing. However, billions in investments are needed to produce, store and distribute hydrogen - and that's precisely what NEL shareholders are speculating on. Trees don't grow to the sky on the stock market and every trend comes to an end. In the case of NEL, however, pessimists have been caught on the wrong foot in recent weeks. As soon as the chart showed a warning signal and the share price hesitated for a moment, the stock surged ahead and marked a new high. How long will this continue?

Deutsche Lufthansa, TUI, Upco International: Sustainable business models generate returns

  • Sustainability

In today's world, we often associate sustainability with environmental protection and social standards. These factors rightly deserve more attention and are increasingly being included in the analysis of companies. But sustainability in the sense of continuity means first and foremost that a company is capable of survival. To ensure this, a company must continuously adapt to new circumstances. Sometimes this works to the companies’ advantage, and sometimes not, and sometimes, it creates excellent opportunities for shareholders.

Sustainability is a trend that is affecting all industries - some sooner, others later. While carmakers have been paying attention to lower fuel consumption and fewer exhaust emissions for years, today, clothing manufacturers and tour operators are also under pressure. Customers want to know what environmental and social footprint certain products and services leave behind. For companies from traditional industries that are already sustainably positioned, this can be a good selling point that also benefits share prices on the stock market.

Anyone who bets on trending stocks on the stock market knows the problem: it's hard to chase the prices and get in after significant price increases. But sometimes the market is just crazy and tends to exaggerate. Despite rocketing rises, some stocks keep climbing. Investors with great courage nevertheless jump at the chance, as in the case of the hydrogen share NEL, which has rushed from record to record. Those who pay more attention to risk look to second-tier stocks that are yet to make a chart breakout. The important thing here is that the associated investment story also has something to offer - such as with the Chinese electric car pioneer NIO.

Alibaba, GS Holdings, LVMH: Growth markets in Asia

Asia is a vast market. In the coming years, millions of people in China and other Asian countries will become wealthy. Even modest prosperity can lead to huge returns on the stock market. The reason: the emerging middle class increasingly treats itself to electrical goods, restaurant visits or even the odd luxury item. For luxury goods manufacturers such as LVMH, Asia has long been one of the most significant growth markets. Alibaba has successfully adapted Amazon's shopping concept for the Asian market and offers excellent long-term growth opportunities. GS Holdings operates food courts in Singapore and is also active as a service provider for all aspects of gastronomy.

NEL ASA, Desert Gold, Barrick Gold: Risk Check on Trendy Stocks

The Corona pandemic has led to a real boom in online brokers. More and more people are managing their own money and investing in stocks from their smartphones. What is welcomed, quickly leads to disillusionment for many high-flyers: when trend stocks are bought at an exorbitant price and then sold off again in panic during price corrections. As a rule, the profit on the stock market lies in the purchase. Who enters favorably and gives a share time, can pursue its strategy entirely objectively? Neither buying panic nor the threat of a setback then weighs on the investor's psyche. Nevertheless, shares like those of hydrogen pioneer NEL are still in high demand.

Although the news is primarily dominated by the pandemic and the effects of the lockdown, the economy continues to turn. Many service providers are suffering from the pandemic, and the structural change it has triggered. The situation for producers is quite different: Manufacturers of electrical appliances and electric cars are sitting on full order books and looking to a rosy future. Mining companies are also feeling this optimism: since the pandemic's outbreak, commodity prices have been on the rise. Project financiers and major investors are not backing down or adopting a wait-and-see attitude, even in times of crisis. For private investors, this is a good sign - there is something to be gained in the commodities sector.

Copper is considered a rather dull industrial metal. Yet copper is more than many investors think: analysts expect that more copper will be mined in the next thirty years than in the entire history of mankind. What sounds enormous is, in reality, so. Copper mines around the world are producing at the limit of their capacity. New projects are waiting in the wings and are urgently needed. One of the main drivers of the copper boom is electromobility. An electric car contains around three times as much copper as a conventional combustion engine. Hydrogen vehicles also contain copper. Reason enough to take a closer look at some interesting stocks around the trend.

The past few years have had a notable impact on investors: Tech companies, in particular, have been well received on the markets, while classic sectors were spurned despite low valuations. But for some months now, the big turnaround has been underway: more and more classic sectors that can score with low valuations are catching up - tech stocks are holding up solidly, but are increasingly facing headwinds. That's what happened with Alibaba. Like its big role model, the Chinese Amazon clone has long been more than just a retailer. Through its Ant Group holding, Alibaba is thick in the fintech business: payment, banking, insurance - all of this, fed by valuable data, promises a thriving business in the future. That is if it were not for the Chinese regulators.

  • Silver

When the gold price set records between March and August and reached a new all-time high, silver also performed well. Previously, the two precious metals had diverged widely. The gold-silver ratio, which shows how many ounces of silver can buy an ounce of gold, had risen sharply at the start of the pandemic, indicating that silver was undervalued. In the meantime, this exaggeration has corrected. Silver is still trading in an attractive range with a gold-silver ratio of 80. However, if one looks at the major commodity companies, it is noticeable that silver does not play a significant role and is usually only a by-product of gold.

  • Precious Metals

Whenever central banks and governments open the money floodgates, it's a positive signal for the gold price. After the initial reactions to the pandemic in March and April, the prices of gold companies went steeply upwards. Shares of many smaller companies in particular multiplied between April and August. Since then, the market has entered a consolidation phase. This phase could be an opportunity for investors - after all, the prices of gold shares, in particular, have fallen back, in some cases, significantly. At the same time, the pandemic is spreading, and governments and central banks are in a certain path dependency: to deny support to the economy now on the home stretch seems unlikely and also counterproductive given the aid already provided. Gold and companies involved in gold production should, therefore continue to have good prospects.

At the same time, here in Germany, the restrictions of the pandemic were still being felt. The differences are also evident at the moment: while the hard lockdown prevails in Germany, business life in Asia continues - only partially interrupted by restrictions. When looking at promising companies, Asian stocks are increasingly appearing on the buy lists of professional investors. Why? Many Asian companies are technologically far ahead and close to fast-growing future markets. Nowhere else in the world is the middle class growing faster than in Asia.

E.ON, Sartorius, Defense Metals: The scarcer the goods, the higher the price

  • Investments

Only in times of need do you realize what matters, and this is precisely what many businesses and private individuals are experiencing during the lockdown. Industry, too, can quickly find itself in need. The best example was the first few months of the pandemic when global supply chains broke down. Today, Asia is back on the growth path and the cargo ships are fully loaded. But the industry could still be in trouble - for example, if the energy supply collapses. Only recently, it became known that increasing electromobility is causing load peaks in the power grids - for example, after work. Utilities such as E.ON want to take countermeasures and, if need be, implement so-called "peak smoothing." This implementation plan would mean that charging stations would no longer be supplied with electricity when the grid load is high. Anyone still wanting to drive an electric vehicle in the evening would be left out in the cold.

Barrick Gold, Newmont, Triumph Gold: Where can you get a 300% return?

  • Gold

Even though the gold price has taken a breather in recent months, the general conditions for the crisis metal are still favorable. All over the world, central banks and governments are overturning support measures. In Germany in particular, the consequences of the pandemic restrictions are aggressively cushioned - at the expense of higher new debt. Meanwhile, it is clear that in economies such as the USA, corona aid has been effective. In some cases, the net wealth of households have even increased. But this points to a consumption backlog, which could result in rising prices and thus a growing awareness of inflation. In the first half of 2020, the gold price has already shown how sensitive it can react to such a development. Now that gold has regained its strength after the price losses, it may be a good time to enter the market.

What leaves the sweat of fear on the foreheads of traditional businesses could generate sizable revenues for digital business models, and this development is shown, for example, by the performance of the Zalando share.

Telekom Austria, Upco International, PayPal: Pioneering spirit pays off in the long term

Industries are changing, and this change can be extremely lucrative for investors. Just think of the boring automotive sector and the success of Tesla and Co. Digital payment service providers, such as PayPal, are also much better off today than traditional banks. One industry that could benefit from a similar transformation by new players is telecommunications. Many small service providers or telephone companies have a scale problem despite ever-increasing networking—the reason: the classic business with telephony or SMS is eroding and shifting to the network. However, to be a full-fledged provider, telephone companies must continue to offer traditional solutions. That creates problems - even for the big players in the industry.

The investment Company has set its sights on medium-sized companies and focuses on companies with growth potential. After the purchase, Aurelius intervenes in the business and develops an individual concept for each of its subsidiaries. Once the holdings have grown and are ready for an exit, Aurelius sets about selling them - and often generates substantial profits.

In addition to a young and rapidly growing population, which drives the domestic market, education from a level of training is also an essential factor.

AngloGold Ashanti, Blackrock Gold, Newmont: Investing in gold - but how?

  • Gold

Gold investors are in a comfortable situation: The precious metal has lost a little from its highs, but still shows excellent relative strength at the USD 1,900 an ounce mark. Although news of vaccines has taken some pressure off the markets in the short term, the big picture for gold investors remains intact. The crisis of the century requires trillion-dollar measures. This flood of money, in turn, increases the risk of further problems and could drive inflation. Contrary to the opinion of many investors, it is not inflation that drives the gold price, but their expectations. Given the measures already taken and those still in the pipeline by governments and central banks, there is every reason for increased inflationary expectations. But how does an investment in the expected gold boom succeed?

While grandmother still hid bars and coins under the bed, today's investors can resort to gold ETCs. These usually securitize physical gold and can also be held in custody at attractive fees and actively traded. Yield hunters nevertheless prefer to use gold shares. The reason: stocks such as AngloGold Ashanti, Blackrock Gold or Newmont usually offer leverage on the gold price. Depending on how a Company develops, the gold reserves in the ground are also valued.

Successful companies often do things a little differently than their competitors.

The car rental Company operates in many areas and also offers leasing and used cars. Although business at the airports has mostly come to a standstill, SIXT is rightly considered flexible enough to be able to meet new requirements. The Company drastically reduced its vehicle fleet after the outbreak of the pandemic. SIXT will continue to invest in digital business models in the future, such as a monthly car subscription. This approach means that the share is now doing comparatively well again after a slump in March. The Company is not a crisis winner, but it does have a future.

As the large gold companies, in particular, have shrunk healthily in recent years and worked on their cost structures, the ruble is rolling. Commodity giant Newmont reported a free cash flow of USD 1.3 billion in the third quarter alone, and free funds are also bubbling up at Barrick Gold. In an ordinary world, such figures lead to takeover speculation. But the pandemic is making travel and detailed due diligence on commodity projects difficult.

Cryptocurrencies are unfortunately the preferred field of activity of criminals. Nevertheless, the price of Bitcoin is currently going through the roof again. The best-known of all cryptocurrencies developed rapidly after the start of the second Corona wave - within a month alone, the replacement currency to the Euro rose by around 25%.

Sartorius, Intel, Royal Helium: How investors invest in the future

  • Investments

The crisis divides the economy: On the one hand, some industries are forced into change or disappear from the market. On the other hand, there are also winners of the crisis: shares in the healthcare sector profit from the increasing demand for healthcare or laboratory products. Chip manufacturers are happy about full order books and are beneficiaries of the growing digitalization. The megatrend of the past few years has gained additional momentum due to the pandemic.

Deutsche Telekom, Freenet, Upco International: Where telecommunications creates returns

  • Telecommunications

If investors were looking for high returns a little more than twenty years ago, they often found them in telecommunications stocks. In addition to the big network operators, such as Deutsche Telekom and Vodafone, the mobile phone stocks of the first hour, such as Nokia and Ericsson, also caused euphoria among investors. The telecommunications sector has become uninteresting for investors. This does not mean telecommunication shares do not play a vital role in the portfolios of investors or that they can even increase the yield noticeably as a speculative addition.

Grenke, Delivery Hero, Desert Gold: Momentum shares on hold

  • Investments

There are stocks where there is something in the air. For some of them, the trend is ultimately negative, others never pick up speed, and others just take off. Three of these potential momentum stocks are Grenke, Delivery Hero, and Desert Gold. At Grenke, the eyes of the market are focused on the accusations of balance sheet manipulation. Although the Baden-Baden-based Company has hired external auditors, suspended supervisory board posts, and announced a complete investigation, the share price is still not getting off the ground. For experienced investors, this means that something is coming to a head!

Orange, Total, Osino Resources: How to benefit from growth in Africa?

  • Africa

Africa is a booming continent: many raw materials attract investors, and the young population is pushing into future-oriented industries with even better training. It is no wonder that many companies from Europe and North America are also doing profitable business in Africa. Mobile phone provider Orange has recognized that the continent has more to offer than many people still believe. Europe's third-largest telecommunications giant has been making aggressive acquisitions in Africa in recent years. Africa and the Middle East now account for more than 13% of sales. Instead of just telephony, Orange acts as a kind of bank in Africa. Thanks to an app, people can make payments - this is safer and more flexible than cash and is popular with the younger population.

Adyen, Ryanair, dynaCERT: Return on investment thanks to revolutions

  • Revolution

Turn an industry upside down and make a fortune? Since Elon Musk, the term "disruption" has become a familiar term among investors. How does one succeed in turning an industry upside down, and how do yesterday's revolutionaries look? Answers to these questions can be in the examples of three companies that could not be more different. After the Munich-based payment service provider Wirecard went bankrupt, many investors are now focusing on the Dutch competitor, Adyen. The payment service provider is digital and platform-independent. As befits an innovative company in the industry, Adyen processes payments mobile and in stores. The Company has had a European banking license since 2017 and has been proliferating the market ever since.

Barrick Gold, Newmont, Blackrock Gold: Opportunities in the sloping market

  • Precious Metals

First the central banks and now possibly a generous new US President Joe Biden - when it comes to reasons for rising prices, market commentators always find an explanation. But one thing is sure: most support measures or capital injections are bought with capital that has either been borrowed or created by central banks. In any case, such measures should also boost the price of gold. Barrick Gold's stock looks back on a successful year and has gained a significant 53% - but how much potential does the gold blue-chip still have after the rise?

Nornickel, Newcrest Mining, Triumph Gold: Which stock benefits from rising gold prices?

  • Gold

While the price of gold is slowly but surely picking up speed again, many investors are asking themselves with which share they will best profit, from rising precious metal prices. Many investors initially think of stocks such as Rio Tinto or BHP Billiton - but these companies are virtually not involved in the mining of precious metals. To profit from rising prices, investors must take a closer look. At first glance, Nornickel's stock seems to promise more of an investment in a producer of industrial metals. Still, the company also has many precious metals on offer - platinum and palladium account for more than 40% of the commodities produced. More critical are nickel and copper with a share of almost 50%. Gold and silver are only by-products.

Tesla, Umicore, Almonty: Critical raw materials decide on yield

  • Resources

Raw materials are the key to CO2 neutrality. Whether electricity storage, solar plants, or wind turbines - without raw materials, such as nickel or cobalt, many future technologies cannot be implemented. Yet many raw materials are still extracted from the earth in China under dubious conditions, or come from other mining regions where ESG standards do not play an important role. But tomorrow's customers are already calling for better mining conditions today: Tesla boss, Elon Musk, has already publicly advocated that raw materials used by his company should come from good sources. Here could be an opportunity for mining companies operating in mining regions with high environmental standards.

Delivery Hero, PayPal, Wallstreet Online: Which stock hits the spirit of the times?

A recent study by the industry association Bitkom showed, even seniors are not averse to ordering online. Specifically, the survey was about food orders on the Internet. Almost a third of the seniors who otherwise order online also come for groceries. To what extent this investigation precisely reflects the truth remains open. But it shows one thing: The world has been changing even more since Corona than it was already. Some companies benefit from it. One example is the Delivery Hero. The company has specialized in selling food online and offers a delivery service. The DAX group is not at all active in Germany, but that does not matter to investors: Over the course of a year, the share went up a whopping 140%. But what about the potential?

Aurelius, Lukoil, SolGold: What do the jacks-of-all-trades on the stock exchange offer?

  • Investments

Those who can do a little bit of everything can go far in the professional world. Currently, the discussion about "neo-generalists" is dominating the career pages. In a world of change it is advantageous to be knowledgeable in many varied sectors, but experts criticize half-knowledge and half-baked proposals from the professional jack-of-all-trades. There are companies on the stock exchange that offer a colorful bouquet of activities. Often, the market does not initially assess this adequately. One example is the investment company, Aurelius. Whenever opportunities for acquisitions arise in promising sectors, Aurelius snaps at them. The result is a varied bouquet of investments. Aurelius itself supports the companies and plans to sell them again after successful restructuring. At present, the company has a full exit pipeline, but the market environment seems a little unfavorable given the crisis. However, diversity can pay off here - after all, not all industries are equally affected.

BAT, Barrick Gold, Osino Resources: Supposed political risks, a burden, and an opportunity

  • Investments

Businesses, like citizens, operate within the regulatory framework. In this way, the state guarantees peaceful coexistence. But what if the legal framework changes? It is easy for individuals to adapt to new circumstances. It can be more challenging for companies - for example, if a business model is shaken by regulatory requirements. The best example is the tobacco company BAT. Recently, the German Bundesrat cleared the way for a law that further restricts advertising for tobacco products. Even e-cigarettes, celebrated by the industry as a source of hope, will be subject to the likely ban. Cinema advertising, marketing activities, etc will also be restricted in the future.

Deutsche Bank, Daimler, Triumph Gold: What about these fallen angels?

  • Investments

When investigative journalists immerse themselves in the world of business, the name of Deutsche Bank is mentioned more and more often. Despite countless legal disputes and fines in recent years, the news flow does not end, the latest accusations being activities that observers call money laundering. The documentation surrounding the business relationship between Donald Trump and Deutsche Bank has cast what was once the world's largest financial institution, in a bad light. Although Trump had owed money to one department of the bank for a long time, another department of the bank lent money to the then dazzling real estate mogul to pay off his debts. Many investors would certainly not have thought that such a transaction, based on the principle of right pocket to left pocket would be possible at all. Deutsche Bank rejected a comment on the above-mentioned incident concerning banking secrecy.

BHP Group, Newcrest Mining, SolGold: Getting bogged down or putting all your eggs in one basket

  • Gold

When it comes to investing in commodity companies, the BHP Group is a household name. The British company is active worldwide, mining coal, iron ore, copper and other commodities and has long been considered a solid dividend earner. But recently the company has disappointed: Special effects put pressure on profits, unrest in Chile made life difficult for BHP and the Corona pandemic also left its mark: the bottom line at the end of the financial year at the end of June was a profit of no less than EUR 6.75 billion. While the mood among investors was not particularly good, BHP cut its dividend by around ten percent, thus spoiling shareholders’ sentiment even further. On a year-on-year basis, the share price fell by around 1.4%. In view of the good performance of copper following the outbreak of the pandemic, this is too little for many investors.

Major gold producers are shining with fundamental data. This increases the scope for important acquisitions. At the same time, young companies are attracting attention. Is a wave of takeovers following?

Gold has become a serious alternative for many investors. Even investment professionals, who until now have tended to focus on bonds, are now adding precious metals to their portfolios. Due to high liquidity and certain investment guidelines among professional investors, equities are also increasingly becoming the focus of attention. But not all shares are the same - investors should not blindly buy everything that has "gold" or "mining" in its name.

AngloGold Ashanti, Newmont, Velocity Minerals: Where does price potential slumber?

  • Gold

While the German government is thinking about softening the insolvency law even longer than expected and thus keeping many ailing companies alive, central banks make no secret of continuing the path of cheap money they embarked on immediately after the outbreak of the Corona pandemic. As a first reaction, the prices of gold and companies related to the mining of gold climbed significantly. Currently the prices have come back somewhat. Since the basic fundamental situation around the precious metal is still intact, the current phase should be seen in retrospect as a pause for breath. Reason enough to take a closer look at three companies from the gold sector.

To be noticed by the market, it takes more than just a big name. Learn how investors can invest in a phase of global money flood.

Still completely on the low in March, commodity stocks have been developing a strong dynamic for months. The reason: despite the pandemic, demand for copper and even crude oil has not slumped significantly. In the case of gold, demand is even rising continuously. This is due to the measures taken by governments and central banks to combat the crisis. As was the case during the great financial crisis, state institutions are supporting the markets with liquidity. This drives not only gold and other precious metals but also other commodities. But how should investors invest in this market environment?

The pandemic is driving the markets. But sometimes investors either come too late or bet on the wrong horse. In the analysis, three stocks for which investors hope for the game changer. The fact that the search for a cure for Covid-19 is making high waves on the stock market is shown by stocks like Moderna. Despite the current price correction, the biotech company from the USA achieves an annual performance of a massive 280%. The reason for this soaring performance is easy to find: Moderna is researching a Corona vaccine and has already reported promising interim results. Among other things, the EU has already secured several million vaccine doses in the event of a successful clinical approval procedure.
