In September 2022, NVIDIA and Deutsche Bank announced an innovation partnership focused on Artificial Intelligence (AI). The goal: to enhance and secure financial services. A lot has happened since last year's announcement. AI is seen as a productivity booster and "the next big thing." The prices of shares such as NVIDIA have also multiplied since then. This even makes partner Deutsche Bank uneasy. We highlight risks and show alternatives.

    NVIDIA: Even AI partner Deutsche Bank remains cautious

    Last week, chip manufacturer NVIDIA scored with outstanding quarterly figures. Quite a few observers had expected that the share could initiate a correction immediately after the figures. The phenomenon of sales following positive company announcements is quite common. However, NVIDIA's results were so good that the stock exploded again. Still, investors should keep in mind that NVIDIA by no means has some sort of monopoly on AI-related sales. The Company produces relevant chips, and computing power is always needed in AI applications. That said, NVIDIA is also far from unrivaled. The billion-dollar subsidies into the chip industry in recent months indicate that there could soon be an oversupply of chips.

    As in the past, subsidies play a decisive role in this. If the state guarantees subsidies, companies need not fear overcapacities, at least in the short and medium term - after all, the investment was low-risk thanks to the state support. If, as is currently the case, several subsidy-driven investments come together, this can lead to oversupply on the market in the long term. Even Deutsche Bank - NVIDIA's AI partner - maintains its Hold rating for the highly sought-after chip stock. However, the German bankers raised the price target to USD 560. Accordingly, there would still be a little more than 20% air to the upside.

    "Adyen Moment" in the chip industry not off the table

    From a chart perspective, the recent hype may have been a flash in the pan - the stock failed to break above the July high. In addition, the market should continue to expect extraordinary things from NVIDIA in the coming quarters. The risk of the Company disappointing investors in the near future is not off the table. The danger of NVIDIA experiencing their "Adyen Moment" remains.

    Globex Mining as a beneficiary of several trends at once

    But where do opportunities even lie in the stock market? One industry that is benefiting from both global subsidies, the nearshoring trend, and digitization and the increased use of AI is the commodities industry. Whereas critical metals, such as the rare earths needed in chips, rechargeable batteries and other modern technologies, used to come predominantly from China, alternative deposits are now moving into the spotlight. The same applies, with some exceptions, to vanadium, lithium and other industrial metals.

    The Canadian company Globex Mining is an investment company with over 200 raw material projects in its portfolio. The unique feature: All projects are located in North America. The trend of nearshoring states that supply chains are increasingly regionalized. Instead of relying on lithium from South America, which may not be mined in an ESG-compliant way and where there may be dependencies on China due to credit, more and more corporate decision-makers prefer suppliers from safe jurisdictions. The US and Canada are among the top choices for products that are also manufactured in North America. Examples include e-cars, semiconductors and products related to regenerative energy.

    Alkali deal creates fantasy - market capitalization of only CAD 45 million

    For about a week, the share of Globex Mining has been on a small upward flight - the Company, which is currently valued at only about CAD 45 million, has gone up by about 10%. The share price increase may also be due to a transaction the Company announced last week. Accordingly, Edison Lithium wants to acquire exploration rights to alkali projects in the Canadian district of Saskatchewan from Globex. The deal calls for a small cash payment of just USD 35,000, but the further details have more potential: In addition to 156,250 shares of Edison Lithium, Globex will also receive a 2% contingency based on sales of any potential commercial production from the properties. Such alkali projects are related to heat storage, innovative battery technology, and application areas such as the glass and paper industries.

    Globex Mining's stock offers access to numerous resource projects around almost all common commodities. The recent exit suggests that more gems remain dormant in the Globex portfolio. Instead of selling the projects, Globex relies on selected partners to develop projects and secures a share of the profits. This business model could attract attention if commodity prices continue to rise. Investors can take a closer look at Globex as a speculative underlying investment - while greed rules around AI and high volatility is to be expected, Globex Mining stands for tangible values, which are somewhat underestimated than overestimated by the market.

    Acute threat? Armaments and high-tech in the crosshairs: Aixtron, Almonty Industries, Rheinmetall and Hensoldt

    The recent European elections have enabled the conservative camp to make significant gains. Undoubtedly, a whole bouquet of issues has led to the so-called "shift to the right". In times of war, however, the neutral observer may not be surprised that the self-proclaimed peace parties, represented by the colours red and green, have lost considerable ground. After all, the competence for peacemaking and security in Europe tends to be found in the conservative camp. The capital markets currently favour high-tech and armaments, orders are booming, and growth is assured for years to come. It is now crucial for stock market players to take a closer look at these sectors, as the high-yield performers of the first half of the year appear to be correcting more strongly. What will happen here in the medium term?

    Stocks on the verge of a breakout! Rheinmetall, TUI, Desert Gold

    Will Rheinmetall soon reach a new all-time high? An insider thinks so and is buying a sizeable block of shares in the armaments group. The news situation could hardly be better for the DAX-listed company. The price of gold could also break out and rise to USD 2,700 in the next wave, according to a renowned expert. Desert Gold should benefit noticeably from this. The Company's market capitalization is only a fraction of the proven gold resource, and drilling continues. And what is TUI doing? The share is not making any real progress. However, it should benefit from the FTI collapse, and the crucial summer season brings a high booking volume.

    After the election, buy a combustion engine now? Mercedes-Benz, Volkswagen, Globex Mining and BYD on the test track

    The crushing defeat of the green camp in the EU elections has caused a stir in the automotive industry. Will the ban on combustion engines be overturned in favour of a general openness to technology? It is well known that the best conventional vehicles come from Germany, and they are demonstrably no more harmful to the climate than current e-vehicles. Voters have finally lifted the green veil, and the doctrine of the know-it-alls is now in retreat. From a climate perspective, investing in battery storage systems makes sense, but they do not necessarily have to be installed in vehicles. How can investors benefit from the current situation?
