We live in a global business environment, though currently we seem detached due to the fight against the Corona Pandemic, business goes on and this too shall pass. Elon Musk is already preparing for the conquest of space with SpaceX and the fierce battle for market share in the automotive sector continues. Raw materials are a key component of the manufacturing industry. Therefore those who can secure access to rare raw materials often gain a decisive competitive advantage. These raw materials can also come in the form of gases and are of crucial importance, especially if they are irreplaceable and cannot be produced artificially.

    ALMONTY INDUSTRIES INC - Access to critical raw materials

    Tungsten is one of the hardest materials on earth. The use of this metal is diverse and often significant. In the past, probably the best known use of tungsten was as a filament in light bulbs. Nowadays the raw material is very often used in the production of alloys. But tungsten is also used in the production of electronic components. Due to its special hardness, components and products made of tungsten are used in the military and aerospace industries.

    The EU has classified tungsten as a critical raw material. Anyone who has access to this raw material in legally secure regions can count on state support. Almonty is one company that benefits from this advantage, because the company owns the Sangdong Mine in South Korea, where the worlds largest tungsten deposits are believed to be found. To enable the company to press ahead with the extraction of the raw material, the German Kreditanstalt für Wiederaufbau (KfW) has committed a senior project financing loan of USD 76 million. First Berlin analysts, recommend Almonty stock as a 'buy' with a target price of CAD 1.45.

    BYD CO LTD - Internal combustion engines save the fiscal year

    In Europe, the Chinese car manufacturer BYD is regarded by investors as a trend indicator for the industry in Asia. The company sells electric vehicles, but also offers those with traditional internal combustion engines. In the first eight months of 2019, BYD sold a total of 295,066 vehicles. Due to the corona pandemic and the reduction of government subsidies for electric vehicles, sales in the same period in 2020 fell by 23.14% to only 226,792 vehicles.

    Sales of plug-in hybrid vehicles fell sharply by 66.2% from 56,572 to 19,122. Sales of SUVs with internal combustion engines increased significantly by 116.3% from 47,157 to 102,002 vehicles. The bottom line is that sales of electric vehicles have halved in the first eight months of 2020 and sales of internal combustion engines have increased by 16.9%. BYD's market capitalization has risen to over EUR 9.6 billion in the past few days. Those who have already invested for 12 months have more than doubled their investment.

    ROYAL HELIUM LTD - many customers, little competition

    The Canadian company Royal Helium focuses on the extraction of the noble gas, helium. The gas cannot be produced artificially and it is usually extracted from underground deposits. Royal Helium has access to around 400,000 hectares of licenses for the noble gas in North America, making it one of the largest market players. The helium market is a niche market and anyone wishing to invest in a company in this sector does not have much choice.

    With growing demand in the healthcare sector and in manufacturing, additional demand is coming from the aerospace industry. The US space agency NASA is already the largest consumer of the noble gas. Given that Elon Musk is forging major space plans with SpaceX, the demand for helium is likely to increase further. In Great Britain, the company 'Hybrid Air Vehicles' is already a major customer for the noble gas. The company developed the Airlander, the largest aircraft in the world that uses helium. In a few years, several hundred of these aircraft are expected to be in service worldwide.

    E-mobility 2023: The Tesla hunters are coming! BYD, Lucid Motors, Tocvan Ventures. Will the Varta share now also fly?

    It Is hard to believe! The Tesla share is once again making a name for itself. Analysts went into the presentation of the annual figures with cautious expectations because there were many negative rumors surrounding Elon Musk's electronics company: Fewer sales? Cars on stockpile? Again, it came as no one had expected it. Elon Musk delivered and simultaneously mocked all the shorties who wanted to push his stock below USD 100 at the turn of the year. This gambit went badly wrong because Tesla was able to deliver even better figures than expected, and there was no stopping the share. With plus 70% in only 4 weeks, the Tesla share belongs to the shooting stars since the turn of the year - the short sellers must have lost their desire completely. But the variety of interesting shares is significant. Where are the opportunities for e-investors lurking?

    Who would have thought it? Since the beginning of the year, the stock markets have been jubilant despite difficult predictions about the economic trend in 2023. High inflation and rising interest rates are not a good breeding ground for the popular biotech stocks because they have to constantly refinance their research expenses. As the risk fee is readjusted as costs rise, investors demand higher premiums for providing money. However, some biotech stocks have taken off since the beginning of the year despite adverse conditions. What is their secret?
