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.

Alibaba, Memiontec, MorphoSys - Now the rally after the sell-off!

  • Investments

The regulator's pressure is getting bigger and bigger. China has tightened the thumbscrews on technology giants and especially their online education companies - triggering a stock market quake on its own stock market. In some cases, well-known tech stocks lost double digits, even though the affected areas only affect fractions of annual sales. Government regulation of the USD 100 billion-plus education market is likely to weaken confidence in China's stock markets for the long term. And the fact that China's trade relations with the US have also reached a low point does not make things any better. Are there still opportunities?

Barrick Gold, Mineworx, TUI: Summertime is investment time

  • Investments

Invest or consume? Given the difficult months many of us have had, it would be understandable to unwind now: sun, beach and sea beckon despite rising numbers. But it may also make sense to think more long-term in the face of rapid change. Central banks are allowing more inflation and the printing press continues to run fast. Especially in the current summer lethargy, this can be an opportunity for people with foresight.
