Amazon, Blackrock Silver, BYD - Growth, growth, growth!

Despite the pandemic, there is growth everywhere - but why? Looking for the answer to this question, one comes more and more often to the answer that there are hardly any alternatives. Cryptocurrencies are more for the younger generation. Then there are still precious metals, where prices are only slowly picking up, and there are bonds.
However, bonds have become entirely unattractive in the course of the money glut, so the only option left, especially for institutional investors, is to reach for shares. The billions from the bond market thus flow into the stock markets and ensure new highs despite the pandemic.
So you should invest your money in high-growth stocks. Based on this premise, we have taken a look at three promising candidates.

Amazon - The growth story

Few stocks embody growth as well as Amazon. Over the past 15 years, the stock has risen over 15,000%. If you look at a few key figures from this year's first quarterly report, you will find some impressive numbers. Revenue was up 44% and free cash flow was up 9%. Operating income was up 122% and profits were up 220% to over USD 8 billion. In addition to the core business, Amazon web services, Prime Video and the advertising business help maintain the growth course.

Rumors persist in the market that there could be a stock split, which would give private shareholders access to Amazon stock. From experience, this would lead to higher prices, as was the case with Apple and Tesla. On the other hand, it could entail entry into the Dow Jones, which would ultimately attract buyers once again.
Regardless of this, the stock jumped significantly after the quarterly figures. However, after reaching a new all-time high at USD 3,554, the stock consolidated for the time being, which means that a sideways phase between USD 2,871 and USD 3,554 can now be expected. If the rumors of a stock split are confirmed, the price will continue to rise. Otherwise, one should wait for a setback.

Blackrock Silver - Carte Blanche

On April 28, there was an investor presentation by Andrew Pollard, the CEO of Blackrock Silver. He clearly laid out the Company's growth prospects. While "only" 30,000 m of exploration drilling was completed in 2020, this year, it will be 40,000 m. In February, CAD 10.3m in fresh capital was raised at CAD 0.72 per share. In March, the Company name was adjusted as the areas contain more silver than gold, setting it apart from gold explorers.

Tonopah West is the main project in what is known as the "Silver State" of Nevada. Historically, 1,384 g/t silver and 16 g/t gold were mined there until 1950. Comstock is currently the largest silver mine in the Nevada area. However, Tonopah is expected to become the largest. A highway crosses the site and the town of Tonopah is right next door - so conditions are ideal. The project has 100 patented and 19 unpatented claims. The acquisition of 3 new areas directly adjacent to the existing area is expected to be completed soon. Once the acquisitions are completed, Blackrock Silver will own half of the Tonopah area.

The Company's carte blanche is called Silver Cloud and is the Company's second promising project. The focus is on Tonopah West, so there are different scenarios for dealing with Silver Cloud. There is the possibility to sell the area and take royalties, possibly bring a strategic partner on board, or a spin-out could be possible.
Currently, 17,000 m of the drilling program has been completed and results are expected to be available by June at the latest. If the successful drilling is confirmed, then the share has enormous catch-up potential - the silver price is rising and the share was trading at over CAD 1.60 last year and is now only at CAD 0.78.

BYD - Sales on the rise and potential already demonstrated

BYD is also showing signs of growth, with sales of e-cars increasing by 113% in March alone compared to the same period last year. Competitors NIO and XPeng together could not sell as many cars. Still, the stock has been downgraded in rating by various addresses and it has lost over 30% in value since its all-time high.
The Company also wants to increase its sales in the battery market. The founder of BYD recently let it be known that the Company would like to offer the blade batteries to other carmakers and is in talks with almost all brands. The unique selling proposition (USP) of the blade batteries is the range of over 1,000 km.

The stock is currently at the 200 EMA and is at the lower end of the last up-swing, which extended to HKD 278 and started at HKD 157. The risk-reward ratio is good at this level. A close below HKD 157 would cloud the picture significantly.

SGL Carbon, Millennial Lithium, Standard Lithium, Blackrock Silver - Millions of batteries needed!

  • Silver

If current trends in Germany remain valid, the share of electric vehicles in new sales will shake the 25% mark in the next 5 years. In a recent forecast, the Center of Automotive Management (CAM) predicts new car sales of around 480,000 battery-electric cars and plug-in hybrids this year, representing a good 15% share of new registrations of an estimated 3.3 million passenger cars. The assumption is that battery and plug-in hybrid vehicles will each account for around 50%. By 2025, according to the forecast, the e-vehicle share will rise to 27% of new sales, of which about 65% are expected to be pure electric vehicles. The scenario for the battery industry is thus set.

Steinhoff, Silver Viper, Nordex - To all the savers: Save your money!

  • Silver

Consumer prices in the USA rose to a whopping 5.4% in June. That is the highest increase since 2008. The Federal Reserve is challenged but continues to keep its feet still and continues with the ultra-loose monetary policy since, in their opinion, it is only a temporary loss of purchasing power of the US dollar. The European Central Bank is now following suit with its change in strategy, opening the door for further demonetization. Protect your assets and invest in precious metals for the long term.

Whereas in the past central banks were quick to stop rising inflation through a restrictive monetary policy, this has now changed fundamentally. In fact, this is the hour of precious metals. Nevertheless, silver, a precious metal that is becoming increasingly important in industry, has been fluctuating between USD 20 and USD 30 for the past year. Below are three papers that can be used to take advantage of the cyclicality in the commodities sector.
