Apple, Scottie Resources, Tesla - where do investments make sense now?

  • Investments

The shares of the largest companies in the world promise high liquidity. Companies with technologies are the focus of investors - especially among the younger generation. So it is hardly surprising that the measures taken by the central banks are leading to a flight from money to shares in companies. Company shares that are very tradable and backed by dividends or profits can be more valuable in the end than the bond of a heavily debt-driven state or its paper money, which could be multiplied virtually endlessly. The situation in the commodities sector is becoming increasingly exciting, as physical gold is in greater demand than ever before, but most investors are not yet focusing on this sector.

Battery cars are part of the problem

Elon Musk is celebrated at the stock markets. You can't really explain it. Where would the company stand today without environmental bonuses and subsidies? In Berlin the creation of jobs and the settlement of further companies is hailed by the new Tesla plant, while elsewhere the lights go out. The battery as an energy storage device is controversial and the energy mix in Germany is not designed for electric mobility.

In June 2020, the Institute for World Economy published a study that shows the increase in CO2 emissions for every additional electricity consumer. While a modern diesel is at 173 g CO2 per kilometer, a battery car emits 300 g CO2 per kilometer. In 2019, Tesla generated USD 780.06 per second in sales. Compared to the leader Volkswagen with 9,202.88 USD per second, this value is very low. It is doubtful whether an innovation that is only appealing with taxpayers' money can survive in the long run.

Golden times have begun

Anyone interested in the oldest currency in the world should take a look at the value added. Scottie Resources from Canada owns the former producing Scottie gold mine and other properties as well as the option to acquire claims adjacent to the Scottie gold mine property. In total, the exploration company owns 24,589 hectares of properties in British Columbia's Golden Triangle, one of the most productive mineralized areas in the world.

Bradley Rourke, the company's CEO, recently issued a news release providing insight into the Company's development: "With our strong financial position, favourable market conditions and abundance of drill targets, we have decided to increase the metres drilled this summer. The addition of a second drill rig allows us to test new prospective zones and improve the cost efficiency of drilling additional metres given that all the infrastructure and personnel are already in place."

The company has now added a second drill rig to its Scottie Gold Project, which will increase the number of holes drilled by 40%, an additional 2,000 metres for the drilling program. A total of 7,000 metres of drilling is now targeted for the 2020 summer season. The current drill program will follow up on the successful work of the 2019 season when intercepts of 7.44 g/t gold over 34.78 m at the Blueberry Vein, 11.72 g/t gold over 10.95 m at the past producing Scottie Gold Mine, and 73.32 g/t gold over 4.38 m at the Bend Vein were discovered.

The air is getting thinner

While Scottie Resources' investors are likely to see a higher share price if the drilling program continues to be successful, Apple's investors should slowly be aware that the trees can no longer grow to the sky. It remains to be seen what impact the global economic downturn will have on consumer behavior. After all, Apple devices are expensive and high-quality premium products and some customers might be tiring out their lifespan in times of the Corona pandemic - and forego buying a new one.

K+S, Grenke, Desert Gold: When does uncertainty become an opportunity?

  • Investments

When shares make losses over weeks and months, shareholders hope for an end to the sell-off. Potential buyers ask themselves whether the investment opportunity has already arisen. But the end of a downward trend can always only be determined afterward and can hardly ever be determined exactly. Rather, investors must shed light on the background to a price decline to decide whether it is permanent or merely temporary. The K+S fertilizer group has already been selling off for many years - on a five-year horizon a loss of more than 80% has been recorded - but what is the reason for this?

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.

Almonty, BASF, Bayer: where is it worth starting now?

  • Investments

The start of the week was marked by price losses. In Europe and North America, the leading indices closed in the red. The fear of further effects of the Corona Pandemic has dampened market sentiment. Given that the banknote presses are still running, the breather on the capital markets is again likely to be short-lived. At the time when a vaccine against Covid-19 receives approval, the economy will once again experience an unleashed boom - provided that people can and may want to return to their jobs. Which shares are worthwhile now?
