Table of contents:
Born in Munich, he first studied economics and graduated in business administration at the Ludwig-Maximilians-University in 1995. As he was involved with the stock market at a very early stage, he now has more than 30 years of experience in the capital markets.
Aspermont Ltd. - Its own financing platform in the making
If you are looking for expertise in media and capital markets in Australia, Aspermont Ltd. is the right address. Aspermont earns through constantly increasing advertising revenue, which results from the growing user base. It currently has 250,000 monthly active users, which adds up to 7.5 million digital contacts. The annualized subscriber contract volume is currently AUD 8.9 million, with average revenue per user (ARPU) growing at a respectable 14% (CAGR) for the past 4 years.
Yesterday, Aspermont presented its Q1 results for 2021: Good growth was achieved in all areas, except the segments affected by COVID-19, i.e., the LIVE events. Subscription inflows were up 13% year-on-year, and quarterly revenues increased by more than 200% to AUD 0.4 million on a cash flow of AUD 0.6 million. The rising figures resulted from new product launches with higher gross margins and greater diversification of the service offering.
However, Aspermont is shifting its focus in a new direction. The Company has invested heavily over the past two decades in building a B2B digital media distribution business model to deliver high-quality content to a growing global subscriber base. In doing so, Aspermont's B2B model is highly scalable in terms of new countries, complementary business segments and languages. In addition, Aspermont has increasingly expanded its leading position as a B2B media specialist in the commodities sector.
With the current stock market development, Aspermont is now entering new waters. The high refinancing needs of young companies suggest opening up new dimensions by launching a financing platform. Aspermont is sitting on a vast database of potential investors who many parties have approached in the past regarding investments. However, Aspermont could do business much better from a single source with suitable broker cooperation. On the one hand, one has the demand side, i.e., the investor, and there has been a close relationship with the capital-seeking companies for years. The result: A new financial services provider would be born, the number of hits in all segments would be incomparably higher than today - a quantum leap! With a capitalization of AUD 46 million, the stock exchange has not yet valued this potential at all because you can still buy the freshly launched share in Frankfurt at prices below 2 cents.
Baaderbank - Smooth tenfold in 12 months
The German Baader Bank AG is a classic broker with many managed order books in domestic and foreign stocks. The exploding stock market turnover also leads to a constant flow of orders around the clock at Baader. As an off-exchange price authority, they are available for their customers from 8 am to 10 pm.
In another area, Baader Bank manages asset managers and so-called Robo-advisors, which act as modern digital investment specialists equipped with various algorithms. This business is growing very strongly at Baader and is bringing in a continually increasing commission income; the trading profit is growing and growing. Baader shares had a relatively tough time until the end of 2019, when the business was restructured entirely and loss-making areas were closed. Since May 2020, everything now seems to be in butter, and the share price has already gained over 800%.
The figures are worth reading: In the fiscal year 2020, Baader Bank was able to bring in earnings before taxes of EUR 56 million, after EUR 68 thousand in 2019. The strong result was the continued high securities turnover on the stock exchanges and trading platforms. In particular, the bank benefited from the rising number of accounts managed and securities accounts on its in-house trading and booking platform. The Executive Board of Baader Bank expects even better results for 2021, and shareholders are already jubilant at prices above EUR 10.00.
Bitcoin Group SE - In the wake of exploding crypto demand
Bitcoin Group SE is a direct profit driver of the crypto boom and is enjoying a dynamic start to the current year. As with other trading service providers, the customer activity to be recorded was enormously high, as shown by the sales figures, especially since 2020. Thus, on the cryptocurrency trading platform Bitcoin.de, it has been possible to achieve the third-best monthly result to date. Only in January 2018 and December 2017 have even higher results been achieved. At that time, Bitcoin had seen the USD 20,000 mark for the first time.
Consequently, the management is now very confident for the further course of the year, partly due to the now completed integration of Bitcoin Deutschland AG into futurum bank AG. Growth is now to be accelerated, and the launch of the new trading system in the second quarter, which is expected to provide a significant boost in customer acquisition for Bitcoin.de, seems important in this context. The further price trend of Bitcoin will also be decisive because as a trading house, one has an abundant stock at the central hub for all traded Coin varieties.
The Bitcoin Group stock traditionally has a high correlation with bitcoin. From a chart-technical perspective, it is now a matter of overcoming the resistance at EUR 60.00; yesterday, the price set off in the direction of EUR 63.00. It is looking good!
