In strong upward movements on the stock market, there are always trend stocks that lead the cycle. So far in 2023, GreenTech, IT and AI stocks have consistently produced new highs. Measured by the DAX price index, the market is still 25% below its historic highs, and the NASDAQ 100, the index of technology stocks, is still 700 points or 5% short of its all-time high. However, there are noticeable stocks with promising prospects that have not yet been in the spotlight. Here are some examples.

    TUI - First steps after the capital increase

    **The TUI share demands a great deal of patience from its investors. First, the Corona pandemic hit the balance sheet, followed by the Ukraine war and the associated surge in inflation. For many families, travel has become an absolute luxury good, hitting the package tour target group of Europe's largest full-service provider particularly hard.

    Nevertheless, the summer business is running better than expected. Germans are once again eager to travel, leading to a pleasing increase in bookings. After experiencing external price shocks, with hotel prices rising by 50% and significantly more expensive flights, prices for package tours have also risen. Currently, the Company from Hanover has reached pre-pandemic revenue levels, although the number of bookings has decreased. **Tour operators increased prices for domestic travel by an average of 14.5%, while popular foreign tours rose by around 10%. Destinations such as Greece and Majorca even saw prices rise by 13.5% in each case. TUI successfully extended the maturity of its existing bank debt totaling EUR 2.7 billion, by two years, creating breathing space for the operational turnaround for the time being.

    The TUI share price is currently suffering from the cancelled trips to Rhodes and Corfu due to the forest fires, which prevent newcomers from flying to the islands. The brief excursion above the EUR 7 mark has thus come to an end. However, analysts on the Refinitiv Eikon platform expect an average 12-month target price of EUR 9.17, about 30% above the current level.

    Globex Mining - Best positioned for the Commodity Super Cycle

    Those investors looking for a solid stock in the explorer sector will come across Jack Stoch's resource portfolio. The commodity investment legend has been buying and selling holdings, mining rights and options since the 1980s. As such, his company, Globex Mining, is more of an investment fund for risky, small resource properties that could become valuable in an upcoming commodity boom. The portfolio includes over 200 properties.

    GMX's main interest revolves around precious metals, but important industrial metals are often a rewarding side interest. That is because the availability of rare metals such as copper, nickel and lithium is crucial for the desired goals of decarbonization. These metals are on the list of strategic raw materials of Western industrialized nations. Governments are in the process of reducing their dependence on resource countries such as China and Russia. As a result, the large, unexplored deposits in North America are coming into focus.

    On July 21, Globex was able to report on its latest deal. Partner Burin Gold Corp. has received conditional TSX approval for its agreement with Globex Mining to acquire a 100% interest in the Dalhousie project. The property comprises 31 claims located 53 km east of Matagami, Quebec. It hosts an ortho-magmatic nickel-copper-cobalt deposit, and historical drilling has shown a variety of geophysical anomalies.

    Under the terms of the agreement, Burin will pay CAD 1.5 million upfront and issue 4 million common shares of the company to Globex. To do this, they will carry out CAD 5 million worth of exploration work over a four-year period to earn a 100% interest in the property. Again, a cash and asset deal that moves the Globex valuation forward. The current market capitalization of EUR 31.4 million represents a large cash balance and a well-defined resource holding. If you do the math carefully, you can see a significant undervaluation of GMX stock compared to the sector!

    Vodafone and Deutsche Bank - The catch-up has begun

    Vodafone and Deutsche Bank shares are also making conspicuous chart movements. Yesterday, the globally active telecommunications provider Vodafone published figures that turned out better than experts had expected. After long loss-making quarters in terms of the number of customers, Vodafone can now stop this trend in Q2. 24,000 new contracts compared with a minus of 11,000 from the first quarter. The providers Deutsche Telekom and Telefónica Deutschland (O2) are currently able to retain more customers, and their rates appear more attractive. After all, the share jumped 4.5% to EUR 0.90 after the figures and broke the downward trend that has persisted since December 2021. The next hurdle would be the head and shoulders pattern at around EUR 1.0. Deutsche Bank analysts upgrade to "Buy" with a target price of GBp 155 - around 50% higher than the last price.**

    Deutsche Bank itself also made a whopping jump of over 10% since the beginning of July at EUR 10.25. Things will now get exciting here tomorrow, as there are fresh Q2 figures. A look at the analysts' estimates shows a sales expectation of EUR 7.1 billion after EUR 6.7 billion, but profits are likely to stagnate at best at EUR 1.38 billion, according to the forecasts. That is because, although there is again a margin in the lending business on the assets side, there is currently too little coming out of investment banking. In comparison, Deutsche Bank is still lagging well behind the European Bank Index. The latter has already gained 14% this year, but the DBK share is still down by 12%. From a technical standpoint, with a potential breakthrough of the EUR 11.60 level, a further increase to at least EUR 14 is likely to follow. Exciting!

    Deutsche Bank has already reached positive territory in the 2-year chart comparison of turnaround stocks. Globex Mining and Vodafone are still trailing by a good 20%, but TUI's stock is far behind by over 60%. Source: Refinitiv Eikon as of 23.05.2023

    Investing in so-called laggards requires staying power. Usually, there is a fundamental reason why performance leaves much to be desired. Deutsche Bank has just undergone a huge transformation, and Vodafone can surprise in earnings. Globex is in the trend of neglected explorer stocks, and TUI must first prove that the last capital increase is finally bearing fruit.

    Kraken Energy, RWE, Plug Power - Is Germany reconsidering its nuclear phase-out?

    Calls for a U-turn on the nuclear energy issue are getting louder in Germany. Above all, the AfD, the CDU/CSU, and the FDP, as members of the traffic light government, are calling for a resumption of nuclear power generation. In Europe, Germany's energy policy has already caused considerable head-shaking. Nuclear power can shoulder the base load, does not produce CO2 emissions and is cheaper and less volatile than renewable energies. Many countries agree on one thing: we need to move away from fossil fuels. In the Czech Republic, plans are underway to build 4 new nuclear power plants, and in Poland, the Netherlands and Sweden, there is no longer interest in phasing out nuclear power. It will be interesting to see how Germany's struggle for energy develops.

    The stock market keeps rising - this is indicated by the ever-new highs of prominent indices such as the NASDAQ 100 or the DAX 40 index. However, a closer look reveals some inconsistencies. For example, only 7% of all traded stocks are currently reaching new highs, while over 60% of all listed stocks are falling. In short, global liquidity is aggregated in just a few blockbuster stocks worldwide, while the rest are being left behind. Such bubbles occurred in 1999, 2007, and 2015, followed by a 25% to 50% correction. No one knows when it will happen again, but the party will likely last a little longer. Gold and Silver have been trending sideways at a high level for the past 3 years, but the yellow metal showed the first signs of life last week. What should investors look out for now?

    Uranium with exploding demand! Kraken Energy ideally positioned, hydrogen with Nel ASA and Plug Power in rebound?

    Some politicians are feverishly dreaming of making energy generation climate-neutral! Those who take a closer look at the matter realize that the speed of adaptation to more sustainable electricity production must be supported by sizeable public investment budgets. In Germany and the EU, so-called eco-taxes are levied on private transport, which are used to finance alternative energy generation. That is the green theory, as expensive environmental projects should benefit the general public. Because the EU recently gave nuclear energy the "green light" in its taxonomy, this form of energy is now coming back into focus. The protagonists of this view are the nuclear power supporters France, Spain, Poland and the Czech Republic, with Germany notably staying out of this topic. Worldwide, over 50 reactors are expected to come online in the next few years, and what is needed for that is uranium. Which shares should be in focus now?
