In the 1960s, the Nobel Prize winner Milton Friedman, an influential economist in the USA, studied various models of monetary policy. One of the models of how the Federal Reserve can boost consumption and achieve its inflation targets while preventing deflation would be by issuing cash to the population on a one-time basis. In his example, Friedman describes that a helicopter would drop USD 1,000 banknotes over a community for consumption purposes. This model led to the term 'helicopter money'. After the reduction of interest rates and quantitative easing, the USA will soon provide its citizens with checks to keep the economy going. All drastic measures within a month.

    Entry level for precious metals

    If paper money can be increased at will without a value deposit, then the true value of this money must be questioned. This is the reason why the demand for gold and silver is increasing, because it is not available in a limitless amount and because of this limitation it has a certain price, which results from production costs, supply and demand.

    Since the outbreak of the so-called corona crisis, the price of gold and silver has first risen and then fallen. This phenomenon could also be observed at the time of the financial crisis in 2008. One reason for this is the so-called Long Squeeze - when investors leveraged credit on the capital market and had to reduce their holdings.

    Investors in trouble

    Due to the dramatic price losses on the capital markets, investors are selling all asset classes in order to reduce losses and solve problems. The corona crisis has a much stronger impact on the global capital markets than the financial crisis. The value of the S&P 500 Index has fallen by around 30% over the past four weeks. During the financial crisis, the same percentage correction took about 250 days.

    Investors, companies and politicians currently have to make decisions that nobody would have thought about two or three months ago. The risks of wrong decisions are correspondingly high.

    Diversification into stocks

    The imminent issue of helicopter money in the USA is likely to cause a sustained increase in the need for security among investors. There are various ways to invest in precious metals. In addition to physical forms such as bars and coins, shares in mining companies offer the opportunity to participate directly in the value creation and reserves. Diversification is generally advisable when investing in different companies that are globally active in different regions.

    Barrick Gold and First Majestic Silver are well-known producers and offer an interesting mix for a portfolio with upside potential in addition to the exploration companies Osino Resources and Scottie Resources. Especially in exploration, Osino in Namibia and Scottie in Canada offer interesting opportunities to participate in the company at an early stage. Both companies have already made discoveries and it is now probably only a matter of time and number of successful drilling programs before gold producers knock on the door for takeover talks.

    BioNTech, BYD and Desert Gold: Shares for the rebound

    • Gold
    • Electromobility
    • Biotechnology

    Is the rebound coming? After the heavy price losses of recent days and weeks, the market seems ripe for a countermovement. However, this would require a little more volume in the market. But then, especially companies that have not disappointed operationally should profit. BioNTech, for example, belongs to this group. The Company has published convincing figures, and analysts see up to 50% price potential. BYD's share price should also pick up speed again. Finally, the rapid shift to electric pureplay seems to be succeeding and HSBC has raised the price target. Gold was not a safe haven in the current correction. But it is worth looking at bombed-out stocks here as well. Desert Gold Ventures is one of them. The explorer has started a new drill program and secured financing.

    Barrick Gold, Edgemont Gold, Rio Tinto - Are gold stocks taking off again?

    • Gold

    With the start of the Ukraine crisis, the gold price skyrocketed, but since March 8, we find ourselves in a consolidation. The 200-day line is currently holding, and it could go up again from here. But let's look at the reasons for the weakness in the gold price. On the one hand, there is the strong dollar, which naturally puts pressure on the gold price, and on the other hand, bond yields in the US are climbing again. After the FED announced on May 4 that it would not raise interest rates by more than 0.5 percentage points, which was originally feared, the gold price jumped again. Demand for physical gold remains high. We look at three companies in the gold sector.

    Rheinmetall, Triumph Gold, K+S - Hype or sustainable?

    • Gold
    • fertilizer
    • Defense

    Already during the Corona pandemic, clear winners and losers could be identified. Vaccine manufacturers multiplied, and companies related to online trading also performed better than the market. In the current Ukraine crisis, however, the signs are changing. Suddenly, defense stocks, which were frowned upon a short time ago, are all the rage. Fertilizer companies, benefiting from the sanctions and the resulting supply shortages, are also gaining favor with investors. But how sustainable are the current increases? Gold mining stocks are also doing very well, but in contrast to Rheinmetall, Hensoldt & Co., they are performing much weaker.
