BASF, Desert Gold, Moderna, BioNTech - Keep going, keep going!

The Delta variant is teaching the markets to be afraid. After the economy was humming in the past two quarters, disillusionment is now slowly setting in. The unexpectedly weak labor market data in the US in August demonstrated this. Outside of agriculture, only 235,000 new jobs were created compared with the forecast of 728,000 new jobs. Thus, the market's fear of an end to loose monetary policy and possible interest rate hikes should also be off the table.

    Desert Gold - Significant expansion

    Inflation fears combined with historically low-interest rates are pure gold for the development of precious metals. Thus, even after the jobs data release, the gold price shot back above the important mark of USD 1,810 per ounce and is now at an important resistance area at USD 1,833.94. A breakthrough generated further potential to the next hurdle at USD 1917. Apart from the chart-technical picture, one cannot avoid investing in gold or gold mining shares for portfolio hedging due to the current framework conditions.

    The shares of Desert Gold's gold mining exploration company have corrected well, although the fundamentals of recent weeks have been highly positive. The Company focuses on deposits in the African nation of Mali, with the main SMSZ project located in the eponymous Senegal Mali Shear Zone and the largest contiguous non-producing concession block at 440 sq km. SMSZ is strike-linked to five major mines north and south, including B2 Gold's Fekola mine, Barrick's Gounkoto and Loulo mines, and Allied Gold's Sadiola and Yatela mines.

    Earlier this month, another acquisition was announced with the 30.6 sq km Kolomba concession associated with the Company's SMSZ project. The deposit is characterized by two gold zones that are open at depth and along strike. Both zones have the potential to add additional mineral resources to the SMSZ project in the near future. At Kolomba, gold was last prospected in 2003 at a gold price of USD 363 per ounce by Hyundai, who drilled a total of nearly 31 kilometers with 407 holes.

    Overall, the long-term goal of management led by CEO Jared Scharf is to discover a Tier 1 gold deposit associated with the regional gold-bearing structural zones that run through the SMSZ project. If results are positive, neighbors already located in the region are likely to take notice. Based on this, a major takeover is possible at any time.

    Moderna - The third vaccination

    While in Germany currently, only just over 60% of the population is fully vaccinated, and vaccination fatigue is increasing, vaccine manufacturers such as Moderna and BioNTech are already working on approving their booster vaccines. Moderna submitted an application to the EMA for approval of a third Corona vaccine. Unlike the first and second vaccines, the third booster vaccine is to be half the dose.

    In America, the application has already been submitted to the FDA. BioNTech has also applied for approval of the third vaccination in the USA. The FDA plans to decide on the booster vaccination with Comirnaty on September 17. Even though the stock market values of the vaccine manufacturers are off the charts, momentum is playing on their side. BioNTech could turn up again after successfully testing the USD 325 mark. However, due to the volatility, do not forget to set stop prices.

    BASF - With a tailwind

    In June, the agreement to acquire 49.5% of the Hollandse Kust Zuid offshore wind farm from Vattenfall was concluded. Following approval by all relevant authorities, the transaction, which was scheduled for the fourth quarter, was completed earlier than expected. According to the agreement signed by BASF and Vattenfall, the purchase price amounts to EUR 0.3 billion. In addition, the DAX-listed Company is investing a further EUR 1.6 billion to build the wind farm. Since July, work has been underway, and full operation is expected in 2023, making the project the world's largest offshore wind farm with 1.5 gigawatts.


    The Delta variant is getting in the way of the recovering economy. Due to the disappointing economic data, the central bank will likely stick to its ultra-loose monetary policy, fueling stocks and precious metals. Desert Gold's stock is promising at current levels due to recent acquisitions. BASF, BioNTech and Moderna should be watched; specifically, the high valuation levels of the vaccine manufacturers should not be neglected.

    Attention, turnaround! Lufthansa, TUI, Desert Gold, Deutsche Bank: These stocks are taking off again!

    From several perspectives, the ongoing crisis is a mammoth task for asset managers and private investors. First, after the long uptrend and the absolute boom valuation of growth stocks from 2015 to 2022, no one knows when a sufficiently high discount has been reached to re-enter. Some stocks, such as Plug Power, are very forward-looking and dependent on government contracts. Here there have already been sales valuations of a factor of 200. So is a P/S ratio of currently 12 after an almost 80% share price loss cheap or still hopelessly overpriced? We do not know because the ongoing war sets new market parameters daily. The major indices will therefore continue to search for a valuation basis in a very volatile manner. We pick out a few selected opportunities.

    The current correction has hit interest-sensitive growth stocks particularly hard. The US technology exchange NASDAQ, for example, has lost around 34% of its value since the beginning of the year and its high of 16,670 points. Investors did not even stop at shares in future technologies such as electromobility. But in contrast to top dog Tesla - Musk's shares have halved in value within six months - Chinese competitor BYD is rushing from one high to the next. There is also strong news from a promising gold and silver exploration company. A gold price that experts expect to be positive in the long term could help the company to outperform.

    Due to the uncertain geopolitical situation regarding the Ukraine conflict and concerns about inflation getting out of hand, the most important stock market indices are again turning downward. Germany's leading index, the DAX, is once again struggling with the psychologically important 13,000-point mark. With the exception of defense stocks, there is downward pressure across the board. Fertilizer manufacturers, which initially benefited particularly from the sanctions against Russia, are also correcting sharply and offering interesting entry opportunities for long-term investors. The precious metals markets are also running into attractive buying zones.
