"[...] Nickel, therefore, benefits twice: firstly from its growing importance within batteries and secondly from the generally growing demand for such storage. [...]" Terry Lynch, CEO, Power Nickel
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.
Grid Metals - First resource estimate still in the second quarter
Today, anyone looking at high-tech products is encountering a shortage of important metal elements. Due to increased investments in various Greentech solutions such as wind and solar plants, e-mobility or new energy storage systems, a lot of copper and lithium is needed. Both are scarce or can only be extracted regionally and at great expense. Large mining companies are therefore dependent on the help of exploration companies that search for these metals in sometimes remote regions.
The Canadian company Grid Metals (GRDM) has specialized in the exploration of lithium, nickel, copper and PDM metals with its projects Donner Lake, Mayville and Makwa, northeast of Winnipeg (Manitoba). Final drill results have now been released from the completion of the Northwest Dyke winter drill program on the Donner Lake lithium property. Visible spodumene mineralization has been observed in all drill holes within the core area of the dyke, with apparent thicknesses of up to 10 meters at a depth of 185 meters below the surface. Lithium (Li2O) grades vary from 1.13 to 1.60% over lengths ranging from 14 to 262 meters. From these results, management will prepare an initial resource estimate, which is expected before the end of the second quarter of 2023.
Robin Dunbar, CEO of Grid Metals Corp. comments: "The results indicate strong continuity of mineralization in the core area of the dyke, with the pegmatite remaining open at depth and to the south along strike." GRDM's share price is currently hovering between CAD 0.14 and CAD 0.18. With a good resource estimate, it could go high soon.
Nvidia - Welcome to Apple's Trillion Dollar Club
After Nvidia managed to rise to USD 420 by the end of May, the valuation of the popular AI stock reached the trillion-dollar mark. This makes the chip specialist another member of the "Trillion Dollar Club", formed in 2019 by the remarkable rise of Apple's stock. For a while, even Tesla was in on the action. However, the share lost more than 65% of its value at the end of 2022 and had to say goodbye to the club. Currently, Microsoft, Amazon and Alphabet are still in the running.
Nividia has more than tripled in value since mid-2022, leaving the keen observer wondering what the enormous increase in value is all about. Artificial intelligence applications need a huge data analysis platform, and Nvidia can provide just that. The surprising explosion in demand in the data centre segment hit the market like a bomb because this business is likely to grow even faster in the future due to the AI boom. However, other related technologies could also potentially lead to a paradigm shift. Areas such as IoT applications Smart Home, machine learning, and automated driving are gaining prominence.
After a minor correction, the Nvidia share is once again on an upward trajectory, equipped with sufficient dreams of the future. After a low of USD 376, it stood at USD 392 yesterday. On the Refinitiv Eikon platform, there are 49 assessments of the share, with no negative ratings. The median 12-month price target is USD 456 representing a modest 16% increase - not exactly a lot for an outright stock market darling.
Deutsche Telekom - Under the wheels
According to the news channel Bloomberg, Amazon is reportedly working on its own mobile phone offering at bargain prices for its Prime customers. This report brought a 10% plunge to Deutsche Telekom last week, marking the steepest discount since the Corona crash of March 2020.
In terms of customer retention, an attractive contract would indeed make sense. Providers could be the major US network operators Verizon, Dish and even the telecom subsidiary T-Mobile US. It is strange that the US subsidiary wants to torpedo its own business model. Because as a result, the profit margins for mobile phone contracts could come under significant pressure and ultimately also affect the profits of the German "parent". Amazon immediately denied this. The massive sell-off of the Telekom share may also be due to chart price patterns at the turn of the millennium, which recently caused the DTE share to form an SKS formation. This picture would give rise to a correction potential of up to EUR 17.50. Only after that could it return to old highs of over EUR 23.
At the moment, however, the trend is bearish, as the battered price could lead to further selling pressure or even attract short sellers. The experts on the Refinitiv Eikon platform are relatively certain, however, that a target price of EUR 25.60 could be achieved. The share is currently trading at a P/E ratio of 10.8 and offers a dividend yield of 3.7%.
The price fantasy on the NASDAQ is mainly fuelled by high-tech and AI stocks. Since leaving the downward trend at the beginning of 2023, the index has already gained a solid 34%. In nominal terms, it is now only 1,400 points behind the DAX 40. The party will likely continue for a second round.
