Following record highs, the stock markets consolidated last week. The same was true for high-flyer stocks BioNTech and Standard Lithium. Although investors continue to fear persistently high inflation, both companies can benefit from positive news and have started the new stock market week on a positive note. Thus, the lethargy is over and the old record highs are being targeted. Those who want to hedge against inflation fears should look at Desert Gold as a speculative alternative. The consolidation could soon be over for the gold explorer as well.

    Desert Gold - The Tension is rising

    At Desert Gold (ISIN: CA25039N4084), the tension is rising. Investors are waiting for the completion of the important drilling program at the gold explorer's SMSZ project. The project is surrounded by large mines and gold producers such as Barrick Gold and B2 Gold. Accordingly, the takeover fantasy is high in case of positive results. A gold deposit has already been located at the SMSZ project. The values are up to 6.28 g/t gold. At 410 sq km, the Mali property is the only non-producing area in the region. The last update was dated June 22, 2021, when Desert Gold had reported that more than 82% of the planned drill program of over 230 holes had been completed. Since then, investors have been eagerly awaiting new reports. Last year, investors were able to experience the dynamics that positive drilling results have on Desert Gold stock. The stock shot up from CAD 0.05 to as high as CAD 0.35. A consolidation followed to as low as CAD 0.12 by the end of October 2020. Since then, a sideways phase has formed between CAD 0.12 and CAD 0.23. Currently, the share is available for about CAD 0.13. It seems attractive, as large companies are already mining gold in the region and deposits have been located. Once all results are in, Desert Gold will hear a NI 43-101 resource estimate to further quantify the project's potential. And then maybe a big neighbor will strike.

    Standard Lithium - Capital Increase on the way?

    After the substantial price increases in lithium shares, investors had taken profits in the past week. Also, at Standard Lithium (ISIN CA8536061010). After the share could previously increase by more than 200%. Currently, the Company is working on a large lithium project in the US state of Arkansas. The latest company news over the weekend was that Standard Lithium had filed a preliminary short prospect with authorities in Canada. The "shelf prospectus" secures the Company's ability to issue shares or various other securities in an amount of up to USD 250,000,000 over 25 months. Investors reacted calmly to the announcement on Monday and the share was able to gain slightly. Because, in fact, initially, no capital measure should be pending. At the end of March, Standard Lithium had cash reserves of over CAD 30.26 million. In addition, a loan from German partner Lanxess was converted into shares. The favorable conditions for the lithium market are intact. Car manufacturers are regularly introducing new electric models. As a result, lithium demand should also increase strongly.

    BioNTech - High-Flyer unstoppable

    The consolidation of high-flyer BioNTech (ISIN: US09075V1026) also seems to be over, and the share started the new stock market week on a positive note. After the booster speculations in the past weeks, a first large order now follows. Reuters reported that Great Britain would buy 35 million additional doses of the COVID-19 vaccine from Pfizer/BioNTech. The doses are expected to be delivered starting in the second half of 2022. "As we continue to build up the wall of protection against COVID-19, we need to do everything we can to protect the country for the future - whether that is from the virus as we know it or from new variants," Reuters quoted British Health Minister Sajid Javid as saying. That makes it clear that demand for the COVID-19 vaccine will remain high in 2022 - contrary to what investors initially assumed. BioNTech should thus continue to earn handsomely in 2022. Such booster orders also increase the likelihood that analysts will have to raise their estimates for sales and profits from the Marburger in the coming years. And beyond that, there is still the possibility of a positive newsflow regarding the product pipeline. BioNTech, for example, is working on individualized neoantigen TCR cell therapies for solid tumors and a vaccine against the dangerous tropical disease malaria, among others.


    Consolidation over? It seems to be the case again for BioNTech and Standard Lithium. Desert Gold shareholders should also be happy about a rising share price in case of positive drill results.

    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.
