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.

    2021 was a consistently strange year. Corona surprised with more new variants, Olaf Scholz became German Chancellor and the prices for gold and silver, despite ever-rising inflation, developed downwards towards the end year. While in the past many investors have relied on cryptocurrencies as a hedge against inflation, perhaps the recent price capers of the leading cryptocurrency, Bitcoin, could make investors rethink.

    Inflation is galloping, so the central banks will have to react soon. In the matter of COVID-19, an endemic is expected after the overcoming of Omicron. That would likely bring a boom to the economies. The high volatility on the capital markets has now manifested itself, and the basis of the argument changes almost daily. For us, it is a suitable opportunity to take a look at highly volatile investment vehicles. Actually, the sails are set, but inflation can still dash the party - but that would again be a buying argument for the precious metals!

    The road to success is sometimes rocky and characterized by imponderables. Especially on the stock market, unclear situations can be good opportunities in the long run. Sometimes the market doesn't buy a company's long-term plans, or a fundamental situation overshadows what is actually a good investment story. We present three companies where there is currently a bit of sand in the gears and explain whether opportunities can arise.
