Since the historic crash last March due to the Corona pandemic, the oil price has stabilized well above USD 50.0. The large investment houses assume further rising prices of the black gold. Experts also see most commodities rising sharply due to the ever-increasing demand caused by new technologies. The scarcity of the required materials will increase enormously in the next few years. As a result, prices are likely to climb dramatically.

    German craftmanship

    German Rohstoff AG, based in Mannheim, has been tackling this problem since 2006. The group around the experienced CEO Dr. Thomas Gutschlag develops and operates various subsidiaries and sites in Germany, Spain, Canada, the United States and South Korea. The investment holding Company's portfolio currently consists of 4 oil and gas producers from the United States, the German Rhein Petroleum, and the Canadian tungsten Company Almonty Industries.

    Corona as an opportunity

    The Mannheimer was not able to escape the decline of the oil shares in the past year either. The share price fell from over EUR 26.0 to below EUR 6.0. Currently, the shares of the German commodity Company are trading at EUR 9.50. A breakout above the EUR 10 mark would generate a strong buy signal, which would be justified in fundamental terms. Last year, Gutschlag used the crisis to acquire new drilling fields at bargain prices. Also, the Company's own oil production was significantly reduced, so that the valuable raw material is 'not given away'..

    The pumps are running

    Due to the oil price recovery above USD 50, production has now once again been ramped up. Overall, Deutsche Rohstoff AG is planning net production of 5,700 to 6,300 barrels of oil equivalent per day (BOEPD) and 2,300 to 2,600 barrels of oil per day (BOPD) from existing wells during 2021. Starting in March 2020 during the Corona Crisis, a portfolio of liquid equity and bond investments in mining companies, especially gold, and oil companies was built up and performed exceptionally well. As a result, EUR 3.5 million income has already been achieved, and according to management, there are additional gains of EUR 8.0 million.

    Pearl in Asia

    With its 12.8% stake in Almonty Industries, Deutsche Rohstoff may have hit the jackpot. After years of development, the Canadian Company is on the verge of completing a megaproject. The largest tungsten mine in the world is to be built in Sangdong in South Korea. At full capacity, the mine will account for up to 10% of the global supply. The financing agreement with KfW-IPEX Bank has already been signed. The project financing is for USD 75.1 million. A buyer for the tungsten concentrates, which are to be produced in Sangdong from 2022, has been found in the current major shareholder, the Austrian Plansee Group. A successful production start should provide an enormous tailwind for both the Almonty share price and Deutsche Rohstoff AG's share price.

    Largest order in history

    Chinese electric vehicle manufacturer BYD has been operating in Colombia since 2012. In 2018, the first buses were shipped to Medellín. The Warren Buffet-backed Company reports the largest order in the Company's history outside of China for electric buses. 1,002 units are to be delivered to the Colombian capital Bogotá, and the entire order is expected to be completed by mid-2022. Colombia aims to improve air quality and reduce inner-city noise levels by switching to electric mobility. The Chinese already delivered 270 e-buses to Bogotá last year.

    Conversion everywhere

    The promotion of greener, cleaner transport, and increasingly stringent emissions standards is not only prompting the South Americans to rethink their approach. In Great Britain, too, the Company is responding to the growing demand for zero-emission vehicles. BYD's British subsidiary announced that it would assemble the chassis of its electric solo and double-decker buses for the British market directly at ADL's plants in the United Kingdom starting in July 2021 with its partner Alexander Dennis Limited. According to a press release, since 2015, the number of electric buses delivered and ordered has increased to more than 500. More than 70% of the electric buses launched in the UK during that period were delivered by BYD and its partner Alexander Dennis Limited, it said.

    Target price increased

    According to analysts at CMB International Securities, a new EV model should further boost sales. Likewise, stronger batteries should ensure better sales figures. The experts maintain the buy recommendation for the "Build Your Dream" Company and increase the price target from HKD 230.0 to HKD 300.0. The Company's share is currently running from high to high and was quoted at the equivalent of EUR 27.72 yesterday. In the long term, we see good opportunities for the Chinese to establish themselves as the most important electric car brand alongside Tesla.

    Order by order

    Scotland has also expressed its wishes. They want to achieve a climate protection target of net zero emissions by 2035 at the latest. The fuel specialist Ballard Power is to help with this. Ballard Power Systems has received an order from Arcola Energy to supply fuel cell modules. The Ballard Power fuel cell units are intended to power a passenger train to be demonstrated during the 2021 UN Climate Change Conference in Glasgow, Scotland, in November. The goal is to convert a Class 314 passenger train provided by ScotRail into an operational and certified platform to develop hydrogen-powered trains.

    Varta, Almonty Industries, Sartorius - on to new all-time highs!

    Trend-following models or concepts such as relative strength or momentum rely on the past winners because investors assume a continuation of the price movement. In chart technology, a strong buy signal is generated when a new all-time high is marked. We show you three dynamically growing companies about to open a new chapter in their corporate history. Who has the greatest potential?

    Aurelius, Deutsche Rohstoff, Millennial Lithium: Together for success!

    Investors appreciate clear investment stories: the hydrogen producer with the revolutionary technology or the electronics company with the hot game console. But when it comes to investing for the long term and keeping risks under control, it's also worth looking at conglomerates or companies with strong partners. Why? If a company has several arrows in its quiver, it increases its chances of hitting the bull's eye with at least one of them.

    Almonty Industries, Standard Lithium, Ford Motors: Want a technology pickup?

    • Resources

    The Ford F150 is the "American Way of Drive" in its purest form. To this day, this monument to US automotive history is the benchmark for pickups in this category and stands for superior driving pleasure on a grand scale. In the US, the legendary F150 has been one of the best-selling cars in the 2.2-ton and above category for decades. With a total of 34 million units produced worldwide, it ranks second behind the Toyota Corolla. Of course, the green wave will also change things in the USA. It will just take a few more years for Tesla to match Ford's sales figures, as total Tesla global production is far behind Ford's US deliveries, with over 2 million vehicles in 2020 alone. Still, a comparison in the 2020 stock performance is striking, with Ford shares up 14% and Tesla making it to 580%. Which would be a good fit for America: Invest in Tesla and enjoy the F150 cult!
