If you want to invest in the most popular stocks, you need nerves of steel. Some stocks generate a return of several hundred percent. Others are involved in spectacular legal disputes and others lead what at first glance appears to be a somewhat speculative existence, as a penny stock. How investors can deal with trending stocks is explained using the examples of BYD, Fokus Mining and Steinhoff International.

    BYD: Most mistakes happen during the euphoria

    The share of the electric pioneer BYD knows no bounds. In the past twelve months alone, the value increased by almost 450%. Currently, the share is trading near its all-time high. Whenever a share marks a new all-time high, it is a buy signal. However, given the rapid rise in the share price, investors must always expect corrections. Experience shows that many private investors make the wrong decisions, especially during dynamic phases of exaggeration.

    If a share, like BYD at present, is quoted at an all-time high, greed and the fear of missing out grows in many investors. Profit-taking is fun, especially during dynamic market phases, and this is even more true for less liquid stocks. Here, selling into rising prices is much more successful. Although private investors will not encounter a liquidity problem with BYD, they should use the new all-time high to reconsider position size and investment target. Investors who have already achieved more than 100% returns with BYD should not forget to take profits.

    Fokus Mining: The profit lies in the purchase

    The Fokus Mining share has already passed the profit-taking phase. After the gold price started to soar after the pandemic's outbreak in April 2020 and knew no bounds, promising gold seekers, such as Fokus Mining, also made significant gains and multiplied. Since September, gold stocks have entered a consolidation move across the board. In Fokus Mining's case, this consolidation was extremely small, with a setback of only 30%, indicating great relative strength.

    The Company operates in a mining region in the Canadian district of Quebec, where it is advancing its Galloway project amid promising infrastructure. The Company already attracted attention with good drilling results last year and is continuing drilling activities in 2021 with sufficient financial resources in place to do so. As the stock is trending sideways in a narrow range, rising gold prices and good drilling results could breathe new life into the stock. Unlike trending stocks, for which everyone is clamoring, investors do not have to chase the share price and can be a bit stingy when ordering - in line with the motto "The profit is in the purchase.”

    Steinhoff International: Who invests in a legal dispute?

    Steinhoff International is another share that is currently making headlines. The holding company, which until some time ago included the Poco furniture chain, slipped into an accounting scandal in 2017. As a result, the Company was hit with lawsuits totaling EUR 8 billion. In the summer of 2020, the Company made a settlement offer: In addition to a payment of USD 1 billion, the allegedly injured parties were to receive, among other things, shares in the fashion retailer Pepkor. So far, no agreement has been reached between Steinhoff International and the plaintiffs.

    But the market currently suggests that something fundamental could happen to the penny stock, which is nevertheless still worth more than EUR 300 million. Goldman Sachs has recently increased its position in the Company's shares several times and now holds around 2.8% in Steinhoff. So will everything turn out well for Steinhoff in the end? Will there be a major consolidation? Can the accounting scandal and the wave of lawsuits finally be put to rest? Any answer would be speculation. While investing in Steinhoff International was still an attractive proposition for gamblers weeks ago, the current drop seems too high. Hoping for a positive outcome of legal disputes is no substitute for an intact investment story.

    Higher, faster, further: BYD, Infinity Stone, Porsche, Varta - The energy transition stock portfolio is wanted!

    • Mining
    • Gold
    • Electromobility
    • GreenTech

    The words "energy turnaround" are used a lot in public. The majority understand it to mean the use of GreenTech to generate energy while avoiding dangerous climate gases. Unfortunately, the leaks from the Nord Stream 2 pipeline, which is not in operation, are leaking the amount of gas into the atmosphere every day that the state of Denmark consumes in an entire week. This makes us painfully aware of how strongly warlike actions counteract efforts to save the climate. On the stock market, it is important to turn our gaze away from current events and toward a more peaceful future, where good ideas for sustainable change will also be rewarded. Which stocks belong in the portfolio?

    • Electromobility

    Due to the explosions in the Baltic Sea pipelines Nord Stream 1 and 2, a switch to other energy sources is inevitable, especially for German industry. Fertilizer producer K+S, based in Kassel, is affected by this. The situation is different with Barsele Minerals. The Canadian company is exploring large gold areas in sunny Sweden and plans to mine up to 3.5 million ounces of the precious metal in the future. Electric car and battery manufacturer BYD, on the other hand, has sufficient resources in its home country of China and is preparing to make the leap into the European market. Find out here which shares are now defying the crisis.

    Barrick Gold, Tocvan Ventures, Newmont, Glencore - Long-term positioning in gold makes sense

    • Mining
    • Gold
    • Commodities
    • Investments

    The FED's recent interest rate hikes and Chairman Jerome Powell's statement sent both equity and precious metals markets into the valley of tears. By all means, the monetary guardians want to curb rampant inflation. Whether this will succeed seems at least questionable. After all, it should not be forgotten that this would put an end to the already sputtering engine of the global economy. In addition, many already highly indebted countries are falling into ever greater problems due to higher interest payments. Thus, it is time to take a long-term, anticyclical position in the precious metals sector.
