It is well known that a successful long-term strategy in times of high inflation is to invest in tangible assets. Whether it is stocks, gold or real estate, or a mix of these is up to the taste of the individual investor. Looking at the big picture, there is certainly nothing wrong with investing in companies that benefit from the economic development and rising purchasing power of expanding economies. Geographically, Asia is one of the most dynamic regions with large sales markets. We will show you how you can profit from these developments. Who has the best opportunities?

    BYD CO LTD - In expansion mode

    The BYD share has been one of the top performers in recent months. Currently, the shares of the Chinese electric car manufacturer are scratching at a new all-time high. The latest reports make us sit up and take notice; the group is continuing its dynamic expansion mode. BYD recently announced its intention to enter the Indian market soon with an exclusive B2B vehicle.

    BYD has already been present in Indian cities with electric buses for eight years. Now a new chapter is to be opened. Its strategy in relation to the world's fifth-largest automotive market is to launch a multi-purpose electric vehicle from the fourth quarter of 2021. The group thus plans to "participate in every Indian consumer's journey to electric vehicles."

    But it's making headway elsewhere, too. Recently, BYD unveiled two new battery-electric heavy-duty trucks at the ACT Expo in Long Beach, California. These models represent the next generation of heavy-duty electric trucks with improved aerodynamics, energy efficiency and advanced driver assistance systems as standard equipment.

    KAINANTU RESOURCES LTD - Undiscovered Value

    In the long run, the precious metal gold is a good inflation hedge. Investor legends like Jim Rogers are fans of gold and silver. If we look at the last 10 years, the current gold quotation is more at the upper end of the trading range, with a price of over USD 1,800. That allows mining companies to lock in high profits. But investors should also not lose sight of companies that are not yet producing. Exploration and development companies offer attractive value enhancement leverage, even if this has to be bought with a higher risk.

    One such Company is Kainantu Resources. The Canadian-listed gold explorer has its geographic focus on the Asia-Pacific region. Kainantu Resources owns several prospective projects in Papua New Guinea. KRL South and KRL North are located in the well-known mining region, the high-grade Kainantu gold district. They have the potential to host high-grade epithermal and porphyry mineralization. In the immediate vicinity is K92 Mining's high-grade producing gold mine. In addition, the Kainantu Resources properties and the K92 project share the same geology. That is an important indication of the project's upside.

    To capitalize on the potential in the country, the Company recently acquired the May River Project, which comprises three properties totaling 1,697 sq km. Previous drilling returned gold grades of 54m at 1.83 g/t, 109m at 1.53 g/t, and 96m at 0.89 g/t. In addition, several copper anomalies were encountered. Currently, the Company has a market value of just under CAD 10 million. With project progress and a rising gold price, higher valuations are inevitable.

    DWS GROUP GMBH & CO KGAA - Price slide and now?

    Only a few weeks ago, the world was in order. The fund company presented strong half-year figures in the wake of the global stock market boom and was thinking aloud about raising its medium-term targets. Net profit increased by 40% to EUR 340 million in the first six months of the current fiscal year, exceeding analysts' estimates. Due to price gains and fund flows (especially ETFs), client assets under management grew to a record volume of EUR 859 billion. In several respects, the investment in the fund house Harvest in China had a positive impact.

    But then the massive accusations of a former employee sent the stock on a downward spiral. The insider accused the Company of massive misrepresentations regarding its ESG investments. In the meantime, even the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) is investigating based on the ex-managers statements. If the allegations are confirmed, this will very likely damage the Company's image and outflows of funds. However, most analysts have not changed investment ratings or price targets after the "scandal". The share price has fallen by more than 15%, which means that the Company currently has a market capitalization of around EUR 7 billion. If the current analysts' estimates for this year and next year are halfway accurate, the stock is favorably valued. The P/E ratio for 2021 and 2022 is 10, and the experts are forecasting a dividend yield of a good 6% for both years.

    Inflation and low interest rates are the precursors to a sustained stock market boom. Different strategies are available for this. If you are betting on electromobility and Asia, BYD is the right choice. The DWS share is currently a little uncertain. The fund company is favorably valued and benefits from the stock market boom, even if there is currently a threat of damage to its image. If you want to combine the facets of shares and precious metals and also take advantage of the opportunities of a still-young company, you should take a close look at the shares of Kainantu Resources.

    Out of defense, into gold!? Renk, Barrick Gold, Desert Gold

    • Mining
    • Gold
    • defense
    • armaments

    On Tuesday, German defense stocks were shaken briefly and sharply. In a flash crash, Renk, Rheinmetall and Hensoldt fell by more than 10%. This indicates that defense stocks have run hot. The future prospects for the companies are undeniably positive, but a consolidation is in order. Gold is an entirely different story. The price of the precious metal is at record levels, but the shares of gold producers are still a long way from their 2020 highs. This applies to the heavyweights like Barrick Gold and Endeavour Mining, but even more so to the explorers. One of the promising explorers is Desert Gold. The Company operates in an attractive region, is on the verge of becoming a Tier 1 mine producer, and is a takeover candidate. Barrick Gold is one of many companies that could make a move on Desert Gold.

    Palantir, Globex Mining, Bayer - The trend is pointing upwards

    • Mining
    • Commodities
    • Gold
    • Silver
    • Pharma
    • Software

    After a successful first quarter of 2024, the DAX and Dow Jones took a well-deserved breather last week. In contrast, the precious metal markets for gold and silver continued their upward trend. Gold also reached new absolute highs of USD 2,354 per ounce. While gold producers such as Barrick Gold and Newmont remained in hibernation, they have been following the rising base price for several weeks now. There is currently also an opportunity for smaller commodity stocks to participate disproportionately in the upward trend.

    Geopolitical uncertainties - Sibanye Stillwater, Saturn Oil + Gas and Barrick Gold benefit

    • Mining
    • Oil
    • Gold
    • Silver

    In addition to the stock markets, which reached new highs last week, the direction of precious metals and oil is also clearly pointing upward. While gold also reached a new all-time high, silver has significant catch-up potential compared to its big brother. In the case of black gold, the current uncertain geopolitical situation could cause oil prices to break through the USD 100 per barrel barrier once again.
