The oldest currency in the world is in demand
In the Canadian province of British Columbia, Scottie Resources is looking for new gold deposits. The company's projects are located in the so-called Golden Triangle, a region that has made a name for itself with its numerous deposits. Scottie Resources owns the Scottie Gold Mine of the same name in the region, which has produced gold in the past. The company has now secured 24,589 hectares of claims in the Golden Triangle.
In a recent announcement, Scottie Resources has announced further airborne work to identify priorities for further ground exploration. In northern British Columbia, an area of 57 km2 is the focus of the surveys. The airborne geophysical surveys will provide interpretations that, in conjunction with sampling and geological mapping, will facilitate subsequent exploration.
CEO Bradley Rourke provides further details: "Scottie Resources continues to aggressively explore and develop the Scottie Gold Mine Project. These geophysical surveys will enhance our technical data and understanding for future drill targeting. Drill progress has been better than expected and over 4,500 metres has been completed to date. Drill results will be released upon receipt."
Is the comparison with Tesla justified?
The BYD shares are currently in great demand. This interest is driven by the analysts' assessments and the company's announcements. The company recently announced that it had received an order for 106 electric buses from the Finnish transport company Nobina. The major customer will operate 64 vehicles in Helsinki and 42 in Turku.
The Chinese group BYD is often compared to Tesla because the company serves the electromobility market with different vehicle models. Besides electric buses, BYD also offers limousines. The model 'Han' is said to have a range of up to 605 kilometres and to have 494 hp as a luxury version.
Does growth also work at a profit?
The US company, Plug Power, is a pioneer of the hydrogen ecosystem and can provide a variety of components for an infrastructure. In a growing market in which innovations are tested and, if successful, demanded in large quantities, there are attractive return opportunities for investors in well-positioned companies.
Plug Power's share price has already performed well, but this does not mean that the price rally must end now. Given that the company is already valued at over EUR 4 billion, investors need to bear in mind that at a certain point there is a growing interest in profitability and that the market capitalization must be competitive. It is a significant industry phenomenon that in the current situation, where there is little supply on the market, companies still do not make money.
