March was a dark month for the shares of Deutsche Bank and Vonovia - the prices of both companies fell by more than 20%. In recent weeks, the uncertainty surrounding banks and real estate companies was too great. At the same time, the gold price rose significantly and even surpassed the USD 2,000 mark. We look at what the contrasting price movements mean and where laggards can be found.

    Vonovia and Deutsche Bank: What remains of the price quake?

    First Silicon Valley Bank, then Credit Suisse and finally even Deutsche Bank? At times it looked as if the market would now even set its sights on the Blue Bank. In the meantime, however, the situation has eased for the Frankfurt-based bank. After risk premiums in the interbank business rose sharply at times, they have returned to normal. The share price has also been in recovery mode for a few days. The market now agrees that the fall of Silicon Valley Bank was a one-off and that the wave from the US struck Credit Suisse, which had already been severely battered for months. But does this mean that the market risk is completely averted?

    It now seems clear that the rising interest rates are by no means exclusively positive for banks. Real estate companies and all companies with increased refinancing needs are now also under special observation. The Vonovia share lost as much ground in March as Deutsche Bank. Here, the market is pricing in property value losses in addition to more expensive refinancing. Large housing packages are almost unsaleable at the moment.

    From concrete gold to real substitute currencies

    While shares in banks and real estate companies, such as Deutsche Bank and Vonovia, have recently lost sharply, the price of gold and Bitcoin have risen sharply. Both asset classes are considered substitute currencies and safe havens outside the established financial system. The gold market, in particular, is comparatively small, so increased investment demand can quickly ensure dynamic upward movements. This is another reason many investors see physical gold as a long-term nest egg.

    Globex Mining: A piggy bank with potential

    Globex Mining is set up like a piggy bank with currencies from all over the world. The Company buys commodity projects and properties in North America and, together with partners, develops them, or sells them for cash and profit-sharing. Globex Mining holds a total of more than 200 commodity projects. Among them are gold and silver, copper, lithium and other battery metals. Like any investment company, Globex Mining is traded on the stock exchange at a discount to the total of all assets: The Company weighs in at less than CAD 45 million.

    The upward movement of gold has so far only slightly boosted the price of Globex Mining. However, if one takes a long-term look at the chart, it shows the beginning of a possible upward movement starting from the lows in December. Because of Globex Mining's numerous projects and the general need for commodities, the portfolio is extremely interesting: a successful exit alone can lead to funds flowing into the Company that are considerable in terms of the current market value. For investors who do not shy away from holding companies and conglomerates, Globex Mining is a company that has not yet completed the upward movement in precious metals and also has something to offer in other metals, such as lithium.

    Even if the situation around stocks such as Deutsche Bank or Vonovia seems to have eased, the past weeks show that there is pressure on the kettle. Interest rates will continue to rise for the time being because of inflation. It is by no means certain that the situation will remain under control and that the central banks will master their balancing act between financial market stability and maintaining purchasing power. Nearly unnoticed shares such as Globex Mining can be a sensible addition to a portfolio in the current market phase. Even a successful exit could lead to the remaining projects - more than 200 - being reassessed by the market.

    Barrick Gold, Desert Gold, Renk - Golden times everywhere?

    • Mining
    • Gold
    • Defense

    The world is full of economic uncertainty and geopolitical tensions. These are ideal conditions for gold, which is still considered a safe haven. There are now several factors that point to a sustained upswing in gold prices. One factor is the increased involvement of central banks, which are increasing their reserves to an extent not seen for decades. Another factor is the discussion within the BRICS nations about introducing a new currency backed by gold as a counterweight to the dominant US dollar. Therefore, today, we look at two gold companies and shed light on Renk, a representative of the defense industry, which is also experiencing golden times.

    The Canadian company Saturn Oil & Gas has announced its capital and operating budget plans for 2024. The main focus is on sustainable oil and gas production with high capital returns, a structured capital allocation and continuous rapid debt repayment. Plug Power is also gaining momentum and taking strong cost-saving measures to maintain its position at the forefront as a green hydrogen provider. Deutsche Pfandbriefbank (pbb) came under the spotlight last week as investors dumped shares due to its involvement in the US office real estate market. Is this bank a falling knife, or does this week offer a potential entry point? We provide the background.

    Bayer shocked investors yesterday with the announcement of its dividend cut, which shouldn't have been much of a surprise. The Company is burdened with high debt, endless legal fines, and an empty pharmaceutical pipeline. In an initial reaction, analysts have lowered the share price target. BYD, on the other hand, is doing well operationally. Only the share price is not picking up. Will a share buyback turn the share price around? For those who want to profit from the commodity boom with reduced risk, then Globex Mining's stock is attractive. The news flow is strong, and those who act quickly can still register and follow the live presentation of the mining incubator at the 10th International Investment Forum, IIF, today.
