5.25% yield with corporate bond

In recent years, Deutsche Rohstoff AG has developed into a successful supplier in the energy sector. In the USA, the company operates more than 80 wells through subsidiaries in the states of Colorado, Utah and North Dakota and in the first nine months of this year produced an average of around 2,000 barrels of crude oil of a total of 4,676 barrels oil equivalent per day.

In this period of the current fiscal year, the company generated revenues of EUR 31.2 million, EBITDA of EUR 19.2 million and a net profit of EUR 2.4 million. The Company recently announced the placement of a EUR 100 million bond with a coupon of 5.25%. With a share price of EUR 13.50, Deutsche Rohstoff AG has a market capitalization of around EUR 70 million.

Buy recommendation with price potential of over 100%

Saturn Oil & Gas Inc. is also focused on crude oil and has produced more than 700 barrels of crude oil in the Canadian province of Saskatchewan on an annual average to date, with around 30 wells drilled, with a trend towards 1,000 barrels by the end of the year. In the first six months of this year, the company generated over CAD 10 million in sales and a profit of approximately CAD 2.8 million. Further information on the business development is expected shortly with the figures for the first nine months.

The analysts at GBC Research in Germany have taken a closer look at the company and rated it 'Buy' with a target price of 0.31 CAD and 0.21 EUR respectively. The company is currently worth around 30 million CAD or 19 million EUR on the stock exchange at a share price of 0.13 CAD. The complete GBC Research Report is available here:

Price losses after burst takeover

K+S AG specialises in the salt sector and is thus an important supplier of fertilizers for agriculture. The company has an international orientation and is also dependent on the potash price in global competition. In the first nine months of this year, the company generated revenues of EUR 3.05 billion and an EBITDA of EUR 480 million. As of 30 September 2019, the company's net financial liabilities amounted to just over EUR 3 billion.

With a share price of EUR 10.40, the stock market value of the company is around EUR 2 billion. More than four years ago, a competitor published a takeover bid for K+S of EUR 41 per share. The takeover did not take place, which from today's perspective is likely to annoy one or the other shareholder.

Barrick Gold, SolGold and BP: is it worth to be invested?

  • Resources

For commodity producers, the price development of the underlying commodity often sets the pace for the share price development. Nevertheless, cost position and new potentials can cancel out this first rule. Diversification across several commodity classes can also prove advantageous. Project quality and the ability to adapt quickly to different conditions are a top priority. Who has done his homework well?

Tesla, Umicore, Almonty: Critical raw materials decide on yield

  • Resources

Raw materials are the key to CO2 neutrality. Whether electricity storage, solar plants, or wind turbines - without raw materials, such as nickel or cobalt, many future technologies cannot be implemented. Yet many raw materials are still extracted from the earth in China under dubious conditions, or come from other mining regions where ESG standards do not play an important role. But tomorrow's customers are already calling for better mining conditions today: Tesla boss, Elon Musk, has already publicly advocated that raw materials used by his company should come from good sources. Here could be an opportunity for mining companies operating in mining regions with high environmental standards.

Desert Gold Ventures, First Majestic Silver, K+S - Resources with potential

  • Resources

Many commodities are currently experiencing a price increase. The precious metals gold and silver are in demand above all because central banks and governments are increasing the money supply with their stability actions, thus creating the need for inflation protection. While gold is largely an independent currency, silver is not only an investment object, but is also used industrially. The energy sector has also calmed down and the price of oil is rising. Copper has recovered from its lows in March 2020. Rising prices mean higher margins, now timing is key.
