DEUTSCHE ROHSTOFF AG - Analysts: Share has upside potential of around 45%
The key data previously published was recently confirmed with the presentation of the final half-year figures. Deutsche Rohstoff AG identifies, develops and sells raw material deposits in North America, Australia and Europe. For some time now, the main focus of its business activities has been the development of oil and gas deposits in the USA.
The experts of the research Company First Berlin increased the price target of the share significantly from EUR 17 to EUR 24. The reason for this was the sharp rise in oil and gas prices. This development was not reflected in the share price, the analysts said. The Group is currently valued at just under EUR 85 million.
In the first half of the year, the Mannheim-based Company increased its consolidated profit to a high EUR 17.5 million. This figure is all the more impressive, as a consolidated loss of EUR 13.4 million was posted in the previous year. EBITDA more than doubled to EUR 39.9 million (previous year: EUR 15.8 million). Given the continuing good outlook, the Company also significantly increased its guidance for the current and the next fiscal year. The assumed oil prices in both years are below the current price level.
Because of the high profitability, net debt also decreased significantly and the equity ratio increased markedly. Although the oil and gas business is at the core of the Company's operations and therefore at the core of its valuation, investors should not lose sight that the Group has an attractive mining portfolio and has also generated high profits through a trading portfolio. The share is valued extremely cheaply.
ROBINHOOD MARKETS INC - Simply too expensive
The Company's stock market history is only a few weeks old. The share price has been very volatile since the IPO. The new US broker, which shaped an entire industry and can also be seen as a role model for many companies in Germany, currently has a company valuation of USD 47 billion. No matter how you spin it, the stock is hopelessly overpriced. Even the most optimistic should have trouble seeing the potential for the neobroker to "grow" into this valuation in the future.
In the past fiscal year, the fintech posted revenues of USD 959 million, with a small profit of USD 7 million. As of the end of March, Robinhood could count 18 million customers, resulting in USD 81 billion in assets under management. That is still a fourfold increase in assets over last year's figure. Analysts do not expect a small company profit until 2022. All in all, the experts rate the papers with a "sell" vote. In addition, there is the possibility that several former shareholders could soon part with their positions.
KUKA AG - Strong increase in customer demand leads to excellent quarterly results
In recent days, the KUKA share burst above EUR 70. Good half-year figures gave the stock a tailwind, and the Group reported rising demand for robotics and automation solutions in the second quarter. The Germans are among the world's leading suppliers of intelligent automation solutions. In the reporting period, sales increased by 48.5% to EUR 808.2 million. The operating result (EBIT) turned around enormously and stood at EUR 25.6 million after a loss of EUR 43.9 million in the previous year. Order intake climbed by 80.9% to just under EUR 1 billion. Order intake in the first 6 months of the current fiscal year was just under EUR 1.9 billion. The Group thus recorded the second-highest order intake in the Company's history in the first six months. "Our focus areas of robotics and automation are more in demand than ever," said Peter Mohnen, CEO of KUKA, commenting on the developments. "In this regard, we are benefiting from KUKA's global orientation, with strong growth in Asia and North America," the Company leader continued. A really impressive performance. Unfortunately, the free float is relatively low. Analysts consider the stock to be overvalued. However, the stock market obviously sees things differently. As we all know, the market is always right.
A well-performing business and a moderate company valuation make the shares of Deutsche Rohstoff and KUKA an attractive buy. The P/E ratio of the Deutsche Rohstoff share should fall to around 4 in the current fiscal year. Among the three stocks presented, this Company is our favorite. In contrast, investors should avoid Robinhood.
