GameStop, AMC, Bitcoin Group, Triumph Gold - Chaos is the order of the day!

Now the stock market must show how much steam is still in the boiler. Again, the DAX could mark a new ATH the day before yesterday; it was at 15,687 points. Here the air was then somewhat thin, and the afternoon brought a correction to below 15,600 points. The investment community has taken a rest here for the time being. The volatility as a fluctuation indicator even came back strongly in the last few days but then fell back below 20. This indicator shows that the need for hedging is probably dwindling, i.e. the interest of the investment community is instead directed upwards. Some stocks are worth keeping on the radar.

    GameStop and AMC - The second squeeze-wave is underway

    Whether Reddit or other platforms - the madhouse is perfect. While analysts warn of the overvaluation of the titles GameStop and AMC Entertainment, the traders, fueled by social media amounts, continue to buy blithely. Again, this leads to significant premiums for both stocks and, at the same time, triggers further short of hedge funds. Earlier this year, an angry mob of amateur investors tried to bring hedge fund Melvin Capital to the brink of bankruptcy. Big investors ultimately had to bail out the hedge fund - but even a bust would have been nothing out of the ordinary for the stock market, with liquidity at an all-time high.

    GameStop has risen again by 80% in the last two weeks; the cinema operator AMC even brought it to over 200% plus. Pending losses from short-sellers have recently added up to more than USD 9 billion. The clock can therefore be set according to when the next hedge fund bankruptcy threatens. Whether long investors will have their fun with the two stocks is also not clear because, from a purely analytical point of view, both stocks are highly overpriced. According to an executive at analytics firm S3 Partners, AMC's short sellers have increased their exposure by about 3 million shares in the last month. In contrast, GameStop's short sellers have slowly unwound their positions over the same period. About one-fifth of the shares available for trading in each of the companies remain short. Exciting.

    Bitcoin Group - Staring down the line

    Cryptocurrencies are slowly calming down after bitcoin corrected more than 50% from the top. Now the comments of market participants hold the balance. Only sporadically, price targets above USD 50,000 are still mentioned. Of course, there are also the prophets who continue to conjure up a rapid rise.

    One of them is Mark Yusko, the CEO of Morgan Creek Capital. He sees even more potential for the No. 1 cryptocurrency after the correction than ever before. He boldly predicts a price of USD 250,000 per BTC within the next 4 to 5 years. Bitcoin, in his opinion, will relentlessly chase the monetary value of gold (currently around USD 4 trillion) and soon reach a capitalization of USD 5 to 7 trillion.

    Bitcoin Group's stock is a profit driver of the whole digital currency revolution. As an investment company and trading platform, the Company benefits from both the processes and the general market development of the entire asset class. The Bitcoin Group share price has settled at around EUR 40 after a 50% crash. Currently, investors are staring at the line because it will certainly go up again with the next BTC rally.

    Triumph Gold - A good opportunity in the Yukon

    Those who doubt the value of cryptocurrencies should turn more to gold. Here, there was most recently a chart breakout above USD 1,830. Now the USD 2,000 mark is in the picture. Parallel to this, silver and platinum are also running upwards.

    It has recently become somewhat quieter around the share of Triumph Gold Corp, formerly known as Northern Freegold Resources Ltd. But since one week the value increased without warning a good 25%. I wonder if some are already suspecting the next gold find. Triumph is a Canadian-based explorer focused on a few properties in the Yukon Territory. The flagship project hosts three world-class mineral deposits in the extensive section of the Big Creek fault zone.

    Newmont is a well-known shareholder of Triumph Gold and operates its Coffee Creek project in the immediate vicinity. The existing infrastructure also benefits both companies. In 2021, Triumph secured the Big Creek property, which is expected to host gold and industrially recoverable copper. Drilling is currently underway in both areas, and the potential of the Dawson Range copper-gold district has already been historically proven. As a result, we expect timely surprises.

    Triumph's stock has a current capitalization of just under CAD 30 million at a price of CAD 0.21 per share. Triumph Gold is a very promising addition given high inflation figures and rising precious metal prices.

    Barrick Gold, Globex Mining, BP - Commodities In the spotlight: Supercycle started?

    • Mining
    • Gold
    • Silver
    • Commodities
    • Oil
    • Gas

    Global demand for commodities is reaching new heights, partly driven by increasing geopolitical tensions. The exchange of attacks between Iran and Israel is a case in point. This conflict, deeply rooted in religious and political differences, continues to escalate and could have far-reaching consequences for international stability and commodity markets. With this latest escalation of the Middle East conflict, security aspects in the global competition for important resources such as gold, silver and copper are taking center stage. China is demonstrating its hunger for resources. However, the price of oil has also risen recently. There has long been talk of a commodity supercycle. Perhaps it has now finally begun. Where should one invest now?

    Since the bombing of Israel by Iran, the clocks are ticking differently in the Middle East. The next stage of escalation has been reached. If Israel now uses the right to defense as an opportunity to initiate something bigger, it is here: the conflagration. Gold and silver are shining as safe-haven currencies and pulling long-neglected commodity shares through the roof. Now is the time to keep the sails in the wind and ride the long-awaited upward momentum. In the energy transition, strategically safer jurisdictions that can safely serve the growing hunger for commodities are still in demand. We highlight a few opportunities.

    The cannons are thundering, and gold and silver remain in demand! Barrick, Newmont, Desert Gold and SMT Scharf in focus

    The overnight attack by Iran on Israel underscores the current geopolitical uncertainty. Regardless of whether there is further escalation in the Middle East, the world has already changed dramatically since February 2022. This includes shifts in investor behavior. Until the first quarter of 2024, shares in the artificial intelligence and high-tech sectors were bullish; now, defense stocks and precious metals are on the agenda. After decades of disarmament, NATO, in particular, is now facing a decade of rearmament, and private investors are expressing their restraint in consumption by increasing their focus on private security. This is reflected in the increased purchases of gold and silver. For years, precious metals have been stable guarantors of the daily dwindling purchasing power. We believe that the new valuation cycle in the commodities sector is only just beginning, which is why we are examining favorable entry opportunities.
