GameStop, wallstreet:online, Nikola - It goes on blithely

The ECB is following the lead of the FED. Although some council members warned not to ignore the risk of too high inflation, an end to the ultra-loose monetary policy is not in sight. Only the purchase of government and corporate securities under the Corona emergency purchase program should be "moderately" lower in the fourth quarter. The pro-growth decision is a balm for the stock markets. New highs should follow after the last mini-corrections.

    wallstreet:online - Pure growth

    The transformation into a financial services provider with an integrated community continues unabated, as already shown by the preliminary, unaudited figures for the first half of 2021. According to these figures, the Group increased its revenue by around 57% year-on-year to EUR 23.8 million in the first six months. Operating EBITDA before new customer acquisition costs for the Smartbroker rose to EUR 9.0 million, as expected, and almost doubled compared to the first half of 2020 when this stood at EUR 4.4 million. Operating EBITDA does not include customer acquisition costs for the Smartbroker, which amounted to just under EUR 8 million.

    Smartbroker's key growth figure, assets under management, rose to EUR 6.8 billion in the first six months, a threefold increase on the same period last year. These are in over 187,000 custody accounts, of which over 142,000 are customers of Smartbroker. The goal remains to open 200,000 accounts by the end of the year. Although growth weakened somewhat after the exceptional first quarter, also driven by meme shares, the already pronounced revenue forecast of between EUR 45-50 million is to be maintained. That makes the Smartbroker number one in terms of customer deposits and the clear number two among German neobrokers in terms of customer numbers.

    Particularly noteworthy is the fact that all areas of the Group contributed to growth. The reach of the financial portals averaged 376 million page impressions per month and increased by 37% year-on-year.

    The market capitalization of the wallstreet:online Group is currently EUR 345.80 million. The neobroker Trade Republic, which the Berliners were already able to leave behind in terms of assets under management, brings it to an incredible EUR 5 billion. So there is still a lot of catch-up potential here.

    Nikola - A new bride

    Initially, a financial investment by General Motors in truck manufacturer Nikola was planned last year. However, after the allegations of fraud, General Motors distanced itself visibly. Now Nikola presented a new strategic partner in the form of German automotive supplier Bosch. The US Company announced in a press release it will purchase key components such as the fuel cell stack, the compressor, the power electronics and the control unit with sensors from Bosch as part of a strategic agreement. These will then be assembled into fuel cell power modules at Nikola's US plant in Arizona. The first application is said to be planned in the US version of the Nikola Tre FCEV.

    Speculative investors could now get their money's worth with Nikola. After bottoming out in the EUR 9 area, the share has recovered to over EUR 11.45 in recent weeks. Exceeding the mark could generate price potential initially in the first target area at EUR 14.

    GameStop - Analysts disappointed

    Everyone knows the share of GameStop, at least since the meme hype when small investors in Reddit forums agreed to shoot the share "to the moon" to hurt hedge funds who bet on falling prices. The US video game retailer released its second-quarter numbers, which were encouraging thanks to a rebound in trading after the Corona lockdowns.

    Revenue increased by just over a quarter year-on-year to USD 1.18 billion. GameStop narrowed its loss from USD 111.3 million to USD 61.6 million. However, the Company was well below the estimates of analysts. An investment is still not pressing due to the astronomically high market capitalization of USD 12.93 billion.


    Monetary policy remains loose, and interest rates are historically low. As a result, the way is clear for growth and further rising capital markets. wallstreet:online is clearly undervalued compared to its neobroker competitors. Nikola is a speculative trading idea, and GameStop is not a serious investment at the current valuation.

    Furious debt mania, a thorough portfolio check is necessary! Allianz, Blackrock Silver, Deutsche Bank and Commerzbank in focus!

    From one high to the next - it is not just equities that are booming in Europe, the US and China; it is mainly debt. First Corona, then Ukraine, now Israel - there is no end to the flood of borrowing. Armaments are now being financed on credit, while the accompanying recession is draining the coffers. Real estate is becoming a hot topic: New builds are hardly affordable for families, and old buildings are swallowing up thousands of euros in green-tinted renovation costs. The Federal Constitutional Court has now put a retroactive stop to the creative spending culture in Berlin, and a new budget plan is necessary. Keeping a clear head as an investor in this environment is challenging. We look at the opportunities in the financial sector, but perhaps precious metals will also be the anchor that saves the day.

    Climate change is increasingly threatening our lives, with few areas worldwide considered safe. Sea levels are rising, and polar ice is melting. Many regions are experiencing severe storms and increased rainfall, while others face growing risks of heatwaves and droughts. Since the Paris Climate Agreement at the latest, countries have been stepping up their efforts to limit global warming to 1.5 degrees Celsius. This has created a market that experts predict will increase eightfold by the end of the decade.

    Deutsche Bank, Globex Mining, Barrick Gold - Enthusiasm for gold is back

    Despite several interest rate hikes, the price of gold has recently risen to over USD 2,000 again. Even though the latest increase coincided with the attack on Israel, this is unlikely to be the reason for it. Instead, the high demand from central banks is responsible for the steady gold price. Within the first 9 months, the central banks bought a whopping 800 tons of gold. That is a new record. The geopolitical tensions could also turn more and more private individuals into so-called gold bugs, who are making provisions for crises and assuming that gold will continue to rise in the long term. As the Fed has paused interest rates, this could give the gold price a further boost.
