The German economy is shrinking, and there is no sign of an end to the downward spiral in the current year. Only the defense industry, which was dubbed socially harmful before the Ukraine conflict, is acting as a growth engine, with shares in the sector rushing from one high to the next. The growing and likely continuing demand for defense goods is increasing the need for critical metals. After a prolonged correction, copper, lithium, and others may now have completed their bottoming out.

    Rheinmetall - The engine of the German economy

    The German economy is weakening, and there is no end in sight to the slump. After the gross domestic product shrank by 0.3% at the end of last year, the German Institute for Economic Research expects economic output to fall further in the first quarter. The defense industry is one of the few sectors currently experiencing an upturn. Since the invasion of Russia, business has been booming, and the order books of Rheinmetall and Hensoldt & Co. are bursting at the seams.

    The importance of the Company's flagship, Rheinmetall AG, has grown considerably outside Germany since the Ukraine conflict. The most recent order comes from a European NATO state, which has commissioned the Düsseldorf-based company to supply artillery rockets for multiple rocket launchers. The order volume amounts to over EUR 300 million net. The strategic expansion of the portfolio to include rocket artillery is beginning to bear fruit here, following the ground-breaking ceremony for a new plant in Unterlüß, Lower Saxony, in mid-February, which will produce components for rocket artillery in addition to explosives and artillery ammunition.

    After weeks of a bull run and reaching an all-time high of EUR 436.50, Rheinmetall's stock is currently taking a breather. A pullback to the range around EUR 400 would be more than normal due to the oversold situation.

    Globex Mining - Underlying assets pick up

    The conditions for an increase in the intrinsic value of the portfolio are currently better than ever for the commodities incubator from Canada. In addition to the fact that gold is close to its all-time high, the precious metal silver is also continuing to rise. In addition, industrial metals such as copper and lithium have bottomed out after a lengthy correction, which could indicate a long-term countermovement.

    The share price of Globex Mining also jumped by more than 5% to CAD 0.83, enabling the share price to break through the downward trend established in December. The next short-term target will likely be the 200-day line at CAD 0.88. Beyond this, the first significant resistance level is CAD 0.96.

    The fact that the debt-free company, valued at 45.87 million CAD, has significantly higher potential is evident when looking at its broadly diversified portfolio, boasting a staggering 247 projects. These projects are strategically located in areas with low political risk in Eastern Canada, Germany, and the US. The spectrum of holdings includes 123 precious metals, 68 base metals, and 56 specialty metals and industrial minerals, all of which are crucial for achieving climate goals.

    Globex Mining receives a regular cash flow from income from royalties, the sale or lease of mining rights and the pro rata collection of minerals sold. As at the end of February 2024, 100 properties had been awarded to licensees. In addition, the licensee is responsible for the exploration of the projects and bears all costs.

    In addition to the ever-growing portfolio, the Company, led by mining veteran Jack Stoch, holds more than CAD 25 million in cash, shares and marketable securities. The latest acquisition is the purchase of eight unpatented gold-silver claims totalling 66.88 hectares. The project area is located on the northwestern edge of the historic Crescent mining district on the western slope of the McCullough Mountain Range. Globex has already completed initial field work, including geologic mapping, and has collected a total of 65 rock samples on the Red Star property and two off-property samples.

    Fisker - Rescue from Japan?

    Could there still be a lifeline for the crisis-ridden Los Angeles-based company? According to speculation, the rescue could come from Japan. According to Reuters, Nissan is said to be seeking a stake. Such a partnership could allow Nissan to enter the market for electric pick-up trucks while potentially saving Fisker from bankruptcy. According to speculation, Nissan could make an investment of over USD 400 million in Fisker's truck platform, with the aim of producing a pick-up based on it in the United States from 2026.

    Fisker is unlikely to survive on its own. Despite drastic management measures, including the dismissal of around 15% of employees, the electric vehicle manufacturer posted a net loss of USD 463 million in the fourth quarter on revenues of USD 200 million.

    Following the possible rescue, the share price rose by more than 50% to USD 0.58 but gave up half of its gains yesterday (Monday) and is currently trading at USD 0.48. An investment here resembles a game of roulette.

    Rheinmetall was able to secure another three-digit million order. Rising precious metal prices and the bottoming out of other commodities should significantly increase the intrinsic value of Globex Mining's holdings. Fisker could be rescued at the last minute by the Japanese automotive company Nissan.

    Attention Nvidia! The turnaround check for Nel ASA, Saturn Oil + Gas, Lufthansa and TUI

    It looks like a peak is forming in Artificial Intelligence. The most prominent share here is Nvidia. With a spectacular rally, the value has surged by over 100% in just 6 months. However, the share price is now stuttering, and there have been no new highs for days. The charts for TUI and Lufthansa also show an upward reversal. The latest wage negotiations have tightened the cost structure considerably. Also, a significant amount of revenue has been lost due to the numerous strikes. And now the Middle East crisis is flaring up, making the entire region a risk for holidaymakers. However, the rise in oil prices is giving oil companies a new lease of life. Here is a list of interesting investments.

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

    • Mining

    • 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?

    Discount battle over: Commodities on the counter-offensive! Rheinmetall, Power Nickel, BASF and Varta in focus

    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.
