Year-end rally? No chance! The central banks have put a spanner in the works of optimists one week before the festive season. The continued tough stance against inflation is again fueling fears of a recession. There are cracks in the woodwork, and some observers even believe that gold could stand at USD 3,600. We shed light on the situation and discuss three stocks.

    flatexDegiro: Trading land has burned down

    If the mood on the market is positive and prices are rising, then the world is structured simply for growth companies: Every plan, no matter how optimistic, is well received and priced in by the market. During the past weeks, the flatexDegiro share showed that regulatory fine-tuning can sometimes become highly complex, especially in the financial sector. The share came under significant pressure. In the meantime, the analysts at Morgan Stanley see the value of EUR 7.10 as a fair valuation. According to the analysts, a lot of negative news is already priced in at the current level.

    But as is often the case, the results of formulas in Excel spreadsheets only roughly give the market direction. Especially in a weak market environment, even bargain hunters like to hold back once in a while. The current level of EUR 5.80 must be defended; otherwise, the share is threatened with another price slide. flatexDegiro, in particular, depends heavily on the trading activities of its customers. However, many private investors have just lost the desire to trade. It will be exciting to see whether flatexDegiro can defend the current price level.

    Globex Mining: The share to let lie

    While the share of flatexDegiro has oscillated back and forth between sky-high and deathly sad in recent years, Globex Mining knows only one state of mind: With the equanimity of a Frisian crab fisherman, the share simply accepts all events in the economy and politics. Yet Globex Mining offers a business model that fits well into the current times. The Company collects raw material projects, develops them further, forms joint ventures or grants properties to other companies in return for profit shares. Globex Mining focuses on safe North America. The Company has more than 200 projects around trend commodities such as copper, nickel, lead, gold, silver, platinum, palladium, manganese, titanium, iron, molybdenum, lithium, cobalt and rare earths in its portfolio. For these reasons, investors should at least keep the value in mind.

    Large parts of the economy and, above all, investors still do not seem to have grasped the extent of the transformation that will be necessary in the wake of climate change and the energy transition. Geopolitical tensions could also tend to increase further. Raw materials from reliable sources, in contrast to deposits from China, Russia or African states under the appropriate influence, are likely to gain importance. A few days ago, a consideration made the rounds, according to which Russia could accept gold as payment for oil. Currently, the price for a barrel of oil is almost equivalent to a gram of gold. If Russia were to shift this equation, the price of gold could rise significantly. That is partly because the gold market is smaller and less flexible than the oil market. Regardless of Russia's actions, Globex Mining's stock remains interesting. Anyone with so many commodities in the ground today valued at only CAD 36.2 million is definitely worth a look.

    Uniper: Here, the state rules

    Investors who like to take short-term positions should keep the Uniper share in mind. At the start of the week, the shareholders of the energy trader will decide on the state's entry. Ultimately, the government is to hold a whopping 98.5% of the crisis-ridden company. A capital increase of EUR 8 billion at EUR 1.70 per share is planned. The EU Commission only recently approved the acquisition. Even if the federal government will soon be calling the shots at Uniper, which still supplies around 100 municipal utilities, the stock could still be attractive for short-term speculation - but probably more on the short side. Especially if new capital injections are imminent, the share could go down further.

    In the current market phase, it is still essential for investors, firstly, not to put all their eggs in one basket and, secondly, to consider unforeseen events. Securities such as flatexDegiro or Uniper are not particularly suitable for this purpose: They have already experienced strong price movements, and the associated companies are under operational pressure. The situation is different with Globex Mining. The investment company for raw material projects in North America offers a lot of deep value but is unfortunately also not very transparent, as is the case with many comparable companies. However, given the low double-digit valuation, the stock is worth considering. Just one exit from more than 200 projects could be a liberating blow for the stock.

    Freyr Battery, Auxico Resources, Plug Power - Rare earth battery boom in e-Mobility

    One of Norway's largest financial services companies is increasing its equity stake in Plug Power, the US hydrogen fuel cell company. The reason: Nikola Motors has selected the Company to upgrade its new e-mobility fleet with clean fuel cells. Freyr Battery also has similar ambitions. Here, Impact Clean Power Technology, the Polish manufacturer of battery systems for heavy-duty vehicles, has signed an agreement with Freyr to purchase clean batteries. Both big deals have one thing in common: demand for rare earths and valuable metals to make green technologies a reality. That is where Auxico Resources, a mineral exploration company focused on Africa, comes in.

    Besides the raging war in Ukraine, the discussion about the energy industry of the future accompanies us daily. It has already been decided that renewable energies such as wind power and photovoltaics will be the way forward. Likewise, the move away from the internal combustion engine to battery-powered electric motors is in the bag. But the implementation problems will be with us over the next few years. Where will producers get the raw materials that are already in short supply? Another critical issue is energy storage. Here, too, there is an increasing demand for a raw material that is currently produced primarily in Russia and China.
