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.

    Panic at AIXTRON and NEL! Is Kraken Energy an AI beneficiary?

    • renewableenergies
    • AI

    AIXTRON shares lost more than 5% yesterday. In addition to the price slide on the NASDAQ, a negative analyst comment added to the negative sentiment. Both the rating and target price of the AIXTRON share were significantly reduced. The same applies to Nel. The hydrogen specialist's recovery attempt was mercilessly stifled, and the share lost over 15%. The lack of incoming orders, in particular, is making analysts nervous. In contrast, Kraken Energy could soon be seen as an AI beneficiary. After all, Elon Musk is not the only one warning of an energy crisis and calling for the expansion of nuclear energy. Voices are getting louder that the computing power required for artificial intelligence will cause energy consumption to explode. In order to prevent a blackout, many countries are turning to nuclear power.

    Out of defense, into gold!? Renk, Barrick Gold, Desert Gold

    • Mining

    • armaments

    On Tuesday, German defense stocks were shaken briefly and sharply. In a flash crash, Renk, Rheinmetall and Hensoldt fell by more than 10%. This indicates that defense stocks have run hot. The future prospects for the companies are undeniably positive, but a consolidation is in order. Gold is an entirely different story. The price of the precious metal is at record levels, but the shares of gold producers are still a long way from their 2020 highs. This applies to the heavyweights like Barrick Gold and Endeavour Mining, but even more so to the explorers. One of the promising explorers is Desert Gold. The Company operates in an attractive region, is on the verge of becoming a Tier 1 mine producer, and is a takeover candidate. Barrick Gold is one of many companies that could make a move on Desert Gold.

    Palantir, Globex Mining, Bayer - The trend is pointing upwards

    • Software

    After a successful first quarter of 2024, the DAX and Dow Jones took a well-deserved breather last week. In contrast, the precious metal markets for gold and silver continued their upward trend. Gold also reached new absolute highs of USD 2,354 per ounce. While gold producers such as Barrick Gold and Newmont remained in hibernation, they have been following the rising base price for several weeks now. There is currently also an opportunity for smaller commodity stocks to participate disproportionately in the upward trend.
