Booster for the BioNTech share: BASF and Defense Metals with momentum?

  • RareEarths
  • Biotechnology

The swing market continues to keep investors on their toes. On Tuesday, encouraging economic data and the prospect of an imminent end to the lockdowns in China ensured a good mood and significantly rising prices. The speech by Fed Chairman Powell could not change this. Only one day later, the euphoria has already faded, and the statements of the central bank chief are being interpreted negatively. Powell had reiterated the Fed's determination to fight inflation. Therefore, operational impulses are needed for shares to rise again. BioNTech's stock got a small boost from the FDA's approval of its Corona vaccine as a booster shot for ages 5-11. But analysts are waiting for more. At Defense Metals, investors hope for more from today's CEO presentation after solid drilling results. At BASF, several analysts are reducing price targets at once and see possible additional costs in the billions.

Defense Metals, ThyssenKrupp, Allkem - Raw materials for armaments

  • RareEarths
  • armaments

Times of war have their own dynamics. Many sectors of the economy suffer from the uncertainties it brings. However, one sector can confidently be called a war winner because, without defense equipment, there is no war. The supplier industries are also among the profiteers, provided demand does not collapse elsewhere to a greater extent. In addition, the defense industry is increasingly being classified as sustainable, which opens up access to previously closed ESG portfolios.

Rheinmetall, Defense Metals, MP Materials - Until the next bubble bursts

  • RareEarths
  • armaments

In every crisis there are winners and losers. Due to the numerous lockdowns of the past two years, shares such as Netflix, Delivery Hero and Peloton, in addition to vaccine manufacturers such as BioNTech and Moderna, are the winners. However, since Russia invaded Ukraine, defense shares, which were recently classified as "socially harmful", have become the new stars in the stock market sky. The call for rearmament by several countries is creating enormous valuation bubbles that are likely to burst again in the near future.

Rheinmetall, thyssenkrupp, Defense Metals: The scarce metals matter!

  • RareEarths
  • armaments

Some companies have been in the international spotlight since the outbreak of the Ukraine crisis. This is primarily because they are seen as having an important role in resolving and ending the armed conflict. It is generally assumed that the Ukrainian people can only free themselves from Russia's grip with international support. Thus, it is perfectly legitimate to make investments where no need has been seen in recent years. The peace dividend that has been withheld for years is likely now coming back into circulation - the Ministry of Defense is now rearming after years of consolidation! Who can profit from these orders?

Regionalization as an investment idea: BYD, Defense Metals, Rheinmetall

  • RareEarths
  • armaments

The peace dividend has been depleted. For years, Europe imagined itself in a world without wars. Interdependence and joint trade were supposed to create a world order that would provide stability and balance. But for the past fifteen years or so, this concept has not been running smoothly. First, Putin set foot in Georgia, and later, he annexed Crimea. Since February, it has been clear even to the German government that peace and security will have to be worked hard for again. At the same time, as climate change necessitates action, the world is facing change. We highlight three stocks that could benefit.

BASF, Defense Metals, Rheinmetall - Shares that depend on rare earths

  • RareEarths
  • armaments

The Ukraine crisis has shown us how dependent we are on Russian energy imports. The German government now wants to step on the gas pedal even more for renewable energies. The problem is that new technologies such as electric vehicles or wind turbines almost always require rare earths. But rare earths are not only needed there; the defense industry needs these raw materials to optimize steel or as magnets in a wide variety of weapons technologies. But rare earths are also present in the household, in smartphones, notebooks and many other technological devices. Today we take a look at three companies around rare earths.

Defense Metals, Hensoldt, Rheinmetall - Special boom for the defense industry

  • RareEarths
  • armaments

The war in Ukraine is giving the defense industry more weight. But what is the focus? Defense, deterrence, or war of aggression? The shares of industry representatives have recently benefited significantly from higher defense budgets and orders. What one thinks of this from a moral point of view is another matter. On a more sober note, stronger demand and earnings growth lay the groundwork for higher share prices.

Nordex, K+S, Defense Metals: Shares for the "inflationary shock"?

  • RareEarths
  • Inflation

Russia's war in Ukraine is causing massive dislocations in the commodity markets. Not only for oil and gas but also for metals and agricultural commodities. The consequences are clear: Everything is getting more expensive. At the same time, resources outside Russia and China are becoming strategically more important. That speaks in favor of the German potash producer K+S. However, the share has already done very well, with analysts issuing warnings. The situation is different for Defense Metals. The Canadian rare earth explorer is described as an "undiscovered pearl" with takeover fantasy. In the meantime, renewable energy must also be called a commodity. Nordex benefits from this and receives tailwinds from analysts. But, there are also problems at the wind turbine manufacturer, and these need to be solved.

Defense Metals, Gazprom, ThyssenKrupp - Winners and losers

  • Defense
  • RareEarths
  • Military
  • Oil
  • Gas
  • Steel

A brave Ukrainian woman hunts down a Russian drone - with a well-aimed throw through a jar of pickled tomatoes. For defense, every means is justified. But there is also a more strategic way to invest in companies that supply raw materials for military technology - and without conflict for investors with a sense of justice. The German economy, on the other hand, could be in for a real shock if Gazprom makes good on its threats and shuts down Nord Stream 1 as a result of the sanctions. Germany is one of the biggest buyers of Russian gas. ThyssenKrupp is also benefiting from the current situation. It becomes quite clear what the Group is really gaining from right now.

Defense Metals Shell Lukoil - Commodity investments without contact debt

  • RareEarths

Until now, China seemed to be a top dog among rare earths. But its position in the Russia-Ukraine conflict is unclear. Therefore, it seems all the more valuable to discover countries that also produce rare earths, such as Canada. These days, people are looking very closely at who is on which side. This week, for example, Shell cut ties with Gazprom. But at the Russian energy giant Lukoil, one of them does not want to leave his post - and thus immediately endangers his entire country...
