Defense Metals Shell Lukoil - Commodity investments without contact debt
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...Read

Gazprom, Sberbank, Defense Metals, Airbus: Buy when the cannons thunder!
The Ukraine crisis, or rather the Russia crisis, pulls its circles. The Putin case escalates more and more because the Russian president recognizes the eastern Ukrainian "separatist areas" of Donetsk and Luhansk as autonomous regions. A familiar tactics game of the Kremlin and at the same time an affront to the West. The EU and the US, as well as Great Britain and other states, are responding with sanctions. These hit several sectors - including banks and companies as well as Russian elites and families who support Putin's power apparatus. So far, trading in Russian stocks has not been sanctioned, creating low entry prices. We give a few important tips away from politics!Read

ThyssenKrupp, Defense Metals, Mercedes-Benz Group - Is war coming now?
The situation around Ukraine is coming to a head. Last Friday, US citizens were called upon to leave Ukraine immediately. US intelligence services suspect that Russia's invasion could be imminent as early as next Wednesday. Stock markets fell in response. But will Russia really start a war? That remains to be seen, but it is clear that war is also an economic engine, despite the suffering it causes. The defense industry needs rare earths, as does the steel and automotive industries. We highlight three companies around rare earths.Read

Varta, Defense Metals, BYD: What does Tesla need more urgently?
The future of mobility is electric. But which companies will ultimately come out on top? Currently, battery manufacturers and suppliers of preliminary products are developing innovative solutions. At the same time, supposed market experts preach that China is dominant in electromobility anyway. So how should we invest? We take a closer look at three stocks for you.Read

Defense Metals, BYD, Daimler - New development phase reached!
With the amendment of the Climate Protection Act, the German government has tightened climate protection targets and is aiming for greenhouse gas neutrality by 2045. Emissions are to be reduced by 65% compared to 1990 as early as the beginning of the next decade. One key to putting this into practice is the electrification of transport. Around 14% of newly registered vehicles had an all-electric drive in 2021. That means the proportion of e-cars on German roads almost doubled compared with the previous year. As a result, demand for the required raw materials is rising ever more markedly. Surpluses in demand can already be seen.Read

BYD, Defense Metals, Tesla - The long-term beneficiaries of climate change
The post-pandemic global economic recovery and rising investment in more climate-friendly energy infrastructure are driving higher commodity prices amid supply chain disruptions. Shortages of industrial metals, which are urgently needed for climate change, are likely to materialize further in the coming years. This will be significantly exacerbated by the swelling trade conflict between the USA and China. There is a threat of massive bottlenecks in production and sharply rising prices for the respective materials.Read

BYD, Defense Metals, Nordex: Opportunities in a weak environment
New technology requires new raw materials. The evolution of modern batteries for e-mobility alone shows how different the raw material requirements are depending on the technology used. First, cobalt was the battery metal; now, tungsten and silicon are increasingly important. Rare earths have also always been in demand for future technologies. These are used in displays and many other applications and have long since achieved the status of critical metals. We present three companies that are active in the field of rare earths.Read

Standard Lithium, Defense Metals, Nordex - The demand for metals goes through the roof!
A possible explosion in raw material prices was already indicated in 2019. Due to low selling prices, some mining companies even reduced their mining output or stopped their exploration activities. Then came the pandemic, which put further pressure on both production and logistics, and many operations had to close for longer than expected due to adjustments in sanitation infrastructure. There is now also the supply chain problem in this already tight supply situation. Presumably, things will not get any easier in 2022 under these conditions. Which companies are making a name for themselves in this environment?Read

NIO, Defense Metals, BASF - Trade war with China
Didi Global's delisting on the New York Stock Exchange after less than six months of membership shows, on the one hand, the tremendous regulatory fury of the Chinese government, but on the other hand also the tensions between the USA and China. This trade war has been going on since 2018, and even the change in the US presidency has not brought any relief. At least both sides exchanged views in mid-November and do not want a cold war. China has also warned Europe against too much independence. However, since the Corona Crisis, it has become clear how dependent many countries are on China. A rethink is discernible, also because high container costs mean that imports are no longer profitable in some cases. Today we look at three companies that are at least indirectly affected by the trade dispute.Read

Defense Metals, Aixtron, TUI - Winners or losers?
Supply chain problems have hit many industries hard in the wake of the Corona pandemic. Essential parts and components were missing, and as a result, production lines at automotive manufacturers, among others, came to a standstill. In addition, raw materials and components such as chips have become much more expensive. Now, in the wake of the new wave of the pandemic, there are signs that the situation will worsen. Who are the winners, and who are the losers?Read
