Defense Metals, Millennial Lithium, Orocobre: Metals are exploding!

  • Metals

The rally in industrial commodities continues - precious metals, on the other hand, are experiencing the biggest daily slump since November. The reasons are simple, although not always obvious: The economic momentum has been underestimated since the middle of last year, analysts are currently gradually moving away from their gloomy forecasts. In particular, mines in the industrial metals sector have seen lower production and exploration following the pandemic outbreak, resulting in closures. Some have closed following price collapses. Currently, things are going the other way: metals, especially copper and lithium, are in strong demand and are soaring, with the producers' shares following suit. The situation is different with precious metals: The need for hedging is decreasing, the propensity to take risks is increasing: precious metals are thus tending to decline. The overall market follows the general battle cry: RISK-ON!

JinkoSolar, Defense Metals, BYD - demand boom leads to catastrophe!

  • Rare Earth Elements

The sales figures for all major electric car manufacturers for the full year 2020 are on the table. 100% more e-cars were sold compared to the same period last year. But even more significant for the future is that vehicles with electric motors have overtaken pure combustion engines in new deliveries. The disruptive replacement is in full swing. However, shortages are emerging in the raw materials needed for the production of batteries and motors.

Lynas Rare Earths, Defense Metals, Energy Fuels - Rare Earths, Uranium & Co.

  • Resources

We encounter rare earths in many ways in everyday life in the form of smartphones, notebooks, LED lights and electric cars. However, the raw material is not earth, but metals. The total of 17 elements, which can additionally be categorized as light and heavy, are also not rare. However, the concentration in which they occur is low, and thus economic extraction is often tricky. China has the largest deposits worldwide. Many countries and industries are interested in discovering and producing rare earths outside of China to become less dependent on the market power of the People's Republic. Should supply and demand diverge too sharply, this could - as in the past - lead to drastic price increases at times and cause share prices to move sharply. We introduce you to three exciting commodity companies.

E.ON, Sartorius, Defense Metals: The scarcer the goods, the higher the price

  • Investments

Only in times of need do you realize what matters, and this is precisely what many businesses and private individuals are experiencing during the lockdown. Industry, too, can quickly find itself in need. The best example was the first few months of the pandemic when global supply chains broke down. Today, Asia is back on the growth path and the cargo ships are fully loaded. But the industry could still be in trouble - for example, if the energy supply collapses. Only recently, it became known that increasing electromobility is causing load peaks in the power grids - for example, after work. Utilities such as E.ON want to take countermeasures and, if need be, implement so-called "peak smoothing." This implementation plan would mean that charging stations would no longer be supplied with electricity when the grid load is high. Anyone still wanting to drive an electric vehicle in the evening would be left out in the cold.

Cisco Systems, BASF, Defense Metals - Everyone is extremely important!

  • Investments

Current advances in technology are changing the industry forever. It is the data worlds that play an increasingly important role in all stages of the production process today due to their availability and analytical capabilities. They make operational activities more transparent and much easier to control. Production data is automatically matched with supply chains and the resulting end products. In this context, digitization has a healing and destructive component. Healing, because the understanding of the process is getting better and better, and all eventualities can be mapped. Destructive, because it has a damaging effect on routine activities that were historically performed by a large number of people and will be increasingly dispensable in the future. In the field of cybersecurity, numerous investigations are conducted, thousands of vulnerabilities are identified, and forensic tools are developed to help protect corporate assets. A new era has begun - complete transparency is the order of the day!

Defense Metals, TUI, Everfuel - these are the new stars!

  • Rare Earth Elements

Electromobility is the future. The sales figures of Tesla and HAN are rising exorbitantly month after month. Currently, orders for the latest models can only be met slowly. The demand for the materials needed to build the new types of batteries is even more serious. There is a threat of severe excess demand and sharply rising prices - from which one can profit on the stock exchange.

E.ON, RWE, Defense Metals: Energy investments - from boring to speculative

  • Energy

The experts of the investment house Clearbridge Investments report that the world could be facing a phase of economic recovery. Decisive factors for this development could be not only the measures of the central banks but also the investments in infrastructure. As the experts emphasize, investments of USD 100 billion would already create about one million jobs. Moreover, every dollar that is invested will pay off several times over in decades and contribute to growth. In contrast to previous years, not only the classic tech stocks should benefit from this growth, but also traditional sectors such as utilities.

Tesla, Defense Metals, HelloFresh: Who makes a 468% return?

  • Rare Earth Elements

When Tesla advertised its electric sports car around 10 years ago and let journalists drive the chic little vehicle around Germany, the Company was a highly speculative affair. The electric pioneers now have various vehicles on offer and are market leaders in their field. But that does not stop the share from making huge profits: The Tesla share climbed by almost 470% within the past twelve months.

BioNTech, Defense Metals, Bayer: Earn money countercyclically

  • Rare Earth Elements

It is complete. After a tense struggle and four days of counting votes, Joe Biden is declared the 46th President of the United States of America. So the Twitter tirades of the defeated Donald Trump should be history. The traces Trump left behind during his four-year reign, however, are likely to keep the government busy for some time to come. Some things, such as the withdrawal from the climate agreement, can be quickly repaired. Biden will carefully weigh up what is "in" and what is "out" on different points of the "America First" program imposed by the predecessor.

Defense Metals, Orocobre, Aurubis – Everyone is a specialist!

  • Metals

Strategic metals are indispensable. They are very rare in the earth's crust and only occur in certain places. For the free economy, there is a procurement problem per se, because, on the one hand, China has the largest reserves, on the other hand, the states intervene in the distribution of the existing quotas. In times of a pandemic, mine closures lead to minor shortages in these metals, but prices are usually negotiated with buyers on a long-term basis. Since the metals usually cannot be procured in alternative ways, it is in everyone's interest to improve the supply situation. But how to procure, if not steal...?
