Almonty Industries, Infineon, VW - This is just the teaser - What is next?

  • Tungsten

From A for antimony to V for vanadium, the European Union's list of critical raw materials now includes 30 materials, including lithium, cobalt, rare earths and tungsten. These raw materials are characterized by low availability and high economic importance. Many key European industries rely on these raw materials, such as the automotive, steel, aerospace, IT, healthcare, or renewable energy sectors. Demand is increasingly being driven by new products and technologies such as electromobility, digitalization and the energy transition. The supply cannot keep up with this. Bottlenecks are emerging, which, among other things, are leading to higher prices for the critical raw materials and posing major challenges for demand-side industries. How can investors position themselves successfully?

Nvidia, AMD, BrainChip, Infineon - Scarcity: These chip stocks are exploding!

  • Technology

The global chip markets remain tight, and a recent PwC study predicts that the global semiconductor market will continue to experience solid growth years. The authors forecast that chip sales will rise to USD 575 billion as early as 2022. Starting from the USD 481 billion in the previous record year 2018, this would correspond to a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 4.6% - not even the pandemic slowed this increase noticeably. In Europe, the automotive industry will become the primary sales market for chip manufacturers. A new growth driver is semiconductors to support artificial intelligence (AI) in autonomous mobility. We present a few industry representatives.

Orocobre, Kodiak Copper, Infineon Technologies - Good for the climate, even better for your portfolio

  • Copper

Heat records and droughts on the one hand and heavy rainfall and flooding on the other - climate change is no longer an abstract threat but a reality. Speculating about the causes is idle. It is more important to tackle the problem. Phasing out coal-fired power generation by 2038? Much too late, experts criticize. And politicians are also slowly realizing that it is already five to twelve. That is why they are really stepping on the gas! We need to say goodbye to the combustion engine, decarbonize industrial production, and expand renewable energy sources. But this requires certain raw materials. Here are three companies with a bright future ahead of them.

Coinbase, Almonty, Infineon - Deals for the Future

  • Tungsten

"Thinking about Tomorrow Today" is a quote that not only corporate leaders need to follow when it comes to establishing new business models to secure the future. It also applies to the energy transition. What use are ever more sharply formulated climate targets by politicians if it is not even certain at the moment where the scarce raw materials for the production of renewable energies such as electromobility, photovoltaics or wind power are to be obtained from over the next few years. The companies that have already thought about tomorrow are therefore becoming the new stars on the stock market.

BMW, NSJ Gold, Infineon - Enormous demand

  • Gold

In recent months, the shortage of semiconductors has been a major headache for the manufacturing sector, especially for carmakers. Production losses and short-time work were the result of the global shortage. There seems to be no improvement in sight. Leading chip manufacturer Intel expects the chip shortage to worsen in the coming months and does not expect the situation to ease for at least two years. There is a similar shortage of raw materials for the energy transition. Position yourself in good time.

Infineon, Desert Gold, BASF - Prepared for the future

  • Gold

The energy turnaround and the achievement of climate neutrality are back in the news as the Corona pandemic fades. Politicians around the world are supporting with billions in subsidies. But the industry is under pressure. Climate neutrality requires the introduction of new production technologies in many sectors, and in areas such as basic materials, the conversion of entire production lines. On the other hand, competitiveness should not suffer in this historic transformation.

Nordex, Triumph Gold, Infineon - Just keep calm

  • Gold

"First, things turn out differently, and second, things turn out differently than you expect." This saying by German poet and caricaturist Wilhelm Busch applies more than ever to the capital markets right now. Why is the Bitcoin falling, why is TUI not rising despite the travel restrictions easing, and why is the gold price not taking advantage of the fundamentally good conditions to attack the high of August last year? The answer is again found in a quote from the Chinese philosopher Confucius: "There is strength in calm."

Infineon, Nvidia, BMW, Defense Metals - Exploding commodity prices ahead!

  • Commodities

The explosion in commodity prices is foreseeable. Due to the fatal misjudgment of the governments on how the COVID pandemic will develop, the economies are currently in a supply shock. The months-long lockdowns have broken off some supply chains, and the breakdown in the Suez Canal has further aggravated the situation. Ever Given's wrecked ship is still stuck in the Egyptian Bitter Lake with 20,000 containers on board. Whether in cell phones, electric vehicles, non-fossil power generation and storage, or modern server farms - industrial metals are needed everywhere. For special applications, we even need rare earths, which makes it highly political.

Infineon, Defense Metals, Aixtron - It is getting tight!

  • RareEarths

Supply bottlenecks in various industries, e.g. wood, metals, semiconductors or chips (see Infineon and Aixtron in this article), are causing prices to skyrocket. Whether only a short-term phenomenon, it remains to be seen. One area that is heading for ever-increasing demand with manageable supply is "rare earths." Particularly for producers or prospective producers or exploration companies, such as Defense Metals, this should pay off in the medium term.

Chips sold out: Nvidia, Infineon, AMD, Defense Metals - E-mobility empties the shelves!

  • Investments

The high-tech industry is currently not coming to rest. The great excitement in the industry is enormous, resulting in delivery bottlenecks for important control and sensor chips, especially for the automotive industry. In addition to delayed deliveries, there are also general resource bottlenecks in the raw materials sector. Often, 50% higher immediate delivery prices for individual components have to be included in the calculation. The chip shortage is a side effect of the Corona Crisis. Due to home offices and misjudgments of the limited manufacturing capacities, supply bottlenecks for semiconductors and components have been occurring since 2020. We take a look at an industry that has had a hard time since the trade war between the USA and China.
