Der Spiegel, Die Welt, Münchner Merkur - in the past week alone, many media reported on the role of rare earths in the energy transition. The conclusion everywhere: rare earths are not rare but urgently needed. Mining sites, therefore, urgently need to be developed - ideally in a sustainable and environmentally friendly way. We focus on three companies in urgent need of rare earths or considered up-and-coming producers.Read

In the hunt for the precious raw materials needed for the energy transition, carmaker Volkswagen now has Canada on its radar. There, the Company wants to extract the lithium it so urgently needs for electric batteries. The Company would do well to reorganize its supply chains, and the EU is pushing for a CO2-friendly transformation of the automotive industry. The Company Altech Advanced Materials promises a higher performance of electric batteries. Its innovative technology allows electric batteries to perform better, which is ideal for the energy turnaround demanded by politicians. Chemical giant BASF is experiencing that politics cannot always be to the advantage of its own company. Once again, it is the EU that wants to ban a product...Read

Almonty Industries, ThyssenKrupp, Volkswagen - Tungsten: The raw material for high-tech applications!
Tungsten is a rare and valuable metal with a high melting point, hardness, corrosion resistance and good electrical and thermal conductivity. It is widely used in industry, national defence and high-tech applications. An important use of tungsten is in alloys, especially steel, where it increases the melting point, hardness and wear resistance. Now applications could be expanded even further. Researchers have developed a cathode material made from a molybdenum tungsten niobate alloy that can be used to charge electric cars in minutes.Read

First Hydrogen Corp., Volkswagen, Mercedes-Benz Group - Hydrogen or electric drive, who will win the race in Automotive?
Europe is gearing up for a zero-emission sweeping blow. Volkswagen and the Mercedes-Benz Group, two globally producing automotive groups, are launching the electric initiative to say goodbye to the combustion engine quickly.

E-mobiles still account for a single-digit percentage of all vehicles worldwide, but the growth trends speak a clear language: the world will electrify in mobility! Anyone following the price of copper should note one important point - copper is an important industrial metal that is not only used in cars. The biggest consumers are the construction and infrastructure industries. And these sectors are suffering from extreme inflation, high interest rates and the resulting economic decline in demand. For the copper price, of course, this also means no exuberant scarcity at present, and thus falling prices from around USD 5.00 to currently around USD 3.80 per pound. So, as with all commodities, timing in the economic cycle is the key determinant of investment success. Which stocks are in focus now?Read

Desert Gold Ventures, Amazon, Volkswagen - Commodities in hot demand, while big tech and Automotive in a nosedive
The new stock market year is starting with a strong pole position for commodities and companies like Desert Gold Ventures, which is looking for gold in Mali. Mali is the third-largest gold-producing country in the world. Desert Gold Ventures' 'SMSZ Project' already surrounds 6 active gold mines, and drilling for 2023 is secured. Things remain shaky for big tech companies like Amazon and automotive like Volkswagen. Can the past Christmas sales bring Amazon's once largest pillar back into the black? Will the Wolfsburg-based company recapture its market power through restructuring in procurement?Read

As we approach the end of the year, it is difficult to separate the real economic opportunities from the current war and crisis scenarios. The forecasting institutes are also poking around in the fog with their statements for 2023, with a still conciliatory economic development at the zero line being defined subject to falling interest rates and declining inflation. Under the sword of Damocles of a possible gas crisis starting in March, however, all predictions turn negative because Germany as an industrial location is already struggling considerably with the energy and electricity price increases. So how do you select a top performer for the portfolio?Read

Is the e-mobility gold rush coming to an end? Volkswagen, BYD, Alerio Gold, Deutsche Bank - What is going on with Tesla?
Elon Musk had a calculated fortune of around USD 280 billion at the peak of the Tesla share. After the crash of the miracle share and the purchase of Twitter, he is now said to own around USD 150 billion less. According to calculations by the analysis firm Factset, Musk still holds around 14% of the shares in electric car manufacturer Tesla. Here alone, there is a gaping loss of over USD 100 billion. New at the world's top for the first time is a Frenchman: Bernard Arnault, the 73-year-old CEO and co-owner of the luxury group LVMH. According to the US magazine Forbes, he has a total fortune of USD 186 billion - and thus passes Musk and Buffet. Has the "climate wonder weapon" electromobility already seen its horizon?Read
