Furious debt mania, a thorough portfolio check is necessary! Allianz, Blackrock Silver, Deutsche Bank and Commerzbank in focus!
From one high to the next - it is not just equities that are booming in Europe, the US and China; it is mainly debt. First Corona, then Ukraine, now Israel - there is no end to the flood of borrowing. Armaments are now being financed on credit, while the accompanying recession is draining the coffers. Real estate is becoming a hot topic: New builds are hardly affordable for families, and old buildings are swallowing up thousands of euros in green-tinted renovation costs. The Federal Constitutional Court has now put a retroactive stop to the creative spending culture in Berlin, and a new budget plan is necessary. Keeping a clear head as an investor in this environment is challenging. We look at the opportunities in the financial sector, but perhaps precious metals will also be the anchor that saves the day.Read

Climate change is increasingly threatening our lives, with few areas worldwide considered safe. Sea levels are rising, and polar ice is melting. Many regions are experiencing severe storms and increased rainfall, while others face growing risks of heatwaves and droughts. Since the Paris Climate Agreement at the latest, countries have been stepping up their efforts to limit global warming to 1.5 degrees Celsius. This has created a market that experts predict will increase eightfold by the end of the decade.Read

The gold price is currently experiencing a high phase triggered by the conflict in the Middle East. In the last four weeks, the price has risen by 6%. This development is not only piquing the interest of investors but is also boosting companies like Desert Gold Ventures, which is piloting an ambitious gold project in West Africa. Their flagship project, the Senegal Mali Shear Zone (SMSZ), is at the heart of this. With escalations in international cities rising, people prefer to stay home and watch Netflix. The stock shot up 12%. And what do you do if your car catches fire, as happened yesterday in Hamburg's Elbe Tunnel? It is good to have insurance with Allianz...Read

Saturn Oil + Gas, Siemens Energy, Allianz: Perennial favorites in the energy sector and insurance - Which stocks are in for big price jumps?
Classic sectors such as energy and insurance are currently attracting the attention of investors. The Allianz Group, as an insurance company, is going through a tough restructuring process and has appointed a new CFO. This time, a woman is to do the extensive cleaning. Shareholder confidence is the currency for valuable business; if it falters, as in the case of Siemens Energy, the wind energy company faces a strong headwind due to its opaque external communication. Clear communication, even in the face of setbacks, gets shareholders on board. In the energy sector, Warren Buffett recently increased his stake in an oil company. A promising candidate in this sector is Saturn Oil & Gas. The Company has the potential to achieve a share price of EUR 3.90 compared to the current EUR 1.88. Investors can learn about the management team's approach in this article.Read

Defence Therapeutics, Schott Pharma, Allianz Group: Focus on Innovation, Growth and Portfolio Optimization
According to a recent study, biotech company Defence Therapeutics achieves twice the immune response of conventional mRNA therapies with its Accum® mRNA technology. That translates to fewer side effects and a more effective treatment. According to Precedence Research, the market size for mRNA therapeutics is projected to reach approximately USD 137.59 billion by 2032. It is expected to grow at a CAGR of 13.2% from 2023 to 2032. In order to inject these active ingredients, precision-fit medical vials are required, and Schott Pharma is ensuring this with their IPO launched on the German stock exchange this week, which could bring a valuation of around EUR 4 billion. The Allianz Group, on the other hand, is focusing on consolidation, selling its business in the Middle East and thus flushing around EUR 210 million cash into its coffers.Read

To many market observers, China was considered the true powerhouse of financial markets. Even when US growth was reaching its limits due to crises, the Chinese continued scoring points with growth rates well above the 5% mark. But the situation has changed. China is increasingly becoming a problem case. The Chinese real estate market is in a predicament. The situation surrounding project developer Country Garden could, much like in the case with Evergrande before, make waves internationally and put German financial institutions in a difficult situation.Read

Impending financial crisis 3.0 boosts gold: Desert Gold Ventures, Deutsche Bank, Allianz - This is where the music plays!
And another double interest rate hike. First the FED, now the ECB followed suit last week, as expected. Monetary policy is trying a dangerous balancing act, as the US banking sector is tottering, and at the same time, inflation rates remain high. Now lavish wage settlements are added to the mix, and the second-round effects are on. The aggressive interest rate hikes and the collapsing real estate market have been among the factors causing stress in the banking sector. Profiteers are few and far between at the moment, but precious metals are back on the buy list. What about the prominence of the German financial industry?Read

Well, who would have thought: after 9 months of correction mode, the stock market is already returning to normal mode this year. The indicator for leaving the panic mode is the VDAX, i.e. the measured fluctuation range of the index in 12 months. Last week, it reached levels of 22 to 23 again, after peaking at 33 in September. By comparison, in the absolute panic phase at the start of the war, the volatility gauge was 48.6%. The mood has eased, so welcome to the year-end rally. Where are the best opportunities for investors?Read

The energy crisis in Europe is causing one sector in particular to boom: cybersecurity. The attack on Nordex in April or the current threat to the Ukrainian nuclear power plant in Zaporizhzhya illustrates the fragility of our energy supply. Surveillance technology from space helps entire countries and trade routes to increase their own security. Kleos Space is a technology pioneer in this. The Company provides global intelligence and geolocation Data-as-a-Service through appropriate satellite technology. The sector is also important for insurance companies such as Allianz.Read
