Kodiak Copper, BASF, Varta - Copper study ignored
The International Copper Study Group (ICSG) sees a slight oversupply of the copper market in 2021 and 2022. The main reason for this is said to be dwindling Chinese demand. The demand is decreasing because China is expanding mine production and copper refining by about 3% each. After the study's publication, the price per ton of copper rose again to over USD 10,000. Possibly driven by the news from Chile, which produced 2.2% less copper than last year. Similar news can be heard from other major copper producing countries such as Peru. Copper concentrate supply is low at the moment. We, therefore, look at one copper explorer, one copper producer and one consumer.Read

Steinhoff International, Aspermont, BASF - Things are moving mightily!
The power of the media as opinion leaders has once again been demonstrated during the Corona Crisis. But the media have changed in recent years. Whereas it used to be enough to announce a "news" item in the daily print edition, nowadays, news outlets are firing from all guns. On social networks like Twitter, YouTube or Facebook, the press is omnipresent and, whether we like it or not, fires us with the most important information throughout the day. The multi-channel strategy will open up new sources of revenue, recently unknown, which will significantly increase the value of companies.Read

BASF, Saturn Oil & Gas, K+S: Three stocks for a yield kick
Investors who want to add a few yield drivers to their portfolio have several options. In addition to solid blue chips, which offer little share price excitement but steady dividends, investors can also focus on growth stocks and small caps. Although there are always those who categorically rule out growth stocks for cautious investors, this is not entirely true. Those who control risk via position size can also invest speculatively without having to abandon their fundamental strategy.Read

BP, Saturn Oil + Gas, BASF - Fuel for the portfolio: lots of good news!
Opinions on the markets about where the oil price will stand in the short, medium and long term are becoming increasingly diverse. But there is also a lot happening strategically and operationally, which is easily lost in the jumble of information. Last week, British oil giant BP reported that it would reach its planned net debt target much earlier - as early as the first quarter. The highlight: The Group announced that it would again be buying back a large number of shares when it reached its target. How does Moody's rating change fit into the picture with an upgrade for the short-term and a downgrade for the long-term outlook? Below, we will take a closer look at the BP share, BASF's oil and gas shareholding developments and Wintershall Dea and its stock market plans. Also exciting is the opportunity presented by emerging Canadian oil and gas producer Saturn, which could enter a new dimension with a takeover.Read

BASF, Bayer, Enapter: From top dogs to young guns
When it comes to chemical products or other engineering services, the Germans are not easily outdone. Although emerging companies worldwide are sometimes hyped on the stock market, in practice, the motto is often still: Germany first! But it's not always dull corporations like BASF or Bayer that cause a sensation - there are now also innovative players from Germany, like Enapter in the hydrogen sector.Read

BASF, Lufthansa, Triumph Gold - Watch out for the end of the year!
After months of tough negotiations, the UK and the EU are on the verge of a historic trade deal. However, we still face some hurdles in the British and European parliaments. No one wants a "no-deal" exit - the UK has already extremely sidelined itself with its tract, and the British pound reflects the skeptical view of the markets. Now that an agreement is within reach, it must be written into law. The British government has announced that it will call MPs to Parliament on 30 Dec for the last heavy day of work to vote on the rulebook. However, according to the UK's chief Brexit negotiator David Frost, MPs are still waiting for the agreement's full text to be published soon. It seems like the MPs will have to hold a blind vote. Our guess: it won't work!Read

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

Almonty, BASF, Bayer: where is it worth starting now?
The start of the week was marked by price losses. In Europe and North America, the leading indices closed in the red. The fear of further effects of the Corona Pandemic has dampened market sentiment. Given that the banknote presses are still running, the breather on the capital markets is again likely to be short-lived. At the time when a vaccine against Covid-19 receives approval, the economy will once again experience an unleashed boom - provided that people can and may want to return to their jobs. Which shares are worthwhile now?Read

Airbus, BASF, Osino Resources - where is the highest return?
Normally, investors are happy about rising share prices, because the stock market is the expression of the future and expected growth in pricing. However, what has been observed since the outbreak of the Corona Pandemic and the measures that have accompanied it has little to do with the old normality. Politicians and economists cannot yet estimate how serious the consequences of the actions around Covid-19 will be. Reports of mass layoffs, bankruptcies and the loss of tax revenues are now part of the daily news. The head of the Bundesbank, Jens Weidmann, recently announced that "things are looking up again", but given that the DAX is currently only around 12% below its all-time high of February 2020, something seems to be out of proportion. "We are currently experiencing the most hated bull market," a banker recently said in a personal conversation.Read
