Alarm bells ringing: Shares of Nel ASA, K+S and Almonty Industries take off

  • Tungsten
  • Hydrogen

There is a mood of alarm in German politics and business these days. The reason - prices for critical raw materials are going through the roof, and the security of supply is in question. BMW, Daimler, and Volkswagen have to shut down plants due to a shortage of nickel. And the stress factor is also high in medium-sized companies. Take tungsten, for example. "The sources are drying up at the moment, which is causing problems in procurement," says Johannes Schmidt in an interview with the FAZ. He is chairman of the board of the medium-sized holding Company Indus and thus has an overview of the situation in various industries. Although China is the largest tungsten producer, German companies have often ordered from Russia. On the other hand, commodity companies such as Almonty Industries, K+S and Nel are profiting. Their shares are taking off.

K+S, Ximen Mining, BP - The trend continues

  • Commodities
  • Oil

The commodity markets are bullish across the board. Sanctions, supply bottlenecks, and demand that is increasingly exceeding supply can be observed in many areas. Precious metals play a unique role as a crisis currency. What is negative for consumers and demanders is a profit booster for commodity producers - rising prices. These companies should be among the beneficiaries. Who will be ahead at the end of the year?

Rheinmetall, Altech Advanced Materials, K+S - Seizing the momentum

  • Electromobility
  • Lithium

Since the outbreak of the Ukraine conflict about three weeks ago and the announcement of sanctions against Russian goods and companies, the winners and losers on the stock market have clearly emerged. While defense companies were not an investment object for fund managers or private investors from an ethical point of view in the recent past, there is now a strong investment in companies such as Rheinmetall, Hensoldt & Co. At the same time, no defense contracts have yet been awarded by the German government, nor is it clear whether the necessary raw materials will be available. Therefore, it would come as little surprise if the currently inflated valuations were to implode soon.

K+S, MAS Gold, Hensoldt - Shares around fertilizers, gold and armaments on the upswing

  • Gold
  • armaments

Even in times of crisis, there are always winners. In the case of the Ukraine crisis, these are the fertilizer producers due to the lack of wheat from Russia and Ukraine. With their fertilizers, wheat producers are trying to at least partially meet the excess demand. Gold managed to break out on the upside after the war began and is still considered a safe haven. Last but not least, of course, the defense industry is benefiting from the war drive. Today, we take a look at one company from each sector.

Nordex, K+S, Defense Metals: Shares for the "inflationary shock"?

  • RareEarths
  • Inflation

Russia's war in Ukraine is causing massive dislocations in the commodity markets. Not only for oil and gas but also for metals and agricultural commodities. The consequences are clear: Everything is getting more expensive. At the same time, resources outside Russia and China are becoming strategically more important. That speaks in favor of the German potash producer K+S. However, the share has already done very well, with analysts issuing warnings. The situation is different for Defense Metals. The Canadian rare earth explorer is described as an "undiscovered pearl" with takeover fantasy. In the meantime, renewable energy must also be called a commodity. Nordex benefits from this and receives tailwinds from analysts. But, there are also problems at the wind turbine manufacturer, and these need to be solved.

K+S, Edison Lithium, BASF - Explosives for the stock markets

  • Lithium

Inflation is rising sharply, and there is uncertainty due to the increasing geopolitical tensions with sanctions, which are supposed to hit Russia in particular but are having a one-to-one impact on our wallets. For example, energy prices are rising enormously, with gasoline increasing by more than 50 cents at the pump within a few days. The switch from fossil fuels to renewable energy sources will take time, but it will almost certainly not be cheaper. The price of lithium alone, an elementary metal for electric mobility, has quadrupled since the summer of last year. The primary beneficiaries of the runaway inflation are undoubtedly the producers of the in-demand raw materials.

Nordex, K+S, Desert Gold: Commodities out of control

  • Gold
  • Commodities

While the broad stock market suffers from Russia's war of aggression in Ukraine, commodities are becoming increasingly expensive. On Tuesday, the price of nickel had doubled, and the London Metal Exchange even suspended trading. Prices are also going through the roof for virtually all other commodities such as oil, gold, gas and wheat. Accordingly, shares from these sectors are currently in demand. Such as the potash producer K+S because large competitors from Russia and Belarus are currently cut off from the world market. Analysts have recently been cautious. Desert Gold is benefiting from the high gold price. In addition, the Canadian explorer has published promising resource estimates. Driven by the political announcements to replace fossil fuels even faster with renewable energies, Nordex was one of the past week's winners. Now, however, the Company has published sobering figures. But hope remains.

K+S, Phoenix Copper, Barrick Gold - Commodities as portfolio boosters

  • Copper
  • Gold

Prices for raw materials went through the roof last year. On the one hand, the global economy recovered faster than expected. On the other hand, demand for copper increased significantly, especially due to the turnaround in the automotive industry. Now, raw materials are becoming scarce again, as Russia is partially eliminated as an exporter of raw materials. It means that supply is lagging behind demand and resulting in rising prices. Especially for oil, gas and wheat, supply is expected to tighten significantly. Today we present three exciting commodity companies that could benefit from the crisis.

K+S, Globex Mining, Barrick Gold - On the road to success

  • commodities

The stock markets will certainly remain nervous for some time to come given the war in Ukraine and Putin's threatening nuclear gestures. But where there is uncertainty and risks, there are also opportunities. The big picture favors commodity investments: precious metals as a crisis currency, battery metals with high demand due to the energy transition, and agricultural commodities. We take a look at shares that offer good opportunities.

Bayer, Desert Gold, K+S - Market facing redistribution

  • Gold

Since Russia invaded Ukraine last week, the world has literally been turned upside down. There is bewilderment at the violence of the Russian president. Western nations are responding with sanctions against Russia, such as excluding Russian banks from the SWIFT system. In addition, the plan is to extend sanctions to other companies in various industries. Companies that are not affected benefit from this and gain market share. For example, the fertilizer industry is facing a redistribution of market conditions in favor of German suppliers.
