K+S, Theta Gold Mines, Varta - Explosion in construction materials and raw materials!

  • Commodities

The price rally in essential commodities continues. An acute shortage of building materials has caused some sharp price increases on construction sites. As reported by the Federal Statistical Office, in May 2021, solid structural timber increased in price by 83.3% year-on-year, roof battens by 45.7% and structural timber by 38.4%. The increased prices of wood and steel and industrial metal are driving up construction costs: reinforcing steel in bars was 44.3% more expensive in May 2021, and reinforcing steel mesh cost 30.4% more than a year ago. The main reasons for the rising lumber and steel prices are likely to be rising demand at home and abroad during the Corona pandemic and problems in the supply of raw materials. By comparison, the producer price index of industrial products rose 7.2% over the same period - the most significant monthly increase in 25 years. Who are the beneficiaries of the shortage rally?

Almonty Industries, K+S, Airbus - Rising demand will be reflected in share price increases!

  • Tungsten

The metal tungsten has special properties that make it unique as a material. The metal is highly resistant to corrosion, as heavy as gold and, as tungsten carbide, as hard as diamond. In addition, at 3,422 degrees Celsius, it has the highest melting point of all metals. However, processing it is expensive and time-consuming. At the moment, researchers in Karlsruhe are working on processing tungsten using 3D printing methods. Due to its unique properties, tungsten plays a vital role in high-temperature applications in energy and lighting technology and space travel and medical technology. How can investors profit from the rising demand? We will show you.

First Majestic Silver, NewPeak Metals, K+S - Soaring commodity prices

  • Commodities

Commodity prices continue to soar. If we compare the first quarter of 2021 with 2020, we can assume an average price increase of 36.7%. As the raw materials market is currently unable to respond quickly enough to the high demand in many countries, prices are rising. An end to this spiral is currently not foreseeable, as more and more countries are slowly getting to grips with the Corona pandemic. Thus the demand for raw materials will continue to grow. We have picked out three exciting companies from the commodities sector today.

White Metal Resources, BASF, K+S: How to react to 4% inflation

  • Commodities

As reported by Handelsblatt, the German Bundesbank expects an inflation rate of up to 4% by year-end. Within the eurozone, for which the central bank ECB is responsible, it could be well over 2%. This mixed situation is particularly tricky for Germans. While inflation in Germany is already very high, the lower price momentum within the eurozone could ensure that the ECB leaves its money floodgates open for even longer. In the long term, this could encourage inflation to overshoot. How can investors react to this? We present three stocks.

Gazprom, K+S, Blackrock Silver: Watch out for the turnaround - Do not miss it!

That was a turbulent week on the stock markets. Since Monday, the German benchmark index had been under pressure and reached its low of around 14,820 points on Thursday morning.

Car stocks, Siemens and insurers, both trading ex-dividend, were responsible. We take a look at further turnaround candidates.

NSJ Gold, NIO, K+S: Size matters

  • Gold

Project developers in the commodities sector are speculative investments per se. At the same time, however, these projects offer many advantages for growth-oriented investors: they can develop enormous leverage on commodity prices and usually offer a clear investment horizon, as drilling programs and development targets are fixed in advance. Investors can position themselves on a one-to-two-year horizon and quickly assess whether or not an investment is on a sound track once the time limit expires. If a project then combines two megatrends, it becomes all the more exciting.

BASF, Saturn Oil & Gas, K+S: Three stocks for a yield kick

  • Oil

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.

We have brought you a colorful bouquet of commodities, including potash, gold and steel. Which share is ahead?
