JinkoSolar, Scottie Resources, Palantir - Buying the future!
Comparing the figures of companies with their stock market valuation at the moment could make you dizzy. Particularly in the future topics of hydrogen, photovoltaics or data analysis, market capitalizations are five to six years ahead. What is important here is an innovative business model, growth and above all, a dominant market position.

The Golden Triangle
With gold mines, of course, the first-class location of the mines and the high degree of mineralization are added to this. Here the Canadian gold exploration Company Scottie Resources has hit the bull's eye. Scottie Resources' projects are located in prime locations in the so-called "Golden Triangle". The Golden Triangle in British Columbia is one of the most productive mineralization areas in the world and is world-renowned for its rich deposits. The Canadians own more than 25,000 hectares in total. The claims also include a 100% interest in the high grade, formerly producing Scottie Gold Mine and Bow Properties.
Sensational results in the "Blueberry Zone"
Yesterday, Scottie Resources' management reported superior assay results for the Blueberry Zone of the Bow property. Bow is located just 2 kilometers northeast of the Scottie Mine. Also, a new direction of mineralization has been identified that is hostile to the historic Blueberry vein target. The intersection of several high-grade intercepts along the strike (including 22.3 grams per tonne gold over 6.1 metres) defines an intense mineralized line running north-south. This new target remains open along the strike and at depth, with numerous high-grade grab samples defining a zone with a strike length above 800 metres.
Full program next year
Scottie Resources CEO Bradley Rourke commented enthusiastically on the results: "Fantastic drill results in an ideal location. This new Blueberry trend is a near-surface target, literally situated on a road. The grades and widths of these results get us extremely excited about the economic potential of the area. Bolstered by the high-grade grab samples from this year, drilling in 2021 will see us aggressively step out along this new trend to establish the full extent of this remarkably large and high-grade system."**
Prestige order drives price jump
Palantir Technologies, a US-based provider of software and services related to the analysis of large amounts of data, has once again secured a strong new partner in the public sector. A three-year contract with a total value of USD 44.4 million has been signed with none other than the FDA, the Food and Drug Administration. In return, Palantir will provide the US Food and Drug Administration with its data integration and analysis services. Approximately 50% of Palantir's clients are currently private customers, with the other half of the contracts coming increasingly from government and intelligence circles. For example, Palantir has been commissioned by the US government to develop a system that will be used to track the production and distribution of Corona vaccines.
Currently still irrevocable rating
After reaching an all-time high of USD 33.00 last week, there was a brief, painful 30% correction to USD 21.00. The rebound, however, already came with the FDA notification. The Palantir share is currently trading at USD 30.00 again. Looking more closely at the figures for the third quarter, the current market value of USD 50.48 billion does not seem justified. Overall, however, Palantir is an absolute acquisition machine. The growth story is on track. Although the Americans still have to prove their stock market valuation, which is far too high at the moment, they are the undisputed market leader in the future topics of data analysis and artificial intelligence.
Figures at last
Investors had had to wait a long time for the quarterly figures of the Chinese photovoltaic manufacturer JinkoSolar. JinkoSolar could not report a real bang, but rather relatively stable results. So the Chinese have thus been able to expand their business further. Deliveries in the third quarter of the 2020 financial year reached almost 5.12 megawatts (MW), an increase of 53.8 % on the same period of the previous year. In the same period of the 2020 fiscal year, Company sales rose by 17.2%year-on-year to a total of USD 1.29 billion, thus meeting the upper estimates of analysts.
The development of the operating margin was less pleasing. At 6.1%, it was significantly lower than in the same period of the previous year. In September 2019, it was still at 8.5%. The net result was a profit of a meager USD 1.0 million. Although management is aiming for a global market share of 15% by 2021, the share initially went for a dive, but yesterday it was able to revise its initial losses during the day. The support zone at USD 60.00 is significant and should be maintained. In the long term, the story is on track.
