The Corona pandemic continues to keep the world on tenterhooks. Nevertheless, the S&P jumped a good 8% within three weeks. How should you currently set up your portfolio? That is the question. Many stocks are at their all-time highs and have had real rallies. If you want to protect yourself from a setback, you have to anticipate trends and find stocks that are either broad enough or ones that can promptly score with good news. Preferably both. If these candidates are then also at all-time highs, there is potential. We highlight three interesting companies.

    Kleos Space - Great potential

    An exciting and fast-growing space stock is Kleos Space. The Company is currently active in the maritime sector. It collects data from ships by collecting and analyzing radio frequency signals via satellite. The satellite cluster, which consists of 4 satellites, stands out from the competition because localization can be more precise than conventional triangulated surveying. This business area is suitable for increasing maritime security and averting threats such as piracy, illegal fishing and smuggling. At the same time, more information increases border protection.

    Kleos Space can be described as a Data-as-a-Service company that creates data products from the collected data and their proprietary algorithms. These data products are sold on a subscription basis and delivered via API to government and commercial customers worldwide to support decision-makers. Two more satellite clusters are to be launched in 2021 - the first in summer and the second towards the end of the year. The aim is to improve coverage worldwide and generate more data.

    The scalability in selling the data is virtually unlimited and there is an identified initial customer base of 160 institutions. Currently, it is still waiting for the 4 satellites to align correctly with each other. Once this position is achieved, the Company can launch the subscription model. The stock has been in a steady uptrend since December 2020.

    SAP - Strong figures

    After SAP shares came under pressure at the end of October 2020, everything can now turn around for the better, as the Company presented strong figures on Tuesday last week. CFO Luka Mucic emphasized that incoming orders for software licenses and the cloud business were higher than they had been in 5 years. Simultaneously, operating margins and operating income saw the strongest increase in 10 years.

    On April 20, SAP announced the spin-off of its financial services business. With the new partner Dediq, a new company is to be formed in which SAP will hold 20%. Dediq is to invest EUR 500 million in the project.

    The new Company is expected to respond better and faster to the changing needs of the banking and insurance industry and cover the core areas of the business. The project is scheduled to start in January 2021. Next, the share should close the gap at EUR 122.60 in chart terms.

    TUI - Hoping for the summer business

    TUI was hit hard by the Corona Crisis, as was the entire tourism industry. Since the low of March 16, 2020, at EUR 1.48, the share price has recovered over time to EUR 5.47 on February 25 this year. Since the 3rd wave, the share has come back and is currently stuck at the 50 moving average. The main question at the moment is whether the summer business is going to go well. Nobody can say with certainty at the moment. Some German politicians see a reason to hope that there may be vacation travel. Others are somewhat dampening expectations.

    The Germans are travel world champions and have a thirst for travel. The EU wants to introduce a vaccination passport, which would lead to a significant upturn in tourism. Nevertheless, it is currently still pure speculation what will happen in Germany in the summer. The world looks different in England. The British are much further ahead with their vaccination campaign than we are and they are TUI's second-largest market after Germany. In England, the chances of a vacation in the summer are much better. Friedrich Joussen, CEO of TUI AG, recently confirmed this view publicly on British television. The British are expected to be allowed to travel again from May 17. TUI Cruises has already published its first cruise dates.

    What remains is the question of the share's potential. The fact is that there is a dilution that should not be underestimated due to the state aid, an almost non-existent cash flow and convertible bonds. At the beginning of April, TUI AG placed a EUR 400 million convertible bond. In principle, the board could issue another EUR 1.6 billion in convertible bonds. Anyone who believes that the pandemic will end quickly can participate in the upswing in the tourism industry with TUI.

    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.

    Business against climate change is booming - Allianz SE, Klimat X, Nio

    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.

    Deutsche Bank, Globex Mining, Barrick Gold - Enthusiasm for gold is back

    • Mining

    • Vanadium

    Despite several interest rate hikes, the price of gold has recently risen to over USD 2,000 again. Even though the latest increase coincided with the attack on Israel, this is unlikely to be the reason for it. Instead, the high demand from central banks is responsible for the steady gold price. Within the first 9 months, the central banks bought a whopping 800 tons of gold. That is a new record. The geopolitical tensions could also turn more and more private individuals into so-called gold bugs, who are making provisions for crises and assuming that gold will continue to rise in the long term. As the Fed has paused interest rates, this could give the gold price a further boost.
