The market does what it wants. Anticipating a worst-case scenario, the markets drew a zig-zag ahead of Tuesday’s election but then settled back into a positive momentum. Dax alone made-up almost 700 points after the index plunged below 12,000 on Wednesday. Although the election spectacle is still not over, the stock markets are rising as if there were no tomorrow. On a positive note, gold has held on to its crucial support zone and is marching dynamically towards its all-time high. A breakout should be a matter of time.

    Gold mines explode

    Due to the rising gold price, first the gold mines of the first row like Barrick Gold, Iam Gold or Newcrest Mining, profit disproportionately. Should the gold price march consistently above the old highs, the leverage will lie instead with the smaller producers. The Canadian exploration Company, Velocity Minerals, is exciting. The Canadians are focused on the discovery and development of gold deposits in Bulgaria. Bulgaria is the country with the largest gold reserves in Europe. The Company's strategy is to develop a low-cost operation where multiple projects deliver gold concentrates to an existing central processing facility.

    Prospective drilling

    Velocity Minerals' flagship project is its 70% interest in Rozino. A PFS, Pre-Feasibility Study, was released last August. Gold mining production could start in 2022, with an after-tax internal rate of return of 27%, per annum! Yesterday, Velocity announced another milestone. In addition to Rozino, another coup appears to have been achieved on the Obichnik project. Both the two new drill holes tested from Premka Zone yielded high mineralization results.

    Golden Future

    President and CEO of Velocity Minerals commented: "The high-grade nature of the gold mineralization is very encouraging and there is more drilling to do at this target. We remain focused on building a multi-asset gold production profile in Bulgaria with a ‘Hub & Spoke’ development strategy. With the recent positive prefeasibility at the Rozino project, we continue to advance our exploration drill programs for resource expansion and definition at Rozino as well as the Obichnik, Makedontsi and Iglika projects."

    Numbers weak thanks to Nikola

    A successful hydrogen Company is in the red. How is that possible? In the case of the Norwegian showpiece Company, NEL ASA, it is due to the participation in the US truck builder Nikola, which still has to defend itself against massive fraud allegations. The negative market value adjustment of NOK 513.3 resulted in an EBITDA of NOK -42.1 million in the third quarter. Reported EBIT was NOK -116.3 million, while the pre-tax loss was NOK -628.6 million, as described above. In terms of turnover, the Scandinavian companies were able to maintain their turnover at NOK 147.7 million, roughly the same level as the previous year (NOK 148.9 million).

    Bright future

    NEL ASA was only able to show the positive trend in the hydrogen industry in terms of the order backlog. With an order backlog of NOK 940.0 million, the Company topped the previous year's figure by a whopping 60%. The coffers are full to the brim with NOK 2.5 billion, the equivalent of around EUR 230 million, to finance further dynamic growth.

    New prestige order

    Earlier this week, NEL ASA announced a significant order. None other than the Spanish utility giant Iberdrola selected the Norwegians as the preferred supplier for a 20-megawatt green fertilizer project in Spain. According to press reports, the plant is scheduled to go into operation as early as 2021. Iberdrola, one of the world's largest electricity suppliers, wants to build the largest environmentally friendly hydrogen plant in cooperation with fertilizer manufacturer, Fertiberia.

    Takeover fever in the biotech sector! Will MorphoSys now be followed by Defence Therapeutics, Evotec and Bayer?

    It has happened: Novartis is bidding for MorphoSys. Once again, a long-lasting and persistent rumour mill eventually confirms itself. Those who remained loyal to MorphoSys despite heavy selling last fall have now made a profit of over 300%. If we turn the analytical magnifying glass on the sector, we can see that the speculative biotech stock market segment has started to move again since the challenging year 2023. Hopes of falling interest rates in the near future, along with several other M&A hopes, have led to steady inflows into listed bio-ETFs, resulting in fund managers having recently adjusted their weightings upwards. We analyze which stocks are currently making the loudest noise.

    Energy supply is one of the top issues for investors. A reliable energy supply promotes stable business conditions and supports economic growth. While the opposite is true in Germany, companies like Mercedes-Benz are focusing on lucrative projects abroad. A joint venture with China to expand charging stations is on the Stuttgart-based company's agenda. The German company Altech Advanced Materials is committed to a secure and affordable energy supply. Together with Fraunhofer IKTS, they are developing a stationary ceramic solid-state battery based on salt, especially for critical infrastructure facilities such as hospitals. This enables a smooth, vital power supply for intensive care units, even in emergencies. While Mercedes-Benz is currently eyeing China, the retail giant Alibaba is publishing its quarterly figures this week, serving as an indicator of the country's economic development. The details are summarized below.
