NIO, Silver Viper, BYD: E-car investors should think outside the box

Electromobility is turning industries upside down, much more than many think. It has long been known that electric cars rely on lithium and copper. It is also an open secret that Chinese manufacturers now have a competitive advantage in electromobility and that manufacturers such as BYD and NIO are rightly being hyped. However, in this article, we will look at why silver can be an alternative for investors with a weakness for e-car stocks. But first, let's look at an auto stock that has it all.

About the author


NIO: A range of 1,000 kilometers is something to talk about

NIO unveiled a new model a few weeks ago and was one of the investors' darlings for a while. But recently, the value weakened somewhat. In the last month alone, it fell by a whopping 20%. What does this mean for the share? If you look at the chart from an annual perspective, the correction no longer seems so dire. The upward trend is still intact. The first investors are already repurchasing the share at EUR 40. If the stock comes under pressure again, a healthy correction could also allow prices to fall below EUR 35, without this necessarily being a bad sign in the long term.

Most recently, a Deutsche Bank analyst also issued a buy recommendation for NIO. The Company is increasingly a competitor for Tesla and further increased its sales in the fourth quarter. The new premium sedan with the somewhat clumsy name ET7 indicates that NIO's cars could also find brisk sales in the future. The Chinese flagship is said to enable ranges of up to 1,000 kilometers - making even Elon Musk jealous. The NIO share shows that prices and fundamental developments do not always run in lockstep and that investors need to keep a cool head, especially in times of weakness. However, given the general conditions and the Company's situation, this should be easy for investors: Apart from the share price, everything is fine with NIO.

Silver Viper: The Instis love this small silver stock

The boom in electric mobility is currently spilling over into the commodity markets: Copper has known no stopping for months. Silver has also freed itself in recent months and, at times, even made gold look old. Silver has always been used in seat heaters, displays, infotainment systems and silver-coated contacts. Even more of the precious metal is needed in electric cars or hybrids because of silver's high conductivity. The Canadian Company Silver Viper operates in Mexico and is developing a gold-silver project there, La Virginia, which the Company wholly owns. Furthermore, there are options to acquire further claims. A few weeks ago, good drilling results pushed the share.

The property has already been explored in the past. Silver Viper can therefore rely on historical data, which makes exploration easier for the Company. Further drilling is planned for 2021. Silver Viper's management emphasizes being in the same boat with shareholders and holds 23%. In addition, some institutional investors hold another 60% in Silver Viper. The share has been running sideways for months and could prove to be an alternative to already ambitiously valued stocks from the e-car sector. Silver Viper is currently valued at only EUR 23.5 million and that may change on good upcoming drill results.

BYD: All-inclusive share rides roller coaster

One stock that is also causing a stir in the wake of the e-car hype is BYD. The Chinese manufacturer shines as a jack-of-all-trades: BYD not only builds electric cars but is also a well-known producer of batteries. The latter will soon be increasingly offered to other manufacturers and the battery division could then go public. Compared to NIO, the stock showed greater relative strength last month and lost about 15%. BYD also showed initial signs of stabilization yesterday. Bargain hunters can still hope for prices between EUR 20 and EUR 22. As with NIO, everything is still okay for BYD from a chart perspective. Although the valuations are high, the companies are also well positioned. Those who find the drop in NIO or BYD too great should not disregard silver - Silver Viper, in particular, currently appears to be in a solid starting position.

Blackrock Silver, K+S, Barrick Gold - China first!

  • Silver

The Chinese government is demonstrating with all its might who has the last word. The regulation of industries and business models, which, as recently seen in the Chinese education sector, destroys the existence of companies and has weighed heavily on Chinese stocks in recent days. If the situation continues to escalate, it could easily negatively color the world's stock markets' mood. That is when it is worth looking at precious metals stocks, as they usually benefit disproportionately from rising commodity prices in times of crisis. Who will come out on top?

First Majestic Silver, Silver Viper, Fortuna Silver Mines - Is silver picking up again?

  • Silver

Inflation in the US climbed again in June, reaching 5.4%, the highest level since 2008. With the expansion of the money supply in the US, it is no wonder. The money supply also increased significantly in Europe. In some cases by EUR 50 billion in one week. Nevertheless, the inflation rate in Germany fell slightly to 2.3%. An end to money printing is not in sight. In contrast to gold, silver is a sought-after raw material in the industry. The price increase in precious metals has stopped since June, and there has been consolidation. It is only a matter of time when the price of silver will pick up again as inflation forces people to invest their money in assets. So today, we take a look at three silver stocks.

SGL Carbon, Millennial Lithium, Standard Lithium, Blackrock Silver - Millions of batteries needed!

If current trends in Germany remain valid, the share of electric vehicles in new sales will shake the 25% mark in the next 5 years. In a recent forecast, the Center of Automotive Management (CAM) predicts new car sales of around 480,000 battery-electric cars and plug-in hybrids this year, representing a good 15% share of new registrations of an estimated 3.3 million passenger cars. The assumption is that battery and plug-in hybrid vehicles will each account for around 50%. By 2025, according to the forecast, the e-vehicle share will rise to 27% of new sales, of which about 65% are expected to be pure electric vehicles. The scenario for the battery industry is thus set.
