Nokia, Square, Triumph Gold - The money is on the street!

The international central banks have long agreed: Holding money makes no sense. After years of minus interest rate pressure, there is now to be a gentle inflation. For the consumer, this means less money in the account because of fees and minus interest, and when it is then spent, the rising inflation ensures a discount in consumption. No matter how you look at it: Money is a burden. Following the price markups for real estate and stocks brings us to a conclusion: money is abundant, but the gap between rich and poor could not be greater. Bottom line: There is no alternative to buying stocks!

Nokia - Focus on 5G and digitalization

There was a fabulous rally in Nokia shares at the beginning of the year due to social media campaigns, which unfortunately was not backed up by operational figures. While that is certainly the case with Tesla and Plug Power, only Nokia saw a prompt sell-off of almost 50% from EUR 5.9 to EUR 3.10. Recently, the price was able to stabilize again because the reported figures were at least in line with positive expectations, and the outlook was also cheerful again.

Yesterday, Nokia then announced a major restructuring. The Company wants to focus its energy primarily on 5G technology, and the global capacity expansion still holds some work in store for the network expert. In parallel, the Company wants to permanently reduce its costs by EUR 600 million with the targeted reduction of up to 10,000 jobs. In this context, costs of around EUR 700 million will be incurred by 2023, as the long-standing workforce is to be reduced in a socially responsible manner. Over a period of 18 to 24 months, 80,000 to 85,000 will then remain; the exact number depends on the development of the sales markets over the next two years. With this announcement, management is being somewhat cautious about the future.

In parallel with the job cuts, Nokia wants to put more money into research and development around 5G, digital infrastructures and cloud services. After a temporary rise to EUR 3.72, the share price dropped again to EUR 3.57 yesterday. From a chart perspective, this puts the stock back in no man's land, and it only becomes a buy above EUR 3.85.

Square Inc. - Back on top with peer-to-peer

Square operates a straightforward payment platform for merchants with the app CASH. In recent years, the fundamental growth driver was the consistent development of low-cost POS systems, which allowed even the smallest merchants and service providers to be invoiced immediately. The pandemic created the need for an online and takeaway solution; in the pandemic, customers now want to order and pay in a variety of ways. Square, therefore, had to develop an omnichannel offering to meet this need.

For some time, transactions have been increasing mainly in the peer-to-peer space. The gross payment volume of omnichannel and online sellers accounts for more than half of the sellers' gross payment volume, up from one-third 2 years ago. That's a transformative shift that will change Square's business for years and place new demands on the platform.

Now the music service Tidal is being added as the next transformation, so analysts expect above-average growth rates in the coming years. Currently, the P/E ratio is about 200, but in 2 years, it could fall below 50. After all, Square grew by an impressive 100% in 2020. The share was at a high of USD 283 and is now quoted at USD 235, and the market capitalization is around USD 110 billion. The further performance of the Square share will probably also depend on the further development of the NASDAQ, which is currently sputtering a bit.

Triumph Gold - Big Creek is now integrated

Triumph Gold Corp, formerly known as Northern Freegold Resources Ltd, is a Canadian-based junior resource Company engaged in property exploration in the Yukon Territory and Arizona. In March, they assembled a full-time team focused on advancing the Freegold Mountain project within the prolific Dawson Range copper-gold belt in Yukon.

The flagship project hosts three NI 43-101 mineral occurrences and covers an extensive section of the Big Creek fault zone, a regional structure directly associated with epithermal gold and silver mineralization and gold-rich porphyry copper mineralization. Concurrent with the technical team's expansion, Mr. Bower officially opened Triumph Gold's technical office in Kelowna, BC, last October with Brian May's appointment as senior geoscientist and Marty Henning as principal geologist. A very well-rounded team for further drilling.

The Kelowna technical group has already been working closely with Triumph Gold's existing team to identify new targets that further expand the existing resources. The objective is to develop key areas for exploration on the 200 square kilometer Freegold Mountain project as well as the Tad/Toro property and the recently acquired Big Creek property, all within the Dawson Range copper-gold district. We expect exploration to show very positive results in 2021.
Triumph's shares have a current capitalization of CAD 23.3 million at a price of CAD 0.17 per share. One of the major shareholders is Newmont Corporation, with 12.8%, while Zijin Mining Fund owns 9.8%. With a rising gold price in mind, one is well invested within Triumph Gold.

Coinbase, Plug Power, NSJ Gold Corp. - Bitcoin, inflation, gold - triple whammy!

  • Gold

The crypto craze has erupted. Nothing is currently causing as much of a stir as cryptocurrencies, their trading platforms and all the service companies surrounding them. Never before have there been such price surges in associated assets in such a short period. There is widespread talk of the crypto world as a means to combat inflation and provide a new payment system. Let's be honest: a currency that fluctuates by more than 500% every six months is hardly suitable for mapping the payment flows of millions of transactions in the goods sector. A Bitcoin that cost EUR 10,000 in the summer of 2020 has reached prices of over EUR 50,000 today. How should one deal with this alleged "currency" - Impossible, as Bitcoin itself is probably inflationary!

Barrick Gold, Desert Gold, Steinhoff: Where inflation is an opportunity

  • Gold

Inflation is back! In the USA, annual inflation has already climbed to 2.6%. Experts believe that the 3% mark will also be targeted during the course of the year. What does this mean for investors? It is becoming increasingly more important to protect one's assets! Shares can play a central role here as these traditionally perform well during inflationary phases. But beware: Inflation strikes particularly hard at growth stocks that will only make profits in the distant future.

Osino Resources, Barrick Gold, Sibanye Stillwater - Gold in Turnaround!

  • Gold

The large gold producers are left lying in the current environment. What counts on the capital markets is the slight inflation, which one gladly accepts, because the economies have been suffering for years from the prescribed minus interest rate and deflationary tendencies. In other stock market cycles, demonetization phases were always good times for the precious metals; this is not yet evident at present. After the significant correction in March 2020, there were sharp rises in mining stocks until late summer 2020, but a large part of the gains will gradually melt away again in 2021. Is there still hope for the precious metals?
