Countries around the world are pumping billions into the expansion of renewable energies. At the same time, there is a lack of investment in fossil fuels, which are still urgently needed. We explain who is profiting from this reluctance to invest and whether, in the end, another commodity might not come out on top, using three shares as examples.

    Nordex: Who is turning the margin?

    The plans of the new German government are ambitious: More space for wind turbines, only half the time for planning and approval, and huge power lines from north to south - underground, so that citizens' initiatives cannot take a blocking stance in the first place. Wind power operators, such as Nordex, welcome the plans. Recently, business in Germany has stalled a bit. Due to bureaucracy and limited space, domestic business has not been able to pick up the pace that would have been possible. That is why Nordex is looking for solutions abroad. In a research article on, the Company states it is looking for growth in Europe and South America. Most recently, the Company reported orders from Peru and Brazil.

    Although the general conditions for Nordex sound quite positive and customers are in a buying mood, there are also downsides. The margin in 2021 is only 1.0%. That is too low and means that not much of all the new orders will stick - at least if the margin does not change quickly. To become more profitable, Nordex switched its wind turbines to the new Delta 4000 platform, and already in 2020, the new platform accounted for around 81% of orders. Since the margin is still low in 2021, it will take a further increase in profitability to turn the tide. The stock has been dynamic recently - the new orders, in particular, have been convincing. But Nordex must work on its margin. Only then can the billions invested in regenerative energy make Nordex's cash register ring.

    Troilus Gold: 8.1 million ounces of gold and counting

    Whenever politicians and central banks flood the markets with billions, concerns about market distortions and inflation increase, gold has always been considered a safe haven in such cases. The Canadian Company Troilus Gold has a gigantic gold-copper property in the Canadian district of Quebec. Despite a resource of 8.1 million ounces of gold, the Troilus team keeps drilling. "It is important for investors to know that Troilus is most likely more than just a deposit of gold. Troilus has the potential to be an entire gold belt. All of our work to date points to that, and each drill hole makes the picture we have of the Troilus project even clearer," said Justin Reid, president and CEO of Troilus, in an interview several months ago.

    The Company recently announced a feasibility study in 2022 that will provide further insight into the economics. With the infrastructure already in place on and around the property, which CEO Reid says is worth the equivalent of about CAD 350 million, Troilus Gold should be well-positioned. The share could pick up steam once gold gets back into favorable waters. Currently, the share is trading at its low for the year at EUR 0.50. In June, the share had reached the EUR 0.90 mark.

    Gazprom: Sanctions looming soon?

    While politicians are pushing ahead with climate change, which is undoubtedly an urgent humanitarian project, the classic oil industry is somewhat out of focus. But oil and gas are still essential pillars in the energy mix, shown, for example, by the state of the German real estate portfolio: Here, oil and gas heating systems are still the standard. While Shell and BP are increasingly building wind farms, the competition is profiting from Gazprom. Whether to the west or the east, the Company is busy supplying gas worldwide and earning handsomely from it. One risk, however, could be Putin's recent muscle-flexing on the border with Ukraine. Russia is always good for negotiating sanctions.

    While Gazprom offers a good deal but is also risky for the reasons mentioned, Nordex is not yet putting its horsepower on the road. First, the margin has to increase sustainably - no easy task in times of disrupted supply chains and expensive raw materials. Troilus Gold is better positioned. Canada is a legally secure location for commodity companies, and gold is not subject to geopolitical conflict. Although the Company is in the early stages, it has a lot to offer to make this phase successful.

    Barrick Gold, Globex Mining, BP - Commodities In the spotlight: Supercycle started?

    • Mining
    • Gold
    • Silver
    • Commodities
    • Oil
    • Gas

    Global demand for commodities is reaching new heights, partly driven by increasing geopolitical tensions. The exchange of attacks between Iran and Israel is a case in point. This conflict, deeply rooted in religious and political differences, continues to escalate and could have far-reaching consequences for international stability and commodity markets. With this latest escalation of the Middle East conflict, security aspects in the global competition for important resources such as gold, silver and copper are taking center stage. China is demonstrating its hunger for resources. However, the price of oil has also risen recently. There has long been talk of a commodity supercycle. Perhaps it has now finally begun. Where should one invest now?

    Discount battle over: Commodities on the counter-offensive! Rheinmetall, Power Nickel, BASF and Varta in focus

    • Defense

    Since the bombing of Israel by Iran, the clocks are ticking differently in the Middle East. The next stage of escalation has been reached. If Israel now uses the right to defense as an opportunity to initiate something bigger, it is here: the conflagration. Gold and silver are shining as safe-haven currencies and pulling long-neglected commodity shares through the roof. Now is the time to keep the sails in the wind and ride the long-awaited upward momentum. In the energy transition, strategically safer jurisdictions that can safely serve the growing hunger for commodities are still in demand. We highlight a few opportunities.

    The cannons are thundering, and gold and silver remain in demand! Barrick, Newmont, Desert Gold and SMT Scharf in focus

    The overnight attack by Iran on Israel underscores the current geopolitical uncertainty. Regardless of whether there is further escalation in the Middle East, the world has already changed dramatically since February 2022. This includes shifts in investor behavior. Until the first quarter of 2024, shares in the artificial intelligence and high-tech sectors were bullish; now, defense stocks and precious metals are on the agenda. After decades of disarmament, NATO, in particular, is now facing a decade of rearmament, and private investors are expressing their restraint in consumption by increasing their focus on private security. This is reflected in the increased purchases of gold and silver. For years, precious metals have been stable guarantors of the daily dwindling purchasing power. We believe that the new valuation cycle in the commodities sector is only just beginning, which is why we are examining favorable entry opportunities.
