How much lithium do BYD, VW, Tesla and Co. need? Standard Lithium, Edison Lithium - Who can deliver quickly?

  • Mining
  • Lithium
  • Electromobility

Parallel to the electric car boom, many raw material prices have also exploded. Lithium has risen 1200% in price in Chinese yuan since the beginning of 2021, and nickel has risen by 40%. Against the backdrop of continued high global demand for e-vehicles, many high-performance batteries will be needed. As a result, just about every automaker is planning with its own specifications on how to handle battery procurement. BYD, VW, Daimler and Tesla already have their gigafactories or are currently planning them. Lithium is one of a battery's most important raw material components, along with nickel, cobalt, graphite and copper. However, the quantities available on the markets are limited, as producers are also still thin on the ground. We shed light on a market that is determined by shortages.

New opportunities at Aspermont, Palantir and Rheinmetall

  • Technology
  • Defense
  • Digitization
  • Mining
  • Stockmarket

After months of losses in technology stocks, there are signs of a recovery. The opportunities are lucrative in the long term. Market leaders have lost disproportionately since the beginning of the year due to fears of further interest rate hikes. The question is how far the monetary authorities will continue to turn the interest rate screw so as not to stifle economic growth altogether. If, on the other hand, the monetary policy were to become even looser again, the door would be opened to a further technology boom.

These sources of return concern us all: Fresenius, Defence Therapeutics, BioNTech

  • Biotechnology

When people receive an unexpected diagnosis or a loved one suddenly dies, our health suddenly becomes very important. Even though there is often no room for such topics in the daily lives of investors, it is worthwhile to deal with health for several reasons. On the one hand, preventive care brings the most important of all returns; on the other hand, this rather unpleasant topic in everyday life also holds opportunities if we focus on health risks and look at possible solutions. We present three stocks from the healthcare sector that deserve attention.

Barrick Gold, Tocvan Ventures, Newmont - Gold stocks facing a renaissance?

  • Mining
  • Gold
  • Silver
  • Copper

The strong dollar has weighed on the gold price in recent weeks. However, the strength of the US dollar is rather a weakness of the euro. While the FED raised interest rates to fight inflation, the ECB hesitated. While the ECB recently raised interest rates by 50 basis points, it was 75 in the US. In addition, the energy crisis in Europe, especially Germany, is putting additional pressure on the euro. For US exports, this is not good news. Therefore, the markets gratefully accepted Jerome Powell's statements. The chairman of the FED wants to slow down the pace of interest rate increases. The gold price also jumped in response. We look at three companies that should benefit from a rising gold price.

Oil at the beginning of a supercycle - ExxonMobil, Saturn Oil+Gas, Chevron

  • Oil

The electricity of the future will be generated solely by wind and sun, and what's more, only battery-powered electric cars will flood the highways. The fossil fuel age has finally had its day and is being replaced by renewable energies. These words could have come both from the Green party program and from a Grimm Brothers' book of fairy tales because the reality looks different. Fossil fuels still dominate the global energy mix with around 80%, while photovoltaic and wind power plants continue to fail the 5% hurdle. Thus, humanity is at the beginning rather than the end of a new oil supercycle.

Desert Gold Ventures CEO Jared Scharf on gold as a hedge against inflation

  • Expert
  • DesertGold
  • Gold

As the European Central Bank raised its interest rate by 50 basis points on July 21 in line with the U.S. Fed and the Bank of England, the price of gold in the London Bullion Market Association fell to USD 1,700 per ounce. Recession danger is rising as more rate increases are anticipated. Changing consumer and equity market conditions are reflected in declining physical and exchange-traded fund demand for gold. Desert Gold Ventures CEO Jared Scharf explains us his view.

Erin Ventures, Uniper, BASF - How business continues to grow outside Germany

  • Mining
  • boron
  • chemicals

Old hands in the market like BASF are in a strong transformation process. Russia's war of aggression in Ukraine has put the energy supply from gas on the line. But global players like the Ludwigshafen-based company already have a plan B, to the delight of shareholders. The situation is very different at Uniper AG. Here, the great dependence on Russian gas supplies and the expensive world market contracts that the Company had to conclude brought Germany's largest gas supplier to the brink of bankruptcy in recent weeks. The German government is spending EUR 15 billion to keep the Company afloat. At the taxpayer's expense. Erin Ventures shows where it is really worth investing now with the Element Boron.

Inflation, gold and silver - The pot is bubbling: Barrick Gold, Manuka Resources, First Majestic, Standard Lithium

  • Mining
  • Gold
  • Silver
  • Commodities

The set-up for rising precious metals could not be better at the moment. Due to the enormous price surges for energy and technical equipment, the operating costs of mines are increasing, and exploration is also becoming more expensive. In the medium term, this should lead to declining production in the precious metals sector, especially since prices have been falling significantly for some time. However, physical availability is not given at the low spot prices, as an ounce of silver is currently still traded between EUR 23 and EUR 28. The converted spot price would be around EUR 19. We have interesting commodity stocks in focus.
