Barrick Gold, Desert Gold, Iamgold - Takeovers on the rise

  • Mining
  • Gold
  • Commodities
  • Investments

The record year 2020, with highs of over USD 2,070 per troy ounce at the base price, filled the coffers of the large gold producers. Due to the correction that has been going on for 2 years, smaller and mid-sized mining companies lost more than 80% of their value, making them attractive takeover targets at a cheaper level. Recently, there has been an increase in acquisitions, which are likely to increase further in the coming months. A particularly high level of activity can be observed on the African continent at the moment, as the latest example shows.

Christmas hype alert: BASF, Meta Materials, Varta, Nordex - Strong start to 2023 with GreenTech!

  • Technology
  • Investments
  • metamaterials

Fossil energy supply is becoming more and more expensive. The political end of the supplier and raw material giant Russia creates a dangerous undersupply, especially for Central Europe. The current winter, but especially the next one, could pose problems, and the industry will probably have to calculate significantly higher input costs in the medium term. Products are becoming considerably more expensive to produce, so selling prices on the shelves are also increasing. The inflationary spiral will thus continue to spiral upward, and consumers' purchasing power will decline. GreenTech solutions are more in demand than ever for the purchase of low-cost energy. So which stocks to watch out for?

BASF, BioNTech, Cardiol Therapeutics: Stocks for 2023?

  • Biotechnology
  • chemicals
  • Investments

Is there a 400% upside potential in 2023? At the end of a challenging 2022 stock market year, we are looking ahead to the new year. Which share is worth buying, and which is better left alone? In the case of BASF, the high dividend yield is one of the attractions. The latest company news shows that the chemical group is also involved in the mega market of electromobility. But the dependence on gas supplies is causing uncertainty, and an analyst has renewed a sell recommendation for BASF shares. BioNTech, on the other hand, is looking good, even if the chart picture has recently clouded over. The development pipeline is full, capacities - especially in Asia - are being expanded, and analysts are also more courageous again. Investors also need a little courage and, above all, patience with Cardiol Therapeutics. They could soon be rewarded. The cash position of the biotech pearl is almost equal to the market capitalization, the main product is already in the Phase 2 pilot study, and analysts see massive upside potential.

The best cards for 2023: Amazon, Aspermont, flatexDEGIRO, TUI - Which stock will take off?

  • Investments
  • Fintech
  • Travel

Crisis, crisis, crisis - we do not want to hear any more about it at Christmas time. After the relief rally, the stock markets have gone back to sleep. It was turbulent until September, and then the correction was over for the time being. But how much "good" is already priced in for next year? Will there be a quick end to the war, can the inflation rate also fall, and what will interest rates do in 2023? Many unanswered questions that will likely only be answered gradually. The shares have to achieve a fair valuation from this mixed situation - perhaps that is why the correction is not quite over yet. Where are the best opportunities for investors?

Kodiak Copper, Volkswagen, Nordex - Copper price rises due to positive news from China!

  • Mining
  • Copper
  • Electromobility

In mid-July, the copper price marked its low for the year. Since then, a slight upward trend has formed, indicating a robust economy. There are as many as three positive signals for copper. First, there is the weakness of the dollar, which is supporting demand for the red gold. Second, China's announcement that it plans to strengthen its economy after easing Corona measures is providing a boost. If China eases its monetary policy, this would strengthen the real estate sector and fuel the hunger for commodities. Third, M&A activity around copper appears to be increasing. Therefore, we look at three companies in the copper space.

High volatility characterized the oil markets in 2022, a stock market year that will soon come to an end. While oil prices for West Texas Intermediate, WTI, reached over USD 130 per barrel after the outbreak of the Ukraine conflict, the black gold subsequently corrected by more than 40% due to heightened fears of recession. In the long term, analysts agree that oil prices will likely rise significantly due to increased demand and tight supply.

BioNTech top, Morphosys flop and Defence Therapeutics takeover candidate?

  • Biotechnology
  • vaccine
  • Cancer

Biotech shares are volatile. Investors were reminded of this again just last week. Moderna shares initially rose by almost 30%, only to fall back by around 10% towards the weekend. But overall, the mood in the biotech segment was positive. Moderna reported positive study results on a combination therapy of a Moderna cancer vaccine and the tumor drug pembrolizumab from Merck & Co. At BioNTech, two buy recommendations and the expansion in Asia created a good mood. This mood has also prevailed at Defence Therapeutics for several weeks. The Canadians reported positive study results against tumors, and their Accum technology delivers what it promises, in which case mRNA specialists such as Moderna, BioNTech and Co. should be interested in a cooperation or even acquisition. In contrast, Morphosys slides to a new multi-year low.

Gold price at USD 3,600? flatexDegiro, Globex Mining, Uniper

  • Mining
  • Gold

Year-end rally? No chance! The central banks have put a spanner in the works of optimists one week before the festive season. The continued tough stance against inflation is again fueling fears of a recession. There are cracks in the woodwork, and some observers even believe that gold could stand at USD 3,600. We shed light on the situation and discuss three stocks.

Power Nickel, Rock Tech Lithium, BYD - Race to secure critical raw materials

  • Mining
  • Lithium
  • Electromobility
  • Copper
  • Batteries

Since the major car manufacturers decided to equip their cars with electric drives, the demand for certain raw materials has skyrocketed. The result has been a sharp rise in prices. Some of the most important raw materials needed for the production of electric cars include lithium, cobalt and nickel. At the G20 summit in Bali, Indonesia, the world's largest nickel producer proposed to the Canadians that they set up an organization similar to OPEC for nickel. Such moves are a sign that the battle for key EV commodities is growing. So today, we look at one nickel and one lithium company and see how the battery and electric car maker BYD is positioning itself.

Altech Advanced Materials, BYD, Apple - With this innovation Germany becomes an energy driver

  • Energy
  • Batteries
  • Electromobility

Germany is known for its engineering. With Altech Advanced Materials, a new type of battery is paving its way that trumps all previous storage capacities. Together with Fraunhofer IKTS, the Heidelberg-based company is breaking new ground. BYD is also planning another battery plant, but in the USA. So far, the Chinese carmaker has held back in the consumer market there, preferring to focus on electric buses. But it will soon be adding another EV brand to its international portfolio. Apple will soon have to prepare itself. To comply with competition law, the EU demands that the Cupertino-based company open up its iPhone and iPad systems to other app stores. Find out what this means for sales here.
