Porsche, Gazprom, Teck Resources, GSP Resource - The raw materials rally continues!

There was a minor decline on Friday. Rarely could the DAX in recent weeks get caught up in a correction. But on triple witching, it fell from the morning onwards and lost a full 2% to 15,420 points over the course of the day. The all-time high at 15.808 is now a bit removed, and the sidelines also had to give up a bit. The S&P 500 had its first bad week since the significant May correction. However, the chart technicians are still calm; it was probably just a correction in the uptrend. Commodities were largely spared from the correction, Brent and WTI oil at highs near USD 74 and 71 respectively, and copper still just under USD 10,000.

    Porsche SE - Own battery production at the start

    Porsche AG will develop and produce battery cells for electric sports cars in a new joint venture with German lithium-ion specialist Custom Cells GmbH. The Zuffenhausen-based Company is investing a high double-digit million euro sum for this purpose and acquiring an 83.75% share in the Cellforce venture. Small-scale production of the high-performance batteries is scheduled to start as early as 2024.

    "The battery cell is the combustion chamber of the future," Porsche said in the weekend announcement. The new subsidiary will play an important role in research, development, production, and high-performance cell sales. The German premium manufacturers are thus taking the bottleneck topic of "batteries" onto their agenda. It should be clear that the first manufacturer of a sensible battery will capture a significant market share. Special batteries for sports cars must also cope with high temperatures, charge quickly, and recuperate energy effectively. The top issues of range, performance and charging time are now to be optimized in the engineering burgs.

    The new cells will allow charging in less than 15 minutes, Porsche CEO Oliver Blume said in an interview with Welt am Sonntag. Currently, the Taycan model takes about 22.5 minutes to charge the battery from 5 to 80%. In addition, Porsche plans to use silicon as the anode material for higher energy density and a more compact battery. The plant outside Stuttgart will have an annual capacity of at least 100 megawatt-hours, enough to produce cells for about 1,000 sports cars a year.

    Porsche shares have rushed from high to high in recent weeks, and the current positive scenario surrounding automotive stocks is likely to continue for a while. The all-time high of EUR 158 was reached in 2007; the share is now back just below the EUR 100 mark for the first time in 13 years. Hold!

    Gazprom - Super pay and rising energy prices

    Gazprom is one of the largest energy producers globally, especially in natural gas and oil. The Russian natural gas giant is currently benefiting from rising oil and gas prices. Sales volumes are also significantly higher than a year earlier due to weather conditions. Discussions about Nord Stream II are continuing, but construction is ongoing in part, and this project should be completed despite all objections.

    Natural gas exports to countries outside the former Soviet Union climbed 26.7% year-on-year to 92.3 billion cubic meters on a half-year basis. At 241.4 billion cubic meters, gas production was even a full 17.2% higher than a year earlier. Therefore, we should not be particularly surprised to see the commodities group's profits reach a substantial level in the current year. As a result, an EBITDA increase of about 50% to around USD 30 billion is expected.

    In addition to a very low P/E ratio of 4, the share also offers a dividend yield of over 6%. The price-to-book ratio of 0.4 compared to 1.2 in the industry is also outstanding. With a slightly corrected price level of EUR 6.22 compared to the high of EUR 6.40, one can place favorable buy limits again.

    GSP Resource - A Prospective Neighbor of Teck Resources

    GSP Resource Corp. is a mineral exploration and development Company specializing in properties in southwestern British Columbia. The Alwin Mine Project is in close proximity to its neighbor Teck Resources. The Company holds an option to acquire 100% of the Alwin rights, a claim for mining copper, gold and silver located in the Kamloops Mining Division, 18 km west of Logan Lake. GSP also owns 100% of the Olivine Mountain project, located approximately 600 kilometers away in the Tulameen complex.

    Adjacent to GSP in Highland Valley is the active mine of Teck Resources, one of the major resource producers focused on copper. With GSP Resource having already drilled grades of 1.29% copper equivalent over a distance of 14.1 m in initial drill samples and plans to explore further in 2021, the next set of results should provide even more indication of the property's recoverability. The historic underground mine, which was laid out over a length and depth of 500 meters by 300 meters, had already produced 233,100 tonnes of rock from five major sub-vertical zones from 1916 to 1981, containing a total of 3,786 tonnes of copper, 2,729 kilograms of silver and 46.2 kilograms of gold. The average diluted head grade was 1.5% copper. These are numbers that make economic mining feasible.

    With the current low capitalization of only CAD 6 million, GSP Resource should soon come into the focus of a major. The obvious geographical proximity would, of course, point to Teck Resources in the first place. Of the 24.2 million fully diluted shares, 23% are in the hands of management and other insiders, the free float is stated at about 50%. In our opinion, the low valuation is unlikely to last much longer with the current drilling.

    Globex Mining achieves several deal highlights: The exploration company receives CAD 2 million in cash from Agnico Eagle for a land purchase, with further opportunity for a growing asset. Over 23 months, an additional CAD 6 million is expected to flow to Globex Mining. Then follows an option agreement with Tomagold Corporation on a Canadian gold property at Gwillin Lake near Quebec. Total payments of six figures are due over the next four years. In addition, shares in Tomagold will be transferred to Globex Mining. While German Foreign Minister Baerbock was more conspicuous for flight mishaps, the Lufthansa Group achieved an adjusted EBIT of around EUR 1.1 billion in Q2/23. The subsidiaries SWISS, Austrian Airlines, Brussels Airlines, Eurowings and Lufthansa Technik also posted record results. Furthermore, Rheinmetall is also taking to the skies - now supplying drones to Ukraine.

    Bulls at the controls: Nel, Barrick Gold, Viva Gold! What about BASF?

    • Mining
    • Gold
    • chemicals
    • Copper

    Low inflation in the US has given new impetus to the bulls. Not only are growth stocks benefiting from the hope that the interest rate cycle is coming to an end, but also gold. Thus, the gold price reacted on Wednesday by jumping to over USD 1,960 per troy ounce. Top-tier gold stocks such as Barrick also responded positively. Exploration companies have significant catch-up potential, including Viva Gold. The Company is favorably valued and has again reported positive drill results. The fact that the interest rate cycle is nearing its end is also evident in the chemical industry. Most recently, BASF issued a warning, and there are sell recommendations. On the other hand, there are buy recommendations for the Nel share.

    Climate Crisis: Copper is the new oil! BYD, Orestone Mining, Ford, Nio - 100% acceleration in Greentech

    At the beginning of May, analysts at Bank of America declared a new "super cycle" for basic and raw materials. What they mean by this is that a whole series of important materials will be in great short supply for years. The prime example is the red metal copper. The price of the industrial metal has almost doubled in the past 12 months. It is currently quoted at around USD 8,350 per tonne, not far from the historic high of USD 10,750. During the pandemic, the metal briefly fell to USD 4,500. Currently, however, forecasts are once again pointing upwards. Bank of America expects the price to more than double again to around USD 18,000 in the next three years. We take a look at some hot stocks.
