SAP, Triumph Gold, JinkoSolar - Mutti blows to get started!

It seems done. Yesterday afternoon, the German Chancellor Angela Merkel (German nickname: Mutti) decided on the second lockdown of this year due to the vastly increasing number of cases in the Corona Pandemic. Although this lockdown is supposed to be somewhat "lighter and more social" than the first, it is causing uncertainty among the population and the capital markets. It remains to be seen whether the stock markets will reach a new low after the experience in spring, or whether they will only get shaken vigorously for a short time. Should the worst-case scenario occur, the central banks with their money printing machines will undoubtedly be ready again. So a second chance to get started? In any case, keep an eye on gold stocks.

Chance from the second row

After the gold price reached its high of over USD 2,030.00 in early August, it has since corrected at a high level of around USD 1,900.00. Uncertainties due to the pandemic, the US elections - which will be finalized on November 3, and the high national debt, should provide the precious metal with a further tailwind. Triumph Gold, a growth-oriented Canadian gold exploration and development Company with a large land package in the mining-friendly Yukon, has also returned to lower price level. While the value in the summer of 2019 was still at CAD 0.72, the current value is only CAD 0.22. The market capitalization is the equivalent of almost EUR 20 million.

Program expansion

Recently, the Canadians announced that it had completed the fully funded exploration program PR20-07. This program included minor trenching and reconnaissance sampling as well as 2,068 metres of diamond drilling. The partially near-surface surveys are now in the evaluation and analysis phase. According to Jesse Halle, Vice President of Exploration, several of the reconnaissance samples collected indicate that gold mineralization is much more widespread than previously thought. As a result, the 2021 exploration program will expand.

Conflicting quarterly figures!

SAP would have expected the third quarter figures to sound similar to those of its competitor, Microsoft. After all, it was precisely the cloud business that helped the US Americans to achieve a leap in profits because of the Corona pandemic. In the past financial quarter, which lasted until the end of September, profits increased by 30 percent year-on-year to USD 13.9 billion. Revenue grew by twelve percent to USD 37.2 billion. "Demand for our cloud offerings led to a strong start to the financial year," said Amy Hood, CFO of Microsoft.

Disappointment all along the line

Microsoft's joker, the Cloud business, was responsible for the weak results of the Walldorf-based Company, which felt the full force of the crisis at SAP. The plan for the Cloud Division was for sales of EUR 8.3 to 8.7 billion, but now the figure is still EUR 8 to 8.2 billion.

Analysts lower targets

The development of the former model Company was also incomprehensible to the analysts. Goldman Sachs, for example, took the Walldorf-based Company off the "Conviction Buy List" and lowered its price target from EUR 160 to the current EUR 120. JP Morgan kept the value at "neutral" and left the price target at 120 EUR. The attempt by Hasso Plattner, former CEO and current Supervisory Board member, to support the share price at around EUR 100 by purchasing SAP shares with a value of EUR 250 million failed, for the time being. The share is currently still in free fall at just under EUR 94.

Still promising

One of the world's leading companies in the photovoltaic industry, JinkoSolar, was forced to give up feathers despite a buy recommendation from the leading Swiss bank. The target price was raised to USD 55. However, this means that the current share price of 57 USD is still above the target price. The quarterly figures announced for today should be exciting. In any case, there is no way around investing in solar stocks in the future.

When an unpredictable event occurs, humanity sees how powerless it is in the face of it. We saw this in the spring of last year with the outbreak of the Corona pandemic. Only since the approval of various vaccines has a normalization taken place. However, further, foreseeable problems are coming our way. According to expert forecasts, water demand will exceed supply by 40% as early as 2030. Some companies sense an opportunity to profit from the water shortage through novel technologies.

The markets are highly nervous at the moment. First, the Corona numbers went up again, then the Chinese real estate giant Evergrande was on the verge of collapse, and the supply chains are still not back in step. The result was falling indexes. That automatically leads to more fear, as the Fear and Greed Index also showed. Last week, the market calmed down slightly, and the fear index dropped from 27 to 34 points. In Germany, there is also the fact that more people have dabbled in equity investments due to a lack of interest rates. According to the Global Wealth Report, the purchase of securities grew by 65%. Many of the newly added shareholders know only rising stock markets. Consolidation would not hurt the market. On the other hand, there is hardly any alternative to investing money at the moment. It remains exciting.
