Inflation fears and uncertainty about the impact of the Omicron variant on the course of the Corona pandemic are currently driving stock prices. These are very volatile, with a downward tendency. Highflyers such as Plug Power and BioNTech have also corrected significantly. However, there is positive news about both companies. Plug Power reports further cooperation in the USA to reach the medium-term delivery targets, and BioNTech's vaccine protects against severe disease progression at Omicron. The vaccine is in short supply in Germany. There were several pieces of positive news recently from Prospect Ridge Resources. The gold explorer seems to be sitting on a real treasure.

    Prospect Ridge Resources: Another promising gold find

    For Prospect Ridge Resources Corp., the acquired historical concession areas are turning more and more into real gold mines. The Canadian Company wants to bring them back to life with modern technology, and the plan seems to be working. Prospect Ridge has published positive exploration data several times in the past months. Preliminary results were recently released from the Hugin zone in the recently acquired Knauss Creek concession area. Assays have returned up to 3.49 g/t gold in slots over 0.73 meters. The entire slot averaged 2.4 g/t over 1.54 meters. The Hugin Zone is located only a few kilometers from a direct rail link to the deepwater port at Kitimat. The nearest logging road is only 1.3 km away. In early December, Knauss Creek already reported assay data of up to 57.3 g/t gold and 116 g/t silver, 7.03% lead, 0.5% copper and 2.46% zinc.

    Knauss Creek is adjacent to the Holy Grail permit area. Holy Grail is the Prospect Ridge flagship located adjacent to the so-called "Golden Triangle" in western Canada. There are 12 historic mines on the 70,000-hectare property. Rocks have already been found on the property where gold can be seen with the naked eye. In addition, Holy Grail offers world-class infrastructure, including two highways, rail lines, power lines, and forest roads. In late November, exploration work revealed 117 g/t gold and 578 g/t silver. Furthermore, the property also has indications of other metals, such as copper, molybdenum and even lithium. With a market capitalization of around CAD 34 million, Prospect Ridge does not appear to be too highly valued. The share is now also traded in Germany. However, orders should only be placed with a limit. With a bit of patience, the share could become a goldmine for investors in the medium term.

    BioNTech: New order from Germany soon?

    After the vaccination campaign for 5 to 11 year olds, there is again positive news about BioNTech. A preliminary evaluation in South Africa has shown that the COVID-19 vaccine from the Mainz-based Company prevents "only" 33% of infections in Omicron but protects 70% against severe disease. The data refers to a double vaccination. The booster should, therefore, further improve the efficacy. The analysis was based on around 211,000 positive test results, of which about 78,000 were found to contain the Omicron variant. In addition, BioNTech should soon benefit from new orders. Health Minister Karl Lauterbach announced Wednesday that the Company's vaccine inventory was insufficient for the booster campaign. He also said that the quantities already ordered for the first quarter of 2022 were too low. Accordingly, demand for the BioNTech vaccine is likely to remain high, especially since booster vaccinations are also in full swing in the United Kingdom, where Omicron is expected to become the predominant variant as early as this week.

    Plug Power enters into cooperation in the USA

    The Plug Power share has recently corrected significantly. Within four weeks, the share price fell from EUR 39 to EUR 26. However, the hydrogen specialist from the United States seems to be doing well operationally. A partnership in the home market USA was recently reported. With the transport Company Certarus, Plug Power wants to expand its local delivery capacities further. Certarus is a leader in North America in the transportation of compressed natural gas. Plug Power's customers will be supplied with green hydrogen via this established logistics platform with a fleet of compressed natural gas trailers. Deliveries of up to 10 tons per day are scheduled to begin as early as the first quarter of next year. Plug Power is thus taking another step toward meeting its medium-term goals. By 2028, up to 1,000 tons of green hydrogen will be delivered to customers worldwide every day.

    When the stock market environment stabilizes, positive corporate news will again come into focus. The BioNTech share will continue to be driven by the development of the Corona pandemic, even though the Company is working hard on research in the cancer area. Prospect Ridge is still largely unknown. But if positive results continue to be reported, that could change quickly. Plug Power underpins its leading position in the hydrogen sector with its cooperation with Certarus.

    Next share price jump? TUI, Aixtron, and Desert Gold

    Is the Aixtron share about to make its next leap? The shock of the profit warning was digested with a rise of over 10%. Three analysts recommend the share as a "Buy". Desert Gold is also ripe for a new rally. After more than doubling in a short space of time at the beginning of the year, it consolidated textbook style. Will it soon jump to a new yearly high? The Company is certainly not expensive, and experts consider a gold price of USD 3,000 possible. Important drilling results are also on the horizon. TUI is currently performing well operationally. The summer season business is booming, and the bankruptcy of a competitor is providing additional momentum. Nevertheless, the share is trending sideways. Could the purchase of an island be the trigger?

    Mega rally on the cards - 500% plus is likely too low an estimate! Evotec, Desert Gold, Cogia, VCI Global, and Lufthansa

    The stock market keeps rising and rising - this much is revealed by the ever-new highs of prominent indices such as the NASDAQ 100, S&P 500, or the Nikkei index. However, a closer look reveals some inconsistencies. For example, only 6% of all traded stocks are currently reaching new highs, while over 70% of all listed stocks have fallen since the beginning of the year. In short, global liquidity is aggregated in just a few blockbuster stocks, with the rest being left behind. Such bubbles already occurred in 1999, 2007, and 2015, followed by a 25% to 50% correction. When exactly this will happen, no one knows, but the party is likely to continue for a while due to high liquidity. Gold and silver are in the process of forming interesting breakout formations. Now is the time to pick the cherries!

    Innovation meets tradition: How Mercedes-Benz Group, Desert Gold, and Amazon are shaping the future

    The global economy is facing a variety of challenges and opportunities. While vehicle manufacturers such as Mercedes are adapting their strategies, new opportunities are opening up in other sectors. Mercedes is expanding the combustion engine range of its S-Class and offering models with both a petrol engine and an electric battery. The German Association of the Automotive Industry is concerned about the EU's punitive tariffs on Chinese electric vehicle imports. It predicts that the impending trade conflict will intensify, particularly with regard to rare earth metals. In these uncertain times, it is all the more important to add some gold to the portfolio as a hedge. One candidate with high growth potential is the exploration company Desert Gold, which is investigating an outstanding area with over 1 million ounces of gold resources in Mali, Africa. Those who prefer data to new gold will be pleased with Amazon's latest strategic move. The Seattle-based company has not only brought on board a smart AI leader but also the entire team along with AI. Where is an investment worthwhile?
