The markets are ignoring the uncertainty. Despite negotiations not yet concluded due to the increase in the debt ceiling in the USA and other geopolitical dangers, the leading German index DAX posted a new all-time high. The bulls continue to react, and the crash prophets have to admit defeat so far. Optimism also continues to prevail among individual stocks.

    Siemens Energy - Loss thanks to subsidiary

    Although strong headwinds blew from Spain at the beginning of the week, the share of the Munich-based power engineering company Siemens Energy closed the week with a gain of almost 10% and a new high for the year of EUR 24.24. Analysts see further upside potential after the figures for the second quarter. The US bank JP Morgan raised the price target from EUR 25 to EUR 28 with an "overweight" rating. The strong order intake provides more predictability for future revenues. The Swiss bank UBS, on the other hand, reiterated its price target of EUR 25 and its "buy" rating. The Munich-based company had clearly beaten expectations with all key figures in the second business quarter.

    Due to a strong increase in losses of the Spanish subsidiary Siemens Gamesa, the parent company Siemens Energy had to adjust its forecasts for the current fiscal year, which ends on September 30, downwards. The Munich-based company announced that the net loss compared to the previous year could not be kept at the level of minus EUR 712 million as forecast at the beginning of the year. Instead, it is expected to be higher by a low three-digit million amount. Furthermore, the profit margin before special effects is likely to be at the lower end of the forecast range of 1% to 3%.

    Nevertheless, Siemens Energy is seeing strong demand in all business areas and significantly increased sales targets. When taking into account exchange rate and portfolio effects, revenues are expected to increase by 10% to 12%, in contrast to the previously assumed 3% to 7%.

    Unabated growth at Saturn Oil & Gas

    With the release of figures for the first quarter of the 2023 financial year, the Canadian energy company revealed disproportionately strong growth compared to the same period last year. Several records were broken in the process. For example, 17,783 boe per day were produced in the first three months, about 140% more than in the first quarter of 2022. Due to the acquisition of the Ridgeback properties in the first quarter, daily production should be expanded to about 30,000 boe per day in the current second quarter, according to management.

    Meanwhile, adjusted EBITDA climbed to CAD 70.4 million, compared with CAD 16.3 million in the same period from 2022, representing a performance of 332%. Admittedly, two transformative acquisitions were responsible for the extreme performance. Despite weaker oil prices, revenues increased from CAD 69.1 million to CAD 131.4 million. The CAD 97.6 million net loss in the first year of 2022 was turned into a net profit of CAD 219.1 million. As of March 31, 2023, the earnings per share stood at CAD 1.58 per Saturn share, which is currently trading at CAD 2.25. In a sector comparison, the stock appears to be strongly undervalued. The analyst firm Eight Capital pointed out the undervaluation in its most recent study and assigned a price target of CAD 7.50. First Equity Research also sees a significant undervaluation, giving the oil producer a target price of CAD 6.30.

    TUI AG - Analysts see higher prices

    The share price did not want to take off after the capital measure, which was completed at EUR 5.55. Although the share is working on bottoming out, a breakout above the first weaker resistance area at EUR 6.49 has so far eluded the share. Instead, this level was increasingly used for further sell-offs. At the end of the week, the shares of the tourism and travel group were trading at EUR 6.08.

    The US investment bank Morgan Stanley commented positively, upgrading the Hanover-based company from "underweight" to "equalweight". The price target was left at GBP 7.40, the equivalent of EUR 8.51. According to analyst Jamie Rollo, the share is trading well below its target price. Although there are still longer-term concerns about the operating business and free cash flow, this seems to have already been factored into the prices. The tourism group's latest quarterly figures hint at possible forecast increases.

    Siemens Energy posted significant gains despite a profit warning due to higher losses at its Gamesa subsidiary. TUI continues to work on bottoming out. Saturn Oil & Gas reported significant jumps in earnings compared to the previous year.

    K+S, Globex Mining, Barrick Gold - Commodity stocks: Make money now

    • Mining
    • Gold
    • Commodities
    • fertilizer

    The commodities market in 2024 is characterized by high volatility, driven by strong demand, supply bottlenecks, and technological shifts to renewable energy, which make lithium and copper, for example, more expensive. In addition, inflation concerns make precious metals attractive as a hedge against inflation, while the central banks' interest rate policy is also a factor. Geopolitical tensions further disrupt supply chains and drive up prices. In this context, investments in commodity shares are becoming increasingly important. This form of investment allows investors to benefit indirectly from price fluctuations and the increase in the value of commodities without having to physically invest in the commodities themselves. We are, therefore, looking at three commodity companies today and analyzing their potential.

    Lynas, Almonty Industries, General Motors - Is the trade war escalating, and what is Tesla doing?

    • Mining
    • Tungsten
    • Electromobility
    • RareEarths

    The stock markets continue their record-breaking run. The Dow Jones Industrial has climbed to the 40,000-point mark for the first time in its history, and the DAX is also on the verge of breaking through the 19,000-point barrier. So far, so good, one might say. However, something is brewing in the background with regard to the trade war between the US and China, which could put enormous pressure on company margins in the future. As a result, critical commodities, in particular, are likely to be on the verge of a strong upward impulse.

    Almonty, Rheinmetall, Super Micro Computer - Commodity rally for defense and cloud

    • Mining
    • Tungsten
    • AI
    • Defense

    AI and defense stocks are setting the stock market on fire. Investors worldwide seem to have acquired a taste for artificial intelligence and defense. Wall Street is expecting a four-digit price target for Super Micro Computer soon. Rheinmetall is also enjoying full order books. Since the takeover of a Spanish ammunition manufacturer, production has also increased in this segment. Meanwhile, tensions between the largest economies, the USA and China, are growing enormously, which is reason enough for investors to take a look at Almonty Industries. The tungsten producer is on course for growth thanks to the restart of a mine in South Korea. Tungsten is rising in value as the increase in AI, and armaments are directly boosting demand for the rare earth metal. Who will win the stock market race?
